Not sure I agree. Roddick was rolling for the first set and a half against Ancic, then the rain delay until the next day. Ancic came back and promptly broke Roddick and won like the next four games in a row along with the 2nd set. I'd say the rain delay helped Ancic stay in the match and push it to four sets.
