Excellent match from Ivo, yes he was serving out of the tree. More importantly he was good from the ground by his standards and won without needing any tiebreaks.

Good to see the slice and net game working and carrying on his good start to the year.

DC R1 (Japan vs Croatia): Dr. Ivo outclasses Nishikori 6:4 6:4 6:3

Free tennis lessons from Ivo, outplayed Kei in every department.

Hasnt faced a single BP, while being dangerous in almost every return game.

4 breaks in the end for a quick and comfortable victory.

DC 1R (Japan vs Croatia) -- Rubber 2: Karlovic def. Nishikori 6-4, 6-4, 6-3

What the hell :eek:. Nishikori was broken once in each set in the first two sets, then got broken twice including dropping his service game in the 3rd set to lose.

Dr. Ivo, good performance :yeah:.

The tie is evened at 1-1.

All-serve player wins again. He was lucky he broke 4 times. Serve-bot. Bad for tennis.

:eek: :sad:
The worst performance by Kei for ages. He jsut couldn't get into his rhythm in the face of Dr Ivo's big big serve. He's usually pretty good at dealing with big servers but looks like it wasn't his day today, and Karlovic remained calm and player really well.

Great win for Ivo, Croatia will advance to next round thanks to Ivo. BTW playing against Ivo on Decoturf-indoor is i think deadly combination, why dind´t Japanese choose some very slow HC instead of this fast.

It doesn't matter what surface they play Karlovic on, he can win or lose on anything, it's not like his level varies that much between the surfaces.

THis is right, but still fast HC and indoor conditions against Ivo are difficult to win for anyone, but probably they were counting that Kei will make 2 points for sure, and he is best at faster HC.

This makes Federer's win look even better :worship:

Ajde
Actually it makes Federer's win look normal because of the fact that he got 4-setted badly by Rafa in the semifinals. Thus the effect is canceled out. Overall, it makes Tsonga's loss look even more worse.

Ajde.
