Who could ever forget Wimbledon last year. It will always be heralded as one of the greatest Wimbledon's ever in its long history. It was the year our favourite Croatian Goran Ivanisevic won. Unfortunately he won't be playing in this years tournament but we may have a new Croatian tennis star in the making.

Step in Mr Mario Ancic.

Mario had to qualify for Wimbledon this year by beating three opponents. In the first round of Wimbledon he has already created a huge upset by downing Roger Federer of Switzerland 6/3 7/6 6/3.

Mario was born in Split, Croatia on 30th March, 1984. He is currently ranked 154 in the ATP Tour Singles Ranking. He was also a Junior Wimbledon finalist two years ago.

Here is an interview that was conducted after Mario won his first round match.

Q. Congratulations. How do you feel now?

MARIO ANCIC: I'm feeling -- I feel great. I just play one of the best matches in my life, so how can I feel? I cannot feel better I think.

Q. Was it a surprise to you?

MARIO ANCIC: I came first time to play Centre Wimbledon, they put me on Centre Court for my first time. I qualified, I had nothing to lose. I was just confidence. I knew I could play. I'm young. I believe in myself and I just go out there and try to do my best. Just I didn't care it who did I play, it doesn't matter. I just went there and play.

Q. Did you know anything about Roger? You had a special game plan or had spoken to Mr. Ivanisevic to see what you could do?

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, actually I spoke with him yesterday. And just I knew him from TVs. Some time I play Key Biscayne. That was my only big tournament this year. Otherwise I was in challengers.
But I knew already how is he playing. I don't know that he knew how I'm playing, but that was my advantage. And, yeah, I knew I didn't have any tactics, just I was playing, enjoying.

Q. How close are you to Goran? What does he mean to you?

MARIO ANCIC: We are from same town. When I was growing up, he was in Split and we always hit, even when I was 10. We were in Davis Cup together, we play in Olympics, doubles. I know he was always good to me. Sometimes I felt like he was my bigger brother in tournaments, and I know I can always relate on him. Like yesterday when I call him about tactics, you know.
He's a great guy and also player as you saw last year.

Q. How upset was he not to be here himself when he spoke to you yesterday?

MARIO ANCIC: I think he cannot watch too much other guys playing. He just sitting there. That's his character. But his arm is like -- it's not so great. He's now doing exercise. I hope and I think we all hope he come better next year.

Q. What did he exactly tell you yesterday as tips on how to play Federer? What did he tell you?

MARIO ANCIC: He told me just he has great forehand, just stay away from him. He can serve good, but sometimes just attack him on second. He knows to, like, make pressure on my second so I have to be little bit aggressive with that one. And, you know, he was mostly slicing backhand, sometimes hitting it. But I knew there was my chance. And I was serving good today.

Q. You had a chance last week to hit with Jim Courier. Did that help you in any way? Did he give you any advice or tips on your game?

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, it was a great experience to hit with him. We spoke about my game. We hit for one hour. He's still hitting good, I can tell you that (laughter).
And, no, he just told me play my game just be relaxed. And that's it.

Q. You have a lot of Goran's mannerisms. Have you been around him long enough to start acting like Goran, Jr.

MARIO ANCIC: No, Goran is Goran. Not me. I just knew him for a long time. We are from Split; we are typical. So it's maybe some other guys in 20 years are gonna come maybe the same. That's our character. We are all not too much difference, with our temperament.

Q. Last year Goran thrilled us explaining that he had three different personalties. Will you be able to thrill us this year? Do you have three different personalties, please?

MARIO ANCIC: I'm still one (laughing). No, he's unique.

Q. Where were you when Goran won last year? That must have been so special for everyone in Croatia. But where were you?

MARIO ANCIC: I just came from tournament, then I supposed to have off. But then from match to match I was just watching. And when he won, I cannot describe feeling. I just saw throwing everywhere from the houses, then you just see piece, crash, boom, bam. I say, "I cannot miss this." Then I went to him with the boat special and then we came in Split. I think everybody saw what happened yesterday.

Q. How many days did you party with him after winning?

MARIO ANCIC: Couple (smiling).

Q. What's the most important thing Bob has done for your game?

MARIO ANCIC: I don't know. We are four years. I think the best thing that he calm me down a lot and we are -- I think improving from every like day-to-day I think. I have to give 100 percent of each practice. And I think he calm me a lot in four years.
In the beginning I had to do push-ups for every word I -- because he knew everything from Goran that was -- I was unlucky there.
But then I get pretty strong soon and then I get little bit clever that I cannot stop with this. And I think I'm okay now.

Q. When you went to Bob Brett, it was because Goran had been also with him, or was it an advice from Goran, or you went on your own?

MARIO ANCIC: No, no, when I was 14, then the guy who was managing me then was the same manager as Goran. Then they spoke and first I came, like, one week to Monte-Carlo and then after he was still with Kiefer, and then after and always he had time, you know, I was sparring a lot to Kiefer and other guys.
And after when he wrote to Kiefer, it was normal, it was going normal. And we are still together.

Q. You had a real feel for grass, which is unusual for a young player, a European player. Had you played much on it before? You were chipping around charging. You were slicing your backhand.

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, I played final of Juniors here two years ago. But I like grass. I'm big server, big guy. So it doesn't -- just few tips you need to know. Good thing, I was volleying exceptionally good today and just making pressure whenever I can. Because on grass you have to be always ready, prepared and focused always.

Q. People will now compare you with Goran, tomorrow in the papers. How difficult will it be to make everyone realize you are a different person?

MARIO ANCIC: I'm... Everybody know that I'm different person. It was all the time since I grew up they were talking that I am second Goran. But Goran says one best sentence that describes everything, "Next Goran will be his son," next Ivanisevic. I'm Mario. I think everybody will know me like that. I'm Goran's friend and that's it.

Q. If you win another couple of rounds do you think you can make him come over here and support you?

MARIO ANCIC: I don't know. You have to speak with him. I don't know.

Q. Would you like him to?

MARIO ANCIC: Yeah, I like. I like it.

Q. Over his long career, Goran has broken many numbers of racquets and spoken to a lot of his racquets. Do you do the same, break racquets or have conversations with them?

MARIO ANCIC: I just broke them. I'm not too sensitive like him to talk (laughter).

Q. You said that after Goran won in Croatia they were throwing things all over the place. How far will you have to go in this tournament before they start throwing things all over the place and celebrating wildly?

MARIO ANCIC: I don't know. We are typical. There, just everybody gonna make great effort. If you lose, you are all -- again, they will say this guy isn't worth anything. So I don't know. I hope they gonna start.
They started last year when Goran went to last 16. Before they thought, "Ahh, he's playing all year bad. We don't want to watch him." Then he beat I think Rusedski last 16, everybody started there and nobody was working anymore when he was playing. And after, was just crazy.

Q. How much will this win mean to him, as he's not able to be here?

MARIO ANCIC: I think he like, because of me. Because he is a good guy. He's also -- he also care for everybody else, all Croatian players. And I think he will be delighted.

Q. Was there a moment today when you realized, "I can win this," during the match?

MARIO ANCIC: I didn't think like. I just... No, I thought I can -- I was pretty confident from the beginning that I can play with him because I play with -- I was sparring with lots of players on the tour and I didn't have fear of them. And I believe in myself, in my game. And I just didn't think. I just think, "Let's go next point, next point, next point," and just was like going like that.

For all you girls out there, there is defintiely hope in the world of tennis as far as meeting the guy players-

I worked the summer after senior year (in high school) at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington, D.C. and ended up meeting and going out at night with a lot of the tennis players: Arnaud Clement, his coach, Gonzalez, but my favorite times were with Mario Ancic! I was watching one of his matches, and after it he came right up to me and said "Thank you for your support" in this adorable, polite, boyish kind of way. So I ended up giving him my cell phone number and we went out every other nite for the rest of the tournament. He is SUCH a great kisser (and so is Clement's coach...hehehe) and really sweet to. Keep on dreamin' u girls, cause it can become a reality like that!

I met him at the us open this year. HE was practising on the outer courts, then I tried to get his autograph and there I asked him, " do you date older women?"

he turned red and started to blush really hard..and said, " yes" so adorable!


Ivan ljubicic was also there..i told him, " I hope you beat roddick" he laughed and said, " me 2"

it was obvious he hated roddick too!

Mario Ancic was the best player, he made the difference," said the Belgian coach, Steven Martens after the match.

it's about Ljubicic and Ancic in Lyon :p . i have no idea, from what i guess, it's saying that Lujbicic played the favourite, Arnaud Clement and that the Belorussian, Max Mirnyi (something about London tournament:D), defeated Mario Ancic. he won the first set 6:3 and was up 3:1 in the second when Ancic retired.

and then something else ;) . wonder what it actually means...

well as far as I can tell, Mario's name is still on the Madrid list which means he hasn't withdrawn. Hopefully this means his injury wasn't so serious and he's fit to play! Fingers crossed he does ok there!

yeah...well I guess with a draw like that it was kinda expected...though of course it's very disappointing. The last few weeks have been such a let-down after the Superset. Anyone know which tournament he'll be playing next week (if at all)?

Gazio sam Fisha, izgubio servis i stao
Autor TVRTKO PULJIĆ

U prvom setu pobijedio je sa 6:0. Dominacija, savršenstvo, Mario Ančić iz najboljih dana. Onda je Mardy Fish sve preokrenuo i sljedeća dva seta odlučio u svoju korist sa po 6:4. Nije prvi put i Mario to zna, nije niti prvi put u prvom kolu. Analiza će otkriti čak deset takvih ovosezonskih poraza. Za tenisača koji je u Wimbledonu, ali ne samo u Wimbledonu, pokazao kako se igra, previše. I Mario to zna. U utorak ujutro bio je u madridskom hotelu. Nije bilo pitanja o tome je li prethodne noći spavao. Odgovor je bio prilično jasan, meč je završio nakon ponoći. Teško da je lagano zaspao...

- Što da kažem?! U prvom setu sam ga uništio, doslovce sam ga gazio. I onda tako glupo izgubim servis i gem u drugom setu. Iako je riječ o dvorani, podloga nije najbrža. I nadmorska visina valjda utječe na to da lopte čudnije lete, teško se priviknuti na ritam reterna. Nisam uspio do kraja meča. Usput, Fish je nadaren igrač, kad je shvatio da je ugrabio priliku, više je nije ispuštao - rekao je Mario Ančić.

Nije smak svijeta, Fish sigurno ne spada u kategoriju tenisača od kojih je grijeh izgubiti, ali ostao je dojam da onoga trenutka kad Ančić osjeti turnir, kad prođe prvo ili drugo kolo, da je sposoban za sve. Ipak, čak deset puta ove sezone ostao je na početku...
- Ne, ne radi se o blokadi. Od Wimbledona sam pauzirao dva mjeseca zbog ozljede skočnoga zgloba. U Ateni, na Long Islandi i na US Openu pobijeđen sam na startu, ali bilo je to zbog stanke, nedostajalo mi je tada igranja. Jedno je trening, drugo su mečevi. Onda sam u Delray Beachu uhvatio polufinale, a formu sam zadržao i igrajući u Davisovu kupu te u nimalo lakoj ekshibiciji u Londonu. Prošli tjedan uhvatilo me rame i sada sam izgubio. Nije prvi put da sam dobro počeo, pa stao. Valjda je riječ o koncentraciji, morat ću na to pripaziti. Možda mi ovaj poraz i najteže pada jer sam u dobroj formi, to vrlo dobro znam. Tu stalnost forme držim još od Delray Beacha - uvjeren je Ančić.

Iz Madrida će danas otputovati u Amsterdam. Ondje će s trenerom Goetzkeom brusiti formu za posljednja dva turnira sezone.
- Već u subotu putujem u Basel, ondje bih mogao igrati u utorak. Nakon Basela slijedi moj posljednji turnir ove godine, onaj u pariškoj dvorani Bercy. Vjerujem da ću ostati u dobroj formi i da će iz Švicarske i Francuske stići bolje vijesti.
Slijedi dva tjedna odmora i opet povratak u Amsterdam. Treninzi, start je odmah u prvom tjednu novog ljeta.
- Igrat ću u Adelaidi, pa u Sydneyu uoči Australian Opena u Melbourneu. Ne zanimaju me chalangeri, treba se dobro pripremiti za početak nove sezone - zaključio je Mario Ančić.

A u 2005., ako mu se u međuvremenu ne otvori u Baselu ili Parizu, stići će i turnirske pobjede. U to smo gotovo uvjereni. Mario to jednostavno ima u sebi. I Top 10 također. I Wimbledon, koji će opet biti srce sezone, i na kojem će Mario Ančić biti jedan od favorita. Pri izboru favorita više ga nitko neće preskakati. I to ne samo u Wimbledonu.

http://www.vecernji-list.hr/newsroom/sports/more/126635/index.do

OK, basically Mario's saying that he played very well in the first set but in the second he lost his serve in a silly way (he was like up 40-00 but managed to get broken) and there it just stopped.

He'll play Basel and Paris this year and next year he plans on playing Adelaide, Sidney and AO.

Mario says he still feels in good shape and hopes he will do a lot better in the upcoming two weeks.

hmmmm? i don't think any of us is happy that he's out, the more difficult the draw is the more we want him to do well ;) i guess we're just happy that Mario's not saddened by the loss and he's willing to do better at this next tourney, that's all we're saying :D and he was getting into a lot of injuries lately too so i guess that comes in too. :)

Idril
10-20-2004, 08:49 PM
yeah, we're glad that he's not moping around like 'oooohhhhhhhhhhh i lost in Madrid i'm never going to play tennis again', we're not happy that he's out!

awww poor thing. I had my TEE (it's what we call the HSC here in Western Australia) a few years ago and it kinda sucked...had no life. But when it's finished...it's a great feeling. I'm sure you'll do well! Good luck!

Btw guys, the basel draw's come out and Mario gets.... DAVID NALBANDIAN :banghead: ....oh well, maybe David's a bit tired/injured from Madrid. Go Mario!!!
