Karlo had 2 set points at 5/4* 40-15* in the fourth :

once again he proves he hasn' t got it for the Slams:

ridiculous player, awful tennis :rolleyes: :worship:

Ivo :rolleyes:
Not even incredible or anything like that anymore. He is just completely useless in grand slams. He had 2 SPs at 5-4 in the 4th set, but of course couldn't break. Doesn't matter, he never wins in 5 anyway.

bad serving and he didn't take advantage of his chances on the return...had 0-30 when stadler served for it

BIGMARAT
06-23-2008, 04:58 PM
thats why i had a good laugh when someone is claiming he has a better serve than Roddick! hahahaha

Funny Ivo, very good player in tight situation but such a choker in Grand Slam events :p Another wasted opportunity to win first five-setter.

Berrer a big server :confused: I don't think so, look at his serve stats against Djokovic. This is more or less the same level of serving.

It's not only Ivo being bad at slams, it's other players being confident they can beat him over a 5 set match as they can get used to his serve.

Dr.Ivo :spit: :haha: :haha: :haha:

No comment, looks like Ljubo and Ivo are competing who is the bigger GS mug.

Ljubo had a semifinal at RG and a 1/4 at the AO; Karlo will never reach this GOAT results :cool::devil:

Just like I said last week when he beat Gael. If a man with no shoulder can take you to 2 tiebreak sets, forget doing well at Wimbledon. Bye Ivo!!!

Not surprising Karlovic would lose a winnable match, but I didn't expect it would be this one.

Do youself a favour Ivo and skip the Nottingham week from now on

Rumour
06-23-2008, 06:08 PM
Karlovic :bolt:

Stadler :spit:

Never heard of this German before but, like Bozoljac, he managed to rise to the occasion in beating a more favoured and experienced player that, nevertheless, rarely seems to get the job done in a big match.

Karlovic needs to skip Nottigham from now on.
Oh Well atleast he made it to Rd 3 at Australian open.

See ya at US Open ivo.

well, I am not dissapointed, I even didn`t watched this match on livescore or anywhere else as I am not interested in his matches. Many people here in Croatia doesn`t like him. I am one of them for sure :rolleyes: . And it is his own fault for that and his reputation here... :(

I once watched Stadler a year ago in Halle, he is a challenger level player from baseline but seems to be in a good form. He is also lefty which is tricky especially in the serve vs serve type of encounter.

This result is strange but not shoking.
