PHM d. Dr. Ivo 7-6(9) 6-4

Clutch by PHM; Ivo falls apart in last game. Bring on Nadal.

Karlovic was in amazing service form (23 aces) but didn't save first break point of the match. PHM saved 2 sp's in the tie-break.

Ivo hit 18 aces in the first set and still lost it. Even though he did win more return points in that set he couldn't get a mb in the tie break. And getting broken when serving to stay in the match reminded me of all those 5th sets he lost, when he's serving good enough to hold serves every game till that one when he's in danger to lose the match.
Anyway, congrats PHM and I hope he beats Nadal

Ivo is seriously useless in tiebreaks. Not just bad, but really, really useless.

Ivo had to toss in a second serve at 9-10 in the tiebreaker, came in behind it, PHM hit a decent forehand return, not great, and Ivo flailed a forehand volley about 8 feet over the baseline

yeah, so useless that yesterday in the third-set tiebreaker against Monfils he had five service points and blasted five aces

He's won 41% of them in the last year, with the best serve in the history of tennis, and near constant practice at them. That's simply laughably bad.
