Ljubo: "Pat McEnroe inspired me to win against the US!"

- Na svečanoj večeri u srijedu njihov izbornik Patrick McEnroe je rekao da imaju gorko iskustvo samnom.Rekao je da ću ovoga puta malo teže dobiti tri boda. To mi je prolazilo kroz glavu u petome setu protiv Roddicka, koji je opet poseban motiv.

"A the dinner on wednesday, their captain, Patrick McEnroe, sad that they (the U.S. team) have had a bad experience with me. He said that this time it will be a bit harder to get three points. That's what was going through my head in the 5th set against Roddick (who is also a special motive)"

Odd, why would that fire him up? Patrick's comments, at least the one's posted above seem fine to me. Yes, they did have previous bad experience with him (the last DC loss) and, yes, it should have been tougher with Agassi and Roddick. I don't detect any nastiness in Pat's tone, and he's expected to support his team.

What gives with Ljubo?

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

I guess Ljubo's making a Huge point.

Don't get over confident of yourself & underestimate your opponents.
It backfires often!

Re: Ljubo: "Pat McEnroe inspired me to win against the US!"

I think this might be a case of mistranslation - "bad experience" as said by McEnroe just means "He's beaten us before", but Ljubicic might have interpreted it as meaning that they actually had a bad experience with him personally. Mind you, the comment about it being harder for him this time round would certainly have fired him up.

Interesting and very creative insults designed by tangerine for Ljubicic. It is worth noting that if you pronounce his name in the American style, it does sound rather like an instruction on a porn shoot.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
