“And Then Life Developed a Damaging Serve.”
Posted by gauloises1 on August 8, 2009
Enhance your life. Check out Ivo Karlovic’s official website.
From the soft-porn background music to the message that comes up saying “loading Ivo!”, this really is pure gold. I know Philipp Kohlschreiber’s website has stood for a long time as the standard for totally ridiculous player websites, but I think Ivo might have edged him. It’s the attention to detail, from the glimmer of light that runs across Ivo’s sunglasses every so often on the homepage, to tantalising personal tidbits (did you know his father was a meteorologist?), and the orgasmic crowd noises that accompany the music. I can’t get enough of this.
What really puts it over the top though is the frankly mystifying “serve with Ivo” game. Now I’ve played this a few times now, and I *cannot* figure out how it works. My best guess is that you randomly click the tennis ball, Ivo serves, then does a hilarious mime while the game tells you you’re a fucking disaster. What? I didn’t do anything! He served the bloody ball!
Anyway. Go look.
