Re: Indoor Season - Madrid Thread

Ivan is playing a great tennis, even if he is a bit tired sometimes his mentality is the more important ... I'm sure that he will do it something important in Paris too

I’m alive, or better to say half alive – says Ivan after dramatic Madrid final. – I gave my best, all that was left. Although this wasn’t enough this was a dream week. Ion Tiriac congratulated me after the match and said that only Federer and I play so easy and that if I continue like this, all should turn out all right.

- First two sets I played great. In the third, I lost serve when I had game points and failed to convert break points. Instead of 3:2 for me with the serve, it was 4:1 fro Nadal. That turned the match around. Besides, his shots got deeper, he was more and more aggressive, and he had help from the crowd. He didn’t give me as many short shots as in first two sets. Fifth set? I had 2:0 lead. It might have been different if I could’ve taken break before serving. But since I couldn’t, I was quite tired when I served. In the end, one tie break, where I failed to serve a single first serve is all that stood between me and 17th consecutive win and third consecutive title. Before I played Metz, I reserved tickets for Seychelles and now I’m the first reserve for Masters Cup, eighth in the race two weeks before the end of the season. My form is great. I’m satisfied and proud! I’m only sorry that I didn’t make it to Top 10, I still need some ten points. It looks to me as a bad joke. But eighth in the race means a lot. Top 10 on entry is only a matter of weeks not.

Next stop is Lyon.

- I’m tired, but I’ll try to recover

Good morning croat fans

I know you all know that I'm not the biggest Ivan fan but I do like the posters in here and I know you must be sad to see Ivan lose such a close match. Do not fret. Davis Cup glory will be awaiting him shortly, I am sure of it.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

this day in history will forever be noted, Tangy posted in Ljubo's forum


Davis Cup should be an easy win, but upsets do happen, not really worried about Ivan winning his matchs, but Mario, if they lose dubs, and mario has to play the last match
