the good news is that davydenko has a tough draw. unfortunately, nalbandian doesn't :(

ivan's draw is tough, but it's very doable

Fergie
10-29-2005, 04:47 AM
And Davydenko is injury too ... But the important thing is that Ivan play well :)

Nice win yesterday. http://yelims1.free.fr/Bisous/Bisous11.gif I thought the score could have been tighter than this a lot. :eek:
His biggest obstacle is Tojo in his draw, http://yelims2.free.fr/Demons/Demon48.gif when he beats him,he will surely win in QF :aplot: and probably will face the duck. :cool:

11-02-2005, 08:51 PM
tomorrows match will be hard, but if he wins this, he should be in the SF, anything can happen then, I would love to see him play Roddick ,but Roddick didnt look good today, Dent choked big time, so i think Nalbandian can beat Roddick and Ivan should be Nalbandian again :)

Fergie
11-03-2005, 12:14 AM
With Feña and Nalbandian out now Ivan has the better chances to be in Shangai :)

Good luck tomorrow Ivan :D

Feña is very unlucky. :crying2:
I hope Tursunov will beat Davydenko and of course hope he will kick Tojo's butt tonight. http://yelims5.free.fr/Zik/Musique21.gif This match is tough,but I think Tojo is tired while Ivan had a rest last week.Allez,my last big hope! http://yelims5.free.fr/Zik/Musique48.gif

What about Gaudio? Isn't hi just 1 point behind Ivan? If Ginepri takes him out, then I think Ivan is 99%. It seems that Ivan has to get to the same round or higher then him.

Am I right?

Actually Ivan played so bad today. :smoke: His sevre sucked, :shout: he missed easy shots and esp his fh volley were too short,gave fighter Robredo chances to play passing shots,he looked repressed and tired. :sad: Thank god he woke up at the third set,his baseline was much better! :kiss: Congrats to Ivan! :banana::woohoo::crazy:

Btw he shouted after he won the match. :shout: Seemed he release his pressure. :bigclap: I wanted to do the same :crazy: but my parents were at home at that moment! :p

Ljubicic-Roddick
Can Andy Roddick stop Ivan Ljubicic? The task looks extremely hard, considering the quality of tennis shown by the Croatian this year. In the last few weeks, he has captured two ATP events (Metz and Vienna), and came very close two weeks ago, to adding the ATP Masters Series Madrid to his list of wins. There, he only bowed in the final, 7-6 in the final set, to the world n°2 Rafael Nadal.

For Ljubicic, the key word is confidence. Having worked extremely hard with Italian coach Ricardo Piatti, he is playing as though nothing can happen to him. His huge serve, his physical condition, and the power he can generate on his shots are weapons on which he knows he can rely. Although it is already likely that he has secured a spot for the Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai, he is keen on going all the way in Bercy in order to put all the chances on his side, as well as capturing his first ever ATP Masters Series.

On Friday night, Andy Roddick saved two match points before miraculously escaping defeat against an extremely inspired David Ferrer. Although he dropped his serve for the first time in eight matches (three times!) Roddick’s near-defeat may give him extra energy to try and earn his spot in the final. But he knows the value of his opponent, as Ljubicic won their last encounter, this year, in a thrilling Davis Cup tie

Me too. Is he OK?
I read his statement after SF. He said that although his knee was hurting him, he won. I hope he can win this title and make some damage at YEC.

He also mentioned that he played better because Duck inspires him more then others. :D

Retire Ivan.

My tears can't stop dropping now.Tell me what can he win?Choked at the last game.Yes surely he is sad but being his fan is very painful as well.We suffer a lot,people in GM dislike him,most of my net friends don't support him in this match too.Honestly I worry about him in DC so much.Yes he is the favourite but can he stop choking in big events?Or is he going to be next PHM who led 2 sets and choked to lose the whole match?
