He told the press that he felt like crap on court today because of his illness. He says that he has spent most of the last few days in bed, but that he tried his hardest to fight. The Croatian team's doctor is worried about how this match will affect Ancic and whether Mario will be able to play doubles tomorrow.

Mario :sad:

FUCK YOU KARLOVIC :fiery:

Thank God we have Zovko, who is a solid doubles player.

That's bether. Karlo doesn't give a shit to this team and you can't blame him. Ancic isn't sick he is only trying to find a excuse to the loss against Haas

You sometimes seem fine, but sometimes you're weird... He lost to a top10 player, why would he trying to find an excuse for that?

Come on if he said three days before that he was very ill wy did he play than? if he'd won than he wouldn't even mention that he was sick but now he lost he is saying i was very il, i didn't sleep good bla bla bla. Look what Ljubo has gone trough last year a lot worser but still he did play tennis and beat Nalbandian

People knew before that he was ill :rolleyes:
And Ancic isn't a player who would lie to excuse his loss.

The difference between Zovko and Ancic is huge. I'm sure Ancic will play. :)

Hasn't this happened before? Ancic got ill and Karlovic had pulled out and screwed the team over as a result?

yeah,last year against argentina.karlovic only needed to win one singles or doubles match and we would have 3 wins :sad: if that repeats this year, karlovic should change his nationality!!:(

I understnad why Karlovic doesnt play. I dont agree with it but it makes sense I guess from his point of view. That said, Ancic should not be to blame for getting sick. People get sick and it is tough to play sick.

I find the issue of money (as concerns Davis Cup participation) a little morally repugnant but if Ivo was indeed getting only 9% whilst Ljubo and Ancic got pretty much all the rest, then I think that that figure sums up how much they consider him to be worth in terms of team effort and talent as well. I'd be pretty insulted myself. :shrug:

i doubt Ljubo cares about the money for DC, its probably not even 100K, he is probably more upset that Karlovic even brought up the whole money issue, i mean Ivan is doing pretty good with money, he is a co-owner a 5* hotel in Croatia, at this point of his career its all about winning matches and titles and money is just a +

There is such a term as making your own bed and sleeping in it, and that is what the Croatian Tennis authority has to do. Why should Ivo come running everytime they snap their fingers? Good on Karlovic! :bigclap:

Sorry, I mean if he were to actually seriously get hurt while playing in DC?

Why strain his shoulder more than need be?

Of course this is not how I feel but I see how he could think this.

I hope that Mario will play double, because without him, it will be difficult to win... but if is sick it is not his fault, you can't blame him... He loves davis cup and is very sad whan he can't play...
and if yesterday he said he was sick, it is true...
If it was ivan who lost against haas and sais he was sick, you wouldn't have blame him... It is just because you hate Ancic...
And losing against haas is not a bad result...

If Mario cant play we are out. We will loose the doubles and Ljubo will lose to Tommy on sunday.
Our chance is to win the doubles and Mario to beat Becker tomorrow.

yeah...:sad: haas is in great shape and ljubo isn`t...he`s playing too passive. I hope that mario feels better today. I doubt that we can win doubles without mario. We wouldnt be worried about doubles if Karlovic joined our team :mad: I dont understand how can people defend him, playing for your country should be a honour and it`s logical that karlovic gets less money then mario and ljubo because they do the most job in davis cup. ok,maybe karlovic should get a little more money,but it`s not right to leave national team because of that. and he did that 2 years in a row, so it`s obviousley that he doesn`t care for national team, all he cares about is money. if he cared for our team, he could swallow his pride and help our team!!

So, what you are saying is if we lose doubles today we are out?? I don't think so, Ljubo showed us how he can fight when he must, and he can beat Haas, of course he can. :rocker2:

Ljubo has 5% chances to beat Tommy imo.
Tommy plays unbelievable and Ljubo is very bad this year.

Already argued it, but for just for you sweetie, 9% is a complete insult. He should be getting 20%+.

Does it really matter if Ancic isn't 100%? All he has to do is serve and let Ljubicic do the rest. Ljubo has always been a one man Davis Cup team. ;)

Are you crazy? Ancic is the much better doubles player:worship:
Ljubo cant volley.

I am not pesimistic but i think that todays doubles will decide.
ljubo has achieved a lot but i am just saying that he isnt in form and
i dont count on him to beat Haas.

When you're serving big, you don't have to volley. All you have to do is SMASH.
