Ancic was so lost without his 1st serve today , very slim chances for him to take the title tomorrow.

Auuuu those two really made quite a drama out of the match. Mario was up a break in all sets and ended up down a break 3-5 with Jan serving for the win. Pre-mono Mario would had clinch this something like 6-1 6-2. He was a top 5 material before that.
Kudos to Hernych, at first glance he doesn't posses any huge weapons and he might seems like a guy who has nothing to hurt his opponents with, but he is like a pest, never let go, very persistent and very consistent at every point.

P.S And once again: RuKort with no hawk eye - bad bad bad decision.

Mario came back from ahead in this match.
He's going to have to play 200% better to have a chance against Cilic, but good for him for gutting this one out anyway.

Good thing Ancic won. Otherwise it would have been awful to lose a point out of a bad call, at such a critical moment!

SMH @ Hernych, he just can't win tight matches when he should

Mario played poorly

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Except when is really close to winning...gets a wobbly arm like no-one else. He was serving at *6-5, had 30-30, in the TB he missed an easy shot for 5-1 and of course he also had mps (one on serve).

Very interesting but not a quality match, congrats Mario for winning it in the end
Finally after 18 years an all Croatian final
It would be a real shame if Mario lost this match, and he was close to it, especially after that bad call at 4-5 in the deciding TB.
And once again I'll repeat what I said in the beginning, Čilić will win the tournament, wonder if Bilbo still thinks different
