No, Karlovic got to 6-5 first and then broke to take the second set.

Another close but no cigar for Frank.

No..

I'm so pissed... A player without anything but a serve beating an up and comming player with a very, very nice game!!! I'd like to see Ivo play with an average serve to see how he would fare... He would not be close to the top 500...

Listen Asshole. Frank is an underrated player. Ge can't win any matches in main draw with his excellent groundstrokes. Karlo did a better job than frank. So STFU. Why is Frank rated above 50.??

Here is Karlo's break record in San Jose
vs Garcia Lopez 1 break
vs Blake 2 breaks
vs Fish 1 break
vs Becker 1 break
vs Murray 1 break

He much better returner than some of those challenger players who can't even get into top 50 despite having good groundstrokes. Karlo is injury prone.(Always injury after another otherwise he is a top 20.) Do you know Mike Russell?? Same story is with him always getting injured. Atleast is good to see Karlo Mike on the tour.

i feel so bad for FRANK...he has been really close with so many matches of late....he just needs that one break through match against a top 50 player(perferably top 25) he has a good game but I guess its that mental breakthrough that he needs....poor canada...we suck when it comes to top tennis players!!!(except Nestor of course in doubles)

I know...he keeps coming so close to a breakthrough...he almost beat gonzalez and was close to roddick in much of that match. Is he ever going to get better?

Your head is probably in Ivo's ass if you can't agree that a part from his serve, he has nothing! Yeah, Frank's groundstrokes are head and shoulders above Ivo but if the guy hits 30 aces, it's pretty tough to hit one So you STFU, get your head out of his ass and start realizing that Karlovic sucks.. Wait until the clay season and you'll know what I mean And what the hell does "Why is Frank rated above 50'' mean? Why is he not ranked in the top 50? He'll get there soon...

And you are damn right about Frank being underrated... it's probably not what you meant but it's not my fault that you can't express yourself while having your head deep in Ivo's ass!!

that is because Dancevic is a choker, he faced like 10 Bp's how the hell can karlovic get 10 bp's?

If anything Dancevic should of forced a tb in the 3rd not get broken...

He is getting there.. A step at a time. He is much better then last year and next year, he'll be even better. He's taking sets from Roddick, Gasquet, Gonzalez, Murray, Hewitt and company! The next step is winning and often, people would want that to happen now and when it's not, they are questionning everything. RELAX! It will happen... No one wants to see Dancevic close to him in their draw, except if his name is Federer...
