Career h2h is 4-3 Ljubo
Gonzo has been struggling pretty much all week and last few months.
Ivans win over Baggy should give him a lot of confidence.

I think Ljubicic if he has a good serving day,Gonzalez should play a hell of match to beat him kinda like in Cincinnati last year

Which he recently doesn't, so he better be prepared for some rallies with Gonzo, I don't think there will be many cheap points for him. In fact, I expect Gonzo to win more cheap points, much like Baggy today (who had a higher % of winning after 1st serve than Ljubo).

dont be fooled by those %'s. it was only 3 more pts total

If he wins around 50% on 2nd serves on return and 55% of 2nds on serve he should be fine.

Not a fan of both, but this is already in the bag for chrome dome, all he has to do is hit to the WTA backhand of Gonzo's.

2 overrated idiots playing each other in a MM tourny.

Who cares.

Only Grand Slams and Masters matters.

Leave the scraps to these dogs.

I like both these players, but Fena has the edge with me and, I hope, in the match. Good luck to both though, may the best man win :hatoff: Whoever wins, I hope will win the final.

They are more than 25 000 . At least 200 000 chileans have a croatian last name

As for the match , Ljuba Truba sucks well , González sucks well , so I don´t know who`s gonna win and I don´t care

130 000 croats at Chile (1st , 2nd , 3rd generation )

I never heard any "ic" in Chile declared itself a serbian, even the former "Estadio Yugoslavo" (Yugoslavian stadium) is now "Estadio Croata" (Croat Stadium) and many former Yugoslavian Fire Stations are now Croat.
