Am i the only one who does not remember this happening?

VIENNA, Austria -- Ivan Ljubicic won his second straight title Sunday, beating Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (5) in the BA-CA Trophy final.

Ljubicic, who had 20 aces, won last week in Metz, France. The 26-year-old Croatian won his fourth career title, capturing two in 2004.

"My matches were short and since I did not drop a set in the entire event, I could give my body time to relax," Ljubicic said. "That was one of the keys in the final."

Using a serve-and-volley approach, Ljubicic broke Ferrero early and took a 5-2 lead.

"I had a great start into the match and taking the first set so quickly gave me confidence," he said.

Both players stayed on serve in the second set until Ljubicic broke the Spaniard late before closing out the set.

Ferrero had a chance to break at 4-4 in the third set, but an unforced error cost him. In the tiebreaker, Ljubicic eased to a 4-1 lead.

He is at his peak now...in a year he may not be...

I hope he makes a Masters final before the end of his career...preferably this year as he is the best indoor player behind Federer...but he won't get to the final this week. That only leaves Paris.

:lol: maybe he would beat him now, but in total, Ljubicic has long way to go until he achieves only 10% of what Henman did in decade of career.
