I agree, from what I saw of Henman last night he will have a lot of problems tonight against Ljubicic!!

Also go Horna tonight - I can't believe he isn't favourite after the tennis lesson he gave Ferrero last night!

c'mon ljuby!!!!...odds of $2.35 i got look like an absolute steal at the moment!!


Even Henman would have made lot of money as he was sure that he is outsider in today's game.

Here it is what he said yesterday after defeating costa.

Henman: “I found it not the easiest. It's my first win in Madrid, so it's obviously a good start. It certainly does fly. I think if you don't really commit to your shot and get a good clean strike, then your miss?hits are flying pretty excessively. So I don't think it is the easiest conditions to play in. But I felt that the way that I was serving the majority of the time, that can be in my favor. And if I get forward, it's difficult to hit the passing shots because I think, as I said, it's flying around.”

On playing Ljubicic: “I think I've lost to him the last couple of times. I lost to him in Doha this year, then I lost to him in Rotterdam (last year). I'd probably say it's the best anyone's ever served against me in Rotterdam. This will be conditions that suit him well. He's got a huge, huge serve. I think that emphasizes the point that I have to take care of my serve because there won't be too many opportunities probably.”

Heheheh, yeh it's pretty unbelievable. I thought for sure the Yanks would win today just to keep the torment going for the Sox fans. You watch they will probably go and lose the World Series now that they have got the hard part out of the way!!

What did you think of the Sox bringing in Pedro - I still can't understand why they did that. Now there will be a question mark over whether he can start game 1!

Anyways i wont torment you any longer - who else are you on tonight. Ive got Ljubicic into Horna.

No doubt about both of them !!

Three guys who will make comfortabely into the next round are Haas, Joachim and Agassi.

And Haas and Joachim i think will win very much easily.

i think pedro pitched just so to ensure the yankees were buried....

not sure about the horna v pavel match.....but if i had to choose probably lean towards pavel....tonight i just took ljubicic at the single, didn't want to be too greedy :)

He did, but if anything he played better after it happened! He absolutely destroyed Ferrero last night and Im sure he would have had some physio done and is probably in better shape tonight!

thanks guys!! I just bet my mortgage, my first born daughter, my wife's tits and my gold rolex all on Haas to win!!!!

:p

Henman is disappointing, glad I didn't have a bet on him.

bad gambler I have sympathy for the fans of NY yankees (are you one or did u just bet?) but Red Sox never win so it's nice to see them in with a chance, and coming back from 3-0 down is quite amazing.

...not that I follow baseball.

anybody think Suarez will easily win her match too?

Henman 4-6 6-4 2-4 Ljubicic:
Henman nets an approach shot to go 15-30 down and then throws his racquet down after splaying a forehand wide to give Ljubicic two break points. The Croat needs just one, driving a ball down the line, forcing a volley error from Henman.

Henman 4-6 6-4 2-6 Ljubicic:
Henman begins his service game with a weak volley into the net and things go from bad to worse as another error sees him go 30-40 down. He saves the match point with a brave second serve but has to face another after netting a forehand. Henman then slices a forehand wide and his tournament is over.

pff somehow Ivan served 1st in every set today, far too easy an advantage for a guy who can win his serve games in 1 minute...
but henman still seems to have lost his mind somewhere this season, since roland garros every tournament he has played in he has been total shit, even the US open.

ljubicic has a great one handed backhand, and great return of serve, he is actually, a quite good player on clay, and has a good net game for a baseliner.

he is a complete player.

13:57 STOPPING THE ROT: Dent comes through a tough test, but he never fails to come to the net to serve-volley, his natural game... Haas, who has lost just one David Cup match for Germany, is returning well, but the serving power of Dent proves too consistent... 5-4
