Honestly that ranks as one of the worst matches I have viewed this year, although that is mostly down to Darcis...he played like trash today. And Ancic's "moaning" after most shots = His grunting is almost as cringeworthy as the King's.

darcis troubled mario on serve in the 1st set, had some good break chances but always looked vulnrable on serve.

Still not sure what darcis best surface is.

Yeah that's a good point. He did very well to win the title in Memphis, but he had a close encounter(s) early on which would have changed things quite significantly had he lost...and, off the top of my head, he has done little to back up that run ever since. I'd think clay is still his better surface.

I didn't think it was that bad a match. Mario's forehand looked more powerful than I ever remember seeing it. Darcis has some decent shots for the surface and did well to create so many chances on the Ancic serve but he had no gameplan out there whatsoever.

Agreed.

What a poor mug Darcis is on grass.

I was looking forward to a Gasquet/Ancic final but it looks like only one of them will make it. :rolleyes; Win your 3rd title here Mario.
