AO R1: Lacko def. Ljubicic 3-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-4

Sadly, it was predictable. Ljubo didn't play since November and obviously wasn't ready for a 5-setter. Too bad he lost in this choking fashion, he had a break in the third set, at *2-1 I think.
Congrats to Lacko and hopefully he can bagel Nadal again

Nadal's next couple rounds look even more boring to watch.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Good news for Nadal and good news for Lacko. I was pissed off when it was 3:6,4:6,1:2 with broken serve. Donald Young in 2nd round in playable matchup.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Curse of being in Nadal's part of draw . Even Legenda can't handle that

Legenda

Suicide tennis pick. Was thinking as he broke in the third how glad I decided not to go with Dolgopolov who was at the time two sets down to Greg Jones. What an idiot I am.

Wow, good job by Lukas... 2 sets and a break down against Ljubicic and still able to come back quite comfortably. Talking about top 50 potential, that´s for sure. He rolled through the qualies without losing a single service game and now this win! 27 aces for Lukas and great result, probably his best achievement of his career. Donald Young is next, that´s completely different style of course, but Lacko could and should win also this one. Grats!

ISn't Isner part of Nadulls draw? Yeah Nadull isn't getting past Big John.
