The Dr gets another win and they are all good wins for him.

Did Massu get a break in the whole match?

no breaks for Massu, he had 3 chances to break

Ivo was 1/11 in BP conversion, he could and should have closed this match earlier

Any match with Massu that jerk takes at least 2 hours and a half.

Karlovic is a good enough player off the ground now that he should be able to get a break in two sets of tennis with Massu but it can be seen as a good sign that he got the job done in a tight match when he presumably didn't play his best. It wasn't that long ago that he never won matches without this sort of scoreline.

He took 1 hour 49 to lose 3 and 2 to Nadal last year and over five hours to lose to Sela in four in DC recently.

on serving games from massu there were 50-60 seconds between points and I doubt that there were many baseline rallies there

There seemed to be about a 10 minute break at 5-5 in the 1st set. Anyone know what that was about?

I think Ivo is better at breaking serve on slower surfaces actually. You wouldn't think it would help him in rallies, but maybe it's because of the service return itself.

Massu is taking aim at Spadea's record

Great revenge to Ivo for a loss to Massu in Rome qualies this year 7-6(2) 6-7(5) 6-7(0) :yeah:
I was following the scoreboard in the 1st set. Ivo led 3:0 with two mini-breaks, then Massu had set point at 6:5*.

For Massu nine losses in a row and it probably doesn't help that he has been close a bunch of times:

3-6 in the third to Ferrer
4-6 in the third to Darcis
Five hour loss to Sela
6-7 in the third to Lapentti
4-6 in the third to Karlovic

I'm guessing Ivo took an injury time-out as Massu was briefly a heavy favourite on betfair.

Ivo hit 4 aces in a row in I think, his 2nd service game of the 2nd set fact fans.
