Chennai:

Croatian Ivo Karlovic on Friday praised Somdev Devvarman for playing "amazing tennis" in their quarterfinal clash of the Chennai Open which the Indian won 7-6(4), 6-4 to storm into the semifinals.

"He (Somdev) was amazing. He was able to put the ball on court but I could not. I have no other words to explain. I was trying only to put the ball in the court," Karlovic said in the post-match press conference.

Karlovic was not happy with his performance and said he has no words to explain it.

"It is horrible. I do not remember when I played like this. I could not hit one ball on the court," said the fourth seeded Croatian.

"It is amazing and disappointing. It is the beginning of the year and I had prepared well enough but it is horrible," he said.
