Croatian Ivo Karlovic has the best serve in the world, believes South African tennis player Kevin Anderson – a big-serving player himself.

Karlovic, who towers 6’11”, shattered another record on Friday by firing 45 aces in a three-set match en route a stunning 7-5 6-7 6-3 conquest of sixth-ranked Tomas Berdych of Czech Republic at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle.

With this, the 36-year-old Karlovic added on to his tally of 9499 aces, and stands second to just legendary Goran Ivanisevic (10,183) in the list of all time leading aces.

These numbers seem to have struck Anderson’s eyes. “On sheer numbers in the game, I think I’d have to give it to Ivo,” he told AFP, adding that he considers John Isner, Milos Raonic, and himself as the world’s best servers.

“I think Ivo’s first serve is really good. On a second serve I think Isner is a bit tougher than Ivo.”
