San Jose 2R: Verdasco def. Karlovic 7-5 7-5



Even 89% first serves couldn't do it for Dr. Ivo in set 2.

Good match, Ivo was playing beyond his normal standards from the baseline, Nando was in great shape.

Mental clown on the bps from ivo

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Defeating old and pumped out Karlovic is a form barometer indeed.

Seems like the faster surface didn't lead to Dr Ivo's success.

When Nando wins, 10 replies in over 12 hours. When he loses, probably 30+ .

Let's see if Verdasco can string a few good performances to go into the lcay season with good confidence, he has a lot of points to defend then.

Re: San Jose 2R: Verdasco def. Karlovic 7-5 7-5

always good to see an all-serve clown lose, i hope karlovic takes the hint and retires asap.

Because everyone is aware of Mugdasco's clown mentality(or to be more more specific- brainless) and his throw out is a matter of time.
