Ljubicic's 1/8 of a draw atrocius...

Look at this horrendus 1/8 of a draw:
Fish vs Mahut
Fleishman vs Arthurs
Stepanek vs Dlouhy or Gabashvili
T. Johansson or Chiundelli vs Ferrer


I dare you to find a worse 1/8 of a draw in recent memory, if not worse then at least below 100x less interesting than this draw... This is just horrible, as much as I dont care for Ljubicic, too bad he didnt win...

as for this draw, I hope Johansson or Stepanek reach Qf's at least they could make it mildly interesting when they play safin

Huge opportunity for pretty much any of those players to do something bigger than they've ever done...

I guess Stepanek would be the fave?? with Fish a co-fave maybe?

no he is a master choker, he is expected to beat mahut next round so he will probably lose.

Donkey Kong has been improving steadily every week it seems. He might go deep, in more than just Hingis.

Re: Ljubicic's 1/8 of a draw atrocius...

Why is that "atrocious"? It's great that we'll see someone new and different making it to a GS quarterfinal and possibly further. We need some surprises. It'd be much more boring for most people if Ljubicic got through just because of a draw again.

Anyway, go TOJO! Take advantage. Or Mardy!

Fish to make it , I hope so. If he keeps his head cool he has good chance to make it.
So it could be All american QF andy vs Mardy , it sounds fine to me

It's not anymore atrocious than any random GS quarter that's lost its top seed. ITA - it'd be great to see Fish or Ferrer or, hell-why-not Mr. Hingis get to the quarters. zircofiril is just bitter, and perhaps a bit premature in placing Safin in the Qs.

An aside: The most jaw-droppingly bad quarter that I can recall is the one that Patty Schnyder "heads" in this AO ladies draw.

Yeah, waaaay too early to put Safin in the QF, and he knows that.

Although I do think Chakvetadze is in Schnyder's section of the AO, and I'd love to see her get to the QF and give Maria Sharapova a good match. Chakva's been playing great tennis since last fall and has shot up to #12 in the rankings!!!
