Karlovic on grass is going to be tough for Sock. I'd put my money on Karlovic, but I'm rooting for Sock. I think Karlovic will win 7-6, 7-6, or 7-6, 6-7, 7-6, or something like that. But I'd love to see Sock pull the upset and move into the top 30.

I know this is going out on the limb, but I'm predicting we're going to see at least 1 break of serve in the match today. I think Ivo's going to take it in 3, but Sock is definitely dangerous and on his way up in the rankings, soon to be the top American.

Why is Sock playing so soon after Wimbledon with a broken finger? I don't understand. He doesn't need the points, I don't think.

I suspect that finger wasn't really broken, he kept playing doubles the day after he said he broke it.

What an opportunity for these guys, with the winner getting to play Rajeev Ram for the title.

Idk, he tweeted a picture of it in a protective coat and reported it as fractured. I just assumed he wouldn't really have to hit 2-h backhands in Doubles like at all (he didn't v. Murray/Peers iirc). But I guess you could make the argument that he rarely does in Singles anyway. Just seems risky; so many of these guys try and forgo proper recovery.

Sock had many several chances to break Ivo during set 1 as Sock did a great job of returning Ivo's serve. Sock broke Ivo and then blew his service game game and they were even again. He lost the tie break by a wide margin and in set 2 Sock just seemed to lose interest and then the match was over.
