:eek:
He defeated Vanek, Chiudinelli 6-3 6-2 and Zabaleta 6-4 6-1 last year, but I don't remember him beating anybody by this score, I'm pretty sure it hasn't happened yet on the ATP tour :woohoo:
He wasn't serving at his best, but he was returning pretty well and Rochus was far from playing his best. Nice score for Ivo, revenged his loss against C.Rochus in Doha :devil:
Good luck against Berdych, if it's Ljubicic then I want an interesting match :)

The best thing about this match was the handshake... :lol:

Nah, pretty okay from Ivo, Rochus = MIA.
Thanks for the cash btw Dr. Ivo! :hatoff:

Perfect match by Karlovic :) He easily outplayed Rochus from the baseline. Ivo played even backhand-overhead dropshot what is unusual. On the other hand Rochus completely without commitment.
Ivo like in his previous match against Baghdatis, didn't serve an ace "on the advantage side / down the T".

How is that possible? Everyone says all Ivo can do is serve. :)

That was just sad.

Rochus is a cute little munchkin. The crowd giggling at the post match handshake was funny.

I like Ivo, but Rochus' level today was beyond pathetic.

He belongs to the challenger level right now.

And small men trouble Ivo: just ask Santoro! :p

Right,by the way he didn't have to serve here,he was serving on Rochus backhand 80% of the time.Rochus wasn't reacting at all on this side,that's maybe why Rochus is easy to ace.

Not exactly a match for the history books, that.

Rochus was touching his right shoulder throughout the match, moving his right arm around that shoulder joint + he never looked to be really into the match.

Ollie has a career-threatening shoulder injury, so his demise today isn't a surprise...even if the scoreline is more unflattering than perhaps expected.

Seems both Rochus brothers should retire, Christophe lost 6-0 6-2 to Smeets in qualifying. Maybe they can enter the paralympics together (dwarf category).
