Amazing comeback.. Ljubicic def Nalbandian 2-6 6-4 6-2

the man has heart.

Ljubicic for 6th time this year, drops the first set and wins.
5-2 vs David now and 4 straight

Ljubicic took a huge risk in the first...took at injury TO and had trainer out 2 more times...that was plently of time to get Nalbandian thinking about food. it worked...big reward for big risk taker

Match of two halves. Ljubicic was struggling and David was great, then Ljubicic was great and Nalbandian was crap.

Ljubicic was returning really well off his backhand in that final set. Hitting return winners over and over.

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

Good comeback, QF points from last year defended and he does have a reasonable chance against, presumably, Roddick in the next round. He's not going out of the Top 10 without a fight.

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.

Congrats to Ljubo

Now, WTF Nalby? You just went out! And you even didn't look pissed off. Just "Oh, I'm losing". What was that?! At least yesterday he looked annoyed as hell and trowing rackets. Today he did it once I think...

Daveed wanted somthing too eat after the first set so he stoped thinking of the match and thought of a nice large pizza.

Smart Ljubo, threw the first set

All I can say is I watched the whole match, and I'm glad they slowed the courts down at Wimbledon so that a Croat one-trick pony will never win it again, because it's nigh on unwatchable tennis.

David Nalbandian /.\ Marcos Baghdatis /.\ Juan Martin Del Potro /.\ Alejandro Falla /.\ Bernard Tomic /.\ Gustavo Kuerton /.\
/.\Roger Federer /.\

Ljubicic injury fake was a masterstroke. Completely fazed Nalbandian out.

nalbandian played like shit after the first set, his 1st serve % went down and he started missing everything...

Well done Ljubo

But, another typical Dave first destroys the opponent in the first set, and then just goes downhill all the way. Last game he didn't even try to hold serve as if he mentally just gave up.
