Roddick def Ljubicic 7-6, 7-6 (PLEASE MERGE)

Fantastic Match from both Players. It's a pity this wasn't the final. I hope Andy doesn't have a let down for the next match. I'd love to see him win IW.

Easily the best match of the tournament. Both played well but roddick played the tiebreaks just a tad bit better. Congrats, cant see him losing to Nadal.

Andy Roddick defeats Ivan Ljubicic 7-6 (7); 7-6 (8)

Close match, but most importantly sets up the anticapted showdown with Nadal.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Roddick third time in his career won two tie-breaks in a row against Ljubo. Their TB's H2H after this match: 8-4 A-Rod.
He saved one set point in the 1st TB and none in the second (wasted three match points, two on his own serve).

Re: Roddick def Ljubicic 7-6, 7-6

Again Roddick was schooled from the baseline, couldn't hit a volley winner to save his life and Ljubo choked enough at decisive points to lose the match.

Re: Andy def Ljubo 7-6(7) 7-6(8)

Did Ljubicic have a setpoint in the first tiebreak? He didn't in the second, Roddick blew a couple of matchpoints on his own serve and then ironically won it on the return.

I see Voo de Mar supplied the info already.

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.

Re: Andy def Ljubo 7-6(7) 7-6(8)

What a turn-around. Last year, he couldn't win a TB if his life depended on it and now he can't lose them.

That's 5 for 5 in this tournament, so far.

Re: Andy def Ljubo 7-6(7) 7-6(8)

I think Nadal can beat him, the rallies looked like they were both afraid of losing the point instead of them trying to win it.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Well sets points are not a big deal in TBs when the opposite player is serving.
