AO R1 Karlovic def. Stepanek 2-6 7-6 6-4 3-6 6-4

Nice to see Ivo avoiding a Grand Slam banana skin, perhaps indicating that he is finally able to produce some of his best tennis in one of the big four.

Pretty boisterous crowd out there as well - Stepanek did his usual good job of pumping up both sets of supporters!

Karlovic was receiving much better than Radek..you can check the match statics to see that, plus more than 30 aces

All of us thinking Radek was better...:retard:

I did not expect this . Radek was one of the worst match-ups for Ivo . But anyway great win

I don't think Stepanek looks ugly in his ATP profile.

Thank you for not reporting my post.
