Ljubicic leads 1-0

This seems tough to predict. Ljubo beats Spadea in a tight three setter, Nadal schools Verdasco 2 and 2. Normally, you'd think Ljubicic would overpower Nadal on hard, but I'm not sure what to think after those two scores.

Nadal is a fighter just like Spadea, but most people might think Spadea is better on hard. I'm not so sure anymore though, Nadal is having some pretty good results this year as well. I wish ESPN would show this, but I already know there's no chance. Unfortunately.

Re: 4th round: Ljubicic vs. Nadal

I think Ivan will win. Oh well

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: 4th round: Ljubicic vs. Nadal

Now that Nalbandian is gone, Ljubicic will choke at the thought of reaching a AMS final and will lose to Nadal in two easy sets. That's how hopeless this tournament is turning out to be


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.

I can definitely see why people would pick Ivan just because of his serve and forehand, and because of the new aura surrounding him. I don't count Nadal out at all though, especially once the points get into baseline rallies. It's a travesty that most tennis fans in America will never see this one.

Rubber Ducky, if you win your bet, and have 30,000 vCash, will you be the vCash leader?

Ivan's backhand is ridicolously good.
