Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

Nothing convinced me today that Ljubicic is a threat to defeat Karlovic.

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

It's hard to dismiss Karlovic right now. IMO Ljubicic is certainly a beatable opponent as long as he keeps on struggling on grass (even though Hanescu is not totally bad) and doesn't convince me otherwise.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

Karlovic has almost 1% of chance to break Ivan. Ivan needs to get 1 break..and has better chance of breaking Ivo, then Ivo breaking him.

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

Karlovic actually has bigger chance to break Ivan then opposite.

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

Ljubo dug himself into holes yesterday and rarely came out of them. Karlovic will make him pay for them. Plus, I think Ljubo is feeling it physically. He has played 4 3 set matches in the last 5 days and Karlovic has only ever played 2 sets, and never longer than 70 minutes!

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

Most probably, it'll go to tiebreaks.
If it does, then for Ljubicic, the key will be if he is able to take one point or two off Karlovic's serve, if Karlovic doesn't get his first serve in and puts in a short second serve (which he will most likely do, to avoid a double fault in the TB), can Ljubicic take advantage of it.

I believe Ljubicic can do it if he returns well today
, so 7-6 7-6 to Ljubicic in that case.

Back up your point with facts/stats.

Re: Who will win : Ljubicic vs Karlovic

I don't see Karlovic broken in this match.

Also, I don't think Ljubicic will garner more than 5 break points all match.

That makes alot of sense, considering Karlovic wasn't broken at all in his last grass tournament.

even thought ivan lost... here are the facts

Karlovic career wins 38
Ivan 191

this year Karlovic 8-13
Ivan 29-12

finals this year
Karlovic =1
Ivan= 4

also i think Ivan is #1 player on Croatian DC team, and Karlovic is not even on the team.

i hope that helps
