It turns out that Ivanisevic was broken only once in the entire tournament:
in the second set against Forget. How can one beat someone who serves
that well on a fast surface? (Yes, I know, Agassi did that at Wimbledon.)
It'll be interesting to see how Ivanisevic does at the ATP Championship
and the Grand Slam Cup. Maybe the other players should contract the
McDonalds in Germany to deliver Goran some hamburgers during those
tournaments. :-) :-)

Lendl beat him pretty easily at Tokyo lately(6-4,6-3?) which is also
at indoor fast surface. I wish I had a chance to watch that match.

Apparently, he didn't eat any Hamburgers lately or Lendl wasn't
there to give out some advices to Forget. :-)
