Yesterday, you formed a winning temporary duo with no one less than Ivan Ljubicic. How did that come about? 


“Just before admissions closed, Richard Krajicek came over to me and told me that I could couple up with Ljubicic because Mario Ancic had withdrawn from the tournament with the flu. As you can imagine, I said ‘yes’ without a moment’s hesitation. It was absolutely great standing on the court with Ivan yesterday, a fantastic experience. What was especially nice about it was that he told me all kinds of things about when he was just starting out on the professional circuit. In that phase of his career, for instance, he had a lot of problems staying physically fit and strong. He gave me some good tips.”

Ljubos tips to de bakker

1:Getting stressed out at losing so much leads to major hair loss
2:Keep a name tag on you so people don't get you mixed up with the tournament janitor
3:When you world no.5 pretend that your the 'real no.2', it keeps you in high self esteem.

We said we weren't counting doubles :p

So he's still yet to break a real man's serve in 3 events :rocker2:

de Bakker serve is better than rest of Ivan's QF, so i guess he will have to wait until IW to get a real break :)

ps: there is a girl in my class, she is from Scotland and i asked her if she knew you...she said yes..he is an idiot :lol: ;)
