Ljubo names DC team for Croatia

it's gonna be: Ljubicic, Ancic, Karlovic, Cilic
with Cerkovic as a fifth player/hitting partner (because he's a lefty) and Andrej Tonjec as a coach

Ivan is gonna have a meeting with the entire team in Zagreb during the Zagreb Indoors

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Me too.Yep Ancic won one live match but hey what was his opponent's ranking?Out of 200. He can't win other singles in DC at all,so I would trust a new Croatian player and give him a chance too!

Stan The Paris Man

Cheer for: Wawrinka Murray Ljubicic Gonzalez Mahut Nishikori Soderling Tipsarevic Mathieu Monfils Muller Tsonga Berdych Acasuso O.Rochus Kiefer...

Re: Ljubo names DC team for Croatia

ivan will not drop mario
they have been trough a lot together
mario playes for dc team since he was 16
he will only leave him out in dead rubber or if he was injured
mario has earned respect as a real dc player
he didn´t back out even once ( look at all the ˝stars´ that are picking ties ), he always plays, he is dedicated, he won davis cup as part of that team
leaving him out would be a blow to the team spirit
ivan trusts and respects him too much to do that

Re: Ljubo names DC team for Croatia

they are using a junior kid? thats like using donald young in the usa.

but its probally like that since they dont have as many top ranked players as the USA does and that kid is the no.1 junior at the moment.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

what do you think when ljubičić and ančić debuted for dc team

i mean what is better
for 200th world player to warm the bench, or young player who is btw great prospect and would only prospect trough whole week with top tennis players
that is called logic, or investment in the future

and yes, we don´t have the base like us, but we have beaten usa in usa, and won the davis cup
we´ll take that, thank you very much

our tennis pool is big enough so we have 3 top 100 players per year
not bad for 4.5 million country with zero or little investment in tennis
maybe one small part of success is that we bring in young players to the big stage very soon
