Olivier Rochus d. Ivo Karlovic 7-6, 6-7, 6-4

Olivier played really well. He stepped up to the baseline and read Ivo's serve correctly a lot and just unleashed when he got a racket on it.

The handshake was very cute

Re: Olivier Rochus d. Ivo Karlovic 7-6, 6-7, 6-4

3 mp rochus

Rochus def. Karlovic 7-6(0) 6-7(3) 6-4

Aces: Karlovic 26, Rochus 2

Points won on first serve: Karlovic 84%, Rochus 87%

Points won on 2nd serve: Karlovic 45%, Rochus 63%

Double faults: Karlovic 9, Rochus 3

Total points: Karlovic 95, Rochus 107

Ivo was clearly tired and double faulted more than expected. He had no 2nd serve double faults, so it wasn't a mechanical thing.

The Rochus first serve percentage boggles the mind. How can a guy that small win so many first serve points? He apparently doesn't have a big serve. Karlovic exposed Ljubicic's first serve, but not Rochus.

Good run Karlovic. Unfortunately, you have temporarily made my main vBet black list.

Ivo could barely return serve. He made so many errors into the net or hitting returns wide. Even on second serves he was just dumping backhands into the net. Olivier just stood back and watched errors fly by on his service games.

Well done, Ollie!!

I like that "lives and dies by the serve"!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!
