Interesting term for Ljubicic who has reached the French Open semi-final and has reached semi-final in Hamburg in his career.
I think by his own admission Ljubicic would admit that clay is his least favourite surface. He is a high ranked player so obviously he should be able to produce results on any surface, and maybe saying he sucked on clay was a little cruel of me
- but he himself names his serve as his best shot, and I remember reading an interview with him once where he said he didn't feel "comfortable" on court if his serve wasn't working properly....... So as clay tends to negate the power of the serve I would be very surprised if he would think of himself as someone who excelled on clay - and he certainly wouldn't choose clay over a hard court surface if given the choice of two tournaments to play in the same week. And I don't blame him for it - he must do what's best for his career and where the money and the points are likely to be better for him.
