Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

51 (23) vs 48 (50).

That shocked me.

Re: Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

It isn't a surprise, Legenda always sucked in GS. IIRC, he only made it to QF twice in his career

Mugrin Chokic is a good player yo

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

How did he ever get to #3?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

Legenda was one of the worst GS players around comparative to his ranking. His RG SF was an absolute joke of a draw as well.

Because he beated everybody everywhere except Federer and Nadal (he was so close to beat them, too).

Re: Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

GS play was never his strong suite.

Mugrin does a good job of making it to the latter stages of slams so he can bend over for the big guns Mugray

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Ljubo lost a SF to Rafa at Roland Garros 2006. Pretty tight match too.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!

Absolutely not true! Ljubo has never been overrated. I am not a fan of the guy but his serve and backhand were top notch!

he was overrated by MTFers because of what he did playing DC. He wasn't that good on tour. He is even called "Legenda"! come on and he is not overrated?

7 of his 10 titles are ATP 250... his higher ranking is inflated as HELL.

Well, your fellow countryman Berlocq is also a kind of legend around here

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
