i know it's mens tennis, but: Ivanisevic hoping for one final hurrah

GORAN IVANISEVIC, who embodies the spirit of the great tennis warrior, intends to have a last crack at the sport that has made him an idol in his homeland of Croatia. Ivanisevic, the 2001 Wimbledon champion, has said yes to an invitation to the Milan Indoor Championship next week in the hope that he may yet have the strength for a tilt at former glories.
Ivanisevic has barely laid a hand on a racket for the past two years after surgery on his left shoulder in May 2002; last year he played three matches on the ATP Tour, in Dubai, Indian Wells and at the Stella Artois Championships at Queen’s Club, West London, and lost them all. His hope of returning to Wimbledon, having missed the chance to defend his title in 2002, was also dashed as his shoulder gave way under the strain.

The 32-year-old had wanted to be considered for Croatia’s World Group Davis Cup tie against France, in Metz this weekend, but he was not selected, with Mario Ancic and Ivan Ljubicic chosen instead. As such, his hopes rest on what has to be considered a final roll of the dice. He has accepted a wild card into Milan and we all know what wild cards can do for him.

Ivanisevic would have loved to have led his country to triumph in the Davis Cup, which resumes today less than a week after the first grand-slam championship of the year ended.

ugh, why do they all suck????????
