So that's Andy playing the no1 seed in the first round, this should be interesting.

To be honest, this match is hopeless. There's no way he can beat Ljubicic, but I hope he can and I do believe in him!

But if he did beat him, it would get Andy a lot of attention taking out the top seed, he can do it!

I'm with you on that but some people are going by his recent performances which I'm not sure is so wise as apparently he was experimenting in those matches and that will stop now.

Why are you so sure things have changed since his last matches? I think it's too early in the year to beat another top 20 player...

i dont think much has changed but i dont see any reason why in a new environment he couldnt start playing the way he did last year.now i dont want to be being accused of putting pressure on him thru too many expectations but i just feel ppl are being far too pessimistic.

I'm really trying to be positive in thinking that he tried something new (being more aggressive and some other stuff) and he admitted it didn't work and now he says he will go back to his normal playing style.

I see normal as beating good players Smile


^^ I'm aware that is a very optimistic view.

It's confirmed, Andy will indeed take on Ljubicic in the first round.

Confirmed here (Josh posted the link in the other thread): http://www.atptennis.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/posting/2006/2276/MDS.pdf

C'mon Andy!!!  =D>

I usually have a lack of optimism when it comes to matches like these  no  (a youngster vs a well known man who's never really made it BIG but had the experience..)
But I think Andy has a chance.. and if im being honest - Baghdatis was the one that's made me look at these sorts of matches at different angle.
Im sure Andy's capable of exactly the same thing that Baghdatis has done in the AO.. well ok, Andy isn't exactly going to be playing Federer - but considering Ljubicic's form.. it's going to be an interesting one!!! w00t
