Ivan Ljubicic: Locker Room spokesperson

A couple of years ago he said the whole locker room wanted him to beat Andy. And today, on the BBC: "I would love to see Roger winning," he said. "Everyone in the locker room would."

I've never figured out why it is that the locker room confides in him all the time. Must be that heroic bald pate. Anyhow, if those in the locker room really hate Andy and rafa, maybe they should step out and say it.
Or is "locker room " Ivan's euphemism for the voices in his head?

Maybe because he represents the players union?

Need ideas for a new signature...

Yeah I forgot about that, I dont know if he is talking for majority of players but just like the fans there are some players rooting for Roger while others are rooting for Rafa.

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

Nope, the croat is special....wit his mouth. So he deserves as many threads as he can get for that.

As for the tennis, that's another matter

Re: Ivan Ljubicic: Locker Room spokesperson

I think there are a lot of players pulling for Roger, other for Rafa, and some who just don't give a damn...........

Q. Now that you're leaving the tournament, do you have a favorite? Rafa? Federer?

TOMMY ROBREDO: Listen, I'm going home. I'm going on holiday. I'm going to disconnect. I don't think I'm even going to watch the rest of the tournament.

Re: Ivan Ljubicic: Locker Room spokesperson

THe connection between Andy and Raffa is arrogance I suppose, and the difference is I suppose that Andy at least doesn't hide it

But look how hard time these Nadal fans have accepting the fact that their's hero is an arrogant prick. They can't get used to the fact that the "Nadal is sooo nice" story is over!

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open


Right word in the right moment - a glass of watter in the desert.

Slowly detach your face from Ivan`s posterior.

That's interesting
I thought he said "I think everybody will " which has a distinctly softer tone than "Everyone in the locker room would".
I got it off of the official transcript. Where's this from??

So is Federer for that matter. So was Samparas, even Agassi. Nobody can be that good at anything and not be arrogant. Eeesh.

Besides, I'm no Rafa fan. Look at my name. I think if Federer wins against the man-boy who set the clay court record he'll have proved himself one of the all-time Greats.

I'm tiring of all this "with me or against me" nonsense on this board. Feels like Bush country.

The Beeb.
Interesting difference. Maybe they played it up?

I still despise the way Ivan is such a sore loser.

I agree 100%

I agree with you Lee about the baiting. The press is certainly doing that. Look how one guy phrased a question to Rafa. I thought Nadal handled it pretty well considering who they guy was obviously trying to incite.

Quote:
Q. Ljubicic said that it's ridiculous the amount of time you take in between points and that the umpire only warned you once because he had to do something. But then he let you do that, and he would love Federer to win and that everybody wants Federer to win.

RAFAEL NADAL: Is that what he said, that everybody wants Federer to win? Well, great. Great. That's not a problem, you know. Everybody is free to say whatever they want. They'll make friends in the course.

No, I know that everybody does not want Federer to win. I know that. You've got to learn to control yourself when you lose a match, not after you lose a match you can just go about saying anything. I get on well with Ljubicic. I don't want to lose that good relationship with him. I don't think that will be the case.

I like a lot of players.
