Ljubo won't be bothered by high balls on his BH as he's tall, he will dictate the point early with his serve, which Nadal hates. In Madrid it worked quite well after all.
I watched that Madrid finale, Ljubo was destroying Nadal in the first two sets. It's quite unbelieveable that Nadal still managed to win in 5. Ljubo's major choke, I guess.
But clay is different story. I don't expect much - Nadal in 4 or even in 3 sets.
Anyhow, great effort from Ivan, Roland Garros SF...
