Clearly better player won . Doha is playing lightening fast . Don't remember when Kralovic in 18 service games had 8 aces, not even on clay . Vamos atp

well, Ivo is better on clay than Sergey, so maybe the surface was an advantage for him :)

One of Nadal's requests for participation was putting the extra slow surface and Ivo in his quoter so he could beat him without third set breaker

Second was normally Kolya and Tsonga out from his half . And if it is possible Fed - Kolya in the first round

And all that normally depended where Dodig would choose to play

Bizarre, but very good sign that he wins without a lot of aces.

this 6-2 sets happened because they were so impressed with Ivo's serve so they gave him to serve 6 times in second set while Stakhovsky was serving just two times

Not very serve friendly this event - lowest serve stats of any hard court event now.

Courts must be realllllly slow. Tsonga came up with few aces as well in his match. Nice that Ivo has well rounded game now so can win under any circumstances, although if he makes it to 3rd round this will be a really bad surface to face Nadal on.

:lol::lol::lol:

Yes, I bet Rafa is thinking only about Dodig at the moment :lol:

Another loss of this sport.
