Born in Zagreb, Croatia in 1979, Ivo Karlovic is known as the tallest player in men’s professional tennis. At 6’ 10” he has as a lofty view of the court, from which he unleashes powerful serves and winning 6 ATP titles. Ivo took up tennis at age six and hit the court at every opportunity. Practicing without the benefit of a coach, the strong-willed Ivo found himself drawn by the energy and precision the game demands. Watching match after match on television, he later found his greatest inspiration in Boris Becker and Goran Ivanašević, a fellow Croat who also has a strong serve. In 2006, life delivered a damaging serve when the quiet giant injured his left knee and found himself out of competition for several months.
