What a draw :eek: :banghead: :sobbing: but I guess if you could choose someone to play indoors, it'd be Robredo :p but then... :scared:

plus, Mario himself had said that he hasn't played a good match so far in practise :( I hope that won't affect his matches. Shanghai looks further and further...

Alicia Molik and Mark Philippoussis will be Australia's representatives at the Hopman Cup tennis tournament in Perth.

The pairing of the sixth seeded team was announced by tournament director Paul McNamee as he unveiled most of the field for the 19th year of the tournament that will run from December 30 to January 5.

Russians Nadia Petrova and Dmitry Tursunov are the top seeded team, with singles rankings of world No.5 and No.21 respectively.

Spain's Tommy Robredo will partner Anabel Medina Garrigues and are the second seeded team ahead of the Czech Republic's Lucie Safarova and her boyfriend Tomas Berdych.

Fourth seeds are Venus Williams and defending champion Taylor Dent from the US, ahead of Croatia's brother and sister team of Sanja and Mario Ancic.

Seventh seeds are Korean's Toon Jeong Cho and Hyung Taik Lee.

The eighth and final team will be the winners of the inaugural Asian Hopman Cup which will be held in Hyderabad, India, from November 20 to November 26.

You couldn't say that this is a abd draw, but considering Mario's (lack of) form recently, now I don't know what to think anymore :tape:

I see the power duo is back :cool: looking for more titles :aplot: Poor Bhupathi, things weren't going well with James :o so he goes back with mario :p

I think Mario decided to play doubles cause he's nth more to lose...and probably wants more matches.

Oh the ceremony was lovely too.

Besides the trophys they got porcelain vases and big crystal beer jugs with kind golden lids from the sponsors.

OOOOOK, after today's horror in Shanghai I have to relax and to remember the wonderful week in St. Petersburg would be great. Plus I've got some new pics from the tournament (not Mario's, but Frederik for example), so the memories are very fresh now ;)

First of all - yes, Gordana, it was me with my friends with the posters. Me and Zhenya were with letters and Lena and Nata were with the big poster. BTW Mario and Frederik wrote some words on it on Sunday, but I'll tell you later about it

First time I've seen him was on Tuesday, before his first singles match. I came to my place 20 minutes before the match, look down (I was at the 2d raw) and seen Mario 2 meters behind me! He was warming up with Frederik near the court just in front of me. I was in such shock so seat almost beside my chair! :lol: And I was almost dead when he looked straight in my eyes. He was so close and his huge black eyes... :hearts:
Then during the match I was trying to make some pics, but it was impossible, 'cos I forget where is the anti-shock at my camera ('cos it's actually not mine ) and my hands was shaking. So as a result I've got hundreds awful pics that I can't delete because it's Mario! So I was cheering for him, but first 3 days I was along, so it wasn't very interesting. And he needn't a really hard support, 'cos he won his first matches pretty easy.
The fun began on Thursday! Zhenya came from Moscow and Lena and Nata decided to support Mario really good! They draw that big poster (they did it at 3 a.m. and it was a little bit... hm, they can do much better), we got our letters and begin the real support during the quarter against Max. Mario seemed a little surprised with all this support, but he liked it and after every match he threw the signed balls to us (so we all have one) and thanked us.
There was a funny moment during this match, some men (Max's fans) were sitting near us and shouting: "Mirny, Mirny". We couldn't keep silence of course and were screaming: "Mario, Mario!" In the end there was: "Mirny Mario". And everybody were laughing, 'cos Mirny on Russian means "peaceful', so we'd got "peaceful Mario" :lol:
But the most funny and sweet moments were off-court of course! First of all I must say, that I couldn't say a word to him till Sunday :o I don't know why, but when he was near I just couldn't open my mouth! I don't know how have I asked him to take a picture on Thursday, but I did it. Though I've got really strange almost white face on that picture! And I had to hold him on really good or I would fall to his feet! Not the best way to take a picture I guess :rolleyes: But our second picture on Sunday is much better.
The best day was Sunday of course! In the morning, before Mario's match we took a picture with Frederik. He was drinking coffee, but it didn't stop us! Poor, he hides his cup beside our poster on the first pic, but leaves it on the second. Girls tried to explain him how they were drawning this poster at 3 a.m., but he understood only "3 a.m." and "let's go Mario" and was laughing. And in the end he said: "I like you". That was great :D
And then there was a final... We were screaming and jumping like crazy! And in his final speech Mario thanked all the crowd and "especially the group of my fans" and shown at us, that was really nice from him :)
There were a lot of funny moments. Like during the autograph-session, when he came he was a little bit scared because there was a huge crowd (mainly girls of course) and after 5 minutes Mario said to his manager: "Don't forget about me!", as anybody can forget about him :p Or when he came to the RADO style awards, there was nobody from the organization. That's why he was so boring at some pictures (and that one, where he's sitting like in the corner too). And then some one congratulated him with the award, but on Russian and there was no translator, so Mario didn't understand anything and all he could do is just smile :) When he was going to leave we screamed: "Let him to say something", the man asked him:"Mario, do you want to say something?" and he stayed to say the speech (I've uploaded it and post it when finish this one)
Hm... I wrote so much, but nothing about his game,'cos... I haven't watch the game too much :o But the best match was the semis against Gulbis. They both played really great, high-quality and interesting tennis, But Mario has more experience and confidence, so Gulbis really hasn't chances. I mean, there were bps at Mario's serve, but he wasn't broken. And he didn't lose a set during the tournament :D

I think that's enough for the first time. If I remember something interesting, I'll post it ;)

And some pics of us if you're interesting

Thanks Maria for writing your experience with Mario, I enjoyed reading it :D :hug: The best things usually happen off court :aplot:

You girls are famous now, you were on pics and in highlights and all ;) you looked like you had a lot fun :D

I thought it was so cute that you've been so nervous in Mario's presence :D though I guess we would have gotten better pics if you had been still :lol: I'm just kidding, of course, I'd probably be nervous myself :angel:

It's not a problem that you didn't write much abt the game cause it must have been good enough if it got him a tournament win :cool: and I saw some of it myself in the final :cool:

It's really great that you were there when he won the tournament! I have a lot of doubts concerning that; I'd really like to go to one of Cro tournaments next year, but what if he loses early...and I'm there like an idiot coming cause of him :eek: and later cheering for ???? If I had a way of knowing how he would do... *thinking aloud* :p

And, don't hesitate to write some more if you remember sth, doesn't matter if it was long ago :wavey:

May be it was... For him... But I was in shock and almost into a swoon :o
Though on Sunday i was much better and even could talk to him :p

Mario was very sweet all week long. When we asked him during the autograph-session: "Mario, did you like our support?", he smiled and said: "Yessssss" :D
And on Saturday, when we were taking a picture with him and our poster, he denoted to our poster and said on Russian: "Davai - davai, zavtra" :lol: We were very surprised that he hasn't any accent at all :eek: :lol:

11-18-2006, 09:47 PM
Don't worry, I'm sure he's getting used to (girl)fans being nervous around him :p

He mentioned the other day that he loves when there are fans cheering (they were talking abt Cro fans, how there are many of us, at almost all tournaments), and that he was surprised how many ppl cheered for him, he mentioned Mumbai there, cause it was his 1st time in India and all. I think he still hasn't gotten used to the whole popularity thing..it's kinda cute..and means he appreciates fans more :)

what does zavtra mean?

PS: that Mirnyi Mario thing souns really funny cause in Cro mirni also means still, calm

Yeah, we were really glad, surprised and proud when he thanked us in his speech and then said at the press-conference: "For real, I'm pretty surprised, that there always was "Mario, let's go!" from the stands and cute girls was with the posters. And it was a big pleasure to win the tournament in St. Petersburg, the public here is always understanding and friendly" :)

we say sutra for tomorrow, everything very similar :p

So were you able to say anything in Cro to him, after your recent Cro lang. studying? :p

it was probably misunderstanding :)
come on literally would be "hajde" (or "ajde", in "cheer language" also "ajmo") but it can also have that meaning.... not exactly like that, but roughly :)

you know that's correct :p

Awww, but if you had said sth in Cro and then he would have asked you where you had learned it and then you'd tell him from this lovely girl and then he'd say ohhh really maybe I should meet this lovely girl could you like give me her number or email address and that'd be perfect for me and Mario (no commas or anything cause I didn't wan't to interrupt the continuity of my silly ideas :o ) :lol:

BTW, we asked him how to say "come on" on Croatian and he said "Idem". :scratch:

Both is correct :p he probably said idemo, and it's pretty similar, I think I explained it to the girls before, it's sth like the difference between c'mon and let's go! So either is fine

It's the last one, really :o
It was after he with Mahesh lost their doubles match. He was very tired and sad and I thought he wasn't smiling at the picture, but.. He is :D

And here is another Mario's story. It's about his first training that I've attended.

He was training with Janko, Schutler and Mahesh... And Johansson and Bjorkman were training there before them.
At the beginning Mario and Jonas decided to play football! But with the tennis ball and on the court! It was really funny :lol: I have a small video (in normal direction :p ) ;)
Then he was hitting a little bit and in the end he sat on the bench and decided to talk to Mahesh. After 5 minutes talking he take his shirt off. We were :eek: adn then :hearts: And he didn't wear the new one immediately! He was sitting without the shirt while we were going crazy with our cameras and then he take the towel and covered his shoulders with it! Some more pics, then he wears the shirt and goes away.
The best training in my life! :p :angel:

Yeah, i was lucky, I was soooooo lucky! St. Petersburg open is so small tournament, there's not many security, not many people around. Believe it or not, but during the doubles match Mario went from court, but without the security! He came through the crowd, that was going to the stands, and went somewhere :lol: THat was so strange, but very nice :p They trust our Mario ;)
