Good match. Robredo did two terrible forehands mistakes at 4:5 (30-30) in the 2nd and that was crucial.

He hasn't beaten anybody in the top 40 since October and no one from the top 10 since Wimbledon.

Nole tried to choke, but Tommy didn't let him to do this. Djoko always mixes great winners with terrible, TERRIBLE UEs. And I think his game won't be enough for Ljubo/Davy, but he'll add another final to his collection

He hasn't beaten anybody in the top 40 since October and no one from the top 10 since Wimbledon.

the truth is he never played guys like Davy, Blake, Roddick and he had close matches with all the other top 10 players
which eventually he is bound to start winning

He reached three masters finals, one he lost to Federer, no shame
second master final was in Spain against a higher ranked Nadal and still won the first 2 sets
and the third was just a choke final by Ivan because in a other match he beated Berdyh 6-1, 6-2

So he can win Master finals but he just don't know how..He panics in big finals and that cost him the match but he can win t if he was more relaxt

So Ljubicic can win master finals and he learned a lot about his stupid loses against Rafa and Berdyh

I know it pains you that ljubo is playing his worst tennis in years and still having a better year than rafa. Ljubo is looking for his 3rd final this year already, has rafa even made one? Oh and please go ahead and tell us about the Aussie Open but the fact is nadal was better there but Ljubo is still having a better year.

Rafa does not need to play MM tournaments to inflate his ranking. I mean how many tournaments has he actually even played this year. And the AO certainly does count, cos Rafa showed he can turn up for big tournaments, unlike your hero.

Nole hasn't fully developed the killer instinct that's a necessity against the top 10 players. Few lapses here and there could have turned it around.

Still, what a player. Great stuff. Very high level tennis match.

Rafa played 2 MM tournaments this year without making the final then bitched out of Marseille. So if the doesnt need to play them, why did he schedule 3 so early in the year. He got thumped by the XMAN in one MM tourney and in the other he knew he had no chance of breaking the Gucci1 so he threw in the towel. Dont even say he was actually injured because he looked fine the following week in Melbourne only to win a handful of games vs the legendary Gonzo.

Never in doubt.

Nole's form dipped good and bad throughout and Boredo was just waiting for mistakes from him.

One player looked like top ten material and it certainly wasn't Boredo.

The rankings will be rectified in the not too distant future.

:haha: Yeah, you really are clutching at straws with this crap. Ok, Rafa got well beaten by Gonzo, but at least he got in a position to get to the second week to play him. What happened to Ljubicic :lol: Who gives a damn about these crap tournaments, only fans of Ivan Ljubitch, as we all know thats the only thing he'll ever win.

Geez, people on this forum don't give Robredo the credit he deserves. I find it rather ironic that people are complaining about 'Boredo' when the next round is Ljubicic VS Davydenko. (I have nothing against either of these two players, but to me these guys are the boring dudes). I personally find Robredo to be one of the most enthralling players on tour. If you find him boring then thats fine, but as Carlita said, it's becoming boring hearing you all constantly calling him that. Tommy did well to get to the quarters, and was just outplayed by Djokovic, so well done to both players!!!

You are the Serbian version of richie (Gasquet fan). You love the guy when he wins, then it's a disaster when he loses.

I saw the match live in the stadium and witnessed some of Robredo's antics. Childish reactions to missed shots or doubtful linecalls (lying on the ground for a minute, sitting on an linesmen's chair,...). Not saying sorry after winning a point purely because of a lucky touch with the net. Kicking the boarding when leaving the court.
Ironically, later that day I picked up a magazine with Robredo on the cover stating "Robredo: the friendly star".
