Remember me

Ljubicic vs Rafael Nadal: Rafael continues to hinder me. Maybe it´s jealousy of my relationship with Roger Federer...

The man from Croatia does not hide his words and repeats: ´Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer would never go to dinner together.´

Ivan Ljubicic, finished with his media commitments, returned to Croatia and gave an interview in which he did not mince his words when he talked of Rafa Nadal. He discussed an episode which occurred a few months ago, in which the former number 3 in the world talked about the elections which were held to choose the President of the ATP Board, the role played by Giorgio di Palermo:

"I know that Nadal has not done anything against me to prevent me to play that role. He has never spoken to me directly. He has since resigned from the Council but is continuing to send out his favorites and does so with even more power. I do not know what I did wrong. Perhaps it is because in 2006 I said I wanted Federer to be the winner at Roland Garros. If this is the source of much evil, I do not regret something that I said I'm proud indeed. Or maybe he is annoyed that I have a great friendship with Roger."

Ljubicic dismisses speak of friendship between the Spaniard and the Swiss:

"They all tell stories. They meet a lot, but certainly would never have dinner together, not as friends."
