Ljubicic is a very strong server and everybody knows that. In his first match he beat Youzhny who won his last tournament in Kuala Lumpur two days ago. It's always very difficult to play first match at the other tournamet when ypu win previous and Russian, for sure, couldn't recover in just few days.Ljubicic served very well in that match, he fired 15 aces and lost only six points after first service. If he repeats this numbers we will have over in first set.Dolgopolov is a future of ATP but he is not still that good on hard courts. He has a strong service too, and a lot of weapons from backhand and forehand. He hits the ball very strong and can be a very tricky player. Ukrain beat Baghdatis in first round who had a poor performance but now he is going to play against powerfull server and he knows that he must keep his own service games. This surface is very fast and if Ljubicic break him early that's the end beacuse Croatian is very experience player.
It is difficult to predict which player is going to win but I expect one tough match, maybe with one tie break, but, of course, over this margine in first set.
