There is no play at all in Umag today, so I guess we won't know til OOP is announced. I doubt there are streams though - they rarely show doubles do they? :sad:

3rd on center court. First match starts at 5pm. :) And it is on the live video list of betfair though I don't think they'll show doubles match. :sad:

OT : Cavic just won in 50m butterfly breaking the previous championship record. :p

Fun is the reason why they play there. Marko is 'unusable'.

How come:scratch:

There was no play at all in Umag today because of a big railway disaster in Croatia in which many were injured and some killed :sad: So they made today a National Day of Mourning and the tennis was cancelled as a mark of respect.

He was born in August 1991 according to the ATP site, so I guess that makes him 18 in a few weeks. I feel sorry for him actually - to have a famous elder brother who excels in your own chosen profession, and then hear people always singing the praises of your little brother (Djole), must be hard for him. I'm sure he'll never make a really top Player, but he could probably make a living at it on the Futures/Challengers circuit I guess - or maybe as a doubles's specialist? The only time I ever saw him play was in Belgrade this year, so I don't know so much about him, - but I didn't think he was that bad :shrug:

I have to go now anyway - I'm being nagged for being online too much tonight :rolleyes: See you all tomorrow sometime I expect :kiss:
