I always look for him when the draw comes out so i would put him top 5, probably top 3. He makes me feel :scared: for my favourite players!

I think the telling fact is that the match he lost was against a low ranked Italian who is best on clay?

And wasn't it 6-7 6-7?

Karlovic, floater?
Given his height, I think he will have to drag his feet around just a little bit.

He just beat a former champion of the tournament 7-6 6-3. Who would you put as the most dangerous floater? Beck? hahahahaha........

Beck needs to hit up the challenger for few more months.

On a given day Ivo can beat anyone on Grass, just need a bit luck in tiebreaks.
Last year he took Federer to 2 sets!
Watch out for 6'10'' Ivo this year, little luck with draw and he can really go deep

I saw the match. I thought Hewitt would do better being such a good returner. If Hewitt can't return Karlovic's serves who can? Hewitt had it under control but lost the first set due to one error that gave Karlovic a mini break in the 1st set.

I am not sure if this was Hewitt at his best. Is he back in form since his foot injury? Well.....it's better to have drawn Karlovic in Queens than it would in Wimbledon.

My fear is that Federer will draw Karlovic 1st or 2nd round. Roger seems to draw the dangerous players like a magnet.

Yep. :) I don't think anyone wants to draw Rusedski either.

Well, Karlovic was a gladly seen customer in his first round with Kiefer at Roland Garros; but for Wimbledon, Karlovic better stays far away from Kiefer's section. I'm quite sure Ivo is doing some demage for Wimbledon and I envy nobody who has to play against him.

ivo is great on grass and terrible on other surfaces... so i wonder, what will happen when he plays a real good player, not recently-injured hewitt or others like him

What happens if Ivo plays a real good player on grass can be seen tomorrow in his final with Roddick or could be seen last year at Wimbledon against Federer. After a considerably "bad" start of both, in which Federer allowed Karlovic even two break points in the first set and in which Karlovic got broken, Federer almost played perfectly how it was needed against Karlovic and had (according to official stats) 4 and 3 unforced errors the whole 2nd and 3rd set, respectively. When Federer was in his rhythm, he knew he will never ever lose serve to Karlovic, did not take more risk than necessary in his groundstrokes and at the end he got the deciding points off Karlovic's serve in the two tiebreakers.
