Mate pavic won the junior wimbledon doubles title last year and made the final of the zagreb indoors doubles competition pairing with dodig.Even though he's young it looks at this point like he might find most of his success in doubles but i dont see anything wrong with that. Singles wise i think he could reach top 50 at

Coric is good, probably croatia's next big hope after cilic and i think he'll be better then pavic
thanks for the info. if I'm getting this right, Pavic is more of a double player. as you said absolutely nothing wrong with that. It seems to me that there are so many talented players from former Yugoslavia. I hope people don't get offended by what I said. Serbs, Croats, same thing to me...

Nope, that was against Tipsarevic in Miami last year. He lost 3-6 6-7.

I've never been a fan of breaking the rackets. Throw one in the stands if you don't feel like using it anymore, and heal your frustrations elsewhere.
But yes, he should be showing more emotions. Apparently he did gain some muscle during the time he didn't play.

Why should we? He's 23, hasn't done anything, lost easily against Haase in his only ATP level match, and we know how Haase is these days.

Re: Generation change – Croatian tennis

mesaros really has the potential, but he lacks maybe motivation or concentration...but he has the potential to be there. and is better than 15 y.o. guys who achieved nothing at all yet

You picked the wrong guy to cheer for. Mesaros will never do anything, he's too busy modelling.
Coric will have a big career, wait and see.

What is it he should've achieved being barely 15? Mesaros on the other hand is already 23, so he definitely doesn't have a better chance to make a greater career.

Re: Generation change – Croatian tennis

i thought skugor would be solid top 100 atleast. Nothing great but atleast give croatia another top 100 presence. However he has done nothing really

do you know how many 15 y.o. like him have we had last years that didnt achieve anything? plenty
its more probably right now that mesaros will have a better career, trust me (but obviously, who knows)

Re: Generation change – Croatian tennis

Bring back Mario Ancic. How old is he? Still in his twenties, I think.
