WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Karlovic

Murray leads the H2H 4-0, their last encounter taking place at Wimbledon this year. I recall a lot of footfalls foot faults and loose balls. I'm too lazy to cap their H2H history right now, so this will have to do.

Sleep-deprived me is obviously a mug.

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Karlovic

Is this confirmed already? If so, I think Karlovic might be motivated to win here.


If this match will happen, I think Murray will win in 2 sets, 6-0 6-1.

Wow. Happy for dr. Ivo if true. Another big match.

I support Federer, Murray, Karlovic and some others.

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Karlovic

The big donkey stands no chance - Murray remembers his classless behaviour at Wimbledon. You don't besmirch the Olympic Champion's own patch and get away with it. Prepare for some marvellously crafty tennis that will outwit the big donk (the kind that won't be appreciated on here because supposed hardcore fans just want to see people mash the ball as hard as they can).

But what if Karlovic invested all his money into a bakery? What if he will double bagel Mugray 7-6 7-6? What then?

Absolutely insane. From a crazy hard R1 to another crazy hard one!

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Its funny, but as a Karlovic fan I can tell you that this will not be a harder test than Monfils. Karlovic lost to Chiudinelli of all people, without breaking him even once. I dont see this match being a hard test

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Karlovic

If we look at Ivo´s last matches and his loss to CHiudinelli here i would say Murray withoug needing tie-breakers, Ivo´s serve also isn´t what it used to be and he will face best fastserve returner, Murray will get a lot of 1st serves IN and well Ivo on 2nd serve won´t do much. Murray something like 6-3, 6-4.

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Karlovic

I hope Dr Ivo wins with Murray footfaulting on matchpoint . We need him fresh so he can own Djoko in the Shanghai SF . Realistically though, I expect the Asian swing vulture to do his vulturing .

Murray would dump a load of whisky gravy on the bread, foiling Ivo's plans. And that also serves as a nice metaphor for shutting down Karlovic's serve.

Look out, MR FUN is here! I could report your post for suggesting that I have a drug addiction, but I'm not so pathetic.
