You make some very good points, but Simon was really bad against Ljubicic
have you ever seen Andreev play on a hc, he had a fluke run at the AO, if Gulbis had any whatsoever braincells he would have never lost that 5 setter;
IMO Ljubo will frustrate him a lot with his serve, this might be Ljubo's last late run in a big tournament;
It's just a thing with Andreev and hardcourts that i don't like, and I am sure Ljubo knows how to play him, he will force Andreev on his bh side as much as possible..
We shall see...
