Goran was the better clutch server, and still holds the record for most aces in a year.

but karlovic had 20 aces per match while goran had 15.i mean that was their's best averige in one season.and in goran's time courts were faster.

Karlovic probably has a better 2nd serve....and puts up monster ace numbers on slower and higher bouncing courts than Goran did throughout his career. Goran was the man but Karlovic has a better serve. Too much power and angle due to his height.

Karlovic has weak 2nd serve (given his height), Ivanisevic was able to save break/set/match points with aces after 2nd serve - it's something Ivo can only dream about with his conservative 2nd serve.

It's not all about hitting aces, Goran set up the point for him to finish all the time, I don't think you can say the same about Karlovic whenever the ball is returned when you take the aces out of the equation.

IVANISEVIC - I'm with the majority here. Goran with no doubt in my mind. When you say who has the better serve, I think of far more than numbers or just first serve. It's all of those things plus placement, strategy, second serve, effectiveness under pressure, disguise, toss consistency, and speed variation. When all factors are considered Dr Ivo is not even in the same league as Goran and Pete.
