Yes! When he got a second serve return in the tiebreak at 7 all, I knew he had to pounce and Rendy did. 35 aces from Ivo wasn't enough. Both guys won around 90% of first serve points. Rendy saved two BPs at 2 all in the third set. Great win for him, he sure does love the grass.

Disgusting result, Ivo totally fucked up on serve in the last breakers especially the first when he had 5-3 and 1 more serve to go 6-3 and couldn't buy an ace.Same story in the 3rd to many 2nd serves on crunch time.

Also had 5 bp.s..

Karlovic plays so many all tiebreak matches :lol:

The daily updates you deliver are very rare in FITD management, unfortunately. When I used to manage I gave daily updates as well.

No he doesn't, he's 19/23 on it, last year was 3/3, this result is bad for tennis.

Yeah, that's unfortunate. But I seriously think the manager for Queen's doesn't know how to manage. It's his first time, and I don't even know if he has the spreadsheet.

Looks like a typical Karlovic match. No one can break him so it goes to tie breaker where he loses because his ROS is so useless that even a billion aces can't get him the W. All his opponent needs to do is get one ball back and he loses the point.

Has Karlovic ever broken anyone on grass?

Actually, his return is slightly better on grass than other surfaces.

He's the worst returner on the ATP tour overall since 1991 - since stats are recorded - but there are four guys with even few % of return games won than him on grass.

He breaks in 9% of his return games on grass. He also breaks 9% of his return games overall, which means he's a bit better on grass since it's the surface where it's most difficult to break.

Did I miss something? Karlovic has a great ROS? Am I confusing him with a player that isn't just a serve machine?

You managed more fail in 6 words than I did in my whole post.

I was being facetious when I said has he ever broken serve on grass. But 9% is pretty terrible, even on grass.

Karlovic is so one dimensional he makes Roddick look like he's versatile.

:confused: Talk about stating the obvious. How does it make sense to compare Karlovic to Roddick, a former #1 and a grand slam winner?

Seems clear to me. Roddick is all serve. Karlovic is all serve. I never said anything about their accomplishments. Are you implying Roddick is versatile?
