Re: Ivanisevic is coming back!

Thanks for the link. Now if you'd care to translate it for the selected few among us who dion't happen to speak Croat, that'd be even greater. No way is Goran so desperately in need of money that he has to return to the atp.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Ivanisevic is coming back!

lol @ the pic in any case, very Wimby-style

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Ivanisevic is coming back!

bad move.

he would be more likely to make much more money out of guest commentating or something than he will from coming back.

i don't really view goran as the type of the player who is likely to make a successful comeback. especially when you consider he only really had one good tournament in the last few years of his career.

"Financijski"

It's about money, alright
That's all I could understand

If it's true it's a big story

Re: Ivanisevic is coming back!

It doesn't say anywhere in that article that he's gonna return to atp level tennis. I also found an article in Belgian newspaper too and it just says that he's in financial problems due to poor investments and corruption and that playing the tour of champions is helping him to keep his head above water. I would translate the both articles but I have an exam tomorrow, gotta hit the books.

Re: Ivanisevic is coming back!

It doesnt say atp level tennis, it basically says he has conducted business with crooks and "when you swim with sharks, youre gonna get eaten."

Also mentions his property being over 2 1/2 years overdue, because he hasnt gone and visited split in over 6 months.

Basically hes lost everything but will continue to make an income from tennis.

I'm broke, says Ivanisevic

Zagreb - Former Wimbledon champion and tennis legend Goran Ivanisevic has admitted in an interview published on Wednesday that he is facing bankruptcy after all his investments in his native Croatia failed.

"Every thing in which I invested money in Croatia went wrong," Ivanisevic told the Globus weekly, adding that it was partly due to the corruption in the country.

In the past seven years, Ivanisevic, who won Wimbledon in 2001, has invested money in construction businesses in Croatia, but apparently lost a lot of money.

"I don't belong to any (political) party, I'm not in any lobby or pressure group. I have not bribed anyone, and in construction business in Croatia, you cannot even build a house for a dog if don't give bribes", the 34-year-old told Globus.

He also said the only way to avoid bankruptcy is to continue to play tennis on Senior tour.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
