Default Mario Ancic will beat Roger Federer...take it to the bank!

I am committing the criminal sin of tennis betting against Roger Federer but you have to face the reality that Roger can't win them all. The reason I like Ancic in this match is because Roger has lost indoors on hardcourt quite a few times in his career and he has been faltering more than usual the last two weeks. He struggled somewhat in Round 1 against Ulihrach, broke only once in Round 2 against Wawrinka and had his hands full in the quarters versus Davydenko. Ancic is reaching the top of his game these days and he has always been a threat to win these indoors. He is 3-0 in Tiebreakers this week and that should be important since I see this hitting TB's each set. Ancic knocked out Henman in impressive fashion in the Quarters and the odds are shockingly doggish for him. He is 1-0 lifetime versus Feds and this is definitely an upset worth some money.

nobody does, but Roger is not at his best this tournament. Ancic shocks the world and sends Roger packing in this one.

I don't know whether it has escaped your notice, but Roger hardly ever is at his best during the early rounds of any tournament. He always has a hard time with Davydenko. He broke Wawrinka three times, btw, and iirc hasn't lost his serve yet.

I'm not saying Ancic can't beat him - he already did in the only pro match they've played - but I wouldn't decide to bet against Fed purely on the form you've "seen" this week.

To bet against Roger is not without risk.
Ancic beat Federer in 2002 but this unique head-tohead is not really representative.
Mario has a game that pleases has roger.
I think that the Swiss is going to win without too many difficulties.

Default Re: Mario Ancic will beat Roger Federer...take it to the bank!

I think Mario has a 40% of chance of winning. Fed is not playing that well and Mario could serve himself out of trouble. BUT, if Tim could break Mario's serve 3 times in 2 sets, I'm sure Fed could set himself up for more breaks than that.

It will be tough but I wouldn't be too surprised if there is an all-croat final.

Incidentally, when was the last time, if ever, there was an all-Croat ATP final? Sjengster?
