2-1 Croatia- Ljubicic carried the team in the match, according to DC Radio guys (who were quite funny :lol: )

Ljubicic improves on his own record- 11 straight Live rubber wins in a year

tomorrow he goes for 12-0 and tie JohnyMac for perfact DC year. (3of12 wins for JM were dead rubbers)

Master of volley Hrbaty played a horrible match. He made some shameful errors at net. Hope he can win tomorrow. I want to see it being defibed in fifth match.

The only reason I want Ljubo to win tomorrow is to perhaps see Goran in action one more time. That would be awesome...

isn't it that when you win the doubles in the final you always win the tie that was so for 25 years or so :confused:

Oh really?? I guess you didn´t watch the match, but just as always assumed Mario sucked...
Well then let me tell you something: if it wasn´t for Mario returning brilliantly, as he really did today, they wouldn´t have been able to break Slovakia at all.... I totally respect Ivan and his game, but his returns today pissed me off... He was the reason for me to be scared about losing that match...

Honestly, don´t you have any other opinions to post about, than the one about Mario?? :rolleyes:

:lol: I don't know mate. ;)

But what I do know is that if Croatia lose both singles tomorrow then they are utterly useless. The Cup is theirs to lose.

I agree, it'll be such a shame if they do though.

Great match, loved watching it. Well done Croatia!!! :) I am cheering on Slovakia but just cos they're the underdog! :)

Exactly, Mario did more than half of the job by himself, his volleys and returns were :drool: The way Ivan played in the first set was :tape: and his volleys were awful :o. The only thing that was wrong with Mario's game today was 1st serve percantage

:wavey:

Only three nations have won the Davis Cup after losing the Final doubles rubber since the Challenge Round was abolished in 1972, and there have been only six occasions on which a nation has turned around a 1-2 deficit in the Final. The last time this happened – and the sole occasion since the introduction of the World Group in 1981 – was in 2002, when Russia won both Sunday singles against France.

Ahhhhhhh that would be :hearts: :inlove: :hearts: :inlove: :hearts: :inlove:
I so hope that if it comes to the 5th dead rubber they'll play it to honour Goran. :D
