Thats pretty wierd, about 3 hours ago I said in another thread I wanted Rochus and Karlovic to become a doubles team so that we can laugh at their sizes....3 hours later they're drawn to play each other :confused:

That's hilarious! I have that Popp-Rochus pic saved and everytime I look at it I always wonder what a Karlovic-Rochus photo would be like.

Should be a trip.

Don't worry, I'll try my best to take a pic when they are next to each other. When I first saw the draw sheet I couldn't believe the tallest player is playing the smallest.

the only other comparable one was chang vs popp(1 foot difference)...but even that is nothing compared to this.

Oh plz......Getty images... don't disappoint us... I am waiting!!!! :lol:

It will take a skilled photographer to get both guys in the frame. My ex was a foot shorter than me, and we had the same problems getting her and me in the picture.

Yeah, saw the match live on court 3 here at the Nasdaq-100. Fantastic match. Ollie played really well when he had to in the final set tie-break. The crowd laughed when they shook hands at the end. The size difference is so huge 5'4" v 6'10". Well done Ollie! :)

hahaha I have been wanting those two to play each other for this reason lol.

Plus, Karlovic seems even taller in real life. Like, I know how tall he is, but when you're standing right next to him looking up, um yeah :lol:

It's just funny to see, but it's not really making fun of someonce's size, it depends. There is no need to. Karlovic can use his height, and Rochus is a great player despite his size.
I'm not that much taller as Olivier, I'm as tall as his brother. ;)

Ya!
No one wants to be this size.
I don't feel that funny to see that photo.
Though you're small,I like you. :)

I know the height issues. I´m usually a lot taller than my guys but that´s no big deal for neither of us. Hehehe. :lol:

The picture is very cute. :hearts:
