What a fight Lleyton. Most players would've folded after being two sets down, especially after two long tiebreak sets.

Karlovic sucks. His serve is clearly his one and only weapon (awesome as that one weapon is).

Karlovic also shattered the record for most backhand slice returns missed

I watched Eurosport live on television. Posted the thread when Karlovic missed his volley/smash.

He simply can't play best of five matches. When Hewitt took the third, I would be willing to bet my kidney he would win

As soon as Hewitt won the third set I knew he'd win the match. Karlovic is pathetic in best of 5 matches.
