DC 1st Round: Defending champions start their mission in Austria
 
Ajmo dečki ! ! !

Kick some ass! Please... :angel:

*Austria vs. Croatia

Although playing away from home, Croatia, the defending Davis Cup champions, would appear to be favorites entering this tie. Ivan Ljubicic comes in having lost only one match so far this season, and with two 2006 titles under his belt. The Austrians have opted to play on red clay, which would give them a slight advantage, as it would take some zing off of the Croatians’ serves and attacking power. All in all it should be a tight tie, but the Croatians should be able to move a step closer to defending their title.

Teams:

Croatia:
Ivan Ljubicic; Mario Ancic; Ivan Cerovic; Marin Cilic.

Austria:
Jurgen Melzer; Stefan Koubek; Julian Knowle; Alexander Peya.

Ok sweetie, maybe I should have posted it there, but oh well :p

I didn't read everything there, so sorry if I repeat sth.

Born: September 28, 1988. in Mostar (hehe) and lives in Međugorje, which is a place maybe 30 kilometers from where I live at the moment (Mostar) :p

Plays with right hand (double-handed backhand)
He won Junior Roland Garros last year, started playing tennis at the age of 7. In 2004 was European Champion for the age of 16. Right now is ranked #1 or #2 in Juniors, not sure. Fav surface - hard, says his career goal is to win Wimbledon. He jumped 108 places up in the rankings after ZI, played only his 2nd ATp match against Andreev, previously lost in the first round in Umag last year. I watched the match against Igor, he played really good, good serve, good ground strokes, really you wouldn't say he's still Junior, at least he was like that in that match. :)
He has his chances in 2nd round too, lost against Seppi in 3 sets. I hope he'll play this weekend, maybe in a dead rubber, actually I'm pretty sure he will.

And of course, some pics:

:woohoo: so so thanks honey :kiss:

yea, i knew him last year, but before he got Juniors RG trophy, if i was right, from Orangebowl perhaps. last year, Andy M was too hot at RG, god bless Marin over him which made me happy though i didnt know at that time one day I would like him so much :lol: and you are right, now he is the world no.1 already :)

in my memory, he has another goal to into top 50 in ATP :yeah: and his cousin gave him the first racquet and the key now, he likes Marat Safin most which made me so surprised but sorry i didnt know why i was surprised :lol:

I so wanna wait for his performance at DC for his first time :angel:

btw, i enjoy his hair style most among all the Croa guys :p better than Mario's :lol:

and dear, if possible, tell me what he said after the two matches coz i couldnt see any in English, pls :kiss:
