So, Mario is back! Last night or today he arrived back to Zagreb, and now I hope he'll have enough time to prepare and do well in this tournament, 'his' tournament :D

As you probably know Gasquet got one WC, and Marin Ćilic got one too, so we'll see who's the third lucky winner :lol:

So hopefully more news coming up from me soon, since Mario should be seen often this week :p

BTW, Eurosport 2 will show some matches (I know most ppl dont have it :( ), and final will be shown on Eurosport Int'l, so lets pray it'll be a good final :aplot:

Here's the official website:

News :p : last WC is not given yet cause Goran is trying to get some famous name, no one knows who?... That's why Murray kid still hasnt got it,which I hope he wont.

lovemario
01-23-2006, 06:44 PM
Oh yeah, co-director Goran (I saw him :inlove: ) said that he hopes our guys will continue his tradition and someone of them will win,also that they made fast surface-to suit them,and that DC is a finished story for him,so it's for me to :shrug:

what? this tournament is still going on? i thought since its indoor and Ivan is playing, might as well give him the title :rolls: ;) Mario vs Ivan final :yeah:
but Ivan will pull out if he wins the QF match at AO :)

lovemario
01-23-2006, 07:10 PM
:lol: I'd love it if Ivan pulled out cause that'd mean: a) he got very, VERY far at AO and b) he'd leave a way open for Mario :p

Thanks for the fresh news Goga :kiss:
Yes, I assume Mario, and Ivan too (if he plays of course), will be seen a lot this next week in Zagreb, that will be 'their' tournament :) And I also think he's preparing the tournament as well as he can, as next week should be an important one for him (and the week after will certainly be too!!).
And he'll probably be seeded n°4 or 5...

Goran's apparently trying to get someone big for the last wildcard but he hasn't said who :shrug:

As it is now Mario will be seeded 5th since Richard got a wildcard.

Do you guys know if Mario and Ivan will play doubles here together? If they do and take it seriously they should win it but they both have a strong chance in singles so they might sit doubles out.

Well done Mario :dance:

Ok, so here's a small report:
Mario played well, but nothing spectacular, Tursunov also played good, and it was one break in each set that decided. Mario's first serve wasn't working well, he lost his serve on 2nd set mostly cause of not so good 2nd serve, but he still managed to fire 21 aces in the match :D
In the third set, he played really good to break Tursunov's serve and when he led 4-3 with the serve, HRT switced to handball, I was furious :mad: But they showed the end after the game.
There were few funny moments, like when the commentator commented on many young girls in the stands, and he didnt know how to put it, so he said sth like: it's no wonder that there are so many girls with Mario being...elegant young man, real intelectual, likes to read...:haha: sounded so funny, it always os when men give each other compliments :haha:
And then after the match, when Mario was going to give the interview, he didnt see one stair, but thank got he managed his ballance and didnt fell :lol:

And, yes, was cute as usual, in new orange outfit :hearts:

MariaV
02-01-2006, 02:48 PM

lovemario
02-01-2006, 02:54 PM
Yes, of course :angel: but like he almost wanted to say handsome..but I guess felt that it'd sound even funnier :lol: Mario was :inlove:

And yes, he had a great support, of ppl, they cheered real loud for him :)

The stair...clumsy baby :p thank God, he recovered in time :lol:

http://bestsmileys.com/signs7/25.gifWhy can't he ever get some luck??!!:banghead:

I watched only 5 points of 2nd set tiebreak :fiery: :tape:, but it's clear from the stats that he played well, he didn't lose his serve, was very disappointed in the end, obviously (!!)

Two points literally decided the match and in the 2nd set, Ivo's return of service, that was more luck than intentional :rolleyes: was the end, he easily finished it off.

But like Mario said afterwards, when Ivo serves like that, there's no play, and that's true. So, there goes another one :sad:
