Rotterdam R2: Karlovic def. Berdych 6-4 6-4

:woohoo: He seems to be playing his best this week, lost only 7 points on serve today, hit 17 aces and had 11(!) break points. Great wins for Ivo, lost only 11 games in two matches in Rotterdam :)
He should beat Zverev.

Fantastic. Another 'top' player upset. :aparty: :aparty: :aparty:

Hey I know the quality of tap water in Rotterdam is pretty bad, but could someone at least have warned the players about it? :lol:

Congrats, Dr. Frankenstein. :worship: :hatoff:

ivo had so many break chances, even if berdych had a bad day, ivo has clearly improved his ground game

And won all 4 sets without a TB. That has to be a new record for Ivo.

Voo, has Ivo ever won 4 sets in a row without a TB?

I'm disappointed. Of course he had. In Madrid, Washington and even a grand slam, Roland Garros (6-4 7-5 7-5 against Blake, 6-3 6-3 against Bjorkman) last year, there were also some tournaments where he didn't win 4 sets in a row, but he did win 4 sets in a row without a TB. For example Nottingham

Del Potro, Juan Martin (ARG) 7-6(10) 7-5

Tursunov, Dmitry (RUS) 7-5 6-4

Clement, Arnaud (FRA) 3-6 6-4 6-4

So, he was winning setzs 7-5, 7-5, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. That's 5 :p

Not really a shock, but Berdych's stats are pretty awful. Dr. Ivo has a good shot at the final now, although Llodra will probably have something to say about that.

Awwww...I have a hard time getting in with the Ivo mocking. He seems so - well- nice and shy. There was a pretty good article about him in Tennis where they were talking about how it was kind of odd that such a gentle giant or whatever smaltzy term brought out such negative feelings in tennis audiences.

I am getting tired of the seeds dropping like flies where- but Ivo has steadily improved and he is ranked 24 so this isn't too bad.
