Ivan Ljubicic VS Ivan Dodig match analysis

Two Croatians will meet in this tournament and I think Ljubicic will prevail. The two have met twice already and Ljubicic has won both meetings and he also covered the handicap in both. He has much more experience and class than Dodig, who has improved a little bit, but is still worse than Ljubicic. Serve will play a big part, but in rallies, I would fancy Ljubicic to be the better player. He beat Brands really comfortably yesterday, even though many people fancied Brands to push him hard. This shows that he is taking the tournament very seriously and that he wants to win. Ljubicic has lost just one match this year and nobody can blame him too much for falling to Almagro, who is definitely a class above Dodig, who has taken a set off Djokovic (minor lapse of concentration), but lost to Berdych very easily before that. Beating Granollers and Marchenko is not a huge achievement, especially as one of them is not great on fast surfaces and the second never adapted to the playing conditions.
