Evil Karlovich said "I think the whole of England are desperate for him to win" mmmmmmm obviously he is not a Daily Mail reader then!?,

Yeah, we Scots don't really care.  Wink

Must admit, it was a bizarre amount of foot faults. However, I really doubt the officials were crooked. Will be interesting to see if he lodges a formal complaint or not.

But it is also entirely possible that he truly double faulted that many times. Ivo clearly came into today's match feeling all pumped up and with a very strong desire to pull an upset in front of the British crowd, so it's quite possible he was a bit agitated all along that initiated that fault of his. Think of all the things he had to say after the match. He's very disappointed because he didn't get his wish and blaming the official for his loss. He must have thought he had a very strong chance to win today's match, so the disappointment is just as big too judging by his comments.

If anyone is truly interested then they can dig this match up and see exactly where he foot faulted and see if that was going to have an strong affect on the overall outcome of the match. I mean this is not the first time Andy had won a match against him, surely.

Happened at both ends didn't it.  I know of 1 that he served a fault as well as a foot fault.

Can't believe that Ivo was like this - comes across as such a gentle giant - I'm sure that's what the comms were blahblah on about during the match.

I thought it was quite amusing when the BBC comms started waffling on about how they thought a hawkeye system should be brought in so's these foot fault calls could be verified.  I mean, just how often is it that players do this even once, never mind several times, in a match?

I found karlovic's game too sloppy, even though i watched the whole match i wonder how he won the second set....he keeps slicing the ball which ends up on the net....

Andy's seeding says he should reach the final.  Do you think he can do it?

HOLY CRAP CUTENESS ON BBC RIGHT NOW

Shots of Murray with a small child hugging him for about ... 10 minutes.
Andy grinning. Castle says "Is it Kim?" If it is, she's behaving very inappropriately in public.
