lol i remember when fulham played hadjuk split goran came to watch and was in the press loadsa saying how they were going to beat us! they didn't :lol: sorry i just wanted to mention that coz he's got his footie shirt on and it reminds me :)

lovemario
09-05-2005, 03:24 AM
well of course he said that
wouldn't expect anything else
btw i like hajduk but don't care so much about football, maybe national team

Éowyn
09-05-2005, 03:28 AM
does mario support them to? i always wondered that? they'r ehis home town team i know that much :)

they were a good team actually still we won! we played them and then played dynamo zagreb :lol:

lovemario
09-05-2005, 03:37 AM
yes he does,as you know people in split are characteristic,the love for hajduk is like sacred to them,now idon't think he's a freak fan but he definetly loves it. same as goran,you probably know he was named a member of hajduk and played few minutes at one match after he won wim,that was another dream of his-to play for hajduk

dinamo is 2nd club,it's a big tension between these clubs,you know south and north

Éowyn
09-05-2005, 03:41 AM
yeah i know that much it's very much like me and fulham, and goran playing for them always made me like tem which is why i was pleased when we played them and he came to the match lol but i wasn't actually positive if mario was too i always assumed he supported them as it's not like here where theres 92 clubs to choose from, but i was never positive

lovemario
09-05-2005, 03:48 AM
i think goran is a big fan of fulham,he is of one eng.club but i forgot which one i'm almost positive it is fulham,i read about it somewhere

Éowyn
09-05-2005, 03:51 AM
well were the only english club split have played so that could be possible but if you have an article or something that says that i would love to know coz thats my team i have fulham tattood on my ankle :)

great news ! :) i guess it's good for the team, isnt it ? Mario and Ivan and, i assume, all the other guys like him so much, they must be pretty happy to know that goran will be here with them before and during the tie, just to give them advices and support ... :cool:

well, it seems quite logical after all ... after the summer in the USA, he may be pretty happy to come back at home to see friends and family (and for the first time lil niece ;) ) :)

So I think he's not even going there to support the team because of his treatment. And Kolya is doubtful too I guess. So great chance for Croatia to get to the final. :D

completely agree with you and also with JJ :) i've also the feeling mario isnt maybe as funny as goran (but also think no one can be like goran) but still pretty funny, even sometimes on court, making some funny faces ...

http://www.slobodnadalmacija.hr/20050910/sport03.asp (http://http://www.slobodnadalmacija.hr/20050910/sport03.asp)

It's about a press conference from yesterday that mario had with some woman from CTF.
''This is a history match for us,it's an honour for us that Goran will join us too.'' said mario
They asked him about what davydenko said that points were stolen from him when he played against mario in cro,he said that doesn't even remember what happened,but that there will be these kind of provocations trying to affect judges because croatia is a home time''

The funny thing happened when this woman said ''Fortunately mario is already here with us'' and je said ''You mean unfortunately'' (alluding to his early los sin US open) :haha:

Mario Ancic
Ivo Karlovic
Sasa Tuksar
Captain: Niki Pilic

Russia
Nikolay Davydenko
Mikhail Youzhny
Igor Andreev
Dmitry Tursunov
Captain: Shamil Tarpischev

So confirmation that Marat isnt ready to play... :sad: but in the same time it's probably a good thing for Croatia :)

MariaV
09-15-2005, 07:12 AM
:wavey: Hey guys, yep, it's confirmed now that Marat won't play.
From Marat's official site:
14.09.05 Marat Safin will miss Russia's Davis Cup semi-final against Croatia later this month because of injury.

I think a lot will depend on if Kolya's fit enought to play and play well. Will be a tough one anyway sure, and exciting to watch. :)

vero
09-15-2005, 08:06 AM
yeah, agree with you all girls, it will be tough even without Marat...
Like Mario said in the interview, the Russian team is strong, even without Marat : Kolya has played so well so far this year and Youzhny always plays his best game when playing for his country. it will depend on who's in better form, who's more focused and more eager to win... and, like Maria, i also think that will depend on Kolya's form...

hey Lovemario :wavey: glad to see you again :) :kiss:

i heard that during the first round tie against France last year, karlovic went out friday night till 3 or 4 o'clock in the saturday morning, and that's why he wasnt really fresh and ready to play the doubles ? do you know if it's true ? :aplot:

the conflict between Karlovic and Pilic began in Argentina 02', karlovic came to Arg 4 days later and Pilic punished him with 1000$. in france karlovic and Karanusic went out untill 4am because Karlovic thought that he will not play doubles. After Olympic games Karlovic refused to play in DC because of Pilic interview when he said that Karlovic returns as a grandma nd he is not good as he is tall.

:kiss: :kiss: Thanks,you're really sweet for noticing I wasn't here,unfortunately now that school will start I won't be able to be here always,but mario is always with me! :lol:

This is what I know too,and that karlovic complained that all players in the team don't have same treatment.
Pilic always said that he can come back but karlovic wanted him to call and apologize for what he said,neither wanted to let go and finally they sorted things out in wimbledon this year. Croatia needs him cause he's the best third player,not like cro has a lot great players to chose,anyways I'm glad he's back even though I think his chances of playing are really small since pilic has great confidence in Ivan and Mario,and for doubles too,they make such a great team,but karlo will be there to celebrate with them!!! Oh I hope that!

yep, same for me dear :hug: , holiday has gone away now and that means less time for posting here, but for me too, there's always thoughts for tennis and Mario and you all in my heart and my mind :)



and i agree with you and JJ about karlo ... i think it's important for the team that everybody feels comfortable and feels he belongs to the team. Even if Ivan and Mario play in singles and doubles and karlo and Sasa Tuksar dont play, a dc team cant be formed by only two guys ... Ivan and Mario need to know they can rely on team mates if necessary, it's better for their confidence :) and i know it's stupid to say that, but dc is a team competition, so a dc tie is always won by the whole team, even if some of the players never play during the weekend...

Éowyn
09-18-2005, 10:54 PM
well as i'm not a huge fan of ivan! and i am a fan of ivo he's such a lovely guy to talk to! even though he really struggles to do so! i have alot of time for him! and it's nice to see him involved again! pls i like when he plays doubles with mario! not that it happens often but i think they're pair up well :)

lovemario
09-19-2005, 09:07 AM
I see all that you say,but I don't think karlo will play any crucial match at least for now,cause no matter how it sounds,this team is about Ivan and Mario,cause if captain would put ivo to play some match rather than mario or ivan it wouldn't make sense cause there's too big difference between them,unless one of them gets injured. :rolleyes:

vero
09-19-2005, 04:03 PM
completely agree with you dear lovemario :kiss: Ivan and Mario are definitely the best two players of the team for singles and they play so well together, at least when playing for Croatia, so even for the doubles the captain will certainly select the two ;)

lovemario
09-19-2005, 04:29 PM
Mario talking again! ;)

Article says that mario is totally fired up for this upcoming match,how he put aside everything else for this,including how he cancelled both Beijing and Bankok,and he brought his coach who trained with him last week to be hundred percent ready,and from Sunday with the team.
''The most important is that we have confidence,cause then doesn't matter who's on the other side of the net.''
-Will it be different for him now to play in front of his audience?
''Of course it will be easier for me,now it's something known to me,I felt that people like and support us,the atmosphere against romania was amazing.In this moment my holly goal is:to enter the final.Davis cup was always sth special for me,it's what I've lived for and sacrifise is normal.
I'm really happy that goran is back,to have him on our side is great,it's another reason for selfconfidence and optimism. I want to say that it's important how we feel,and that was never a problem.I see that ticket sell is going great and again we'll have that great support.'' :bounce:

yes I know how much it helped them in olympics even if mario was injured they got to win a medal ;)

vero
09-19-2005, 07:56 PM
:) It looks like they really love to play for Croatia (whether it's for Olympics or for DC) and that playing for the country give them even more motivation and determination. Like in the doubles for instance, even when the match is very very close (and that situation happened very often), they always find somewhere in their heart and/or head the extra determination to manage to win, as if playing for the country give them more desire, more energy, more passion, and more heart to give their best on the court :) and reading this article reinforces this feeling ;)

lovemario
09-19-2005, 08:11 PM
They were in that situation quite few times as you know,and last time against romania they were two sets to one and a break down,I really thought they would lose,but then :eek: :cool:

Every interview that mario gives,he always emphasizes how important to him is to play for croatia,that he actually likes tennis as individual sport cause then he cant blaim on anyone when he is losing,but dc and olympics is different thing and then everyone gives all they got :worship:

vero
09-19-2005, 09:51 PM
:lol: yeah, sometimes they manage to turn round incredible and quite desparate situation :)

omg, talking about this, i feel excitement and tension increase more and more ... i'm really looking forward this encounter now :lol:

I see all that you say,but I don't think karlo will play any crucial match at least for now,cause no matter how it sounds,this team is about Ivan and Mario,cause if captain would put ivo to play some match rather than mario or ivan it wouldn't make sense cause there's too big difference between them,unless one of them gets injured. :rolleyes:

no i think you mis understand me dear i am not saying i expect ivo to play i just think it is nice to have him there, and that he is there for if anything does happen

mario played well, but today the way davydenko played he would have taken anyone out! i can't stand davydenko's attitude but his game you can't argue with he's the only person i have seen that can lob both mario and ivo and plays some of the best passing shots around.

mario did well but davydenko did better! lumberjack did well in his game! if they can win the doubles i suspect davydenko will probably take out ivan! it could all go down to mario and the last rubber!

we'll see though!

ajmo tomorrow

:p Yes dear ivica ancic was commentator for croatian television,and ivica ancic has a voice veeery similar to mario's and: I'm watching mario; I'm hearing mario - I'm dying :angel:

I expected to hear more juicy stuff abt mario from him,but he said very little :awww:

I'm just sorry mario couldn't beat davydenko,he was very disappointed cause he wasn't able to win in his town :sad:

Pilic said that he would organize that match for them,but goran is not thrilled with the idea and said he wont play it, I think it's stupid like he has to play for anything,if he wants to call him to the team,just call him. It is kinda unfair to tuksar,but goran is goran ;)

Maybe mario told him not to say anything abt him :lol: , he did say he admires how mario can after couple hours of hard practise come back to their room(when on tour before they were sharing room) and take the book and study - my smart boy :kiss: (btw the atp video abt mario mentioned nothing of his law school, I think they should have :( , maybe cause it's so rear for a tennis player to go to college)

And that davydenko,now found the time to play the best indoor match. And then mario hits the ball so soft sometimes, and how can he be surprised when it comes back twice as harder, and then ivan made davydenko look hepless with his hitting so mario's game with davydenko seemed worse even :sad:

yes, i'm :sad: too about that and i agree it's a bit worrying, but maybe we cant really compare Mario's loss and Ivan's win against Davydenko, not that i want to give Mario excuses, but Mario and Ivan dont really have the same game and maybe Mario's game suits more to Davydenko than Ivan's :shrug:



btw when I asked you whether you would watch it or 'watch it',I was refering of watching the scoreboard,see I call it 'watching' when I stare at the scoreboard

What can I say, mario has put a high standard for everyone else as he poseses all those qualities :D :p



I didn't mean to compare his game to Ivan's, they do have very different play style and have to give credits to davydenko's play on friday, I meant in general he sometimes hits the ball too soft,and while it looks gracious with a great volley :worship: , it's not so in other situations, he just seems too gentle with it (it's ok to be like that to your girlfriend, but not to a tennis ball :aplot: )

i didn't say i didn't want goran to play! obviosuly i wnat him involved! but everyone seems to be the missing the point! if goran gets in it is not just sasa at risk! it is mario! coz if goran wants to play singles pilic will let him!

i don't knwo who it was that said davydenko is the weakest top 10 player! but please i suggest you go back and watch davydenkos performances over the year and then rethink that statement coz that was almost as dumb as davydenkos statement about the line judges.

davydenko may not be the most popular top 10 player but he is certianly not teh weakest the guy has a lot of talent and as i said on friday even federer would have had trouble with him the way he played! it is not a bad thing to lose so long as you play well! and mario did he didn't do anythging wrong he kept fighting he took him to 4 sets when everyone (including me) expected him to collapse in the 3rd. Mario can be proud of teh way he played! davydenko did not play teh same way against ivan and i think if mario had been playing sundays davydenko instead of fridays he woudl have won

but do not say that davydenko is a weak player he is anything but! he is top 10 for a reason

I'm sorry,but if you believe that pilic would put goran,you're definitely missing the point here!
Pilic is a man of such experience(won dc three times) and would never give advantage to goran on mario NOW,simply cause mario is playing on the tour and goran isnt.

First of all,the point of his comeback is not to take over the team, but as a thank for everything that he has done!
Second,goran knows in what kind of shape he is and that he couldn't manage a possible 5 setter(or could but who would risk that),and now you think that he would risk the trophy(possible trophy) just to prove he can play??!

Actually I know 44-23 wins,semifinal RG,quarterfinal AO and so on… I saw on dc and knew from before, so dont say I should check it,I know enough dear

And I said I THINK IN MY OPINION HE'S ONE OF THE WEAKEST TOP 10 PLAYERS!
I never said it's a fact and never said he has no talent, its my opinion and dont have to justify it.
So which of these you find him better of: Federer? Nadal? Hewitt? Roddick? Safin? Nalbandian? Coria?.......
