    Karlovic has won the toss and has elected to receive.








    Does not compute.

    10 serves, as fast as they can has to be in the box. This is going to be cool.

    I don't forsee any breaking 146.

    Another chance to practice returns and make a bit more $$ for Milo.......he is the point of interest in this tourney.

    Delpo is far more riveting.

    To each his own.

    how is sampras with a big personality is beyond me..

    Milos is a nice guy..heart seems in the right place and so is Karlovic. Its nice from SAP open to choose Karlovic as a exo player. I never thought this would happen though..Karlovic has always been that court no. 15 player and crowd is usually against him or supporting other player cause of that ace fest, but just check that guys twitter - hillarious stuff!:)

    Since when was exhibition a code word for snoozefest?

    Karlovic and exhibition are two words not two be used in the same sentence, unless its the freak show exhibition. Let symencek play instead on monfils.

    Ivo just looked bored.

    He probably breaks the sound barrier when he feels like it.

    lol

    As you can see, tennis players really do go for serves as hard as they can during the matches.

    Verdasco has a mean flat serve when he wants to crank it, he could prob hit close to 150.

    Ivo's fastest ever was 153, so at least he has that over Raonic (for the moment).

    Give it a few years and Raonic will have the fastest serve in the world.

    In the words of Billy Mays: I GUARANTEE IT!

    He has served several serves over the years around 145-148. I saw him serve 150, 151 and 153 in three different matches. The 153 serve was flat outwide.

    And I agree, Verdasco has one heck of a mean serve.

    Well the possibility is always there, but right now he's a bit too inexperienced on the big stage. However, He does seem unfazed by the thing he's destined for and if he reaches a slam final he could be a big threat.

    Don't see that happening in 2011. Definitely top 20 or even top 10, however.

    Did you see his match against Simon Greul? He can definitely put in a poor performance... even against a player he should beat quite handily. Greul's amazing defense and ROS gave Milos some problems.
