i dare not say that mario has a good draw, if he is good enough and marat too, they must meet in the 3nd round, how can it happen???

i will cry if that!!! but i won't see them two lose earlier, so this year's wimbly is a big disaster indeed!!!

is it just me that is actually pissed that have put him on tomorrow when he is playing n a final in another country today! generally when that happens nd you have an option (like they do here) you give them a day off! they've jus done it coz he knocked tim out last year! oh well at least he's on late i might be able to run off and see him on my break

linus
06-19-2005, 12:59 PM
Eowyn, me too, a bit worried about his adaption, but it seems the final is easy for him and i think Llodra wouldn't be exhausted too, so they will recovered fast for wimby, i wish!

but i think mario had better not drink too muchhttp://bestsmileys.com/lol/1.gifhttp://bestsmileys.com/lol/1.gifhttp://bestsmileys.com/lol/1.gif

looks like the wta source was wrong. good news is that court 18 is a tv and it's the court where i remember goran playing his first round match in 2001 :devil: against a qualifier no less, so good karma :) hopefully espn will show it because it is late in the day and they should still be on air :)

Mario was also featured in The Sunday Times - Style magazine :cool:

Game, Set and Catch, June 19th 2005

Mario Ancic

Nationality: Croatian
Age: 21
Nickname: Super Mario

Demeanour: tall, moody, irresistible: the dark lord of tennis

If he were a movie star: He's Baltic Clive Owen, He has a stern, lanky presence, but his huge brown eyes tell a thousand tales.

Vital Stats: born in the same neighbourhood of Split as his idol and mentor, Goran Ivanisevic. His father owns a chain of supermarkets and encourages his son to study law. As a result, the 6'5" Ancic can often be seen trotting around with a pile of books - kinda sexy. His moment of glory came in 2002 when he thrashed Federer on Wimbledon's centre court.

Style: appears calm, but underneath bubbles a volcano of passion. His reputation for throwing tantrums and rackets is attributable in part to his association to the equally torrid Ivanisevic, "I just break them" he says of his much abused equipment. "I'm not as sensitive as Goran, not sensitive enough to talk to them first." Phwoar.

Drawbacks: virtually silent

They say: the future has arrived and his name is Mario Ancic. "I've never seen anything put together like that" - Boris Becker

espn sacked up and showed the last game. mario played very well and ended it with a great fh winner form a defensive position. just too good. the difference really seems to be that he is fighting on every return game and getting a lot of serves back into play. summerer got every first serve in in that last game at over 120mph, but mario was able to get them all back and be offensive

and something from the atpsite:

『Last year's Wimbledon semifinalist Mario Ancic continued his fine grass court form with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-1 win over German Tobias Summerer. The Croatian had just one day earlier won his first career ATP title in 's-Hertogenbosch.』

vero
06-21-2005, 09:52 AM
So I was lucky, I could watch the second and third sets !!
In the beginning of the second set (at 2-all if I remember well), Mario had quite a tough service game, where he had to save break points, but then he played very well, winning his service games very easily, putting more and more pressure on Summerer's service games, to finally broke the German at 5-all and served out for the second set !
In the third set, like croat said, he played better and better, put a lot of returns in, won his service games with ease, ... this third set was a little bit like a demonstration !!

06-21-2005, 10:04 AM

i must admire vero u r so lucky!

how could u watch his play?? your tv??

in shanghai, we just watched some matches in the center court, they first showed a women single for the indian milza, then the 3rd set of my paulo vs federer and davenport and then marat vs chaphan(this is my favourite one yesterday), and during these, they showed some mymi's and elena's, that is all :(:(
starsports right?

linus
06-22-2005, 03:29 AM

06-22-2005, 03:53 PM
he will win... don't worry
i hope both mario and marat will win next rounds and play fourth round against eachother... that won't be easy to decide, i like them both

croat123
06-22-2005, 04:32 PM
safin looked very good today, hewitt looks weak.

the winner of mario vs. marat will go to the semis and maybe even upset roger (roger definately not playing his best right now)

linus
06-22-2005, 04:35 PM
he will win... don't worry
i hope both mario and marat will win next rounds and play fourth round against eachother... that won't be easy to decide, i like them both

skywalker, u r a girl, right?? and i like u at once for one of my colse friends has the same name with yours, :wavey: :wavey:

in our chinese forum on marat, we had a very activate time just now, we are all very excited now but they all asking me whether to support marat in the fourth round with them for they know i like mario so much, i always show mario to them to say how handsome, how lovely and how wonderful mario is!

omg, i can't make any decision at all, when i think of that situation, i will be mad right now! i hope that they both can go further but it means that of them, just one left, i will be upset to die at the moment! how could i do?? i don't know now. :sad: :sad: :sad:

linus
06-22-2005, 04:46 PM

dear croat, i agree with u

marat is so remarkable today, i am so proud of him and i am crying still now

and hewitt can be beated easily if he meets a good enough player;

and roger, i think he is too too eager to defend his title, and can't play his match with his best shape, but we must admit that he has so many experiences on the grass court, to be his opponent, the guy must be focused enough and calm enough, i think now marat can, but mario can too, anyway, i can't discuss marat&mario together now :sad: :sad: :sad:

linus
06-22-2005, 04:49 PM
oh, babies, mario has begun his serve first, how eager to see him :);)

linus

Linus Marat is on ESPN right now :) he is being interviewed :hearts:

yeah, i was watching him too, i am so moved and proud of marat, maybe the most proud -ever,at least than his australianopen, i don't know why but it is my true feeling

and do you notice in his every interview, he always is a bit funny, sometimes i am excited and feel like smiling, others i am upset and moved but at the same time i still wanna laugh,

and i download many his interviews to review when i am free, it is very funny. and mum will feel me very funny for i laugh or smile or cry with tears :angel: :angel: :angel:

and i must say it is our duty in charge of mario's now for we not be focused on him, he must feel some unheeded by us, :sad: :sad: :sad:

tinuviel_estel
06-22-2005, 06:17 PM

06-22-2005, 09:31 PM
mario looked very, very tired today. good news is that the forecast is for rain on friday which means that there is a good chance he won't have to play til saturday. also, monfils wasn't impressive at all today, hrbaty basically gifted him the match and monfils got injured in the fourth set, so a very good chance for mario to easily advance to the fourth round

pepsipin
06-24-2005, 11:36 AM
On the BBC here, it should be shown, if not in the main coverage then on the interactive coverage. Especially as I saw Sue Barker (wimbledon presenter) talk about all the good matches coming up today and Mario's was one of them!!

Safin lost the first set...do you think that playing Feliciano would be easier???
Yep, you're right mini ! Playing Feliciano, a lefty with a huge serve, woudn't be easier indeed ! :rolleyes: The winner of this match will be a tough opponent for Mario in the next round, that's for sure !

okay guys! just thought i'd give you updates as from what i've read you really haven't had much info on the games i have watched all of marios game against danai on wednesday and all his game today and he is loking good his only problem he has been having is his first serve has been going walk abouts early uin the second set! (thats why he dropepd the set to danai) he's been hitting them long and wide! but when he's been getting them in he's been hitting bullets some awesome aces todays top speed was 136 mph but on wednesday there was no speed gun on court but i swear one must have been around 150 it just went flying! afterwards he shouted "did you see that" (i had a croatian sitting next to me translating marios rants at himself so cute :lol: )

today he was better he only had a couple of dodgy serves (and a double fault :eek: ) but overall was looking brilliant! gael was strong and placing his serves well at one point he hit an 88mph ace! mario just looked confused by how slow it was! mario coped well with the shots that gael was hitting which was many and they both played brilliantly and mario just totally destroyed gale despite gael not doing anything wrong!

i'm confident for him he's doing great and he's chirpy and happy which i like. i saw him in the tunnel before todays game and he looked very focused after the game he was very goran like and really appreciating the crowd!

i'm backing for a mario/andy final! i'd not be able to chose to a winner.!

and just a funny story for you when danai got treated during their game the trainer was massaging his groin! i jokingly said "if mario ever needs that treatment i volunteer to do it" and mario heard me turned around and stuck his tongue out at me! hehe!

also mario was wearing spotted undies on wednesday!
he was wearing black ones today :)

M. Ancic - Day 5
Friday, June 24, 2005


Q. You must be pleased to get that over with before the rain came so you could have a clear weekend.

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, it was great because I saw after the first rain delay, you know, the sky was pretty dark and some drops were coming down. So I was really pleased the way we finish the third set. That was great.

Q. How did the first delay affect your game at all? Did it?

MARIO ANCIC: No. I mean, you know, from what I played after it showed up, it didn't really. Because I came out and broke him twice, twice in a row. So that was a great, great start. I think I played really good after to finish it off.

Q. What do you feel about Lopez in the next round?

MARIO ANCIC: Well, little bit watch today because he played the match before me. So watch his ‑‑ I mean, he's already been couple years here. He had some good results compared, you know. He's lefty, big serve. I mean, he beat Marat. So expecting really tough match.

But now it's I have two days off, so is plenty of time to think of that match.

Q. How will you spend the weekend? I mean, having the two days off, what will you do?

MARIO ANCIC: Just, you know, hit easy, you know. I been playing, you know ‑‑ basically I came here, play straightaway. So these two days is good. Hit easy, relax and massages and just wait the match, wait till Monday.

Q. Enjoy yourself, see the sights?

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, just enjoy, relax, hit a little bit and stay in form and just wait Monday.

Q. In this country you're still best‑known for having beaten Roger, the last man to beat Roger Federer on grass. Does that sort of annoy you that you're known because of his achievements?

MARIO ANCIC: After that I beat some good players on grass, so...

Q. Yeah. You beat Tim last year.

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, beat Tim also.

So, no, I mean, I'm not worried about what people recognize me. It's most important to come and watch. I feel there is a lot of people behind me here. You know, I feel, I mean ‑‑ I feel great here, so I don't ‑‑ I don't really care how that they remember me by winning first round here or by winning Roger. You know, when I see a lot of people cheering for me and want me to win, it's a great feeling.

Q. Your opponent talked a lot about what he had learned in the match. I was just wondering, what have you learned out of the match about your play and his play?

MARIO ANCIC: About the next match or today?

Q. Coming off this match, what have you learned about the way you play and what you need to work on, what you do well?

MARIO ANCIC: No, I think I, you know ‑‑ second round was a little bit struggle, so I was really serving well today. Really controlling the games on my serve really good.

I don't think ‑‑ he didn't have really big first serve percentage in, so that gave me a lot of opportunities to play and, you know, to hit and go in and make pressure. You know, that's what I did really good. He's, you know, I think talented player with a lot of skills. He's unbelievable fast.

No, I think I played a really, really solid match.

Q. Do you feel you can achieve what Goran did?

MARIO ANCIC: (Smiling).

Q. Or is it too early?

MARIO ANCIC: I think it's still too early in the tournament.

Q. There are a lot of seeds that are going out, some big names going out. Doesn't that give you...

MARIO ANCIC: No, I mean, I'm playing with a guy who is still, you know, Top 20, Top 25, who beat Marat, which, you know, I thought Marat ‑‑ was first ‑‑ I think this is the year, you know, when I was watching the matches, he was playing the best on grass. So lot of, you know, lot of ‑‑ I mean, he played some good match to win.

So, you know, he's a good player. He likes grass. He's been I think last year also fourth round, Lopez, here, you know. And he's a lefty, which is a pretty nice advantage here on grass.

He's, you know, I think talented player with a lot of skills. He's unbelievable fast.

Q. Do you feel you can achieve what Goran did?

That's great they finally put Mario's interview :) ... I like to know what the player himself has to say about his match. This way we have the player's point of view and not only the journalist's one ! :angel: I'm not saying that the journalist's point of view isn't interesting, I'm just thinking it's interesting to have both, so we can compare the outside view (the journalist's one) and the inside view (the player's one).

unfortunately marios match is first on :sad: and on court 18 so i can't watch it all or wish him luck in the tunnel before hand but i shoul dbe able to get my break timed so i can go watch some of it!

mario is playing awesome and feli played absolutely brilliantly against marat and totally deserves to be in the 2nd week but i think so long as mario keeps his head right (which he usually does) and his first serve doesn't decide to go on holiday again he should be fine!

linus

right, we need to think the difficulties fully and get better ready for it, and we must be more confident with mario,

mario, not to be a second marat :haha: :haha: :haha:
