andrea: what do you think about Umag
alex: its a nice tournament. im first time here,only the rain this year is pretty bad. but i like it,the sea and a nice atmosphere
B.z.A.: Is Russian Mafia involved in your huge and fast jump on ATP list ?
..tenniss..: What do you think about next match against Juan Carlos Ferrero ?
i'm your fan,great match yesterday !
alex: thank you.. he has done very good this year on the clay court tournaments,i think it will be a tough match,i need to serve well to make him have problems on his serve..
lori: Is this your first time in croatia? do you like it here? And what about girls?
alex: Yes its my first time,its nice here, good club, good turnament and organization. the girls are good here,but i have a girlfriend,so not partying much))
David: Hello,Alex....can you tell me who is for you the best Croatian tennis player ?
alex: thats a tough question,Croatia got a lot of players in the past years,and all of them are always doing well somewhere.. I know Marin Cilic for a long time, he is probably doing the best for now and is still young to get better.
max: you prefer clay, but i'm sure your gameplay can be really interesting on hard courts, what do you think about it?
alex: yes, im working on that a lot.. unfortunately i had knee problems for a long time, so i couldnt do the hard season full enough, but now im better and ready to try my self on the hard courts.
jura: what do you think how far can Ljubo go on this tournament?
alex: oh, its hard for me to say, last time i saw him play was our practise in RG,but he can always do well if he feels his serve.
adrian: will you play on sunday? i hope you will...i'm coming in umag on sunday!!
alex: i hope so too,now im getting ready for Fridays match first)
joe: which girls are prettier - beautiful Croatian ones or gorgeous Ukrainian ones?
alex: for me Ukrainian))) But im not long enough here (in Croatia) to notice
sloven: you are doing really good lately, how far do you think you can go on ATP list?
alex: oh,tough question,in the career my gole is number 1,this year to stay top 50-40
B.z.A.: What is your opinion of Ivan Ljubicic ? Do you like his playing style ?
alex: well i dont, because i like to change the game and a lot of shots, he likes to serve and play agressive, so i can say that i dont like his style. but he does something well and wins, so i guess its not a bad player..)))
