02-09-2003, 02:41 PM
blake closes out a very close set.... probably helped that he served first in tiebreak. But no doubt who is better once the first serve is out of the equation. Can Ljubicic find any rythym on the serve??? Set 3 coming up/

marra horra
02-09-2003, 02:54 PM
well i shouldn;t have said that... more mental baggage for ivan.... he needs to win in 4 i think. When i consider his grand slam losses they are usually in 5 sets.

ivan serving now - better 1st serve percentage... but he must somehow get consecutive points against james

ivan is pretty inconsistent in this match, but at least it is more about him than james... I hope Ljubicic will have his best year yet on the circuit since goran's shoulder problems look set to have the last say.

some people here thought that winning this match would be all about the serve,,, but NO.. Ivan has hung in well and come out as the slightly better of the 2. More break chances and more chances converted...

5-2... up.. Send Croatia into the QFs for the second year in a row.
