Ivo lost to Melzer 6-7 (4) 6-7 (2)
Held only once in the second set tiebreak
Too bad, there goes a chance to be seeded at USO

Darn 7-6, 7-6 loss to Melzer. This will be a boring week now. Let's hope Ivo plays well in New Haven and gets some momentum for the US Open. The New Haven field should be much easier than the recent tournaments he's played. Ivo is serving his best it seems but his tie breaker success that was so good the 1st half of the year seems to be disappearing lately. Of course the recent losses have all been to really good players.

Still a chance for seed at US Open, but we need Stepanek to lose early and Almagro has to lose 1st round to Mayer, which isn't likely.

It's not hopeless. Almagro is defending 35 points from last year, so if he loses in 1st round he only gets 5 points and will fall below Ivo. Stepanek would have to get past 3rd round (probably Roddick) to get enough points to pass Ivo. I don't think anyone else is too likely to pass Ivo unless a real surprise has an incredible tournament.

I wasn't looking at the rankings, I just thought he wouldn't have a chance to move up in rankings if he loses the first round, Melzer is below him and he just defeated him...
What about him?

You are right, I forgot about Melzer, this win does puts Melzer past Ivo since he didn't play this tournament last year either. Yes, odds look long for Ivo to get seeding now, it would take a few injury withdrawls. Bummer. Amazing Melzer is now 9-0 in sets versus Ivo. I think that's the worst Ivo has done against anyone.

Almagro won so Ivo will be no better than #34 after this week.

Very disappointing Ivo.
He just isnt stong enough when he hits a second serve.And he hits it a lot in TB's.

Oh well...Good luck in next tournaments..

In GM there is a thread Updated rankings, and Judio updated rankings on today, and Ivo is #32 currently. Verdasco is #33, and Melzer #34, if they both lose second round, which is likely, they would stay below Ivo, so only Stepanek would be dangerous.

Default Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

I hope that thread is correct but I don't see how. The most recent (8/13/07) ATP rankings list Melzer with 855 points and Ivo with 882. Since then Melzer gets at least 35 points (by making it to 2nd round of Cincy) while Ivo only gets 5 points for losing 1st round. That puts Melzer at 890 and Ivo at 887 right now. Neither played Cincy, so neither was defending any points from last year. So it looks bad for Ivo. Hopefully the thread you read is correct and I'm making some kind of mistake. If Melzer plays Haas next round I'm 95% sure Haas will beat him. If it's Ancic it's too hard to guess what form he's in.

Wow, Ancic beat Haas. If Ancic can keep that form up and beat Melzer and Hewitt then he will pass Ivo too. A little hard to imagine Ancic doing that, but I never would have picked him to beat Haas, so who knows.

Ivo is still #32, but Stepanek as very dangerous. We need to hope that Ferrer will beat him, and that Ancic beats Melzer.

Ancic vs. Melzer won't really matter for Ivo, the 40 ranking points gained by the winner from moving from 2nd to 3rd round (35 vs. 75 points) will push either one past Ivo . I'm pretty sure I'm finally right about this one because I'm adding the 40 points to the projected numbers posted in the thread you told me about. If Ferrer holds on and beats Stepanek Ivo will probably end up #33. There's still a good chance Ivo will get a seed; I can't imagine there won't be a single injured player who skips the US Open. It's not exactly the most pleasant environment to come play in (heat, airplanes, crowd, fast courts). I bet some clay courter will come up with an injury and skip it.

Yeah, Stepanek lost so it's cool now.
So he's #33 and we hope somebody pulls out
