Marseille Final: Who will Win Mario Ancichoke or Arnaud "Lackey" Clement?

Who will win this unexpected Marseille final?

The organisers must be happy a Frenchie is in the final and it wouldn't be the one they expected and Clement has a huge chance to win against Ancic who has lost finals to illuminaries such as Wayne Arthurs, Moodie and Dupuis when a huge favourite.

As George said, Mario has lost worse than that but i hope he prevails, otherwise Clement will believe himself to be the incarnation of the Greek God Apollo :scared:

Ancic will crush Clement like he did in Adelaide this year (6:0 6:2)

6:1 6:3 this time.

As a matter of course you have to expect Ancic's level will drop in the final. Clement's ability to retrieve should also frustrate Ancic who will have to hit more shots to to end points. I think it will go 3 but I like Clement's chances as I think the French crowd will also intimidate Ancic. If Ancic was not such a headcase you would have to favour him.

I tend to think the game has passed Clement by a bit but in tennis you never know when things are going to go your way.

I guess Clement in 3.Ancic doesn't have a good record in final and Clement gets crowd support.I always think Frenchman plays extra well in front of his countymen :eek: - even the biggest choker in here seems better too. :o

This isn't a 1st round in Adelaide - a final in your opponents home country and a long history of shaking in the big moments - I don't see Ancic being that together with so much on the line. Mario's got the game as he proved in Adelaide but not the rest as he has proved on countless other occasions. He could pull it out but dominate? I highly doubt it.

Mario is not the "old Mario" that would totaly chocke in the finals.... I expect a good fight...

Please do it this time, Ancic! :scared:

I'm predicting Ancic in three!!
(but my predictions normally suck :( but still, don't worry Ancic fans, when I'm predicting in three, I still can be wrong and Ancic can win in two, so I don't jinx him I hope ;) )

As much as I don't like Clement, he is at least 2 steps above the guys that Ancic has lost to in finals.

Just hope Mario can make it 2-5 in finals.

At 5'9 he would be more like a miniature reproduction don't you think?

Where did the new one come from and how come he wasn't able to get down to Australia?

It w be great for La Cle to win this title after beating Rafa -- very fitting. ;) ALLEZ, LA CLE!

[Mario already has a title this year and he's still young... ]

I say Ancic in 3 but it would be hilarious to me if Clement won, so go Frenchie :cool:

Ancic will take the 1st set and will go some breaks up in 2nd but Clement will win in 3.

if ancic wins, not only will this be a great week, but it will prove that he is not as much of a choker as before

I always think Frenchman plays extra well in front of his countymen :eek:
That didn't seem to help Seb against Mario :sad: ... and Seb is generally a better player than Arnaud.

But I'm still going to pick Arnaud to win the final... half because I think he will, half because I want him to!

I think its a bit of a toss up. They are both not the most consistent players. But of course I will be rooting for Arnaud. allez!!

Ancic better win this one, what's the use of beating Ivan if your going to lose to Clement.

Good Luck

It's 30-19 to Ancic in the votes.

This means Clement will probably win.

ancic + finals = :scared:

if ancic wins , all of marcos's 06 losses have been to the tournament winner.
