Congrats to Ljubo, he finally won another title and he must like the indoors in France, it has been a while for him.

Monfils had a good week, but not good enough today against big Ivan.

ivan said that he was very nervous in the first set because he knew he had to win this title. he started off the match by framing two forehands in a row to break his own serve...

I saw it on tv (Paris PremiŤre) and it was 50/50 and could have gone either way in the first set. Monfils had one set point and was the second player who managed to break Ivan this weak...Ljubo can thank GaŽl's holding back his shots and not taking the initiative as he usually does but didn't too much in this tournament until the final...But he has learned a lot from this tournament when you read his reactions. I think he'll work on that.
Then GaŽl completely collapsed physically...
Ljubo at his best would have outplayed GaŽl though, but today he only played well, not more.
I thought it would be one-sided but it wasn't at all and the beginning of the second set isn't showed in the score. GaŽl was more dominated against Hrbaty (Hrbaty won more points than him despite loosing that match...) but he won because of some extra-terrestrial shots on the important points and fighting more...
This final was a great match, the first set had a high level of play and some spectacular points.
I'm really glad Ljubo won a deserved title this year after 5 finals (3 against Federer) and prooving he's definitely one of the best players indoors. Well done Ivan!
This is promissing about GaŽl. I think indoors is his best surface. The only times i saw him play really well was on indoors. He didn't impress me that much on the other surfaces and i saw a lot of his matches but on indoors you can definitely see his potential. Good lessons learned there. He was impressive this week.

Props to Yvan. After so many finals, a title was well deserved. I'm impressed with gael yet, a very good week after so many 1st round loss. And a very good first professional season. He's on his way to be seeded for the Australian open.
