well I think this is partly because he is not a powerful server. I think a guy who volleys like him but serves like Dent or Isner could still be quite succesfull.

ivo karlovic was 14 in the world in 2008 and he is a poor volleyer (well the volleys are not that terrible but the movement at the net is).
