Ivo's playing great. He won 40% of return points! Very un-Ivo like stat. He really seems to have stepped his game up. He looks much faster and smoother on court. I missed this match, but in previous match he was looking much more comfortable with the one hand drive backhands. I'd put him as favorite against Ljubo, but credit to Ljubo, he's really picked his game up and resurrected a career that I really thought was over about a year ago.

Interesting result with Ivo losing serve 2 times in the first set which is very rare...and then breaking Julien 5 times which is even more outstanding
(I guess the courts are truly very slow )
