Cincinnati R1: I. Karlovic beats G. Monfils 6-4, 6-7(5), 7-6(2)

Karlovic is more than a big serve and achieves only service break

In this match it was really obvious big serve isn't his only weapon, but it's good to have that big serve too when it gets tight. And in the final set TB he hit only aces on his serve

Monfils exiting another tournament early, showing he's definitely a more powerful tennis player than Hewitt ever was.

5 first serve aces and 2 mini breaks that's all he needed in the TB

Monfils is worthless. Cost me money.

It was actually 8 aces in the last 8 services.
