WWW: Gael "Black Panther" Monfils VS Ivan "The Terrible" Ljubicic

In my opinion (and going against odds) Gael whithout any kind of doubt. Davy´s match doesn´t make me change my thinking about Ljubo.

Re: WWW: Gael "Black Panther" Monfils VS Ivan "The Terrible" Ljubicic

H2h is 4-1 for Ljubo

5/2007 ATP 's-Hertogenbosch (NED) Grass Ivan Ljubicic 3-6 6-3 6-0 First
24/2006 ATP London (GBR) Grass Gael Monfils 7-6(11) 7-5 Third
10/2006 ATP Indian Wells (USA) Hard Ivan Ljubicic 6-3 6-2 Third
2/2006 ATP Kooyong (AUS) Hard Ivan Ljubicic 6-3 6-1 First
40/2005 ATP Metz (FRA) I_Hard Ivan Ljubicic 7-6(7) 6-0 Final

They never played on clay, but if GAel is going to stay 65 meteres behind the baseline there is no way he is going to break Ivan's serve, and i am sure that Ljubo will get and of course use his chances...

Ljubo IMO easily now to the semis, Radek is going to defeat Ferrer, and then lose to Ljubo...

Kooyong doesn't count, it's an exhibition.

Re: WWW: Gael "Black Panther" Monfils VS Ivan "The Terrible" Ljubicic

Im thinking about place a bankroll on ljubicic over monfils @ 1.70 tomorrow.
I just cant see monfils winning another long match and how should he break ivans serve if he will again staying 50 meters behind the baselines.

What do you think about this wager?

This will be a dire match between two pushers. They should both just go for aces on every single serve.

That said Monfils will prevail.

Monfils was very relaxed at the end of the last match. I don't see fitness playing a role in this match. He also mentioned that he is far less tired compared to last year, I think monfils will win and I would like to see a monfils/federer sf. Hopefully stepanek takes out ferrer,

If Ljubo serves good Monfils wont be able to win a set...Monfils is a hit or miss player. if he comes out cold it will be a short day for him.

If Monfils can play that match without many unforced errors he may reach 1/4 finals.

Great performance by the French players with Monfils, Chardy, Llodra and Benneteau in 4th round. Well done!
