I'd say that the surer matches lie in Roddick, Stepanek and Ginepri.
Perhaps Tursunov is, but Davy seems very ready and motivated for this tournament. As for Tojo, with all respect of his serve, Ljubo's service game is a level above and more stable than the Swede's.
I'll take Ljubo's great indoor record this season over Tojo's good form without hesitating. In a close game - should it go to TBs - I also rate Ljubo to be mentally stronger and less tense than Tojo who is known for his sensitive sides.
