Karlovic has only played one match this year prior to facing Pospisil on Tuesday, where he lost to Jiri Vesely 7-6 (10-8) 3-6 2-6 in the first qualifying round of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha.
He was last in action almost a week ago at the Auckland Open, where he went down to a second round loss against his Canadian Davis Cup teammate Denis Shapovalov 4-7 6-7 (2-7). He’d won his previous three singles matches this year.
On the head-to-head record it is Pospisil who leads Karlovic 4-1. The Croatian won the first of those meetings on his favoured grass surface at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in the USA back in 2013.
Pospisil has won all four matches since in straight sets (all the best of three set matches), although four of those eight sets have necessitated tie-breaks.
