He has just qualified for shanghai, this is a big achievement, so the disappointment from two T.M.S finals losses will be reduced a bit

It was a fifth set in both, and they were close matches so I'm sure Ivan will bounce back. But Hats are off to young Tomas

Re: will ljubo be able to rebound from this...

Well Ljubo does have the TMC and he is not favoured there to win it, so he will have a big opportunity to put this out of mind and also the Davis Cup to focus on.

He has the capabilities to bounce back and it was harder this time as he was the favourite to win here and not in Madrid. If Croatia can win the Davis Cup, then he will be fine, if not, then it will be difficult.

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".

DC will provide the band-aid for this boo-boo.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Agassi beat him quite convicingly in Rome as well.

Hopefully Ivan gets put in a DC group with Nadal, Coria and Davydenko and finishes the year in the top 5 or 6.

on clay.

there is not to rebound from, Ivan is not disappointed at this at all, would you be disappointed to finish a season with 2wins and 2 finals. and chance to win DC and few matchs in TMC.

Re: will ljubo be able to rebound from this...

I think Ivan s rest up first, then go to Shanghai, and whatever he does there, is icing on the cake. His real priority s be DC Final... and he s try to pound some sense into Mario's little head cos he'll need him to help Croatia win it.

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

No - he'll fly over to the States, move in with Dent, eat crap and grow to over 200lbs. And when he grows man boobs he will be known as Ivan Boobacic on the tour.
