For a long time, I was wishing he could break the pattern and win a GS match, and now he was two wins!

On to the third round :)

Ivo into 3rd round with 6-7, 6-4,6-3,6-1 win over Sela

Another great match for Ivo. He had at least 5 breaks of serve for the 2nd match in a row. He's really looking solid.

It's really annoying that the AO only seems to have match stats for the 1st 6 courts.

I'm worry what's with Ivo's tie-breaks. Has lost 5 in a row :(
Run of bad luck. What's nice is he doesn't seem to need them. There's a lot of luck in TBs, I'm sure the %s will swing around soon and even out.

His first GS 3rd round appearance for 4 years and he's in a nice section of the draw. Looking good for the doctor.

well he isn't a TB king anymore. :lol: lost what 5 in a row but hell yeah he is becoming a return king day by day. well dudi almost had safin in ao last year and he single handedly defeated chile in DC Tie. so certainly it was good win for dr Ivo. :yeah:

Also it was the first time he reached third round since 2004 wimbledon.(where he eventually lost to federer.)
Well i don't about where his ranking will be but he is indeed the true croatian #1. which is going to be terrific feat considering the fact what he has gone through.(mistreatment form croatian tennis association, stammering, etc.)
the slower certainly helping him to get more balls back.(like i noted his game from paris)

youzhny isn't really a tough player but his bh is very dangerous. his serve is weak and fh is ok. isn't really a good volleyer. well i din't expect karlo to go this far but goo doc.

I like Karlovic too. He's too nice to hate.
