Seeing how CLOSE the resemblence is to Sampras. This following newspiece leads me to believe Federe will lose to Ancic just as Sampras lost to Courier


Ironically the 25th victory came in the 4th round of the French open, SAME as sampras



Roger Federer's straight-set victory over Tomas Berdych put him on yet another plateau.

It was his 25th consecutive Grand Slam victory, tying Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors and placing him four behind the record held by Rod Laver (1968-69).

If Federer wins the French Open, he'll have 28 straight wins and can break the record in the second round at Wimbledon.

Sampras reached 25 straight at the 1994 French Open, before he lost in the quarters to Jim Courier.

Dont think so.I am sure he wont take Ancic for granted.Ancic has a big serve but so did Berdych.I thin if Roger plays his game, he will win.

Yup Berdych is kinda good practice for Fed, Ancic will do more of the same except he's more steady and has a better overall game especially at the net.

It certainly will be a tough one since Mario seems to be in a fighting to the end mood in his past two tournies. What determination. :eek:

Ancic will be difficult if he keeps a lot of balls in play and thereby gets to the net before an error.

BTW, if Ancic does beat Federer, it will be because of what happens on that day. Nothing about Sampras losing to Courier in the QF's after 25 straight GS wins has anything to do with it.

It's amazing how Federer and Sampras share so many similarities.
But I think Fed is good enough to win this match though.

But what about the Courier/Ancic element? Obviously, Ancic is really just little-Goran, so in 2008, they are going to meet in the Wimbly final and Ancic will melt in the 5th, cry...get injured...leave a few years...and win in 2011 as a wildcard when Roger is finally taken out by a random kid from the USA, his first loss at Wimbledon since the 4th round of 2006 when he loses to a tall dutch guy.

Ancic is much different from Berdych. He has a bigger serve and frequently attacks at the net. If Ancic Holds his serve he will definetely has a chance to win. I'm expecting Ancic to shorten rallies as Federer is strong from the baseline.

Berdych's Match is definitely a tougher match than the scoreline suggests.

I know they have very different games but a similar approach to the game which is to be aggressive Berdych mostly from the baseline and Ancic prefers to end at net usually and is very good up there; especially with his height and reach.

In theory before the match, but the scoreline is a pretty good indication of how the actual match went.

In my limited sense of Tennis....Roger won't lose to Ancic..... Just not in this case

Peter Wessels is gonna reach the quarters at Wimbledon?! This is good news for Dutch tennis, finally.

I think Federer can lose this only if for some reason he plays way below his standard.

I mean, all props to Ancic and his determination, but Fed can do everything Robredo can, and much more on top of it. Another dimension, actually. And if you watched Mario-Tommy you could see that Robredo is still obviously better than Mario on this surface, and Mario won that match on a sheer force of will. I don't think it will be quite enough to harm Federer if he plays his game the way he does, more often than not.

Mario was very tired yesterday , he asked for a medical pause for his leg to be treated , I hope he can take another long match

Oh no, he's gonna win it! In the final he will beat a random compatriot of Federer (Stan?) who will then fade into the shadows.

Ok, i'm done.

As much as I'm an Ancic fan, I don't think he will have much chances against Federer. Federer is thé man to handle big serves and to keep it cool when his opponent is at the net.

If Roger plays within his standarts, he will win. If he doesn't, then the 'ancichoke' will come back and Roger will prevail as well.

I doubt he'll even have a hard match
I expect fed to win in straight sets. Robredo wasnt at his top last night and it took him 5 sets to win. Dont get me talking about ancic and his errors!

All except replace "tall Dutch guy" with " tall Russian guy". ;)

I reckon Federer will lose to Ancic but on another day and another surface.

I'm already predicting a Federer-Ancic Wimbledon final.

I'm already keeping my fingers crossed they land on opposite sides in the draw... enough with Roddick already, I doubt he'll make a Wimby final in the next 2-3 yrs.

Ancic will give Federer trouble tomorrow, but not enough trouble to take him out that's for sure. Anyhow, it'll be a very interesting match, and I'm positive Federer will bring his A-game tomorrow.

From Federer's interview after d. Berdy:

Q. Can you look ahead to Mario in the next round.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, what a match he played. Was a lot of drama. Obviously, I was watching it because I was just following him on that court.

So, no, I think it's a little bit of a surprise he gets through that section of the draw. He's been playing really well on clay lately. I mean, I'm not going to underestimate him at all because that happened to me in Wimbledon when I lost to him. That's not going to happen. He's a good player. He can shorten the points. He can stay at the baseline, rally, he's a tough player.
