IW: Rafa Wins Thriller


Rafael Nadal defeats Ivo Karlovic 5-7, 6-1, 7-6(7) You can read As-It-Happened here. 
Against Ivo Karlovic you have to come to the match very focused & very patient, Ivo has one of the best serves out there, mostly because of his consistency. Not only does he serves bombs, his first serve & his second are phenomenal, you are only as good as your second serve, among other things in tennis.. Overall I think Rafa played very well, but his semi-final match to me will be tough!

Even though Juan Martin DelPotro is still not playing as well as he was, he is a very dangerous player for Rafa, he takes time away from Rafa on both sides of the court. I know it will a crazy that I know Rafa is looking forward to after the last 3 times they played Rafa was injured & not at his best..Last time Rafa defeated Del Potro was at Indian Wells 2009 So I know Rafa will be looking for some revenge.
