Krajinovic focuses on getting to next level

BRADENTON — Nick Bollettieri watches Filip Krajinovic race around the court and the legendary tennis coach can almost see the future by recalling the past.

"He runs down the balls and moves extremely well, just like Andre Agassi did," Bollettieri said Sunday, conjuring up memories of one of his most famous students.

The comparisons don't stop there. The backhand and the way Krajinovic steps in and hits the ball early are more reminders of Agassi's amazing abilities.

"He stands close to the baseline and his two-handed backhand is very much like Andre," Bollettieri said.

So is his potential, if you listen to tennis insiders. Brad Gilbert, who for a time coached Agassi on the professional tour, is one of many in the tennis world predicting a bright future for the 16-year-old player who arrived in Bradenton from Serbia to become Bollettieri's latest protégé.

Potential is one of the reasons Krajinovic was quickly snapped up by marketing giant IMG. It is his shot-making ability, charisma and charm that contributes to off-court deals -- including one with Nike -- that makes him one of the richest 16-year-old tennis players on the planet.

Deals or no deals, praise or no praise, Krajinovic's only worry is how to get to the next level.

"The thing about Filip is he just wants to work, work, work on his game," said his agent, Olivier Van Lindonk. "I have never met a kid who is so hungry and focused on becoming the top player in the world, not just somebody ranked 90-something."

To get to the top you have to start near the bottom, so Krajinovic has been toiling at small events in out-of-the-way places. This week he comes back to his adopted home and steps up a level after getting a wild card into this week's $50,000 Hurricane Open at the Racquet Club at El Conquistador.

The strength of this week's event, which gets under way this morning, took a hit when Donald Young and John Isner each declined to play in the tournament. Those defections opened up the draw for others, and Krajinovic is eager to take his next step up the ladder with his first appearance in the main draw of a Challenger event.

"It is big time," said Krajinovic, who easily draws a crowd to the court with his creative shots and boyish good looks. "Right now I am ready."

It's a big opportunity for the player who comes from the same landlocked Central European country as Jovak Djokovic, who won in Rome on Sunday to move close to the No. 2 ranking in the world.

Krajinovic comes into the tournament on somewhat of a roll. A week ago Krajinovic broke new ground in a $10,000 Futures event by winning four matches in qualifying to reach the main draw and then getting to the quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Greg Jones. The immediate reward for his first wins in the main draw at that level was his first two ATP ranking points.

"I feel much better now to get some points," Krajinovic said. "I was always so nervous playing in the first round to try and just get a (ranking) point. Now I feel really good."

He is quickly learning to handle his nerves. A little more than a month ago Krajinovic got a call to head to Key Biscayne to serve as a practice partner. When he got there he discovered that he would be hitting with Roger Federer on a practice court surrounded by tennis fans. Then Federer suggested that they play a set.

"I said, 'Please, no sets. I am going to lose 6-0,'" Krajinovic said. "I was so nervous. It was tough. The first two balls I hit were out. I was scared. I couldn't play."

Krajinovic quickly recovered, led Federer 4-3 and was serving to go up 5-3. The world's top-ranked player then took his game to another level to win the set but it was a great experience for Krajinovic, who routinely hits with professional players who come to the IMG Academies for practice.

One of those players is Tommy Haas, who has been ranked as high as No. 2 in the world and has traveled a similar route that Krajinovic is taking now. Haas was 17 and had no ranking when he got a wild card into a Challenger-sized tournament in his home country of Germany. He made it all the way to the final.

"He is still young and it may take some time for him to make a noise on the tour," Haas said about Krajinovic. "But the way he is playing, if he keeps it up and stays healthy he has all the tools to become a good player.

"The next two years are very important for him."

In Krajinovic's eyes, so are the next few days.

He has quality for more than 3rd round, but ok, his 1st GS appearance, this Russian guy a year and 9 months older, and maybe he was a bit tired from his previous tournament that he won in Charleroi. Plus he survived Basic in that :eek: 1st match

Agree. Probably way too tired to make a bigger damage in this years RG slam. Won the Asthrid bowl so he couldn't rest enough for a few days. He went the distance in this match, fought good judging by the result but couldn't pull it off unfortunately.

What a shame really. Bunch of favourites are also out of the draw.

Good luck Filip. Keep going.

After that he will come to play futures in Serbia. :)

If he does good in Roehampton, for example makes the quarters there or better he could get a special invitation to the Wimbledon junior main draw. If not he'll play the qualies. He's confident now and ready to make the challenge on grass. Let's see how he does.

Filip lost 3:6 3:6

I saw the 1st set, and till 2:1 in the second, then they switched to Roger and Marat.

Congrats Filip, great result for his 2nd GS appearance :)
He played fantastic at moments, but also made some errors...It's a year difference between him and Grigor and I guess the Bulgarian is more experienced, and from what I saw, much stronger for sure.

Bravo Filip, good luck in the rest of the season :clap2: :hug:

Tomic lost too

I thought Krajinovic fans would like to know that Filip got his first ATP top 350 win yesterday, although it wasn't in a men's tournament. :)

He was playing Eysseric in the European Summer Cup and it appears that he won. This is easily the best win of his career so far.

http://www.tenniseurope.org/pdf/junior/Summer%20Cups/2008/Results/B18/Final/Day1.pdf

The last set score isn't shown, I know. :p But the other results can only lead us to the fact that he was the winner.



You can track his progress all week out here - http://www.tenniseurope.org/JuniorTennis/Jun_Te_-European-Summer-Cups_18-Under-Boys.aspx

Unfortunately he lost to 1-6,4-6. He was down 2-5 in the second, raised his level to reach 4-5, but Setkic kept his calm to serve out the match. Philip is more skilled player obviously and should have won a match like this. But that's tennis sometimes.

I feel he'll play better in the next futures in Subotica. He sensed pressure here in his hometown. The seats were packed all these days although the weather was so hot it was almost unbearable.

Filip Krajiovic vs no.1 seed Attila Balazs(HUN)


The match started at about 1:00 pm. Filip lost 7-6,6-7,1-6.
Tough conditions, dry air, high temperature. Great conditions for unforced errors which Filip made a lot.

The first set was close. From the first game I realized what kind of a player Ballasz is. The one that exploits your weaknesses, hits with extreme top spin using dreaded moonballs very often. Drop shots as well. A real clay courter, boring as hell. I almost booed to him. I didn't but I wanted to. Filip played as always. Beautifuly, agressive and with class.

Ballasz made an early break and led the first set untill Filip broke at 3 all. From that moment on they held their serve till the tie break. Filip saved four set points to take the first set 7-6(8-6).

Filip was the front runner in the second set, in which both players broke each other several times. Filip was again the one that attacked constantly throughout the set and although Ballasz defended well he was on his knees. Filip showed some of his magic repertoire to fire up the crowd which knew to appreciate a good point.

The problems started at 5-4 when Filip was serving for the match which he did terribly for some reason. I know it's a big problem to serve out the match sometimes for top ten players. Filip sprayed 3 unforced errors within a minute. They got to the tie break which Ballasz won fairly easy 7-6 (7-2).

I never recognized Filip in the third. He practically surrendered in the third which was over in 20 minutes. Continued to make tons of errors unable to find good pace again. His body language was saying as hough his thoughts were still in that second set at 5-4 serving for the match.

A pity. But then again collecting point by point, gaining experience like this one. Losing the match he should have won. It can not be done differently in tennis. If he can find out what went wrong whith his game, this loss won't count.

Better luck next time Fico. I didn't get to talk to him because I had to leave right away. Bit if I do i will post the comment here.
