ATP IN ZAGREB, 2ND ROUND, INDOOR HARD
Ivan Dodig (CRO) should prevail against Ivo Karlovic (CRO) in rather close sets.
Ivan Dodig is currently #63 of the ATP Tour, while Ivo Karlovic is currently #130.
Ivan Dodig is in a very good form at the moment. He made some good results at the AO and continued with a straight set win over Becker in this tournament. He is a very intelligent player who can play serve and volley, which should be enough against the big fella. Ivo Karlovic on the other hand is coming off a straight set win over Dimitrov, where he managed to win both sets in tiebreaks. Before that, he retired in Heilbronn and lost in the first round against Symczek in straight sets at the AO. His biggest strength is his service.

With that, look for the in-form and overall better player to prevail. Price at 1.83 for Ivan Dodig to win first set represents enough value for high stakes.
