I totally agree with it but this surface is still grass and Kubot will be very tired. He won his 4th matches incuided Q-matches too and what should I say... the last two was very hard.

Karlovic wins in 4 unless he plays bad or maybe they can't play tomorrow. In these case would be 50-50% I think.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Kubot vs. Karlovic

Very sad to say, I predict Kubot to win here. He's a pretty decent returner, and he can serve and take the net away from Karlovic. To me, this isn't a good match-up at all for Ivo and he's going to have to serve himself to a win here, which is possible, but Kubot also can serve himself to a winning position.

I don't hate Kubot, BTW, he's got a pretty interesting game. But since Ivo needs this match much more, I hope he takes it.

Bad matchup for Ivo, but he will still be able to win in 4 with three tiebreakers.

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Kubot vs. Karlovic

I'm rooting for Karlovic but I sort of expect Kubot to push it to 4 or 5 and secure a victory. Want Ivo to show that even on green clay there is still room for a big man with a big serve

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: Kubot vs. Karlovic

Kubot may be little tired, but at least he is in form. Starting from May he won 10 matches and lost only to Djoko in Belgrade and to red hot Falla in RG. Karlo`s lack of match practice( especially on grass ) may be even more important factor than Kubot tiredness.
Ivo lost 4 matches in a row in Europe and played only 3 sets competition tennis on grass. He won only one set on grass this year vs injured player who retired in 1st round and suddenly he is overwhelming favorite to win ?
I dont buy it, I say Kubot in 4.

Tweet King in 4.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
