Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

Very tough match...different Davydenko to the one of 18 months ago. I'd give the slight edge to Ivan I think...purely because of his indoor record. Kolya can hurt him in terms of match-up though.

Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

Koyla has a better baseline game IMO, it depends on how Ljubo serves.

...if Kohlschreiber can hang with Kolya, Ivan can beat him. But otherwise you're right as concerns the better baseliner. If Ivan actually unleashes on the return (ala Blake / Tursunov), rather than just getting it back as he often does, he'd be in a better position imo.

Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

Ljubo was ripping winners from the baseline all week, his FH has been on, he had like 3 or 4 UE from FH side last match. dont have to say anything about the BH or the serve. last 2 matches he's won like 98% of pts on first serve

Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

Ljubicic is favourite for this one, much as I'd like to see Kolya win I don't think so.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

I hope Ljubo and it is very probable if Ljubicic will be serving like today

Re: Who will win: Ljubicic vs Davydenko?

As much of a fan of Davydenko as I am.

I'm going to say Ljubo in 2 tough sets.

... the last of which was nearly 18 months ago. It's a different Nikolai and a different Ivan.
