Karlović Can’t Make it Number 6 as he Loses ATP Final in Newport

ivo-karlovicBig serving Croat Ivo Karlović has failed to win his 6th ATP World Tour Title on Sunday after going down in a thriller against Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport…

The 6’11” right-hander, who was playing in his 11th ATP World Tour final, levelled the game at one set all when he took a second set tie-breaker. Hewitt however, had too much for Karlović, taking the last set and the match 6-3, 6-7(4), 7-6(3) in two hours and 30 minutes.

“Hewitt returned really well. He rarely missed. I didn’t have my normal serve because it was windy. I was committing a lot of double faults and missing volleys – both of which I don’t normally do. That was because of the wind and because Hewitt was always right there,” said Karlović .
