Its amazing what can happen in two weeks...

Its sunny in Scotland and Ivo becomes a force to be reckoned with on clay!!! (well one out of two aint bad! ) :)

Its been a while since the last post

Ivos played a few matches :bounce:

Barcelona

25/04/2006 beat Mirnyi, Max Belarus (#59)R1 63 64
26/04/2006 beat Davydenko, Nikolay Russia (#6) R2 67(7) 75 64 :eek:
27/04/2006 beat Korolev, Evgeny Russia (#159) 67(4) 76(4) 76(5)
28/04/2006 lost to Wawrinka, Stanislas Switzerland (#67)64 36 46

BMW OPEN by FWU AG - Munich

02/05/2006 beat Haas, Tommy Germany (#25) 63 76(3) :eek:

and all this on clay!!!! :eek: Which means Ivo is 4-2 on clay!! (His best performance in years!!! ) :) This compares with 15-11 on hardcourts so far!

ALSO Ivo is up in the rankings to #53 - he's now only 2 places behind his highest ever. :bounce:

Today Ivo played Mr T Haas. Fourth seed Tommy Haas then suffered a 6-3 7-6 (7-3) defeat to Croatia's Ivo Karlovic.

"It was very frustrating," said Haas, who saw Karlovic fire 22 aces. "He was very strong and if he keeps up like he did, all I can say is 'good luck'." (source bbc website - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4965658.stm) - an early prediction there by Haas for Rolland Garros perhaps! :) bring on Nadal!! :)

Next Ivo plays Bjorn Phau in R2. The pair have played only once before in 2001 at The Bronx, Challenger on Hard Court in the Round of 16; Phau won 76 75. Here's hoping for better luck for Ivo this time!!!

A couple of good results here could see Ivo move into the top 50!!! :)
