That was such a frustrating match but :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
Just happy he won.
He didnt play well in the second and third,he had some great moments but also some very bad shots.It's definitely not an excuse but Ascione played out of his mind for some period.

Ljubo was very happy at the end :rolls: SHOULD be easier against Falla but who knows.He might as well end up losing but I hope he wins :help:

Unreal, how can a journeyman like Ljubicic play the match of his life to get a lucky win over a talent like Ascione :rolleyes:

we'll get him tomorrow with Falla.

:crazy: What a day!
Ljubo has won 28th match after deciding set tie-break and has equaled for the 2nd time his personal aces record - 34.

Did they show statistics in the end? I :retard: closed the stream immediately after it was over. I had the impression Ascione hit a whole truckload of winners there :eek: and very few UEs :eek: :eek:

Ljubo is the darkhorse in the Shanghai race IMO.

It looks as if it's really quick.. serves are devastating, and one good shot is all but a guaranteed winner.

Too bad Thierry :( He almost made a decisive mini-break at 4-4 in the 3rd set TB, went for a return winner off Ljubo's 2nd serve, but it was long by like a centimetre :o

Falla defeated Haas once, and was up a set and a break against Ljubo if I remember correctly

Yup, there are no easy opponents anymore (unless your name is Roger, or the match is played on clay and your name is Rafael).

Or you are in Bercy and your name is BYE.

lyon courts i think are the fastest of any tournament this year. Ivan is the big favorite to win the title here and be #8th going into Paris. hopefully ivo takes out berdych but if not fed will in the semis and tomas will get 14 pts.

Im not a fan of Ivo but usually i dont mind if he wins eventhough he is a selfish and greedy

I hate these serve only players, he should have lost.

He will certainly pack his bags after the next round.
