Karlovic vs John Patrick Smith by Experttennis
John Patrick Smith is a bit underrated in this one cause I dont consider Ivo as much of a favorite to win as the bookmakers do , he is a great server and likes to come forward , also another lefty and he will get 90% of serves on Ivo's backhand throughout the match , specially on the AD side . I dont think that we will see any breaks in the first set between the two , both are great servers and Ivo didnt play in a while due to some injuries and his conditioning is probably good now but he will not at his best when it comes to the exchanges in the first set . Against J.P.Smith I think that he will hold his ground on serve but on the return I dont fancy him having too many chances to break or maybe at all in the first set . Tiebreak looks as the best option .
