Ivo Karlovic and Rafael Nadal

Tennis: Former world number 14 and the tallest player on ATP Tour Ivo Karlovic has said that if he is ever stranded on a deserted island he would choose Rafael Nadal to accompany him as the Spaniard would be able to rescue him from that situation.

The Croatian, who made comeback In Newport ATP event last week after a long health off due to health issues, gave an interview to On the Go Tennis a couple of days back in his typical humorous style. This is a part of that interview,

Q. If you were stranded on an island and could take one player and one thing to help you get off the island, which player would you take and what thing would you bring?

Ivo Karlovic: It would need to be somebody with a lot of connections but if it’s an island, I don’t know. I really don’t know. [laughter]

Q. Some of the players chosen today include Isner…

Ivo Karlovic: Why? Because he is tall and pick coconuts?

Q. And Federer because he has a lot of credit cards….

Ivo Karlovic: But it is island and there are no ATMs! Actually, I would pick Rafa because you know if I would be down he would always be like “Vamos! Vamos!” to pick me up.

Karlovic lost to John Isner in the quarter-final at Newport but he chose the same Nadal to rescue him from the deserted island who has beaten him in all their four meeting on the ATP World Tour.

The 6'1" Spaniard comes just till the shoulder of Karlovic we we compare height of these two players but he might be able to rescue the Croat with the help of his heavily built muscles.
