Wimbledon Odds - Ancic a surprise 2nd fav?

Ancic has a good chance this year? Hopefully not too injured after FO heroics against Robredo. I hope he goes deep and gives a good challenge. A lot of people have been hoping for him doing well for years, but it hasn't
happened!

The odds put Ancic at 2nd favourite(around 20/1). Roddick is the 3rd favourite(22/1). Nadal is surprisingly up there at around 23/1. Hewitt similar. Ljubo aint up there. Karlovic 45/1 , i doubt he has any chance as he aint got game ! As we all know Fed is returning 1.45/1 which will probably end up 1.30/1 as we know how good his grass court form is.

Hmmm... I can't really anyone challenging Fed. Roddick and Ancic have the weapons, it is a shame Nalbandian is injured.

If Roger wins the French, he will lose @ Wimbledon... watch. However if Roger loses today, he'll win Wimbledon.

I know this because I ate a kit-kat bar today.

As far as seeded players I'd put James , Ivan and Gonzo as the ones to theoratically challenge for title. I'd put Roddick and Hewitt there out of past respect too. Ancic and other servers are only floaters who will need lots of breaks to breakthrough

Re: Wimbledon Odds - Ancic a surprise 2nd fav?

hello, I'm new here
I think Mario has always have good chances and it seems that he plays good in Wimbly every other year (2000 as a junior; 2002-4) so I am very confiednt about him
Only worry, his back injury and a bit tired after a (very) good clay season

Re: Wimbledon Odds - Ancic a surprise 2nd fav?

Well lets put it this way, no one can play on grass well enough to challenge federer (so its not really a surprise). Only nalbandian possibly, ancic and roddick will be easy pickings? Compare that to hardcourt, indoors, clay (so many excellent players).

There is such a lack of very good grasscourt players, which is why fed has such a cakewalk at wimbledon and will win it for years to come with ease.

Federer has Wimbledon wrapped up, but Roddick is more likely to make the final than Ancic.

Exactly, winning a tournament like barcelona or one of the tms on clay would be a more difficult task than winning wimbledon
