Mario Ancic have itself placed for the kwartfinale of the Ordina open. The kroa at covered colleague service kanon Wayne Arthurs with 6-4, 7-6 (1).

Mario Ancic to service
The game knew such as expects only short points with dominant rise
turns. Rallies of more than five battles did not prevent in fact. Generally it three or less was. Only at the end of each set the players came in the problems for their
rise part. Ancic break the 34 person whose birthday it is Australier on 4-4 in
the first set.
The second set led to a tiebreak where Arthurs earlier already?n
setpoint got on the service of Ancichad. In that tiebreak the illusions of the Australier the ground was
rapidly bored in. Ancic came by one minibreak and two strong rises on 0-3, whereupon the bedwinger of Raemon sluiter beat two double errors. On 1-6 the orphan of Rohan Goetzke served the party from.}

here is a report from ordina officialsite on his match vs jonas :

{Ordina open
Ancic get much capacitance of Bjorkman [ 17 June 2005 ]
Mario Ancic have again placed themselves for the half final of the Ordina open, but against Bjorkman he had add all sails: 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
Jonas Bjorkman stand on grass still its male Ancic complimented the zweed after result exhaustively. He is still one of the best retourneerders in the world and his volleys
are of large class.Bjorkman had enough time, however, even necessary get grip on the
service of Ancic. In the first set Ancic threw each time a couple cannonballs as the
dubbelspecialist in the burst of a break game. Own rise also its ran not yet this way florisant. In the second company the zweed approached always in the games of the
kroaat and on 3-2 the break a fact was. On 5-2 Ancic setpoints still two on its own service worked gone, but a game later ensured Bjorkman a decisive set.
Light irritation was visible at Ancic, those had take care how the zweed improves its service always mow. The rallies were of high level in the second and third set, but nevertheless it was the orphan of Rohan Goetzke who at that lock stage the decisive break could place. He seemed the third set what fresher and more on its hoede. On 5-3 Ancic served the party on love from. The kroaat plays in the half final against Jan Hernych. The tsjech covered Philipp Kohlschreiber with 7-6 (1), 6-2.}

after semifinal: (from atpsite)

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID:
『Llodra:
About the final: "It’s going to be very tough to win. Mario looks very good, he plays easy on grass."

Ancic: “I was close to reach the final here last year, losing in the semifinals in the third set to Guillermo Coria. This year I’ve played pretty good tennis and I’m satisfied with the way I’m playing.”

About the final: “He has a big serve, playing natural serve and volley. He’s a tough kind of player and I think his results here show everything. I have to play my game, being aggressive and coming in.”』

linus
06-18-2005, 08:50 PM
and the final preview:

『No. 3 seed Mario Ancic meets defending champion Michael Llodra in today’s final of the Ordina Open. The two players have faced each other only once before, in the Bratislava Challenger event in 2002, where Ancic won in straight sets.

The 21-year-old Croatian is looking for his career first ATP title in his third final (’05 Scottsdale, ’04 Milan), while Llodra seeks his second win after capturing his first in ‘s-Hertogenbosch one year ago.

Ancic has had an impressive 2005, having compiled a 26-14 record, reaching the final in Scottsdale (l. to Arthurs) as well as the semifinals in Marseille (l. to Ljubicic) and Rotterdam (l. to Federer).

Unseeded Llodra has recorded four of his eight wins in 2005 this week in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. His best performance since winning his maiden title here one year ago, is reaching the fourth round at the 2004 US Open (l. to J Johansson) and the semifinals in St. Petersburg (l. to Beck) last year.

The 25-year-old Frenchman is looking to become the third player to successfully defend the Ordina Open title (Rafter ’00, ’99, ’98; Schalken ’03, ’02)

35 INDESIT ATP 2005 Race Points and €44,100 are up for grabs for the winner of the final.

In the doubles final, a Czech winning team is guaranteed as Cyril Suk and Pavel Vizner take on countrymen Tomas Cibulec and Leos Friedl. Suk is appearing in his sixth Ordina Open doubles final and is looking for an astonishing fifth title. 』

a report from reuters:

Ancic beats Llodra to win first Tour title
2005-06-19 14:02:28 GMT (Reuters)

(adds quotes)

By Simon Cambers

DEN BOSCH, Netherlands, June 19 (Reuters) - Croatia's Mario Ancic underlined his grasscourt credentials on Sunday, beating defending champion Michael Llodra 7-5 6-4 to win the Ordina Open.

The third seed, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon last year and the 10th seed next week, produced an outstanding serving display and broke once in each set to claim his first ATP title.

"It's a great feeling, a relief," said Ancic, who had lost his two previous finals.

"I felt really confident out there and from the first point to the last point, I was playing really great tennis."

In soaring temperatures, Ancic dropped just three points on serve in the opening set and broke Llodra in the 11th game when the Frenchman double-faulted.

Llodra had tamed the big serve of Australian wildcard Mark Philippoussis in the semi-finals, but he could only laugh at times as ace after ace went past his racket.

The Frenchman saved two break points in the fifth game of the second set but Ancic ripped a forehand winner to break and held his nerve to clinch victory as Llodra's attempted pass found the bottom of the net.

Ancic was the last man to beat two-time defending champion Roger Federer at Wimbledon, and the Croat said he felt better prepared than ever before for a crack at the title, having lost to American Andy Roddick in the semi-finals last year.

"I think this is great preparation for Wimbledon," he said.

"I think the courts here were much better for us because they are more like the courts at Wimbledon.

"I feel more developed. My results this year have been much better on all the other surfaces, and this week gives me a lot of confidence.

"I know the first couple of rounds will be very tough and I'll have to be focused but I think I have a good chance to do well."


NO COMPLAINTS

As for Federer, Ancic said the world number one would take some stopping at Wimbledon again this year.

"He won Halle for the third year in a row, and he showed even in Paris that he is playing unbelievable," Ancic said.

"His mindset is that he wants to win Wimbledon and it's extremely tough to beat him.

"You have to play unbelievable tennis and hope that he is not having his best day."

Llodra had no complaints about his defeat, having reached the final despite having winning only four matches in 2005 before arriving in the Netherlands.

"Of course when you lose in a final it's disappointing," he said.

"But Mario played so well today and it was tough for me to return his serve. He put me under so much pressure through the whole match.

"When I did have an opportunity he hit a big serve. Last year I won and this year I came second. That's life. It's been a good week for me, given me some more confidence."
