Absolutely awful performance by Ivo. :o
Only good thing is that he hit 20 aces, nothing else. Melzer's serve is poor and he still won 82% of his 1st serve points and 77% of points on his 2nd serve! :lol:
Honestly, this was just sad to watch.

Ivo STILL lacking a ground-game. Was always interesting to see people matchup against him but at 34 I'd say he's past even his twilight lol

Karlovic getting broken by a nobody says its time to retire
love him, who doesn't, Ivo's got a great story as far as self teaching himself tennis BUT his results have been pretty awful for a while now

This was the saddest match I've seen in a while. I realy hope Ivo goes to Umag and just bows out and retires. He really just looked like he didn't care and was serving and jogging to the net.

He's had a great career for his limited abilities and just needs to hang it up.

Karlovic needs to retire ASAP.

It's to see a player of the caliber of Ivo having ATP points, let alone playing ATP matches. I do know serve is a part of the game, but a club player is better than him in anything else...

Despite the loss, it was a positive performance from Karlovic. Hopefully he can build on this promising result and start winning slams again soon.

Congrats on being totally clueless about tennis.

Melzer plays exactly like his brother (ATP is wrong, he's a lefty)
