Karlovic wins by retirement

Strange result. Ivo just beat the very well-known player Veic. I was following the live score, Ivo was down a break serving to stay in the set at 5-3, he hit an ace and the guy retired?! Anyone know what happened? Did he hit him in the eye with the serve or something? Or did he twist an ankle dodging it?

Or did some Russian guy in the stands make a slashing sign across his throat to signal for Veic to quit?

Karlovic is horrible and it's a crime he won this match.

At 3-1 Veic turned his ankle and after medical treatment he looked OK but after few games Veic retired . Strange

Thanks for the info.

That is very weird though, he held easily two more times after the injury, then didn't even try to serve out the set. Well, better to be lucky than good sometimes. I'll take the win. Ivo really sucks every year in Zagreb, strange because he's started the year on fire. I'm not confident that he'll even get by next round to meet Cilic in the quarters.

Ivo was abysmal, veic was playing like Nadal compared to this antitalent and wannabe tennis player. No fix, veic injured his ankle. Karlović shits his pants everytime he plays infront of his crowd, that bh slice was landing on the moon....


He should lose to Sidorenko....
