All-serve affair in Melbourne.

Just sit back and enjoy. Nothing but huge serves and booming grounstrokes.

Such a shame that one of these two entertaining guys have to lose in the first round.

Opelka to shock and prevail in easy 5.

People can take the piss all they like, I'd rather watch these 2 winning points with aces and one-two punches than 2 people doing next to nothing with the ball just waiting for an error.

Although I don't know for certain I'd hazard a guess that when tennis was 1st invented it was as simple as 'let's try and hit the ball past each other' and not 'let's hit the ball to each other until we bore each other to death and 1 of us dumps it into the net or sprays it wide/long'.

Yes.

I think Opelka said he's 7 feet some time ago.

Hopefully he meets Karlovic soon and that will be ultimate record. We can also judge if he's really 7 feet tall.

Edit:

It'd seem like Isner needs get that hair thingy done the front to catch up with them both in height and coolness :smoke:

They look the same height to me but are standing differently. Shoulders all match. Although Karlo has the bigger head and Opelka the longer neck
