Very close match.
Congrats Dr Ivo. but please don't choke next time :wavey:
but full credit to sam though. He saved of those mps on ivo's serves.
Very intertaining match i suppose. :lol:

Fun 16-14 TB there. Got a little scared when Ivo DFed on match point (I think *12-11 and he'd also served for match up *6-5 in the TB) and then proceeded to drop his next serve point to give Querrey a set point at *13-12. The Dr. pulled it out with some breath taking returns though!

I believe Sam saved 7 match points in the tiebreak before finally succumbing. Ivo led 6-3 and double-faulted on another of his match points so he really almost choked this one away. Good fight from Sam. I was rooting for Ivo but as the tiebreak went on I was hoping for a third set.

Dr Ivo is a serving machine. i am waiting for him to hit 50 aces in a match. could happen at Wimby.

Any time you win a TB 16-14 you can't choke too badly. It takes a lot of clutch point to get to 14-14 and then you have to hold your nerve for 2 more points.

ivo had mps on his serve at 6-5 and 12-11(i think). the second one was a df
sam had a set point on his serve as well

He once hit 51 aces at Wimbledon against Braccialli a couple of years ago.

And after the df at 12-11 he had the balls to go for a 2nd serve ace to save set point a few points later! I like seeing him do something with his 2nd serve for a change.

27 Aces from Dr. Ivo to Sam's 9.

It's clear who the real Ace machine is.

i meant almost choked.(lost two of those seven match points on his own serve.) but thank goodness his opponent doens't really used to playing grass court tennis. Ivo's experience got him through next round.
Ivo hadn't been broken on grass so far. ;)
He did face a couple of Bps against nadal and siranni at Queens.

Next up: Seppi or Schwank.

Hard to break on grass 2008 :
Ivo Karlovic 5 matches played, 60/60 service games won
Roger Federer 5 matches played 49/49 service games won

How many times was he broken last in Wimbledon? I think only 1 or 2 times, so unfortunately just-serve tennis doesn`t usually save Dr Ivo in big matches.

just once last year against santoro.(that is the final set.)
he broke santoro twice but santoro took the TBs which proved costly he eneded up losing it due to that. Santoro won with scoreline 3-6 7-6 7-6 3-6 6-4

27 aces in 2 sets :D:D
He should defend his title, he seems to be the best player left in the draw. Ajmo :rocker2:
