Unfortunately, even the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 will not take place due to pandemic

Before pandemic we usually gathered always 100+ candidates representing on average over 40 countries and six continents… for this year we reduced the draws in order to increase our possibilities of gathering to maximum 64 players… and there were so many super brave candidates representing 35+ countries and 5 continents who passed the selection process…

During Smrikva Bowl we are always all together… parents, kids, coaches and our 50 staff members… and in our last Government pandemic instructions in public gathering is allowed the presence of maximum 25 people at the moment… and our reduced event this year would have gathered 300 people in total…

Below, I am sharing the confirmation letter written to the players who passed the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 selection process…

Dear 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 generation,

I am pleased to confirm you that your child successfully completed the Smrikva Bowl selection process and would have been invited to play the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 edition…

At the same time I am sorry to inform you that, after careful considerations of the pandemic evolution, we decided that there will be no minimum safety conditions this summer which are required to celebrate the 2011 born Smrikva Bowl generation…

It is the second very difficult acceptance letter to write in a row in our 25 years history… the pandemic World War is still on going and unfortunately it will not end before summer as I hoped…

Since its foundation Smrikva Bowl was envisaged as children birthday party that last for days… and the current situation does not allow us to gather in larger groups and celebrate…

I had hope after vaccine was discovered that this first World War of the 21st century will end this spring and that before summer we had good chances to return to normal life in Europe… but the slowness of the vaccination process makes scientists agree that we still need to be patient and that this war will be over but not as soon as we all wish…

Small number of people in the world have immunity and public authorities in most parts of the world continue to ban public gatherings…

I am sorry that also 2011, as well as 2010 Smrikva Bowl generation, will not have Smrikva Bowl memories but will remember Smrikva Bowl for the „war“ kind of situation that humanity lived since the end of 2019…

It was my honor to learn about your children… and I wish to share with you that the talent level of the candidates that passed this year Smrikva Bowl selection process is very high… and is in line with the best past Smrikva Bowl generations…

I was impressed by the passion your children and your family put into developing their talents despite pandemic… and after this crisis is over I am sure your children will shine on the world stage… and I will be pleased to follow them…

The only connection that we have so far are few emails exchanged over the past months with those who started their candidacy process in January… and we have in common friends that connected us, our Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors who supported your children candidacies… with some children I am pleased to know their coaches… and with very few families we know each other personally being some of you brothers and sisters of the past Smrikva Bowl players…

I wish to share in the following what I do share with children during their orientation and final registration… how the Smrikva Bowl week looks like… being each of you able to visualize your dreams… I learned that reading your dream letters… and proving in your candidacy materials to be Smrikva Bowl children… I wish to share what we will miss to live together…

I will not be able to talk to your children and meet them in person on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of June when we usually have the final registration and orientation Smrikva Bowl moment…

When I have the opportunity to see your books that you planned to donate to the Smrikva Bowl library and to exchange few words and smiles with each of you… explain to you the Smrikva Bowl week you’ve been looking for to live for so long thanks to your friends or brothers and sisters, coaches who introduced to you the Smrikva Bowl story… and I will not be able to ask you to circle in the final registration form what would you like to play for… and to encourage you to nurture your dreams in person…

That is the moment when I have the opportunity to give you some initial Smrikva Bowl gifts… and each gift has its own symbolic story that may help you and may have importance in building your development path… and I will miss the smile in your eyes when I show you each item that become traditionally our first gift to you…

I will not be in position to present each of the Smrikva Bowl 2011 born seeds on Monday morning, 21st of June, at 8:30 AM during the opening ceremony… when I usually ask you to bring your passports, and passports for the Smrikva Bowl are your tennis rackets, … during that moment I like to share in just few words dreams of each of you with all the generation and recall the Ambassadors who supported your candidacies…

Using the music that it takes me months to select that may inspire you further to go for your dreams…

I will not be able to gather all the generation during the most important Smrikva Bowl moment… that was envisaged for 22nd of June at 6:00 PM… when I have the pleasure to present each book donated to the Smrikva Bowl library… and nominate each player in person Smrikva Bowl Ambassador for several countries you happen to be linked with and for the whole world…

I will not be able to share with them the always amazing Ambassador’s package gift… with other valuable gifts… and let each of you make in person the Grand Slam wish that generations keep sharing with their olive tree… when they donate their names to the planted olive tree…

There are 27 Smrikva Bowl players holding 33 junior Grand Slam titles and 1 senior Grand Slam so far… and there are many more who competed on Grand Slams… and I am sure many of you will also be Grand Slam players because that was written in your dreams… and many Smrikva Bowl children dreams in the long run become true…

We will not be in position to celebrate that moment with ice cream that we have on Smrikva Bowl thanks to Donna Vekic’s family since 2004… as we always do after the Ambassador’s nomination ceremony…

I will not be able to let you bring home the magic bottle of one of the most special olive oils in the world… and to let your family bring home a very prestige bottle of wine we do in Smrikve…

I will not be in position to share with families the answers to the question that I usually share during Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Forum on 23rd of June at 6:00 PM… and share how much this generation trains and how much the past Smrikva Bowl generations trained in order to increase chances for reaching your dreams one day…

I will not be able to teach each of you and let you bring home „IGRA“ game, the funny doubles game, that generations of Smrikva Bowl players started to love… the fun to play it with music and with a new friend… we always started „IGRA“ game on Wednesday night after the Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talent development path Forum…

I will not be able to share with each of the children the „Lucky Draw“ gift… a magic moment that is already tradition on our schedule on Thursday at 4:00 PM… and I will not be able to share in person many inspiring stories of our past Smrikva Bowl players that for years have been sending me some signed items for you… and let the children live this tennis circle of life story… moment when each Smrikva Bowl player receive a memory item signed by past Smrikva Bowl players…

I will not be able to bring you to visit Brioni islands on Friday… and let you see the natural paradise… where dinosaurs lived millions years ago… the magic place with long and impressive historical heritage… place that Robert Koch healed from malaria more than a century ago…

I am sorry that you will not have the opportunity to eat every day our sandwiches that your players’ tag allows you to have during the whole event… several young staff members told me that for them this are the best sandwiches in the world… and those sandwiches helped us always to create that birthday party feeling that last for more than a week… and we will miss the special pizza party on Friday night with the semifinals and finals of the „IGRA“ funny doubles… with chilling music in our garden under the stars during a pleasant summer night…

We will not live the magic finals with the ball kids… and we will not be able to let you live the awarding ceremony moment… the bike ride of the Champions… the Champions signing of the US OPEN Wilson Ball that arrives from the US OPEN… that also Dominic Thiem signed during his Smrikva Bowl with wish at the time to win it one day and last year he did it… to cheers those who would have been going to Patrick Mouratoglou Academy and to cheer those who would have been awarded with Wilson International contracts…

We will miss the moment of the cake… and the moment of our pool party where we all celebrate together many new friendships that have been made during the week…

I am very sorry for all the above living memories we will miss…

In all the above moments during Smrikva Bowl we are always all together… parents, kids, coaches and our 50 staff members… and in our last Government pandemic instructions in public gathering is allowed the presence of maximum 25 people at the moment… and our reduced event this year would have gathered 300 people in total…

Smrikva Bowl mission is to inspire, develop and spread cosmopolitan values. Love, friendship and empathy are cosmopolitan values per excellence for people and humanity… and I always dream Smrikva Bowl children may develop into peace makers one day… and their rackets and skills might be instrument of peace and instruments to foster mutual understanding among people…

Culture, children, sport and music are part of the Smrikva Bowl idea of the cosmopolitan world… each of the above four elements I elected long time ago as part of my vision of cosmopolitan world… they were all chosen being each of them able to cross human borders… and each four of them I find being pillars of peace… and it is true that over the last year the world I dream about is shaking but I am sure this pandemic will end and peaceful travel will return in the long run…

Tennis players are, with very few others professionals, the first global citizens of today… and they already re-started to travel around the World, playing in big stadiums with no public at the moment… and once the stadiums will be full with public again we will all know that the pandemic is over…

I hope all your dreams you shared with me to help children… to help people in need… to promote mutual understanding among people… to help the environment and animals… will come true one day…

In tennis without mistakes we cannot get better… and what is happening to all of us is a challenging experience and I do hope we will learn something from it…

Although I might not have pleasure to meet most of the 26h generation players in person my wish is to welcome each child that passed the selection process to become part of the Smrikva Bowl family…

By receiving this acceptance letter I am pleased to nominate each 26th Smrikva Bowl generation child the Smrikva Bowl Ambassador of this second very special year when Smrikva Bowl was not celebrated due to pandemic…

Before pandemic we usually gathered always 100+ candidates representing on average over 40 countries and six continents… for this year we reduced the draws in order to increase our possibilities of gathering to maximum 64 players… and there were so many super brave candidates representing 35+ countries and 5 continents who passed the selection process…

I wish to share with you all that over 47% of the children of this generation are speaking 3 or more languages… about 44% play a music instrument… over 50% are ranked #1 in their area of origin… and we get to 80% of the players being among the top 3 players…

All the children are great at school… and most of them practice another or more sports…

Over the years… in the tennis world… among the world greatest coaches… Smrikva Bowl children built the Smrikva Bowl reputation… and this is all that we have… just the words of those who lived Smrikva Bowl before your year… it took us 25 generations to build it… and I wish to rely on 26th generation that the circle will not break and will continue…

Although I will not be able to see you compete on Smrikva Bowl I am pleased to let you know that I will be pleased if you use among your achievements that you were selected for this year Smrikva Bowl edition…

Your child name will be listed among 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 generation selected players… and I will publish the list of the accepted candidates, as per tradition, on the day when we have scheduled the opening ceremony of the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021… on 21st of June…

… and I can assure each of you that from what you shared with me, if you keep nurturing your dreams, you all have great chances to realize them in years to come…

There will be an old olive tree in Smrikve dedicated to the 26th generation and I do hope that some of you during your lifetime may have the opportunity to visit your tree…

It was a difficult decision to take… I had hopes in scientific community… I was happy when vaccine was discovered… but I learned, as we all are learning, that we will need a little bit more time to win this War…

We had several lock downs world wide over the last year and because of the lock downs the spread of the virus was contained… at the same time we still have limited number of people which are immune to the virus… and the vaccine started to be applied 4 months ago with production capacities which are insufficient for our current world needs… for this reason the available supply of the vaccine is insufficient to create safe environment we need… and the combination of the above two elements is producing the current third wave we are living in many countries world wide…

We all know that thanks to scientists we will win this battle… but the battle will not be over this summer…

The Spanish flu lasted for more than 2 years and had 4 waves… and if there will be no new surprises I do hope that already by the end of this year the situation will be much better in many countries and that during 2022 we may expect the pandemic to be declared over… but I also learned that every forecast we make can change and so far have changed in worst for so many time so far, I do hope that it may change for better in the future…

I am sorry that this generation will not have the opportunity to experience the Smrikva Bowl MORE THAN TENNIS element… I never wished to explain in detail what is our more than tennis all about… and I always let this element be lived by each Smrikva Bowl child on its own… but I wish to thanks the past Smrikva Bowl players who shared part of our story with you and passed a part of the Smrikva message to you…

Last year we were hit with the pandemic first wave and the 25th edition was canceled… as per tradition on 21.9.2020 during the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors day… the new presentation with requirements for the 26th edition was published… I asked each of you not to submit the candidacy material before 1st of January 2021… because in September the situation was still bad… but I had hope that situation will get better…

When the vaccine discovery was announced I had a big hope that we will be able to meet… but unfortunately there were surprises for all of us and the world conditions are still not good…

We had our traditional and unique Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks scheduled for the end of April… for years we’ve been doing this special learning experience week in spring for the selected Smrikva Bowl players and families… and selected alumni for this year classes were from 3 continents and 10 different countries… at the end of January we took decision to move our classes to Spring 2022 because the world safety situation was envisaged to be insufficient to travel and gather for the end of April…

My hope in faster recovery started to vanish a bit after delays in vaccine supply started to be announced… and Governments in EU started to reschedule vaccination plans… at the moment is clear that in many countries the process will be much longer than expected and all those countries with insufficient vaccine will continue to apply some kind of restrictive measures…

Sharing and exchanging periodically my thoughts about possible Smrikva Bowl execution with our medical staff in Pula, which for years attend Smrikva Bowl as our staff members, and know well what type of event we do organize, in our most recent discussions all of them confirmed to me that this summer we will be still far away from having possibilities to organize gathering like our Smrikva Bowl is.

Our selection process was closed on 30th of March… and till the last I kept thinking of possible scenarios but deterioration of the situation in Europe do not leave us any choice… I am glad that I did not give up from the selection process and hoped till the end… I was pleased to get to know you… all of the candidacies that I received arrived from very brave families and this mean that is very likely that the children will be very brave too…

I was very pleased to learn about your children and your families via selection process… and I wish to share again that this year generation is a great generation… both girls and boys are very brave…
I am deeply sorry that the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 generation birthday party will not take place…

As Smrikva Bowl accepted player and as Smrikva Bowl Ambassador you will have your dedicated olive tree living in Smrikve… you will have the possibility to visit us with your family for tennis holidays… you will have the possibility to present your candidacy for our unique Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks program… you will be eligible to support the Smrikva Bowl candidates in the future… you are welcomed to use in your curriculum that you were selected player for the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 edition… and in 15-20 years from now I would be pleased if you visit us with your family for the Million plus Smrikva Bowl Family Week program…

Go for your dreams… and remember Smrikva Bowl is just a little step… you passed the selection process… and do not be sad but keep preparing for new challenges and new tournaments because soon the pandemic will finish and the World will connect again…

Best wishes to all the family,

Miodrag Bozovic

Na žalost ni 26.-ti Smrikva Bowl 2021 se neće moći održati zbog trajanja svjetske pandemije

Prije pandemije obično smo okupljali uvijek više od 100 kandidata koji su u prosjeku predstavljali preko 40 zemalja i šest kontinenata … za ovu smo godinu smanjili broj mjesta kako bi povećali šanse da se možda okupimo i smanjili smo ždrijebove na maksimalno 64 igrača … i ponovno je odaziv bio jako velik… bilo je jako puno super hrabrih i talentiranih kandidata koji su prošli selekciju unatoč danas zatvorenom svijetu i predstavljaju 35+ zemalja i 5 kontinenata …

Tijekom Smrikva Bowl-a uvijek smo svi zajedno … roditelji, djeca, treneri i naših 50 članova Staff-a … i u našim posljednjim uputama na javnom okupljanju trenutno je dozvoljeno prisustvo od najviše 25 ljudi, a u nekim Županijama je i to smanjeno… a naše predviđeno i umanjeno okupljanje bi ove godine brojilo cirka 300 osoba…

U nastavku dijelim pismo napisano kandidatima koji su prošli selekciju 26.tog Smrikva Bowl-a…

Draga 26.-ta Smrikva Bowl 2021. generacija,

Drago mi je potvrditi vam da je vaše dijete uspješno završilo proces selekcije za ovogodišnju Smrikvu te da je odabrano da bude dio 26.-e Smrikva Bowl 2021. generacije…

Istodobno mi je žao što vas obavještavam da smo, nakon pažljivih razmatranja evolucije pandemije, odlučili da ovog ljeta neće biti minimalnih sigurnosnih uvjeta koji su potrebni za proslavu generacije Smrikva Bowl-a rođene 2011. godine …

Ovo mi je drugo vrlo teško pismo o primanju na Smrikvu koje pišem u našoj 25-godišnjoj povijesti … ova pandemija je poput jednog svjetskog sukoba i još uvijek traje… i nažalost neće završiti prije ljeta kao što sam se nadao…

Od svog osnutka Smrikva Bowl je zamišljen kao jedna dječja rođendanska proslava koja traje danima… a trenutna situacija ne dopušta da se okupljamo ni slavimo …

Imao sam nadu nakon što je otkriveno cjepivo da će ovaj prvi svjetski rat 21. stoljeća biti blizu svog kraja već ovog proljeća i da smo do ljeta imali dobre šanse za povratak u normalan život u Evropi … ali sporost postupka cijepljenja čini da se i znanstvenici slažu da još uvijek treba biti strpljiv i da će ovaj rat biti uskoro gotov, ali ne toliko brzo koliko mi svi želimo…

Mali broj ljudi na svijetu ima imunitet, a vlasti u većini dijelova svijeta i dalje zabranjuju javna okupljanja …

Žao mi je što i 2011.-ta, kao i generacija Smrikva Bowl iz 2010.-te, neće imati uspomene na Smrikva Bowl, ali pamtit će Smrikva Bowl po jednoj složenoj situaciji u kojoj je čovječanstvo živjelo od kraja 2019. godine…

Bila mi je čast učiti o vašoj djeci… i želim podijeliti s vama da je nivo nadarenosti kandidata koji su prošli ovogodišnju selekciju Smrikva Bowl-a vrlo visok… i po svim vrijednostima koji se za Smrikvu gledaju je u skladu s najboljim generacijama Smrikve…

Impresionirala me strast koju su vaša djeca i vaše obitelji ulagali u razvoj svojih talenata unatoč pandemiji… i nakon što se ova kriza završi siguran sam da će vaša djeca zasjati na svjetskoj pozornici… i sa zadovoljstvom ću ih pratiti. ..

Jedina poveznica i veza koju smo do sada imali su mailovi razmjenjeni proteklih mjeseci s onima koji su započeli proces kandidiranja na početku siječnja… imamo zajedničke prijatelje koji su nas povezali, naše ambasadore Smrikva Bowl-a koji su podržali kandidature vaše djece … drago mi je da od neke djece ove generacije poznajem trenere jer mi je njihova vještina da pomognu u razvoju teniskog talenta poznata već godinama… a sa vrlo malo obitelji sam imao i osobno čast se upoznati, jer su neki od vas braća i sestre bivših igrača Smrikva Bowl-a …

U nastavku želim podijeliti ono što dijelim s djecom tijekom njihove orijentacije i završne registracije… kada ih upoznajem kako izgleda tjedan Smrikva Bowl-a… budući da svatko od vas može vizualizirati svoje snove… naučio sam to čitajući vaša pisma o čemu sanjate… i u dostavljenim kandidaturama ste dokazali da ste djeca Smrikva Bowl-a… želim podijeliti ono što će nam nedostajati da proživimo zajedno …

Neću biti u mogućnosti razgovarati s vašom djecom i osobno ih upoznati u subotu 19. i nedjelju 20. lipnja kada obično živimo trenutak završne registracije i orijentacije sa djecom Smrikva Bowl-a …

To je trenutak kada imam prilike vidjeti vaše knjige koje ste donijeli na poklon knjižnici Smrikva Bowl–a i razmijeniti nekoliko riječi i osmijeha sa svakim od vas… objasniti vam tjedan Smrikva Bowl-a o kojem su brojni od vas sanjali i pripremali se godinama zahvaljujući pričama onih koji su vam Smrikva Bowl predstavili… i žao mi je što vas neću moći zamoliti da zaokružite u završnom prijavnom obrascu snove za koje bi željeli igrati u životu… i osobno poduprijeti vaše snove …

To je i trenutak kada imam priliku da vam poklonim neke od prvih poklona Smrikva Bowl-a … i svaki taj dar ima svoju simboličku priču za koju znam da vam može pomoći i koja može nadahnuti izgradnju vašeg razvojnog puta … i nedostajat će mi osmijeh u očima kad vam pokažem svaki predmet koji vam tradicionalno postaje prvi poklon …

Neću biti u mogućnosti predstaviti svako dijete Smrikve u ponedjeljak, 21. lipnja, u 8:30 tijekom naše ceremonije otvaranja… kada vas obično zamolim da donesete svoje putovnice, putovnice za Smrikvu su vaši teniski reketi, i kada volim podijeliti u samo nekoliko riječi snove svakog od vas sa cijelom generacijom i prisjetiti se Ambasadora koji su podržali vaše kandidature …

Otvaranje je uvijek nadahnuto glazbom za koju su potrebni mjeseci i mjeseci za njen odabir… svaka odabrana pjesma nosi neku poruku s idejom da vas dodatno nadahne da ostvarite vaše snove … i da ne odustajete od njih…

Neću uspjeti okupiti čitavu generaciju tijekom najvažnijeg trenutka Smrikva Bowl-a … koji je bio predviđen za 22. lipnja u 18:00 sati… kad mi je zadovoljstvo predstaviti svaku knjigu poklonjenu knjižnici Smrikva Bowl-a… i nominirati svakog igrača Ambasadorom Smrikve u nekoliko zemalja za koje je slučaj da ste obiteljski ili svojim življenjem povezani dajući vam mandat koji vrijedi za cijeli svijet …

Žao mi je što neću moći podijeliti s djecom uvijek čaroban Ambasadorski poklon paket… u kojem uvijek ima puno divnih poklona… a i jedan poseban koji svakome omogućuje da napravi svoju osobnu Grand Slam želju dok polaže grudu zemlje kraj masline… generacije godinama dijele svoju želju sa svojim maslinama kad daruju svoja imena svojoj maslini generacije…

27 igrača Smrikva Bowl-a osvojilo je 33 juniorske Grand Slam titule i 1 seniorski Grand Slam naslov… a ima ih puno više koji su se natjecali na Grand Slamovima … i iskreno vjerujem da će i mnogi od vas zaigrati Grand Slam turnire jer ste brojni baš to naveli među vašim snovima u pismima…

Nećemo biti u mogućnosti proslaviti taj trenutak imenovanja Ambasadorom Smrikve sa tradicionalnim sladoledom koji imamo na Smrikvi od 2004.godine zahvaljujući obitelji Donne Vekić… uvijek je sladoled taj koji zapečati dječijim osmijehom naš svečani trenutak postajanja Ambasadorom…

Neću vam moći pokloniti da ponesete kući čarobnu bocu jednog od najposebnijih maslinovih ulja na svijetu sa stabala koje su sadile generacije prije vas… i da poklonim vašoj obitelji kolekcijsku bocu vina koje radimo u Smrikvama…

Neću biti u mogućnosti s obitelji podijeliti odgovore na pitanja koje obično podijelim tijekom Smrikva Bowl Foruma o razvoju talenta koji je bio na programu za 23. lipnja u 18:00 sati… tada obično podijelim koliko ova generacija trenira i odgovorim na brojna zanimljiva pitanja koje roditelji obično imaju u ovoj dobi za svoju talentiranu djecu… kako bi povećali šanse za postizanje svojih snova kroz vrijeme…

Neću biti u stanju osobno naučiti svakog od vas i pokloniti vam da ponesete sa sobom kući „IGRA“ igru, veselu igru parova, koju su generacije Smrikva Bowl igrača počele voljeti i širiti po svijetu… zabavno je igrati uz glazbu i uz novog prijatelja… “IGRA” uvijek započinje u srijedu navečer nakon našeg Foruma o razvoju talenata …

Neću moći podijeliti svakom djetetu poklon „sretnog ždrijeba“… magičan trenutak koji je već tradicionalno u našem rasporedu u četvrtak u 16:00 sati… i neću moći osobno ispričati brojne nadahnjujuće priče bivših igrača Smrikva Bowl-a… i zavrtiti još jedan teniski krug života… trenutak kada svaki igrač Smrikve osvoji za ponijeti kući potpisani predmet od strane nekog bivšeg igrača Smrikva Bowl-a …

Neću vas moći povesti u petak u posjet Brijonskim otocima… pokazati vam da vidite taj prirodni raj… u kojem su dinosauri živjeli prije puno milijuna godina… jedno čarobno mjesto s dugom i impresivnom povijesnom baštinom. .. mjesto koje je Robert Koch izliječio od malarije prije više od jednog stoljeća …
Žao mi je što nećete imati priliku svakoga dana uživati u besplatnim sendvičima koje vam kartica igrača Smrikve omogućuje tijekom cijelog trajanja Smrikve… onaj osjećaj rođendana koji traje tjedan dana… za što su i naši sendviči od prve Smrikve zaslužni… i poseban pizza party u petak navečer uz polufinale i finale “IGRE” veselih parova … uz laganu glazbu koja se obično širi iz parka Smrikvi… pod zvijezdama ugodne ljetne večeri…

Nećemo proživjeti zajedno još jedno finale sa sakupljačima loptica… nećemo živijeti zajedno trenutak ceremonije dodjele nagrada… zapljeskati pobjedničkom krugu bicikle po terenu… trenutak kada pobjednici potpisuju slavnu US OPEN Wilson veliku loptu koja dolazi iz New York-a… takvu je u svoje vrijeme Dominic Thiem potpisao uz želju da jednoga dana podigne najveći pehar US OPEN-a i prošle godine je to i učinio… nećemo proslaviti i zapljeskati onima koji će otići u Akademiju kod Patrika Mouratoglou-a kao što nećeno zapljeskati osvajačima međunarodnog Wilson ugovora…

Nećemo proživjeti trenutak torte… i zajedničkog slavlja u bazenu gdje proslavljamo mnoga nova prijateljstva stečena tijekom tjedna …

Jako mi je žao zbog svega navedenoga što nećemo proživjeti zajedno …

U svim gore navedenim trenucima tijekom Smrikva Bowl-a uvijek smo svi zajedno … roditelji, djeca, treneri i naših 50 članova Staff-a … i u našim posljednjim uputama na javnom okupljanju trenutno je dozvoljeno prisustvo od najviše 25 ljudi, a u nekim Županijama je i to smanjeno… a naše predviđeno i umanjeno okupljanje bi ove godine brojilo cirka 300 osoba…

Misija Smrikva Bowl-a je nadahnuti, razvijati i širiti kozmopolitske vrijednosti. Ljubav, prijateljstvo i empatija su primarne kozmopolitske vrijednosti za ljude i čovječanstvo … i uvijek sanjam da se djeca Smrikva Bowl-a jednog dana mogu razviti u mirotvorce … a njihovi reketi i vještine da mogu postati instrument mira i instrumenti za poticanje međusobnog razumijevanja među ljudima i narodima…

Kultura, djeca, sport i glazba dio su moje ideje bezgraničnog svijeta Smrikva Bowl-a … svaki od navedena četiri elementa koja sam davno birao kao dio svoje vizije kozmopolitskog svijeta koji mogu spajati ljude … svi su oni izabrani jer vrlo lako nadilaze postojeće ljudske granice … i svaka od ta četiri elementa smatram stupovima mira … i istina je da se tijekom posljednje godine svijet o kojem sanjam trese, ali siguran sam da će ova pandemija završiti i mirna i sigurna putovanja će se vratiti …

Tenisači su, uz još samo par drugih profesija, prvi građani svijeta današnjice… i dobra vijest je da su ponovno krenuli putovati svijetom, danas igraju uglavnom u velikim stadionima bez gledatelja… a kada stadioni budu puni ljudi to će biti znak da je pandemija gotova…

Nadam se da će se svi vaši snovi koje ste podijelili sa mnom, da želite pomagati djeci… pomagati ljudima kojima je pomoć potrebna… da podržite istraživanja koja mogu liječiti bolesti za koje lijeka nema… pridonositi očuvanju okoliša i zalagati se za bolji život životinja… da sve to neće biti zaboravljeno kada ova nepogoda prođe… i da će više vas možda posvetiti svoj život da se na tim poljima nešto lijepoga učini…

U tenisu bez grešaka ne možemo postati bolji … a ono što nas je zadesilo je izazovno iskustvo i nadam se da ćemo svi naučiti iz toga…

Iako možda neću imati zadovoljstvo osobno upoznati većinu igrača 26. generacije Smrikve, moja je želja da svako djete koje je prošlo proces selekcije ovogodišnje Smrikve postane i dio velike obitelji Smrikva Bowl-a …

Primanjem ovog potvrdnog pisma o primitku na Smrikvu koja se ponovno neće odigrati zbog više sile… želja mi je imenovati svako dijete ovogodišnje generacije Smrikva Bowl-a Ambasadorom Smrikve…

Prije pandemije obično smo okupljali uvijek više od 100 kandidata koji su u prosjeku predstavljali preko 40 zemalja i šest kontinenata … za ovu smo godinu smanjili broj mjesta kako bi povećali šanse da se možda okupimo i smanjili smo ždrijebove na maksimalno 64 igrača … i ponovno je odaziv bio jako velik… bilo je jako puno super hrabrih i talentiranih kandidata koji su prošli selekciju unatoč danas zatvorenom svijetu i predstavljaju 35+ zemalja i 5 kontinenata …

Rado dijelim sa vama da su djeca Smrikve uvijek bila posebno marljiva… pa tako i ova generacija… više od 47% djece generacije govori 3 ili više jezika… oko 44% djece svira muzički instrument… preko 50% je najbolje u mjestu u kojem razvija svoj talenat… i dolazimo do 80% igrača koji su među prva 3 igrača u svojoj zemlji…

Sva djeca su sjajna u školi … i većina ih se bavi još nekim ili sa više sportova …

Kroz godine… u svijetu tenisa… čak i među najvećim svjetskim trenerima prevladava mišljenje da su djeca Smrikve posebna djeca… i istina je da su djeca Smrikve kroz svoje rezultate izgradila takvu reputaciju… trebalo je 25 generacija da sa polako izgradi to povjerenje… i želim dati moje povjerenje 26.-oj generaciji da će se to nastaviti…

Iako vas neću moći vidjeti kako se natječete na Smrikva Bowl-u… moja je želja da koristite među svojim dostignućima da ste bili izabrani za ovogodišnji Smrikva Bowl…

Ime vašeg djeteta biti će upisano među igračima koji su bili odabrani za 26.ti Smrikva Bowl 2021… a ja ću objaviti listu primljenih kandidata kao što to radimo po tradiciji na dan kada je bilo predviđeno svečano otvaranje 26. Smrikva Bowl 2021 … 21. lipnja 2021 godine…

… i mogu svakome reći da snove koje ste podijelili samnom, ukoliko ih nastavite njegovati i posvećivati im se, iz onoga što sam vidio, velike su šanse da će se oni i ostvariti u godinama koje dolaze …

U Smrikvama će rasti jedna stara maslina posvećena 26.-oj generaciji i nadam se da će više vas tijekom života imati priliku posjetiti maslinu i posjetiti mjesto na kojem ste trebali igrati vašu Smrikvu…

Bila je ovo teška odluka … nadao sam se u znanstvenu zajednicu … bio sam sretan kada je cjepivo otkriveno … ali sam naučio, kao što svi već primjećujemo, da će nam trebati malo više vremena za pobjedu u ovoj borbi …

Tijekom posljednje godine imali smo nekoliko zaključavanja širom svijeta, a zbog zaključavanja i širenje virusa je bilo kontrolirano … u isto vrijeme još uvijek imamo ograničen broj ljudi koji su imuni na virus … i cjepivo se počelo primjenjivati prije 4 mjeseca s proizvodnim kapacitetima koji su nedovoljni za naše trenutne svjetske potrebe … iz tog razloga dostupna opskrba cjepivom nije dovoljna da stvori sigurno okruženje koje nam treba za Smrikvu … a kombinacija gornja dva elementa nam pokazuje koliko smo i dalje ranjivi kroz trenutni treći val koji živimo u mnogim zemljama širom svijeta …

Osjećam da ćemo zahvaljujući znanstvenicima dobiti ovu bitku … ali bitka neće biti gotova do ovog ljeta …

Španjolska gripa trajala je više od 2 godine i imala je 4 vala … i ako neće biti novih iznenađenja, nadam se da će već do kraja ove godine situacija biti puno bolja u mnogim zemljama i da ćemo tijekom 2022. godine čuti da je pandemija proglašena gotovom … ali također sam svjestan da se svaka prognoza koju napravimo može promijeniti, a do sada se uglavnom mijenjala na gore, pa po zakonu velikih brojeva se nadam da će se u budućnosti možda promijeniti i na bolje …

Žao mi je što ova generacija neće imati priliku iskusiti ono nešte VIŠE OD TENISA što čini Smrikvu Smrikvom … nikada nisam želio detaljno objasniti što je to više od tenisa … i uvijek sam pustio da se taj element živi… i da ga svako dijete Smrikva Bowl-a na svoj način osjeti … ali želim zahvaliti prošlim generacijama Smrikva Bowl-a koji su sa vama podijelili dio naše priče i proslijedili vam dio poruke Smrikve …

Prošle godine pogodio nas je prvi val pandemije i 25. izdanje je otkazano … a po tradiciji 21.9.2020 za vrijeme dana Ambasadora Smrikve … objavljena je nova prezentacija sa detaljima za 26. izdanje … zamolio sam tada svakoga od vas da ne predaje materijal za kandidaturu prije 1. siječnja 2021 … jer je u rujnu situacija još uvijek bila dosta loša … ali imao sam i tada nadu da će se situacija popraviti …

Kad je objavljeno otkriće cjepiva, imao sam veliku nadu da ćemo se moći sastati … ali nažalost bilo je iznenađenja za sve nas, i uvijeti u svijetu, i posebno u EU, još uvijek nisu dobri za proslave kao što je Smrikva…

Tradicionalni i jedinstveni obiteljski tjedni Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week bio je predviđen za kraj travnja … i već godinama radimo ovaj posebni tjedan učenja kroz druženje tijekom proljeća za odabrane igrače i obitelji Smrikva Bowl-a … potvrđeni polaznici ovogodišnjih razreda bili su sa 3 kontinenta i 10 različitih zemalja … i već krajem siječnja smo donijeli odluku da nastavu premjestimo na proljeće 2022. jer smo očekivali da svjetska situacija neće biti dobra za putovanje i okupljanje do kraja travnja iz toliko različitih zemalja…

Moja nada u brži oporavak počela je pomalo blijediti nakon što su počele najave kašnjenja u opskrbi sa cjepivom …sve vlade u EU počele su reprogramirati planove cijepljenja … u ovom trenutku je jasno da će u mnogim zemljama taj proces biti mnogo duži od planiranog i sve one zemlje s nedovoljnim cjepivom nastavit će primjenjivati neke vrste restriktivnih mjera koje i trenutno živimo…

Dijeleći i često razmjenjujući svoja razmišljanja o održavanju Smrikva Bowl-a s našim medicinskim osobljem u Puli, koje godinama pohodi Smrikvu kao članovi Staff-a, i dobro znaju koju vrstu događaja organiziramo, u zadnjim raspravama su mi svi potvrdili da ćemo na žalost po njihovim procjenama ovog ljeta još uvijek biti daleko od mogućnosti organiziranja okupljanja kao što je naša Smrikva.

Naš postupak selekcije zatvoren je 30. ožujka … i do zadnjeg trenutka sam razmišljao o mogućim scenarijima, ali pogoršanje situacije u Europi ne ostavlja nam izbora … drago mi je da nisam odustao od procesa selekcije i nadao se do kraja … sve kandidature koje sam primio stigle su iz vrlo hrabrih obitelji, a to znači da će vrlo vjerojatno i njihova djeca biti vrlo hrabra .. .

Bilo mi je drago saznati više o vašoj djeci i vašim obiteljima kroz postupak odabira … i želim još jednom podijeliti kako je ovogodišnja generacija još jedna sjajna i hrabra generacija … i djevojčice i dječaci su vrlo hrabri … i drago mi je da ih odgajate da budu hrabri…

Uzimajući u obzir sve navedeno žao mi je što se 26. generacija Smrikva Bowl 2021 neće moći okupiti za svoj Smrikva Bowl …

Kao dijete koje je prošlo selekciju Smrikva Bowl-a i kao Ambasador Smrikva Bowl-a imati će svoje posvećeno stablo masline u Smrikvama … biti će dobro došli u Smrikve na teniski odmor… imati će mogućnost kandidiranja za obiteljski tjedan Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week… moći će podržati kandidate za Smrikva Bowl u budućnosti… moći ćete na svoju listu dostignuća upisati da ste izabrani za 26. izdanje Smrikva Bowl 2021… i za 15-20 godina bi mi bilo drago da me posjetite sa svojom obitelji za program Milijun plus Smrikva Bowl Family Week …

Vrijedno naprijed za svojim snovima! … Smrikva Bowl je jedan mali korak … na pravome ste putu … ne budite tužni, već se nastavite pripremati za nove izazove i turnire jer će uskoro pandemija završiti i svijet će se ponovno povezati …

Sve najljepše cijeloj obitelji,

Miodrag Božović

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 25th 2021: 51 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking… 26 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking… 8 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA… 2 players reached TOP 5 ATP/WTA ranking…

Their track record includes: 33 junior GRAND SLAM titles, 1 Grand Slam and 49 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 230+ 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.”

Smrikve c Code - brothers in arms

Over 10 years ago I wrote the below section… and if you read it you will find out that I love STAR WARS… and I love to use it in my mental training classes… and some of the past Smrikva Bowl players, today among the best players in their generations, attended with me Yoda’s classes… and they all know that
I admire those who contribute to maintain peace and promote mutual understanding among nations… something what Jedi’s job description could be…

I am also aware that over the last year the world discovered and is living a new experience which is a threat to the World peace and prosperity… and today my Smrikve c Code article is dedicated to the new challenge we are all still living… “may the force be with us”…

Smrikve, October 2010

The Star Wars “Return of the Jedi” is the first film I remember seeing with my dad at the cinema… it was 1983 and I was 10… the cinema was named “Istra”… I was the same age as the Smrikva Bowl players we host every year in Smrikve :)…

In the introduction of this article I would just underline that I like the way Jedi use the lightsabers and I like the way Smrikva Bowl kids use their rackets :)… Smrikve c Code is a story about virtue created by training and wish to learn…

My dad was pilot and for me watching The Star Wars with him at the cinema was a particular experience … I had many questions and he, as usual, with smile and pleasure answered to each of my questions…

Dad used to take me with him on the airport when I was little… and I remember him entering the cockpit of the plane with pilot helmet watching towards me and giving me the sign that he was ready to fly… than he turned on the engine of the plane and watched towards me again with smile in his eyes…

I stayed about 100 meters from the airplane with his colleagues and watched him taking his plane towards runway…

From the place where I stayed only part of the runway was visible because of the wood and he took the plane in the area that was invisible to me to prepare for the takeoff… I was able to hear the force of the engine… and when the sound of the force started to increase I knew that my dad will be visible soon… his colleagues were telling me “be ready soon your dad will come”… and when he started to be visible on the back of the plane there was the fire… almost half length of the airplane had the fire extension formed by his engine and I just noticed his helmet in the cockpit and followed by my kids eyes his airplane reaching the sky…

The Jedi are characters in the Star Wars universe bound to a code of morality and justice and are trained in the use of the light side of the force. They learn to use the Force, and weapons, known as lightsabers, which emits a controlled energy flow in the shape of a sword, to serve and protect their Republic and the galaxy from conflicts or government instability…

Since long time ago I started to note the ability of Smrikva Bowl kids using the racket and thinking at the same time on Jedi’s ability to use the lightsaber :)…

Some of my students use Wilson’s ying & young damper… known as Tao sign… they like the symbol but are still too young to have an idea about it ;)… I will try to use this symbol to help me explain how little the difference could be in forming a balance in anything we do… every action has a reaction in our World… in the first classes of physics we learn Newton’s third law…

Tao is an abstract concept found in Taoism, Confucianism, and more generally in ancient Chinese philosophy and East Asian cultures.

While the word itself translates as “way”, “path”, or “route”… it is often used philosophically to signify the fundamental nature of the World we are used to living on Earth… it is often referred to as “the nameless”, because neither it nor its principles can ever be adequately expressed in words.

While the Tao cannot be expressed, Taoism holds that it can be known, and its principles can be followed. Much of Taoist writing focuses on the value of following the Tao – called Te (virtue) – and of the ultimate uselessness of trying to understand or control Tao outright. This is often expressed through yin and yang arguments, where every action creates a counter-action as a natural, unavoidable movement within manifestations of the Tao.

I used the above short explanation to introduce the Codes used in the Star Wars universe…

As in the Tao symbol there were knights trained to use the dark side of the force and the light side… this is the way how mankind functioned since the human written memory goes back…

For new ideas people have to go beyond… out of the known patterns by using their imagination… the kids are many times Master in this…

“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.”… :)

DARK SIDE (The Sith Code)

• Peace is a lie. There is only passion.
• Through passion, I gain strength.
• Through strength, I gain power.
• Through power, I gain victory.
• Through victory, my chains are broken.
• The Force shall free me.

LIGHT SIDE (The Jedi Code)

• There is no emotion, there is peace.
• There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
• There is no passion, there is serenity.
• There is no death, there is the Force.

The Jedi Code was rewritten by Grand Master Luke Skywalker upon reestablishing the Jedi Order:

• Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
• Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
• Jedi respect all life, in any form.
• Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
• Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

Smrikve c code is the code…

…and… just one more thing…

… “La guerra no le hace a uno grandioso.”… ;)

I am pleased to close this article with Dire Straits and their Brothers in Arms song… starting with the sound of the thunder… The concert was made in 1988 to honor Nelson Mandela…

*BROTHERS IN ARMS *

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you’ll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you’ll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I’ve whittnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun’s gone to hell
And the moon’s riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it’s written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We’re fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

Smrikva Bowl Library story... "books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind..." ;)

26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 generation will be selected in less than 30 days… and today I will be pleased to recall a story that is linked to the books and the title of today… linked to the books but also to our players who bring them to their Smrikva Bowl… :)

…it is the story of heritage… but as written in the title… it is again a story related to the spring via pollen … but this time is a kind of mind pollen… ;)…

James Russell Lowell compared books to the bees and I like it… “books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind…”


In 2009 we started the building of the Smrikva Bowl library. Each Smrikva Bowl player is requested to bring with him a cultural book that will remember his stay in Smrikve and will represent his culture of origin that one day guests of Smrikve will be able to consult, enjoy and discover.

Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors are today spread in 95 countries and all the continents. Historically their task was to search the talented kids in their countries of origin and invite them to play the Smrikva Bowl but from this year they are also our Cultural Ambassadors.

The old olive tree Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors plant every year is a symbol of friendship and intergenerational responsibility and Smrikva Bowl’s idea of children, sport, music and culture that are able to pass all frontiers are incorporated in the creation of this Smrikva Bowl Library.

I used to write in my first book on European Union and Cosmopolitan Democracy that we are those who represent the current civilization.

This is an important concept. Today people live an average of about 80 years. What we call civilization is mostly made up of the human knowledge we have accumulated until today, which our institutions pass onto future generations.

The books represent the greatest human memory that can help us understand what we see combined with cumulated personal experience of our daily lives. But given the fragility of the circle of life it is very easy for people to ignore these facts and lose sight of our human knowledge. It takes just a few generations to lose this great heritage.

We have gotten used to rapid technological progress, but social and civil progress is slower and more complex. Humans learn throughout their whole lifetime, from books and schools, but we also mostly learn from our personal experiences.

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

Thanks in advance to all the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 generation players who will help this year with their visit to Smrikve to build another piece of the Smrikva Bowl World library :)

Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2021

It is greetings time and I hope that my words find you and your dear one well… I also do hope if you are going through difficult moments that things will get better in 2021…

New Year time is always a good time to set new goals but the uncertainty we are living today is adding difficulties to put dates on our dreams… as Yoda would say „patience we must have“…

Best wishes to you and your family,

Mio


Vrijeme je za poželjeti nešto lijepoga u nadolazećoj godini i nadam se da vas ove moje riječi nalaze dobroga zdravlja i vedroga duha… isto tako se nadam da ukoliko prolazite kroz teže trenutke će sve krenuti na malo bolje u 2021.godini …

Novogodišnje vrijeme je uvijek dobro vrijeme za postavljanje novih ciljeva… istina je da neizvjesnost u kojoj živimo dodatno otežava postavljanje datuma na zamišljene snove i ne dopušta im da se pretvaraju u ciljeve baš onako kako bi željeli… pa kako bi mudri Yoda rekao “strpljenja treba imati”…
Sve najljepše,

Mio


È tempo degli auguri e spero le mie parole trovino bene te ed i tuoi cari … spero anche qualora stiate attraversando momenti difficili che le cose andranno meglio nel 2021 …

Il capodanno è sempre un buon momento per fissare nuovi obiettivi … l’incertezza che stiamo vivendo sta aggiungendo difficoltà a mettere le date ai nostri sogni… come direbbe Yoda “pazienza dobbiamo avere”…

I miei migliori auguri a te ed i tuoi cari,

Mio

We collected 2020 olives and made olive oil that will end up in bottles for the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 Ambassadors - Istrian olive oil - one of the best in the World and Smrikva "seeds of the Legends" are making it more and more special

We had 5 long collection days in Smrikve which started on 22nd of October, continued on 25th, 29th and 7th and 8th November…

… over the five collection days over 25 family members and friends helped us and we had each beautiful olive collection day…

It is the story of the 2021 Smrikva Bowl olive oil production :)…

In Smrikve is considered 2021 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 each of our day is always too short to collect all… and the team we had is always great team…

we started collecting this year at the LOUNGE with just few olive trees and few in Fazana…

we continued with Valbandon…

… and during our third collection day… we completed the LOUNGE and Fazana…

… our fourth day was the biggest day with 1928 kg collected… and we were at Smrikve courtyard… and just the part in front of the LOUNGE

… the last day was dedicated to the part nearby the vineyard…

it is the record year in quantities… it is the record year in liters… over 110 trees reached important dimensions… and there are many young trees still developing… LOUNGE trees were amazing this year with an average of 85 kg per tree…

Our Legendary olive trees hold names of over 1650 players coming from 95 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 tennis Champions of today… and in the following I am pleased to share the story of the Heritage Collection bottles…

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

… so far 25 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA… 50 reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA… holding 46 professional ATP/WTA titles (1 Grand Slam title)… 27 children holds a total of 34 Grand Slam titles and over 210 players study or completed their studies 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 today 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”.

The story of:

Smrikva Bowl Heritage Olive Oil – “seeds of the Legends” Limited edition

… it is the story of the most prestige olive oil in the World with very unique story… and the price as of today is set on 27 Euro for 200 ml collection bottle… 27 is determined as the total number of Grand Slam titles conquered by the children who planted the trees and thanks to our talented seeds it is updated year after year…

Smrikve, 28th of April 2019 – November 2020

In 2005, for the 10th Smrikva Bowl anniversary, we started a tradition of planting an Olive tree during our Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s nomination ceremony.

The Olive tree selected are traditionally older then our players. 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 understand and to learn to preserve all that each of us is born with.

In March 2019 we bottled for the first time a special collection.

At the time 14 generations (over 1440 players) had their olive trees when the story of limited collections started. The children who planted our olives makes the collection bottles so special.

As of March 2019, over 1930 players from 87 countries and 6 continents participated and on the first 14 collection bottles representing 14 generations was written the following:

Smrikva Bowl was founded in 1996 and over 1930 players from 87 countries and 6 continents participated so far. In 2005 Smrikva Bowl players started to plant olive trees. 14 generations (over 1440 players) have their olive tree in Smrikve.

As of 18/03/2019, their track record* is:
• 30 (23) junior Grand Slam titles conquered by 23 (17) players
• 30 (13) professional ATP/WTA titles
• 45 (31) players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking & 21 (15) players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking
• 150+ (100+) players received scholarships to study in the US

Note – In brackets: 14 olive trees generations track record

The collection bottle price is linked to the number of Grand Slam conquered by Smrikva Bowl players at the time when the bottles are made and first collection bottle pricing was 23 Euro.

Collection bottles are tracked and the 1st limited edition is spread as follows:

2019 “Seeds of the Legends” Heritage Olive Oil Limited edition

1 of 14 – Smrikve
2 of 14 – Babic family
3 of 14 – Pieragostini family

21st of September - Smrikva Bowl Ambassador Day - 26th annual Smrikva Bowl 2021 "seeds of the Legends" research begins

Dear Smrikva Bowl and Smrikve friends!

It is 21st of September 2020, Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s Day (“SBA” Day), and time to start thinking about 26th annual candidacy process…

Usually is the day when we celebrate the opening of the new selection process but as most of you already know we were not able to hold the 25th edition and gather the generation of talents born in 2010 and as of today we can not foresee if there will be conditions to gather the generation of talents born in 2011 for the 26th edition that is scheduled for the end of June 2021.

World map

It is a very challenging year for some Smrikva Bowl families around the world… some friends have passed away due to coronavirus… and as of today the progress of scientists can not guarantee us that 2021 will be the year of Smrikva Bowl normality we are used to… we have to stick with the hope and for this reason it was decided to stick with our tradition and present the traditional requirements for the next edition on the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors’ Day…

Although there were limited tennis activity this year… our over 2150 SB players spread in 95 countries continue writing the “seeds of the Legends”story…

US OPEN 2020 had 3 Smrikva Bowl players in the quarterfinals: Dominic Thiem, Alex De Minaur and Borna Coric… and Dominic conquered his first Grand Slam title which is also the first senior Grand Slam title conquered by a Smrikva Bowl player…

6282 days after his stay in Smrikve, Domi was lifting the Grand Slam trophy… and it happened to be in New York… 6282 days is just 17 years, 2 months and 10 days… it does not take 5 minutes to turn a childhood dream into reality… but Domi is a proving that dreaming with hard work and staying humble pays off in the long run…

… 1120 signed books arriving from 74 countries continue to be part of the Smrikva Bowl Heritage Library…

… over 1650 names were given by 16 SB generations to old Smrikva Bowl olive trees…

… 33 Grand Slam titles (including junior titles) are conquered by 26 former Smrikva Bowl players…

… 45 professional ATP/WTA titles (1 Grand Slam title)…

… 50 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA…

… 24 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 players who already graduated from Universities and I am pleased to track how many Smrikva Bowl children had the opportunity to get scholarship in the United States thanks to their academic and tennis skills and over 210 children were able to do it…

… I like to list the numbers but who lived Smrikva Bowl knows that our story is always more than numbers… more than tennis… and I am grateful to the Smrikva Bowl seeds that in different ways keep inspiring us to continue to put our efforts in gathering talents at our family garden…

There are many ways to show intergenerational solidarity… and I would like to thanks families who were part of Srmikva Bowl and keep answering my calls to send signed gifts for each Smrikva Bowl participant of our already new SB tradition named “Lucky Draw”…

This special moment is an opportunity for me to share the past players stories with children who are dreaming to follow their footprints… every present child at that moment of intergenerational celebration ceremony bring home a memory gift and I am sure they also discovered a new friend to cheer…

I was pleased to notice thanks to Facebook also that some Smrikva Bowl seeds started to form families and they keep loving the game… I do hope in 8-10 years to see some children of Smrikva Bowl seed playing Smrikva Bowl too…

I am also pleased to share that the 6th Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2021 with Luca Appino will be held during the following weeks: 24th of April – 1st of May 2021 and 2nd of May – 9th of May 2021. The Family Week was born with vision to share with families and players some precious hints that may be of help to their long term development and is probably one of the greatest learning experiences for players and families that can be given at this young age.

I am pleased to share like every year few stories that are important to me and are part of the Smrikva Bowl foundation code…

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… and to me civil society and peace are pillars for any talent development possibility… we’ve seen over this last year how easy the difficulties and challenges put in front of people can change the life we are used to…

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 that more you train more become natural to lead by example… only after many mistakes we have the chance to become better by learning from them… always embracing the challenge… especially when we are forced out of our comfort zone…

I do believe in a beauty of learning and inexperience is a powerful asset. My advice during orientation day to the Smrikva Bowl children is always to use their skills and tennis racket passport to travel, experience… see the world… and I strongly believe that each of them will become very rich person not because of the money they might make but because of the experience they will gain. The releationship wealth they will create with their living will be a precious wealth for their well being that nobody will be able to take them away.

We are living today the moment of almost impossibility to travel… but we need to believe that all this will come to an end… and those who love exploring will for sure get the opportunity to do it in the future…

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…

This year me and my family did the ceremony for all the children who passed the selection process but were not able to gather on their Smrikva Bowl…

Olive tree is a symbol of peace in different Mediterranean cultures… and the age of our trees is another important symbol… the symbol of intergenerational responsibility.

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

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

… and you might recall when Mufasa was explaining to Simba that is not easy to be a 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.

Mufasa was trying to teach his son Simba… the importance of observing the nature… of being curious… and he was teaching him the respect the nature and get the understanding of the importance of all different creatures in the Circle of Life…

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.”

A signed tennis ball by our Nobel Prize for Peace friend with the above message is a precious memory held in Smrikve that I love to share with Smrikva kids…

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 to the group I belonged: “Do it!” he reminded me Yoda and his teaching to the young Skywalker: “Do. Or do not!…”

Books are human memory that can help us understand what we see combined with our cummulated personal experience and this is one of the 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 cummulated 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 personal experiences.

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

World Peace Day although celebrated on the same day as SBA day is the day to start thinking of the new research of the Smrikva talents… and with this e-mail, as per tradition, some basic ideas about the selection process for the 26th annual will be shared.

26th Smrikva Bowl, in case pandemic is finished, will be held in Pula-Istria, Croatia, from (19th) 21stnd till 26th of June 2021. Smrikva Bowl gathers young tennis talents from all over the World and next year edition will be dedicated to players born in 2011.

When I think of Smrikva Bowl Heritage and Legacy I always imagine it phyisically 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…

Smrikve is like the place where the seeds of the legends are planted year after year… and Smrikva children stories and families after their departure from Smrikve become like a living fairy tale tree that keeps growing and developing in most different directions year after year…

The intangible part of our theatre is „more than tennis“… whatever that means… and I always wished that it could mean something little bit different for each person that happened to get in touch with Smrikva Bowl story…

Smrikva Bowl is still very young event and is too early to observe the Smrikva Bowl Legacy but I always believed that more then one children who left footprints on our courts will write inspiring stories in most different professional fields.. and I am always happy when I get to know a new SB name achieving the possibility to get their higher education at US Universities thanks to their tennis racket…

Year after year seems more likely that Grand Slam Tournaments will be conquered by Smrikva seeds… they already won 32 junior Grand Slam Titles in singles and doubles… and my dream for the “seeds of the Legends” was always 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 benefit from their tennis and sport experience and find their way in other fields too… because humans need inspiration… we need inspiration not only in sport but in most different fields… there are many challanges today… and even after corona virus is defeated there will be always many new one in the future… and we need divergent thinking to find solutions to challenges that today appear more complicated than what they are… and children are the little genius that could show us the path… being adults those who borrow the future from the children…

I stopped asking myself long time ago of 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 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 edition presentation with application form and other relevant information:

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

Thanks to the Smrikva Bowl families our special Olive Oil and Wine are spread in 95 countries… Our quantities are always limited… the same as limited is the number of players we can invite every year… but I do believe the same I believed for the Smrikva Bowl players that one day the olive oil made from the “seeds of the Legends” trees will be very unique in the whole World…

Over the years Istria kept recording sustainable growth in numbers of travelers visiting us… she did it this year too with all the limitations and impossibilities to travel… and I am grateful to all those who visited us and contributed to that development… “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…

The number of the invited players in 2021 will be for the moment reduced to 64 players (32 girls and 32 boys) and your help will be precious.

If you know a good tennis player born in 2011 that deserves to play Smrikva Bowl or you wish to present your or support a candidacy for the 6th SBTTFW 2021 family gatherings 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 the Smrikve story.

Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikva Bowl-a,

21. je rujna 2020., Dan Ambasadora Smrikva Bowla i vrijeme je da se počne razmišljati o 26.-om procesu kandidature …

Obično je to dan kada slavimo otvaranje nove selekcije Smrikvara, ali kao što većina vas već zna ove godine nismo uspjeli održati 25. izdanje i okupiti generaciju talenata rođenih 2010. godine, a i na današnji dan ne možemo predvidjeti hoće li iduće godine biti sigurnosnih uvjeta za okupljanje generacije talenata rođenih 2011… za 26.-to izdanje Smrikve koje je zakazano za kraj lipnja 2021. godine.

Ovo je vrlo izazovna godina za neke obitelji Smrikva Bowl širom svijeta… neki prijatelji su nas i napustili radi ove nove bolesti… a do danas napredak znansti u pronalasku lijeka nam ne može garantirati da će 2021. biti godina na kakve smo navikli… ostaje nam nada i zbog toga je odlučeno držati se tradicije i predstaviti tradicionalno na Dan Ambasadora Smrikva Bowl-a početak selekcije za sljedeću Smrikvu…

Iako je ove godine bilo ograničenih teniskih aktivnosti … naših preko 2150 SB igrača raširenih u 95 zemalja i dalje nastavljaju pisati legendarnu priču…

US OPEN 2020 imao je u četvrtfinalu 3 igrača Smrikva Bowl-a: Dominic Thiem, Alex De Minaur i Borna Coric … i Dominic je osvojio svoj prvi Grand Slam naslov koji je ujedno i prvi seniorski Grand Slam naslov koji je osvojio bivši igrač Smrikva Bowla …

6282 dana nakon boravka u Smrikvama, Domi je podigao svom prvi Grand Slam trofej … i dogodilo se da je bio u New Yorku … 6282 dana su samo 17 godina, 2 mjeseca i 10 dana … potrebno je više od 5 minuta za pretvoriti san iz djetinjstva u stvarnost … ali Domi je dokaz da se sanjarenje uz marljivi rad i skromnošću dugoročno isplati …

…preko 1120 potpisanih knjiga iz 74 zemlje je i dalje pohranjeno u biblioteci koju stvaraju naši mali posjetitelji od 2009.godine i koja čini nasljeđe Smrikva Bowl-a…

…preko 1650 imena nose posvećene stare masline Smrikva Bowl-a… stvarajući nešto posebno što se još uvijek teško može jasno razaznati…

… 33 Grand Slam titule (uključujući juniorske) su do danas prikupila 26 djeteta Smrikve…

… 45 profesionalnih ATP/WTA titula (1 Grand Slam titula)…

… 48 igrača su dostigla nivo TOP 200 ATP/WTA…

… 24 igrača su u svojoj karijeri dostigli razinu od TOP 100 igrača svijeta na ATP/WTA ljestvicama… i brojne pobjede su ostvarene tijekom posljednjeg desetljeća na svim najprestižnijim turnirima diljem svijeta u kategorijama do 12,14,16 i 18 godina…

Brojna djeca Smrikve su danas fakultetski obrazovana… i već neko vrijeme mi je bila želja saznati koliko je djece Smrikve uspjelo dobiti stipendiju u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama zahvaljujući svojim akademskim i teniskim sposobnostima… i ažurirani broj koji rado djelim je da preko 210 djece Smrikve je do danas to postiglo…

… priča Smrikve je oduvijek nešto više od brojeva kao što je i nešto više od tenisa… i zahvalan sam igračima Smrikve, njihovim obiteljima, trenerima koji nas na najrazličitije načine inspiriraju da nastavimo graditi Smrikvu preko naših granica mašte u našem malom obiteljskom dvorištu…

Postoji puno načina da se iskaže međugeneracijska solidarnost… i želim se zahvaliti djeci Smrikve i njihovim obiteljima koji su se i ove godine odazvali mom pozivu i poslali potpisane predmete kako bi ih mogli pokloniti sudionicima ovogodišnje Smrikve… za mene je taj trenutak prilika da podijelim dio njihovih priča sa djecom koja sanjaju poći njihovim stopama… i tako je svako dijete koje je bilo prisutno u tom trenutku međugeneracijskog slavlja ponijelo sa sobom predmet uspomene i nadam se otkrio jednog novog teniskog prijatelja čijim se uspjesima veseliti …

S osmjehom na licu pratim zahvaljujući Facebooku da su neka djeca Smrikve već počela stvarati obitelji i da svoju ljubav ka tenisu prenose na svoju djecu… tako da se iskreno nadam kroz 8-10 godina vidjeti da neko dijete sjemena Smrikvi zaigra na Smrikvi…

Rado dijelim i vijest da će se 6. Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talent Family Week (SBTTFW) 2021. sa Luca Appinom, održati tijekom 2 tjedna: 24/4-1/5/2021 i 2/5-9/5/2021. Obiteljski tjedan je rođen sa vizijom da se dijeli sa obiteljima i igračima znanje koje im može biti od koristi u dugoročnom razvoju i vjerojatno je jedno od najkvalitetnijih iskustava učenja za igrače i obitelji koje se mogu pružiti u ovoj mladoj dobi talentiranoj djeci.

Sa zadovoljstvom dijelim u nastavku kao svake godine nekoliko priča koje u sebi nosi DNK Smrikva Bowl-a…

Danas je 21.rujan, međunarodni dan mira, poznat i kao dan mira u svijetu… mnogi ljudi ga obilježavaju… a godinama unazad je baš taj dan izabran i kao dan Ambasadora Smrikva Bowl-a… bez civilne zajednice u modernom svijetu nema garancija za mir…a bez mira teško je omogućiti potpuni razvoj talenata… tijekom godine smo vidjeli kako lako poteškoće i izazovi stavljeni pred ljude mogu brzo promijeniti život na koji smo navikli …

Prije nekoliko godina je za sve kandidate Smrikva Bowl-a uvedena obveza poštivanja Smrikva Bowl kodeksa sportskog ponašanja kako na terenu tako i van njega… i drago mi je podijeliti jednu malu spoznaju sa najmlađima… a to je da što više se vježba to postaje prirodnije biti primjerom… i samo nakon brojnih pogrešaka ako želimo iz njih učiti dobijamo priliku za postati bolji… naučiti prihvaćati izazove…

Ja vjerujem u ljepotu učenja i neiskustvo je vrlo moćno i dobro ako se prihvati kao izazov. Moj savjet tijekom orijentacijskog dana djeci Smrikve je da uvijek koriste svoje sposobnosti i putovnicu – „teniski reket“ za putovanja, stavaranje životnih iskusatva… i čvrsto vjerujem da će svako od njih jednog dana postati vrlo bogat. Bogatstvo koje će stvoriti svojim životom bit će dragocjeno bogatstvo za svoje blagostanje koje im nitko neće moći oduzeti.

Danas živimo trenutak u kojem je gotovo nemoguće putovati … ali moramo vjerovati da će svemu tome doći kraj … a oni koji vole istraživanje sigurno će imati priliku to učiniti u budućnosti …

Prije dosta godina započeli smo tradiciju sadnje starije masline tijekom svečanosti imenovanja Ambasadora Smrikva Bowl-a. Prva odabrana maslina je bila starija od najstarijeg čovjeka na zemlji i prenosila je jednu poruku… svih ovih godina tijekom ceremonije, svaki Ambasador stavi grudu zemlje blizu korijena masline i pokloni svoje ime stablu …

Ove godine smo moja obitelj i ja obavili ceremoniju za svu djecu koja su prošla postupak selekcije, ali se nisu uspjela okupiti na svojoj Smrikvi…

Maslina je simbol mira u različitim kulturama… a njene godine simboliziraju međugeneracijsku odgovornost i povezanost.

Crtići mi duži niz godina pomažu u pronalaženju načina komunikacije sa djecom i da se obostrano lakše razumijemo… Kralj Lavova je za današnji dan ponovni lijep izbor da se ponovi priča stare masline… priču koju rado dijelim na svjetski dan mira… i vezana je uz priču kruga života…

Svi se mi rađamo ne znajući puno o životu na zemlji…

Kada Mufasa objašnjava Simbi da nije lako biti kralj… kaže mu kako bi dobar kralj trebao znati da sve oko nas živi u delikatnoj ravnoteži i da s inteligencijom trebamo pokušati razumjeti tu ravnotežu i poštovati je.

Mufasa je pokušavao naučiti svog sina Simbu važnosti promatranja prirode … važnosti znatiželje … i učio ga je poštivanju prirode i razumijevanju važnosti svih različitih stvorenja i njihovog značaja u krugu života…

Jedan od dobitnika Nobelove nagrade za mir, koji je bio gost grupe kojoj sam pripadao, ostavio nam je jedan zapis za uspomenu… jednu poruku u kojoj kaže: “Budućnost je uvijek u manjini. Iako povijest budućnosti je važnija od već proživljene povijesti. Za starije je da se sjećaju prošlosti. Za mlade je da stvaraju svijet budućnosti.

Učinite to! Možete stvoriti svijet bez ratova… Možete stvoriti bolji svijet.”

Potpisana teniska lopta našeg prijatelja i dobitnika Nobelove nagrade za mir sa zapisanom gornjom porukom dragocjena je uspomena koja se čuva u Smrikvama i koju volim dijeliti sa djecom Smrikve …

U meni se kroz godine razvila ideja kako je mir uvijek u nestabilnoj ravnoteži i kroz inteligenciju bi ga trebali razumijeti i naučiti poštivati. Znanje, ljudska znatiželja i želja za usavršavanjem su važni… i svi su oni temelji jedne civilne zajednice.

Dobitnik Nobelove nagrade je u svom komentaru rekao: “Učinite to!” i tako me podsjetio na Yodinu mudrost kada je dijeli sa mladim Džedajem kada mu kaže: “Čini. Ili nemoj činiti”…

Knjige predstavljaju jednu veliku ljudsku memoriju… koje nam mogu pomoći da razumijemo ono što živimo, to je i jedan od razloga početka stvaranja biblioteke Smrikva Bowl nasljeđa… Isto tako vrijedi spomenuti krtost kruga života i lakoće da ljudski nemar velikom brzinom ostane bez nakupljenog saznanja i iskustva starijih generacija. Dovoljno je par generacija nemara da se zaboravi to veliko ljudsko nasljeđe… a još manje od par generacija je dovoljno da se izgube neke od osnovnih vrijednosti civilizacije…

Naučeni smo na brz tehnološki napredak, ali socijalni i društveni napredak čovjeka je sporiji i puno kompleksniji… Ljudi uče tijekom cijelog života i najviše iz osobnog životnog iskustva… Vrijedi ne zaboraviti da civilizacija ili ono što smatramo civilizacijom smo danas samo mi i nitko drugi…

Ovo je jedna važna misao. Ljudski životni vijek je danas oko 80 godina… i ono što nazivamo civilizacijom je nakupljeno iskustvo ljudskog roda do danas, koje naše institucije prenose na mlade naraštaje…

Međunarodni dan mira, slavljen na isti dan Ambasadora Smrikve, je svakako dobar dan da se krene sa potragom talenata… i sa ovim pismom će kao po tradiciji biti otvoren proces okupljanja kandidata za 26. Smrikva Bowl 2021.

26. Smrikva Bowl 2021., u slučaju pobjede nad pandemijom, će se održati u Puli (Istri – Hrvatskoj) od (19.) 21. – 26. lipnja 2021. godine… a sljedeća godina će biti posvećena talentiranim igračima rođenim 2011.godine…

Kada razmišljam o nasljeđu Smrikva Bowl-u… često ga u prvoj misli fizički zamišljam kao teatar… jedan teatar u koji se svake godine uloži puno truda da se pripremi pozornica na kojoj se djeca mogu sastati… I svake godine gledamo okupiti talente iz različitih kulutura svijeta sa različitim snovima….

Mi pripremimo pozornicu i kasnije oni ostaju na dužnosti da svojom upornošću… budu ti koji pišu najrazličitije životne priče…

Smrikve je poput mjesta na kojem se iz godine u godinu sadi sjeme legendi … a dječje priče i životne priče obitelji Smrikve nakon odlaska iz Smrikvi postaju poput živog stabla bajke koje iz godine u godinu raste i razvija se u najrazličitijim smjerovima. ..

Nematerijalni dio našeg kazališta je to nešto “više od tenisa”… što god to značilo… i uvijek sam želio da to može značiti nešto malo drugačije za svaku osobu koja je došla u kontakt sa pričom Smrikva Bowl…

Smrikva Bowl je još uvijek mlad turnir… ali oduvijek vjerujem da će više djece napisati inspirativne priče u najrazličitijim profesijama koje odaberu… u uvijek mi je neizmjerno drago prepoznati novo ime među onima koji su uspjeli nastaviti školovanje u SAD-u zahvaljujući svojoj teniskoj vještini

Kako godine prolaze čini se sve više i više vjerojatno da će više od jednog djeteta Smrikve osvajati velike Grand Slam turnire… već su osvojili 32 juniorskih Grand Slam titula… a da budem iskren moja želja već duže vrijeme nadilazi snove Grand Slam-ova …

Znam da po statistikama samo nekoliko djece Smrikve ima šansu dostići vrh profesionalnog tenisa, ali volim vjerovati da će brojni biti uspješni u drugim profesijama u koje ih život nanese… jer ljudi trebaju inspiraciju … trebamo inspiraciju ne samo u sportu već u najrazličitijim poljima … danas ima mnogo izazova … pa čak i nakon poraza virusa korone u budućnosti će uvijek biti mnogo novih izazova … i trebamo divergentno razmišljanje kako bismo pronašli rješenja za izazove koji se danas čine kompliciranijima od onoga što jesu … a djeca su ti mali geniji koji bi nam mogli pokazati put … jer u biti vrijedi ne zaboraviti da uvijek su odrasli oni koji budućnost posuđuju od djece …

Vjerujem da nikada neću saznati koliko djece igraju Smrikva Bowl zato što bi njihovi roditelji željeli da postanu profesionalni igrači a koliko njih igra jer voli i uživa u teniskoj igri…

… ali ono u što vjerujem je da svaki sport može pomoći djeci u svome rastu i isto tako znam da ljudi koji su odlični u bilo čemu su se potpuno posvetili tome i bilo je potrebno puno truda da bi se postigla izvrsnost kojom zadivljuju i inspiriraju druge ljude…

Još uvijek manji dio ljudi zaluta na Smrikvu, misleći da je to neko „jako važno“ natjecanje… ponekad ne razumijevajući da isključivo rezultat nije glavni ključ Smrikva Bowl-a… i svake godine trebam pomoć Ambasadora Smrikve u objašnjenju kako je Smrikva Bowl nešto više od „važnog“ natjecanja…

Detaljnu prezentaciju s obrascem za prijavu i ostalim uputama glede 26.-og Smrikva Bowl-a 2021.te se od danas nalaze na internet stranici Smrikva Bowl-a.

Smrikva Bowl je od svog početka nešto „više od tenisa“… jedan mali rođendan… i lijepo je ostaviti interpretaciju onoga nešto „više od tenisa“ svakom Ambasadoru Smrikve osobno… njihovim osjećajima jer oni pomažu i ispisuju tu priču…

Danas je ulje i vino Smrikva Bowl-a dotaklo 95 zemlje svijeta zahvaljujući obiteljima Smrikve… naše su količine ograničene… kao što je ograničen broj igrača koje možemo pozvati svake godine… i ja vjerujem da će jednoga dana maslinovo ulje napravljeno sa stabala koja su sadila djeca Smrikve postati jedno od najposebnijih na svijetu…

Zadnjih godina broj posjetitelja Istre uvijek lagano raste i hvala svima koji su nas posjetili i time doprinijeli tom razvoju… i ove godine unatoč velikoj krizi bilo je hrabrih koji su se uputili na put… a “Istria from Smrikve” ostaje jedna poklon knjiga prijateljima… poklon Ambasadorima Smrikva Bowl-a koja je 2009.godine dodala misiji Ambasadora Smrikve zadaću da uz traženje talenata pomognu širiti riječ o Istri kao kulturnoj destinaciji koju vrijedi posjetiti… i nadam se da će ova knjiga jednoga dana biti prepoznata zahvaljujući djeci Smrikva Bowl-a…

Broj primljenih talenata na sljedeću Smrikvu će biti smanjen za sada na 64 igrača (32 dječaka i 32 djevojčica) … i vaša pomoć pri selekciji i preporuke će biti kao i do sada od iznimne važnosti …

Ako poznajete neko talentirano dijete rođeno 2011. godine koje bi zavrijedilo zaigrati na Smrikvi ili se želite i sami kandidirati za 6. SBTTFW 2021. mi pišite…

I za kraj… želim djeci Smrikve da nastave inspirirati primjerom drugu djecu… i nadam se da će netko od njih učiniti stvarnim riječi Nelsona Mandele kada kaže da “Sport ima snagu da mijenja svijet, ima snagu da inspirira i da ujedinjuje ljude kako što malo što drugo može.”

Hvala na vremenu… hvala na posjeti i hvala za dijeljenje s prijateljima priče o Smrikve,

Mio


Cari amici dello Smrikva Bowl e di Smrikve!

È il 21 settembre 2020, la Giornata dell’Ambasciatore Smrikva Bowl, ed è tempo di iniziare a pensare al processo della selezione per i candidati della 26.esima edizione dello Smrikva…

Di solito è il giorno in cui si festeggia l’apertura del nuovo processo di selezione ma come molti di voi già sanno non siamo riusciti a tenere la 25-esima edizione e riunire la generazione di talenti nati nel 2010 e ad oggi non possiamo prevedere se ci saranno le condizioni per accogliere la generazione di talenti nati nel 2011 per la 26-esima edizione che è prevista per la fine di giugno 2021.

Anche se quest’anno l’attività di tennis è stata limitata… i nostri oltre 2150 giocatori dello Smrikva sparsi in 95 paesi continuano a scrivere la storia dei “semi delle leggende” …

US OPEN 2020 ha avuto 3 giocatori Smrikva nei quarti di finale: Dominic Thiem, Alex De Minaur e Borna Coric… e Dominic ha conquistato il suo primo titolo del Grande Slam che è anche il primo titolo del Grande Slam tra i senior conquistato da un ex-giocatore dello Smrikva Bowl …

6282 giorni dopo la sua permanenza a Smrikve, Domi stava alzando il trofeo del Grande Slam … ed è successo a New York … 6282 giorni sono solo 17 anni, 2 mesi e 10 giorni … ci vogliono piu’ di 5 mintui per trasformare un sogno d’infanzia in realtà … ma Domi è una dimostrazione che sognare unito al duro lavoro e rimanendo umili paga a lungo termine …

… oltre 1120 libri firmati provenienti da 74 paesi rimangono custoditi nella libreria dello Smrikva Bowl…

… oltre 1650 nomi sono stati regalati da 16 generazioni dello Smrikva agli alberi d’ulivo dello Smrikva… creando qualcosa di speciale ed ancora difficile da scorgere…

… 33 titoli Grande Slam (inclusi titoli juniores) sono gia’ conquistati da 26 ragazzi che giocarono lo Smrikva Bowl…

… 45 titoli professionali ATP/WTA (1 titolo Grande Slam)…

… 48 giocatori hanno raggiunto la classifica TOP 200 ATP/WTA

… 24 giocatori hanno raggiunto il livello TOP 100 ATP/WTA… e ci sono sempre i nomi dei ragazzi Smrikva tra vincitori dei piu’ prestigiosi eventi under 12,14,16,18 nel Mondo…

Sono in molti che si sono gia’ laureati… ed avevo il desiderio di capire quanti bambini dello Smrikva Bowl hanno ottenuto la borsa di studio per gli Stati Uniti grazie alle loro capacita’ academiche e quelle tennistiche. Il numero che ho il piacere di condividere e’ che sono oltre 210 bambini…

… ma la storia dello Smrikva Bowl e’ molto di piu’ dei numeri e va oltre il tennis… e sono riconoscente ai ragazzi Smrikva che ci inspirano anno dopo anno di andare oltre la nostra imaginazione…

Ci sono molti modi per dimostrare solidarietà intergenerazionale… e vorrei cogliere l’occasione per ringraziare i ragazzi che ancora si ricordano dello Smrikva ed hanno inviato oggetti firmati perche’ potessimo regalargli ad ogni partecipante negli ultimi anni… e per me questo momento, ormai di tradizione, e’ un’occasione per raccontare la loro storia ai ragazzi che stanno sognando di seguire le orme di chi li ha preceduti… ogni ragazzo presente a quel momento di celebrazione intergenerazionale porta con se un oggetto ricordo e scopre un nuovo amico per il quale fare il tifo…

Sono stato contento di notare grazie a Facebook anche che alcuni semi di Smrikva Bowl hanno iniziato a formare le famiglie proprie e continuano ad amare il gioco … Spero in 8-10 anni di vedere anche alcuni bambini figli dei giocatori Smrikva allo Smrikva Bowl …

Ho anche il piacere di condividere che per il 6. Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2021 con Luca Appino faremo due settimane di raduno dal 24. aprile -1. e dal 2. – 9. maggio. La Family Week è nata con la visione di condividere con le famiglie e i giocatori alcuni preziosi suggerimenti che possono essere di aiuto al loro sviluppo a lungo termine ed è probabilmente una delle più grandi esperienze di apprendimento per giocatori e famiglie che possono essere fornite a questa giovane età.

Per chi non sapesse oggi si celebra la giornata internazionale di pace, nota come la giornata mondiale di pace… e diversi anni indietro questa data venne scelta come la data degli Ambasciatori dello Smrikva Bowl…

La giornata degli Ambasciatori dello Smrikva Bowl, pur essendo celebrata lo stesso giorno come la giornata mondiale della pace, e’ dedicate alla civilta’… Senza la societa’ civile nel mondo moderno non ce garanzia per la pace… e senza la pace diventa ancora piu’ ardua la strada per lo sviluppo dei talenti…

Abbiamo visto nell’ultimo anno quanto facilmente le difficoltà e le sfide poste di fronte alle persone possano cambiare la vita a cui siamo abituati …

Alcuni anni fa venne richiesto ai ragazzi e candidati Smrikva l’impegno di osservare il codice di condotta e di Fair Play Smrikva Bowl e vorrei condividere un piccolo segreto con loro… piu’ ti alleni con costanza e passione e piu’ diventa naturale essere l’esempio per gli altri… dopo tanti piccoli errori in campo come anche fuori campo abbiamo la possibilita’ d’imparare e di migliorare… abbracciando la sfida… soprattutto quando siamo costretti a lasciare la nostra zona di comfort …

Io credo nella bellezza dell’apprendimento e l’inesperienza e’ una risorsa preziosa se l’abbracci. Il mio consiglio durante la giornata di orientamento ai bambini dello Smrikva Bowl è sempre quello di usare le loro abilità e il loro passaporto – “la racchetta da tennis” per viaggiare e vedere il mondo, fare le esperienza e credo fermamente che ognuno di loro diventerà molto ricco un giorno. Non per i soldi che potrebbero guadagnare, ma per l’esperienze che vivranno. La ricchezza che creeranno con il proprio vivere e viaggiare sarà una ricchezza preziosa per il loro benessere che nessuno sarà in grado di portarli via.

Stiamo vivendo oggi il momento di quasi impossibilità di viaggiare … ma dobbiamo credere che tutto questo finirà … e chi ama esplorare avrà sicuramente l’opportunità di farlo in futuro …

Tanti anni fa abbiamo iniziato la tradizione di piantare il vecchio ulivo durante la cerimonia di nomina degli Ambasciatori di Smrikva… Il primo ulivo selezionato era piu’ vecchio del uomo vivente sulla terra al momento… e durante la cerimonia, ogni Ambasciatori metteva un gruzolo di terra vicino alla radice dell’albero e regalava il proprio nome allo stesso…

Quest’anno io e la mia famiglia abbiamo fatto la cerimonia per tutti i bambini che hanno superato il processo di selezione ma non sono stati in grado di riunirsi nella loro Smrikva Bowl …

L’ulivo e’ il simbolo di pace in varie culture… ma la sua eta’ e’ il simbolo del collegamento tra le generazioni.

Molte volte ho trovato inspirazione nei cartoni animati… ed Il Re Leone e’ molto bello per la storia dei vecchi ulivi… che riassume in se la storia del cerchio della vita…

Tutti nasciamo senza sapere molto in merito alla vita sulla terra…

Quando Mufasa spiegava a Simba che non era facile essere il Re… gli spiega che il Re dovrebbe sapere che tutto intorno a noi vive in un delicato equilibrio e che con l’intelligenza dovremmo cercare di capirlo e di rispettarlo.

Mufasa stava cercando di insegnare a suo figlio Simba l’importanza di osservare la natura … di essere curioso … e gli stava insegnando il rispetto della natura e la comprensione dell’importanza di tutte le diverse creature nel cerchio della vita…

Il premio nobel per la pace, ospitato da un gruppo di giovani di cui facevo parte, ci lascio un messaggio che mi piace condividere… lui ci scrisse: “Il futuro e’ sempre in minoranza. Pur essendo la storia del futuro piu’ importante della storia del passato. E’ riservato ai vecchi il ricordo del passato. Ed e’ riservato ai giovani la costruzione del mondo di domani.

Fatelo! Potete costruire un mondo senza le guerre. Potete costruire una nuova umanita’.”

Una pallina da tennis firmata dal nostro amico Premio Nobel per la pace con il messaggio sopra è un prezioso ricordo conservato a Smrikve che amo condividere con i bambini Smrikva …

Ho sviluppato nella mia mente l’idea che la pace e’ sempre in un equilibrio instabile e con l’intelligenza dovremmo cercare di capirlo e rispettarlo… Il sapere, la curiosita’ umana e la volonta di imparare sono importanti e sono tutti elementi sui quali vennero costruite le societa’ civili nella storia dell’umanita’…

Quando premio Nobel utilizzo’ la frase “Fatelo!” mi ricordo’ la saggezza di Yoda nel crescere il giovane Jedi spiegandogli che: “Non esiste provare. Fai o non fare” :)

I libri rappresentano un grande patrimonio e ci aiutano a capire quanto percepiamo con l’esperienca cummulata dal vivere quotidiano. Questo e’ uno dei motivi perche’ iniziai’ a costruisce la libreria dello Smrikva Bowl. Data la fragilita’ del cerchio della vita e’ molto facile perdere la conoscenza accumulata.

Siamo abituati alla rapidita’ del progresso tecnologico, ma il progresso sociale e’ piu’ complesso. Gli uomini imparano durante tutta la vita e soprattutto dalla propria esperienza. Siamo noi la civilita’ d’oggi…

La gente vive circa 80 anni… e cio’ che chiamiamo la civilta’ e’ fatto dalla conoscenza cummulata ad oggi, che le instituzioni passano alle future generazioni…

La giornata mondiale della pace, celebrata lo stesso giorno degli Ambasciatori Smrikva, e’ sempre buon giorno per iniziare la raccolta dei talenti dello nuova generazione dello Smrikva Bowl… e con la presente lettera, come per tradizione, partira’ la selezione dei giovani talenti per la 26-esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl che, nel caso la pandemia venga sconfitta, si terrà a Pola (Croazia-Istria) dal (19) 21 giugno fino al 26 giugno 2021. Smrikva Bowl raccoglie talenti a livello mondiale e la prossima edizione sarra’ dedicata ai giocatori nati nel 2011.

Quando penso al patrimonio e ad eredita del nostro torneo me lo imagino sempre fisicamente come un teatro dove ogni anno lavoriamo duramente per preparare il palcoscenico… Ogni anno raduniamo bambini, che arrivano da differenti culture, avendo sogni diversi,…

Noi prepariamo il palcoscenico e dopo sono loro che scrivono le storie di vita piu’ diverse…

La parte intangibile del nostro teatro è quel “più del tennis”… qualunque cosa significhi… ho sempre desiderato che potesse significare qualcosa di leggermente diverso per ogni persona che si è messa in contatto con la storia di Smrikva Bowl…

Smrikva Bowl è ancora un evento molto giovane ed è troppo presto per il suo vero significato, ma ho sempre creduto che più di un bambino che ha lasciato impronte sui nostri campi da tennis scriverà storie stimolanti nei più diversi campi professionali .. e sono sempre felice quando scopro un nuovo nome SB che ha ottenenuto la possibilità di ottenere la propria istruzione superiore presso le università statunitensi grazie alla loro racchetta da tennis …

Anno dopo anno diventa sempre piu’ evidente che piu’ di uno conquisterra’ tornei dello Grande Slam… hanno gia’ totalizzato 32 titoli in singolare e doppio negli eventi junior Grand Slam… e mio sogno per loro va oltre il sogno dei Grande Slam…

So che secondo le statistiche solo pochi ragazzi dello Smrikva Bowl diventeranno i migliori giocatori di tennis professionisti, ma voglio credere che trarranno beneficio dalla loro esperienza nel tennis e nello sport e troveranno la loro strada anche in altri campi … perché gli umani hanno bisogno di ispirazione. .. abbiamo bisogno di ispirazione non solo nello sport ma in campi più diversi … ci sono molte sfide oggi … e anche dopo la sconfitta del corona virus ce ne saranno sempre molte nuove in futuro da affrontare … e abbiamo bisogno di un pensiero divergente per trovare soluzioni a sfide che oggi appaiono più complicate di quello che sono … e bambini sono i piccoli geni che potrebbe indicarci la strada … dobbiamo tenere in mente che sono gli adulti coloro che prendono in prestito il futuro dai bambini …

Ho smesso di chiedermi molto tempo fa quanti bambini giocano a Smrikva Bowl stanno giocando a tennis perché i loro genitori vorrebbero che diventassero giocatori di tennis professionisti e quanti di loro ci giocano perché gli piace il gioco. Quello che so è che lo sport può aiutare i bambini nella loro crescita e so anche che le persone che diventano brave in qualsiasi campo hanno bisogno di molto tempo per raggiungere e padroneggiare l’eccellenza.

Ancora capita che qualcuno arrivi a Smrikve pensando che Smrikva Bowl sia un „importante“ competizione… senza capire che il mero risultato non e’ la chiave dello Smrikva Bowl… ed ho sempre il constante bisogno degli Ambasciatori Smrikva nel aiutarmi a spiegare che Smrikva Bowl e’ qualcosa di diverso e non una „importante“ competizione.

Da oggi sul sito dello Smrikva Bowl potete aprire presentazione PDF dell’edizione di quest’anno 26. Smrikva Bowl 2021 con il formulario d’iscrizione ed altre informazioni rilevanti relative alla prossima edizione.

Smrikva Bowl e’ stato sempre qualcosa in “più del tennis”… ma mi piace lasciarlo inspiegato e che siano gli Ambasciatori ed amici ad interpretarlo con le proprie sensazioni perche’ sono loro alla fine quelli che ogni giorno scrivono la storia dello Smrikva Bowl…

L’olio ed il vino legato ai ragazzi Smrikva e’ oggi sparso in 95 paesi del mondo… le nostre quantita’ sono molto limitate… come sono limitati i posti dei ragazzi che possiamo invitare ogni anno… ma credo lo stesso che credevo per i giocatori di Smrikva Bowl che un giorno l’olio d’oliva prodotto dagli alberi “semi delle leggende” sarà davvero unico al mondo …

Negli anni Istria continua a registrare leggera crescita di visitatori viaggiatori e sono grato a tutti quelli che ci hanno visitato ed hanno contribuito a questa crescita… “Istria from Smrikve” e’ un regalo agli amici… e questo regalo agli Ambasciatori dello Smrikva Bowl aggiunge alla loro missione di Ambasciatori, che ci aiutano nella ricerca dei talenti nei loro paesi, il compito di diffondere la voce sull’Istria come destinazione che merita di essere visitata… ed il mio sogno e’ che un giorno l’eredita’ dello “Istria from Smrikve” possa essere riconsciuta anche grazie ai semi dello Smrikva Bowl…

Il numero dei candidati accettati nel 2021 sarra’ al momento ridotta a 64 ragazzi (32 ragazzi e 32 ragazze) ed il vostro aiuto sarra’ come sempre molto apprezzato.

Se conoscete ragazzi di talento del 2011 che meriterebbe di partecipare o volete candidarvi per la quinta edizione di SBTTFW 2021 scrivetemi…

… e per chiudere questa lunga presentazione… dato che si celebra nella giornata mondiale della pace auguro ai ragazzi Smrikva di continuare ad inspirare con l’esempio… ed auguro che qualcuno renda reali le parole di Nelson Mandela quando disse: “Lo sport ha la forza di cambiare il mondo, ha la forza di ispirare e la forza di unire la gente come poche altre cose”

Grazie per il tuo tempo, per averci visitato e per la condivisione con gli amici dalla storia di Smrikve.

A big day for Dominic Thiem... time to celebrate the first senior Smrikva Bowl Grand Slam signed by Domi... also a big day for the Smrikva Bowl story...

On the picture below it was 6th July 2003… it was the day of Dominic Thiem & George Morgan Smrikva Bowl boys finals…

Today is 14th of September 2020… 6282 days after his stay in Smrikve, Domi is lifting the Grand Slam trophy… and it happen to be in New York… the Wilson ball on the ground come from New York… I bought it back in 1998 during the US OPEN and since 1999 till 2009 all the winners kept signing this ball… and today is framed in the US OPEN room at our heritage SMRIKVE LOUNGE Villa …

6282 days is just 17 years, 2 months and 10 days… it does not take 5 mintues to turn a childhood dream into reality… but Domi is a proving that dreaming with hard work and staying humble pays off in the long run…

Since 2005, when we bottled the first Smrikve Malmsey and gave it to the families visiting us for Smrikva Bowl, I keep repeating that one day that bottles will be very prestige… but it takes time..

Although at the time Domi played there were still no bottles for the families to bring them home but what I like is that after Domi took this Grand Slam he opened the Smrikva Bowl road on senior Grand Slams I am sure there will be other Smrikva seeds to follow Domi and will continue to be inspired by his example…

Yesterday the finals was an amazing seesaw… Zverev played amazing two sets at the beginning… but Domi never thought to give up… and find the way to swing the momentum… till the last point was played made the heartbeat high… and he crowned himeself the Champion!

I still have vivid memories of George Morgan and Dominic Thiem finals… I remember kindness of Domi’s grandfather Mr Josef Karl Müllner and his wife… and I do remember well Domi’s two hands backhand…
It is true… at the time Domi played two hands backhand…

George was taller and was attacking more in that match like Zverev in first two sets in New York yesterday… but Domi had patience and had the tactic that helped him to earn more points that day… he was using more high balls and defending but soon Domi will start to change and evolve his game… and will also change his backhand…

Mr. Bresnik will change his two hands backhand into one hand and will make his game very aggressive… this story over the years is turning into a legend already…

Domi’s road to the Smrikva Bowl title was the following: 1st round he had bye, 2nd round he played with Laslo Djere (Srb), 3rd round with Guglielmo Bonapace (Ita), quarterfinals with Luka Duh (Slo), semifinals with Dino Mesin (Cro) and the finals with George Morgan (UK)…

I do remember some years ago sitting with Djere Laslo’s father at ATP UMAG and recalling Djere’s Smrikva Bowl time… we were having a nice talk… Djere’s father was a wonderful person… and I remember when he told me with whom the first year Djere played his second match on Smrikva Bowl and he said that smiling… with certain „Dominic Thiem“… I love the way he smiled when he told me that… we both smiled… few years after playing with Domi, Djere will play the Smrikva Bowl finals in 2005…

Several years later, when, brothers Ivan Sabanov and Matej Sabanov , met Domi at Futures events played in Istria (famous „Istarska Rivijera“), we often talk about past SB players because Ivan and Matej come in Smrikve are like at their second home… and they told me already many years ago „you know Mimi how powerful Domi’s strokes are“… they were amazed with his forehand at the time… and that was the first time I learned Domi’s nickname „Dominator“… I loved the way brothers Ivan and Matej were talking about Domi because all that was new to me because I did not see Dominic playing after Smrikva Bowl untill he started to play on TV…

Another link from the Domi’s junior time and voice about his development were given to me almost each summer by Dario Bitorajac , father of Romy Bitorajac , another Smrikva Bowl seed, who was helping in developing Gunter Bresnik Academy in Vienna and had possibilities to spend some time with Domi… and I enjoyed listening to Dario’s respect for Domi and his greatnes, working ethic… the way he was evolving and I was never tired to hear some new hints from Dario…

Traditional Smrikva Bowl winners prize was also at the time the mountain bike as you can see on the picture… and I was so happy when Domi’s grandfather, after he won Mercedes car in Stuttgart, missing to win that BMW on Karin’s birthay in Munich, told me that Domi still keeps his bike in the garage… I was happy to hear that :)

Another prize at the time we had on Smrikva Bowl were the flight tickets for the USA for the players… it is the story about Smrikva Bowl and „Little Mo“ friendship…

Back in 2002 me and Carol Weyman founded „Little Mo“/Smrikva Bowl… and we created this event with aim to unite the finalist of Smrikva Bowl with finalist of „Little Mo“ Nationals… and we created this very inspiring experience for children… this was 18 years ago and at the time the junior tennis world was different compared to the one we have today… and to cross the ocean at age of 9 years it was almost like going to the Moon :)…

… and I was donating airplane tickets for the children who made it to go in the USA… and a friend from Milan, Montanelli Claudio , father of Smrikva Bowl player Sara Montanelli , wished to sponsor somehow that year Smrikva Bowl… he fall in love with Smrikva Bowl idea… and immediately I did not know what Claudio could do for us… Claudio has many talents and he is the author of Smrikva Bowl anthem „I COLORI DEL MONDO“… he was also the producer of the famous Smrikva Bowl brochures, many generations might still have them at home… and at the time he kept asking me that he would like to help me somehow with Smrikva… and I said… ok Claudio… your support will go for two tickets and this will be amazing help to me… so Claudio supported making real this dream at the time and helped me to allow in October 2003 Dominic to go with his father Wolfgang Thiem and the rest of the European team to Texas…

The 2nd “Little Mo”/ Smrikva Bowl was played at the Austin Tennis Academy (Texas) on Friday, October 24th 2003… there were no Facebook at the time… and the news were not in real time like today… but I remember being in Florence that week and attending the news… it was the father of Silvia Njiric who informed me first that the Europeans won by defeating the United States 6-2.

The players representing the United States were: Emmett Eggert , Robert Stineman, Karen Forman and Katie Klyczek while the players representing Europe were the finalists of the 8th Smrikva Bowl 2003: Jennifer Jenny Ren, Silvia Njiric, Dominic Thiem and George Morgan.

I smiled when years after that experience I saw Dominic Thiem playing for the European team against the rest of the World in Laver’s Cup… this totally reminded me his „Little Mo“/Smrikva Bowl experience… and I wrote to Karin Thiem … how Domi in the Laver Cup remind me his first time playing for Europe and she said in the family they also thought the same :)…

I had pleasure to see Domi’s grandfather, Mr Josef K. Muellner again, back in 2009, when Domi’s brother Moritz Thiem come to play Smrikva Bowl … his grandfather brought us at the time 3 bottles of wine (Seher 2006, 2007 & Heinzl Gettinger 2008) that are still in Smrikva Bowl library… I remember he mentioned at the time that this wine was appreciated also by the Austrian President… it is a precious gifts that should be open in occasions like this but I wish to open it once the whole family Thiem Muellner return to Smrikve…

I enjoyed exchanged thoughts with Domi’s grandfather during his growth… and I like to remember when Mr. Josef wrote to me saying many years ago who knows how far these kids will develop… George, Domi… in the juniors they kept playing well… Orange Bowl, Eddie Herr, Junior Grand Slams…

There is also one moment that I like to recall… especially recently in our Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week classes with my friend & coach Luca Appino … for many years I’ve been teaching my students the invisible part in tennis… several of those children are following Domi’s footprints and several got scholarship in the USA… and I remember sharing with Mr Josef a part of the content after I saw one performance of Domi in TV because I noticed that one particular book might be of interest and help to Domi… Miomir Kecmanovic ‘s auntie Tanja Pavlov for sure remember my class with Miso years ago and she likes to call that teaching „klackalica“ – seesaw… we’ve seen it in this morning Domi’s match…

It might be months or two after sharing that hint with Domi’s grandfather that Domi won his first career ATP World Tour title in Nice (France) defeating Nick Kyrgios, Ernests Gulbis and John Isner on his path to the finals, and winning a close three-setter against Leonardo Mayer. I still remember watching this match in our TRS Apartment with John Brady , Patrick Brady and Connor Brady… they were friends with Leonardo Mayer’s coach and were in Smrikve for visit… they also loved Dominic being both of them Smrikva seeds… and we enjoyed together that magic moment…

I was happy for Domi’s first ATP title because it was the first ATP Smrikva child to get a professional ATP 250 title…

… and after sending my greetings to Mr Josef… I was very pleased and surprised that Domi’s grandfather wrote to me „Perhaps the book you proposed was the initiator“…

Very soon he won 2015 Croatia Open Umag and made happy my Tara by signing her a cap :)… and week after he won also Swiss Open Gstaad…

I would like to recall another special moment which made me very happy… the moment when Domi inspired more than once another Smrikva Bowl seed…

A bit more than two years ago Miomir Kecmanovic was for long time #1 ITF ranked player and honored to be invited to sparing at ATP London Finals… this honor goes by tradition to the #1 ranked junior…

When I heard from Miro Hrvatin that Miso will go to London… I felt I need to share this news with Karin and Chris…

I knew about Miso’s childhood desire to meet Roger Federer because since Miso was 8 years old he kept returning every summer to Smrikve to nurture his talent with us until IMG Nick Bollettieri invited him to live and develop in Florida…

… and at the time before going to London I knew Roger will be there but I knew also Domi will be there… and I sent couple of messages… one to team8 Smrikva Bowl friend Chris Jackman… and another to Domi’s mom Karin Thiem…

ATP London Finals was to start and I was so pleased when I got the message from Chris that right now Miso is on the court with Roger… my message to Karin was sent to let her know that Miso will be in London although Karin is not involved in Domi’s schedule but I wished to let her know about this talented kid… as Little Prince likes to say „you never know“… and this is the statement I also believe in…

Since Miso returned the first summer to train in Smrikve I introduced him to my friend and coach Miro Hrvatin and he is nurturing Miso’s talent and this fairy tale story continues till today… and that day when Miro sent me the pictures of Miso and Thiem together on the court again the smile stamped on my face :)…

Soon after that meeting Miomir Kecmanovic will do with Dominic Thiem, Moritz Thiem and his team the pre-season and will be strongly inspired by Domi’s working ethic… that moment for sure impacted that young boy…

And yesterday… this younger Smrikva Bowl seed, in Domi’s native country Austria, won his first ATP title… last year Kitzbuhel title went to Domi and this year to Miso…

For many years Domi and his brother Moritz thanks to their family keep sending gifts to Smrikva Bowl seeds for our „Lucky Draw“… and I believe today each kid who brought home a gift from Smrikva Bowl „Lucky Draw“ might feel something special…

Today… is a bit more than five years from Domi’s first ATP title & his #3 ranking in the World it is time for Domi to celebrate his first GRAND SLAM title in NEW YORK… and as a song say… if you can make it there Domi you can make it anywhere!!! In Paris will be no difference…

Super happy for Domi and the whole family Thiem-Muellner… and for all Smrikva seeds for the opening of the new path of the Senior Grand Slam titles for Smrikva Bowl players!!!

Grande Domi!

Today we collected grapes and started the 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 - Smrikve Malvazija wine production

We just collected grapes and started 2021 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 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 edition…

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

Smrikve Malvazija is thanks to the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors spread in 95 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 2020 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.

On Istria from Smrikve you can learn much more…

To learn more about Istrian gastronomy and wine please visit the E-book about Istrian cultural heritage on www.smrikve.com/istria/ named “Istria from Smrikve” or join Discover Istria from Smrikve group on Linked In.

The grapes are very nice this year… and the wine should be extraordinary again…

From today… the most important part of wine transformation process starts ;)… and at the beginning of November we will make the first quality level tasting check :)…
