Belgrade SF: Kubot def. Karlovic 7-6(0) 6-2

Perfect match by Kubot, first Pole in the ATP final in singles since Wojtek Fibak in Basel 1983 (lost to Vitas Gerulaitis).
Ivo had 4 BP's in the 2nd set, the first one at 0:0, triple breeak point at 2:4 - Kubot saved them all thanks to good serving.

Kubot probably is going to be destroyed by D'Joke in the final but it doesn't matter, it's absolutely the best week of his tennis life.

Fibak must be loving this, the Polish LaLo loving life this week.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yeah Voo, perfect match by Kubot, he demolished Ivo in the first set TB and broke him twice in the second set Fibak reached that final 26 years ago, so we were very patient Fantastic result!
