Dr.Ivo def. Ferrer 7/6,6/3 - legendary performance

I am not near a fan, but this was the best I have ever seen him play, especially outdoors(maybe not counting grass or indoors), not even serving that well, gave no rythm to ferrer and returning and hitting winners, just plain sick, a couple of one-handed bh winners in Warinka/Ljubo style, down the line, cross court, just amazing, slicing like Federer................

Simply out of this world :worship::worship:

what happened?!:confused:

I thought Karlovic had no chance, he proved me wrong

# 239 defeats # 6
wow

Karlovic had many DFs and not so many aces, and he managed to win. Impressive & high 1st serv. pts won

Great win. It wasnt the usual all serve mug performance- he controlled 80% of the rallies on both serves, some blistering backhands down the line and several great volleys. Performed better than Ferrer in every aspect.

biggest win of his career probably

at 32, against an in-form player (dunno about his injury in DC but he didnt seem affected), played an incredible TB and made a screaming BH DTL
glad he can still pull out such wins

David might not be 100% recovered from his shoulder injury that kept him out of DC.

Well done Ivo :D I really didn't expect this after watching him play against Petzschner last Sunday, and knowing that Ferrer loves this tournament and overall is a bad match-up for Ivo.
You're da beast Ivo :rocker2: Good luck next round :armed:
Needs the points now more than ever.

Great win for Karlovic . Ferrer had one of those days when he looked useless , he would lose to anybody . Hope that Ivo can raise his game and confidence on this win . Karlovic's slice looked really good . Like always at IW slice stays low and spin bounces highly

If you had seen this match, you would not have said that.

Karlovic probably played the most aesthetically pleasing tennis of his life. Good for him, he seems like a nice and funny guy based on his tweets.

LOL, no way it is the biggest win of his career, a good win considering his bad streak but it was more about Ferrer being pathetic than anything else.

yes Karlovic can play I had already seen him do such things :yeah:

now I hope Miami officials are finally going to give him a qualifying wild-card ;)

Ferrer has ups-and-downs but I've never seen him "useless losing to anybody".

of course, i was exaggerating a bit
but considering the circumstances and the level he showed it was a huge win

Only watched 2 games and the TB in first set but Ivo played the best groundies I ever saw from him. Good win for him.

Yes, it's a good win considering the circumstances and the matchup, hopefully he takes out the pusher in the next round.

Ferrer played a bad match. Was very up and down, didn't show the competitiveness he usually does, serves very poorly, and struggled with his range. With that said Ivo played a pretty good match, used the slice effectively and was decent at the net. He hit some great shots from the back of the court. But let's not get carried away and act as if he was at his absolute best.

Congrats to the Doctor on the confidence boosting victory.

Excellent from Karlo.

Ferrer couldn't touch his first serve.

With this kind of tennis, and the section of the draw he is in, I would not be shocked if he can make a run to the QFs.

Nice for Ivo, because even though I don't like his game very much, he's had some bad luck and deserves a break, especially in light of this Miami business. :)
Sad for Ferrer because I like him :sad:
Rafa's getting a bye to the semis :rolleyes:

He lost first round here last year, he didn't gain or lose anything.

what are the missing 3 letters in this equation...?

Of course he had to take out Ferrer as Ferrer was in cheater's corner. Now he's a for sure lock to the finals. :rolleyes:

as if it has been only Pics who could have prevented that. hatred has clouded your sight.

Probably the best match I've even seen Karlovic play groundstroke wise. :)

DrJules
03-12-2011, 11:27 PM
He played better than most today with the exception of Del Potro and possibly Ljubicic albiet not difficult today.

Verdasco, Berankis, Baghdatis, Murray, Young all impressed less.

I like Ivo, so good for him. And he did actually play quite well, came to net nicely etc. But David played sh#*.

Not worse than Murray's performance today in any case. Ferrer didn't do that bad, just that Karlovic is much better today in terms of getting the ball in.

Now what's Miami going to do? Still deny him a Wild Card?

Nice game from Ivo, bad game from Ferrer... The croatian did a good job on serving, on return and under the net. Ferrer made too many errors on forehand, searching too much the lines, while he had half court available. In the first set Ferrer's 1st serve percent was terrible !

Please don't anything that ossie says seriously, in fact just disregard it totally.

The big man was inspired.
