There goes another chance for Ljubo...

... To get past the first couple of rounds in Grand Slams... He lost again, 6-4 6-4 6-4 to Jürgen Melzer. Does anyone have a theory on the fact that Ljubicic cannot get far in a Grand Slam tournament?

Good luck to ...

Re: There goes another chance for Ljubo...

Yeah, but even before that he didn't ever reach beyond third round... Even though he has the potential. Especially on hc, ra and grass.

Good luck to ...

Re: There goes another chance for Ljubo...

Though im not happy Ljubo lost but this gives him a chance to rest and i expect him to be the player he was earlier this year when the summer hardcourt seasons starts and do well at the Us open and then it will be his favorite surface the indoor carpet season where he will have his best results so its not that bad for Ljubo man.

The excuse was that Melzer was a Wimbledon junior champ

Re: There goes another chance for Ljubo...

ivan is a choker and he has mental problems when facing lefties. he himself has said that he hates playing them and that he feels he can't beet them.

Re: There goes another chance for Ljubo...

And Llodra is doing well. Maybe he should get into Llodra's locker now?

Re: There goes another chance for Ljubo...

The past few months he has really been struggling, i wonder if he burnt himself out from the beginning of the year.
