Friday ends with the score being tied 1-1.
Ivan Ljubicic d. Karol Kucera 6-3 6-4 6-3
Karol Kucera tried his best, but in reality it was not too realistic to expect him to be able to compete against someone like Ljubicic. Karol did make it respectable though. Good try.
Dominik Hrbaty d. Mario Ancic 7-6(4) 6-3 6-7(4) 6-4
Dominik then took on Ancic. Dominik played almost flawless, as he never faced a single break point the entire match. Ancic had 30+ aces, but Dominik still managed to break him a decent amount of times, and took the match in 4 sets. Way to show them what you're made of, Dominik.
