Great Australian all the way around for Ivo. He's playing fantastic right now, definitely the best of his career. He's never looked so comfortable off the ground. If he keeps current form he should quickly rise back near top 20.

If Ivo were to get a top doubles partner he could easily be one of the top 8 doubles teams and qualify for year end masters. He serves very well, provides great support for his partner at the net, and does an effective job attacking 2nd serves. Even with Vemic he could stand a chance. I just wish Vemic had a stronger serve.

Are you kidding? Vemic's serve is one of the best, it is as fast if not faster than Karlovic's.

Really??? All I've seen him play was the quarters and semis of the Australian, but he really struggled to hold there, and it wasn't because he wasn't getting support from his partner at the net. When he missed the 1st serve his second was just getting eaten up, and really the 1st didn't look that great. It didn't stand out so much in the quarters since the opponents weren't great servers, but in the semis Vemic's serve looked like a juniors serve compared to the other 3 guys on court. Speed and % in on first serve were not good at all. If he really is a good server maybe he was injured?

Haven't seen any of this year doubles matches, so i can't tell if he was injured or troubled when serving but when i saw him during his great run at the 08' French, he was serving bombs in first serves (229 kph i recall at least) and his second serve was difficult to attaq,but of course he was prone to double faults.

Well, hopefully with such a great Australian Open they will move up in the rankings enough to qualify for a lot of tournaments this year and we'll be able to see how good they are. I know they tried to play quite a few tournaments last year but didn't get in because combined their ranking wasn't high enough.

I hope firstly that he keeps this level in singles up. First up Zagreb. Draws Cilic in his quarter, but don't know if he is fully fit.

Ivo always seems to do terrible in Zagreb. That tournament has been worse a jinx for him than Grand Slams. If he does make it through to the quarters I do think he's got a pretty good shot against Cilic. He's always done pretty well against other Croatians. Obviously Cilic is really coming into his own right now, but Ivo is playing the best of his career too.

Ivo's in the final. His game is absolutely on fire. Dominated Fish.
