Im not a fan of tennis, but i was really impressed by Karlovic's performance, so i would like to know, as i put a bet on him because he was an outsider at 200-1, what are the realistic chances of him winning the tournament?

Leyton Hewitt wasn't playing at his best; he hasn't been playing too well at the previous tournaments, and was making hard work of his wins. So although Karlovic played well, Hewitt probably should have beaten him. Realistically, he could go further, but if he meets someone like Agassi or Roddick, or maybe even Henman, he could be in trouble. But good luck to him. He deserved his win as he played well. Who really knows how far he could go, all he can do is try to continue playing at his best.

You didn't get odds of 200-1 for no reason! If he wins it will be quite possibly the biggest shock in recent sporting history. You won't care though, you'll be rich.

It's not going to happen though mate.

Well the odds have been shortened quite a bit now, but they are still pretty long.
I know there isn't much chance, but £50 at 200-1, gotta be worth the risk.

Either way just be grateful to the youth, it takes Hewitt out the way - I don't think I could have put up with any more screams of:

"Come On !"

from the Aussie twat!

Well Karlovic didn't get through after getting knocked out by Max Mirnyi of Belarus, three sets to one:

7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Hope no-one blew loads of money of the unknown Croat.

I'd hate to be that tall. Even though I hate being short as well, I wouldn't like to go through life being 6 foot 10. Imagine how hard it would be to find good pants.

Me three. There are some annoying tennis players out there, and dear Lleyton is surely one of them...

I can't take ten year-olds, who want to hear their voice on TV saying;

"Come on, Tim!"

At Leyton Hewitt is a real man.

What does everyone think of Roddick. I think that he's a fab player, and if he doesn't win Wimbledon this year, I'm sure he's bound to win one of these years, especially when Agassi's retired. He's a hard hitter, and a brilliant server. One downside can be that watching him serve all those unreturnable serves can be a little boring, as points are short.
I still think that watching a classic serve-volleying match is more fun to watch, and more exciting. Points are longer, and some of the volleys are amazing. For volleying, I still think that Henman is right there at the top.

The last post was from me. I forgot to sign in. Just when I thought that that was going to be the post that would promote me to a Respected Member. Well I guess this'll have to be the one instead.
