It was a good match. Conditions are very slow. Slow court + cold weather almost made it like watching a match on clay. Ivan saved himself with a very good fh pass at 5-5 15-30 in the 3rd. Let a double mini break slip away in the TB but thankfully still won.

Anyway, a very entertaining match in front of nearly empty stands. :(

It's a new court as well and very heavy conditions, but it was worth watching.

As I said before this match could have been the final, but could haves don't cut it.

That's nice to hear, I just wasn't certain if you were perhaps being sarcastic. :devil:
You are so natural at that, so I couldn't tell.

The commentator was so enthusiastic, but he kept calling Ljubo = Ljubovic. I am disappointed that he didn't call Baghdatis, Baghdatinho.

In my opinion, the commentator was being too enthusiastic about this match.

I thought the first set was pretty forgettable for the most part (I guess you could say of decent quality and nothing more?) and Ljubicic was poor in the first half of the second set. It picked up from then onwards though and there was some good tennis from both players especially in the tie-break where there were some superb rallies.

Apemant
09-14-2007, 01:12 PM
I don't understand Ljubo... when he's playing aggressively he wins most of the points. Getting passed here and there shouldn't discourage you if you are working your way through anyway. And yet, he often switches to an abysmal defensive game, sitting 176 meters behind the baseline pretending he's a Nadal (which he most certainly isn't) - and mainly so in crucial moments. And in Grand Slams. :devil: How else to explain his loss to Chela in USO? Granted, Chela did pull out some nice winners in that match, something that probably surprised Ljubo a bit, but still. Chela in 5 sets? It's almost as bad as losing to Blake in 5 sets. :mad: :( :devil:

i hear Ljubo had a nice FH winner at 5-5 *15-30 in the 3rd.

09-14-2007, 01:20 PM
I guess naturally Ljubicic has a defensive mindset and he feels more comfortable playing that way and probably has to force himself to play aggressively which is hard to do if he is lacking in confidence. Similar sort of thing with Roddick I guess, who knows he has to play aggressively but doesn't always do it.

I guess his forehand winners are so rare that when it occurs it warrants a post about it.

croat123
09-14-2007, 01:58 PM
that's a very good point. i think he plays his best tennis when he is being agressive. however, he clearly doesn't feel comfortable being agressive all (or even most of) the time :(
but this win will hopefully push him to some success in the last part of the year

Tennis will only benefit when Trubicic falls out of top 20... then top 30... etc. Of course, it would be best if he quit as of tomorrow :) but we're patient enough for nature to take its course :)

Whoever thinks tennis can't be ugly or boring, should watch Trubek to get disillusioned :)
