Post Best Serve

According to Todd Martin Ivo Karlovic has the best serve of mens tennis.

Martin described the serve of 6' 10'' Karlovic as “remarkable.” Martin added: “It's not the biggest (I've seen) but it's the best. It's unbelievable. He serves from a tree, he serves hard. But he is so accurate it's astounding.”

Martin has won all five tie-breaks he has played in the first two rounds. In his opening match Martin rallied from two sets down for the ninth time in his career to defeat Antony Dupuis 4-6, 4-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(4), 6-3.

Asked if he considered the prospect that he may not be able to break Karlovic's serve, Martin said: “I walked out on the court understanding that that was well within the realm of possibility. I knew Mardy and Ivo didn't have any breaks the other day… I bumped into Sjeng Schalken… and he said he'd beaten Karlovic six, six and six in Flushing Meadows last year. It was nice to hear that somewhere along the line he lost a few tie-breaks also.”
