Anyway, it must be quite embarrassing for Ancic to only break an injured Richard 3 times.
Exactly. His first serves were actually hit like seconds. Ancic was very angry cos yes, he didn't take advantage of this.
Richard managed to hit great shots (many dropshots, a dropshot on serve, an amazing lob...) which made Ancic a bit nervous. The commentators said "Il le ridiculise là"...
He hold well in the 2nd but it was obvious that he couldn't play properly because of this injury.(I was like "Come on Richard!!!
Btw, he was in the crowd during Paulo's match. He was smiling and didn't seem to be so "affected" by his loss.
Take some rest and recover well Richard!
