Happy for Ivo. That WC situation could have helped him to do his best at IW.

Laughable scoreline, at least there's hope Nadal will play a TB before the semifinals

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

miami needs to sack up and at least give him a qwc at this point...i mean, seriously?
he's playing some of the best tennis on tour

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Simon is one of the most stupid pushers on the planet.

Nadal vs Karlovic and Fed vs Raonic. The giants threat!

Re: IW R3: Doc Karlovic performs surgery on Gilles Simon 6-3 6-3

well... as far as i saw, simon didnt "push" Ivo to the limit.. the ball speed was quite handable for Karlovic and he was doing fine in the balls exchanges

no way Simon was winning this with that poor strategy

The Dr played very well. He only lost one point in his serve in the 1st set. and only 2 points in 1st serve the whole match

Amazing

Looks like Ivo may be back to the form he was showing prior to his injury last year. He's finally getting a few breaks of serve. Prior to this tournament he was breaking an abysmal 3% of return games for the year, worse than he had ever done. Last year he was at a career high for break %.

Very impressive performance by Doc Ivo. Haven't seen him play this well for a very long time.

3 breaks in 2 sets for Dr Ivo is really good.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

WOW. Now I thought people were jumping the gun when Ivo beat Ferrer, David was awful. Tonight, though, Ivo played really, really well. Served great and overpowered Simon in the rallies. Simon wasn't good but Ivo really dictated play from the beginning. Very impressed by his level, you have to wonder if the Miami situation spurred this on.
