OMG Goran, I miss the way he used to break his rackets :hearts:
Oh, I remember once Marat used him as an example when asked about what his opinion was about other players hitting or breaking their rackets and he said it was ok if they were going to break it like a man like Goran did cuz some players hit their rackets but they didn't get them broken (or something like that, can't remember exactly) :p

Interview with Zeljko in Slovakian paper:

TENNIS
Nobody wanted to do with it, talking about her coach Safinovej

Kiššimon Viktor, truth | Jul 6 2009 9:24

"Dinar I ever knew. Nothing I knew about it. Even how to look," recognized in an exclusive interview with the Truth, Zeljko compatriot. The Thirty Years' Croatia is already two year coach of the Russian tennis player Dinar Safinovej. In April, it led to the first location worldwide WTA Tour.

As a professional tennis you got the first lot. Then came injury and had to quit you. How long have you struggled with the decision to end?
Injury came when I was still only 24 years. Year lasted until he was a bit together. I started to train, but to me ached. I played a long match and came back pain. Year and a half, I tried, but went further to already. Due to the poor rehabilitation, which I naordinovali after injury.

When you stop as a player, did you know that you will coach?
Not at all. Year, I think what I do. Whether I go home to Croatia, where the parents have a company, or try to practice in Munich, where I also lived.

You TrÚnovali juniors in Germany and then came the offer to go to Dinara Safinovej. It was not too great leap?
Safinovej managers wanted to have acted as a second coach. I had rather be a sparring partner to assist the Chief koučov, which was known to the Swiss Heinz GŘnthardt. Surely you know, for trained and Steffi Graph. Such cooperation lasted three or four months. Me, disliked, how they did. GŘnthardt it is not time. And no, the whole system of training I nepozdßval. After last year's Australian Open, I do not have to watch it. Dinara I said, let me decide whether it wants to do with me or with him.

How you Dinara impressed at the first meeting?
I never knew it. Nothing I knew about it. Even the way it looks. I knew only that she is the sister Marata (former male world entity). From the very beginning but I found that has great potential. I have taken over as the eighteenth toy world. Today is the unit. Infernally trÚnerovřm believes words can be dealt with very well done.

What you mali overview of the female tennis?
Almost none. I have never tried is checking for the female tennis. I know about the best five tenistiek world. Therefore I need three or four months, so I know how it works. I have heard from various parties, this is terrible. You have to experience to understand. So women are completely different robot than with men. Mentally more difficult.

Try to name the biggest difference?
With women it's everyday job. They do not have enough natural self-esteem than men. Seen to many examples where the player in 25 years burned. Mental fails. Tennis every day brings a lot of stress and have more women admit. In every training and want to be too perfect to push saw.

You have to Dinaro rules that must be followed?
It can be done 24 hours a day. That's great. But on the other hand, wanted to go in every practice and to three hundred percent. This was a little problem. I tried to settle it, to try free. Then do it better. I tell her that this training is not our last. Let them slowly, because the head needs to relax.

As it is true? Good word, raised voices, the cry?
Certainly no outcry. This makes the line. In the past, the coaches, who in her vrieskali week after cooperation. For it is true rotation increased voice with a good word.

On the court acts as a bundle of nerves. As though he were still under stress. What is outside the courts?
For it is only tennis. Even outside the court it does not fail. This is completely different than Marat. Still thinks tennis and whether to do things correctly. In all a huge profesionßlka. Unable to disable it. Sometimes it would need. But on the other hand, without the strict discipline would be the world.

Dinara is a lucky man?
Hard to say. In life and in tennis? I think it's lucky. Because her life is tennis. And it is successful. Assumed that if they won the Grand degrees, the change and start taking more mimotenisovř life.

Her brother Marat Safin is successful tennis players. Nerada but talk about it. What relationship together?
Excellent. When Marat was at the peak, also grudgingly talked about the younger sister. They are awfully happy. Marat but loathe weeding in her tennis life and tennis with her or does not want to have fun. When Dinara wanted to change the coach, so he always asked advice from a brother. Marat did not want anyone to recommend it, because he would not take responsibility.

Dinara is a global entity. Three times already in the finals of Grand Slam tournaments and always lost it. What was wrong?
Error is the only one - can not emotional. Final match was the worst recent one in Paris. The Kuznecovovej felt the favorite. Took too runaway. Was unable to maintain a cool head. Dinara still needs to happen a number of similar games to get used to a similar position. But on the other hand, can be any further Failure Grand Finals very dangerous for the psyche and confidence.

What do you most like to work, you have yet to Dinaro done?
To that I have managed to change its mentality. Everyone knows that it has to be a great player, but none of it would not work. Since it is apparently too complicated, and very unruly. That is always a problem and still crying. This is already history.

How you been?
When we started, was completely at the bottom. No one has neverila. Neither mother nor father. And to me some very helpful. Many we talked. She poč˙vala and tried to take something from my advice. Then they try to apply to the court and to work. She began to trust me. Trust is essential. Now I no longer believe a hundred percent.

He speaks the truth, and staircase Safinovß really is the best tennis player in the world?
Now would be a lot of controvert. If we were to take under the Grand Slam tournaments, is not. Serena Williams in their last wins almost all the time. But Dinara benefits that can play throughout the season on a high level. On the biggest tournaments regularly receives far and the winner of the category below. It is able to go the whole season. Williams sisters not. Play for only five-six major events and then take a semi-holiday. In my opinion this is not correct, but they are older and this system suits them. I respect the ranking list and he says that Dinara is the best.

How to deal with moments of strain in the gallery? The television cameras cut looks peaceful.
I am also very difficult to manage (laughs). I am quite temperamental and would like to make a circus gallery, but my player I should have nepomohol. Therefore, we must always remain calm.

By the peak of tennis in recent years are still only a young player from Eastern Europe. In the past, developed countries though zaspali tennis. Why is this so?
This is the mentality. You may not see another way to promote how to be successful. As toys stands the entire family. Parents wishing to meet the children through their dreams. Because many victims, constantly monitor their tennis development and to create often unbearable pressure. Western mentality is different. They know that not many tennis sacrifice, as they have many other options, how to be successful in life. They are not willing for him to work hard. Many, therefore, end up very soon. But he survives, it will be a player of his quality.

The best toys for tournaments royal care. How so, their coaches?
I can not complain. I have everything I need. Although I feel that coaches men are more respected by the organizers. After graduating from tennis obligations, however, try to be as much outside the area.

What tennis player need more - a psychologist or a coach, which they learn the proper tip to balls?
Depending on age. Toys older than twenty year has hardly learn a new stroke technique. During the two years in a female tennis champion, I noticed that ninety percent of coaching players who have managed technology, rather they are psychologists. Dinara has more or less the same punches as two years ago, but we have much work to sebavedomÝ.

For women, the circuit moves a lot of successful young coaches. Zßjdete together occasionally for beer?
I understand you very well with the government PlßtenÝkom, which trains your talented Cibulkova. And yet there is a couple of Croatian coaches. But when I am in the legs from eight in the morning and evening, leaving eight of courts, so I want to have time for himself. When the tournament for me so my family and I with her.

What do you think of the Slovak tennis player?
The female tennis, you are on the very, very well. You have three very good player (Cibulkova, Hantuchova, Rybarikova) and you can make a strong fedcupovř team.

Talk together in Slovak. How do you remember to act in Bratislava?
When I was young, I trained in Germany in Monte Carlo, but the most I could operate in Bratislava under the direction ĽubomÝra Kurhajca. It was fifteen years ago, and the atmosphere was great for training. At times I bratislavskÚ beautiful memories.

In recent weeks you have been in a merry-go-round. Long clay season culminated in the finals at Roland Garros and Wimbledon came now. As you rested?
Zastihli you just have to leave. Once on the second day after falling at Wimbledon, I went to one of the Croatian islands. Enjoy leisure time with his wife. We also have a two-year daughter, so I cared for a perfect relaxation. I need some ten days, that I zregeneroval head (smiles).

I got sent the article and google translate is hilarious.


Croatian Captive
Hole in the cover of secrecy envelops all these years, the mystery called źDinara╗, has been seen as the Croatian press. A year ago, my mother hired a coach Zeljko Dinara Krazhana. Croatia in its time was messmate Marata in childhood and often came to visit Safin.According to unofficial data (and the other in the history of Dinara simply can not find), then Dinara and fallen in love with the guest, and this feeling has kept until now, So when my mother hired Krazhana, Safin almost flew from happiness. True, a man this dream has He has forbidden it is sweet and forced to train four times a day.
Recently Krazhan forced the Trust to move from Moscow in a quiet town in northern Croatia - Varazdin, formerly known only for its pig farms. Thus, Krazhan, as he assured the local journalists, decided to hide from the world's first racket of its many fans in Russia. However, the Croatian tabloid has another version Safin moved into the hole.Mol, Croats took her in Vara×din only in order to nobody could prevent them from living together. With a sweet, as you know, heaven in a cottage, even if the pig heaven!

the comments are hilarious, they ALL think it's the shittiest piece of journalism they've encountered :lol:

Curiously, the language in which you are talking with Krajan?

- Russian, he knows well, but I do not speak Croatian.

In other words, in English, he picked the words that you believe in yourself again?

- Well, yes.

- He is a young coach. And likeable. The truth?

- Truth, said Dinara and was for some reason flooded by crimson. Zeljko is two years older than my brother. They and Marat often played in some tournaments, even for boys.

Greg Garber (12:22 PM)

Her coach, Zeljko Krajan comes into our International Press room after matches to hang with his Croatian scribe buddies. I was kidding him about how grumpy he always looked when the camera went to him. And he said Safina's game "p---ed" him off. That is going to be a tough job rebuilding her confidence.

Old quotes about Z from Dina's Russian interviews (all google translated)

Previous coaches supposedly humiliated you. Everything was so bad?

Just too often they are forgotten, and place themselves above the player - this is the biggest mistake many coaches. Zeljko province, with whom I work now, every time I said: if you do not satisfied, you should come and say, rather than remain silent aside. Because you are the most important in a team, and then a coach and all the rest. You know, this is the first person who told me this, and that I really liked it.

For a long time dreamed to be the leader?

Just tired, when someone imposes their views. I want to live in a hotel, where I want, I want to have in the restaurant, where I want, not where someone satisfied. I have understood, that it is necessary to show more the "I". This is not to be complete egoist, but in the team the dictator should be I.

Previously, this was not?

Prior to my desires to anyone particular case was not just to raise my voice - and that's it. With the previous coach - Dutch Glen Shaapom - too often did not understand each other because of this and separated, though Sporting results were quite good. For me it was an invaluable experience: I realized that I need a coach, friend, with whom one can talk not only about tennis.

With Zeljko Krajan have become friends?

He is to me already as a second brother - I can share with him anything and I will be sure that it is none of this does not tell you. Before some matches, I was so tired - felt that more could not. Approached him and and said: everything they say, will not work. After he tried to talk me as a setup, and very often it works, because I was talking with a friend. And those coaches who have a high opinion of themselves, have no thought, saying: you do not want - it is not necessary, these are your problems.

Dinara, you have a very good tandem with your coach. What, you think the secret of this understanding?

We often laugh and joke. For me a good sense of humor - one of the qualities that I appreciate most. But he also demanding coach who knows what I need to do in any given situation. Maybe because he is never satisfied, leads me to train more and more to prove to him that all I can.

Btw I'm retracting my statement he is a Scott Byrnes look-a-like. I'm now believing (thanks to a user on twitter) that it's a younger and stress free (and hopefully not married :rolleyes:) version of Z! :p

That person sounds super awesome. :)

And modest....

I kinda assumed the new dude is her physio although the only proof I have of that are the photos of him adjusting her and feeling her neck.

But really, I find it :lol: that in over a year of photos of Zeljko and Dejan I never saw either of them every touch her. Dejan seemed particularly good and keeping his distance. :) Now this guy is touching her left and right. Who are you?

Okay, after I managed to pick my eyes up off the floor after seeing that a 9-year-old has her own website :rolleyes: and jackets with her website's URL on the back :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:, I noticed this in with her pictures of her "ideals" (hee):

More (google translated) quotes...

What is the secret of your incredible physical training this season, led to withstand terrible Olympic marathon?

My Croatian coach said the key to success - in the head. Sometimes, of course, as in the finale: trying to make - but has no power. But the day before, for example, I could tell myself in a match with Jankovic: "You should take it. Through the force, not through" in the past, despite the fact that the public supported the rivals. This is more psychology than physics.

On the other hand, I have trained this year, so ... I have been training much more difficult than most major matches at tournaments. In this sense, with a coach, I was lucky: he found my game. And outside the court it can be approached with any problem: will listen, will help, will suggest. I remember in Montreal before the finale, I had hysterics, forces are no longer left to play. But the trainer somehow through conversation, through calmness has forced me to gather, to go to court and win. Otherwise, the ball could be shot on a platform at the nerves, as well ... I thank him.

Your work with the Croatian coach Zeljko Krajan finally beginning to bear fruit. And what gave you your new coach?

Belief in myself. But it is now easy to say, after my recent success. And when we started, everything was not so obvious. I had many insulting defeats when I released the competitors from five match points leading to the large margin in the account. I even cried, cursed himself for the fact that I can do nothing with myself. But little by little the situation nevertheless turned for the better.

Can you say a few words about your collaboration with the Croatian coach Krajan? How satisfied are you with it?

Yes, I am happy. We have been working together for more than six months, and I like everything. I think he knows what does. He is young, but he knows that tennis is that it should do and what to do to become better I play. So I do not have any of the claims.

More recently, he played and participated in competitions. This is an advantage or disadvantage - a coach who just took part in professional tournaments?

He played in the ATP-tour, and he is familiar with all this. He knows that I can feel it. Sometimes I feel totally shattered, and someone in such a case might say: so what? But he understands it. And he said: well, you just try. He knows how to help cope with the situation. I think that I accurately described the coach who can help themselves out of difficult situation.

~Kiera~
Jul 18th, 2009, 07:52 PM
These are old ones from her US Open (English language) press conferences, but I don't think they've been posted in here already.

Q. Can we clarify what your coach told you before?

DINARA SAFINA: No. I mean, after the match ‑‑ after the warm‑up I just started to cry. I said, I cannot push anymore myself. He said, We know that you're not a machine. Just go out there and don't thinking.

He told me again, Just please don't show me any emotions, like these negative emotions. If you want, don't show even positive. Just go on the court and do whatever you can this day.

If it's 20% left from your body, just give this 20%. Don't use another percent just throwing the balls around and shouting.

He said, Whatever you have, just try to concentrate and put it into the game. So that's what I did today.

Q. Were you really crying?

DINARA SAFINA: Ask my coach. I could not stop from crying, yeah. So I guess he knows how to handle my emotions.

Q. You talked a little bit about that few days ago the team around you, about your coach in particular, and that you feel you're on the same page. What has that relationship been like?

DINARA SAFINA: He was also a player, so he knows exactly how I feel. For me it's easier to communicate. I found a person I can trust, and I can say, Okay, I'm getting nervous. At least he knows what is these feelings nervous.

It's not somebody who never played. He cannot get exactly these feelings what you can feel on the court. So with these kinds of things he helps me also to control my emotions.

Okay, I never seen him play. Actually we played one year the same year, but I never seen him play. But he said that I'm on the court exactly like him. So I guess he knows what I was going through or what I'm going through some moments on the court.

He tries to help me, so I think this is the good thing that he understands me.

Q. How did you guys find each other, or you how did that work out?

DINARA SAFINA: Whew. It's a funny story. Last year I knew that after US Open I'm going to stop with my ex‑coach that I had. Then I wanted to work with Heinz Guenthardt, and he could not travel a lot.

So we needed to find a guy who could, like, they could both work with me. And I need to thank Ivan Ljubicic, because he advise me him.

We started to work after US Open. After Australia, I felt like with Heinz it was a little bit difficult to work, because he could not spend so much time with me, like basically full time I needed coach.

Then I decided, okay, I'm going to work with him. First we give a try until French Open. Oh, well, it turned out really good, and now we working together.

So I think even Ljubicic I need to thank or invite for a dinner.

Q. You talked the other day about Marat, one of the things he worked with you when you were younger, was that you would cry and get very, very emotional. I think he said, as an example, don't act like me. He talked about that, also in his press conference shortly thereafter. Is that a bit of a family trait, to sort of wear your emotions on your sleeve? And if so, is that something that you really work really hard on keeping in control, so that when things don't go so well you can regroup?

DINARA SAFINA: Yeah. Because this thing I can say that the tennis coach he help me to kind of to keep more quiet, because sometimes I would get very disappointing on myself or be very hard on myself.

It was kind of like I would play the match and I would show to everybody like, You see. I'm trying hard and it's just not going my way. Then I would kind of show it to everybody.

He would say, You don't need to show me that you are not feeling. I can see it. And try just to don't show to your opponent. So these kind of things he said, like, I know how you feel.

So to me you don't have to impress or whatever, or start to cry that you are tired. I know that you're tired. Just go out there, do what you can. And somehow with the talking, communicating with each other, I think this is the main thing we communicate with each other and he's understanding me.

That's why I start, like, kind of, okay, you know, he knows that, I guess, I don't feel maybe one of the shots. He sees this. I'm trying to be positive on the shot, and then of course the match finish.

Okay, we discuss about the match and we go straight on the court and work on the shot what was missing.

His wish was that, under the acting career, which was ended prematurely because of injuries, became coach of the men in tennis, but it landed in the female. And this fully on top of the #1 player in the world calls him big boss.

Portorož - Zeljko Krajan last year took over Dinara Safina, he took her very quickly to 1st position in the world, under his leadership, the Russian has lost ten kilograms, to now a total failure to win on the hunt for the Grand Slam tournaments. Croat, who was at the highest ATP ranking rose to 88 in the world, is one most deserving, that Safina has decided to appear in Portorož, the tournament is on its protÚgÚe, traps women's tennis and the like also spoke of the work.

Because you were always a player, be able to assess how much easier it is to succeed in women's tennis than men?

I would not say that it is easier. I think this is difficult to compare because these are two sports. When I was a player, I also thought it was much harder to get than women, but he must look at this through, that it is completely different body, woman tolerate much less and for them it is all together equally demanding as for men. As for the competition is always very exiting five and is now a much wider circle.

You have said that they are two completely different worlds. What do you see major differences in?

For men, the tennis is faster, better, more aggressive, again because of physical ability. For women, however, sometimes all looks more interesting because it involved a lot more emotion, more arguments.

What must have a coach in women's tennis have?

It is a lot of patience and understanding. This is the most important, more so than tennis knowledge. The coach must also be a psychologist, brother, father, everything. With men it is less work, and explain why ... The player requests the coach a lot more nerves, life time.

How do I feel the coach Dinara Safina at the stage where we know that can do more than ten double faults, can win 6:0, 6:0, and also lose 0:6, 1:6?

Now I have a lot easier when I found that she was unpredictable. Some things simply have to accept. Of the twenty things to say, the change from the beginning of our cooperation, it has so far 16, 17 cracked, three, four, perhaps never will. She isn't perfect, nobody is. She will have problems to the end of her end of her career, there will always be things on which we have to work. Every day you get some new problem.

This time it's probably her service.

Yes, but last year for example she served excellently. Forehand, the two months in order, but then again, not two, etc. Maybe two or three tournaments a year she plays perfectly, all others are fighting with everything possible. Now the problem with the service and some forehand, in a few months will be backhand, and so on. So to her acting.

It has a large reserve in the impact or the "head"?

First, in the head. In sports, tennis is normal, but in Dinara is this extreme, I would say that in the 90 per cent of all starts in the head. On the tennis side, has no borders, can do everything not to impact moves, which could not, if would not be super talented, it would not be number 1 The question is, how much does her head allow her to play tennis and how much is fear breaking things down.

How to work in the family, in which the mother coach, brother of top-class player, the father of the owner tennis center?

I have a good, decent, relationship with her parents. We don't meet much. The parents are here in Portorož, before that they were with us last year in Paris. They come sometimes, when we train in between two tournaments, and assist in matters not related to tennis, they aren't mixing in my work. Well I do not have the feeling that the mother coach. This seems somewhat strange that, as with us in Croatia all begins with their parents, they all depend, in Dinara have a main floor managers. The relationship is therefore exactly like it should be. Here are the coach and the manager and this is it, the parents did not come. Even the brother of their experience fear involved. Even in the choice of coach he wanted to suggest nothing to her, although the wealth of experience. Simply refusing to interfere, it would not be anything of a fault.

Recently, many discussions, which the law No. 1, or actress, who is this time the winner of three Grand Slam tournaments, then Serena, or just Dinara. How do you see that?

In fact, I laugh. Serena and Venus consciously pursuing such a pressure, which they have little to learn a father, and to them very well and thrive. If you would like to be No Serena. 1, then there should be a special scale for the Grand Slam, but this is not, never has been and is not nor will it. If she thinks she can only play four tournaments annually, and will be the first player the world she is wrong and has problems with mathematics. Not only Grand Slam that considered, it is necessary to play all year, but Serena is incapable of this. Unfortunately, it is Dinara left to get caught to this play of Williams sisters.

Well, in the semifinal of Wimbledon is Venus Dinara cornered with a 6:1, 6:0 ...

I don 't care if Dinara loses 0:6, 0:6 or 3:6, 3:6. Even if Venus played with a lot of life, would not have won. The result of 1:6, 0:6 is not nice to see, but on the other hand, is insignificant, in this duel did not have any options. Venus is on this surface a much better player than Dinara. And also Serene, which is why I am not clear how she could lose final.

How do you experience Dinara unsuccessful hunt to win at the tournament for the Grand Slam. It is all due to the burden?

It isn't a burden so much, but rather to require a lot of time to mature in all. She must often be through certain things to get the experience, unlike Williams or Maria Šharapova. They are born winners. Dinara is completely normal player, not programmed champion, she trains normally, she has her problems and may also be due to some of the mind, that is number 1. The victory in the grand slam needs a lot more final as some of the other, although there are, on the other hand, the danger that too will be blown in the desire, if it will be a few failed.

You will very disappointed if they will not never won a Grand Slam tournament?

No. Before we started to cooperate, has ranged between 15 and 20 position in the world and there have always seen many. For such an player to get to No. 1 with great success, as the final Grand Slam tournaments and the ownership of the first level. She was not "material" for the No. 1, that is why her success for me is exceptional.

Thanks, Sarah. :) His hair grows super duper fast.

Zeljko's obvious dislike of Serena never fails to amuse me.

I don't know when he took to wearing a cross but that will keep me amused for a while.

So true Vanessa, Z is so quotable indeed :lol:

and again google translation and the acting thing, well I can totally see that: Z the lead actor and Dina the lead actress, however I wonder what type of movie is it going to be: action, romance, action, romance, action, romance, tough call :scratch: maybe action with a romantic touch :p

Well. That was quite simply the best article I have ever read. In my life.

And this fully on top of the #1 player in the world calls him big boss.

If she thinks she can only play four tournaments annually, and will be the first player the world she is wrong and has problems with mathematics.

Good God man! that was amaze-balls! And Z has never had an english interview? :eek: We need to get Drew on it!! How you can miss the opportunity to interview this man is beyond me :p

She will have problems to the end of her end of her career, there will always be things on which we have to work. Every day you get some new problem.

Alas, tis true. But I'm rejoicing at the fact that his work with her will never end until she retires :devil:

First, in the head. In sports, tennis is normal, but in Dinara is this extreme

Sehr gut Herr Krajan...your psycholgical analysis is brilliant!

In fact, I laugh. I'm just imagining him to stroke his velour robe and take a big gulp of wine from his goblet :p

Dinara left to get caught to this play of Williams sisters.

:lol: I know this is google translate but the metaphor is surprising apt. Dinara the foreign understudy with the WS getting all the lead roles and winning the Tonys every year :p

She was not "material" for the No. 1, that is why her success for me is exceptional.

:awww: Ending the interview on a good, positive note. :yeah:

Great interview! His comments on the no. 1 ranking were accurate and also, extremely fun to read. :devil: It's kind of funny though because maybe his comments just sound so "evil master-ish"/confrontational because of the translation. Still, it's awesome the way it is. :lol:

Maybe it's because of all of you but when I read the interview and they asked him about what a women's tennis coach should have, I imagined him saying:

"The coach must also be a psychologist, brother, father, love--*oops*, I mean just everything, you know?" :angel:

:haha:i though that too but didn't mentionned it .
End your sentence with "everything" nice way out Krajan ;):p

And yeah it's probably because of us , after a week here i made a video , i've been brainwashed really fast :lol:

Thanks Sarah,
Z only speaks the truth. His disdain at the idea that Dina is undeserving of her no.1 spot is amazing.

I would also like to give Mr. 700000% a great big :lol: for talking about Mathematics.
