Jo won once against him, and Darcis isn't the most amazing player to play Ivo... I think Jo has a good shot!

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

I hope so Karlovic on grass can be very dangerous. I just hope Jo is returning ok, that could be a key in this match.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

i suspect this match to enter in the record memory with the number of aces.
From the atp website there is an interesting stats.
Number of aces in 2009 (wimbledon is not included):
1/ Karlovic: 485 for 27 matches
3/ Tsonga: 359 for 41 matches

1st serve won:
1/ Karlovic: 84%
3/ Tsonga: 78%

Service games won:
2/ Karlovic: 91%
3/ Tsonga: 88%

(i dont add the last one bp saved, there is more difference and not in good side )but some stats from both are just
Tomorrow wil be a match of 2 aces machines
The one who will return more will win. They were talking about it in carrement tennis this morning and they said that Jo should not keep frustated to face lot of aces because on few points that Karlovic will have worst first serve it will be at this moment he could win the match, but it will not be easy.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

jo lost 1st set and i don't think he can come back and win the match. he rarely does after dropping the 1st set.
