Doha R1: Karlovic def. Stakhovsky 6-7(1) 6-2 7-6(3)

Only 8 aces by Ivo But never got broken
A good win over a decent opponent
Next match vs Youzhny or Gulbis.

Clearly better player won . Doha is playing lightening fast . Don't remember when Kralovic in 18 service games had 8 aces, not even on clay . Vamos atp

well, Ivo is better on clay than Sergey, so maybe the surface was an advantage for him

Re: Doha R1: Karlovic def. Stakhovsky 6-7(1) 6-2 7-6(3)

One of Nadal's requests for participation was putting the extra slow surface and Ivo in his quoter so he could beat him without third set breaker

Second was normally Kolya and Tsonga out from his half . And if it is possible Fed - Kolya in the first round

And all that normally depended where Dodig would choose to play

Bizarre, but very good sign that he wins without a lot of aces.

this 6-2 sets happened because they were so impressed with Ivo's serve so they gave him to serve 6 times in second set while Stakhovsky was serving just two times

Come on, Doc!
Keep in the good way.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)
