Guga leads 3-0 in the fourth now! :eek: Well, after a Great Escape in the first round, he seems to be finding his range in this tournament and could be into the AO third round for the first time ver in a half hour.

I'm in shock. After all these years, the curse is lifted. :eek:

lol Leo you're right.. after all these years, and even in 2001 when he was #1, he had a match point and still lost... but now he did it! He was more careful than usual, waited for his opportunities and he was patient... Ljubicic served a lot of bombs and attacked a lot today, but he made way too much UFES I guess...

well done Guga, keep up the great play:)! GOOOO!!!

A big surprise against a big server like Ljubicic, but then this is a week for firsts; Schalken made it to the third round for the first time too, so anything can happen.

Does anybody have the match numbers?
All I saw at the tournment site was:

Aces: 17 (Ljubicic) X 8 (Guga)
Winners: 76 (Ljubicic) X 31 (Guga)
Unforced errors: 76 (Ljubicic) X ?? (Guga)

I found it very unusual, and I'm asking myself where has Guga's victory come from... :confused:

Statistics don't tell all in tennis matches. You know there is such a thing as winning a point from a forced error. That isn't measured in the ue/winners.


:banana: :aparty:


I am so happy this morning.

I agree they don't tell all. But they're an interesting complement and they help a lot. I'm also happy, but I would like to have a technical analisys of the match.
Anyway, if anybody knows more about it, please, let me know.
Cheers to everyone...
