Post Zagreb 09 - 1R -M.Ancic def L.Lacko 6-4 6-7 7-5

Excellent fight back from Lacko having been a set and a break down, and also saving a match point in the second set tie break, lacko looks a very solid player, however Mario still came through in the end, well done Mario keep it going

Poor Lacko, last year lost in Davis Cup two extreme five-setters, and now this. Had triple BP at 4:4 in the third. Congrats Mario, you've lost so many matches wasting MP, it'd be ridiculous to lose another one against a player like Lacko.

From what I saw Lacko should be ranked higher than he is now. He is 352nd now But only 21 years old, that was a solid Top150 from what I saw today. Nice technically shots with quite a power.

Agree.
I think it would have been amazingly important win for him if he beat Ancic after saving MP. It'd be some form of consolation after those nightmare defeats last year. Maybe the bad habit to lose these equal matches will be preserved

I've mistaken 15 minutes ago Dodig with Skugor in the other thread

What a terrible performance from Mario Ancic, was there till 5/5 in second set then decided to leave and watch Gulbis.
It was a very poor performance from Mario in first two sets, only serving was good!
Good that he won at the end!

You never know which Lacko shows up The guy can be brilliant one day, and in shambles the next. There are few players that I have seen so poorly as Lukas. He is a complete headcase too, which explains why his ranking plummeted so much. Solid is far from a word I'd apply to him, but it seems he kept his composure this match.

Ancic was patehtic, miles away from his best, Lacko has a solid forhand, especially down the line, but his bekhand is awful, the match was boring, Mario should have clinched it in two easy sets, but messed it up, somehow won it in the end, all the injuries have cost him too much....

Lacko had a horrible last year, he took some time out from tennis to think about his career, and obviously it helped. If he plays like this, 150 or even 120 is possible.

Ancic is just a shadow of his former self.
