Entertaining tiebreak. Always edge of the seat stuff with Karlovic in a deciding breaker

Awesome match .

Nadal dug deep but Ivo had him worried there for a sec

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

Great effort Ivo.
Karlovic didn't played good at the Tiebreak, so many UE.

Nadal isn't playing so good, I predict a lose with JMDP.

Karlovic made a match of this, nothing to be ashamed of. Nadal...let's just say I'll be surprised if he wins the tournament.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Haase-Del Potro-Wawrinka-Kavcic-Giraldo-Berankis

Karlovic played awesome

It was 5 all in 1st set, Nadal serving, and Karlovic broke him to love with 4 straight dazzling points, including a dropshot that stunned the Spaniard ranked #1 in the world.

Pure class from Nadal as the match went on, dealing one too many passing shots for the tall serving monster.

Hats off to both players

Very entertaining.

Except for that second set.

I enjoyed this match. Great points at the end. @ Rafa

I'm very interested to see Delpo vs. Nadal.

Re: IW QF: Nadal def Karlovic 5-7, 6-1, 7-6(9)

7-6(7) not 7-6(9)

Nice fight by Ivo but really he hasn't got game to beat Nadal in the 3rd set tie-break. I'm surprised he won 7 points in it. Partially thanks to Nadal's inexistent 1st serve in the TB

Karlovic won inside. The pusher couldnt handle him 80% of the match. Del Potro 6-3 6-4.

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

Glad Dr. Ivo lost -never been a big fan of him. Can't say I enjoyed Rafa's fist pumping, but credit to him for pulling it out. On to Delpo!

Rafa

What a tough TB for him, but at the end he got the job done


Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer

Rafa surely hasn't been great these last two days, but his fight and determination have really shone through at critical moments. He really starting picking up the serve at the end of the third and that helped him through the TB. Great performance from Ivo as well, both guys dug very deep. Very happy Rafa is through.
