Easy for Legenda; up an early break, Sergiy breaks back for 5-5 1st set, crushing breaker from Ljubo, and Stakhovsky was left without a chance in the 2nd set, pure demolition...

Ajde Ljubo........... :worship:

It seems that Ljubicic can only play on fast courts these days. But good to see.

Hope legenda won't lost to Simon or Paire....like he lost to Dodig in Zagreb !!

Good win over a dangerous opponent for Ljubo. Every win for him counts as his Dubai/IW points are coming up in a hurry. Pretty good return stats for Ljubo. These courts should suit his game, I see him potentially going deep here.

Ick yeah, Ljubo is gonna plummet after IW.

As of right now, if he lost R1 in both Dubai and IW, he would be somewhere in the +/- 50 range. I think he'll eventually land somewhere around 30-35th. He got hurt after IW and missed time and struggled for stretches afterward so I think he'll be fine eventually, rankings wise. I also think he's going to have good weeks this week and next week in Marseille to ease his fall.

Too big legenda

i'm expecting ljubo to defend a good chunk of the IW points..those courts are perfect for his game
hopefully he can make a good run in miami too this year (i was at his match when he got hurt last year :sad: )
