Happy for Ferrero, but Ljubo's now lost a load of points, placing him at some lowly ranking which his year so far doesn't deserve.
Was wondering beforehand if that might get to him at a key moment. He knows he can't play lots of low level tennis for points these days, only the big stuff interests him. If he drops down the rankings much, it's going to be very hard to reverse the slide, and retirement possibly beckons.
Too bad I had to follow the match on SB. Looking at the stats, it seems it was a great match from both.
Good luck to Juan Carlos against Kohli in the second round! A repeat of their match in RG 2006 would be great.
