Re: Ancic to speak at Harvard

But it's obvious that Lepi Ancic didn't have to study as hard as normal students to get his degree.

i am a law student in Zagreb, and everybody except the media in Croatia makes fun of Mario, yeah he got that diploma, but how he did it is another thing, people go mad studying law, he did it just like it was nothing special, so many exams at ones, he must be a freakin genius cause normal students prepare one exam, maybe two, he managed to do it like a superman...

The university of Split where he studied law is known for this shit,offering easy ways for famous students, he is a smart fellow, but that diploma is doubtful......

I mean how can soemone train for lets say 5 or 6 hours a day, or even more, travel arround the world, so many torunaments and matches, dealing with sponsors and the media, we speak about pro athletes not some amateurs, and then be able to learn for a couple of hours (7-8 hours is minimum for law school) in the same day, learning from books that have a couple of thousand pages, and then when he is injured he suddelny passes all teh exams he has left; he is truly amazing ....

P.S: I actually like Mario, but that bragging about the diploma, he did not need this....

Re: Ancic to speak at Harvard

He may not have studied as much as other law students but he studied way more than any other tennis pro. Plus, if any law student studies a lot, that does not mean he'll make a better lawyer. And visa versa.

I think Mario is a great example for tennis players, he proves you can combine professional sport with respect to education. That's awesome!

i did no say he was not smart, especially for an athlete, but regular students don't get by far the same treatment he did, just wanted to point out that anyone could finish law shool that way, other students have to work as hard as it gets to get where he got, some students need more some need less time to learn, and the best students do not turn out to be the best lawyers, that is a fact; my point is that normal students go step by step on foot, he went through it like a ferrari, i hope you get what i tried to say, that is not fair regarding all the other students, especially not when he brags about it so much...

Re: Ancic to speak at Harvard

I understood you and disagree. I think exactly the opposite-- anyone with normal high school education and average intelligence can finish a law school without combining it with doing sports professionally, it takes an extraordinary person and/or family to manage to get a law degree while being a professional athlete in any sport, especially in tennis.

I think he was out of tour with mono for many months while preparing his dissertation. Didn't he say something like when he had mono he couldn't train or play tennis at all and all he could do was studying and that helped?

Well, I believe you when you say that he got a special treatment, but I don't think anyone could finish law school that way. Combining a tennis career and a (adjusted) law study is still a great achievement imo.

Re: Ancic to speak at Harvard

a pal which studies law in Split was in the same room with him when he was on his exam
he said he did pretty well
but he suspect that the questions were rigged for him

there are other athlets in Croatia which are on much easyer program then Ancic was...their path is much harder...they dont have enough time
Ancic had for one of the most intense program there is here in Croatia
