Of course, what we wanna know about Ivo is the ace counter.
24... And 77% 1st serve, winning 75% of it.

What I always say: Tennis win with a Karlovic win.
The beauty thing about tennis is the Multi-Styles. And the style Karlovic has, not so many players does.
He's not an all-serve cannon, he has a huge serve, but he also has a huge forehand (Scary forehand...) and a beautiful slice backhand.

Also, his volley technique is pretty good.

Love the style, love Ivo. Tennis wins. :)

jurgen is definitely on the decline singles-wise, might be a doubles specialist eventually which is pretty depressing.

Ivo's stats are impressive as hell considering how windy it is out there today.

:yeah: Ivo! Good job man.
Melzer indeed seems to be on the way out.

dissapointing from Melzer. time to retire from singles and go full-time to doubles. is this really the same guy who upset DJokovic at Roland Garros a few years ago? I guess not.

Ivo love you and wish you the best of luck for the rest of the tournament.

Possible foreshadowing of an upset ridden AO?

:lol: Didn't Melzer finish in 3rd place at Kooyong? Obviously that didn't mean much :tape:

I was at this match (for the first two sets).

Karlovic was serving well (as in, even for his standards). Melzer was serve volleying on everything (even second serves), and Karlovic was making a lot of returns. Melzer's volleys started to go off a bit, and he got broken.

I suspect Melzer was trying to keep the points short, cos it was very hot. I think he also had the shits with the Croation fans.

Excellent result, Karlovic is a class act.

Had a sneaky feeling about this. There's always a decent chance that players that are around Melzer's ranking are gonna lose to Karlovic, even when they're the favourites, just because he's so damn hard to play against.

Melzer isn't good enough to beat Legends like Karlovic.

I'm asking myself when Jurgen will be finally back... he should focus more on tennis and less on other things, he really has to fight more if he wants to be back at his standards.

Karlovic :shrug: Never impressed me, except for a big serve I see absolutely nothing in him.

Thatīs what happens when you donīt follow tennis for a long time. You get delusional.

Melzerīs current ranking is his standard. 2010-2011 was out of the ordinary.
