Ancic d. Mertinak 7-6(1) 6-3 6-4.
Ancic served big, and had too much experience for Mertinak on the big points. Michal tried his best, but it was unrealistic to expect him to have a high percentage chance of winning this match.
I feel bad for Dominik, playing so many unbelievable matches and to be short by 1 win. Shit happens though, and I am so very proud of the Slovak Davis Cup team.
