TFC dont freak out.
I know Ivan should probably have like 4 titles this year and like 45-10 record, but it could be worse, he could have folded vs Monfils last week. clay and grass have never been Ivan best surface, 5-4on clay and 8-2 on grass

with Blake and gonzo and Haas(monday to Fed) losing, hopefully Youzhny will lose to soon, ivan will again stay with 50-75 pts of top 10
and he will stay at #7 in the race.
Im not worried at all for rest of the season, this has been a pattern for past 2 years, Ivan will come back during 2nd half and probably pick up 200+race pts.

Well,I mosty agree with you on this,it's true Ivan has a very good grass season,look at the past,and he won a title now!
Yes,Ivan could easily have 10 titles in career now :(
Baggy in Zagreb (I watched that :sad:),and Youzhny in Rotterdam were winnable matches,but I wont complain about the past now.

I am actually very satisfied with the grass season,but only that loss yesterday made me very mad on Ivan.
Especially those wasted chances in the fourth...
But ok,that's a finished story now,I am looking forward for the HC and Indoor season,and I hope Ivan will have great second half as you said,and will play his best again on his favourite surface.
But he will play in Umag first :tape:

Or start playing his best tennis again.But that is very unlikely.

Look where was Croatian tennis 2 years ago and where is now :help:

Things are looking good for this week. Ivan has a good draw in Lyon and all the other TMc contenders need to make it far in their tournaments to get points and they have tough draws to get there. For instance Blake needs to make the final to get any decent points and he would have to beat Federer to get there. Also Berdych needs to make semis and he has to most likely beat Lopez,Nalby,and Blake to get there and then it would be Federer so no final for him. Robredo and Haas are out. Gasquet can get 10 pts for making semis but there he has to play Roddick.

Nothing is safe with him,don't be happy yet,you will jinx him :o

:haha: But seriously,if he doesnt make semis with this draw (semis would give him 5 race points),playing Ascione and Falla/Marach :haha: then I have no words to describe what an embarrassment that would be :help:

I don't believe in jinxing. If he loses it's because he played worse than his opponent. Not because somebody said something.

:rolleyes: Jinxing is not my point.
My point is that being happy too early about something oftenly resutls in dissappointment.Especially if you are talking about Ivan Ljubicic.

Not that suprised it was close given Ascione has been on a little run highlighted by his challenger tournament win in similar conditions last week

Good job Ljubo now take out Falla. He can be a tricky opponent if he serves well so could be decided by a few points here and there in tiebreaks

I'm really sick of this. I really thought he'll take his chances this time when the draw was opened for him to win this tournament. He dissapoints me again and I really think he doesn't deserve to go to Shanghai. Not this year.

WTF? No, because if I say "I think he can win this tournament :rocker2:" and you had to quote it and say that i'll jinx him and that we should think of Falla next
I know it's match by match, but I said my opinion and that was that Ivan can win this tournament.

And who was right?

If he loses to Jo,I will accept this result.But now...
I guess I can't expect him to play well in Paris and to play in Shanghai.It's ok.I just want him to regroup his form in 2008.

It's really tough to say if he will regroup or not,my opinion is that he won't :awww: but there's always a hope...But he needs to realise first that he is doing something wrong.

Yes he should.He should practise his FH.I don't understand why he can play a good BH but only has average FH.Right now have to say he is the worst Croatian player compared with famous Croatians.2 years ago he was the best,how sad! :sad: In the past he wouldn't lose to players like Koubek and Falla in indoor.I suggest him not to think of the chance to Shanghai,because even if he can make it I'm afraid he will be whitewashed.Just win the match he should win and lose the match he will lose and forget 2007.

Its been a longgggggg year for Ivan and i think a 2 month break is the best possible thing right now. I think 2008 will be a good year for him. For those of you who are Ivan fans and say his is done, you are way overreacting.

Everyone had a long year.And there are lot of players playing better than him at the moment.

Overreacting? Maybe yes,and maybe no.When you see his results in last couple of months,you cant be optimistic.Ivan said he will play till 2012,but if he keeps playing this way and even worse in the next 2 or 3 years I see him retiring before 2010,without any great result anymore :sad:
As a fan of him,I wish he can still play at the highest level.And I think 2008 will be a deciding year.

He will either regain what he had in 2006,or will drop a lot and retire soon.
