No idea, how Kiefer managed to save those 2 bps in the first set, but he had no chances to convert any of his own bps (3). Got a bit lucky in the first set thanks to Karlovic double faulting in the TB.

Can't say I'm too sorry - I don't want to see Karlovic with any shot of the TMC.

Maybe next year if he can do something at slams other than lose in the first 2 rounds, that might be more appropriate.

Ivo was too passive when he had chances in the first set. I don't think he chipped and charged once in the set and he had good chances to on the break points. He was banking on Kiefer making an unforced error which wasn't the wisest strategy I've ever seen. The again he seemed to get burned every time he tried it later on in the match.

Surprising that Ivo lost these tie-breaks with such an experience ;) A question to those who seen the match : does Kiwi return to his good form or not?

Ivo must have remembered that this guy owns the only bagel over him on ATP level. :devil:

I don't think anyone's going to repeat the feat, though. Breaking him once is a feat already, let alone 3 times in a set :eek:
