Ah well, Mario put up a great fight! But was beaten by the better man on the day.
Still, what a talent for the future. Sure to be one to watch next year. He can go back to Split for a big party with Goran!

Radda...I just loved reading that! Goran is SO funny! The bit from the Croation press about 'Henman Hill' had me in stitches! Mario put up a brave fight today, and I'm sure the title will be his one day.
Pen.
