Yea, Ljubo deservs better luck in miami with draw, although I think that he can't lose five time in row against Rog so he doesn't need luck if he plays his game ;)

I think Ljubicic is more of a threat to beat Fed than Safin. I think it is time Ljubicic starts facing other top players so that he can start to rise in the rankings. If he can play Fed so well, then I think he can handle Hewitt and Safin. We know he can handle Andy. Then, Fed wouldn't be so bored in a final if he is facing Ljubicic.

We'll have to see when the draw comes out. Maybe he can beat them, maybe he can't, but unless he's drawn them we won't know.

I can't wait to see the draw for Miami.

Safin is a headcase who only gets up for the big matches. Most Russians are like that. They cannot put up a solid performance over a long period of time tournament wise. :silly:

Ljubo has demonstrated great results for the entire season and doesn't lose to the Dents of the ATP. :worship:

Yeah baby, Cash Money on Ljubo for Miami. :drive:

I've found out the hard way betting on Safin vs Kiefer and I'm sitting pretty w/o betting on him at IW.

I'm sorry but the title of the thread is not correct. Apart from Safin, the player who's been closer to beat Federer this year (and since the Olympics) has been Ferrero.
Unless it was only referred to Indian Wells, of course.

Yeah. I think the person was refering to IW. Which would obviously make the statement true.

I'm still amazed Ninjesus won the Rotterdam final then the first two matches at Dubai, all where he was so very close to losing. Ferrero with the two MP's too!
