I think Ljubicic is a deserved favourite going off his indoor stats of recent weeks, but there is a lot of pressure on the croat, and for me james Blake is playing just aswell if not better!!!

Lets look at the two records since the lead up to Us open (Given Ljubcic was playing awful upto the U.S) But since the U.s summer that's when Blake has been making moves!!!

Blake's record 22-4

His four defeats have been against Federer-Roddick-Agassi-Ancic( He should of beat Ancic but i saw that game and Ancic served supurb that night.

Ljubicic's record 16-5

His defeats have been against Spadea-Gasquet-Nadal-Santoro-Dent.

The way Blake played against an in form Rochus was amazing if he played really intensly and gave everything to every ball he could have broke Rochus everytime he served, but he casually wrapped up a very impressive victory.

I think it is worth a shot on Blake, i believe he is playing top 10 tennis at the moment, and if he can take the chances on Ljubicic's second serve i have no doubt he has what it takes to win!!!

Take Blake in Staright sets!!!

Oh my God whata mistake you've done!
Ljubo The KING won 6-3 6-4 without any problems or threats from Blake!
I agree that Blake played superbly against Rochus (I saw that match last night) but Rochus was not himself last night and played terribly.

Ljubicic is really playing the big points well now, prior to before which was his downfall, good luck to him i put him favourite for this event!!
