Stockholm R1: Mario Ancic (CRO) def Amer Delic (USA) 6-1 6-4

High percentage of points won off first serve as usual, saved all three break points he faced - good first match back, Mario

Delic did really well to earn a break point in the last game too, from 0-40* on Mario's serve to A-40* but couldn't quite pull it off. Better luck next time

wow, Ancic. that's a name I haven't heard in a while. How long has he been out? I know he hasn't played much this year because of injury/illness or something.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Man this match would have been like tennis porn to me - two big men rushing the net.

Anyway, good to see Mario get a win and not surprised by this result at all. Not sure what is going on with Amer, was really hoping that working with Scott Humphries would help him fix his head and get back on track. Good decision for Amer to come back to the US and try to defend all of his late season Challenger points. It will help him to maintain his direct entry into the AO.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Great to see Mario winning and hopefully he can have a good fall of '07 and if he hits top form he will be dangerous.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
