Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

Unrelatd to that, he says "I had 3-0 in the tiebreaker". That is wrong, isn't it? (Page 2)

Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

well i he is one of the big servers. so on fast surfaces he makes more money.
Its his livelyhood. Not an objective opinion.
He is not the fan who watches tennis year in year out.

What he meant was he was down 0-3 but still felt like he had a chance.

Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

Yep, I totally agree, although maybe the court should be outdoor HC, and not carpet.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

I agree in part. There are indeed less tournaments played on carpet surface than there were ten years ago. Of course, not despising the fact that he is overreacting to the subject in some parts of interview, probably because he had just lost a match in a third set tie-break.

Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

Is this the offending paragraph?

Quote:
I would like to go back to Coria's interview yesterday, what he said, the court it's fast. I mean, if you go back to 10 years ago, the players in the Masters Cup were Sampras, Stich, Becker, Ivanisevic, Krajicek, these guys. Now we have French Open indoors. I think they should just shut up and play and be happy because the conditions out there are really slow wherever you go, even in the Wimbledon. A few years back, Hewitt and Nalbandian played Wimbledon final without playing one volley. I think they should just be happy, I mean, the way tennis went. If they find difficulties playing on some court, you know, then it's unfortunate for them. But I think they are really advantaged all year long.
I don't understand this comment.

"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."

Yep!

What Coria and the others have
said makes sense as well.

Yet, it is what it is
and you've got to deal.

I think he is just saying that in many cases if the game is quicker you can chase your serve to the net and volley thereafter. When the game is slower, this is harder to do - so he is pointing to hewitt/nalbandi as the proof that Wimbledon is slower, because there was no way/need to come in after serve

Re: Ljubicic tells Coria and company to shut up

Much has been made about the speed of the court and how it favours servers. Ljubicic has lost his serve once to Coria and 2 times to Federer in his 2 matches. This is a server who this year went over 80 service games without losing serve. Roger Federer has lost serve 3 times to Nalbandian and 3 times to Ljubicic in 2 matches. Today Coria and Nalbandian managed to have 12 service breaks. If this court was as fast as claimed I would have expected fewer service breaks. In fact Ljubicic and Federer seem to be losing serve more than usual.
