Ivo Karlovic beats James Blake 6-7(4), 7-6(11), 6-4

Great match, nice to see it go 3 sets.

Ivo served amazingly with 29 aces. In the 2nd set TB he won 3 straight points with aces and I believe 5 of his 13 points were on aces.

Funny thing is that Ivo only won 26 points on Blake's serve over 3 sets.

That's insane. Karlovic can't even play tennis. All he can do is serve. How could James lose to him?

Who will win between Fish and Karlovic?

Well Done Ivo the best match he ever played in his career.

James served for the match at 5-3 in the second set and was 30-0 but ivo won 4 straight points to break James. Plus he also had 5 match points(one of them was on his serve.)
Nice fighting ivo.

Blake is a compulsive choker.
