There goes another chance for Ljubo...

... To get past the first couple of rounds in Grand Slams... He lost again, 6-4 6-4 6-4 to Jürgen Melzer. Does anyone have a theory on the fact that Ljubicic cannot get far in a Grand Slam tournament?

Back injury, since before French Open.

Yeah, but even before that he didn't ever reach beyond third round... Even though he has the potential. Especially on hc, ra and grass.

Though im not happy Ljubo lost but this gives him a chance to rest and i expect him to be the player he was earlier this year when the summer hardcourt seasons starts and do well at the Us open and then it will be his favorite surface the indoor carpet season where he will have his best results so its not that bad for Ljubo man.

ivan is a choker and he has mental problems when facing lefties. he himself has said that he hates playing them and that he feels he can't beet them.

And Llodra is doing well. Maybe he should get into Llodra's locker now?

The past few months he has really been struggling, i wonder if he burnt himself out :shrug: from the beginning of the year.

he is not good on grass, THE USOPEN is the best grand slam for his game.

It´s how hype works, early in the year Ljubicic was best player in the world after Federer, and now he´s a mug. Wait and see for threads claiming him as a top 5 material when summer hard courts and later indoor season come.

Give Ljubicic a break, you will be able to say the same thing to Nadal as well

Of course not... This thread is about why Ljubo cannot play well at Grand Slam tournaments... And you can't say Nadal can't play well at GS... At least there's one where he's played pretty well!

ah.. problem is not in the surface or form, he was in good form at AO, and he likes that surface also, but he managed to lost in first round there also :(

well, karlovic was def. in five, and not easy, in three. :devil:

no, i wont be kissing anyone's ass, as i dont have same problem as you do.
and btw, i like ljubicic, and he's great player, but he choke every time at GS, that's a fact and even you (ljubo's ass kisser) cant denied that.

also.. i hate to se any croatian player to lose, but i like to see when guy's like you have to eat their words.

Jurgen :banana:

Ivan clearly doesn't have what it takes to be a grand slam champion. He should stick to challengers. :)
