"La Bottega di Smrikve" pupil Tara visiting Rome and playing Lemon Bowl :D

This week Tara, “La Bottega di Smrikve” pupil, had the opportunity to visit Rome and gain another valuable experience playing Lemon Bowl… a tournament established back in 1985… there were over 180 girls who competed in her under 12 age group… and in total over 1200 players played the event starting with pre qualification draws on 10th of December…

Many Lemon Bowl top players played Smrikva Bowl over the years and it was a pleasure to meet several players there competing in older age groups…

…after playing in Slovenia couple of times Tara had the opportunity to visit another country and see Rome thanks to her racket passport & day after day passion dedicate to her her tennis talent development :)…

I am pleased to share few pictures from this nice memory trip…

Here is the moment of departure… the dream team :)… Taki, Chin and Mimi :D… ready to go!

… New Penta 2000 Club host the event… and has many clay courts and several indoor artificial grass courts… and Tara had the opportunity to play on both…

…here is a moment before her first match… concentrating… relaxing… and recalling the Momentum… the invisible force… the wind :)…

Our family Shifu is sharing few easy thoughts from the far far away East before the talent can free on the court… relax and flow… ;)…

The tennis court where Taki played witn Valentina Gruarin… surrounded by “big broccoli” trees as Shifu likes to call them… :D…

… point after point…

… with beautiful winter sun over Rome… Taki reached the victory and entered among TOP 16 players out of over 180 in her age group…

… the match was scheduled for the early afternoon… and after streching we grab the opportunity to celebrate the day and go to see a bit of Rome… “la citta’ eterna”… :D

… beautiful “Oltare della Patria”… with “horses” as Shifu likes to call them :D…. and then more and more curiosities to see… it was so difficult to leave and park somewhere our car :))…

… and more and more to see… and get surprised… “Grande Roma”… “come sei bella”… Antonello Venditi would say… and we agree ;)…

… and there is so much to see driving with the car around… this is what Shifu call… an alien spaceship :)… beautiful and amazing exhibition place… we later learned it was “La Nuvola”… so impressive and nice…

… the second day… had a bit of rain and wind… and the schedule was uncertain… but we grab some time to drive till the sea… Ostia… very windy day…

… and the bad weather made the change of the schedule and the impossibility to play on clay outdoor so Taki played for the first time on syntetic grass indoor… with a very talented girl from Genova Vittoria Gibello…

… the initial lead Taki created was not sufficient to win the match that day… there were several balls very closed to the lines but with no possibility to check the marks the momentum changed… overall it was another great experience playing with very competitive Vittoria…

… happy with the experience… there were still many things to see… especially Fontana di Trevi was a must :)… Tara liked a lot how Toto’ sold it in the movie and she wish to see it ;)… and here we are nearby Quiriniale… the place were Italian President lives… the place you can see almost every day in Italian daily TV news…

… and behind us there is “Cupolone” as Venditti sing in one of his songs… Vatican… San Pietro…

and here is the beauty… :D

Fontana di Trevi… made by a guy from Switzerland as Toto’ said during his sale deal… Bernini from Berna :))))

…finally here :)

… our trio together :D

… and the next must see point was Piazza di Spagna… the famous spanish stairs… via Condotti…

… the place to enjoy…

just sit and relax…

… and on the way home… we found this beauty… the most beautiful ice cream shop with fantastic “gelato”…

… and for the end one of the breathtaking views which followed us on many parts of this trip…

Bella Roma…

It was a great pleasure to see some of the Smrikva Bowl players around the venue… Lorenzo Sciahbasi (1st round U12 Lemon Bowl 2017) with his family… Federico Bondioli (runner up U12 Lemon Bowl 2017) with the family… Emma Valletta (quarterfinals U14 Lemon Bowl 2017) with her father…

…and some other players Abedallah Shelbayh (winner U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Andrea Meduri (semifinals U12 Lemon Bowl 2017) , Erika Di Muzio (1st round U14 Lemon Bowl 2017)…

…there were other players I recognized in the draws but did not have pleasure to see: Giacomo Nosei (winner U12 Lemon Bowl 2017), Veronica Sirci (2nd round U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Emma Rizzetto (1st round U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Enrico Baldisserri (quarterfinals U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Nicolo’ Tresoldi (1st round U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Filippo Moroni (1st round U14 Lemon Bowl 2017), Giorgio Gatto (2nd round U12 Lemon Bowl 2017) and Emma Ghirradato (1st round U12 Lemon Bowl 2017)…

Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2017

Dear Smrikve friends,

It is greetings time… time to stay with loved ones… time to recall moments of the gone year… and time to think about new destinations and dreams to full fill that may bring joy and energy to each of us and our loved ones…

… for years I kept believing that Smrikva Bowl kids and families will write by example stories that will inspire generations to come… and is easy to foresee that our seeds will collect the most prestigious trophies in tennis… and more than one will write the name on the stars reserved to the Legends, but not only…

21st Smrikva Bowl edition is behind us… and 1700 Smrikva Bowl seeds are spread in 78 countries…

They conquered a total of 23 junior GRAND SLAM titles… 14 professional ATP/WTA titles… 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… and in prestige under 12, 14, 18 tournaments around the World there is always someone who reach the end of the Draws…

To have a dream is nice… but to have people who dream with you is even more nice… and for them we are always special simply by the way we are…

Thanks to all those who keep visiting Smrikve… bringing news… inviting friends to visit us… and my heart is smirking knowing that there are more and more players and families which in their dreams keep a little piece of Smrikve ;)….

We do our best to keep improving in different directions… and among others we upgraded some of our accommodation units this year again, but not only…

Long time ago we started to prepare 3rd Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2017… scheduled for 22nd – 29th of April… which is expected to be again a great development week guided by Luca Appino, credited for signing contracts with Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (all of them scouted when they were far away from becoming #1)…

Preparations for the 22nd Smrikva Bowl 2017 edition started the day after the 21st annual finals and is expected to be another great annual… as of November there were already talents who presented their candidacy representing almost all the continents (only Antarctica is missing)…another good year is envisaged ;)…

I hope several Smrikva seeds will play prestige and traditional international tournaments (ETA, ITF, ATP) in Istria in 2017… this will be an opportunity to smile together in Smrikve…

… and one last thing… this year our olive trees made a lot of fruit… I hope next year some of you may think of joining us during collection days… to me collecting olives is a magic and relaxing moment… there are olive trees planted since 2005 by our little Ambassadors with over thousands names… and this year if each kid was with us to help there would be couple of kg for each to collect ;)…

Best wishes to you and your families,

Mio

Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Prosinac je vrijeme čestitanja… vrijeme želja… vrijeme koje rado provodimo uz svoje najbliže… i vrijeme je za prisjetiti se godine koja prolazi… a i trenutak za razmisliti o novim željama i putevima kojima krenuti koji mogu donijeti radosti i energije svakome od nas i onima koji su nam blizu…

… dugi niz godina vjerujem da djeca Smrikve, uz svoje obitelji, imaju prilike zapisati priče koje će primjerom nadahnuti generacije koje dolaze… i sve je lakše razaznati da će prikupiti najznačajnije trofeje u svijetu tenisa… i više njih upisati svoje ime na zvjezdama rezerviranim za Legende, ali i više od toga…

21. Smrikva Bowl je iza nas… i sjeme Smrikve broji 1700 talenata raširenih u 78 zemalja…

Već danas posjeduju impresivan životopis… 23 juniorske GRAND SLAM titule… 14 profesionalnih ATP/WTA titula… 2 igrača je dostiglo TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… i zadnjih godina svaki najprestižniji turnir u svijetu do 12, 14 ili 18 godina uvijek ima poneko dijete Smrikve u završnici ždrijeba…

Sanjati je lijepo… ali imati ljude koji sanjaju uz tebe je još ljepše jer za najbliže koji uz nas sanjaju smo često posebni jednostavno onakvi kakvi jesmo…

Hvala svima koji nas posjećuju… donose vijesti… dovode svoje prijatelje… i srce mi se smješi znajući da ima puno djece koja u svojim snovima nose jedan mali dio Smrikve ;)…

Trudimo se biti vrijedni u svakom pogledu kao i naši mališani… tako smo i ove godine u Smrikvama napravili poneko poboljšanje u više smještajnih jedinica, ali ne samo to…

Duže vrijeme se radi na pripremi Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2017 koji će se održati od 22.-29. travnja… jedno razvojno iskustvo uz prijatelja Luku Appina, kojem se pripisuje otrivanje igrača poput Rafaela Nadala, Andy Roddicka, Kim Clijsters, Dinare Safina, Caroline Wozniacki dok su bili daleko od broja 1 na svijetu…

Isto tako 22. Smrikva Bowl-u 2017. je u punom jeku pripremanja… već na početku studenog su skoro svi kontinenti kandidaturama talenata bili predstavljeni (fali samo predstavnik Antarktika)… tako da se očekuje još jedna dobra godina…

Nadam se da će više djece Smrikve zaigrati poneki od prestižnih i tradicionalnih turnira (ETA, ITF, ATP) u Istri tijekom 2017.te pa da se možda i vidimo u Smrikvama…

… i za kraj… da ne zaboravim :)… ove godine su masline posebno dobro rodile… i želja mi je pozvati vas na berbu sljedeće godine… berba je uvijek poseban trenutak… trenutak mira i inspiracije… više je posebnih maslina koje rastu u Smrikvama od 2005.godine koje nose preko 1000 imena djece Smrikve… i da su ove godine svi došli nam pomoći bilo bi za svakoga par kila malsina za ubrati ;)…

Sve najljepše i vama i obiteljima!

Mio

p.s. hvala za svaki Like i Share Facebook zajednice Smrikvi!

Cari amici di Smrikve,

E’ il tempo degli auguri… il tempo per stare insieme con i propri cari… il momento per ricordarsi dell’anno… ed il momento per pensare alle nuove mete di viaggio che possano portarci gioia ed energia…

… da anni credo che i ragazzi dello Smrikva Bowl scriveranno storie che ispireranno con l’esempio le nuove generazioni… ed e’ sempre piu’ facile scorgere che collezioneranno prestigiosi trofei nel tennis… e piu’ di uno scriverra’ il proprio nome sulle stelle riservate alle Legende, ma non solo…

21.esima edizione e’ dietro di noi… e 1700 semi dello Smrikva sono sparsi in 78 paesi…

Questi ragazzi hanno collezionato un totale di 23 titoli juniores negli GRANDE SLAM… 16 titoli professionali ATP/WTA… 2 sono entrati in TOP 10 ATP/WTA… ed in tornei prestigiosi under 12,14,18 nel Mondo c’e sempre qualcuno che arriva alla fine del tabellone…

Avere un sogno e’ bello… ed avere la gente che sogna insieme a noi e’ ancora piu’ bello perche’ per loro siamo noi stessi speciali semplicemente cosi’ come siamo…

Grazie a tutti che ci visitano… portano notizie… e continuano a portare nuovi amici… mi ride il cuore sapendo che ci sono sempre di piu’ coloro che portano dentro i loro sogni un piccolo pezzetino di Smrikve ;)…

Cerchiamo di migliorare ed abbiamo apportato migliorie anche quest’anno in diverse unita’ abitative e non solo…

Si lavora da tempo per il 3. Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2017 che si terra’ tra il 22. ed il 29. Aprile 2017… sarra’ una settimana di studio-crescita guidata dall’amico Luca Appino, al quale va il credito d’aver firmato giocatori come Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (scoperti quando erano molto lontani dal diventare #1 nel mondo)

22.esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl 2017 e’ in fase di preparazione dal giorno dopo la finale della 21.esima edizione… e dall’inizio novembre abbiamo quasi tutti i continenti gia’ rappresentati (manca solo l’Antarctica)… si attende un’altra grande annata di talenti…

Spero diversi sceglieranno di giocare tornei internazionali (ETA, ITF, ATP) di prestigio del 2017 in Istria per rivedersi a Smrikve…

…e l’ultima cosa… dimenticavo… quest’anno gli ulivi hanno fruttato cosi’ tanto che l’anno prossimo vi invito alla raccolta :D… per me la raccolta e’ sempre un momento magico e di relax… ci sono diversi ulivi speciali piantati dal 2005 ad oggi che portano oltre mille nomi dei nostri Ambasciatori… e quest’anno se venivano tutti i ragazzi ad aiutarci nella raccolta ci sarebbe stato per ciascuno un paio di chili di ulive da raccogliere ;)…

Un caro augurio a voi e le vostre famiglie,

Mio
