Interesting match. H2H Tipsarevic leads 1-0, at Delray Beach this year 7-6 (14) 7-6 (1).

Tipsarevic has an amazing season, plays really good tennis, new member of TOP30 and is looking for a first title. But remember last year, when he lost in the final just before Wimby, was a bit tired and lost to Clement in 4.

Karlovic is always a danger, but he wasn't good at Queen's vs Anderson, doing DF after DF. If Dr. Ivo passes 1st round at Wimbledon, he always makes it deep.

So what do you think? I hope Tipsy in tight 5-setter after which he gets tired and loses to Arnaud one more time :)

I think if Karlovic plays well he can beat much more harder opponents than Tipsy. I expect Ivo's win, in 4 or 5 sets.

In 5 sets Ivo's opponents are almost unbeatable :lol:

And Ivo is really strange at Wimbledon. If he passes 1st round, he can't stop in the second (1 time 3rd, 1 time 4th, 1 time QF).

But he can lose i don't know how in this 1st round to players like Bracciali and Stadler, Wawrinka in 2006...

So which side of Ivo will appear this year, quite unpredictable.

Gonna try to catch this match if i can. Could be an interesting one. Ivo needs 1st set because if he loses the 1st and is heading for a 4/5 seter i think he will lose some focus. On the other hand Tipsarevic could be a little worn down so who knows really. That is why the match would be fun. Potential for epic tiebreaks, choking, counter-choking. Epic level serving etc etc

too bad, I like both of them. If Karlovic has a decent 1st serve % I don't see Tipsarevic having much of a chance, really.
I'll say Karlovic in 4.

He might be tired. :eek:
Idk, Janko needs to get it to take a long time. They have fairly similar games, only Janko volleys a bit less and is 200x better minus serve. He'll have trouble breaking, he should play not as high-risk as usual. Just move Karlovic around and force an error.

Ivo will win this in 4.
If he serves like he knows how to, Tipsa is screwed.
Also, Tipsy is so mental-weak.

Ivo to end his losing streak of 5. He has to serve lot better though than in Queens. He badly needs good points from Wimby, I guess his days of protected ranking entries are over soon...
