Benneteau's chances against Ljubo?

I've always though Benneteau was a pretty good player who has underachieved (partly because of injury i believe). He played very well at Stepanek and showed a lot of composure. I think he's certainly a more natural clay courter than Ljubicic and if he doesn't get overawed by the fact that he could be in the semis of his home slam i believe he stands a pretty chance of at least pushing Ljubo a fair bit.

How do others view this contest playing out?

If Benneteau is healthy, he has a chance.. If it is true that he is injured, scrap it..

I doubt Ljubo will ever have an easier grand slam quarter 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.

Ljubicic is by far the better player and should win.

I hope he'll be relieved, knowing he's already exceeded his expectations for this clay season, and beat the shit out of this guy.

Re: Benneteau's chances against Ljubo?

Same as most of his other matches at this tournament...0% Although, Benneteau seems to defy that number, so who knows?

Good luck to Benneteau, but I think Ljub will win in three.
