Karlovic has won tournaments on all surfaces (indoor/outdoor hard, grass and clay).

those 4 FH errors to go a break down in third were priceless :drool: , the guy who permanently ruined this beautiful game needs more matches like this

Gritty hold in final game. Ivo couldn't buy a first serve and couldn't win a second. Then ended up saving a break point on a second. To break the game before all 4 points Ivo won were off Monaco 1st serves and prior to that point Ivo was only winning 20% of Monaco 1st serves.

Happy for Ivo, Monaco is mug of highest calibre, i mean Ivo had 88% 1st serves won on his 1st serve - his average is about 80% this was on slowest surface vs clay-courter, so that´s tell us how big mug was Monaco when Ivo hit 1st serve, on 2nd serves it was obvious Monaco dominated rallies, Monaco won far more points on return than Ivo and basically was the better player but couldn´t return big serves.... Ivo rising in ranking, good for him before grass season, hope he will do some damage and also shooting aces left-right, now with good ranking and fact he is comfortably leading aces so far this season i said good chance he will end up 1st, last 4 yers he wasn´t good enough - ranking wise and lost a lot of qualifications so didn ´t played enough matches on main tour, this season it looks better, also good ranking before Bogota -where he should do fine in that altitude, i have high hopes for Ivo with grass season and Bogota and HC NA summer coming

Monaco failed to defend 2/3 of BPs he faced against Karlovic on Juan's favorite surface? Unbelievable.
