Very happy Edu won here, but Ivo is not fully fit, obviously, with a shoulder issue. Good that Edu took advantage. He also needs to be Flo Mayer in R2, as that is extremely winnable.

Schwank bagelling Karlovic just seems impossible.

a serve bot like karlomug whose serve is not working has as much chance as my janitor to win an atp match

Karlovic is injured on his shoulder. Saw him last week in Dusseldorf and he could not serve, he could not hit the ball with power and he was only few minutes on court before quit practice. Was expected thing today.

Injured, Ivo played just to collect the 1r money. Life in the US is expensive, anything you can get is welcomed.

Ivo shouldn't have played. Spare himself for probably his last grass season.
But glad for Schwank, hope he can take Mayer out.

From Karlo,

I came, I saw, I iced my shoulder, I ate croissant, I called travel agency.

Why are so many players this season just showing up with no intention of winning, just to pick up a paycheck? Is the money situation THAT bad? This is pathetic. Steals opportunities from players who could give a real effort.

Great to see Schwank back again and with any luck, he can beat Mayer in the next round and get his ranking up.

ivo karlovic ‏@ivokarlovic

In case of Roddick I agree, he is a multimillionaire, he doesnt need this 18 000 euro paycheck from 1st round. Karlovic is not rich (probably), his career is almost over, he has family to provide,flights from US and back are expensive, I wouldnt be so harsh towards him. After all, he got his spot in MD fair and square, no wild cards wasted here.

This is tough world, noone wants to play injured and to look like a damn fool out there . If this was 250 tourney, I´m pretty sure he would have withdrawn before match.

Well, PMac certainly knows all about picking up nice pay checks while producing atrocious results. This is no different than the job he's done so far as head of USTA player developement :D
He's getting proverbially bageled by the developmental efforts of so many other countries with less resources while he keeps making 700k a year :yeah:

I'm actually ok with this result.

I really like Schwank, and I thought he would have a better chance of making R3 than Ivo.
But Mayer would probably beat him.

IDK... In the end, it doesn't even matter.

It's just who would be roasted by Raf

Good to see Dr. Ivo not taking himself too seriously and making fun of himself. :-)
