WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Who will win this?

Ivo is on fire, so he deserves a chance

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Karlovic has beaten three quality players in Stepanek, Benneteau and Ljubicic but I still pick Nadal here. Nadal has is 2-0 vs. Karlovic with his wins coming on carpet and grass so I think he will be fine on the Australian Open courts.

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Would be funny if we had a karlo/Isner quarter

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Karlovic vs Isner would be fantastic. I think Ivo's chances to upset Nadal are bigger than John's chances to beat Murray.

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

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Hard to say but I have to cheer for Ivo. I think Nadal will win but not rooting for Ivo is like the equivilent of killing a puppy or something.

Go Ivo!!

Why is rooting for Karlo hard? He's the underdog.

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Its not really possible for Karlovic to pose a threat to Nadal, its not even likely we will see tie-breakers, and if we do they'll be one-sided. I was fearing Ljubicic a lot more.

Re: WWW AO R16: Karlovic vs Nadal

Don't be fooled, Karlovic won't win rallies v Nadal, and he won't get every 1st serve it, probably around 70%, and the 2nd serve won't be enough to prevent a rally.
