Can Ancic Beat Federer?

If they both get there I think he can. Don't know the career head to head, or if they have ever played each other on clay, but I just have a feeling if these two win their 2nd round matches Ancic will pull the upset pretty much letting the tennis world know he's back!

Thoughts on the potential 3rd round matchup?

Not even if Federer breaks one leg.

They played 2 years ago in clay, Fed won in straights.

Today, it's a very dangerous match for Federer and yes, even though Federer should win, of course Ancic "can" beat him...

Soderling is more dangerous than Ancic.

No.

not on clay. there are only 3 players here who can beat Fed on clay:

1. Nadal
2. Djokovic
3. Davytanko---he doesnt really count since his nuts shrink and he usually runs when he sees Fed across the net. if he would just take Fed on and bring the fight to him, he could make it a good contest.

Re: Can Ancic Beat Federer?

But shouldn't the fact that Fed seems more vulnerable recently factor in as well? Hell it's not like Ancic has anything to lose.

At his current level, I would agree.

Re: Can Ancic Beat Federer?

Everyone can beat him on a given day. Though only Nadal is a real threat.

Exactly. He was just too good for the last 4 years, in my opinion... I'm sure some would disagree.

He does count and should they meet at the semis, it might not be just a "good contest" for Federer, he can lose.
