Ivo Karlovic.

I've only seen Ivo play twice... his Wimbledon win over Hewitt, and I couldn't like him then, because I have to be a know-it-all that can't like anyone remotely good or popular. And I watched him blow it at US Open vs. Henman, this year.

I love Ivo because he's male version of me. Big serve, and pray to win points after that.

But, I know very little else about him.

If some nice posters could teach me some more about him, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Re: Ivo Karlovic.

No. About 6'2. Which is comparable to a 6'10 guy.

Re: Ivo Karlovic.

At least Ivo is playing. That's all that really matters.

Re: Ivo Karlovic

A small version of a pic I took of Ivo playing against Srichaphan at Wimbledon this year, where he played with Jimmy in the doubles.

Re: Ivo Karlovic.

His baseline game looks 100% challengerish. And, he stutters, or at least he did.

But he beat Hewitt which was funny.

Re: Ivo Karlovic.

Yeah ever since a child, Ivo has had a speaking disability, but if you're patient it is not hard to understand what he means.
