  • Karlovic outlasts Kubot to move into second round

    3/23/12 2:00 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Ivo Karlovic blasted 27 aces in his first round win over Poland’s Lukasz Kubot, his first win ever over the Pole.

    Croatia’s Ivo Karlovic was one game away from losing this first round encounter. The men split the first two sets, with Karlovic securing an unusual break of serve to take the lead 6-3.

    Kubot held on in the second set, though he faced down a trio of break points. Karlovic was unable to convert and the set was settled with a tiebreaker. Kubot was able to just edge the Croat in the tiebreaker to tie it up at a set a piece.

    The Pole put together an outstanding third set until the tenth game. Kubot got his first break of the match and served at 5-4 for the match. He couldn’t seem to get a first serve in, and Karlovic clawed his way to the break. The Croat finally sealed the win in just over 3 hours.
