Stepanek in 5? Probably Karlovic will blow it...

Re: WWW AO R128 Stepanek vs Karlovic

Has Ivo ever won a 5 setter? Time to break the drought.

Hopefully this time it will be Ivo, probably again 3-4 tie-breaks

Yes, he beat Blake in DC last year coming from 2 sets down

Re: WWW AO R128 Stepanek vs Karlovic

Stepanek in 4. He returned Roddick's serve rather well last week, and once the rally gets going he is too good for Karlovic. Only way Ivo wins this match is if Stepanek gets in his own way.

Re: WWW AO R128 Stepanek vs Karlovic

Stepanek in 5, Karlovic with 50+ (60+) aces, Radek really can't read his serve
