Wouldn't surprise me if Ivo wins this tbh...I think he has a better chance on a slower court, which increases his chances of getting returns into play. No matter the surface, he still gets the wicked angles and placement on his serve. Think back to last year when he was winning multiple matches on clay.
murray is the favorite. but he isn't in a good form.(even though he beat federer.) Actually federer was right in that interview about muuray. he actually waits for opponents error rather than trying to win a point on his own.
Karlovic does have a better chance than last year.
my prediction would be murray in three sets. But i hope i'm wrong.
I think Murray will win but the level of aggression will need to be a bit higher. You want to control the points with percentage tennis against Karlovic, if Murray continues as he is Ivo will be able to get it on the FH and whack. Should be some good points, I remember they had a very good match in San Jose last year.
