Ma re, what is the name of school (program) in Croatian?

Ps. Wasn't there a case when someone threw a paparazzi in the sea when Beyonce was here?
But I agree, celebrities who come usually manage to stay under the radar for the most part
Of course I have been It is a beautiful country. I have in fact been twice
It's cool you are a student? Do you play tennis at a high level?

So she is only 1 year behind. In Europe they don't tend to accelerate people like they do here

I'm in Croatia a lot, but always in the same place :/

I've been playing tennis for less than a year, so at a very low level I did other sports before. How much do you practice?

She's not really behind

Re: Ana Konjuh

Why would you say she's behind She hasn't skipped a year or anything. She'll be starting her 10th year of schooling before her 16th birthday (started school at 6).

I play between 4 and 7 times a week with extra fitness

As for being in Croatia, I am so jealous. Such a cool place. My Top 10 in Europe

Re: Ana Konjuh

And how long have you been playing?


What do you learn at the age of 4? it probably depends on how the program is organized and how important preschool is in different places

I haven't realized there's a difference. Here we start at either 6 or 7, the choice is on parents.

Ana Konjuh blog: A chance to relax

After spending two months on the sidelines nursing an arm injury, world Junior No. 2 Ana Konjuh returned to action in May to compete on the ITF Pro Circuit and at the mid-summer junior Grand Slams. She reached back-to-back finals at $25,000 ITF Pro Circuit events in Maribor and Montpellier, winning her first pro circuit title at the latter, and the semifinals at both junior Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Here, the 15-year-old Croatian blogs about her eventful summer and taking a well-earned break.

Iím on holiday at home in Dubrovnik this week and itís been really nice to have a rest and be with my family for a little bit. Iíve played a lot of tennis in the last couple of months so a break is really important, and Iím really happy to be with my family because I donít really get a chance to see them too much.

Iím doing some fitness while Iím on holiday but thereís no tennis at all for four days. The fitness isnít anything too serious, just enough to keep me in shape. My coach, Kristian Schneider, sends me an email with the things I have to do Ė just general fitness and stretches, some running and stuff like that. I probably spend about an hour and a half on a session, and do that two times over four or five days while Iím on holiday.

She's not famous at all. Rare people know her only because of tennis. Dubrovnik is small town, practically everyone knows everyone, so most did heard about her, but don't recognize her. Only people who know her say hi to her on beach or even notice her, it's at least my impression 'cause I'm not stalking her or something
