it seems i will love him after a short time, so if you have more info about him, pls pls tell me, anything is ok, though there is a thread for him on Croa part here, too little indeed
Ok sweetie, maybe I should have posted it there, but oh well
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)
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:
