:) Even 21 of 22 in a row because match against Malisse was before matches which you introduce.
What would you like to know DM, does it a specific record?
I don't know but for sure this is a great Mario's achievement from mental side. Many of these matches were very close, in tree occasions Mario lost 2nd set after wasting MP (Baghdatis, Serra, Ramirez-Hidalgo) and then he won a match - this is really difficult :yeah: But maybe this is characteristic for Croats ;) Ivanisevic also won many matches in career after wasting opportunities in the second set.
Ancic in the previous year won 2 of 2 in five-setters as well, so he won 22 of 24 matches when a match went to the deciding set.

Yeah, but i was talking about whole 2006. And yeah, i forgot to ask a question, and i meant to ask that question which you already answered you don't know ;) But probably Federer has better record :)

Ah! Good job Ancic. I'm a large Ancic fan because of his huge serve @@. Why doesn't he become a more serve and volley player?
