Did anyone watch this match? How did Rafa play? I think beating Ancic in 4 on grass means a lot. This clearly shows that Rafa can play on grass as well. After some improvements in his serve and volley he can definitely be a contender in this circuit also. What are your thoughts?

I didn't see this match :sad:

But if I were Ancic, I'd be glad right now the only way to meet Rafa would be in the final this year :p

Rafa is the first guy to reach 3rd round at 16 years old since Boris Becker

Indeed. Ancic played a very bad match, also some lucky net cords helped apart from a couple of bad bounces on key points against him. So typical...

we wont see that again anytime soon ;)
on other surfaces yes, but not on grass. however, i think rafael with his GREAT work ethic, one day could be very dangerous player on grass.

Ancic did play an awful match but that match does show that Nadal a very young age could move and hit on grass so you never know what is going to happen this Wimbledon. I do expect him to have some good results in the near future at the Big W. In fact, other than Gasquet, I don't think there is anyone that really worries him.

This says nothing.

Both players have done alot of growing.

Ancic finally won the big one.

It was a terrible competition though.

Can't judge his Wimby.

Nadal, is coming off FO win.

Can't say he's the best on grass.

Not even top 10 yet, IMO.

I like Ancic if they meet
