This is impressive

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

It´s tragedy to watch baseline tennis on fast grass with bad bounces. I would prefer Llodra-Stepanek there, or Tsonga-Federer from top guys. That match with Tomic wasn´t nothing great to watch, because they both slice a lot and bounce was bad and low, so if you want to play rallies with slices all the time is boring.

I thought it was a great match actually.
Really showed off how brilliant Federer's footwork is.

The point I was making was not that serve stats won't improve - of course they will. My point was that the tennis does not become serve dominated. Sure if Karlovic plays on it, he's got a better chance of winning, but for the rest, it's not like suddenly Rafa will become Ivanisevic.

And if Karlovic would win on that court, well surely that's what he deserves, since serve is his weapon.
He'll barely win matches on tour level clay tournies, so that's the whole point of having different surfaces.
