Tennis 19-25 September

Re: Tennis 19-25 September Ljubicic + 3.5 games to bt Tsonga @evens local bookie This might seem somewhat bold call, but my reasons are as this: Ljubicic is apparently playing in the form of his life here. He has not been broken even once in his three matches so far (Renavand, Sijsling, Muller), and he is getting better as the tournament progresses (against Muller it was really outstanding performance with 26 aces). He leads H2H 3-2 against Tsonga. This year they met twice, Tsonga lost on clay and won on I-hard 64 76. Ljubicic already won this tournament, knows how to beat Tsonga, and his motivation is high as he can be the first one to win this tournament twice. Tsonga, no doubt, is great player, but yesterday his start against Dolgo was rather shaky. Dolgo got an early break in the 1st set. But Dolgo was making unusually high number of errors and his serve was not working well, so Tsonga got the break back soon, and then broke Dolgo in the last game of the 1st set. The second set was kinda given as a present to Tsonga by the umpire - at Tsonga's serve at 4-4 30:30 Tsonga placed a ball that was called out. Dolgo was there to return, but he stopped play because of the call. The umpire overruled the call and instead of playing a point again he deemed this ball a winner. Dolgo collapsed mentally and lost this game and the next game at his own serve, thus ending as a loser 46 46. Now this is not going to happen again today, and the Alien Egg Head is going to make the life hard for Jo. I won't even be surprised if Ljubicic wins, but I prefer to stay on the safe side today. GL :hope
