24 March 2002

I've added a new article from the Nasdaq-100 Open 2002

'And I was hoping, you know, yesterday was okay play. But today it was not good. I mean, the doctor told me it's a lottery. It's a lottery which one week can be good, three weeks can be bad. And that's why I didn't want to operate last year, because I thought with the amount of pain I had last year I could survive another year. But I was not thinking it was going to be worse, which it is...'[ click to read more ]

13 March 2002

Added a new article from December 1992:

Sure, there is more than tennis. I am a little bit sick of the -- not sick, but you can have time that you want to do other things. I cannot do family because family, kids and dog, but I can go out with some friends and do some other sports, what I like, because I am interested in all the other sports, soccer, basketball, so I like to change a little bit...

'This court is better for me because it's fast. But he is a tough opponent, I can lose to him,' he said. 'I can do well, but I can also lose.'...[click to read more]

From 2001:
Definitely not normal. Serving for match point today at Louis Armstrong Stadium against Hugo Armando, Ivanisevic paused a moment to acknowledge the crowd. "To have fun," he said, explaining why he did that...[click to read more]

I never saw so many people watching me first round. I said, "What's going on here?" I was like, "Wow." Then I was very nervous...[click to read more]

I could do there what I wanted. I even stripped. I don't think nobody stripped in front of 150,000 people. I'm the only guy there...[click to read more]

I don't know. I was also not scared, but when I had my tattoo, what is my father going to say to me...[click to read more]

1994: He has a lovely way of expressing himself. When you ask him about a plan to speed up matches, he explains: "Good. I like to play fast...[click to read more]

1996 No, I was very cool. Surprised, I think, everybody there kept even when I serve there -- because I played not great tennis; I served good, but I did not play well...[click to read more]


And there still was the press conference before Ivanisevic could settle in with the soccer game. Told then that Croatia was leading, 1-0, Ivanisevic did his best Beavis imitation, saying, "Good . . . hey, hey, hey...[click to read more]

The great tragedy of Goran Ivanisevic's life is that he was never painted by Toulouse-Lautrec. His appearance, now more louche than ever, is of a forgotten symbolist poet shortly before last orders at Le Tambourin cafe in Paris in the late 1880s, with his seventeenth glass of absinthe beside him and Vincent already passed out at his feet...[click to read more]

'Yeah, somebody that is a little shorter, so when he hits me in the head it will be more in the chest,' Ivanisevic said, smiling despite the blood still dripping down his face during a news conference...[click to read more]

Goran Ivanisevic battled back to beat Germany's Nicolas Kiefer in the Milan indoor tournament on Wednesday...[click to read more]

Yeah. I had to be careful because there were a lot of ballboys there, to aim it. I wanted to throw it harder. I say, "Man, be careful because a lot of traffic there. If you hit somebody, you going to be escorted out of the court and pay big fine."...[click to read more]

Goran Ivanisevic a three-time Wimbledon finalist, might have another run in him as he shoots for his first title...[click to read more]

Goran Ivanisevic's timing may be a little off kilter these days as the three-time Wimbledon finalist sinks lower in the world rankings, but the Croatian's comic timing is as sharp as ever...[click to read more]

The biblical tresses were cut off long ago but yesterday, as Goran Ivanisevic returned to Croatia, he looked every inch a messiah...[click to read more]
