Clay Giant Karlovic beats Patience 7-6(6) 7-6(1) 7-6(10)

Our favourite tiebreak king started his Roland Garros campaign in typical fashion.
Am I the only one who is anticipating a Karlovic - Nadal matchup?

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

I saw him at Wimbledon last year. I think its unfair that a tennis layer can only serve yet manages to win Although he has improved a tad.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Incidentally, fellow big guy Dick (waiting for Alfonso) Norman also won his first rounder. An impressive 6-1 6-3 6-3 against Edgar(?) Massa.

What if Karlovic beats Nadal, wouldn`t that be funny. Man we no groundstrokes to speak of beating king of clay????

I like: Mario Ancic, David Nalbandian, Nicolas Kiefer, James Blake, Marcos Baghdatis, Jose Acasuso, Novak Đokovic, Marin Cilic
I dislike: Ivan Ljubicic, Rafael Nadal, Nikolay Davydenko, Rainer Schuttler, Ivo Karlovic, Andy Murray, Gaston Gaudio

Why is it unfair? That is his go to shot, its not like all players are born with great serves, look at all the tall players with average serves, its just another shot, its like saying its unfair that so and so player wins wiht his forehand only...
