MC R1: Ljubicic def Kuerten 6-1 6-2

Ljubicic 50% on return 4/8 bps
Guga 17% 0/0 bps
thats says it all, also Ljubicic was cracking BH and FH winners all over the court.
sad to see guga go out this way.

There needs to be a clampdown from the mods with posting scores before they finish.

Sad to watch that match.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

The crowd were silent when Ljubicic won a point, got behind Kuerten at any opportunity, but he never gave them much to celebrate unfortunately, he won't be remember as the aging man plagued with injury limping around the court once he retires, but always the energetic, flamboyant character that triumphed at Roland Garros multiple times.

Well I will, anyway.
