    From the beginning I saw this as a great potential match-up and believe it or not, I actually predicted a win for Acasuso. Ljubicic is definately a talented player but this is clay. Not sure what the score is currently but with the way the match has progressed so far, Acasuso probably has won the match by now. I also like the comment someone posted about Acasuso posing a threat at the French Open. Ever since the FO last year, I've liked Acasuso's chances on the dirt.

    I've been saying that for a whiile now, Acasuso is my underdog this year on clay :D

    He's 6-2, 3-0, with his serve, after breaking 5 times in a row :D

    I was surprised to see that Acasuso was the favorite in this match. Not really that surprised that he is winning...guess the oddsmakers were right.

    I have yet to see this match but this has to be a humilating loss for Ljubicic. Going down like a qualifier. I think Donald Young could have gotten more than 2 games. Ljubicic's minor success at Monte Carlo was probably because he is a local boy and the crowd was behind him. Yes...Ivan maybe getting better on clay but his chances of winning on clay aren't much better than an American. Wouldn't be surprised at all if he lost in the 1st or 2nd round at Roland Garros.

    Wow, he got pummeled. Acasuso is a pretty damn good player in his own right, but here I was thinking that Ljubicic had become a more complete player and could perform on any surface.

    Ljubo just barely overcame Kohlschreiber in the 1st round, so I have really seen this coming. Unfortunately, something's wrong with his mindset lately. He shouldn't play so poorly, not even on clay.

    Ever since the clay season began, Ljubo keeps making up excuses for his losses. He had enough time to adjust by now. I hope he gets his act together soon.
