Tennis tips and betting predictions. Ivo Karlovic – Lukas Rosol ATP Doha 2015
Ivo Karlovic’s height (6 ft 11 in) enables him to serve accurately and with high speed. So logically enough, the giant from Croatia builds his tennis on this element. Also Karlovic shows good net game and, oddly enough, is very reliable on return. When being on return he takes the ball and then approaches the net. Strictly speaking, when being on serve he also rushes to the net, unless he hits an ace. So to beat Karlovic one will need two elements: good return and well delivered passing shots.
Lukas Rosol is an aggressive player who needs time to warm it up. Oftentimes Lukas takes his time psyching up for the match and loses the first set. But then he thrashes his opponent. But Ivo Karlovic is not the best opponent for the start. It’s useless to attack him. Unfortunately, Lukas knows no other means but attacking. We predict it that Karlovic simply won’t let him warm it up. Moreover, sharp tennis by the Croat will be a deathly challenge for the Czech.
Karlovic has one more advantage. As hi tennis is mainly based on the strong serve, he doesn’t need so much practice as the baseliners do. So the Croat can only benefit from the winter holidays.
Our pick: Ivo Karlovic in 2 sets
We don’t expect a lot of break points, but on tie break Ivo Karlovic should outclass Lukas Rosol.

IMHO Federer will win like 6:2 6:4 or so.

Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.
