I'm really looking forward this huge encounter between Croatia and Argentina now!!


Here are the team nominations:

CROATIA
Ivan Ljubicic (playing captain)
Mario Ancic
Sasa Tuksar
Marin Cilic

ARGENTINA
David Nalbandian
Juan Ignacio Chela
Jose Acasuso
Agustin Calleri
Captain: Alberto Mancini


:bounce: AJMO HRVATSKA!! :bounce:


PS: This will be the last tie with Ivan as a captain... too hard to cope with both things... and that's understandable.

Actually, in somehow, it's unfair to IVAN. He must take too much pressure. BUT fortunately, they did really great! esp IVAN! :yeah:

of course, our Mario always can play a key role in Croatian team! :inlove:

This encounter is really hot! Looking forward to it! :aparty:

04-03-2006, 12:51 PM
And I don't really know whether he was serious, but still this part of Ivan's post match interview looks interesting to me:

Q. Is it good to have a Davis Cup so quickly to take your mind off this loss?

IVAN LJUBICIC: Of course not. I'm not going to say, I can't say now that I'm gonna play 100% on Friday because we have this opportunity maybe to put Mario against No. 2 first day. We gonna work it out. It's hard to say now.

Unfortunately, Ivo, it's not something, I don't think, he can help out a little bit. Of course it would be better if the Davis Cup wasn't there.

Could he really envisage he might not play Friday? :eek:

fanancic
04-03-2006, 01:34 PM

Yeah, I've just read it too, but can't believe it, I mean that point is crucial cause no one expects that Mario must win ag. Nalby and everyone hopes Ivan will bring the 1st point.

On the other hand, he would set Mario as #1 player, so that means Mario would play ag. Calleri or whoever it will be and that would be easier, but still, too much pressure on Mario cause I don't think neither Marin nor Saša could defeat Nalby :scared:

Ljubo must change his mind :angel:

Well analysed :yeah: But I cannot figure out the reason of putting Mario as No.1 Player. as well as I don't think IVAN is not under his good condition although he lost the match against Roger. He did so well in this match except the crucial points. :o

Let's see what gonna happen on Friday. Then we can do some analysis at that time. :devil:

Mario abt him as #1 player:

>>> Unless it's an injury, I don't think it's realistic to expect me a #1 player . The stake is high, top names, this is probably the strongest match that we've played in Croatia. That's why I think we should confront them with our best forces.

Abt Ljubo not playing:

>>>I don't think it will bother Ivan that he'll come on Tuesday night. Agaist USA he came from Dubai to Zagreb, with equally big time difference and it didn't have an affect on his game.

Abt the surface:
>>>The surface is very well known to us, we've won a lot of matches on this kind of surface. Tired? We're professionals, we change cities, time, climate from week to week, we're used to it. And the fact that we are tired only shows that we're in a good form and that we've stayed long in a tournament. Still, no matter what, we have a very difficult match ahead of us in which first day will be extremely important.

Ljubicic uncertain for Croatia's Davis Cup matches


ZAGREB, Croatia -- Croatia's leading player and captain Ivan Ljubicic may miss the first day of the Davis Cup quarterfinal against Argentina due to fatigue and abdominal pain.

"At the moment I cannot say with 100 percent certainty that I will play on Friday," Ljubicic, who lost to top-ranked Roger Federer in the Nasdaq-100 Open final on Sunday, told Vecernji List daily on Tuesday.

"What is certain is that I shall not be at my best and there is a chance that Mario [Ancic] gets to be our number one. But I will make a final decision on Thursday," the fifth-ranked player in the world said.

Croatia plays Argentina in Zagreb on April 7-9.

Argentina's coach Alberto Mancini told reporters on arriving in Zagreb that only David Nalbandian was a sure starter on the first day. "The other three stand equal chances of playing on Friday," he said.

Nalbandian added: "I played both Ancic and Ljubicic in Miami last week. I easily beat Ancic, while Ljubicic defeated me convincingly. :( :rolleyes: But that match will have no effect on this weekend."

The Croats won their first Davis Cup title in December and started the defense of the title in February with a 3-2 victory over Austria in Graz

This is Mario's interview for Jutarnji list, I really don't have time to trnslate it right now, maybe some girl that uderstands Croatian can do it, at least what Mario said, if not, I'll translate it later.

ZAGREB - Mario Ančić je u ponedjeljak izjednačio najbolji renking u karijeri (17. na ‘ulaznoj’ listi), deseti je na ljestvici po bodovima osvojenim samo 2006. U predvorju zagrebačkog hotela Westin dočekao nas je nasmijan, naspavan, odmoran i spreman za veliku bitku s Argentinom.

- Čeka nas najveći, najteži meč na domaćem terenu. Po čemu? Po svemu. Po trenutačnoj formi, po naboju, atmosferi, suparničkim igračima. Veliki je ulog u igri, ako u glavi imate i mogućeg polufinalnog suparnika. No, nećemo sad o polufinalu.

Kod Marija nikad dosta opreza, ali samo izvan terena. Na terenu je, kaže, napravio pomak prema naprijed, maksimalno podignuo agresivnost, što će pokazati i rezultati.

- U super sam formi, a putanja je uzlazna. Način na koji igram u posljednjih nekoliko mjeseci je pravi i na visokoj razini. U mjesec i pol dana sam pobijedio dvojicu Top 10 igrača, a uglavnom pobjeđivao i sve slabije rangirane. Izgradio sam svoj stil, prepoznatljiv. Mogu reći da se zna kako igra Mario Ančić.

Takvu smo izjavu čuli i prije devet mjeseci kad je igra ipak bila drugačija?

- Tada sam isto radio na treninzima, ali nisam uspijevao to prenijeti i u mečeve. Sad je to počelo sjedati na svoje mjesto. Prije bih se više prilagođavao suparniku. Sad se više koncentriram na ono što ja moram raditi. Davidenko je najbolji primjer. S njim sam prije imao problema, u Splitu mu ništa nisam mogao. U Miamiju sam u oba seta hvatao “break”, ali sam osjećao da sam ravnopravan u svakom segmentu.

Mario će istaknuti ulogu svog trenera Fredrika Rosengrena.

- Maksimalno je pozitivan. Puno razgovaramo o načinu na koji bih trebao igrati.

Branitelji naslova su favoriti, ali Argentinci su vrlo opasni. Što će biti vaša glavna prednost?

- Odlučivat će sitnice, a od tih sitnica je naša najveća prednost domaći teren. Nadam se da će dvorana biti puna, navijanje žestoko i da će se Argentinci naći u drugačijoj sredini od one na koju su navikli. Njihova je prednost što nemaju teret favorita.

O izborniku nakon meča s Argentinom

Marija Ančića nije iznenadila odluka Ivana Ljubičića da nakon meča s Argentinom odstupi s izborničke dužnosti.

- Ne čudi me što više ne želi biti izbornik. Kad smo se našli u situaciji bez izbornika, Ivan je predložio da on preuzme tu dužnost, a ja sam mu tada rekao da će to biti teško činit’.

Jedan od razloga koji je Ljubičić naveo za silazak s izborničke dužnosti bili su odnosi sa suigračima. U tom je smislu spomenuo Marija i njegovu ljutnju kad mu je zaboravio reći nešto vezano uz reprezentaciju.

O nasljedniku je, kaže Mario, još prerano govoriti.

- Moramo se skoncentrirati na meč s Argentinom i probati pobijediti, a onda sjesti hladne glave i pronaći najbolje rješenje.

Croatia's top pair face fitness battle for Davis Cup
Thu Apr 6, 2006 11:41 AM BST170

ZAGREB, April 6 (Reuters) - Davis Cup holders Croatia are holding their breath over the fitness of Ivan Ljubicic and Mario Ancis ahead of Friday's opening singles rubbers in the World Group quarter-final against Argentina.

World number five and team captain Ljubicic is suffering from fatigue and abdominal problems while Mario Ancic, ranked 17th on the ATP tour, is struggling to recover from a back injury.

"I still haven't made a decision. I want to play but my stomach hurts, I haven't slept much and I am still jet-lagged," Ljubicic was quoted as saying by the Sportske Novosti daily newspaper on Thursday.

Ljubicic brushed aside Argentina's top-ranked player and world number three David Nalbandian 6-2 6-1 in the Nasdaq-100 Open semi-finals in Miami last week before going down in three tight sets to world number one Roger Federer.

However, he complained of severe abdominal pains and fatigue when he returned to Croatia on Tuesday evening.

Ancic, beaten by Nalbandian in the quarter-finals of the Miami tournament, said he was unlikely to play on the opening day, meaning that Croatia's hopes of progressing to the last four may rest on unheralded reserves Sasa Tuksar and Marin Cilic.

"I have to take it one day at a time. I will play if at all possible, but at this point I can't say whether I will be fit on Friday, Saturday or Sunday," he said.

The absence of either Ljubicic or Ancic in Saturday's doubles would also be a massive setback for Croatia as the pair have a perfect 6-0 Davis Cup record.

The draw for the order of play will be held later on Thursday.

mario:
˝when i was stretching after the training, this pain cut trough my back, for 10 minutes i couldn´t stand on my feet
magnetic resonance showed what we have feared
it´s discus hernia and chance of me playing are very small˝

altough mario is nominated to play on friday, ivan can change him untill 15 minutes before the match
and that is what is probably going to happen

ivan said that now he has no choice:
˝i will be ready 100%˝

mario continued:
˝situation is not good, today i am feeling a little bit better, but that is not even close to where it should be
i don´t know why is this had to happen to me, i have great desire to play
discus hernia requires strict resting, at least one week
discus is pressuring the nerve, but we are trying to find some solution, i am drinking pills, i am hoping that there is still time left to recover
but unfortunatly chances are slim˝

mario added that he is still not sure is he going to listen to the doctors or himself
˝the risk is big, and i know it
beside me there are two guys who can jump in, but we will have to decide together as a team˝

i want to add that nalbandian was heard today saying that they will crush croatia

Oh Mario, it must be so hard to decide between playing or taking care of his body :hug: Though, to me, there's basically no chance to win against Nalby if he's not 100% fit, so I don't see the interest of playing :shrug: as the only thing that can happen is to make the injury worse. But I know it's not as easy for him, considering the big desire he has to play...

There's basically no chance they win now, but I know they'll give everything they can to make the better result possible :hug:

Oh, I thought it's smth new... No-no-- It was yesterday, when Mario was in a draw for today... So we still don't know... :confused:
But I'm sure, he MUST listen to doctors! It's seriuose! :(

"It's difficult, almost impossible to talk numbers. Really it's up to Ancic, he must decide and say how he feels. We will wait as late as we can on Saturday, and that means one hour before the match, but at this moment Mario's chances are slim."

Ljubicic confirmed that Cilic will again take Ancic’s place in the doubles match if the Croatian No. 2 is unable to take the court. If that happens it will be only the second time that Ljubicic and Cilic have teamed up together, and the first time in Davis Cup action.

1:1 after the first day. I guess. it couldn't been better anywhere... :(
Ivan :worship: :worship: :worship:
he did everything, he was great! Thank you, Ivan! :hug:
Completely agree with you Maria, I think we couldn't expect more than 1-all after Friday's matches.
Well done Ivan :worship: :worship:



And now the biggest question is in doubles... We need Mario, but he needs doctors and rest... :sad:
Again, agree with you dear :hug: And now Mario is the one who can decide whether he takes the risk to play and when...
Should he play the doubles, hoping to win it and then rely on Ivan to win against Nalby? Or should he let Marin play the doubles, and in case they lose it, hope Ivan will win against Nalby and try to play the fifth rubber?
Omg, it must be so tough for them to decide what is the best, cause I think Ivan can win his second singles, but where will they earn the third point??


Anyway, best of luck guys - for today's doubles first :hug:

without any doubt Mario is the best partner to Ljubo :hug: while at this hard situation, Marin has done what he should do, so has Ljubo :)

while Ljubo vs David is too too cruel to me esp when Ljubo has experienced two really touch match with so much pressure :o

linus
04-09-2006, 10:10 AM
in the past two days, i heard many parlances that Mario is so important, suddenly he got maybe the highest credit since he was born in tennis world. I should have become happy while i was not :o

my dear Mario, after this hard tie of the year, no matter whats the result, i knew at least to me the most important thing is that you are well always. You can do everything for your country when you fit enough. "there will be ample time" .

vero
04-09-2006, 10:31 AM
Completely agree with you dear!
And that's a bit odd, cause last year almost all credits came to Ivan (and it was probably deserved)... but here, everyone seems to discover Mario is also quite important in this team...

linus
04-09-2006, 10:36 AM
right, Ljubo 101% deserves to be super man for Croa :yeah: while you are right, last year, no matter what Mario did, he was so low so weak to the ppl :o but suddenly he seemed to carry most of the hope, so fun, so frustrating :rolleyes:

vero
04-09-2006, 12:27 PM
Exactly!

But anyway, no matter what ppl say or even think, and whatever happens this afternoon, we all know they both always give everything so that Croatia goes as far as possible :angel: So we just will have to wish them better luck next year!

Sasa just lost 7/6 in the fourth :sad:

Hello guys!

Well, this weekend officially sucked :awww: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :sobbing: :speakles:

I had so many expectations and was really looking forward to it and, of course, to see Mario adn the worst possible thing happened :speakles:

I just can’t believe how all of this has happened ! And I can’t believe that no more Cro DC till next year :sobbing:

I found out some things: I knew there was a reason that I don’t like Nalby as a person and once again, he showed it, how awful he can be. His behaviour and everything…:rolleyes: better not go there, not even his great tennis will be able to make up for it any more.

I can officially say that from now on I REALLY don’t like Ivo Karlovic, who conveniently turned down the offer to play for the country, but accidentally accepted to play in the Cup of nations or whatever it is called, where prize money is huge :ras:
I think that mostly we can thank him that we won’t see Croatia in the semifinal :fiery:
Asshole!!!

Marin was great this weekend, well, was too impressed with David, but in the doubles he played ok, especially last two sets, but he has a long way to go still :)

And Saša Tuksar..:worship: I mean, a guy who never played at this level was playing amazing, in my opinion, better than Chela, but showed too much nervousness in crucial moments and wasn’t lucky at all. But he played very bravely and :yeah: for him. Was very close…He got himself a new fan :D

And last, and most important – Mario, who was giving interviews both before Saturday’s and Sunday’s match and looked really devastated. For those who watched the Ivan’s match, could see that he couldn’t even sit normal and couldn’t get up in the breaks, in the end he left before the match was even over :awww:

Congrads to those who read all this :lol: but I am so mad and I have to spell it all out :angel:

:bigcry: :bigcry:

linus
04-10-2006, 03:12 PM
OMG :eek:

what David has done to you :eek:

there is so much against to Karlovic now :p i cant say i like him when i knew him for the first time some years ago :lol: but frankly speaking, Ljubo is a good captain, at least Ivo needs to be there to be with other guys even he still wouldnt win :(

my cute Marin :couple: these two matches would help him a lot i know, God has told me that :)

Sasa :lol: really fun that match was, i can understand you ppl enjoyed him coz he was really brave while Chela should have been a big gift to him, to Croa, the result messed :devil:

then our Mario, i cant think of him too much. So much pain pressured me last weekends, i would like to hide Mario in my mind which is a huge disaster from God :sad:

I don't know, David simply disappointed me as a person, and didn't show all that much as a t. player either this weekend, I guess I'll let some time pass, maybe I'll forgive him, but he'll always stay the guy who kicked my Mario out of DC (I know it has nothing to do with anything, but I'll know :cuckoo: )

I can almost say that I hate Karlovic, even though that's a big word and I don't hate anyone, but he is the closest it could get right now :lol:

So did you watch the matches?

lovemario
04-10-2006, 03:29 PM
According to all of you guys,they fought really well...:yeah:

It's ok,sweety,just let it out...Don't hold it in you...
J hope you feel a lot of better now...;)
Thanks a lot :hug:

You guys are the first ones I talk this to, cause none of my friends are really tennis fans and my sister, who's likes Mario too is not with me, or should I say, I'm not with her, so we didn't get a chance to discuss it :angel:
