Ljubo and Roddick back at it again

Ljubicic objected to Roddick's suggestion that the court needs to be quicker.

"I think everytime when you lose you have to complain of something," he said. "The court is unusually slow, but because the air is dry in the arena and balls are fairly quick, I think it is a perfect combination. If you put a quicker court in these conditions, it would be absolutely unplayable. If I cannot lose serve in 9 matches it means it is not slow, otherwise I would lose a lot of serves."

Don't think Ljubicic likes Roddick much.

Ljubicic's being silly. Of course Vienna's surface is slow.

Ljubici holding serve for 9 matches in a row certainly does not indicate a slow court. Medium paced would be more accurate.

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.

Please explain why Ljubicic has not lost his serve in the last 8 matches played at this venue?

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

Slow like Madrid.

Watch a match of Kremlin Cup and come back so we can discuss it.

Considering one is carpet and the other one isn't, it would not be an accurate comparison.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Ljubo and Roddick back at it again

Don't you mean Ljubo back at it again? and this is kind of ironic since all ivan does is whine after he loses a match.
Not a fan of Roddick, but the court IS slow and this is kind of getting to be childish.

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

The point is that people usually have no idea, nowadays, of what is a fast surface. Some people think only clay is slow and everything not clay MUST be fast. That's

Re: Ljubo and Roddick back at it again

"I think every time when you lose you have to complain of something".... Ljube, I love you, but I do hope the irony isn't lost on you.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
