Just hope he doesn't give up

He's playing very averagely I think.
Karlovic IS Playing VERY well and frustrating the HELL out of RIchard - ever seen RIchard toss a chair? Starting to be a runaway train now - slow down and maybe Ivo will get out of his zone a bit.

Richard's forehand is so pathetic, Karlovic attacks it with his backhand!!

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

woohoo...on the scoreboard in the second set...!!!!
even if he's having a crap day at the office, he's really gotta mask that better, and turn that frustration into tempered aggression, and belt those bh and fh into winners.

That's what the pressure of knowing you can't break his serve does to an opponent (or at least to RIchard). 95% first serves won

You got to admit Karlovic is HOT and Richard is out of it. Karlovic could probably attack Richard's backhand with his drop shot right now.

apart from the serve he's not playing that good.

Richard is quite poor today. Disappointing

Richard did not even try to change position on return of serve. Thinking on court is not his strong part, but you gotta instinctively realize that at least.

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

joins the conversation...
not a great match richard is digging his own grave instead of trying to break karlovic (which is nearly impossible thanks to his 7 ft height) he should keep his own service game! but he makes so many mistakes then... i still think richard has played some beauties out there

I think Ivo is playing well - in addition to his serve he's played some smart shots, is covering net very well and is hitting his ground strokes solidly. On the other hand Richard was out of the match after he lost his serve in the first set.

And a BH miss on his only chance to break...

Yeah this. His forehand has got better this year but I think his return of serve has got worse.

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

HOLY SHIT - IT's a break - see what happens when you slow down...

What's the chance RIchard holds his serve?

Karlovic have Richard opening, nice to finally see intensity and that he cares. First two sets, it was none of that.
