He did. Okay, well, not that I heard it. Christina has like super sonar hearing, or something. :lol: But after he told her, he decided to walk over to the chair, sit down, stretch himself out, and then started laughing at Dinara. I assume there was some sort of inside joke involved, which quite frankly, I prefer not to be privy to.

Hah!

There's just too many inside jokes between those two :tape: He's starting to act like a crazy :p

Now I'm not a body language expert but he had his arms closed which isn't very positive or confident. Wonder what she'll do if he just put his hand on her shoulder and looked into her eyes and said all she has to do is this and this and she can do it.

Quote from a year ago (http://sport.vesti.ru/sport/doc.html?id=345932)

After last year's U.S. Open Safina made the decision to replace the trainer: now it works Serb Zeljko Krajan. The tennis player admitted that it was him she owes her success. "I believe that I was destined from above to meet this man. It really helps that he believes in me. This coach has helped me find my game," - said Safina.

So God is a Dina/Z fan too? :p

vanúss
Oct 12th, 2009, 09:07 PM
OMG Sarah you freaked me out !!! i started reading right away without paying attention to the 'quote from a year ago' and though she had a new coach , a serbian one ( Marko crossed my mine for like 1 sec ) !

I believe that I was destined from above to meet this man.

:awww: of course , everything happen for a reason !
And :rolls: at what you said Sarah , God is a fan of them indeed :p ( love your sign and avatar by the way ;) )

If there weren't tennis racquets involved, I'd think they were playing cricket.

Something from the Australian Open

http://tennisfromthebackseat.blogspot.com/2009/01/domo-and-muzza-me-old-mates.html

I watched a bit of Jankovic, but then I heard a very familiar sounding shriek from the next court, so I mosied on over to Court 16 and caught the majority of Dinara Safina's practice - possibly the most unusual practice session I have seen yet. We've all read the stories of how Zeljko Krajan, her coach, has calmed her down and sorted her out on court, and it is my personal belief that he has done this by making her have all her temper tantrums in her practice sessions instead. Seriously, these two scream at each other like nothing else I have ever seen. I think I've commented on how much of a bitch Zeljko was to her during the oncourt coaching in the final of Sydney, and nothing was different here. Okay, so maybe they were a bit calmer, but this relationship has serious fire. If he wasn't wearing a wedding ring, wasn't five hundred years older and a foot shorter than she is, I'd think they were having some kind of clandestine love/hate relationship. But it's certainly working!

I opened the day watching Caroline Wozniacki practice for a bit, before settling in with some lunch and a glass of wine to catch a bit of Safina on the big screen - who, despite playing on the big arenas, is flying totally under the radar, and I think it is doing her the world of good. Sure, she hasn't faced any major tests yet... but remember the US Open. She got taken all the way by Olivia Rogowska and then lost to Petra Kvitova. She's into the round of sixteen without dropping a set, and that is very respectable. I still wouldn't pick her to win the tournament or anything, but I don't think she's going to embarass herself. Which is new and exciting for her, much as I hate to admit it.

I saw some of her practice yesterday, and she and Zeljko are as in each others' faces as they ever have been. There was a shaking of the racquet under Zeljko's nose and a whole lot of shouting. It is relationships like these that make it clear to me just how badly tennis needs a Gossip Girl style blog. 'Spotted: D and Z, passion on court, passion off court'.

Yes, I have this pet theory that Dinara and Zeljko are having an affair. Yes, I am very aware I am miles off base.

Miles off base ? Not so sure about that :p

DINARA SAFINA: The plan for me is to see the doctor as soon as possible to see exactly what happened. I don't know how I will pack my bags. I guess I will ask my team to help me to pack my bags, because I really don't know how to move now.

Looks like Marko will be getting a phone call after all :lol:

In what world are you living ? Blame it on Zeljko if it makes you feel better that's fine ( i decide to blame it on her doctor ) but don't say total :bs: like that . This is going way too far and it's too freaking easy to think like that as if Dinara doesn't have a brain of her own . I've read plenty of things on his case , some of them were true but this is by far the stupidest comment i had the misfortune to read . :help:

I sort of think, the reason why Z has been such a non factor for Dina so far in 2010 is cos he saw this coming but couldn't get her to stop playing tennis because she got the O.K from the doctor.

I know that Vaness you are upset, and I'm too... But Dina herself said couple of times that Zeljko has troubles with making her schedule, because this is his first time that he is training a pro... But he shouldn't let her playing on the AO...

(I know that I'm maybe making mistake, but I can't blame Dina... I'm can't help myself...) :sad:

Don't worry! You don't have to apologise for your post, honestly post what you want to. Every comment is welcome in the Domik. Everyone has different reactions and opinions and anyway Vanessa did say she was not in a good mood so she would've written that response to anyone :lol:

Perhaps he wanted her to play. Perhaps he didn't. We'll never know unless she says something. At the end of the day, it's up to Dinara. She's obviously capable of making her own decisions.

Ditto. She's an adult, this injury isn't new to her, and it's not her first year on tour.

Unfortunately, it's incredibly common for athletes to overestimate their bodies' capabilities because their drive to compete is so strong. My first instinct would be to say that Dinara herself was probably responsible for the decision to come to AO; but it's not something I could ever "blame" her for. It would be totally understandable. Anyway, as Sarah says, we'll never really know.

Croatian interview from early 2008. I don't think this was posted here at the time.

Working with Safina is a real pleasure

Zeljko Krajan all the known name in the coaching world top tennis. No wonder, therefore, the news that, although not yet turned 30 years old, but a few months working with the talented 22-year-old Russia's Dinara Safina.

It should be recalled that the gifted Vara×din was one of the Croatian players, but his career was interrupted by a series of injuries. In 2002, after a career best ranking (88th place), he had surgery on his right shoulder. After six months he returned to the field, slowly coming to the old position. Unfortunately, the time when the game returned to the level of the best days, 2004. In Umag, during the match with Moya, broke his right leg quadriceps. Doctors have given a completely wrong diagnosis, it was believed that the wounds heal, that it is only a small hematoma.

- It turned out that the injury was very serious, was a 13 cm long rupture. It is found only after two months and then it was too late to intervene. I tried to play a few tournaments, but the leg did not allow serious performances, so in 2005 decided in the 25th Playing career year end and focus on coaching job.

How did you become Dinara's coach?

- Last year, after the U.S. Open, Safina ended cooperation with the Dutch Glen Schaap and actively seeking a new coach. Since Dinara and Ivan Ljubičić have the same manager, Israeli Amit Noara, Croatian connection is alive. Ljubičić asked me what I do and I trained at that time two German gifted juniors - Gojowczyka and Sieber. Open the possibility of cooperation with Safina was great recognition for my three-year coaching work. We met in Monte Carlo, worked four days of training before the autumn indoor season in 2007. Then followed four tournaments and then the agreed two-year collaboration. At that time the Russian was 16th the WTA-rankings. In the meantime, to reach 13th places. Now she is 16th again due to changes in the calendar compared to last year. All together we want to return to the top ten. Her best performance was 9th place after the quarterfinals at Roland Garros.

How to work with the player to the all indicators belonging to the top of the world?

- I must emphasize that Dinara is a pleasure to work with. Maximum is paid to commitments and is always ready for cooperation. Before Charleston we were in a traditional base of Safina - Valencia. Regular training in Monte Carlo, where she has registered residence. Next week we will be in Munich and Berlin to hone the form of the tournament. Otherwise, Dinara is a 15-year-old won the first WTA-tournament (Sopot), indicating that it is very talented. Although it is still, and it can tell the coach that she already knows, only the 60 percent of their opportunities. Dinara no large hole in the game, but it is noticeable that should improve forehand. It should be noted that the tennis not only on the forehand, backhand, it is necessary to connect all relevant factors into a single entity - combining mental side, fitness, nutrition. Only by coming to the top of world tennis. Our goal is to re-enter the end of the year among the top ten, and we see great opportunity in Paris, where Safina traditionally good game.
