Ljubicic has been around a long time. This was his twelfth Roland Garros main draw. He has served notice that he's still got plenty of fight left. Indeed, he won his first Masters 1000 event just last year at Indian Wells. He looked despondent today but there's no shame in losing to Nadal in Paris.
