Now that the year is almost finished, some sooner than others, I thought we could share our best Croatian sporting moments of the year..

I will post more later but the biggest and best for me was the handball team winning gold at the Olympics. Just a great team who played with heart the whole time..

Happy New year to everybody and stay safe.

Our success in the Olympics
Ancic's great run in Wimbledon was great, he made it to the semi finals only losing to Roddick.
All the fun we had with Otto Baric during qualifiers and Euro 2004 :D

The problem is he proceeded to go missing after that apart from the Olypmics doubles with Ljubicic.

Not convinced with Ancic yet.

Mario got injured, and only won 4 matches i believe after his amazing run at Wimbledon.

Also, Mario just injured himself again, twisting his ankle in training for the ATP tournament to be held in Adelaide. I was looking forward to seeing him play, but he has to go and do this!!!

Hopefully he will be fine for the Australian Open.


My pick at the Open for the Croats is Ljubicic, i think he will do the best out of the lot. Mario always does pretty well at the Open, but Ljubicic is superior on hard courts.

Mario Ancic look like Goran Ivanisevic, also they have a vary similar style of play,both are very long with a powerful serve. Ancic should have beat Roddick but would have lose against the amazing Roger in the final anyway.. I'm sure that Ancic will win Wimbeldon in 5 years time.

PS! all the croatian players have a very similar style of play,Ljubicic,Ancic,Ivanisevic and Ivo Karlovic.

yeah all of them have big serves.
Karolina Sprem somewhat disapointed me, she had a great Wimbledone (beat one of the Williams sisters) but after that she wasn't heard of again.

read my post again

"we were or are near the top.."

proofreading man, this way you look like a donkey :)

Besides, we were at the top of the world in Basketball, waterpolo, football...we hardly play volleyball in Croatia.


We've also had tenis champions, mens and womens, Mavrovic fought Lewis for 12 rounds for the heavyweight championship of the world, Cro -cop, the olympic medals etc. etc.

It's good to be cro :)

maklion,

Surely you know the difference between Bosna and Hercegovina..but you've demonstrated that you

a) comment on posts when you haven't even read them
b) can't differentiate between Bosnia and Hercegovina (the "and" kind of gives it away)

so who's the donkey son ;)
