Good win Puerta but when will this idiot Ljubicic learn to use his head? No.14 player in the world goes to play a challanger (albeit on home soil) a week prior of the biggest clay court tournament with no real competition (might have as well went to Paris and get some better quality training there).

well clay is not his strong point, so i'm sure he'll use the additional time on hand to prepare for W

clay just isn't his surface, he'll do much better in faster ones :bounce: it was a nice match :yeah:

Ljubicic is looser, he just doesn`t have winner mentallity...for god sake he won just 1 tournament.

I don't think he is a loser. He doesn't play well on clay and he simply lost to the best unseeded player in the draw. I'd say he had bad luck with the draw. Others would say there is no such a thing called luck.

well, considering the other thread, did anyone who saw this match think that Ivan was injured? Was that a factor, even considering how talented Puerta is on this surface?

no, Ivan was playing quite well during the first 2 sets, it was close, 75 75 for Puerta.

Maybe during the third set, anyway, I dont see a healthy Ivan winning from 2 sets down.

Fans can't be critical of someones play. To me a true fan is someone who is more concerned when he loses then when he wins.

Puerta was by far the better player, simple.

I was even for 22 game of 1st 2 sets...Ivan aways loses serve when it matters...Puerta had to chance to break in 2sets untill 5-5..

The seeded position didn't matter in this match. This isn't Ivan's surface and Mariano Puerta is a clay expert and thrives on this surface. Mariano Puerta is an asterisk player because he's such a dangerous floater it's not even funny. He would be seeded if it was based on clay rankings.
