We are going to witness a very tight match here in the first round of the Delray Beach Open as Spaniard, Pablo Andujar, meets Ivo Karlovic on Thursday, January 7th 2020. Will it be the big serving Karlovic or the skill of Andujar to come through here on Thursday?

Pablo Andujar is looking to maintain the same level of tennis he was playing towards the end of last year in tournaments such as the Antwerp Open. Andujar has been struggling with form for the last couple of years, but he was able to bring out his best towards the end of the year and he showed signs of improvement. Andujar will have surely worked extremely hard over the last couple of months to get his game and his body ready for the tough season ahead, and we will see on Thursday how strong he will be playing. Andujar knows he will have to use all of his skills on Thursday if he is to compete with Karlovic.

Ivo Karlovic is the best server of all time and that is the main factor which is still allowing him to compete in these smaller tournaments even if he is over 40 years old. Karlovic can push any opponent off the court if his first serve is firing, and he will always be a threat to anyone on the court as his power and accuracy behind that shot is unreplicable in the tennis world. Karlovic loves playing on hard courts and he will surely be a threat to anyone in this tournament.

This is going to be the second meeting between both players, with Pablo Andujar leading the head to head 1-0. I believe that Karlovic will fair very well in this match as he has such an incredible serve, and it will be tough for Andujar to utilise all the necessary skills to counter that serve in his first match of the year. Andujar will improve this year and have some positive results, but I think Karlovic will get the better of him in this first round encounter and progress further in the tournament.
