Re: Tightest Matches Drawn In 1st Round Aussie Open 2007

I dont know why some of you think fish-ljubicic will be close. Mardy's serve will be good enough to get him one tight set. Ljubo will win easily in 3, if fish is on then 4.

Re: Tightest Matches Drawn In 1st Round Aussie Open 2007

Fish got bagled by a clay court expert with a weak serve.

says it all really.

Ljubo 3-0.

I don't see Monaco v Mahut being 5 sets...contrast of styles. I'd say a maximum of 4 sets...likely to be 3 straight.

I agree with your prediction but not your reasoning. Ferrer is great at returning and would give virtually anyone a good match. His serve has little to do with it.

Ljubo will probably edge Fish in 3 or 4 sets...1 break in each set will suffice.
