Re: Ivan the clay clown to lose in straights to Rafa

Monaco knows how to play on clay and should have finished him off... Rafa will probably finish the job. It's not hard to predict straight sets here, but Ivan might get a set.

My head agrees with you.

My heart wants Rafa to eat some more bananas.

Re: Ivan the clay clown to lose in straights to Rafa

I don't like Ljubo, but some people are sure underestimating him.

NALBANDIAN / SAFIN / FERRERO / MOYA / LUCZAK / DEL POTRO




Berdych - Andreev - Acasuso - Mathieu - Tursunov - Gaudio - Simon



Vliegen * Malisse * Chela * Zabaleta * Gasquet * Calleri * Djokovic * Starace


Retired and not so active players¬

SJENG SCHALKEN [] PAT RAFTER [] THOMAS MUSTER [] GUGA KUERTEN

I don´t think that this wn will be easy for Rafa, but I hope that it is definitely a win.

He will. I cannot see Rafa and Ivan dueling on clay. Too much difference.

I think, that most probably Nadal would win the match against Ljubicic.

This is what I have to say to you-


And for all Ljubo haters-


For player with thas score last 2 years, now SF of RG, and Davis Cup sucsess- you can not stop shit about him, that is so pathetic, but obviously you are so jelous for his results and that is why you can not stop shit about him and you open all this topics against him, that is for sure because you haven`t said anything smart in your first post in this topic, you just wanted to shit a little bit about him... wow someone is so jelous . And I fell sorry for you "haters" because Ljubo don`t seems to be stoping with his good results and looks like he will not get out of TOP5 so soon...

Re: Ivan the clay clown to lose in straights to Rafa

Ivans ranking really doesnt tell me much about his talent. Its the points that oput him up there. Nalbandian and Blake should definately be up there. Theres something about Ivan that i just dont get...Y does he win? If u watch him play a few normal points it wouldnt cross my mind that hes competing with the best players in the world! Im not saying hes a "bad player", in fact, i like him but i dont like him when he faces the best players in the world.
So my prediction-4sets winner-nadal

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

"He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” "Tursunov on Monfils

Re: Ivan the clay clown to lose in straights to Rafa

Amazing prediction. No one else has such spectacular vision about tennis to come with such outstanding final result. Almost as brilliant as your thread about this being the best french open ever
