Since we're talking about the team, maybe some know, guys are nominated for prestigious Laureus Sport Awards that will take place sometimes in May :) :

Nominated for the team of the year:

Barcelona
Croatian Davis Cup Team
Liverpool
New Zealand Rugby Team
Renault
San Antonio Spurs

I don't know about their chances of winning, but they have showed that (a two-man) team can become world champion :D

Hey, why not? They usually give most of them to French players and I know they always give one to an Australian player, but as he won the junior event last year, they may think he deserves one :angel:

I was kidding a bit, but as I already told Tosee, I think there are chances for him cause he did won Juniors and lot of ppl have heard of him this year with Zagreb ATP and DC, so it's not just my *dream on* but some hope too :angel:

Mario is not playing singles, so he should play doubles (if it comes to that) and since it's ag. Bryan brothers, we should be able to watch it :)

I'm not sure about the concept of this competition. Is everyone playing everyone in a group and then two best teams go to semis, or?

vero
05-22-2006, 12:37 PM
Yes, I've just seen he's scheduled to play with Ivan against the Bryan's... hope to see that! :p

As for the competition, not sure too, but I think the best team of each group meet in the final - directly :unsure:

linus
05-22-2006, 01:05 PM
Ljubo is tiebreak with Blake in the decisive set, God saying luck soon,wish he wins :devil:

then just just wish silly Ivo to win over Ginepri, while not sure of it !!

anyway, doubles is really full of passions, i prefer Mario to doubles than singles :cool: to be serious, RG is coming, i can just look this team cup as warm-up to Mario, sorry :angel:

Gordana, you are right, every team must against the other three in its group first, it would maybe take 5 days to get the groups results, to pick the higher points, if same, to pick matches then sets, as vero said, the two best teams play in final on Saturday then champion born :lol:

linus
05-22-2006, 01:08 PM
oh, Ljubo won the tiebreak with 7-5, good start :yeah:

poor Blake, lost to two Croa guys in 3 sets with a tiebreak both on clay recently already :lol:

Hey lovely Mario fans! :wavey: Here the Reuters article with a quote from Mario. :D

Ljubicic struggles at World Team Cup
Wed May 24, 2006 7:17 PM BST

DUESSELDORF, May 24 (Reuters) - Croatia stayed on course to reach the World Team Cup final despite Ivan Ljubicic slumping to a 6-2 6-2 defeat by Spain's David Ferrer on Wednesday.

After struggling to beat American James Blake in his opening match of the round-robin competition, the world number four's fortunes did not improve against Ferrer.

He never felt comfortable in the windy conditions but played down any concerns ahead of the French Open, which begins in Paris on Sunday.

"It was definitely a disappointing match," Ljubicic told reporters. "I made a lot of unforced errors. A lot of the points I was just a shot away from winning and I missed a few easy volleys, a few easy shots.

"Of course the wind didn't help at all because I have the game where I have to hit winners and if the conditions are not perfect it's extremely hard."

Croatia levelled the tie at 1-1 when Mario Ancic edged past Feliciano Lopez, breaking in the final game to win 7-5 4-6 6-4.

"It's always tough to come from a tournament where you played good," said Ancic, who reached the Hamburg Masters semi-finals last week.

"But I fought well and won and that's the most important thing." :D :D Of course :D :D

Ljubicic made amends in the doubles when he and Ivo Karlovic Croatia defeated Lopez and Fernando Verdasco 6-3 7-6 to win the tie 2-1.

Croatia will next face Chile, 2-1 winners over the United States, to determine which team will qualify for Saturday's final.

Andy Roddick suffered an ankle injury and was forced to retire against Nicolas Massu while trailing 4-2 in the opening set. Paul Capdeville sealed the tie for Chile by defeating Robby Ginepri 6-4 6-4.

The Americans claimed the doubles when Bob and Mike Bryan beat Fernando Gonzalez and Massu 6-4 7-5.

Holders Germany play the Czech Republic on Thursday to establish who will reach the final from their group.

What a great opportunity for the final! It would be awesome if Ivan could beat Gonzales, but :scratch: and then I think Mario should win over Massu :p

PS: vero, was Mario on TV on Wednesday, I couldn't watch, I had classes :rolleyes:

05-26-2006, 12:48 PM
Yes, but only the second part of the match (abt one hour) on DSF :) As I didn't know that the German channel WDR also show the WTC :banghead: (I've just discovered it!!) , maybe I could have watched the whole match on this channel :shrug:
So for those who can watch WDR, Croatia vs Chile is live now untill 4:00pm, and from then DSF will have live coverage.
As for tomorrow's final, WDR will show it live from noon, while DSF will show the final (a summary??) from 6:00pm (not live unless the final isn't finished by this time I guess).

Mario, just see you RG but .... maybe he would play doubles who knows :o

I don't think it's something serious with his back, just better for Mario to rest today as there was no need to play. Mario played enough this week and did really well. :yeah: Now some good rest and help for the back to be ready for Roland Garros. :hug: :hug:
I'll go watch the doubles Ivan & Ivo and hopefully see some of the ceremony too. :D

所以Ivo也需要我们理解 :aplot:

Gonzo在我眼里有时候就是粗人一个,怎么办?他的动作举止真的很粗鲁的 :rolleyes: 同样大力发球,Ljubo看上去明显上档次,我去年TMC 看球,真的,连PUERTA都没GONZO粗,作为东方女孩,我真没办法欣赏他 :lol: 呵呵,说过算数,不用放你心上 :p

他的確是太狂野! :aplot: 當初看上去就是在奧運中表現的激情! :eek:
Mashik,we just talked in Chinese,so...

This team is successful and deserves to win :worship: because they all have team spirit, :bigclap: (Even Ivo has too this time!) When Ivan lost to Ferrer,Mario did a great job and then Ivan and Ivo played well to save the team! :worship: In the final Mario was injured so others were still fighting really well! :hearts: I don't think it's easy to do that because Ivo left during DC,I don't think their relationship were too good at that moment,but I think Ivan and Mario do a good job to talk with him and solve the problem. :yeah:

No, actually I think that they are fine abt Ivo, cause even in Zagreb during DC, Ivan had never blaimed Ivo for not coming, he had a lot of understanding for him (which I found odd considering the situation) so they weren't mad at him at all, it was more the public, TV and all that was mad (I was too, still am :lol: ) but good effort from Ivo at WTC, hope that this will make him to stay in the team whether he plays or not.

:eek: They guys are broad-minded!Obviously I can't do that if I were one of them! :nerner:
He is a good captain! :yeah: This team is great,but one main problem is too less people can play live rubber,also lack of some clay specialist.I hope Marin and Sasa will win DC matches soon,I don't like one/two men take all pressures. :eek:
