On Ambassador's Day, 21st of September 2018, the selection for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 generation started... and as of today we have crossed by far the maximum of the talented players we can confirm and the 2019 candidacy process is going to close...

Since 2010 the selection process for the Smrikva Bowl candidates starts on 21st of September… Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day…

I am pleased to share just few words written back in time why that date… that may be of interest for the new Smrikva generation… :)

Smrikve, September 2010

The International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day, occurs annually on September 21st and this day has been elected to be also the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors’ Day.

It is dedicated to peace, or specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many people. For the first time this holiday was celebrated in 1981.

The Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day, although celebrated on the same day as the World Peace Day, is dedicated to civilization, intergenerational responsibility and tennis. Without civil society in a modern world there is no guarantee for peace.

In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly declared, in a resolution sponsored by the United Kingdom and Costa Rica, the third Tuesday of September (the opening day of regular sessions of the General Assembly) as the International Day of Peace devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace and civilization values.

In 2001, the day was changed from the third Tuesday to specifically the twenty-first day of September. A new resolution was passed by the General Assembly, sponsored by the United Kingdom (giving credit to Peace One Day) and Costa Rica (the sponsors of the original day) to give the Day of Peace a fixed date and declare it as a global ceasefire day.

In 1991, on September 21st, I left Smrikve for Milan, it was the war time in my country, 5 years before, on the same day, in 1986, I sailed with a boat to Dubrovnik with school friends living a nice life time memory experience.

Having our calendar year 365 days if we live for some time and create our own experience we learn that the same day can remind us something nice and something not nice… it is a circle…

Not nice could be compared to a mistake in tennis… we learn from the mistakes. They help us understand what is not good or what we do not do properly…

To end this comment I am pleased to repeat words of a Nobel Prize for Peace who was guest speaker to one of Ambrosetti’s Young Leader Group meetings. It is a tradition that every guest dedicate few words to the Group and he wrote down the following:

“The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

Everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. The knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important. They are all parts of the civilization path.

Shimon Peres used in his note the statement: “Do it!” thus reminded me Yoda’s wisdom words when he shares his knowledge with young Jedi: “Try no. Do or do not “ :)

If people believe in the future there is future. If people do not believe in the future there is no future.

Only 4 days away from the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 generation candidacy process completion... and the story of the Old Olive Trees...

4 days away from the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 generation candidacy process completion… I am pleased to share part of the story related to the old Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Olive Trees…

This year will be planted the 15th olive tree… and 23 years old Smrikva living tree tennis track record, as of March 25th, 2019 includes the following:

- 30 junior GRAND SLAM titles conquered by 23 players
- 30 professional ATP/WTA titles
- 45 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking => 21 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking => 5 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA => 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking
- 150+ SB players received scholarships to study in the US & play tennis.

In 2005, for the 10th Smrikva Bowl anniversary, we started a tradition of planting an Olive tree. The tree that we planted for the 10th Smrikva Bowl is over 150 years old and happens to come from Spain.

During the ceremony, every Ambassador put a tiny piece of land close to the root of the Olive tree and say his or her name. Every year a new old Olive tree receive the Ambassadors’ names from many countries and continents. So far Smrikva Bowl olive oil have reached 87 countries and six continents…

The Olive tree is a symbol of peace. The age of the tree is a symbol of intergenerational responsibility. Every person is born without knowing anything about life on this earth and it is the responsibility of every generation to learn to preserve all that each of us is born with and allow future generations to enjoy the beauty of life, the sunsets and the seasons of the earth.

Very often while thinking about old olive trees in Smrikve I like to recall Mufasa teaching Simba the circle of life story… and below is part of a letter written a decade ago thinking about Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors and their Olive Trees…

Smrikve, March 2008

AMBASSADORSOLD OLIVE TREE AND THE CIRCLE OF LIFE

The Lion King cartoon is an artwork and most of the life messages one can find in it are in line with the Smrikva Bowl. They are in line with the message of the Ambassadors’ Olive Tree; they are in line with the values of friendship and love; they are in line with empathy. Love, friendship and empathy are all Cosmopolitan values per excellence, as far as people and humanity are concerned.

The relationship between Mufasa, Sarabi and Simba reminds me of both: parents and family love, but also about the intergenerational responsability.

Timon, Pumbaa and Simba relationship reminds me about love between friends. Pumbaa also make me think abuout empathy, intuition and loyalty. The relationship between Simba and Nola reminds me again about the importance of love. Rafiki, the wise old baboo, with his many centuries old tree reminds me about the importance of knowledge and experience of the older. There are many other particular moments that every person on its own, based on his or her own life experience, discover by watching these artworks.

You might be interested to know that most of the characters’ names in this cartoon have a particular meaning in Swahili language: Simba means “lion”; Nala means “gift”, and love is for me one of the greatest gifts that people can receive and give during their life; Sarabi means “mirage”; Pumbaa means “dull-witted” or “stunned”; and Rafiki means “friend” :). These names with their meanings make me think of the American Indians and the way they used to give the names to their people.

Every person is born without knowing anything about life on this earth and it is the responsibility of every generation to understand and to learn, to preserve all that each of us is born with. When Mufasa was explaining to Simba that is not easy to be the King… a good King should know that everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. The intergenerational responsibility alone will allow future generations to enjoy the beauty of life, the sunsets and the seasons of the earth. Enjoy the circle of life.

I am pleased to repeat words of a Nobal Prize for Peace who was guest speaker to one of Ambrosetti’s Young Leader Group meetings. It is a tradition that every guest dedicate few words to the Group and he wrote down the following

“The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

Everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. It is true that every generation face new challenges but there are many examples in the past how the old generations managed and solved particular problems and this is way knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important.

Only 10 days away from the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 generation candidacy process completion...

I am pleased to share the story of the Smrikva Bowl theater that for over two decades has been gathering the talents from all over the World…

We are less than two weeks away from closing the candidacy process for the 24th annual and another year full of talents is envisaged again… and I am pleased to share the following story with the new generation candidates…

Smrikve, January 2010

INSPIRINGSMRIKVA

… an inspiring tennis festival… When I think of Smrikva Bowl I try to imagine it as a theater where every year we work hard to set a stage where the world’s talents can gather… Every year we gather all these different actors, great talents, very special kids, arriving from different cultures, having different dreams,…

We set the stage and later on they are in charge with their will, dreams and hard work… they are the ones who write the most different stories…

Smrikva Bowl is still very young tournament but I would like to think that some of these kids will write nice and inspiring stories in most different professional fields.

I also know that according to the statistics only few of the kids participating Smrikva Bowl will make it to become top professional tennis players, but I like to think that they will make it in other professional fields they choose in their lives.

I was recently reading Andre Agassi’s book and through the whole book he was repeating to friends and people meeting during his life that he doesn’t like tennis thus it seems to me that he never had the option to choose, but in end he ended up being the Champion and according to Luke Jensen a person with big heart and very good friend.

I will never know how many kids playing Smrikva Bowl are playing it because their parents would like them to become professional tennis players and how much of them play it because they enjoy the game.

What I do know is that any kind of sport can help kids in their growth and I also know that people that do excel in any field require total dedication and a lot of sacrifice to reach the excellence.

When I think of Andre’s words of not loving what he was doing for most of the time of his life I start thinking of other 90% of people around the World that make for living doing jobs they do not like, but “La vita e’ bella” Roberto Benigni would say and tennis helped Andre to grow up.

There is one part in the book that I liked a lot… it is about inspiration, faith and what does it mean to be a good coach… to have the right word in the right moment… this part is related with Gil… and is about people that do believe in other people and help them to write their life stories and to write their own one…

Here are Gil’s words reported by Andre in his book when he accepted to coach him:

“I’m not one of those people who expresses or articulates feelings very well, but from now on, just know this: It’s on, man. It is on.

You know what I’m saying? We’are in a fight, and you can count on me until the last man is standing. Somewhere up there is a star with your name on it. I might not be able to help you find it, but I’ve got pretty strong shoulders, and you can stand on my shoulders while you’re looking for that star. You hear? For as long as you want. Stand on my shoulders and reach, man. Reach.”

In every life there are people that influence what we do and how we do it.

The Smrikva Bowl festival would like to inspire its players and Ambassadors to believe in their dreams and work hard to reach them.

Sport and music are in general good educators and the vision of sport preferred in Smrikve is the one Nelson Mandela once said:

“Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire and the power to unite people in a way little else can – it is an instrument of peace.”

Smrikva Bowl Mission like a Dream...

Not many years from now there will be much more Smrikva Bowl players among professional players… as of March 4th 2019: 45 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking… 19 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking… 5 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA… 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… and 75 players are this week holding a ATP/WTA ranking…

Their track record includes: 30 junior GRAND SLAM titles and 29 professional ATP/WTA titles…

There will be much more Smrikva Bowl players that thanks to their racket skills will got the scholarship to play in the prestige Universities all around the World… so far 150+ players got scholarship to study play tennis in the US…

… and there will be much more who will graduate all around the World…

Smrikva Bowl dream is that may they all stand together for something “MORE THAN TENNIS”…

“If you want 1 year of prosperity, grow grain.
If you want 10 years of prosperity, grow trees.
If you want 100 years of prosperity, grow people.”

Smrikva Bowl mission is to inspire, develop and spread cosmopolitan values. Love, friendship and empathy are cosmopolitan values per excellence for people and humanity…

CULTURE, CHILDREN, SPORT and MUSIC are part of the Smrikva Bowl idea of the cosmopolitan world. It is a matter of civilization

A wise wind, product of imagination, once whispered… “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.” (M.Y.)… and fairy tales seems to help that beauty…

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” (A.E.)…

Usually in tennis game it does not matter what goes wrong but your reaction to it…

Fear and anger are for the brain the same as cramps for the muscles… and as Yoda noted “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”… like in tennis, so similar seems to be life…


There are different ways to look at sport. There are different ways to look at music, culture, love and also to children.

The vision of sport preferred in Smrikve can be described and extended to: culture, music and children using the following Nelson Mandela – Madiba’s words:

“Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire and the power to unite people in a way little else can – it is an instrument of peace.”

Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2019

Dear Smrikve friends,

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

I always believed in Smrikva Bowl kids and their families and year after year is more and more visible how beautiful this tree of life is becoming…

23 Smrikva Bowl editions… 1930 Smrikva Bowl seeds spread in 87 countries… 29 junior GRAND SLAM titles… 26 professional ATP/WTA titles… 43 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking, 18 players TOP 100 ATP/WTA, 2 players TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… in the most prestige under 12, 14 tournaments there is always some Smrikva name in the finals of the Draw… over 140 players received full scholarship in the US Universities… and some Smrikva children started to build their own families in the circle of life…

It is true that to have a dream is beautiful… but is even more true that to have people, family, friends who dream with you and who share your dream bring more joy…

I would like to share today one of my old dreams that from time to time return into my mind. I started to think of it soon after the Smrikva Bowl story started… it is the Smrikve Central Court surrounded by olive trees…

Back in 2006 I made the wooden model you can see on the picture… and I would like to believe that in 2025 we might host the 30th Smrikva Bowl finals on the new central court…

A special thanks goes to all who keep visiting Smrikve and choose to return as our guests… bringing news… inviting friends to visit us… and each of your visit continues to keep alive the dream…

In Smrikve we do our best to keep improving in different directions… each of your visit is in a certain way the source of inspiration… and the inspiration was always that invisible key allowing us to give our best in building and creating another good year for Smrikve…

Long time ago the preparations for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition started as well as the SBTT Family Weeks 2019 preparations. 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition can already be envisaged as another good year of talents…

SBTTFWs are scheduled for 3 weeks in total in 2019: 13/4/-20/4/; 21/4 – 28/4/; 14/9-21/9… and will be very special learning experiences again. The 5th edition will be guided by my friend Luca Appino, credited for scouting Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (all of them scouted when they were far away from becoming #1)… both me and Luca keep looking at the tennis fronteers of tomorrow and next year weeks will be another long term development gift to our alumni.

2019 have good chances to be the year when Smrikva Bowl seeds will start to collect the first senior Grand Slam title of many to come… there are many who have the chance to open this new Smrikva Bowl chapter and this will be another moment to smirk… thinking of all precious Smrikva Bowl bottles of wine and olive oil spread around the globe…

Best wishes,

Mio



Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Prosinac je vrijeme čestitanja… vrijeme za svoje najmilije… a i vrijeme za prisjetiti se godine koja prolazi… isto tako je vrijeme za osmišljavanje novih destinacija kojima krenuti i koji mogu donijeti radosti i energije svakome od nas…

Oduvjek sam vjerovao u djecu Smrikve i svake godine se sve više i više nazire koliko predivno stablo života Smrikva postaje u svijetu…

23. Smrikva Bowl-a su iza nas… i njeno sjeme je zasijano u 87 zemalja…

Već danas djeca Smrikve posjeduju impresivan životopis… 29 juniorskih GRAND SLAM titula… 26 profesionalnih ATP/WTA titula… 43 igrača u TOP 200 ATP/WTA… 18 igrača u TOP 100 ATP/WTA… 2 igrača u TOP 10 ATP/WTA… već dugi niz godina najprestižniji turniri u svijetu do 12, 14 godina uvijek imaju ponekog sa Smrikve u završnici ždrijeba… preko 140 djece se izborilo za stipendije u SAD-u… a i polako su djeca Smrikve počela graditi svoje obitelji u krugu života…

Istina je da je divno sanjariti… ali je još više istina da imati ljude, obitelj, prijatelje koji dijele tvoje snove donosi jednu posebniju radost…

Želio bih podijeliti danas jedan od mojih dugogodišnjih snova koji se s vremena na vrijeme vraća u moj um. Počeo sam misliti o tome ubrzo nakon što je započela priča o Smrikva Bowl-u… radi se o centralnom terenu Smrikvi u parku maslina…

2006. godine napravio sam model koji se može vidjeti na slici … i želio bih vjerovati da ćemo možda 2025. godine ugostiti finale 30. Smrikva Bowl-a…

Posebno hvala svima koji nas posjećuju i odluče provesti svoj odmor kod nas… donose vijesti… prijatelje… i svaki taj posjet nastavlja održavati živim naš san…

Trudimo se biti vrijedni i napredovati u različitim smjerovima… svaki posjet je u neku ruku izvor inspiracije… a inspiracija je uvijek bila nevidljivi ključ za izgraditi još jednu dobru godinu Smrikvi…

Odavno su krenule pripreme za 24. Smrikva Bowl 2019… kao i pripreme za Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks (SBTTFW) 2019. 24. Smrikva Bowl 2019 se već nazire kao još jedna posebna godina talenata.

A i obiteljski tjedan SBTTFW koji će se održati u 3 termina: 13/4/-20/4/, 21/4/-28/4/ i 14/9-21/9… je posebno razvojno iskustvo za polaznike i obitelji u duhu Smrikve koje će voditi prijatelj Luca Appino… i 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)… i ja i Luca svake godine istražujemo teniske granice i sljedeća godina će ponovno biti posebna za polaznike.

Osjećam da bi 2019.ta mogla biti i godina prvog seniorskog Grand Slam od mnogih koji će doći… već je više igrača Smrikve koji imaju šansu otvoriti to novo poglavlje Smrikva Bowl-a i bio bi to divan trenutak za smješak ;)… razmišljajući o svim posebnim bocama vina i maslinovog ulja koje su raširene po svijetu…

Sve najljepše,

Mio


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 destinazioni da raggiungere che possano portarci gioia ed energia…

Ho sempre creduto nei ragazzi dello Smrikva e nelle loro famiglie… ed ogni anno e’ sempre piu’ visibile la bellezza di questo albero della vita che cresce con le radici sparse in quasi tutto il mondo…

23 edizione sono dietro di noi… e 1930 semi dello Smrikva sono presenti in 87 paesi…

I ragazzi ad oggi hanno collezionato un totale di 29 titoli juniores negli GRANDE SLAM… 26 titoli professionali ATP/WTA… 43 hanno varcato la soglia dei TOP 200 ATP/WTA… 18 dei TOP 100 ATP/WTA e 2 sono entrati in TOP 10 ATP/WTA… nei tornei prestigiosi under 12,14 nel Mondo c’e sempre qualcuno che arriva alla fine del tabellone… piu’ di 140 giocatori hanno ricevuto la borsa di studio negli Stati Uniti… ed alcuni ragazzi hanno gia’ iniziato a costruire le proprie famiglie nel cerchio della vita…

E’ vero che sognare e’ bello… ma e’ ancora piu’ gioso avere la famiglia e gli amici che sognano insieme a te e ti supportano…

Vorrei condividere oggi uno dei miei vecchi sogni che di tanto in tanto mi ritorna in mente. Ho iniziato a pensarci poco dopo aver iniziato la storia dello Smrikva Bowl… si tratta del campo centrale immerso tra gli ulivi… il campo in cui mi piacerebbe ospitare le finali di Smrikva…

Nel 2006 ho fatto un modellino in legno che potete vedere nella foto … e mi piacerebbe credere che nel 2025 potremmo ospitare la finale della trentesima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl sul nuovo campo centrale…

Grazie speciale a tutti che ci visitano e scelgono di essere nostri ospiti… continuano a portare nuovi amici… e devo dire che ogni vostra visita mantiene vivo il nostro sogno…

A Smrikve cerchiamo di migliorare sempre noi stessi e le vostre visite portano inspirazione… l’inspirazione e’ sempre stata quella chiave invisibile atorno alla quale costruire un altro buon anno Smrikva…

24.esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl 2019 e’ in fase di preparazione da diverso tempo come da tempo e’ in fase di preparazione Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks (SBTTFW) 2019… posso gia’ condividere che attendiamo un’altra grande annata di talenti…

SBTTFW si terranno nelle seguenti 3 settimane: 13/4/-20/4/, 21/4/-28/4/ e 14/9-21/9… e sarranno le settimane di studio-condivisione-crescita guidate 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)… sia io che Luca continuamo ad osservarie la frontiera del mondo tennistico di domani ed anche le settimane dell’anno che viene saranno un regalo speciale ai nostri alumni.

2019 potrebbe essere l’anno del primo Grand Slam seniores tra i molti che veranno… ci sono ormai diversi ragazzi che abbiano le possibilita’ di farlo e di aprire questo nuovo capitolo dello Smrikva e sarebbe un speciale momento per sorridere ;)… pensando anche a tutte quelle speciali bottiglie di vino ed olio Smrikva sparsi nel giro per il mondo…

Auguri,

Mio

Recently ISMCA - International Sport Mental Coach Association Certification class and the 20th International Tennis Symposium was held at Centro Pavesi in Milan (Italy)

From 8th of November till 11th of November there were several significant events taking place in Milan: Next Gen Finals event, ISMCA – International Sport Mental Coach Association Certification class and the 20th International Tennis Symposium promoted by Pro Camp MGM Italia, UISP and GPTCA.

It was for me the first time at Next Gen… last year two Smrikva Bowl players participated: Borna Coric and Gianluigi Quinzi

… and this year was the year of Alex De Minaur… and Lloyd Harris was invited in case a replacement was needed… to see Alex play was such an experience… and also to meet mom Esther and the family at the event made the visit to Next Gen special for me…

Alberto Castellani recently founded ISMCA – International Sport Mental Coach Association… years ago he founded also GPTCA and is one of the 50 ATP level coaches with important passion and experience in high level mental training… it was a pleasure to attend the certification class… getting several inspiring ideas to implement with Smrikva Bowl seeds of the Legends from the class…

Stefano Lopopolo presented the Self Talk tool…

… and Alberto Castellani continued with explaining how to work on individual mental development plan for a player…

sharing also various exercises and tools such as visualization… imagery…

… as we all know in tennis most of the time the players are not playing and Federico Di Carlo made a very nice session on managing breaks between points…

Manuela Caputi with support of the ex physical trainer of Novak Djokovic, Marco Panichi, presented a very nice and interesting session on Focusing and Bioenergetic Counseling…

… Alberto presented again several on court tools related with attention and concentration… focusing…

visualization… breathing…

… it was also a pleasure to see with Marco Panichi some physical exercises…

Salvatore Buzzelli made an over 30 years research on some elements that today proves him being right on energy cost of attention…

a lot of new ideas to work on I treasured from this experience…

After International Sport Mental Coach Association Certification class I also attended in Milan the 20th International Tennis Symposium… and as per tradition the Symposium gathered many interesting speakers and it was again an opportunity to learn something new…

Over the years I had pleasure to attend over 30 international coaching events… and hear over 140 coaches… and every time I had a pleasure to learn at least one new thing… and it was the case this time again …

This year the event was promoted by Pro CAMP MGMG Italia and sponsored again by UISP (Unione Italiana Sport per tutti) and GPTCA (Global Professional Tennis Coach Association)…

After the welcome word of the Symposium president Mr. Massimo Rossi

and two inspiring coaches Alberto Castellani and Erasmo Palma who’s organisations are supporting this event…

The speakers also included: Vincenzo SANTOPADRE, Lucio CAPRIOLI, Christian PERONE, Raffaele TATARANNI, Francesca DELLA MORA, Massimo RAPETTI, Luca ORTHMANN, Apostolos TSITSIPAS, Olivera ZAJELAC, Christian ZUGER, Gustavo SPECTOR,…

and the main theme was “THE NEXT-GEN TENNIS”…

Massimo RAPETTI spoke about the importance of balance diet for a sport player and this subject is more and more becoming core element of every player who would like to maximize its own potential… and being Rapetti employee of Enervit he presented a bit various integration possibilities before, during and after the competition…

… traditionally the Symposium presented cases of players path… and this time Vincenzo SANTOPADRE the coach of Matteo Berrettini presented their path… it was a very nice presented story… with focus on individual path… individual timing related with several family, personal elements…

Alberto CASTELLANI and Lucio CAPRIOLI presented Egograms application… the first possibility to give a numeric element to a mental element in a tennis match… it is a pioneer approach that may see a further evolution with Kitros software company… and for the moment is something that make you think about… to read the invisible force in the match via Parents, Adult, Child behavior scheme… and the impact that each behavior may have on players performance…

… the skeleton and muscles are in every players career a very sensitive element and injuries treatment are like food, technique, physical, mental preparation part of the sport… and Luca ORTHMANN from La Mamba company presented their last research achievements that may be of help to players that need the support of a particular articulation after a recovery or as per prevention use…

Christian PERONE is a physical trainer and made a very nice presentation of differences what and how to train and various development stages a talented junior player…

… technology support is more and more present in sport… and match analysis is becoming more and more an actual subject… as it was video analysis when the technology become available to everyone… and Raffaele TATARANNI and Francesca DELLA MORA presented their video indexing model which will for sure with technology evolution continue to evolve fast and the cost to use it will continue to decrease…

Erasmo PALMA has always very interesting presentations… how to make things easy, with pleasure and at the same time at high quality level… he does at every level from the first contact with tennis at very young age till high level professional…

… the second big case study – testimony of this year symposium came from Apostolos TSITSIPAS father of a rising tennis star Stefanos… and together with him was his current nutrition advisor Olivera ZAJELAC

Apostolos answered for couple of hours to questions of the audience sharing a very inspiring story his family with his son is going through…

… and in the afternoon he shared a typical training session when they are on the tour…

Christian ZUGER is the founder of Kitris, a company which provides match and video analysis software, and this was almost the last presentation of the symposium… great technology at good price which may boost and spread this new tool…

and the symposium was concluded with a very nice presentation on Padel… a great game rising in several parts of the world and a kind of little cousin of the tennis game…

It was another Symposium “good year”… :)

We collected olives and made olive oil that will end up in bottles for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 Ambassadors - Istrian olive oil - one of the best in the World and Smrikva "seeds of the Legends" are making it more and more special year after year...

It was another very long day in Smrikve… the second olives collection day for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition-generation…

… with over 20 friends we had another beautiful olive oil collection day…

It is the story of the 2019 Smrikva Bowl olive oil production :)…

In Smrikve is considered 2019 production because the next year every new Smrikva Bowl Ambassador will receive as per tradition a memory bottle of it during the Ambassador’s nomination ceremony.

Collecting olives is always wonderful family and friends time :)… so lucky to collect olives with this kind of weather…

… and the day was again too short to collect all… we had a great team…

Our olive trees hold names of over 1440 players coming from 87 countries and all the continents…

In Smrikve we produce Istrian olive oil that has over 2000 years old tradition in olive oil making and was considered among the best one in the Roman Empire and today is still considered among the best one in the World.

During the Smrikva Bowl we use to give to every Smrikva Bowl Ambasador a bottle of oil as a memory to their Smrikva Bowl.

We are already able to produce special and limited collections of the Smrikva Bowl olive oil from the Smrikva Bowl centuries old olive trees planted by some of the future tennis Champions…

The long road full of sweat and tears… and in end smile :)

… so far 5 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA… 18 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA… 43 players are among TOP 200 ATP/WTA… we are close to 90 players among TOP 1000 ATP/WTA… 22 children holds a total of 29 junior Grand Slam titles and almost 130 players study in the US thanks to their tennis skills.

The tradition of the olive oil production started to develop in Istria during the time of the Emperor Augustus. Thanks to the olive oil Pula was for few centuries one of the richest towns in the Roman Empire and this is one of the main reasons why Pula got its magnificent Arena.

It is important to say that at the time olive oil was not used only as the salad dressing as we use it today but it was used also for lighting thus it was important as todays are important the sources of energy we use. It was the gold of its period. This explain the status and importance Pula had during the Roman Empire time.

Romans had deep knowledge of olive oil making and we do know that they had five different olive oils quality ranking:

1. Oleum ex albis ulivis: first quality olive oil made by green and white olives
(THIS IS WHAT WE DO FROM THE SMRIKVA BOWL OLIVES)
2. Viride: olive oil made by the olives that started to become black
3. Maturum: olive oil made by mature olives
4. Caducum: olive oil made by olives collected from the ground
5. Cibarium: olive oil made by rotten olives

In 2005, for the 10th Smrikva Bowl anniversary, we started the tradition of planting an old Olive tree. The Olive tree selected was older than the oldest man living on the earth today.

On Brioni island there is an olive tree from the beginning of the 4th century that is one of the oldest olive trees in Europe… and many Smrikva Bowl kids visit it every year…

Marcus Valerius Martialis, native from Cordoba, who lived in the 1st century AD, during the Roman Empire times, celebrated Istrian olive oil with the following verses: “Uncto Corduba Laetior Venafro Histra Nec Minus Absolute Testa”. The translation in English would be: “Cordoba, you being more fertile than the olive oil region of Venafro and so perfect as the oil (amphora) from Istria”.

21st of September - Smrikva Bowl Ambassador Day - 24th annual Smrikva Bowl 2019 "seeds of the Legends" research begins

Dear Smrikva Bowl and Smrikve friends!

I was 23 when started the Smrikva story back in 1996… and today is 21st of September 2018, Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s Day (“SBA” Day) and time to open the 24th annual candidacy process…

23 editions are behind us… with over 1930 former players spread in 87 countries writing the “seeds of the Legends”story… and already making important impacts in their communities…

World map

… over 1030 signed books are kept in the Smrikva Bowl Heritage Library coming from 71 country…

… over 1440 names are carried with pride by 13 old Smrikva Bowl olive trees… creating something special and still difficult to understand foresee what will become one day…

… 29 junior GRAND SLAM titles are conquered so far by 22 former Smrikva Bowl players…

… 24 professional ATP/WTA titles…

… 43 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA…

… 16 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA… and there are always Smrikva Bowl names among the winners of the most prestige under 12, 14, 16, 18 tournaments around the World…

There are many seeds who already graduated from Universities and I had a wish to find out how many Smrikva Bowl children had the opportunity to get scholarship in the United States thanks to their academic and tennis skills and the number I am pleased to share is that over 120 children out of 900 children who played Smrikva Bowl between 1996 and 2009 were able to do it…

… I listed a lot of numbers above but Smrikva Bowl story is more than numbers… more than tennis… and I am grateful to the Smrikva Bowl seeds who in most different ways year after year inspire us to go beyond our imagination…

There are many ways to show intergenerational solidarity… and I would like to thanks all the children and families who still remember Smrikva and answered my call to send us signed gifts so we could give them to each participant of this year Smrikva Bowl… this special moment is an opportunity to share the past players stories with children who are dreaming to follow their footprints … we have received over 110 signed items… and every present child at that moment of intergenerational celebration ceremony has brought home a memory gift and I hope they also discovered a new friend for whom to cheer…

It is time to start “seeds of the Legend” research for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition… and I have to thanks many Smrikva Ambassadors for doing their best to continue Smrikva Bowl mission…

I am also pleased to share that the 5th Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2019 edition with Luca Appino and me will be held for the first time for 3 weeks due to very high number of participation requests. The weeks will be the following:13th-20th and 22nd – 29th of April 2019 and from 14th-21st of September 2019…

21st of September is the International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day… and years ago this date was selected to be the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day (“SBA”)…

The SBA Day is celebrated on the same day as World Peace Day… to me civil society and peace are pillars for any talent development possibility…

Some years ago for all the Smrikva Bowl candidates was introduced the obligation to observe the Smrikva Bowl Fair Play and Sportsmanship Code of Conduct and I am pleased to share one hint with the seeds… more you train more become natural to lead by example… always and only after many mistakes we have the chance to become better if we wish to learn from them…

Many years ago we started to plant an old Olive tree during Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Nomination Ceremony. The Olive tree selected was older than the oldest man living on the earth… and during the ceremony, every Ambassador put a piece of land close to the root and donate the name to the tree…

Olive tree is a nice symbol in various cultures… and his age is a symbol of responsibility between generations.

Cartoons always helped me to share thoughts with kids… and The Lion King is nice one to share again our Olive Tree story… the Circle of Life story…

We are all born without knowing much about life on this earth…

When Mufasa was explaining to Simba that is not easy to be the King… he told him that a good King should know that everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and that with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it.

A Nobal Prize for Peace, guest of the group I was member years ago, once observed: “The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

I developed an idea that peace is always an instable equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. Knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important… and all together are pillars for the civilization path.

When the Nobel Prize told us: “Do it!” he reminds me a bit Yoda and his teaching to the young Skywalker: “Do. Or do not!…”

Books are a human memory that can help us understand what we see combined with our cumulated personal experience and this is among reasons why I started the Smrikva Bowl Heritage Library story. Given the fragility of the circle of life it is easy to lose personal and general cumulated knowledge in just a generation or two.

We have gotten used to rapid technological progress, but social progress is more complex. Humans learn throughout lifetime and mostly from our personal experiences. We are those who represent the current civilization.

Today people live an average of about 80 years… and what we call civilization is mostly made up of the human knowledge we have accumulated, which our institutions pass onto future generations…

World Peace Day although celebrated on the same day as SBA day is definitely a good day to start the new research of the Smrikva talents… and with this e-mail, as per tradition, the selection process for the 24th annual will be open.

24th Smrikva Bowl will be held in Pula-Istria, Croatia, from (22nd) 24th till 29th of June 2019. Smrikva Bowl gathers young tennis talents from all over the World and next year edition will be dedicated to players born in 2009.

When I think of Smrikva Bowl Heritage and Legacy I always imagine it physically as a theater where we work hard for a year to set the stage… and every year we gather kids, arriving from different cultures, having different dreams…

We set the stage and later on they are in charge with their dedication to write the most different & inspiring stories…

Smrikva Bowl is still very young event but I always believed that more then one will write inspiring stories in most different professional fields.. and I was so happy to find so many names among those who achieved the possibility to get their high education at US Universities… and even more happy to recognize several names among prestige Ivy League Universities…

Year after year seems more likely that Grand Slam Tournaments will be conquered by Smrikva seeds… they already won 29 junior Grand Slam Titles in singles and doubles… and my dream for the “seeds of the Legends” goes beyond Grand Slam dream…

I know that according to the statistics only few Smrikva Bowl kids will become top professional tennis players, but I want to believe that they will find their way in other professional fields…

I do not know how many kids playing Smrikva Bowl are playing tennis because their parents would like them to become professional tennis players and how much of them play it because they like the game. What I do know is that sport can help kids in their growth and I also know that people that do excel in any field need very long time to reach and master the excellence.

Some people come to Smrikve thinking that Smrikva Bowl is a very “important” competition… without understanding that the result is not the hidden key of the Smrikva Bowl event… and I always need Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors’ help to explain to new candidates and their families that Smrikva Bowl is something more than a competition…

On our website you can already find PDF file 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition presentation with application form and other relevant information:

http://www.smrikve.com/smrikva-bowl/

Smrikva Bowl “more than tennis” idea… will remain to the interpretation of each Ambassador and Smrikva Bowl friend… of their feelings because they are the one who are helping to write the Smrikva story…

Smrikva Bowl Olive Oil and Wine are spread in 87 countries thanks to the Smrikva Bowl families… Our quantities are very limited… the same as limited is the number of players we can invite every year… but I do believe the same I believed always for the Smrikva Bowl players that one day the olive oil made from the “seeds of the Legends” trees will be one of the most prestige in the World…

At the beginning of October we are going to collect the Smrikva Bowl olives and in case you would like to make a short vacation in Smrikve and live with your family this special moment please let me know…

This year Croatia and Istria registered again the record numbers of travelers and I am grateful to all those who visited us and contributed to the growth… “Istria from Smrikve” is a cultural e-book gift to all Smrikve friends… Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors are helping us in scouting talents but also in spreading the word about Istria as cultural tourism destination worth visiting… and my dream is that “Istria from Smrikve” Legacy may be recognized one day thanks to the Smrikva seeds…

The number of the invited players in 2019 will be again 96 players (48 girls and 48 boys) and your help will be precious.

If you know a good tennis player born in 2009 that deserves to play Smrikva Bowl or you wish to present your candidacy for the 5th SBTTFW 2019 please let me know…

… for the end of this long presentation… being today World Peace Day… my wish to Smrikva players is to continue to inspire… and may some of them make true Nelson Mandela’s words when he observed the power of Sport saying: “Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire and the power to unite people in a way little else can…”

Thank you for your time, for visiting us and for sharing with friends to visit Smrikve if you enjoyed your time spent at our place.

Today we collected grapes and started the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 - Smrikve Malvazija wine production

We just collected grapes and started 2019 Smrikve wine production… the wine collection of limited 130 bottles will be made as per tradition… and around 100 bottles will be donated to the families participating the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition…

As per tradition we will do our best to make good wine…

Smrikve Malvazija is thanks to the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors spread in 87 countries and all the continents. Last year we created a limited collection of 130 bottles and never above 200 bottles… it is always a gift of our family to the Smrikva Bowl families and to our friends.

Wine and gastronomy are part of a culture and wine bottle that we give to every Smrikva Bowl family is part of our cultural gift that every year we are pleased to make to our guests coming from all around the World.

The wine making is the tradition in Smrikve since 1957…

The wine production is a passion for many Istrian families and my grandfather Mate was a great lower of wine and wine making. The first thing he made in 1957 when he settled in Smrikve was planting the vineyard.

Probably not many Smrikva Bowl readers do know the story how my grandfather agreed to take out a row of vineyard to create the space for the court where today the Smrikva Bowl finals are played.

My father, me and my Uncle continue the wine making tradition in Smrikve…

Several years ago I bought a vineyard close to the vineyard planted by my grandfather and today my father and me are doing our best to get the best from what Malvasia grapes can give.

The first phase of the processing the grapes started yesterday…

We collected the grapes but also separated the juice of the rest to obtain the golden color that usually our Istrian Malvazija (Malmsey) wine has. Now for two days the fermentation will be blocked to allow the wine to start its transformation process cleaner than it is today after the collection.

In Smrikve we produce Istrian Malvazija (Malmsey) and during the Smrikva Bowl we use to give a bottle of wine to every family as a memory to their Smrikva Bowl. Probably one day this bottles might be something special if our kids continue to love tennis game and continue to write the Smrikva Bowl story with their results.

Wine as part of the culture…

In the regions where the wine is produced the wine was always part of the culture of the particular site. Also the wine we produce is part of the Smrikve tradition and this is the reason why we are pleased to give a bottle to every family that come to visit us for the Smrikva Bowl.

There is an old Istrian saying: ”Vino od loze i mliko od koze” and “Kruh je za tilo a vino je za dušu”. The translation from Croatian is difficult because you loose the feel of the language. Goat is the symbol of Istria and the meaning of the first saying would be: ”Wine from the grapevine and milk from the goat” and the meaning of the second would be: “Bread is for the body, wine is for the soul”.

With yesterday collection as I said we started the process of transforming the grapes into wine for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 edition of Malvazija.

The main Istrian wines are: Malvazija, Terran, Refosc and Muscatel.

The glory of the Istrian wine dates back to over 2000 years ago…

For those who are not familiar with Istrian wine I am pleased to remined the reader that Istrian wine was considered one of the best in the Roman Empire, around 20 centuries ago, and was preferred by Livia Drusilla, also known as Iulia Augusta, the wife of the first Roman Emperor Augustus.

Livia Drusilla’s preferred wine was the Istrian wine Pucinum. Livia is considered one of the most influent women in the beginning of the Roman Empire era. It is not know what wine it was because todays wines were brought in Istria mostly by Venetians.

Todays Istrian Malvazija’s story is related with Serenissima… the Venetian Republic

The story of Istrian Malvazija, cultivated in Istria since the end of the 16th century, is fascinating and it relates to the Venetians.

At the beginning of the 15th century the Venetians occupied Peloponnesus in Greece. In the Peloponnesus region there is a town Monemvassia, also named Malvasia. From this town the Venetians started to import the wine into Venice and the other areas controlled by the Venetian Republic.

This wine was so successful and became so famous all over Europe that Venetians decided to plant huge vineyards on the biggest Greek island, Crete.

Between the 16th and 18th century Malvasia become the most important wine in Europe. In 1570 the Turks conquered Crete and Venetians decided to plant Malvasia vineyards in other areas that had friendly relations with Venice which, at that time, also included Istria.

In end Malvasia is in Istria since the above mentioned period while it is not known the sort of the wine that was preferred by the wife of the Emperor Augustus, Livia Drusilla – Julia Augusta.

Giacomo Casanova in his diary talks about another Istrian sort and another great wine…

Giacomo Casanova visited Vrsar several times and in his diary he describes a good wine Refosc and nice women… That Refosc could be Terran too because if you look at the grapes you will hardly note the difference and today Refosc is mostly cultivated in the Slovenian part of Istria while in other areas the dominant sort is Malvasia.

Another excellent wine can be found around Momjan area made of Muscatel sort.
