Amazing 34:24... Moya has 33:12 (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=93356&highlight=irrelevant)

Let me tell you something... From all the active players, only Isner has a good prospect to beat Ivo's record.
:sad: :confused:
Karlovic (after win against Berdych) has 11-2 in the "match points saved" - the best percentage from all active players. One thing is certain for me - Karlović is an unusual freak in ATP history.

Isner has fallen on the wayside a bit, just lost a few hours ago in the QF of a $25K challenger in arctic Canada.

Karlovic is in the SF of a $1 million ATP tournament.

Their fortunes have diverged since the US Open.

Carlos Moya has a better record if you ask me:

33-12 is better than Ivo´s 34-24 :rolleyes: :devil:
Ivo won 1 more but also lost 12 more.
