Red face Is Ancic the 2nd best player (NOT GRASS!!!) to choke away titles?

Can I just stress - NOT grass, NOT outdoor hard, NOT indoor hard. Okay!

I think this thread has to be done...and bumped until the end of his career with the way he is going!

Well?

Cool Re: Is Ancic the 2nd best player (NOT GRASS!!!) to choke away titles?

If he still can't win one live single match in DC,captain should pick someone else to replace him.

Ancic is still young

If you want to talk about disappointment in finals, try Cedric Pioline. He was in 17 finals during his illustrious career, and he only won 5 of them.

Frankly though, not even half of the loses were actual chokes. When you run into a better player, or someone playing better, there's no shame in losing. Plus, I'd say only 25% of alleged "chokes" are actual chokes, but that's another topic!

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

Congrats Mario, you have officially arrived. You have hatas in MTF's GM forum. This is definitely the big league.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Is Ancic the 2nd best player (NOT GRASS!!!) to choke away titles?

Mario reminds me of Henman in a way, good attacking game, but not ruthless enough on court to win consistently, it will be interesting if he starts winning consistently, how many people will love him again.

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you tell me how it feels to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above

Mario's mad at himself already so there's no need to keep on bashing him and calling him a loser, a chocker or anything else for that matter. He is smart enough to know that he has wasted a big, big chance.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Poor Mario... All peoples are agains him, because he lost a final after having match points.. he is not the first.. Federer in semis in AO open this year agains Safin..
I am agree to say that he is fragil with his mental, but it is not a bad player!!
If he was, he wouln't be 17th in the ATP rankings...
He need time...

AJMO MARIO!!
