Berdych def Ljubicic to win TMS Paris

A first TMS for either player, so who will win the final?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Paris Final: Ljubicic or Berdych? Who will win?

I really want Ivan to win but I have a sneaky suspicion Berdych will pull through. Ivan looked so tired at times he will have to be firing on all cylinders and Berdych has a fierce serve and very potent groundstrokes. It will not be easy for Ivan. I really hope he will be up for it.

Re: Paris Final: Ljubicic or Berdych? Who will win?

I watched both matches, Ljubicic looked far more impressive. I think it will be a tough first set and then two easy sets for Ivan.

Something along the lines of 7-5 6-1 6-3

Berdych still has holes in his game and concentration lapses so it wouldn't be difficult for Ljubicic to break him. In all fairness, Ljubicic does deserve his first TMS title.

Ivan leads head to head:
Madrid 2004 Ljubicic-Berdych 6-4 6-4
Indian Wells 2005: Ljubicic-Berdych 6-4 6-1

Re: Paris Final: Ljubicic or Berdych? Who will win?

I think Ljubo will win in 3, but I would prefer Berdych to.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Paris Final: Ljubicic or Berdych? Who will win?

Berdych loves playing the big players, and he has nothing to lose, all the pressure is on Ljubo, he has been the indoor formhorse and he is expected to win.

They are 2-0 in H2H and Ljubo hasn't lot a set. I want Berdych to win, but I can't begrudge a Ljubo victory.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Paris Final: Ljubicic or Berdych? Who will win?

i voted Lbj but it's a tough call. they both want it badly.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
