Good result, Ivo. Straight-sets win in a best 3-of-5 match and no tiebreaks?!?

Does anyone know how many aces he hit?

Good to see a win in a slam for Ivo.

I was expecting Minar to lose since the first quali round already. This guy isn't the biggest talent out there.

Minar served for the first set at 5-4 and the match looked to be all over. Surprising to see Karlovic win a match at a slam. Maybe he can have a decent result here but I'd still expect Serra to take him out.

usopen.org just uploaded the match statistics. Karlovic had 28 aces (in just three sets!). He faced six BP's and was broken once. Conversely, he held 12 BP's and broke five times.

C'mon, Ivo, take Serra out!

can ivo stop rafa, thats what i wanna know....ivo is a circus freak and should be in a cage, his serve is just normal for anyone serving from that height, its basics physics...

This is even more suprising that seeing Blake win his first 5 set match against Santoro.

Awesome Ivo, I hope he can win at least one more match. :)

Yeah, that Chinese basketball player serves just like him.

Get a clue, fanboy.

Assume this was Jan Minar, as Ivo is on court now against Kiefer.

Easy win for Ivo. Always good to come through in three sets early in such a tournament!

Surprising to see Karlovic win a match at a slam.

Surprising? :lol: He played a mug who was lucky to qualify and never played a main draw match on the main tour before Dubai 2008...

He played a mug at Wimbledon who was playing only his second ever grand slam match and must have received a wild card or qualified and lost that one.
