In the third set Simon was simply glorious. Masterclass of variety and precision flat hitting. If he meets Nadal playing like that, he'll win easily.
i donn't know which game did you watch but:
1. in tie break ancic didn't any first serve
2.ancic had more errors than simon
3.simon should loose 3rd set easily
simon played very good(not the best he can),but like simon played today ancic in top form would win against him.
