The reason why Benjamin Becker is serve only

10/11 on 1st serve (91%)
1/11 on 2nd serve (9%)

that's a margin of 82%!!!! holy shit

the worst 2nd serve statistic i've ever seen in my life. against no other than ivo karlovic.

Re: The reason why Benjamin Becker is serve only

Its clearly because Ivo is such a greaaaaaat service returner, its only a matter of time until you hear his name along with the great returners such as Andre Agassi.

Becker is one of the most overrated players on the tour.
He is playing Ivo Karlovic on clay,that % is ridicoulous and he got broken 2 times!

Re: The reason why Benjamin Becker is serve only

Becker has since won five more points on his second serve -let the match finish before you condemn him. And whilst Karlovic is weak on the return in general, he proved he could have good spells in that department during San Jose, and also won a 6-3 set against Moya in Rome, lest we forget.

Re: The reason why Benjamin Becker is serve only

Is it possible that maybe Karlovic was actually returning well in that match? I´m fully aware of Karlovic being "all serve", but if Becker´s 2nd serve statistic looks like that, surely Karlovic was able to do something with his returns.

Re: The reason why Benjamin Becker is serve only

I know I will be ridiculed for this but when Karlovic's forehand return is working it is actually a great shot. Granted, you get the ball to his backhand and you have him but the forehand can unleash and when it's going in it's hard to stop.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

We saw against Murray in San Jose and other opponents all week, Karlovic likes to step to his left and take a big crack with the forehand at his opponent's second serves. When he gets good contact with the ball it's very difficult for the server to respond because he gives it a hell of a whack.
