No, maybe one day.
He had a quite easy draw in RG and a real all surface player is Nalbandian, Federer or Agassi (not nowadays) who have reached at least SF in all the GS.

Federer needs to make the Semis (ie. play) at the Paris Indoor to make the Semis of every one of those tournaments, plus the TMC. He already has the quarters everywhere...interesting that indoor would the be surface holding him back.

Year end masters indoors reached final.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

How much do you get paid?

"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."

Ljubicic continues to be underated. At year start numerous posters noted his failure in grand slam events. He has now reached 2 quarter finals.

Ljubicic still has to perform on a grass court.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Hidalgo defeated Ferrer, easily.
He had people here kissing his ass during this clay season.
If you want to call this draw an easy one fine, I'm with you, just don't hype these players before they lose to Ljubo.

Re: Ljubicic All Surface player? ;)

he's a very good player but he's not great on clay. Very soft draw to the quarters.

Come on.. Forget about those claycourters who played well in early clay.. That was a clay it is supposed to be.. Now.. This is a very fast clay in Paris. The fastest that I've ever seen.. That's the only reason.. A clay that an ordinary claycourt specialist can't do much on. Where are them? All gone.. Fastcourters like Hewitt, Tursunov, Blake, Ljubicic, Ancic are not beating low-ranked claycourters for nothing.. Conditions.. Blake smacking winners past Almagro on proper clay? Gimme a break..

He did play against clay court specialists but they are mentally weaker, that's why Mónaco didn't win. Their rankings are much lower than Ljubicic's and that might be because of the mental part.


Please admit he had an easy draw.
