Sorry, was that tennis out there?

Last 5 Ivo matches (3 clay 2 grass), he's had 163 aces in 16 sets. Not like he's taking risks either, he's averaging 71% first serve (and winning approximately all of them).

He may be an unwatchable muppet, but you have to give credit to him - that's his weapon, it's the best first serve in the history of tennis, working at its very peak.

The Karlovic serve is a weapon of mass destruction :devil:. On grass you should not bother trying to break the guy's serve, you just have to wait for the tie break. If he serves at over 70% first serves there is nothing you can do.

:worship: Mahut, be afraid, be very afraid!

Karlovic serves from a roof, he should be kicked in the balls if he didn't take advantage of that.

Thank god no one in the Karlovic camp understand statistics, else they would understand that if he plays 2nd serve like a 1st serve he would actually win more points even double faulting 30% of the time.
