Ivo had a set point at 6-5 Adv-40 in the second set and Llodra put his second serve into the tape, but it just dropped in. He went on to hold and got the break in the tiebreak with a stunning forehand. Bad luck for Ivo, but a good win for Llodra.

Llodra played much better and deserved the win. Nice touch at the net and some good BH passes especially in the 1st set. Good win!!!

Serve-and-volley king Llodra! :worship:

Karlovic wasn't agile enough (guess it's tough when you are that tall). Deserved win for the Frenchman.

Llodra returned Kalrovic serve only once in the 2nd set tie break! That's all you need against all-serve Ivo.

Llodra playing with this diversity of services and great touch at the net should be a seeded player in the last three Grand Slams this year. He has changed himself mentally this year, that's for sure. He was a tie-break choker throughout all these past years and now he looks very strong when a set comes to 5:5 or 6:6 :)

Shame for Ivo - should have won this tournament.

Llodra - :eek: - 2nd ATP final of the year!

The amount of luck Llodra had in this match is just unbelievable.
Karlovic won less points on Llodra;s service games than what Llodra managed on Karlovic's.
Llodra completely deserved the win. Superior volleying and intelligent placement of serves. Had 3 BP's on Ivo's serve. Ivo managed only one, late in the 2nd set.

It was great to see Mika producing such a confident display of serve-volleying. Well done to him. What a season he has had so far.

Tough luck for Ivo.

Llodra has been playing great this week and the score makes it seem like the match was close. So nice job anyway.

Always next week :)

Llodra is a dangerous opponent for any guy on a fast surface, his second serve is one of the best in men's tennis today. He moves great for a big guy and has beautiful touch, some of his half volleys remind me of Henman.
