Karlovic not holding his serve against Smyczek? might be time to throw in the towel

Sad to see him struggle this much. Might be wise to retire in Zagreb next month... Big fan of him though, so if he's motivated, he should continue.

Sad loss. Ivo's a streaky one though, I wouldn't be surprised to see him string together 3 or 4 wins in a tournament soon.

I don't think he will retire this year,but if he keeps playing like this he might.

I'm assuming he forgot his serve at home?

Yea, seems he's been losing to pretty much anyone with a racquet for a while now.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

why is this? Tim has good returns. Karlovic not able to break is far worse.
