I've already read snippets of it, and posted some (where he, obviously, wants Roger to win and get the Career/Roger Slam) :

"It's ridiculous how much time he takes between points," the Croatian fourth seed told reporters after his 6-4 6-2 7-6 defeat by the defending champion.

"I think the umpire should be more aggressive on that. Because they gave him one time violation but it didn't seem to change anything."

"It takes time to realise how to play and to adjust because it's the first left-hander (I've faced) in a while," he said.

"I had to adjust my serve as well. I think in the third set I served much better, much smarter. It does take a little time."

"I would love to see Roger win it. I think everybody will because it would be nice," the Croatian said referring to Federer's bid to become only the third man to hold all four grand slam titles at once.

"He is the best player probably ever in tennis and it would be nice to see him lifting the trophy here."

Here the transcript btw. :D Ivan really lost it. ;)
Day 13 - An interview with Ivan Ljubicic
Friday, June 9, 2006

Q. Did this match go pretty much as you thought it would? Did you think this match developed pretty much the way you thought it would, a test of your shot‑making against his speed and his shot‑making as well?

IVAN LJUBICIC: Well, more or less, it's what I expected, of course, him fighting, running for every ball; when he could, taking control of the point.

Yes, more or less, that was it.

Q. I know you're obviously very disappointed with the end result, but it did look as if you played an outstanding match from the word "go." Is it pretty demoralizing when he's getting everything back?

IVAN LJUBICIC: No, it's not demoralizing, that. Many other things are demoralizing. Not him running around. That's what you have to expect when you're playing against him. It's just that that's his game, you know.

If you go out there and think that he's not gonna get it back, something that you don't expect and you are not in good position.

Q. Was there anything that you were unhappy about with Rafael's play today? You looked a little bit unhappy with things at the end of the match.

IVAN LJUBICIC: Oh, no. I was just disappointed that I lost the match.

Q. You weren't worried about the amount of time he was taking between points?

IVAN LJUBICIC: That's not my issue. That's umpire's problem. I am surprised how much they let him do it, because, you know, they give him one time violation, but didn't seem like change something. I think the umpire should be more aggressive on that because it's ridiculous how much time he takes between points.

Q. He was only warned once.

IVAN LJUBICIC: My feeling is that the umpire does it just that he can say he did it and then, you know, nothing anymore, because it's not like something change after that. He just kept doing what he was doing.

Q. Why do you take so many risk in the tiebreaker at 5‑3 in the second ball?

IVAN LJUBICIC: I felt I can go for it. I made couple. I missed that one. It was bad decision. After we realized that. But if I made it, it would be perfect decision.

Q. After the final in Rome, Roger Federer was complaining that Toni Nadal was coaching his nephew from the player's box. Did you have any experience like that today?

IVAN LJUBICIC: No, not today. I have to say that, I mean, it's too far away, you cannot say. But I had bad experience in Miami when I lost to him. Toni was telling him a lot what to do, yes.

But not today. Today, maybe yes. The stadium is so big, you cannot realize that. In Miami we played on a grandstand, so it's so small you can actually hear everything.

Q. Do you feel that you were at your maximum in the first two sets, because you play much more better in the third?

IVAN LJUBICIC: Well, you know, it takes time actually to realize how to play first and, second, to adjust also because it's the first lefty in a while for me. And also, you know, I have to adjust my serve as well. I think in the third set I served much better, much smarter and everything. It does take a little time.

I think I had chances in the first actually when I broke him back, and I had chances maybe to rebreak him again to get to 4‑All or maybe 5‑All. Unfortunately, I didn't make it. But second set was clear for him. And the third set, I played good set but unfortunately didn't make my chances.

Q. Do you have an opinion about what may happen in the final on Sunday, and do you care who wins?

IVAN LJUBICIC: Well, I would love to see Roger win it. I think everybody will because it would be nice. He is the best player probably ever in tennis and it would be, I think, nice to see him lifting the trophy here.

Look what Rafa said in response...he basically said..."Shhutt up biatch, ya got beat!"

Q. Ljubicic said that it's ridiculous the amount of time you take in between points and that the umpire only warned you once because he had to do something. But then he let you do that, and he would love Federer to win and that everybody wants Federer to win.

RAFAEL NADAL: Is that what he said, that everybody wants Federer to win? Well, great. Great. That's not a problem, you know. Everybody is free to say whatever they want. They'll make friends in the course.

No, I know that everybody does not want Federer to win. I know that. You've got to learn to control yourself when you lose a match, not after you lose a match you can just go about saying anything. I get on well with Ljubicic. I don't want to lose that good relationship with him. I don't think that will be the case.

The journalist certainly edited what Ivan said and changed it for the purpose of generating controversy.

Without bad things, fights, controversies, plane crashes, car accidents, murders, whatever, journalists would not be needed. if everything was fine, we wouldn't really need someone to tell us every day that all the planes landed and that everyone was getting along.

They have to keep themselves in business, y'know? ;)

It was a stupid post, even ignoring the broken English. But given that the poster who wrote it is clearly <12 years old, he's forgiven.

doh, ljubo basicly didnt say anything wrong. he said he THINKS everyone will cheer for federer cuz he's in HIS MIND best player ever, and that he would like to se fed win in all four major's. so no, he didnt say anything against nadal, except for the time taken in between points, (for what nadal didnt said anything in his defence). and by the way, its verry poor from newsreporters to take out of context few ljubicic words and put it in front of nadal like that. all you haters should just calm down..

So true. That was really unethical in my opinion.
