Got to agree with you once again here.Some players just dont suit Ivo at all and he rarely wins against them,if at all.I think Llodra is one of them.

I hope he can beat him in Zagreb,he'll have the crowd cheering for him,well,at least me.

Some Croats in the crowd. Singing "Lijepa li si".

Re: Saturday OOP & Scores

I hate to wish bad on Llodra, but I hope his back really tightens up on him now and he has to serve underhand.

Unfortunately my Croatian is not so good.

Re: Saturday OOP & Scores

Ivo's made his 1st 16 1st serves this set so maybe he can hit 100% in the TB.

Sooner or later Ivo has to string together a few good return points doesn't he?

Re: Saturday OOP & Scores

Ivo's floating slice return just doesn't work against a strong serve and volley. He needs to take some chances and go after a return.

Re: Saturday OOP & Scores

Seems like this set will go into a TB.
