The big serving Croatian Ivo Karlovic has withdrawn from Wimbledon with a foot injury. Karlovic reached the quarterfinals last year, so he is going to lose a lot of ranking points. Im sure the points are the least of his worries, especially considering with the size of his serve and how good his volleys are, he would have a chance of doing very well.
The 6-foot-10 Karlovic has been bothered for months by an Achilles tendon injury in his right foot and also missed the French Open.
With his withdrawal Thursday, Romania’s Victor Hanescu was elevated one spot in the seedings at No. 32.
