Mario in Adelaide... Jan 3rd - 9th

On the cusp of making his mark is brilliant Croatian Mario Ancic [29]. Ancic walked in the footsteps of kinsman Goran Ivanisevic when he advanced to the semifinals at Wimbledon this year with victories over Xavier Malisse (BEL) and favourite Tim Henman (GBR) before losing to Andy Roddick (USA) in the final four. Still only 20, the cool-headed Ancic reached the semifinals of three more Tour events in 2004 and was runner-up at Milan.


GOOO MARIO!!! :worship: ;)

In Adelaide, Mario will probably be seeded 5. :)
Indeed there are only four players better ranked than Mario on the player list : L.Hewitt (n°3), J.Johansson (n°12), N.Kiefer (n°21), J-I.Chela (n°26).

About Mario on Adelaide website :
At last year’s Wimbledon, and at just 20, Ancic proved he could perform on the big stage when he ran into grasscourt specialist and hometown favourite Tim Henman. The towering Croat took it like any other match and after 132 minutes shattered the hopes of Britain with a straight sets victory. In the following round he was a narrow loser to world No.2 Andy Roddick. Adding to his healthy Wimbledon record is the fact that Ancic was the last person to defeat Roger Federer at the All England Club when he knocked the Swiss out in the first round as a qualifier in 2002. Ancic’s huge serve and fine skills around the court make him one of the brightest young prospects on the tour.

Just thought I'll post some good news!!!

I saw Mario today at Adelaide, he saw a few games of Olivier Rochus' match. So I had to ask him how his ankle was.... he said that he won't play next week but will be playing the Aus Open!!! :D He has just been doing some light running at the moment but should be back on the courts hitting again tomorrow ;)
