Our favourite tiebreak king started his Roland Garros campaign in typical fashion.
Am I the only one who is anticipating a Karlovic - Nadal matchup?

I saw him at Wimbledon last year. I think its unfair that a tennis layer can only serve yet manages to win :) Although he has improved a tad.

Incidentally, fellow big guy Dick (waiting for Alfonso) Norman also won his first rounder. An impressive 6-1 6-3 6-3 against Edgar(?) Massa.

Why is it unfair? That is his go to shot, its not like all players are born with great serves, look at all the tall players with average serves, its just another shot, its like saying its unfair that so and so player wins wiht his forehand only... :rolleyes:
