AO R2: Ancic def. Karlovic 5-7, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3

Expectedly tight match here. One surprise is that there weren't any tiebreaks. Good win for Ancic.

Karlovic continues his winless 5 set record. What's he 0-10 now? Also, wasn't he up 40-0 at 4-4 in the fourth?

Ivo was robbed in the 5th

Ancic is just a joke of a player.

Mario Great fighting as always. I want those volley three times a day to make up for months of deprivation Keep going.
Ivo played easily the best return game I've ever seen him play to break and take the 3rd 6:4

Mario
I already told on another thread, if match goes to 5 sets, Mario will win for sure.
Good luck against Simon

I picked Karate Kid to win this one. One might say that it's an expected result and one might be right.

Oh no, two of my faves playing against each other! I will root for Gilles as he is likely to go further in the tournament, Mario is just too fragile imo.
