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

Just been looking at Ivo's Nottingham draw:

Andreev in Round 1 who could be dangerous
Possible Round 2: Number 1 seed and countryman Ivan Ljubicic

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

Oh well, I guess he has to move on to Nottingham now.

Igor Andreev in Round 1, lets just hope that Ivo isn't exhausted.

I agree with you croat123 in the Newport forum that Ivo should play there, where he will be a seed and get a decent draw instead of playing the swiss Clay tournament where he may have to even go through qualifying.

But good luck in Nottingham!

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

honestly, if he wants a title, he should ask for a wc there. the top seed will be dent and dent just isn't nearly as solid on his serve as ivo is.

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

Yes, while if he plays in the clay tournament, there are specialist like Gaudio there who thrive on clay and Ivo won't last long at all!

Regarding tomorrow, Ivo isn't scheduled to play so hopefully he rests well where I guess he will play on Tuesday.

For a title, I think he has a great chance at Nottingham also!
