Thanks to croat123 for finding this gem. They need to stay away from the raki this shit is dangerous in large quantities, especially if he ended up in hospital, the stomach pumping isn't a good look.

Still funny though. :lol:

Zovko has one of the uggliest serves, no bh at all, but nice fellow, knows how to conduct himself arround the ladies....

His biggest win must be against Gicquel at home indoors, i have never seen a player ''try'' so much like Gicquel that day, i got a free entrance but some spectators wanted to rip Gicquels head off for that performance....

He is probably not used to the quality stuff like homemade rakija, though nightlife in Belgrade is amazing....

High temperature due to the high levels of alcohol in the rakija.
