Default Moscow SF: Bellucci def. Karlovic 6-7(5) 6-4 6-4

First hardcourt final for Bellucci.

Ivo was all serve for most of the match and fatigued by the end. Bellucci served well overall and did enough damage on second serve returns to come through.

Karlovic, typically, got broken with awful UEs at 4-5 both sets

Awesome, Bellucci is back, should give Federer a match in Basel if he's not too tired.

Good job, winning 27% of Ivos first serve is impressive. 17 aces to Ivo, 13 to Bellucci.

Oh dear God Ivo. Loosing match like this to Bellucci . Some volleys were beyond pathetic, any club player would have played it better

Great stuff from Bellucci, specially taking into account that this is on indoor HC's

Default Re: Moscow SF: Bellucci def. Karlovic 6-7(5) 6-4 6-4

For a Karlovic match, this was actually mildly entertaining.
I actually didn't think Bellucci was that impressive...seemed more a matter of some stupid unforced errors by Ivo at the tail end of last two sets, especially double faulting at 30-30 to give match point.
Even with his atrocious movement, Ivo had several chances in Bellucci's service games - not a good look. Funniest part was at 5-5 first set TB, Bellucci serves and continues tactic of hitting everything to awful Ivo slice backhand, then suddenly gets passed by stealth out of nowhere Ivo *topspin backhand* winner
Russian commentators said that was the first such bh Ivo hit the whole match and Bellucci looked pissed to lose the set that way. Moscow crowd loudly chanting "Ivo! Ivo!" must have annoyed him too. I think Seppi will win tomorrow.

Ivo served fairly well, but his volleys were garbage and his ground game was little better. Horrendous UE's at 4 - 5 in the last two sets to give the match away.

This has to go down as a serious missed opportunity as it was a genuine chance to win his first title since 2008.

Bellucci with his serve can get some good results even on indoor courts unlike a lot of "classical" claycourters. Moreover, he seems to like playing against big servers, I'm not surprised by his run but now I expect him to lose against Seppi tomorrow who is a way too much consistant player for him (I hope to be wrong though!).

Anyway congrats Thomaz
