Now that was hilarious!

Federer wanted to finish it in straight so badly that he didn't even notice that he's just lost a set when he'd got broken. I wondef if he can defeat Nalbandian, but it would be reeeally difficult

As for Karlo, well, he didn't show anything we don't know about, but the percentage of 1st serves in and the amount of double fults were proper

Stats will appear here soon

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

You know the status of the court when Federer gets so many looks on the Karlovic serve.

An ok match by Fed. I thought he was too playful after winning the first set. Should've close it in 2.

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

Federer won 46% of Karlovics 1st serves in the 3rd set, he was really reading Karlovics serve like a book, Karlovic could even have been bagelled in that last set if Fed would have converted the bps.

If Roger is really lucky he can win a set against the GOAT.

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

Interesting match.

I thought Fed played pretty good at times. Returned excellent. I mean when was the last time Ivo won "only" 73% of the points behind first serve?!

I can easily see Ivo inside top ten next year.

To bad it's Fed vs Nalby already in the third round...

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

Federer has played Karlovic on slower surfaces than this and barely got a look at the serve, with the Ivo serve a slowed down court makes a pretty small difference. I know the excuses will be thrown around like confetti about how he got broken three times but Federer really stepped up the return game today.

Actually, if Federer didn't miss out so many 2nd serves, because of his weak BH floating return of 2nd serves, he would have broken him a couple times more. C'mon, it one game he won like 4 points off of Karlo's 1st serve bombs, and still didn't break - just because he didn't punish 2nd serves the way Nalbandian or Murray would have, for example.
