Strong in set 1 and 3. Serve was kinda ass in set 2 but recovered nicely and returned pretty fucking well. 3 breaks today.

Well done, i thought he was done after the 2nd set but recovered nicely. Hit some great backhand slices.

Early nomination to Pablo Andujar for sportsmanship play of the year after conceding a point after a double bounce on game point, a game he eventually got broken. More than 90% of the tour would have just walked to the chair as if nothing had happened.

I thought Ivo’s baseline game was pretty good for his standards.

Serve has finally been fixed. His drop in ranking last 2 years was mainly due to his serve being trash often only hitting 5 aces in two sets.
His serve was pretty dildo in set 2 but was firing well in the other sets. 27 aces in 3 sets is pretty damn good overall.

Andujar has a very sleep inducing style of play but gotta give him credit on the sportsmanship and he seems like a nice guy

He could really crush a forehand on clay 10 years ago but he seems to have lost some power.

Well he was good there but today, he was absolutely wepaonless. His serve is complete tittymilk and he couldn’t even hit 1 ace against a player that can’t get balls 3 feet away from him.

Any Karlovic win without TBs should be considered absolutely dominant.

I can't stand Karlovic at all (neither his personality, nor his gamestyle and his other shenanigans), but respect him for sticking around above 40 and still competing.

Ten years ago I asked Karlovic on Twitter until when he thought he could play and he said 50. Dude wasn't trolling

Could not be happier for Dr. Ivo. Great guy off the court, always friendly and approachable. I enjoy Andujar, nice to watch:cool:. Ivo could get to the quarters in this event, not a bad second round draw. We shall see, keep our fingers crossed.
