A match between 2 ball machines would be more aesthetically pleasing, adrenaline pumping and exciting than one between these two all serve mugs.

Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

If you want to get your adrenaline going, try putting some money on one or the other. It makes a big difference!

In all the years, they played only once, with Ivo triumphing 2:1 on grass. I think Ljubo will edge him here.

Karlo is playing really good tennis, besides the serving, lately, so I'll fancy him to win this.

I think Karlovic will win it, simply because both players sometimes throw brainless serving games, giving breaks with mistakes. However, Karlovic has the better serve and should hold serve more often (also big servers hate to play big servers most of the time so neither will be pleased with the matchup).

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
