New article from The Telegraph, 02 December 2005 -

Whether Goran Ivanisevic swings a racket or not, this weekend is likely to be remembered as his Davis Cup final should Croatia win the sport's most prestigious team competition.

New article -

Ivanisevic is still frequently stopped by compatriots telling him how much he has inspired them, although his status as a national hero is somewhat out of kilter with the relatively humble position he fills these days as assistant to Croatia's Davis Cup captain, Nicky Pilic. Pilic has said that he will stand aside as soon as Ivanisevic wants to take on the captaincy himself, but Ivanisevic is in no rush... read more
