Troicki should look it to getting some glasses, on one bp Ljubo hit a ace, that was about a 10-15inches in and Troicki almost started a fight with the umpire about it

Troicki could have ended this in straights. He was break up in the second set, but he became too tentative and passive which allowed Ljubo to win that set with his experience. Ivan had a bit of a momentum at th start of the third but he started to make too many errors from both wings, Viktor broke back and in he 4:4 he shifted in higher gear, started to play offensively and immediately broke Ljubicic. Troicki does have more firepower than Ljubicic this days.

Well, I watched only half of the first and whole last set and it seemed that if not the serve - Ljubo would be down in two. 19 aces, 60% of 1st serve and 76% of 1st serve points won is not that bad if you ask me.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Ljubo but he is a turtle.

You are wrong about that one, they repeat that point on TV like 3-4 times. The ball was at least 20 cm out. However, line judges were awful, they made more than a few bad calls, maybe even more on Ljubo's expense. I think hawk eye is pretty much a necessary on this surfaces.

there was a bad baseline call where troicki was right, but the 2nd time ljubo's serve was well inside the service box.

Re: Troicki def Ljubicic 6-4 5-7 6-4

really ? I thought the serve was well in like inches from each line, but in Weird. Maybe the colour of the surface really plays tricks on one's eyes. In Moscow they have hawkeye for Rukort, but well..

Ljubo had his chances, but his game just sucks. Especially his moving on court seems really bad.

What happened to that form from the last few matches and why did he start with that passive play.

He was missing everything after that 3-1 in the third so he took off pace and tried with retrieving. But he was still trying to hit some hard ground-strokes from time to time and that produced all that errors.

No, I get the short change to get back on track when needed, but he played the entire first set like that and started with some aggression only after being broken in the 2nd. It clearly suited Viktor to play like that in the first as he was the one ending on the losing side more.
