To Croatards here! :wavey: Or to whoever said Blake was on antibiotics. :D

"Obviously my preparation wasn't great after making the final in Stockholm," said Blake.

"It's a fine line between having lots of confidence and being here longer to get used to the courts and the altitude.

"But I'm not making excuses and Vliegen played a great game. I don't think I could have played the game any differently tactically."

No excuses for 'tards, especially to the most obnoxious Croatian ones... but they were not the only ones who believed this to be an easy job for Ljubo. Just check the poll, most ppl thought it should have been a 2 set victory for him.

I didn't vote, because I had gut feeling Andy might win. He was breaking Federer all over the place in Canada and I thought, if he catched the same rhythm, Ljubo was going down.

But, you should separate 'tardness of fans from the reality of the player. It is not common for Ivan to have 1st serve percentage of under 50% and almost a two digit number of double faults. I don't know what the reason for that was, it might have been just a bad day but also it could have been some sort of mild nausea or whatever. Why do all the haters automatically yell 'excuses! excuses!' the instant they hear something like that? I had pretty nasty stomach ache this morning but I went to work anyway, as it wasn't enough a reason to stay in bed. The same holds true for tennis players. They usually play matches even if they don't feel 100% well - ATP is not WTA, as we all know. It's all part of the game; if you aren't feeling well, it's not your opponent's fault; but it doesn't mean that it must be a total fabrication to serve as a lame excuse. It might just be true - we don't know. I don't know, you don't know. But if Ljubo himself says he wasn't feeling well, I believe him - because I didn't get the impression he had problems telling the truth, no matter what.

I hope all are well again for Paris and Shanghai (those who need to be)

Here is the full article in Croatian.

http://sportnet.hr/index.aspx?page=news&id=318907

Nakon što je iznenađujuće zapeo već na prvoj prepreci turnira iz Masters serije u Madridu od Britanca Murraya, treći tenisač svijeta Ivan Ljubičić zbog zdravstvenih problema mogao bi propustiti i naredni veliki turnir..."Ljubu" je u Madridu shrvala viroza, povišena temperatura i mučnina potjerale su ga s terena u krevet. Od subote još nije trenirao, a vjerojatno će se oporavljati i mirovati sve do kraja ovog tjedna, što će dovesti pod znak pitanja nastup u Parizu, na posljednjem turniru iz Masters serije ove sezone.

"Na prinudnom sam odmoru do subote, uhvatila me alergija na antibiotike koje sam uzeo u Madridu. Nisam se još oporavio pa je Pariz pod upitnikom, ne želim ništa riskirati", izjavio je najbolji hrvatski tenisač.

Eventualno propuštanje Pariza neće puno značiti glede plasmana na Masters u Šangaju, jer je "Ljubo" nastup na završnom turniru već osigurao, može eventualno izgubiti poziciju trećeg igrača svijeta. Ipak, desetak dana bez pravog treninga i iscrpljenost organizma mogli bi mu stvoriti probleme i u Šangaju.

Nadajmo se da će se "Ljubo" ipak maksimalno oporaviti do 12. studenog i početka Mastersa u Šangaju.

Yes, Corretja looked like a ghost and RG was his for the taking that year and he had a bad allergic reaction.

That's the thing, they don't always know what is in all the medications and there might have been just the one ingridient that triggered it.

so he won't be able to defend the Paris Bercy final, right?

only fact is that he won´t play lyon
pariz is obviously now in doubt ( ivan himself said that in the article ), especially in the context that he qualified for masters
as far as i understand, withdrawing from shanghai is not even an issue right now

Doesn't Berdych have to defend Paris?sure.. but defending points from 2005 dont come into it for champiosn race points in 2006, Berdy is still a long way from making the top8 anyway.. he'd probably need to win Paris again.

he will probably skip paris, because he dosen´t want to risk shanghai which is the pinnacle of the year for him, and the most important tournament of the season
if he dosen´t play in pariz, he will go to china couple of days earlier than planned

Ivan još nije krenuo s treninzima uoči Masters Cupa u Šangaju. Vratio se u Monte Carlo iz Montecatinija, ali još uvijek mora odmarati. Naime, svaka dva dana vadi krv, analize ne nude dovoljno dobre vijesti da bi se mogao vratiti treninzima. Ivan planira krenuti s laganim radom tek u subotu. Do tada ima pravo samo na odmor.

Ljubičić: Nisam ni blizu treninga

Od poraza protiv Andyja Murraya u Madridu prošlo je 17 dana, a Ivan Ljubičić još je u stanju mirovanja.

- Odmaram se, nisam ni blizu povratka treninzima.

Alarmantna poruka uoči Masters Cupa.

- Ne, neću propustiti Šangaj. Krećem u ponedjeljak, ondje sam u utorak.

Ivanova svakodnevica su laboratorijske pretrage. Pretvorio se u “prisilnog davatelja krvi”.

- U subotu ću napraviti još jedan nalaz. Ako slika bude zadovoljavajuća, počet ću s laganim naporima. No, prije Šangaja sigurno neću moći trenirati punim intenzitetom. Ovo mi je dobra škola. Od sljedeće sezone moram promijeniti neke stvari.

The Race isn't about defending points mate... ;)

He needs to start next season well undoubtedly...and he will be top 8 so his seeding should help him out a little.

I don't expect him to qualify again either...but it would be foolish to expect that as he is an indoor monster and can rack up huge points this time next year...and he is quite good on all other surfaces, and is still a threat on grass.

You aren't in this,are you? He is not sick anymore,understand? Today,his blood analysis are even better than before the Roddick match.He is not fit after 3 weeks off,because he was training only 4 days before the tournamnet.That's all! :o

Ok ok Peace::: i like ljubo (even if I prefer Mario) I hadn't read that the analysis were ok... I am happy for ivan even if you don't believe me!! i know that mario don't want that ivan withdraw i am not stupid!
Mario will be in Shangai next year in the official list and there will be no problem!!!
I have nothing against ivan !!! I wanted that mario play, ok, but i know that the others are better this year... but next year Mario will be in shangai! he can do it! he proved it this year!

good luck to ivan against nalbandian I hope he will win he can do it!

back off ljubo
if he were sick , u wouldnt want people to call u a liar & think ur faking it
beside as long as he plays, no one would care.
hope he feels better for his second match
