HE has tried to move up for the second serve but you can see he gets caught by the kick and has to hit it above his shoulder. Actually I haven't seen him moving back on the second serve - probably because he is trying to cut off the spin. Maybe Richard isn't as stupid as you think....

And WOW - RIchard consolidates the break

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

Too bad this match is played in half dark with no shot spot - it must be extremely difficult to call some of these shots/serves.

Think Richard has settled down - stopped his panic, starting to get a read on Karlovic's serve and Ivo has cooled off a bit.

Allez Richie - some good returns with smart positioning (HUMM, HUMM )

Vald - are you listening to the "Brillant" announcers - praising RIchard for THINKING on the court to right the ship?

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

First informative bit of info from the announcers- Karlovic is 3-13 in 5 set matches! which is worse than rIchard at 5-11!!

Well yea, but you know those announcers, always opening their big mouth.

Richard looking like a different player out there now though, he's got a rhythm and shots are firing. Could this be a Roddick/Wimbledon come back? (Probably just cursed him for suuure).

Meh. At least he went down fighting... unlike first couple sets. But the hole was too deep to dig out.
