never forget this best choke ever ( when we see a thread like ancic was a grand slam winner potential ... lol )
His next match was also the last pro match in his career
, because he just had not enough energy for more than two challenger sets even with his strokes at about 50% power.
Unlike the player whom he beat at Wimb.'02 and lost to in Wimb.'06 & '08 QFs, he and Sod were not lucky with their type of Mono.
Let's see who among 1996+ generation will make GS SF two months after the 20th birthday.
As 22 y.o. he finished 2006 season at no.9 making RG & Wimb. QF, let's see who'll be the next 22 y 2 m top-10 player.
Regretfully 2006 was virtually his last competitive season, because in the next four seasons he entered just four GS, losing Wimb.08 QF and RG'08 3R to Federer and AO'07 4R 5-setter to semifinalist Roddick.
