Clay may not be his best surface but he nearly beat Fed on clay a few years ago.

Re: Houston Rd1: "clay king" karlovic def Benjamin Becker 7-5 7-6(3)

the curious thing is that the last year Dr. Ivo had some decent results on clay on minor events

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Karlovic is a reigning quarter-finalist in the fifth best clay tournament in the world...

while Clay may not be the best surface for Ivos game, he loves playing on it.

I still cant believe there was a thread on here not too long ago saying Becker will be top 20 and when i disagreed, everyone said just wait and see. Well im waiting but not seeing too much.

Agassi would have lost against anyone in that day. He was in so much pain there...

That was the price to pay for give us the match and the performance of the year the match before!

I would love to see MTF's reaction if Karlovic actually plays and defeats Roddick on clay this season!

That was really tough to watch. He was hardly able to move at the end.

Expected win.

Believe me, compared to Becker, Ivo is a clay king.

Re: Houston Rd1: "clay king" karlovic def Benjamin Becker 7-5 7-6(3)

Karlovic is indeed a veritable claycourt animal. In the course of winning Rome in 2004, Moya was almost outrallied by the Croat in his 6-4 3-6 6-4 win.

And yes, coming close to beating Federer on crushed brick is more than a little impressive also.
