best possible draw imo
novak is old :p
ancic just can't challenge him right now, neither can berdych
coria has no chance on carpet
roddick probably won't even make the semis cause he hates playing in europe
nadal won't make the finals, despite an easy draw

if ivan is fit, he's gonna win this!!

He was clever,he played more volleys on the net in 2nd set becoz Feña hit always powerfully on the baseline,wth Feña had many energies to do that. :crazy: Also he saved bps really well even though he looked tired.Tonight he probably can take revenge on Nalbandian for last loss in Madrid, :boxing: that guy doesn't have serve while Ivan has huge! :aplot: I'm not sure the others,but I think Ivan can use the same tactic against Feña to play against him. :) Ajmo Ivan,make it to the final! :rocker2:

I’m alive, or better to say half alive – says Ivan after dramatic Madrid final. – I gave my best, all that was left. Although this wasn’t enough this was a dream week. Ion Tiriac congratulated me after the match and said that only Federer and I play so easy and that if I continue like this, all should turn out all right.

- First two sets I played great. In the third, I lost serve when I had game points and failed to convert break points. Instead of 3:2 for me with the serve, it was 4:1 fro Nadal. That turned the match around. Besides, his shots got deeper, he was more and more aggressive, and he had help from the crowd. He didn’t give me as many short shots as in first two sets. Fifth set? I had 2:0 lead. It might have been different if I could’ve taken break before serving. But since I couldn’t, I was quite tired when I served. In the end, one tie break, where I failed to serve a single first serve is all that stood between me and 17th consecutive win and third consecutive title. Before I played Metz, I reserved tickets for Seychelles and now I’m the first reserve for Masters Cup, eighth in the race two weeks before the end of the season. My form is great. I’m satisfied and proud! I’m only sorry that I didn’t make it to Top 10, I still need some ten points. It looks to me as a bad joke. But eighth in the race means a lot. Top 10 on entry is only a matter of weeks not.

Next stop is Lyon.

- I’m tired, but I’ll try to recover
:yeah:
