Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

Only person really who can upset Fed's game is Ancic. As he did in 2002, it can be safely said Fed fears his game. On grass that is

Looking at the draw Fed will play either Hewitt or Ancic (or even Safin) in the Semis. But i do not think Safin is a better player than Ancic on grass.

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

actually, mario got about as good of a draw as he can get. he has hrbaty, safin, and hewitt to beat if he wants to make the semis and all of those matches are winnable

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

unless you're blind, stupid or both, you'd notice Fed has beat the crap out of him twice already this year. And Ancic hasn't done shit on any surface. If some how you think he will magically play above his peformance so far because he feels like it, you're on drugs.

You are underrating Ancic. I'v seen one of the matches that you reffer to and Roger seemed unusually out of control of that match. He capitalised on a few bad service-games from Ancic side, but he was not able to dominate.

I heared that in the second one it was even tougher.

Federer himself said that Ancic is very tough for him.

And both of these matches were on hard-courts - and you probabbly know that Ancic defeatet Federer in strait sets two years ago in Wimbledon, and that Federer didn't loose a match on grass since then...

I agree than Ancic is one of the most scary oponents for Federer, but I still think Federer would eventualy be able to pull it off. I still think that the toughest match for Federer will be the possible reprise of last year final against Roddick...

And how far did Mario go in that tournament you're all refering to as Mario's glorious moment?

Didn't he lose his following match...?

Federer will win the title, but the only one I´d fear if I were him is Ancic

Fed will beat this croatian cherub like you wouldn't believe. If Ancic even makes it that far, which I doubt.

in love with an idiot

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

Ancic is definitely one of the best grass players around. I'm not sure if he can beat Rogi, but if he does, he might go all the way. He's my - not so - dark horse for the tourney. Most certainly one to watch!

Good luck to ...

how is this a good draw for mario?
does he have winning records against safin and hewitt? most people would say this is a tough draw for ANYONE, so on what basis is this a good draw for mario.

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

Hrbaty and Safin have both been inconsistent this year. F-Lo isn't having a good year. I'd be shocked if Ancic didn't reach at least the QFs to face probably Hewitt or Dent.

For Fed, he's making it to the Semis more than likely - only resistance I could foresee is Baghdatis, who took a set off him at the US Open, if he can play on grass (anyone know?) or Verdasco, who has a bigger lefty serve than Nadal and made it through qualies 2 years ago when he was 19 to lose 1st round to Nieminen (was top 30 then) in 5 sets - not bad considering there are no grass courts in Spain.

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

as poor as his form has been recently, there is some remote possibility that grudeski could cause trouble early on

Re: Wimby Draw: Fed/Ancic Semi-Final possibility

Ancic has a lot of points to defend. Is he good at that?

well, i think mancic will be less concerned with what points he has to defend and more concerned with going deep into the draw for what that means aside from any points

he would have to take out both safin and hewitt to get to Roger. with safin's recent final at halle, i would not discount safin on grass too much although mancic probably has the edge
