I am the God of hellfire, and I bring you....

Falla! Du-du-duh-da.....

Sorry Ljubo, but it's hard to win a match when you don't have a single breakpoint on your opponent's serve. :shrug:

Doesn't matter, as it is unlikely that he'll be going.

You're damn right he doesn't deserve to make the TMC, he would be brutalised by just about everyone there because he is just a serve at this point, his play at the back has become beyond pathetic. So nervy and tentative and feeble. I have nothing really against him but I don't want him there on the basis of his service action alone. It is a waste of a slot.

From what I've seen, Falla played great and was hitting winners right and left. Ljubicic wasn't that horrible, his serving was good (once he got himself out of triple break point by serving four aces in a row) but ultimately wasn't enough.

Not that there's anything wrong with him....

These last two defeats show that Ljubicic has problems with left-handers, a bit of a surprise given his backhand is his better groundstroke but the angles they can create will be tougher for him to run down at his height, I suppose.

If he had taken that point at 40-0 on Falla's serve in the first set, he would have won in straight sets, no problem. :D

Nice to see Qualie King Falla getting a good run in an ATP event given the effort he puts into qualifying for them all year when he could probably pick up easier points playing challengers.

it was that net cord at 40-15 down on 2nd serve when Ivan was gonna hit a BH winner to get back to 40-30

changed the whole match.

Ljubo's chances of qualifying for Shanghai just took a serious nosedive. He didn't think he did anything other than serve well. Well that's usually good enough indoors against most!

"He definately deserved this win, it was very difficult for me to find a way to play against him", Ljubicic said. "He has the perfect game for this surface and perfect game against me. I really had a lot of difficulties trying to find a way to win points; my serve was good, but it is never enough by itself. Today I wasn't able to do anything than serve."

I like Ljubo, but I think he is done.

I love his serve (reminds me of Ivanisevic) but the rest of his game is :tape: Backhand is average.
Its tough to be in top 20 without a forehand. And I never liked watching him play on the baseline. Such a weird style...

his backhand is good, more than average, and decent volleys but his game has many weakness :o

In their previous match Falla won the first set and reached 4-0 in the second, but then tanked. Fortunately for him, he learned well his lesson.:worship: :worship: :worship:

he has a nice bh, and his fh is really an average shot.

his serve really isn't all that great though. Its too inconsistent. It is not as good as roddick, pim pim etc and not better than goran's serve although its hard to tell because the surfaces have slowed down.

I really do think Ljubicic is basically done now. He will hover round the 20 mark next year but his top 10 and AMS final days are over.

Falla is a good player. My coach knows he's coach and we watched him alot at this Madrid he only lost to Ferrero in the end and playing good tennis - he had chances.
