Like the commentator said he really is Super Mario. (except about a million times better looking!)

My first post in here- have been a Mario fan since I saw him a number of years ago when I was first getting into tennis (possibly the year he beat Federer actually) and I saw him playing and just really remember wanting him to win. And then I didn't see him again for the entire tournament. :sad: But the next year I managed to track him down! :D

Anyway after all the glandular fever malarky am glad he's doigng well again :)

Thanks, I was about to ask you to please upload it, but then someone said in GM that you can download matches directly from Wimbledon Live (the link is http://wimbledon.mediazone.com/other/mens_singles.html). I was surprised because I thought you needed to subscribe in order to dl, but it's working well for me (and pretty fast).

You can download it, but you'd need to log in when you try to play it in Windows Media Player. Even if you try another player the video would come out all scrambled.

So yeah, it wouldn't work :sad:

M. Ancic Interview - 27 June

Q. When you knew you had won the match, what was your first reaction?

MARIO ANCIC: My first reaction is ‑‑ you know, I was so pleased. Like I said, straight after the match in the interview, last year at this time I missed it. I was going through a rough time for a year. Always when I was ‑‑ many times I tried to come back, and always in my mind was to play Centre Court at Wimbledon.

That was what was always motivating me, to play big matches like this in a big stadiums. That's what I work for, and that was what was pushing me in this tough year, to come ‑‑ to be able to go through all that. So that was going through my mind.

I remember, I mean, last year I was at this time running intervals, spending time in gym, doing everything I could to be fit again. You know, I realized how much I missed it last year, Wimbledon.

Of course it was not easy for me. But to come out today and play this great match, I think, with a top five player and to win on Centre Court, you know, it was a big moment for me.

I mean, I had great memories here in Wimbledon, and this is going to be one of them for sure.

Q. At the end, you kneeled down and kissed the grass. Why?

MARIO ANCIC: Just because of that. It was a flashback from everything what was going on in my head, what was going on in ‑‑ like I said, in this year that I was not able to play.

It just, you know, was almost like saying, Here I am back again. Thanks. I love this court at Wimbledon. It means so much to me.

Q. What were your expectations at the start of this year?

MARIO ANCIC: At the start?

Q. Of this year.

MARIO ANCIC: Well, it wasn't too much, because I missed Australian Open, and that was number four Grand Slam in a row that I missed. Actually I didn't know what to think anymore because I was always trying to do the best things, and it was not coming true at all.

I mean, I was not being able to play. I was not being able to practice. Whatever I did was ‑‑ looked like it was not going anywhere.

I couldn't ask for a better start to the season to finally play Marseille. Then from there on the goal was just to be healthy in the beginning. The only, if you can say goal, was to try to compete at the Olympics, and that means to be in top 60. That was the goal.

Q. So what does it mean to reach the second week now for you?

MARIO ANCIC: It means unbelievably much. I think whoever is in the second week is a potential danger, and many guys show great tennis. And for me personally, like I said, this victory and coming to second week means a lot.

Of course I'm satisfied with an unbelievable win and I will enjoy it today and tomorrow and then think about the next round. Sunday's preparation for a match on Monday, and full focus for that, completely new match.

You know, I came through second round, which was very hard, five sets, playing so and so. Being able to come and play such a great match, it just shows that every match is a new match, and every match you have to try to do the best.

But like I said, today and tomorrow is completely ‑‑ I enjoy this moment, big moment for me to come to second week again, like I said, after everything that was going on, to be again in this position.

Q. You're the last person to beat Federer on grass. What do you make of that?

MARIO ANCIC: Well, it's been six years ago. I mean, he was obviously not the same player as he is now, and I think me personally, for me it was much better result is playing quarters, playing semis at Wimbledon, because you have to play back to back.

At that time he was struggling with his Grand Slam record and I played an unbelievable match. But it's history. Then we play after that a couple times and I lost, so it just shows it has nothing to do with that anymore. That's it.

Big congratulations to Mario, I'm happy for him. The way he has came back is just amazing! :worship:

But I have to say I was cheering for Fernando in this match. He's never been to a grand slam quarterfinal before and is known for throwing away big leads, it would have meant so much. :sad:

OMG what an amazing match but what a stress! I believed I was dying! However against federer i think that it will be impossible!

06-30-2008, 03:55 PM
Oh my good, what a match. I knew that Verdasco is playing fantastic but these first 2 sets were for NO1. Mario really ''pulled out'' third and showed once again that when you play with hearth anything's possible. In 5th set I was on my knees praying and it did pay of...:)
Gl against Federer!

his acrobatic volleys weren' there today. And his service returns...:sad: I don't understand why he doesn't just block the ball back into play. his swings are way too long to be effective against roger's serve. also, his groundstrokes weren't penetrating enough. they were all so short. I think there are lots to improve on in his game.

anyways, glad to see him back.
get some rest and stay healthy mario
