Pretty much the best first round match.

Karlovic's game is in such a mess that Hewitt has to be the favourite here despite his lack of matches.

Surprised Hewitt didn't play a challenger before Queen's. He surely can't expect to have too deep a run here.

Karlovic will routine him, like he always does (on grass)...still remember Wimbledon 2003, when he sent Lleyton who was world Nr 1 and defending champ back to Australia.

Hewitt lost their two grass meetings. He'll be up for this.

Karlovic still has shoulder issues. can't serve at 100%. Good match to earn some money

Karlovic is still not 100 % so I'm thinking this might be close, favouring Hewitt

Lleyton will likely win in straights, because regardless of Lleyton not having matches, Ivo is both injured and in bad form.

I would be incredibly surprised if Rusty ever played a challenger. He has too much of an ego.

Hewitt in 2.
