Wimbledon

We're still unsure about him playing there, but the draw is out and he has to play Ancic in the first round. Why does he never get a qualifier????

Re: Wimbledon

If he is 100% fit to play, I wouldn't be too worried, but knowing that he's not, this draw is a nightmare! This is his part of the draw:
(16) J Novak
X Malisse

A Dupuis
T Haas

K Beck
J Marray

J Blake
(20) T Robredo

(25) D Hrbaty
D Sanchez

M Hilton
A Costa

Qualifier
T Berdych

M Ancic
(4) D Nalbandian

Re: Wimbledon

I'm sure he'll give it a go, although I can't see him winning...I said the same thing when he had to play Gasquet in RG, but whatever!

Re: Wimbledon

Yeah, saw that result. That's good for Ancic. I hate to be terribly pessimistic, but this is a nightmare draw for him. I know we said that at FO time, and look what happened....well, we hope he can get through....

Re: Wimbledon

Playing Ancic on grass, and David has an injury, that is far from ideal. Though if David plays and makes it close, Ancic has problems closing out matches.

Re: Wimbledon

Supposedly, Gaudio had the same problem, and look what happened. No one could have predicted THAT result in a million years....

But Ancic won't be winning Wimbledon this year, and at least Gaudio had won tournaments on that surface.

Re: Wimbledon

It's not the whole draw that I don't like, it's just the first match, and his physical condition also worries me...Let's wait and see how he does against Massu tomorrow...

Re: Wimbledon

yes we just have to wait.. hope he will do better in his next match in the exhibtion, winning is not really necessary-but of course it would be nice- but that he can play without pain...
