Bernard falls in Karlovic rematch

Bernard Tomic has gone down in an epic match against Ivo Karlovic at the ATP Toronto Masters, a rematch of their recent Claro Open Colombia final in Bogota.

In a near-identical score to their match three weeks ago, the contest was again decided in a final-set tiebreak, only this time in was Karlovic coming out on top, 3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(6).

The match featured a combined 43 aces to just two double faults, with Karlovic’s tally of 30 aces proving the difference in the end.

Although Tomic was able to stave off several match points in the closing stages of the contest, he couldn’t deny the 35-year-old sealing victory in one hour and 53 minutes.
