Textbook choking from Ivan. Great stuff.

What happened in the second set? Legenda was serving for the set or blew some set points?

Ljubo should have taken the match against Baghdatis in straights as well, but choked terribly in that 2nd set TB. Apparently, he did the same thing here (couldn't watch this match, so I'm just guessing), but Providence wasn't around to save his a$$ this time, having already lost the 1st set.

Legenda still has all of the shots, but just like certain other older players (won't mention THE Big Name among them but you probably know who I mean), he has those concentration lapses where suddenly 'nothing' of his game seems to be working anymore. I guess it's part of the Age Factor.

Still a great run for the 31-year old hero!

Congrats on making the final again Jo-Willie.
