Default Remembering the greatest rivalry in tennis history: Roddick - Karlovic





So sad to realize we will never see another rematch of this kind of tennis in its purest form. If anyone has some of their matches on tape I would highly appreciate it, since Youtube weirdly enough has completely overlooked this great rivalry outside of the footage I've posted above.

This. is. TENNIS!

Still sad about Ivo not beating Dickrod in the Queens final but he did go on to win a few tournaments later so it's all good

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Oh please, this rivalry has nothing on the greats like Ferrer-Monaco.

Who wants to watch players use legitimate weapons when we can watch two players recreate the classic game of pong?

Even Rosewall vs Laver can't stand a chance against this rivalry

Always funny when there was a disappointing week and they had to choose a mediocre play like that

I demand they bring that segment back.

Actually that's not true. I have no idea who chooses the play of the weeks because they are often completely wrong.

The Safin sliding volley from 2004 Monte Carlo is the funniest.

This is no Simon vs. Monfils but it's up there for sure.
