    He made a short comeback a few years ago and, if I recall correctly, he had already graduated from law school in Croatia at that point. I guess his master of laws from Colombia qualifies him to take the bar exam in N.Y.

    With a law degree and his connections, he could likely earn more as a sports agent/representative than he ever did on the courts.

    I think that's the plan.

    From the article:

    Had things worked out differently, Mario Ancic, the Croatian lawyer, would have spent the past two weeks grinding it out on the hardcourts at the United States Open. Instead, he has been holed up in the Columbia law library, poring over his contracts casebook.

    “I’m trying to be prepared for every class,” Ancic said. “The professors here use the Socratic method of teaching, so they can call on you at any time.”

    I never enjoyed the Socratic method in law school.
