I didn't see it coming after losing that first set but I'm glad he pulled it off.

Tojo played a very solid match judging by the stats.

Wish him luck at the US open.:)

Hopefully he has gained some confidence for next weeks major

Good tennis out of Ivo.

It will be interesting if he plays Ferrer next round. Ferrer leads the ATP tour in service return statistics, he's #1 on tour in break points converted, #1 on tour in % winning 2nd serve return points, and 2nd on tour in % winning 1st serve return points. Ferrer had beaten Isner the past two weeks and broke his serve 4 times yesterday. This matchup may give some idea of how Karlovic's serve compares to Isner's.

Karlovic's service stats since Roland Garros 2007:
Matches won/lost: 15/6
Service games lost: 11
Break Points faced: 40
Total service games: 286
% Service games won: 96,2 %

Opponents who finished tha match without having a single break point on Ivo's serve:
safin,del potro,tursunov,korolev,spadea,roddick,federer,melz er,russell


Isner's service stats:
Service games lost: 11
Break Points faced: 31
Total service games: 131
% Service games won: 91,6 %

Isner has been broken the same even though he played many matches less and played serveice games twice as less.

I doubt there is anybody on this planet in Ivo's category right now altough Ferrer will be a tough opponent.

Thanks, interesting stats, I hope you're right that Ivo's is the best. I'm just curious. If that is correct that Isner has lost 11 service games then almost half (5) were in his two matches to Ferrer. Ivo has never played Ferrer. So if Ferrer pulls through and beats Andreev it will be interesting to see how Ferrer's results returning Ivo's serve compare to his results returning Isner's. Go IVO :)

You for one have no basis for complaint about Karlovic's game.
