"YOU NEVER KNOW WITH ME." - WE KNOW THAT GORAN
Why the media seemed so surprised that Goran Ivanisevic's luck has changed dramatically since his Wimbledon triumph, is a mystery. Among others, Germany's Sport-Bild carried the story of how his Porsche Carrera was wrecked after he lent it to a friend, but anyone who knows the man himself will tell you that this is just another day in the life of the crazy Croat. Prior to the Samsung Open in Brighton last year, Ivanisevic was asked about his chances. He replied that anything could happen because, "You never know with me." He was right. Roughly in the following order, Ivanisevic retired from that tournament because he'd smashed every racquet in his bag, lost in the qualifying rounds of the Australian Open, played in a challenger where he had to rent his own practice balls, then won Wimbledon. The only wonderfully certain thing with Ivanisevic, is that nothing is certain.
