DC R1: Karlovic def. Soeda 7-6(4) 6-1 6-4 Croatia wins 3-2

Well done big Ivo, he was the star of the tie. Tough QF for them in Argentina, but

Only 1 tiebreak in his 2 singles matches, once he got the 1st set. The big man settled down, hit the forehand well and came into the net at the right moments.

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".

Karlovic never played this good, like last 3 singles matches.

This is actually his 2nd time made Croatia through, 1st one was vs Brasil in 2008. From that time he has 6:2 in singles (all live rubbers) and 2:2 in doubles.

This is first time Ivo won all 3 points for Croatia. Only Ljubicic (x5), Ancic (x1), Cilic (x1) did it. He is in really nice company. All of them won "live" matches. While Ivanisevic 7 times won all 3 points but 4 time 3rd match was "dead" match. It was "live" - "dead" ratio 1:2 for Croatia and 2:2 for Yugoslavia. Only he didn't lost single set in one tie (9:0 vs germany in 2002).

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

Dr. Ivo, fantastic job. A genuine DC-hero!

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
