Good tiebreaks as always from mental giant Karlovic.

Grow some balls and bomb your 2nd serves !!

One bad volley by Karlovic in each of the TBs was the only difference in the match..

I tried to watch too, but when I woke up I realized that I missed Haas-Zverev. :mad: Definitely not going to try to watch if they play in Wimbledon again.

Karlo is concentrating on Wimby never in doubt :D
Highlights of the match: Andy hits a lob over Ivo, Karlo makes one BH passing shot, makes 2 silly mistakes to lose both TB

I switched over to The History Channel. So glad Andy wrapped it up in two. I couldn't bear another set.

:sad: it comes to something when the match is decided by roddick being slightly MORE skilled at getting returns in than his opponent lol

strategic tank by dr ivo so he could win wimbledon

They should change tennis' rules when Ivo and ARod play against each other: No Games just straight to the Tiebreaks ! This should be less painfull for us as and for them !

Yup, was dreadful, almost as bad as tennis in the 90s.

Karlovic is a conundrum. He has the best serve in the game :clap2:. He also has the worst return of serve in the game :o.

weird scoreline.

Two huge serving clowns with nothing else.

Predictable scoreline.

Glad I didn't watch this match. Can't believe Karlovic is in the top 50 without being able to return a serve :o

Yes, it's a bit boring and dull...but I'm loving these serving fests with Roddick.
Counting aces, points on return, wondering will there ever be a break point; total domination of serve is kind of fun. :)
Heavy serves crushing the back wall and banging that poor scoreboard which makes such a great noise when hit by a 200km/h serve. :rocker2: :lol:

Two huge serving clowns with nothing else.


Typical clueless comment.
Roddick had all the shots in the book (except volleys maybe), while Karlo is most of the time really serve only. But even he made some nice volleys and forehands.

It was still 10x more exciting than any match in Nadal's career.

longest rally was 2 shots. The future of tennis.

predictable Karlo = 1 error in each TB and match over

Ivo hit a nice drop volley at 4-5 30-40 in the 2nd set to save match point.

Not much else to say of the match, though.

This was exciting compared to Federer's ace fest which resulted in his humiliation by Karlovic.
No umpire robbed Federer last year.
2 years ago, the magical Federer endurance against mononucleosis didn't happen, but he couldn't prevent Karlovic from breaking his serve.

The linesman robbed Roddick 6 times in the Madrid match vs. Ivo. Other times, Roddick broke Ivo's serves 4 times.

Genius Karlovic should've won every tiebreak 7-6 (7-2), even against Federer. The Federbear toy huggers would be proud.

After the Davis Cup bullshit trophy presentation, everyone congratulated each other for a great job Roddick did. What stood out was his mother's refusal to show a smile while her son stared at her with an "I'm sorry I disappointed you so much. I won Davis Cup just like my heroes Agassi, Sampras, Chang, and Courier" face expression.

you are so generous, even heya critiises roddick all the time, you could still admire her sense of humour :p, i think her words are harsh, but if you don't take it too seriously, it always make you :haha::rolls::bigclap:

One word: GTMOAT

Greatest tennis match of all time, both players were playing so great they wouldnt let the other player play tennis.

yes, some of them are lack of humour, they only want to hear good words on Roger, cannot accept even the slightest of critics, even their idol has more humour than them :ignore:
