Guys sorry about my english....
Also.... WHT A DUCE - hope you gonna stop accusing me now of spreading wrong information here on this forum. I've said a month ago that Prague will be 1st tournament which Sprem will play and that she is going to miss fed cup. That info I've got from my friend - he is a good friend of Sprem. I guess Sprem and her team decided to come to the states and play those 2 tournament (good decision).
Also, you'll see that i was right about Dokic as well...about her life in Zagreb...she lives with her mum and she is planning to play itf tournament in Zagreb in may...
So plz stop talking bullsh**** about me here. I think I have better connections here in Croatia about tennis players from Croatia then you from Canada....
PETAK, 11. TRAVNJA
Kako ocjenjuješ susret s Lindsay?
Šteta, velike šteta. Protiv Hantuchove sitnice su otišle na moju stranu, a danas protiv Davenport je bilo obrnuto. Tako je to katkad u sportu. Najvažnije jest da je ruka dobro. Ipak sam odigrala pet mečeva!
U 4. igri 2. seta Davenport je odigrala najbolje u čitavom susretu. Napravila sam break, servirala za 3-1, ali je suparnica odlično reternirala, poslala nekoliko teških lopti koje nisam uspjela vratiti. Vratila sam se u nastavku, nakon 2-4, a onda mogu samo žaliti na 4-5, budući da sam očekivala da ću to bolje odigrati. Nisam bila ni umorna ni nervozna, odlučio je dobar retern Davenportove. Znala sam da ona dobro vraća druge servise, tako da sam u cijelom susretu malo više riskirala. Ne mogu si ništa prebaciti, napravila sam i više što sam očekivala. Jasno, ostaje žal za malom šansom, ali sveukupno moram biti zadovoljna. Nakon godinu dana sve je bilo više nego solidno.
Sutra se vraćamo kući, a onda slijedi Prag. Najvjerojatnije kvalifikacije. Vidjet ćemo što je dalje, sa zaštićenim rejtingom mogu igrati osam turnira. Gotovo sigurno ću igrati u glavnom turniru Roland Garrosa, ali još dvojim treba li odabrati taj turnir ili Wimbledon, budući da imam pravo na jedan Grand Slam.
Fed Cup je pred vratima?
Prpić me nije zvao u posljednje vrijeme, sigurna sam da je izbornik računao na mene da bi se već javio. Trenutačno se želim posvetiti sebi, želim se vratiti među najbolje, ali je činjenica da sam uvijek govorila da želim igrati u reprezentaciji. Budući da se Prag križa s FED Cupom i budući da me nitko nije zvao, teško da ću moći zaigrati za reprezentaciju.
Your opinion about match with Davenport?
Shame, so shame.... Little details went on my side in match with Hantuchova, and today with Davenport was the other way around. Sometimes it goes like that in sport. The most important thing is that my hand is ok, after all I've played 5 matches here.
In the 4th game of 2nd set Davenport played the best tennis of this match. I've done break, had a serve for 3-1 but Davenport played great returns on my serve and I couldn't do anything. Later on after 2-4 I've returned in the match and at 4-5 I could just feel sorry because I was expecting to play better. I wasn't nervous or tired, the key was great return from Davenport. I knew it that she has a great return especially on the 2nd serve so I was taking more risk on my 2nd serve.
I can't be disappointed, I've done better then I was expecting in the tournament, of course I could use my chances that I had in match with Davenport so feel little bit sorry in that way but overall I have to be satisfied . After a year this is more then solid.
Tomorrow me and my team (therapist, sparing partner and coach) are going back home to Croatia.. My next tournament is Prague - probably qualification. Will see what will be after that. With protected ranking which I have I can only play 8 tournaments. Most probably I will play in the main draw of Roland Garros but still not sure should I play Roland Garros or Wimbledon because I can only play 1 grand slam with the protected ranking.
Fed cup coach Goran Prpic didn't call me in the last couple of weeks.I'm sure if he was counting on me against serbia he would call me. At the moment I wanna work on my tennis, wanna be again in the top where i belong - but it is a fact also that I always played for fed cup and don't have problem with that. Prague is crossing with fed cup and since nobody called me i doubt i will play for Croatia against Serbia.
