4 aces in the last game
Montanes had 3 bps at 2-2 in the first but ivo played three great points to save them (especially the second one)

I don't like the type of game that Ivo has...I was so hoping that Alberto could get the upset. :sad: :sad:

Same as all of Ivo's matches, Montanes had chances, should've won one of the BPs, then at 5all in the TB makes a UE, there goes the set, and he completely melted away in the 2nd :lol:

It was a long time ago, although im not sure entirely if it was to close out the set or the match, but ive seen him close to doing it a couple of times :tape:

Special K :angel::p

That's the nickname for Koubek, AKA Mr Fashionista. :p

One more time tomorrow, big guy! Houston's superior clay-court status will then be truly confirmed.

How dare you point that out? Karlovic is only serve, right? :p ;)

Well Koubek has had the nickname a long time, at least since 2003.... imagine if every player whose name began with a K lay claim to the title, there wouldn't be much special about it before long.

No he is the fourth best returner in the world after Federer, Nadal and Murray.:p
To be honest Karlo needs to play more claycourt tournaments.(like spainiards, argies). He is able to get more returns back on clay.

Nadal's not a good returner. Ivo is better. :D

Ivo is the best all arounder on the planet. If it wasnt for his injuries he would be challenging federer.
