Default Battle of the Styles: Henman vs Ancic

Uh...Does Ancic have any chance at stopping the Henman hurrah??? These two have never played before. I've never seen Ancic play, but hopefully if he's a baseliner like Mark, he comes with his A-game.

Ancic serve and volleys I believe, but I'm not sure!
Anyway, I think Henman will win in 4 sets!

If Ancic can beat Federer, he can certainly beat Henman. I hate to expect too much from Tim after he's won such a big match; there's so much more pressure when he's supposed to win (as in Bercy final against Pavel last year).

Another Serve-Volley type for Henman (also with a huge serve). So i hope he got good practice with Mark's Serve-Volleying. Should be interesting.

Ancic is pure serve and volleyer serves really big, its going to tough for Tim to beat his serve.
I think Tim is going to win in 4 tough sets.

I think this match could be tougher for Tim than his Round of 16 against Philippoussis. We'll see if the Brit is prepared.

Default Re: Battle of the Styles: Henman vs Ancic

Ancic deffinetly has a chance to knock of Tim. Tim has soooo much pressure on him. Ancic played a relatively short 4th round match while Tim was made to work hard against Mark. However, that being said I think Henman will win.

Default Re: Battle of the Styles: Henman vs Ancic

It would be nice if this were a battle of the styles, but Ancic serves and volleys on grass. He played this way at Rosmalen and at Queens.

I liked the look of him in those two tournaments, and I do think he has his chances against Henman. I also think he has chances against Andy as well if he should meet Andy in the semis.

Anyway! we've got a whole day to wait for these exciting quarterfinal matches. It's difficult for me to wait.

Default Re: Battle of the Styles: Henman vs Ancic

it is a battle of styles bec Henman has been playing more baseline tennis lately. the change has been shockingly effective. with Annacone's help, he should beat Ancic in 4.

I definetly believe 2004 Henman is a better player than 2002 Federer. However, I think Mario Ancic is a good enough player to put Henman into trouble, but I'd be surprised if he defeated Tim.

I think Tim will continue to torture the British fans by stretching this out to 5 sets and forcing them to bite their finger nails down to their knuckles! I can't help but laugh out loud during the Henman broadcasts this week as the fans chew on their flags and shake their heads when he misses a point. SO MUCH PRESSURE!

Who told Tim to serve and volley off second serves???? not smart. Henman's got a better ground game than slutty-ass Ancic, so start being more patient before you come to net
