IW R4 Dr Ivo continues playing good and def Montañes 7-6(7) 6-2

He was 6-6 (6-3) in the 1st set.
When Albert saved that Set-point with Ivo's serve I thought he was going to lose the set (and probably the match).
As usual in this tournament, excelent volleys and FH.

Also, 2 breaks vs Montañes is really good for the record.
GREAT IVO!

Will be a good match against Nadal. If he can keep it up, surely he'll have a shot on that match-up.

Yeah, it was probable because Montanes is amazingly good in long, at least 14-point tie-breaks. Ivo was lucky at 6:6 because his 1st serve was "out", linesman didn't call it, Montanes realized too late.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Seriously Miami may not want Ivo in the draw. He's a threat to big name high draw players and they wouldn't want to lose a big draw early. While his fan support has begun to grow lately, I still think he may not be worth the "risk" to them.

Ivo laying the smackdown.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
