The tallest men in the top 100 got to the Rd. of 16

Ivo Karlovic
Mario Ancic
Alex Popp
Mark Philippoussis
Sjeng Schalken
Florian Mayer


Why is it that the tallest players do their best on this surface where the balls are so low? Anyone want to hedge a bet?

Conans Uncle Ted recalls a day when players of 5ft 9 and 5ft 11 like Connors and Cash were dominating the game and fears in 25 years players will be 7ft and over.

Conan's Uncle Ted is rehashing the same complaints made five years ago and doesn't realize they hold even less water now. Andre Agassi? Lleyton Hewitt? Juan Carlos Ferrero? GIANTS.

Conans Uncle Ted is only 5ft 7 so would be happier playing Oilver Rochus who is 5ft 4.
