Well, I think it's easy to see that this guy is in good form at the moment. Well done Ivo and hope it goes well for wimbledon!!

he must be exhausted if he will get to the final here also
i don't see someone stops him and it'll be 3rd in a row

luckily, his style of play doesn't make him too tired. after all, every 3rd point on his serve today was an ace and i'm sure that another third were unreturnable serves or easy volleys.

Why, Ljubicic was never good at grass and Karlovic is one hell of the player for this surface.

Exactly, Ljubicic never had the biggest results on grass and ran into somebody who is on a hot streak on that surface. Ljubicic even took him to a third set tiebreak. Ljubicic didn't have the best results during the last weeks on clay, but it's hardly a surprise for me that he lost this match and I wouldn't critisize him too much for THIS loss today against Karlovic.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
