Prediction: Dr Ivo will have a surprising run at Wimby this year.

Ivo Karlovic has always been GS midget, reaching R4 at a Slam only once in his career and never winning a single 5-set match.
Lets have a look at all his Wimby perfomances.
2003: qualifies, beats Hewitt and losses to Mirnyi in R3.
2004: beats Srichaphan and Lopez, losses to Fed in R4
2005: losses to Bracialli in R1 in 5 sets
2006: losses to Wawrinka in R1 in 5 sets
2007: losses to Santoro in R1 in 5 sets
2008: losses to Stadler in R1 in 4() sets
Now it`s 5 years since his best run here.
Despite having such a bad record at Wimby, in his grass career Ivo has reached Queens F (2005) and also won Nottingham twice (2007,2008)
You hear it here first: Ivo Karlovic wins his 1st ever 5-setter, upsets some top-10 player and reaches QF!!!

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

He will shock us all and make it to the 2nd round, beating Falla on the way.

A surprising run to the second round.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

I'm guessing R3. It's all about the matchups

Roger Federer. Legend.

No top player would like to face him in R3.

Re: Prediction: Dr Ivo will have a surprising run at Wimby this year.

he served 55 aces on CLAY and still lose

it all depends on whom he's serving against, but I honestly don't see him upsetting a top player

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

His serve is up and running. A suprising run could happen.

Re: Prediction: Dr Ivo will have a surprising run at Wimby this year.

I reckon he will lose to Tommy Haas, who will go onto have an amazing run and cause a few big upsets.
