Queens R1: Karlovic def. [WC] Hewitt 6-3 6-2

Scoreline says it all. Lleyton was brutally poor, but Ivo played a great match, hit some awesome forehand returns and forehands from the baseline. 22 aces and only four points lost on first serve. Lleyton served badly, didn't move very well and didn't show very much commitment, very flat performance, which is surprising to see from him.

Pretty embarrassing scoreline considering how bad Dr. Ivo has been. Hewitt must be playing at about 10%.

With Hewitt's game, when he's losing baseline rallies to Ivo Karlovic it's a serious time to contemplate retirement unless he's confident that he can play better.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Karlovic peaking for grass? He was injured on his shoulder right, couldn't serve fully at RG?
Or was it precaution?

22 aces from Dr. Ivo, his first serve looked amazing

Sad to watch Rusty like this. This guy was once #1 and now he's being manhandled by Karlovic from the baseline

I really hope he can regain some form and have a good ending to his career, this was pretty horrible.

Ivo had a shoulder injury during clay season, now his shoulder is better and it's grass season so nothing embarrassing about it.

Re: Queens R1: Karlovic def. [WC] Hewitt 6-3 6-2

At 1-1 40:30 in first set on Karlovic serve. Ivo has played 9 points after serve (100 % first serve) and look how !

He won 7 of them by 7 aces. And the 2 he lost was 2 return winners from Hewitt. Impressive tennis

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem
