Re: Puerta beats Ljubicic

Good win Puerta but when will this idiot Ljubicic learn to use his head? No.14 player in the world goes to play a challanger (albeit on home soil) a week prior of the biggest clay court tournament with no real competition (might have as well went to Paris and get some better quality training there).

Re: Puerta beats Ljubicic

well clay is not his strong point, so i'm sure he'll use the additional time on hand to prepare for W

Re: Puerta beats Ljubicic

I don't think he is a loser. He doesn't play well on clay and he simply lost to the best unseeded player in the draw. I'd say he had bad luck with the draw. Others would say there is no such a thing called luck.

Re: Puerta beats Ljubicic

well, considering the other thread, did anyone who saw this match think that Ivan was injured? Was that a factor, even considering how talented Puerta is on this surface?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Puerta beats Ljubicic

no, Ivan was playing quite well during the first 2 sets, it was close, 75 75 for Puerta.

Maybe during the third set, anyway, I dont see a healthy Ivan winning from 2 sets down.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.
