Ljubicic started the year so strongly that I estimated in earlier posts that he would finish the year in the top 8. Now, a couple of months later, he is being kicked out extremely early in tournaments by players he should be able to defeat. Have I given his game too much credit? Or is he a head case? Why isn't he in the top 8? :confused: :confused: :confused:

See Davis Cup round 1 :) :wavey:
I've never seen fans dwell on one victory more than Ljubicic fans. It must be because he doesn't have many other big wins.

I think Ljubicic will continue to be in the top 10 with his game especially if he can hit his forehand well, and he can probably move up because he doesn't have many points to defend from the Grand Slams.

Well they don't have too many other big important wins to dwell on :shrug:

That was not a big win, that was a expected win, Agassi was old, and Ivan had plenty of game to beat Roddick, as we have seen in the last 2 matchs they played, you can even go back to Indy 2004 or USO 2003.

reason i bring up with americans is- "Croatia has no chance"

Next :drive:

Ljubicic, love him or hate him, has made sensational progress in a year. It will be intriguing to see how he does in slams though.

Mike, I called him an awful player to you before, but you do know I was joking :p

Exactly. Team Croatia were treated like war heroes in their home country for defeating the US team in the first round of DC. :cool: Meanwhile, the USA's loss didn't even register a blip here; a yawn and a shrug. Kind of like a soccer match. :lol:

I'll bet 99.999999% Americans don't know and don't care who Ljubicic is. :lol: :p Tennis is not big here, everyone knows that, but Roddick's Q rating is actually pretty high for a tennis player.

Still, in terms of street recognition, the US is still Agassi/Williams territory here. :cool:

Thats a pretty poor reason to keep bringing it up just because someone makes a negative comment on Ljubicic's game, especially because the person who said that isn't even American. :rolleyes:

Believe it or not Roddick is actually pretty popular. For instance when he hosted Saturday Night Live a few years back it was one of the most popular episodes. I would think that Roddick is a lot more marketable than Ljubicic can ever be.

People know who Roddick is. He's been in a lot of magazines and stuff. But I bet they don't know what his tennis game is like.

Yes i would think that Roddick is more marketable in US, same as Ivan would be in Croatia. :)
