Ancic ready to take on the best again

May 19, 2008

When Mario Ancic began his 2008 campaign in February ranked a lowly 135 after a series of illnesses and injuries, playing at a Grand Slam event looked a distant proposition.

But just three months later, the Croatian will arrive at Roland Garros on the verge of re-entering the Top 40 in the rankings.

    Ancic's last trip to the claycourt major was in 2006 when he reached the quarter-finals before being beaten by world number one Roger Federer in a high-quality match.

    At the end of that year, the Croatian was ranked ninth and it seemed that he would be a threat to the world's best players on any surface.
