Expectedly tight match here. One surprise is that there weren't any tiebreaks. Good win for Ancic. :)

Karlovic continues his winless 5 set record. What's he 0-10 now? :o:rolleyes::eek::sad::worship: Also, wasn't he up 40-0 at 4-4 in the fourth?

Ivo was robbed in the 5th

Ancic is just a joke of a player.

Mario :bounce: Great fighting as always. I want those volley three times a day to make up for months of deprivation :D Keep going.
Ivo played easily the best return game I've ever seen him play to break and take the 3rd 6:4 :worship:

I already told on another thread, if match goes to 5 sets, Mario will win for sure.
Good luck against Simon

I picked Karate Kid to win this one. One might say that it's an expected result and one might be right. ;)

Oh no, two of my faves playing against each other! :( I will root for Gilles as he is likely to go further in the tournament, Mario is just too fragile imo.

Way to go Ancic gettin' yourself tired like that.

You better kill that mug Simon in the next round.

i guess we will find out whether ancic has rid himself of that bug enough to see him compete with consistency week in week out... tho, a rally with karlovic wouldnt go searching your legs to hard to be honest...

Whoa, it was a tough one for Ancic.

Anyway, good luck in the next round and please dispatch this Gilles Simon out of the AO. :D

5 sets and no tiebreaks. Is that typical of Karlovic in the slams?

bravo to mario for win,but that was too bad tennis from him.

Ivo was unlucky in the fifth. he got a horrific call on break point to lose his serve after a stunning bh cc pass was incorrectly called out. he looked out on his feet at that stage anyway so I don't think it made a difference to the outcome.

should've been easier for ancic overall but he choked big time when serving for the first set at 5-4.
