Post Indian Wells R4: Ivo Karlovic vs. Albert Montanes (23)

Winner goes through to face Nadal, probably.

So, who wins?
Hard one to predict....
I think Albert will win in 3, he's a much better player and is more steady and has the mental strength edge. Not to mention he is better off the ground than Ivo.
Ivo will be hard to break though.

Discuss...

Ivo in 2, he's been unreal off the ground so far.

Hoping Montanes can take a set though.

If Ivo repeats his level of play of yesterday it will be Ivo's in straights.

Oh McCabby.

Montanes is one of the worst players to have ever appeared on tour. Karlovic is Edberg compared to fat Albert.

Wordy Life, I respect you and I always look forward to your comments but now you're spreading shit from your mouth.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

How can you even say that?
Montanes is a great, mentally tough, consistent player. He's a nice guy too, nothing bad about him and he's a good professional player.
Not Albert's fault he doesn't have a massive serve to help him through every match he plays. He has to work extremely hard to win matches, and he does...

Montanes >>>>>>> Karlovic.

Doctor's really lucky with the draw here, 3 defensive players in a row, should march on

Montanes is one of the worst returner on tour, Canas returns serves better with one of his syringe.
