:eek: :eek: :eek:

What the hell happened to Ancic in this match? Aisam played outstandingly, but Mario :rolleyes: :o

Following the scoreboard was a torture. I thought he wouldn't make it.

I don't know who this Qureshi fellow is, but congratulations for a great match :) .

I didn't think it'd be THAT hard, but I'm glad he came through.
And before we start talking smack, let's all remember this is his first match on grass in ages, and if Qureshi put up a fight as some are saying, then I don't think Ancic is in any kind of "trouble".

I wanted Aisam to win, he was so close to doing it! Ancic was playing quite poorly but Aisam was really good and there was no fear. Great stuff! :) I can't see Ancic defending his title, unless he really ups his game.

Nice Come Back Mario

Well Played Qureshi. Quershi is very dangerous on Grass. He beat Rohan Boppana and Prakash Amritraj on Grass in Davis Cup Tie in Mumbai . I'm not suprised by his play.

mario :( why did u struggle so much?


1. because it was his 1st match on grass
2. because he´s suffering from chronic back injury and he´s had exhausting clay court period
3. because his opponent played the match of his life

most important thing is that he˙s trough to the next round

This was a truly outstanding grass court match and it is impossible for anyone who did not watch it to give it an accurate analysis. Aisam played a vintage style of grass court tennis that we sadly don't see any more. He served consistently well, chipped and charged and vollyed superbly. He also has a great looking single handed backhand. Some of his screaming winners off the ground were awesome. Frew Mcmillan said in his commentary for Eurosport that if someone tuned in and learned that over 400 places separated the two players in the rankings and they did not know which player was which,they would have great difficulty in finding out which one was Mario Ancic unless they were told. This is true as Quereshi played like a top twenty player.

I have only seen Quereshi play singles once before and that was at the Bristol Challenger which was also a played on grass.

Before this match, Aisam was best known for making the headlines when he partnered Israel's Amit Noar in doubles at Wimbledon and they won a few rounds. Their partnership garnered attention as a moslem from Pakistan (Quereshi) partnered a jew from Israel (Noar) at the time of the invasion of Iraq. Pakistan doesn't have diplomatic relations with Israel and their doubles partnership was applauded across the world as sport can bring persons of all creeds, colours,religions and beliefs together regardless of their political differences.
They were condemned as traitors to their respective religions by religious fundamentalists. They resumed their doubles partnership at the US Open and I watched their first round doubles match on the Grandstand Court. To my horror, police armed with MACHINE GUNS supervised the match for fear of a terrorist attack!!
It isn't too late for Quereshi to make strides as a singles player even though he is approaching his mid twenties. With his old fashioned stylish brand of grass court tennis, he will win a lot of fans.

Asiam is one hell of a player if he puts his mind to it - very good on grass as well
