Race to Shanghai: Ljubo v Nalba

Sorry to start another thread on this but JS didn't include a poll.

There's a lot at stake here. The points earned for reaching the final will put the winner, of this match, in a very good position to challenge Davydenko for the last TMC spot.

Also, both these players have great talent and have shown so much promise but neither has won a Masters Series Shield yet. For different reasons, each deserves an AMS title so it would be great if the winner went on to win the title.

We have the big server against the big returner - a perfect match-up. So, for a neutral like me, it should be a great show.

Ljubicic will try to finish pts early, like vs Ferrero, go for winner almost every shot.

Re: Race to Shanghai: Ljubo v Nalba

I've seen many players perform very well when not 100% physically. Last year, Henman collected some amazing results at RGarros and USOpen when he was having problems. I remember Sampras at Wimbledon 2000 came close to pulling out but hung in there and played some very efficient tennis. Also, he once threw-up at a match at the US Open but still went on to win.

Sometimes an injury can make a player more focused than usual and I think we saw that from Ivan last week in Vienna. A player has less expectation and feels less pressure when injured/tired.

Re: Race to Shanghai: Ljubo v Nalba

I voted for Ljubicic but want David. So hope I'm wrong.

Ljubicic did look tired, but David seems so inconsistent this year.
