Thanks, herios! Not happy that Anderson lost. But it's good to see that Karlovic is back.
I hate to admit it...But now I have absolutely zero interest in the final.

I like both Falla and Karlovic, but it would be satisfying to see Karlovic go all the way in Bogota after recovering from a long illness.

Didn't watch this but very happy for Karlovic. That win will mean a lot to him after what he's been through.

It's really impossible not to feel great from Ivo. A brave and committed comeback. He's 34, btw.

Oh Yeah for Dr Ivo ClapClap
I think the 30+ guys are more committed than the youngsters

I know El Dude is trying to explain it to us, with stats, but this does seem to be the 'summer of 30-something players.' Not sure what it means, but it is interesting.

Congrats to Dr. Ivo on winning his first title in 5 years and getting to his first final in 3 years. He did it on a remarkable recovery from meningitis and did not drop serve the entire tournament. Give it up for this 34 yr old champion. ClapClap

God, that trophy looks spooky and rather dangerous. You could hurt yourself with it, depending how you hold it. Better not touch it at allSad

No, the Madrid trophy looks dangerous. This one seems to barely exist at all. I kind of like that!
