You'll be happy to know that no garden chairs were harmed in the making of this match...

Ranking will now plummet since he's defending the QF. But didnt play 2nd half of last year so he'll be ok.

Wasn't it 4th round against Rafa last year? Either way the big man is going down...

At least Voo will be satisfied with match stats

nice effort from dodig

01-17-2011, 12:20 PM
Never a dull moment when Ivo is playing a best-of-5 match. At least it's good for his ace count.

01-17-2011, 12:41 PM
Never saw this coming since Ivo was good in his first few matches. Great win for Dodig, who's become quite the upset guy in 5th in first round of AO. Last year, it was Ferrero.

Ivo on twitter:

Ish.. It's hard to win a match if I miss all the volleys I can possibly miss. Guess I'm not ready 100% yet.

01-17-2011, 01:14 PM
Not that surprised really. Ivo isn't 100% back yet especially in the returngames, only one break in 5 sets against Dodig is bad even for the good Dr. Also loosing 3 service games is 1 or 2 many.

good for tennis

This result is good for the tennis on the same way like you for MTF

ivo's voleys were poor in doha. he isn't 100 % back. beside that, he always loose in first rounds on GS

01-17-2011, 02:09 PM

Well done to Dodig.

Strange that Ivo plays so few breakers in melbourne.

On his first appearance he beat Fish in 3 breakers then lost to Martin in 3 breakers but since then only 7 in 53 sets.

01-17-2011, 02:44 PM
The usual 5-set avoidable and frustrating 1st round GS loss

01-17-2011, 02:51 PM
Dodig needed this one more anyway

01-17-2011, 03:14 PM
Oh dear Ivo :o
