Not sure about god mode, but the 6-2 score was NID.

Mr.Talent Karlovic is still annoying the tour with his talent and unfortunately the same will do Anderson

for the umpteenth time, talent does not equal consistency. A talented player can reach a very high level of play, but it says nothing about him/her being able to do this consistently. Anderson IS talented, and he has played very well before. Your reasoning suggests that anyone outside the top 10 isn't talented

Anderson isn't top 10, but neither is Verdasco

he's talented at serving and ripping the ball apart, regardless of the landing position of the latter.

he's among the most talented serve bot bashers indeed, there are only 3-4 of them in the top 100, despite probably hundreds would like to make it as far as Anderson with nothing but a serve.

I personally prefer multyfaceted players, with more than Karlovic and Anderson.

I would watch Simon - Monfils compared to Anderson - Karlovic, to say how disgusting this kind of style is.

It's like comparing Shaq to Dwayne in terms of basketball talent. One is a giant who couldn't throw the ball in a pool from 5 meters and the other one is an actual basketball player.

Same goes for tennis and a comparison between Anderson and 97% of the top 100.

Anderson - a talented athlete. Not really a tennis player. Could possibly be as good at basket or volleyball.

A pity he hasn't tried, would have spared us (me..) the awkward situation.

Luckily Bolt didn't catch a tennis racquet as a kid, we'd be watching tennis on sandpaper with 10cm balls already

oh I would agree with your assessment, although Anderson has a pretty good ground game and Karlovic really doesn't. And he certainly is not the most talented guy of them all, but he has some great skills and pretty good footwork for a tall guy.
It all comes down to personal preference. I like Anderson, his game is powerful, but indeed does not have alot of variation.

I actually prefer multi-talented headcases (Marat Safin, Fernando Gonzalez, Tommy Haas, and now Jerzy Janowicz)

Good victory for Kevin and moreover great start of the season overall (Finalist at Sydney and 4thR now at the AO. I wouldn't say that it's a surprising victory at all considering the present situation of both players.
Now he faces the winner of Berdych-Melzer (all the roads seem to follow to Berdych).

I wouldn't say that Anderson is a talented player but he seems to know well that he depends of his serve and set himself in an attacking position everytime he has a chance because his defensive game and all around movement are really poor.

well, i'm mostly pissed off he somehow brought his A+ game in the last set, otherwise it's all clear about the guy.

It is though frustrating Verdasco to lose from an eventually lesser player not because of his own muggeries, it's smth that has probably never happened before.

Extremely disapointing

Very nice result. Kevin played a superb return game, when he broke serve in the 5th set along with Verdasco's spirit. Great win, and hopefully he can trouble Berdych a bit.

well that's understandable If they both bring their A-game, I believe Verdasco would win, but not easily.
