Default WWW Indian Wells R1: Karlovic vs Kubot

Ivo is defending QF points but I believe Kubot should win this match. Perfect match-up for him, and although the high-bouncing courts and light air in Indian Wells favor Karlovic, it will also help Kubot, whose serve is one of his main weapons. Kubot won't give Ivo any rhythm and Kubot returns well, and the slower courts will give Kubot time to attack the way he likes to from the baseline. H2H is 2-0 Kubot and I expect it to go to 3-0 after this match.

Karlovic should be confident from Davis Cup, but he lost to Matosevic with two breaks of serve

How are the courts here compared to Delray Beach?

If Kubot returns well, then I think you are right. Kubot usually beats big servers or loses in a close match. Also yeah, he beaten two times Karlovic, once on grass. I hope courts won't be fast at all.

Ivo should finally manage to beat Kubot. Ivo likes IW courts, and despite that loss to Matosevic, he is in a good shape and IMO he should win.

Kubot is one of the best returners on tour and therefore a terrible match-up for Karlovic. Kubot in 2.

Guy is having a brilliant start of the season,plays great tennis,but loses 1 match to Matosevic who went to reach the final, in windy conditions in Delray Beach,and suddenly he's in terrible shape? No.

Kubot is not a good matchup for Ivo but I hope he somehow wins,one more reason is that Roddick awaits in R2.And btw Ivo has 10 times better chance to beat Roddick than Kubot,nevermind the H2H because Roddick is not even close the same player as before.

Not from what I saw in Delray Beach. Despite difficult conditions, Ivo was so slow and served worse than usual. Probably tanking but who knows...

And dude, Kubot has crushed Roddick before and still can. Has the perfect nimble, unorthodox, net play game to do so again, just like in Beijing 2009.
