Default WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

Melzer really shit the bed in his season opener with Petzschner, Karlovic is always trouble. I think Melzer is gonna shoot himself in the foot on a couple of his service games and Karlovic is going to take this in 4.

Default Re: WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

The H2H is 5-0 in favor of Melzer, and I think Ivo never took a set off of him, so it'd be quite a big thing if he managed to win 3 in the same match now.

Melzer had quite a horrible year, last year, imo, and he has to be really lacking confidence right now and Karlovic is not the guy I think Melzer wants to be dealing with

I hope you're right, but also Ivo's confidence probably won't be high facing a guy he's 0-11 in sets against.

I'll go Melzer in 4 due to the H2H.

Default Re: WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

As has been said, the H2H suggests a Melzer win, but you just can't ignore that 2011 season. If it never happened, I'd say the Austrian in 3. I'll still be nice and say Melzer in 4, but it won't be easy.

Default Re: WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

Melzer had some alright preparation at the Kooyong Classic exho, beating Tsonga and Monfils while taking a set off Fish. Along with the H2H advantage, I wouldn't dare downplay the Austrian's chances in this match.

Default Re: WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

Given the year Melzer just had, he's lucky still to be seeded. Before I saw the head-to-head I would have said Dr Ivo without question but now I'm not so sure. I guess Melzer has the quality to win easily if he shows up but that is a big "if"...

Melzer in 3, Karlopvic is a King of serve but his footwork is not good at all so How could he run after Melzer's vicious dropshots ??

Default Re: WWW AO R1: Karlovic vs. Melzer?

Melzer is lucky to be seeded average top 50 player, Ivo is going to be worse with every season and his serve is also not so dangerous than before. Ivo´s serve wasn´t that good in his first 2 matches this year, so i would be surprised if Melzer didn´t manage to break him at least twice. I would say Melzer in 4 sets, can loose 1TB maybe.
