Good win for Florian. I'm always happy to see him win. The purple clay was probably too slow for Dr. Ivo. Too bad he didn't make good use of the wildcard.

How this mug took Nadal to third set TB, I'll never know. Good win for Mayer and good for the game.

dr ivo can be a tough customer at times.

today was just not his day.

With Dr. Ivo you never know, one day he can be two points away from beating Nadal, the other will lose 6-7 6-7 to a guy whom Nadal would devastate the same day 6-2 6-0.

Mjau!

Maybe Ivo wasn't motivated becasue he felt mistreated by the organizers???

Is this Mayer the german guy with an pretty decent game or that argentinian I have never seen play?

Good one Flo! Can ga pretty far now. These courts suit his game I guess.

Why would he? He got a WC.

Karlovic was too focused on his clay season.

Mayer is a tricky player. Difficult match for Dr. Ivo.

Karlovic, oh boy Karlovic. How did it go so wrong? Mayer isnt even a good server and you couldnt return anything. Karlovic is strange- One day he can beat Simug 6-3 6-3 and the other day he loses to a much worse player, for example Russell or Mayer. Maybe the blue clay is a factor after all?

Beating Simon is not really difficult. We are not talking about a great player here.

It's combination of everything . Mayer's serve isn't bad and he is extremely tricky player to play , specially for ivo . Awful match up . And neither this surface doesn't help . So it was somehow expected

Good victory for Flo particularly considering Ivo`s last performance in IW.

Flo is probably the most underrated player in high level tennis. Wasn't he top 100 as a teen? This loss was very expected from a match-up, surface and overall ability standpoint.

Was expecting this to happen. Tough luck to draw unpredictable Mayer.

yup tough matchup for Ivo

Flo opened the toolbox and probably played smart game with going to the net alot and using the slices

Life is really ironic - or should that be iVonic? :D He plays so well he gets a WC to the Miami MD, and then - first round and poof! My v-cash went poof too :haha:

From Ivo's twitter: I thought I played unusually bad last night. But then again,I can't remember ever winning a match here. So I guess it was usual bad.

Ivo is too busy enjoying Miami to be bothered with the tennis.

Maybe Ivo's working on a new rap video and couldn't train properly.

Glad he was so disappointed and outraged he didnt get a wildcard - the organizers were just probably shielding him from an inevitable post Indian Wells letdown
