Tipsarevic might not be as injured as appears. His opponent is in atrocious form and the betting is the wrong way round.
Janko Tipsarevic and Ivo Karlovic take aim on Court 12 this afternoon. Both come into the match with injury worries. Karlovic has been struggling with a lower back injury but in truth the whole year has been a struggle.
The big serving Croatian has slumped to world number 143 with a record this year of 10wins-14losses. A disappointing defeat at Queen’s to Kevin Anderson was his fourth consecutive first round defeat. He has to be opposed.
Janko Tipsarevic has injury worries of his own but like his tennis, there is an element of dramatics. Having reached the final of Eastbourne he was unhappy to be playing late in the evening on a slippery court. With opponent Andreas Seppi serving for the match, one last stumble was too much and the world number 30 retired injured. Although quite possibly hurt, there was an element of ‘toys out of the pram’ from the fiery Serbian.
If the severity of the injury was overplayed, his form coming into Wimbledon is strong and he should have too much for his opponent.
Wimbledon 2012 is over and that means that Grand Slam tennis is history until Flushing Meadows later this summer. However, it does not mean that the tennis action stops on the ATP and Challenger Tours.
This week there are no less than four tournaments taking place at the ATP 250 level and nine players from inside the top 20 will be in action. The highest ranked player to take to the courts this week is David Ferrer, the world No. 5 as of Monday's update. He will be contesting the ATP Bastad draw in Sweden (red clay) where he is the top seed.
Robin Soderling is the defending champion, but the clay court expert remains on the sidelines with mono. Incidentally, after his ranking points from Bastad 2011 drop Soderling with no longer have any ranking points.
With Soderling's continued absence the only other player in the Bastad draw besides Ferrer that appears to have a serious chance to win is Nicolas Almagro, the tournament's number two seed.
Over in Croatia, ATP Umag will be running this week. That tournament, which is also a red clay event, features a handful of contenders. Fernando Verdasco, Marin Cilic, Alexandr Dolgopolov, Marcel Granollers and Juan Carlos Ferrero appear to be the main contenders in the event. Cilic, a Croat, appears to be playing the best at the moment.
Staying in Europe there is also an event taking place in Germany. ATP Stuttgart, another red clay event, looks as though it is about 4-5 players deep in contenders. Janko Tipsarevic is the top seed but the tournament also features Juan Monaco, Bernard Tomic, Nikolay Davydenko and Tommy Haas.
On the American side of the Atlantic there is a small grass court event taking place. ATP Newport features World No. 10 John Isner, the tournament's defending champion. Isner was a tremendous underachiever at the All England Club this year. It looks like it will be tough to defend his title with Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic, Denis Istomin and Ryan Harrison all seeded in the draw.
Of those players only Istomin saw the second week at Wimbledon so all of the favorites should be fresh for the tournament. Other big names in the draw include Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Querrey.
There are also some notable names in the challenger draws this week. Feliciano Lopez, Santiago Giraldo, and Alejandro Falla will be active in Bogota, Colombia, a tournament with 125 ranking points awarded to the champion.
World No. 349 Thiemo de Bakker continues his efforts to return from injury at a red clay challenger event in Holland. If playing his best the Dutch player should win the event as there is not a lot of proven talent in the draw.
There are also challenger events taking place in both Italy and Romania. The event in Italy has virtually no well-known players while Romania, another red clay event, will feature veteran Victor Hanescu and rising star Javier Marti.

The heavy favorite to win this year’s Wimbledon is none other than seven-time champion Roger Federer. The Swiss Maestro won the Australian Open earlier this year for a record-extending Slam haul of 18. He also swept the prestigious Sunshine Double in the US. He skipped the claycourt season to prep up for his favorite tennis surface. Certainly not to be missed is 10-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal who is also a two-time champion at the All England Club. Defending champion Andy Murray might be overlooked due to less than stellar results this season but should not be underestimated. The same case for Novak Djokovic, while ranked 4th, was bumped to number 2 seed due to better grasscourt results the past two years.
Here are the Wimbledon 2017 Men’s Seedings:  Andy Murray (GBR);  Novak Djokovic (SRB);  Roger Federer (SUI);  Rafael Nadal (ESP);  Stan Wawrinka (SUI);  Milos Raonic (CAN);  Marin Cilic (CRO);  Dominic Thiem (AUT);  Kei Nishikori (JPN);  Alexander Zverev (GER);  Tomas Berdych (CZE);  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA);  Grigor Dimitrov (BUL);  Lucas Pouille (FRA);  Gael Monfils;  Gilles Muller (LUX).

It’s strawberries and cream time again and finally the sun has made an appearance this Summer, just in time for Wimbledon 2012 (“Come on Tim… I mean Andy”). If you’ve been following our blog for some time, you will know we are pretty big sports fans in the SelectSpecs Towers. We’ve even made a few train trips to SW19 ourselves to catch a bit of the tennis in person.
Obviously we’ll be supporting all our British hopefuls, although sadly, just like the football last night a few have already fallen by the wayside 🙁 Hopefully Heather Watson should do well later today in her first round match, and of course Andy Murray will be playing tomorrow – but he has been given a tough draw this year.
Janko Tipsarevic is another player we’ll be watching closely this year. The number 8 seed from Serbia is one of only a handful of players who regularly play in sunglasses. See what we did there?
Tipsarevic has already completed his first round match beating David Nalbandian in straight sets while wearing his trademark Oakley sunglasses. Nalbandian of course recently got himself disqualified from the Aegon Championships Final against Marin Cilic when he kicked an advertising board and injured a line judge.
Oakley Fast Jacket XL Sunglasses
The sunglasses worn by Janko Tipsarevic on court today were these Oakley Fast Jacket XL sunglasses (with the slightly larger lenses) in colour option 915610 – Polished White with Photochromic lenses, ideal for the changing conditions out on court.
The Fast Jacket is Oakley’s top of the line sport performance sunglasses designed for elite athletes. The frame features Oakley’s famous Switchlock technology allowing you to easily switch out the lenses at a moment’s notice should the conditions change.The Incident

What Oakley glasses does Tipsaravich wear when playing indoors or under lights?
Some of his lenses look clear. Are these because they have an anti glare surface?
The glasses Tipsaravich has been wearing look most like the Oakley OX3142 Tumbleweed 0.5 in Polished Black. However they also look a lot like the Infinity GM 229 in Black, as I can’t see an Oakley logo in the images I’ve found.
Do you have a specific image in mind we could try matching if these aren’t what you’re looking for?
As for the lenses, we think it is likely as he needs prescription lenses and for added eye protection on court. An anti-glare coating would also be helpful so it is likely he uses this with a stronger lens material such as Trivex, Polycarbonate or Oakley True Digital lenses.
I hope this helps, please let me know if there’s anything else!
The Indian-Serbian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Janko Tipsarevic were knocked out of the Wimbledon tennis championships, as they lost in straight sets in the first round of the men's doubles on Thursday.
Bhupathi-Tipsarevic went down to Austrian Jurgen Melzer and Swedish Robert Lindstedt 3-6, 3-6, 2-6 in an hour and 15 minutes.
The Austrian-Swedish pair got off to an aggressive start, serving two aces and winning 12 out of 14 first serve points. The pair also broke their opponents twice in both occasions to take the first set 6-3.
The second set saw the Melzer-Lindstedt pair showing off their skills even better than the first set as they won 15 out of 16 first serve points and broke their opponent once in four occasions.
Seven aces served in the set made it difficult for Bhupathi-Tipsarevic to comeback into game. Melzer-Lindstedt took the set 6-3. Bhupathi-Tipsarevic never looked to make a comeback into the match as the pair failed to break their opponent or score crucial points. Melzer-Lindstedt took best advantage and broke their opponents twice in both occasions to take the third set 6-2 and the match and thus enter the second round.
Melzer-Lindstedt next face the Australian pair of Lleyton Hewitt and Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round.
