I swear, if my life depended on someone breaking serve, Ljubo would be 2nd last person on Earth for the job. (behind his compatriot Karlo of course :devil: )

Ljubo had a long night so he was catching up on some sleep and woke up just in time to get the W.

When you serve with the reliability of Ljubicic or Roddick you do not need to be a great returner of serve.

There is at least 20 players in Top 100 that return worse than Ljubicic.

Nice to know top 10 talent Ljubicic is in the top 80 in return of service.;)

Not actually Top 80. There are a lot of great returners in between 100-200 in the rankings.

Ljubo was crap. He was happy that Stefan was also very crappy

Well, what to say, returning obviously isn't Ljubo's strength. ;)

And by the way, noone right in their mind thinks Ljubo is top 10 by talent. He got there by hard work. Just check his ranking history, it took him years of mainly constant but very slow progress to get to top 20. Real talents usually do it much faster (unless they are chokers).
