He fakes his injury again and probably will not be in Krefeld! What a shit!

He only had 6 months off with a knee problem before playing in Chennai, it's not like Ljubo and Mario aren't fit enough either.

Bigger actor than Coria or Djokovic, that's a good one.

I love how people on here can say if a player's injury is fake or not

80% of MTF members are doctors. At least that's how it looks like...:rolleyes:

Didn't you know in the MTF doctor clinic against all medical evidence. Cramping has been defined as an injury.

The captain said that just a few minutes before. Zovko will play instead him!

Ancic and Ljubicic will cover well no problem. Haas is a threat but there isn't much reliable back up, no Kiefer means the Croats will have little trouble.

No, he's injured. And no when he's ok, 'cause we love to have him when the Wimbledon begins. But last two years (Bracciali and Wawrinka :banghead:)
You have Murray, Henman (:haha:), Rusedski (:haha: :haha:), so what's wrong?

He just doesn't want to play the dead rubber. :(

I guess Germany will win 4-1 now that Croatia has no decent dead rubber players. ;)

He is very tall and weighs 100 kgs thanks to his height. So this puts pressure on his knees and he is more prone to injury then smaller people.

Oh I was looking ahead to September :o :p

But we don't have a good team as of the moment though...Henman is still a major doubt and Rusedski ( :tape: )...Boggo is BAD and...Bloomers is inexperienced to say the least :o

He is complaining that Ljubicic and Ancic get 73% of the money paid out by the Croatian Tennis Federation - Ivo gets 9% (as do the coach and the fourth player)

interesting.. i think that he doesnt deserve much more. compared to what he can give to the team and what ancic/ljubicic can give.result wise that is

Jim Jones
02-05-2007, 03:06 PM
He gets paid as much as the 4rth player. He should be paid more than him but less then ancic & Lubo.

Mane
02-05-2007, 03:08 PM
Karlovic never won alive rubber against in Davis Cup and I think He never won a dead rubber too so He can't request any money!

He is an ass, many people in Croatia dont like him:cool:
He should have played against Argentina last year and we would have won.
He wanted some 50-60 K $ to come to Zagreb + plane tickets for him and his wife.
He didnt get it, Mario got injured and Croatia lost.
He won the DC in 2005, it will allow him to play in Seniours Tour if i am right.

He could do more for his country, but he obviously cares only about himself.
I dont think he will play more then 20-25 atp matches so he could have joined the team.
Ljubo and Mario play more then 60 matches a year and still love to play for their country.
It is not all about the $$$.

02-05-2007, 04:58 PM
so what. The national tennis team of Croatia isn't the same as the national football team where they play for their pride! If Karlovic was a millionair he probably would play for Croatia DC team because then he doesn't need the money but fact is he needs the money very hard so why should he play and maybe get a injury and can't play for a while to earn money?

I don't think it's about money, really. Guess it's a matter of pride. Less money doesn't only mean less money, it also means less respect. For those who ask why he makes a big deal out of money, you can easily reverse the argument: if money isn't the issue, if you play for honor, then why don't they divide money equally between all the players? Like musketeers, all for one, one for all? Obviously, what you get paid means how much you are worth to the team, and Karlovic maybe feels, if he isn't 'worth' more than the 4th player, then the team obviously doesn't think they actually need him. And if they don't need him, then why join them in the first place.

In other words, I can perfectly understand his position. :angel:

I thought players didn't get paid for DC...I don't see why they should.

Anyway, I don't think what Karlovic has been doing is that morally reprehensible...I heard a story about Volandri refusing to play DC because he wasn't paid X amount of money...considering he was, and still is, the leading Italian, that is pretty disgusting.

Action Jackson
02-06-2007, 12:29 PM
The whole DC money issue has been going for a while. I mean Becker and Stich had arguments about it.

Then there was an issue with the Austrian team over money as well. As for Karlovic, well if money is the problem, just come out and say it, but if they are going to pay the players, then if Ivo is getting that percentage, then it's disgusting.

Well I understand to an extent him getting less than Ljubo and Ancic, but not that much less.

BORO77
02-06-2007, 02:23 PM
This team, specially Ljubo and Mario have made him DC Champion.
Many players that could beat Karlovic with their eyes closed will never win the DC.
He should appreciate that and show up every time Croatia plays even if he wont play.
It is always better to have more options.
If one of our top players is injured and Karlovic doesnt show up we cant beat any team in the top 50:)

I agree with you.:yeah: . It's not about money, it's about respect. Croatia need Karlovic, if Mario or Ivan couldn't play, they need him. Cilic is very green

karlovic :sad: :mad: I dont understand this guy... he should be 3th player,a substitude or play in doubles. I know that he needs money for living, but he cant expect more money because mario and ljubo do most of work wich is logical because they are in top 10 and karlovic is now out of top 100. karlovic had no credits in davis cup for us so he has no right to demand more money. Im sure that the money he gets in davis cup is enough for plane ticket and for other expenses.because of karlovics stupid demands, we lost in dc last year and a lot of croats will never forgive him that!

Karlovic should be thankful for the 9% of the money he gets. thank god he is gone because he was robbing the croatian federation at that %
