Yeah I agree on the groundstroke front...Ivo is sh*t and a decent club player could take him on
But he doesn't need to rely on that as much on grass...his serve does the talking and when it comes to a tiebreak he just needs to win a point against the serve, most of the time for the set to be his. Because his serve is so lethal, it is on a par with MOST of Ivan's game. The serve counts for 50% of a match...Ivo fulfills the whole 50%. Ivan doesn't...but he isn't that far off.
I could see Ivo knocking off anyone in the Nottingham draw. I reckon he could have a better run than Ivan. Let's see who is right...although I reckon I will lose again!
