Considering the caliber of opponents Ljubicic has taken out this week, he should be able to win this. But no doubt he'll choke against Roddick, as everyone else seems to do.

Roddick.

He was only going to ever win another master series if he did not have to play Federer, Nadal, Murray or Djokovic and this seems to be the event.

Nadal and Djokovic may be top quality players, but they did not put that quality on the court this week.

Ljubo winning definitely would complete his storied run in this tournament. 3 big wins in a row from behind.

They're still much better scalps than Roddick's wins over Lu, De Bakker, Melzer, and Robredo (and probably Soderling, too).

If A-Rod wins even dominantly, it's obvious he's not going to get any respect from MTF xD absolutely guaranteed that someone's going to shoot themselves.

I keep watching at Roddick's game and his groundies seem to be so forced and trained. There's no fluidity in this game, so to speak. It actually amazes me that he manages to keep his shots on the court with a relatively good degree of consistency. I can tell that there's a lot of work involved trying to compensate for the lack of talent.

There is a swarm of pushers out there who are trying to be the end of tennis with a game so boring no one will turn up to watch the game anymore and no kids will play it in the future.

There is an old man, the Legenda they call him and now he is the only one left to defend the game of tennis from the fate of autodestruction.

I'd be great to see him hold all the hardcourt shields, and I'd also like to see MTF explode in seething rage and bitterness. That's always a plus. :D

Well... BOTH guys deserve it so much, having obliterated all of the top seeds (and mugs, too :angel:) through the course of this tournament. :worship:

Hope Ljuba Truba takes this, but I won't shed a tear when The Duck does.

Hoping for a great match! :yeah:

It's hard to imagine Ljubicic winning this one, even though he has played some of his best tennis in years during this tournament. I'm sure it's weighing on his mind that this is probably his last shot at winning a Masters. It would be a really nice story to see Ivan get this title, but I have a feeling he'll be really nervous and tired. Roddick will be ultra confident and should take it in 2. I doubt Roddick will be as shaky tomorrow as he was today.


The best part, though, will be the Rodtards and Patty Mac declaring "Roddick is back!", "he might win a slam this year!" :lol: In all seriousness, Roddick had one of the easiest draws ever to reach the final 4, then won his SF only because he didn't play as badly as his opponent :lol: If he plays this way at a slam, he'll lose by the 4th round.

The annoying Federinas didn't spit fire when their girly boy had cakewalks. Of course, when he choked 3 match points away, no one else at a tennis forum was allowed to post. Just Federer posts made sense to the Federinas...because they never paid attention to other players!

Ivan shouldn't even be making MS finals regardless of his current rank or when he was :help: top 5 some years back. He lucked out that Djokovic is hitting his shots worse than some girls on the WTA Tour and Nadal still isn't back at 100%.

Roddick has been playing like a clown the entire two weeks and he finds himself in the finals and can put his name on all the big North American titles with a win on Sunday. I just don't see him screwing this up against somebody he knows well and hasn't had a whole lot of trouble with in the past. Should get it done in straights, though some wacked out service games he showed vs Soderling might creep in and force a deciding set.:retard:

Of course. Ivan is very lucky Nadal is no where near 100%. Nadal was only 100% at Roland Garros 2005 to 2008, and whenever he won tournaments. In fact, Nadal probably only needs to be about 80% to beat everybody on tour. He's currently playing at about 25%. Still, semis isn't bad.
