    Oddly enough if Wimbledon changes the grass (pipe dream, I know) to be super quick, Karlovic would be pretty scary to face (a bit like Goran). Although Goran is a much better player in every step.

    On the flip side Karlovic can barely return mediocre serves, and cant break serve to save his life even on the current grass. What would he even do returning guys serve on faster grass.

    HILARIOUS. So...they were reading his serves based on PATTERNS. LOL! Yep...every 30-30 point Goran went wide....BUT ONLY on clay, hardcourt or indoors mind you....the ace king of the tour....PATTERNS. Could hit every box, and was known for actually purposely being able to lean his body the other way when hitting to the opposite corner.....

    NO. Nothing irrational, which is why your only reply is the "ps" and you decided to try randomly bringing up PETE SAMPRAS. That's not irrational. That's a fine defense. LOL.

    Athleticism? Saw him yesterday in the Dutch classics, bad mover and he wasn't that great an athlete in his prime. I like Goran better as a tennispersonality and I was happy when he won Wimbledon, but I don't think he was a great mover.
