Ljubicic d. Mathieu 7-5 6-7(1) 6-0

Mathieu chokes way set one after leading 5-4 (40-15), plays pretty well in second including well in tie break, then checks out mentally in set three. Solid from Ivan but Almagro should be able to take him in second round.

Mathieu’s mental midgetry was on full display serving for the 1st set -- a double fault and a netted forehand to piss it away. He recovered nicely in the 2nd, but as expected, his fitness failed him in the decider.

Watching Ljuby in the twilight of his career is a real pleasure . His forehand is poetry in motion .

Legenda got the crowd behind him in that 3rd set... All 6 of them were really enjoying the match.

Why are we having two threads of this match when we all know that Ljubicic in his fifties will still be able to beat these choking mugs like Mathieu?
