Good for the game. Ljubo got broken for the first time serving for the match.

Beauty won over the Beast eventually.

Verdasco getting frustrated in the TB.

Tried his best to choke it away, but Verdasco wouldn't let him. :worship:

Aaaaaah, what an awful match, this one really hurt my eyes!

Good for Ivan though, TB king!

Ljubo in his fifties will still be able to beat these choking mugs like Verdasco

Great win for Ljubo and what a match from Nando:lol:

I'm glad Ljubo won it but what an awful match. Every time Verdasco played decent he won the point

Horrendous from Verdasco. Well done Ljubo though.

Verdasco should go look at the draw now. No Fed. No Murray. DelPot and Roddick out.

Funny that it should be this way but the court playing so slow favoured Ljubicic in the end. Verdasco just couldn't shake off the Croat's heavy groudstrokes because his shots were slowing down so much off the ground.

Good for the game in terms of the race to the masters with Verdasco giving the others a slight oppurtunity to catch him if they can post big results.

With so many top players either injured or defeated it is a great chance for the chasing pack to pick up a big title. Also good oppurtunity for Djokovic or Nadal to get back to winning ways at masters events. I think it would be quite funny (and is quite possible) for Nadal to win this after the defeat hype last week.

bravo ljubo

P. S. he is 3rd or 4th active player with wins against top 10.

Did somebody say "Ljubicic's heavy groundstrokes"?

He's been rolling the ball at half the pace he used to for over a year now.

Great that he won and beat his prick.

FlameOn

:lol: I guess the haters need something to celebrate. :shrug: Nando sure hasn't been giving them too many early exits to feed off lately. This is his first early exit since the Cincinatti Masters in August. 3 months ago to the day basically.

A bit of a lapse is forgivable given the great results he's had lately.

He scoops at that thing like a tub of ice-cream. It's one of the ugliest one-handers on tour.

On the contrary, people who started watching tennis two weeks ago believe that every one-handed backhand is a stunning work of art. Naturally it is a more fluid shot than the two-hander, but Ivan's backhand looks atrocious when placed next to Gaudio's, Gasquet's or Kuerten's.

I mentioned nothing of its efficiency, just it's presentation. :)

Which ones don't pale in comparison to those? Hardly makes them atrocious by itself.
Once again, you don't mind the aesthetics of the Nando FH? Me thinks it's the difference in hairstyle and the end result that bugs you the most.

Well, now you're just being mean. :lol: If the bar for "non-repulsive one-hander" is set that high, then I guess mostly all the one-handers in the game today are practically vomit-inducing.;)

Robredo's and GGL's are also nicer in my opinion. Ivan's is more comparable to Lalo's aesthetically.
