    I just love his game. All court, plays smart and doesnt try to rip winners at bad times, is fun to watch, does it with finesse and hustle. Its fun to watch his points, no?

    I love him too, for all of the above reasons, a pleasure to watch. He isn't really starting off this year too well, but I definitely think he'll be making more of an impact later on.

    If he played with a 1HBH, he would look much more better. :p

    I remember 2-3 years ago when he was arguably the best Serve Volley player in the game.

    Now he seems to stay at the back a bit too much when he has a fantastic reach, great hands, and a monster serve.

    I feel his game would be better if he predominantly serve volleyed and used his baseline game as the variation instead of his volleys.

    He seems to not be playing to his strengths as much as I would like to see.

    didn't he used to use a 1 handed backhand?

    Recently at the AO against Roddick, I thought it was the first time i've seen him using 2 handed backhand.

    I think it has to do with some photo of him that was on tw website...with a bandana. I don't think he looks like karate kid either.

    And I agree....his volleys are awesome, he should use them more, like Fena pointed out. Ljubicic is slowly fading......I guess soon it will be Ancic's time to become #1 Cro player.
