Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Indeed, zib is a good opener for Ivo...

unfortunately, if he beats zib, he then may face Andy roddick.... and then would it be Roddick or Roddick?

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Article about his first round win at Sunrise -

Karlovic aces first test


6-10 Croatian is heating up before Nasdaq

By Charles Bricker
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted March 16 2006




SUNRISE · One more big boomer would settle this. One more serve "out of a tree," as Andy Roddick once described it.

Ivo "The Ace Machine" Karlovic, tallest player on the ATP Tour, went into his pre-toss rocking motion Wednesday and blasted the final shot of this one hour and 30 minutes of tedious two-ball rallies at Chris Guccione's ample body, handcuffing the red-headed Aussie to win 7-6 (5), 6-4 and earn a spot in the second round of the $100,000 BMW Championship.

You don't need to ask Karlovic's height. He's had "6'10'' embroidered at the neck of his sleeveless tennis shirts, though some time next week, before or perhaps during the Nasdaq-100 Open, he could slip into a Heat jersey for a shootaround with Shaquille O'Neal and the lads.

His agent is working on that gig, and he'll find a receptive ear from assistant coach Bob McAdoo, who is more than a bit crazy about tennis.

The big Croatian, seeded fourth, now plays veteran Paraguayan Ramon Delgado today. Delgado advanced along with No. 2 Dmitry Tursunov, No. 3 Andreas Seppi, No. 5 Alberto Martin, No. 6 Florian Mayer and Peter Luczak, who beat one of the tournament favorites, Rainer Schuettler, 6-4, 6-4.

Karlovic's 17 aces won't add to his tour-leading 255 because this is a Challenger and not a regular tour event.

Karlovic faced three break points, all in the same game of the second set, and defended all of them. The only break of the match came on Guccione's final service game, when, at 30-30, Karlovic smacked a forehand that hit the net cord and jumped over the 6-7 Aussie. On break point, Guccione double-faulted.

With a growing number of foreign players in the NBA, Karlovic won't look out of place in a Heat practice session, even if it has been some time since he has played basketball.

But, he insisted, "I can shoot." For the first time at Nasdaq this year, Karlovic is going to feel at home. He and his wife, Alsi, have moved to Aventura. He and coach Tarik Benhabiles, Andy Roddick's first professional coach, train at the Nasdaq site at Key Biscayne.

love and hugs xxxxx
