Yea, Ljubo deservs better luck in miami with draw, although I think that he can't lose five time in row against Rog so he doesn't need luck if he plays his game

Re: Ljubicic was been the closest player to beat Federer...

I think Ljubicic is more of a threat to beat Fed than Safin. I think it is time Ljubicic starts facing other top players so that he can start to rise in the rankings. If he can play Fed so well, then I think he can handle Hewitt and Safin. We know he can handle Andy. Then, Fed wouldn't be so bored in a final if he is facing Ljubicic.

We'll have to see when the draw comes out. Maybe he can beat them, maybe he can't, but unless he's drawn them we won't know.

I can't wait to see the draw for Miami.

Mardy Fish for president.

Ljubo has demonstrated great results for the entire season and doesn't lose to the Dents of the ATP.

Yeah baby, Cash Money on Ljubo for Miami.

I've found out the hard way betting on Safin vs Kiefer and I'm sitting pretty w/o betting on him at IW.

Re: Ljubicic was been the closest player to beat Federer...

I'm sorry but the title of the thread is not correct. Apart from Safin, the player who's been closer to beat Federer this year (and since the Olympics) has been Ferrero.
Unless it was only referred to Indian Wells, of course.


Favourite players:

Nadal ~ Fish [Fisho] ~ Ferrero [Juancho] ~ Hewitt [Llautó] ~ Nalbandian

Yeah. I think the person was refering to IW. Which would obviously make the statement true.

Hopefully, Ljubo is a BIG name now..Marat will be motivated.
