Clay season is coming.
Ivan showed solid form in Indian Wells and Miami (What a great chance that was for another final,he wouldnt beat Djokovic,but he could beat Canas),now we will see how will he do on clay.
He is usually not that good at the beggining,but he gets better till RG.
So,I wish him a solid pre-RG tournaments and I want him to reach at least QF in Monte Carlo(even hoping for more in his living town :D),Rome and Hamburg (please dont do something like last year there :o)
and VERY GOOD LUCK IN RG!HE WILL NEED IT TO DEFEND THOSE DAMN POINTS(that why Im hoping more for a solid show at the masters,so even if he wont defend RG,he will still have some points from those I hope)
AJMO LJUBO!!!!!!!!

very tough, but all his potential opponents til the semis either play great or suck so it's hard to predict

Ivan played pretty well. If he plays like this the whole clay season than he will have a successful one. Also Ljubo and Gonzo took out Knowles and Nestor in doubles and are playing in the QFs tomorrow.

Did anyone else read the article in " vecernji list" about Karlovic calling Ljubo a liar about some money issues at Dusseldorf last year. Thats a shame because Ljubo really helped out Karlovic so much in their younger years.

TFC: I dont know if you are familiar with Ivans and Ivos past but Ivan did everything for Ivo when they were younger because Ljubo was having much better results and was always helping Karlovic. It is very wrong of Karlovic to say anything bad about Ivan now that he has had some good results. If it wasnt for Ivan, Karlovic wouldnt be where he is now.

Another tough draw for Ivan. He has a qualifier 1st match but then its tough. Hopefully he can gain some points in Austria next week and get a decent draw in RG.

An expected defeat to Ferrer. Lets look at the bright side, only 2 more tournaments on clay, after that we can get to see the real Ivan.

Well he may lose points during this clay season but on the upside there are a ton to be picked up for Ljubo for the second half of the year.

He plays better when he plays lot of matches. All he needs is more match practice and he will be right.

I was too late for Gonzalez-Melzer on the M2 court, so I only saw them coming out, signing autographs. I asked someone who would play on that court next and she told me that it was Ivanisevic against Bruguera. I decided to stay and sat down on the left side of the front row.

Guess who came to cheer on Ivanisevic? First it was Zimonjic, and then Ivan who was sitting right next to me.

Later his personal photographer came, took some photos of him and gave him some photos which he had to sign.
They (Ljubo and Zimonjic) were joking around with Ivanisevic (lost in two sets). Ljubicic was also busy checking his sms or whatever on his Palm Pilot/Pocket PC. And yes, I also had a talk with him although I am not too proud about the fact that I didn't know/remember that Bruguera won RG twice. Ivan told me. But I think he also said that the Spaniard had been in the Final 2 more times which is wrong (it's one more time), but maybe I just misunderstood.
Earlier on he also translated into english for me what Ivanisevic had said in croatian at some point of the match.

:yeah: im sure he is not worried about it, with a 7 seed at RG, he might be able to get some pts back, and he is playing next week, which he could win :angel:
but the summer and rest of year will be his time. im expect QF or better at rest of the AMS and same for Wimbledon and USO.

I don't think there were any. :D
I don't remember clearly what it was about, but I think Ivanisevic said after a mistimed shot that he wouldn't make that kind of error on an other court or something.
