Simon played well in the second and until 2-3 in the third but in the first and at the end of the third he was really playing poorly

Super Mario strikes again..well done big man, looks like this fast indoors hard suits him

According to posts on his thread, Simon suffers from back problems. Maybe that contributed to the defeat.

Wee~ good play from Ancic. 1st set was horrible to watch though filled with UEs.

yeah very good play ancic,briliant play....watch simon 's first 6 or 7 break points.....they all have something in common ....no matter if it was a first or a second serve from ancic,simon missed the return every time...so he missed 7 returns in a row on break points....strange,isn't it?
in the 3rd set ancic looked tired and he should be because he played final last week in zagreb....how many bp had simon in the 3rd set? none? how many times did an ancic service game went to deuce? none? strange,isn't it?

Some justice was done in the end. Luck was this time on Mario´s side unlike in the Oz. Good result

According to posts on his thread, Simon suffers from back problems. Maybe that contributed to the defeat.

Not a single sign of that during the whole match

Can't say that I was really expecting this result...good work Super Mario. :yeah:

...Youzhny is no push-over, but I wonder how much Mario could be relishing another re-match with Muzza? :devil:

Good result for Mario and on indoor he is always going to have a chance against players like Simon.

You're trying to make us complacent and smug ahead of the match ;) They are too serious guys for that. (Hope this clears any doubts for our coach, if there were any, who'd be playing the singles rubbers, though)

Ancic would've won this 2 and 2 if he'd played aggressively all the way through. He looked sublime when he was flattening the ball out. I'm not sure why he insists on being such a moonballer most of the time nowadays. He should keep it for the clay. Also, his volleys have gone to shit from lack of use.

Good fight from him though. I thought he looked out on his feet at 2-2 in the third.

a lot of floaty returns from his serve waiting to be knocked off on the full with this ancic... its a shame too cos ancic used to look reasonably at home up there at the net...

HEY EVERYONE STOP BEING SO MEAN TO GILLES
it was his back problem and he knew he was playing poorly himself . he even admitted it. so stop critisizing coz he says he wil play in marseille.
