It was 7-6(6), Ivan had to save a set point on his own serve at 5-6. ;)

Judging by the Roddick scoreline (not seen the match) today I'm afraid I have to agree with you in that he will probably at least reach the final

35 first serves in and 24 of them were aces. 69% of first serves were aces. That's phenomenal.

Nope. Just 21 of them. 3 aces were on second serve :)

Seeing that Ivan won 35/35 1st serve points got me wondering who has the record for most 1st serves in without losing a point on it in a match.

You mean he served 100% but still managed to get into a TB with Sabau?

:haha: That's really sad.

Ivan is so boring, outside of serve he is not better then Jankie Tipsarevic.

Impressive serving from Ivan but then again I never hear of Razvan Sabau

Ivan is going to be difficult to beat during this grass season. I think he has so much confidence right now due to his stellar start to the year and then with the SF run on clay.

So how come Ivan is number 4 ranked player? Only with serve?! :confused: If that would be true, then Karlovic would be even better ranked! And Ivan usually has much lower 1. serve percentage!

He is not, and will be never Top class player. Only Top class players currently on tour are Federer, Nadal and to some degree Nalbandian. Ivan is good, but he is No.4 just because competition sucks at the moment. Btw, Ancic will surpass him in the rankings by the end of the year...write it down. Mario has more versatile, attacking game and mental tougher.

Now, you see. It`s now that i don`t like Croats, but Ljubicic is so damn boring on court that i cannot like him.
