The one game that I saw Federer served 3 aces and one unreturnable serve.
Oh, nice stats! Should've watched the match, definitely.
I missed their meeting in Miami, and now this. Thanks for posting the stats.
oneandonlysh, I agree with you that Oli has great hands, he really can do so much and can construct some beautiful points. Once he reads the serve well, I think he's able to return it well enough to a "neutral zone", so I guess Karlovic's serve isn't the hardest to read for him and he must've reached for quite enough of them to get a chance to rally with the giant, where he has a better chance to win the point. There's also a matter of serving first serves consistently, don't know about their match's stats so...
Nice to hear that Roger played some good points and they were in for some good rallies!
