Ancic will never accomplish anything

i'll always be a fan, but he has got to be the weakest player mentally to play at this level. whenever a draw opens up, he plays like shit. he only plays well when he's not expected to win. the only reason he finally won a title after 5 years on tour was because none of his opponents were any good. with the exception of the semis at wimbledon (which were thanks to malisse retiring and henman playing a terrible match), he hasn't made even the QF of a TMS or GS event. in the past few months it appears that he can't even convert of break points. 0 for 6 in the first set against rusedski (greg was 2 for 3) and the only reason he broke was because greg missed one of the easiest shots of all time and then double faulted. yesterday he was something like 1 for 11 in the last two sets. he can't get his serve in, he can't hit an easy volley (he does great on hard volleys), he can't ralley, he couldn't hit a forehand at 30-30 if his life depended on it, and he's never confident in himself and his abilities.

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

both times he lost serve in the third he hit 4 ues. all rusedski had to do was get the ball back. when it matters most he gets way too tentative and ends up making a stupid mistake.

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

at wimbledon he was favored to make the semis. the moment he faced a half-decent opponent, he chicken out and choked. he hit like 20 dfs over 3 sets. then, in split against pavel he chocked. he was up a set and a break and playing the best tennis of his life and then totally fell apart despite having a million chances to win the match. and now this...pffff

i remember he once played fish and only lost like 3 points in the first set before he completely fell apart and lost that match as well

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

Don't forget Greg. He played a good match and thoroughly deserved the win.
That missed smash by Ancic to lose serve in the 3rd was the killer.
Well done Greg for making your first TMS QF in 4 years.

You're not being a very good fan to say things like that.

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

He's okay, he's not that good obiviously! Alot of players look good when there playing well, but when there not playing there best there lost, that's what seperates the Great ones from the good ones, and the good ones from the just okays....did you guys get that? lol

He's just a frustrated fan and he has the right to vent. To lose serve 4 times to Rusedski on any surface with the type of serve that Ancic has is just inexusable.

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

ancic is definately overrated. i dont see anything special at all about him......
tbh, i dont really expect him to win greg today..... the only advantage he has over greg is he is a lot younger....

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

not only is he way younger, he has a better fh, bh, volleys, and serve

he just was incapable of playing anywhere near his norm

Re: Ancic will never accomplish anything

he makes a SF of Wimbledon and people start building him up to something he is not - he is still young so give him a chance
