Ljubo is doing amazing silly errors , that even his wife/girlfriend can't believe it.

If Robredo had played aggresive the break points moving Ljubicic in that long game had surely won this set...I see Ljubo tired but Robredo isn't able to take advantage of this fact :o

Looks like Ivan will go on to win this one setting up a pretty good finals matchup.

Yes, she does seem very nice. There was indeed a point where it was such a silly loss from Ljubicic that all she could do was laugh. I was annoyed at him, but I was laughing too.

my version of it (i origionally had more smilies, but i apparently went over the limit):

ljubicic to serve...

15-0 good serve
30-0 good serve
40-0 ace
40-15 fh misshit after a good return
40-30 another good return, fh long hold ivan!!

40-40 misshit forehand wide
40-AD idiot tried to serve and volley again and got passed
40-40 ace, robredo not happy with the call
AD-40 fh netted (crowd cheering "ljubo, ljubo

That was an incredible key game to the match. Robredo basically set up Ljubicic to be broken, Ljubicic made unbelievable errors on his forehand from halffield and there was a stretch when Ljubicic could not hit any good forehand, he even hit a few forehands into the bottom of net :eek: Also Robredo saw many 2nd serves but didn't play the big points good enough and allowed Ljubicic to escape. Also it was very strange of Robredo that he played in the following much more to Ljubicic's backhand which is the better groundstroke :retard:

I'm predicting that Ljubicic will fall tomorrow against Ferrero. He was already very slow on some occassions today, showed weaknesses, allowed enough break points and I'm expecting Ferrero can be the bit more consistent and clever that Robredo lacked today in some situations.

Ljubicic got very lucky with wrong call during break point in that game. They sayed it was ace, but it was out and Robredo was right.

I sayed to RDucky already that Haas will revenge that loss soon :) I'm already looking forward to Ljubicic's defeat next time, no reason to be bitter anymore. :yeah:

I am only saying what much people in crowd, Robredo, commentators and my own eyes have seen. Ljubicic 1st serve that saved break point was out at sideline and did not touch line.

they said it was ace for statistic because Robredo did not touch it and because it was not called out (but should have called out)

if the umpire does not call out and Robredo not touches ball it is always ace for statistics

it could be one meter out, umpire says the ball was in and Robredo does not touch it
it is always ace for statistics then, but no honest then

The ball hit the line and had a bad bounce, this is the reason why Robredo couldn't hit the ball back in play:D

:lol: If a Ljubo's serve is called out you say that was in, and on the other hand if is called in although TV shows that was out you say that it was in :lol:

I wonder if you watch Ljubo's matches listening at the same time croatian national anthem :o

Keep going with your " nationalist objectivity " mate :rolleyes:

So far I've only seen Ljubicic fans calling the ball IN, so I'm sure that Jogy was right with his comment. The unbiased person Galaxystorm also said it was out. And to be honest, I've never seen Jogy making false coments like that in this forum.

I was happy with Ivan's win because i bet a lot of money on him and besides i'm not a Robredo's fan at all .
Ljubo deserved this victory he played better than Robredo , i'm not saying that it was an unfair victory at all, i was only giving my opinion about a specific ball

That controversial ball maybe was in or out , everybody has his our opinion but the surprising and funny fact is that you also say in that game the umpire stole Ljubicic two aces , then i wonder if there was a conspiracy to defeat Ivan :lol:

If you want to be objective , check all the match counting not only the Ljubo's balls that were incorrecty called out , but also Robredo's balls that were in and were called out ... :wavey:

i was saying exactly that in my post. i think ivan got robbed in that game, some people think robredo got robbed. it breaks even. ivan outplayed him
