Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

ranked 60 th in the world.
how do you rate this player?
personnaly, I think he is a genius. He manages to beat and to threaten top players with his serve only...
Is he gonna be at Wimbledon what Puerta has been at Roland Garros?

Re: Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

I think Karlovic is just too tall.
How is his movement?
Does he move okay on any surface?

Re: Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

i dont think his problem is that he's too tall.. okay cuz of that he cant move good enough, but cuz of that he is the best server on tour. his problem is that he cant return good enough even the worst serve's on tour and his backhand is pathetic
and by the way.. i cant see him past 3rd round even with the best (for him) draw.

I really love to see year after year how " french fries " accept the fact that having a great tennis level has nothing to do with the money. The FFT spends millions to have talents like Clement or Benneteau not to menction that Grand slam choker Amelie MORE-LESBO .
We put the players & talent, you pay that´s the deal !!!

Re: Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

I think he could maybe go 4th or Qrts at Wimbledon if he gets a good draw. But I don't think he could seriously challenge for the tournament or anything.

Re: Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

Karlovic is one of worst groundstroker`s in history of the game. If this guy have just average backhand and forhand like Kohnschreiber for example he will be easily Top 20 player. I mean he is in top 100 based on his to huuge serve alone.

I talked to him once, he is one of most stuppidest man that i ever met. Perhaps is te retardet, coz he sound like that.

ONE&ONLY


GORAN IVANIŠEVIĆ


I like: Mario Ančić, Xavier Malisse, Richard Gasquet, Mihail Zverev, Gustavo Kuerten, J.C. Ferrero, P.H. Mathieu, Thomas Hass, Rafael Nadal, Carlos Moya, Ivo Karlovic, Nicholas Kiefer, Andrei Pavel, David Nalbandian and up-and-coming Marin Čilić.....
I dislike: Andy Roddick Jiri Novak, Guilermo Canas, Wayne Ferreira, Greg Rusedski, Tommy Robredo, Alexander Popp, Tim Henman, Paradorn Srichaphan, .....

I admire and Im bored with Roger Federer

Re: Karlovic: crying or laughing, pathetic or genius?

hey, i wouldn't mind having his career...

seriously, he has no ground game and very average volleys. and yet, he has been in the top100 for a couple of years now and has beaten some great players.

And your point being??? I hope you make better arguements than MORE-LESBO .
I agree with the choker part, best choker in womens tennis hands down. Plz keep peoples sexual lives out of this, its just low.

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka
