Wimbledon 1R: Llodra (32) vs Ancic

The most unfair 1st round match for me. :sad: Mario deserved a better draw, the same goes to Llodra which could be upset easily here...
Mario leads H2H 1-0, he beat Michael in Hertogenbosch 2005 :)

I don't know, let's say Llodra in 5 :rocker2:

Is that serious? Mario in 3 (level of 'tiredness' half a set).

I hope Mario in 3, but it will be difficult, Llodra is a good player on grass...
Lets go Mario!

with regard to Llodra's health: Ancic in 3

I love Mario, but this won't be easy. The draw could've been better, could've been worse, Mario in 4.

BLCOKBUSTER match. I hope for 5 tiebreakers and a Super Mario performance.

Oh, I didnt know about Llodra's bad health :o

In that case Mario surely has the edge...however I hope Llodra feels good and makes a great serve&volley fight :worship:

with regard to Llodra's health: Ancic in 3He's been having this problem with his shoulder for a long time now, it didn't prevent him from winning 3 matches in RG. It seems mostly an issue when he has to play too many matches in a row, that's why he preferred to withdraw from his last tournaments - to be sure to be fine for Wimbledon.
But it's not gotten worse according to his interviews, it's just a precautionary measure.

Very tough match to predict, and Ancic also isn't playing his best. I thought he could do a lot on grass, but he lost to Ferrer. Hopefully Mario but I'm pretty sure it won't be in 3 sets.
