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

27th Smrikva Bowl 2022 generation will be selected this week… 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 98 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 27th Smrikva Bowl 2022 generation players who will help this year with their visit to Smrikve to build another piece of the Smrikva Bowl World library :)

Smrikve c Code - brothers in arms

Over 11 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…

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

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 250+ players got scholarship to study play tennis in the US…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Greetings letter from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2022

Dear Smrikve friends,

It is greetings time and time to prepare for another round around the Sun…

Dreams are the source of our well being and we all need dreams… there is a say that life ends when you stop dreaming and that hope ends when you stop believing… love & friendship ends when you stop caring and sharing…

If you can see giving as joy, helping others as satisfying work, love as the most powerful force in life, brain as the world’s most incredible computer, „I can“ as the two most power-filled words, faith as an asset, smile as the most beautiful attire, integrity as the most prized possession, enthusiasm as the most contagious spirit then there will be people empowered by your dreams…

I wish you to continue to follow your dreams… and I wish we can continue to nurture our Smrikve dream… inspiration is that invisible force we all need in order to create another good year…

27th Smrikva Bowl 2022 edition is a new hope, those who visit us in Smrikve are always inspiration to me… and we keep scouting the tennis borders of tomorrow.

I keep following the new pages of our fairy tales written by the Smrikva Bowl seeds: 32 players reached Top 100 ATP/WTA ranking & 240+ players received scholarships to study in the USA. Our Smrikva is spread into 98 countries and six continents… making United People dream alive… I can only cheer with „iUPiii“!!!…

I love cartoons and they help me to communicate with children… I wish to share Master Oogway and his Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom story as my greetings gift…

Oogway is a an elderly tortoise, highly venerated for his wisdom, knowledge, and experience… known as the greatest kung fu master in history, with no other reputation surpassing his. Oogway dedicated his life to preserving the art of kung fu as a force for good and passed on his teachings to his students.

In Smrikve we cherish olive trees and over 1720 Smrikva Bowl children have their olive tree growing in Smrikve. The story I am sharing today is about Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom and I remember I read long time ago about Sacred Juniper Trees growing in Tibet…

I will start the story recalling the moment when Oogway catched Po with mouth full of peaches: „I see you have found the Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom!“… Po was genuinely embarrassed: „Oh! Is that what this is? I am so sorry. I thought it was just a regular peach tree.“

In Chinese culture the peach symbolizes longevity and immortality… it is a blessed fruit… and it has a special meaning for Master Oogway — it is a symbol of renewal and represent his home. Its wood is said to ward off evil and its petals are said to have magical properties. Oogway carved his staff from the wood of his tree and every morning he sprinkled a handful of petals in the Moon Pool in the Jade Pool. His Peach Tree grew from the seed and it is a sacred place for him, the place he comes to meditate and to be one with the universe.

The Legend says that Oogway journeyed from his home in the Galapagos Islands and traveled the world, visiting every country until his feet led him to China. When he stood on the little hill that overlooks what would become known as the Valley of Peace, he knew that he had found the place he would call home for the rest of his life. To commemorate the moment he planted the seed of a peach, his preferred tree.

Oogway shared many lessons under his tree… and just a few I would like to share today…

The day Po eat peaches from Oogway’s tree was a very difficult day for Po… Po was feeling very upset over the rejection and disapproval of Shifu and the Furious Five. Oogway understood his impulse to eat when he was upset, but was concerned about the lack of faith Po showed in himself that day.

Oogway knew that the most destructive habit is to worry… he knew that the greatest loss one can have is loss of self-respect… he also knew that the greatest problem to overcome is fear and that the most crippling failure disease is excuse… he knew that the most dangerous acts are gossip… and the worst thing to be without is hope… he knew also that the deadliest weapon is the tongue… and the worthless emotion is self-pity… and if you recall this part of the cartoon you can find out that all the above happened to Po that day…

To give a friendly hand to Po, Oogway used a mindfulness saying of encouragement… he suggested to Po to forget the past, not to worry about the future, and to live in the present which is a gift. After sharing this lesson he allowed Po to eat another peach by hitting the trunk and causing one to fall into his hand.

Oogway choose Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom to ascend to the Spirit Realm via blossoms from the tree… he was practicing tai chi underneath the tree, when Shifu informed him of Tai Lung’s escape from prison. Shifu was visibly scared and Oogway used that moment to share hi last teaching. He told Shifu that he must let go of the illusion of control and instead nurture and believe in Po’s abilities in order for him to stop Tai Lung… he hinted Shifu what he needs to do… he asked Shifu to nurture and believe in Po… and asked him to promise that he will do it… after sharing his lesson Oogway handed Shifu his staff and ascended into the Spirit Realm via cloud of peach blossoms.

I hope you enjoyed the story and are ready for another round around the Sun :)… ready to believe and nurture people around you…

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Vrijeme je čestitanja, vrijeme želja i vrijeme je da se pripremimo za još jedan krug oko sunca…

Snovi su izvor našeg blagostanja i svima nam trebaju… kaže se da život prestaje kada prestanemo sanjati i da nada prestaje kada prestanemo vjerovati… isto tako ljubav i prijateljstvo prestaju kada se prestanemo posvećivati i kada prestanemo dijeliti…

Onaj tko može vidjeti davanje kao radost, pomaganje drugima kao zadovoljstvo, ljubav kao moćnu snagu života, mozak kao najposebnije računalo na svijetu, „ja mogu“ kao dvije najsnažnije riječi, vjeru kao bogatstvo, osmijeh kao najljepšu odjeću, poštenje kao najcjenjeniji imetak, entuzijazam kao najzaraznije raspoloženje tada će postojati u vašem krugu života brojni ljudi osnaženi vašim snovima…

Želim da nastavite slijediti svoje snove… kao što želim da mi nastavimo njegovati Smrikve… a inspiracija je ta nevidljiva sila koja nam je svima potrebna da stvorimo još jednu dobru godinu…

27. izdanje Smrikva Bowl-a 2022. je jedna nova nada, a oni koji nas posjete su oduvijek naša inspiracija… a mi svakoga dana nastavljamo s istraživanjima teniskih granica sutrašnjice.

Stalno pratim nove stranice naše bajke koje ispisuju djeca Smrikva Bowl-a: 32 igrača i igračica su probila granicu od Top 100 ATP/WTA a preko 240 igrača i igračica je dobilo stipendije za studiranje u SAD-u. Naša Smrikva je danas rasprostranjena u 98 zemalja i šest kontinenata… čineći živim san o Ujedninjenim ljudima… uz osmijeh i krik radosti „iUPiii“!!!…

Volim crtiće, oni mi pomažu u komunikaciji s djecom… i rado dijelim jednu priču iz Kung Fu Pande o učitelju Oogwayu i njegovom Svetom drvetu breskve nebeske mudrosti…

Učitelj Oogway je starija mudra kornjača, vrlo cijenjena radi svog znanja i iskustva… poznat je kao najveći meštar kung fua u povijesti, i ničija reputacija nije još uvijek nadmašila njegovu. Oogway je svoj život posvetio očuvanju kung fua kao sile dobra i prenio je svoja učenja svojim učenicima.

U Smrikvama njegujemo masline i više od 1720 Smrikva Bowl djece ima svoje stablo masline. Priča koju danas dijelim je o Svetoj breskvi nebeske mudrosti a sjećam se da sam davno čitao i o Svetim smrikvama koje rastu u Tibetu…

Započet ću priču prisjećajući se trenutka kada je Oogway iznenadio Poa s ustima punim breskvi i kroz smijeh rekao: „Vidim da si pronašao Svetu breskvu nebeske mudrosti!“… Po se iskreno posramio: „Oh! Šta to je stvarno to? Baš mi je žao. Mislio sam da je to samo obična breskva.”

U kineskoj kulturi breskva simbolizira dugovječnost i besmrtnost… to je blagoslovljeno voće… i za majstora Oogwaya ima posebno značenje — simbol je obnove i predstavlja njegov dom. Priča se da njegovo drvo tjera zlo, a latice imaju magična svojstva. Oogway je izrezbario svoj štap od drveta koristeći granu svog stabla i svako jutro je posipao šaku latica po Mjesečevom bazenu u palači Jade. Njegovo drvo breskve izraslo je iz sjemenke i to je za njega sveto mjesto, mjesto na koje dolazi meditirati i biti jedno sa svemirom.

Legenda kaže da je Oogway otputovao jako davno iz svog doma na otočju Galapagos i proputovao svijet, posjećujući sve zemlje dok ga noge nisu dovele u Kinu. Kad je stajao na brežuljku s kojeg se pruža pogled na ono što će postati poznato kao Dolina mira, znao je da je pronašao mjesto koje će zvati domom do kraja života. U znak sjećanja na taj trenutak zasadio je sjemenku breskve, svog omiljenog stabla.

Oogway je pod svojim stablom dijelio mnoge mudrosti… a par tih priča bi rado podijelio danas…

Dan kada je Po pojeo breskve sa Oogwayeva stabla bio je vrlo mučan dan za Poa… Po se osjećao uzrujano zbog odbijanja i neodobravanja Shifua i Strašne petorke. Oogway je razumio njegov poriv da jede kad je uzrujan, ali je bio zabrinut zbog nedostatka vjere koju je Po pokazao u sebe toga dana.

Oogway je znao da je briga razorna navika… znao je da je najveći gubitak koji čovjek može imati gubitak samopoštovanja… također je znao da je najveći problem koji treba prevladati strah i da je isprika put ka neuspjehu… znao je da je najopasnija radnja ogovaranje… a najgore bivanje je bivanje bez nade… znao je i da je najsmrtonosnije oružje jezik… a bezvrijedna emocija samosažaljenje… a ako se prisjetite ovog dijela crtića možete se prisjetiti da se sve navedeno dogodilo Pou toga dana…

Kako bi pružio prijateljsku ruku Pou, Oogway je upotrijebio nekoliko riječi ohrabrenja… rekao je Pou da zaboravi prošlost, da ne brine o budućnosti i da živi u sadašnjosti koja je za sve nas dar. Nakon što je podijelio ovu mudrost pune svijesti, dopustio je Pou da pojede još jednu breskvu udarivši o deblo i uzrokujući da mu jedna padne baš u ruku.

Oogway je odabrao mjesto Svetog drveta breskve nebeske mudrosti da se uzdigne u carstvo duša nošen laticama svoga stabla… vježbao je tai chi podno krošnje stabla, kada ga je Shifu obavijestio o Tai Langovom bijegu iz zatvora. Shifu je bio vidno uplašen i Oogway je iskoristio taj trenutak da podijeli zadnje učenje. Rekao je Shifu da mora otpustiti iluziju kontrole i umjesto toga njegovati i vjerovati u Poove sposobnosti kako bi mu pomogao da zaustavi Tai Lunga… nagovijestio je Shifu što treba učiniti… tražio je od Shifua da njeguje i vjeruje u Poa… i zamolio ga da mu obeća da će to učiniti… nakon što je podijelio svoje zadnje mudre riječi, Oogway je predao Shifuu svoj štap i popeo se u nebo nošen laticama svoje breskve.

Nadam se da ste uživali u ovih par minuta priča i da ste spremni za još jedan krug oko Sunca :)… spremni vjerovati i njegovati ljude oko sebe…

Cari amici di Smrikve,

È arrivato il tempo degli auguri ed il momento di prepararsi per un altro giro intorno al Sole…

I sogni sono la fonte del nostro benessere e tutti abbiamo bisogno di sognare… si dice che la vita finisce quando uno smette di sognare e che la speranza finisce quando uno smette di credere… l’amore e l’amicizia quando smetti di interessarti e di condividere…

Se riesci a vedere il dare come gioia, aiutare gli altri come soddisfazione, l’amore come la forza più potente della vita, il cervello come il computer più incredibile del mondo, “io posso” come le due parole piene di potere, credere come una risorsa, sorriso come l’abbigliamento più bello, l’onesta’ come il bene più prezioso, l’entusiasmo come lo spirito più contagioso, allora ci saranno tante persone ad unirsi ai tuoi sogni…

Vi auguro di continuare a seguire i propri sogni… e mi auguro che continueremo a coltivare il nostro sogno a Smrikve… l’ispirazione è quella forza invisibile di cui tutti abbiamo bisogno per creare un altro buon anno…

La 27a edizione di Smrikva Bowl 2022 è una nuova speranza, coloro che ci visitano sono sempre fonte di ispirazione per me… e continuiamo da anni ad esplorare le frontiere del tennis di domani.

Continuo a seguire a livello giornaliero le nuove pagine della favola scritta dai semi della Smrikva Bowl: 32 giocatori hanno raggiunto la Top 100 della classifica ATP/WTA e 240+ giocatori hanno ricevuto borse di studio per studiare negli Stati Uniti. La storia dei ragazzi è sparsa in 98 paesi e sei continenti… facendo vivo il sogno di gente unita (United People)… e non posso che esultare con un “iUPiii”!!!…

Amo ancora i cartoni animati che mi aiutano nella comunicazione con i bambini… e mi piacerebbe condividere la storia del Maestro Oogway e del suo Sacro albero di Pesco della Saggezza Celeste…

Oogway è un’anziana tartaruga, venerata per la sua saggezza, conoscenza ed esperienza… e’ conosciuto come il più grande maestro di kung fu della storia. Oogway ha dedicato la sua vita a preservare l’arte del kung fu come forza per il bene e ha trasmesso i suoi insegnamenti ai suoi allievi.

A Smrikve teniamo a cuore i nostri ulivi ed oltre 1720 bambini della Smrikva Bowl hanno il loro ulivo a Smrikve. La storia che sto condividendo oggi riguarda il Sacro Pesco della Saggezza Celeste di Oogway e ricordo di aver letto tempo fa dei Sacri alberi di Ginepro che crescono in Tibet…

Inizierò la storia ricordando il momento in cui Oogway trovo’ Po con la bocca piena di pesche… e li disse: “Vedo che hai trovato il Sacro Pesco della Sapienza Celeste!” … Po era sinceramente imbarazzato: “Oh! È questo che è? Mi dispiace così tanto. Pensavo fosse solo un normale albero di pesco.”

Nella cultura cinese la pesca simboleggia la longevità e l’immortalità… è un frutto benedetto… e ha un significato speciale per il Maestro Oogway – è un simbolo di rinnovamento e rappresenta la sua casa. Si dice che il suo legno scaccia il male e che i suoi petali abbiano proprietà magiche. Oogway intagliò il suo bastone dal legno del suo albero e ogni mattina metteva una manciata di petali nella Piscina Lunare nel Palazzo di Giada. Il suo albero di pesco è cresciuto dal seme ed è un luogo sacro per lui, il luogo in cui viene a meditare e ad essere uno con l’universo.

La leggenda narra che Oogway partì dalla sua casa nelle Isole Galapagos e viaggiò per il mondo, visitando ogni paese finché i suoi piedi non lo portarono in Cina. Quando si trovava sulla piccola collina che domina quella che sarebbe diventata nota come la Valle della Pace, sapeva di aver trovato il luogo che avrebbe chiamato casa per il resto della sua vita. Per commemorare il momento piantò il seme di una pesca, il suo albero preferito.

Oogway ha condiviso molte lezioni sotto il suo albero… ed alcune vorrei condividere oggi…
Il giorno in cui Po ha mangiato le pesche dell’albero di Oogway è stato un giorno molto difficile per Po… Po si sentiva molto turbato per il rifiuto e la disapprovazione di Shifu e dei Cinque Furiosi. Oogway capì il suo impulso a mangiare quando era arrabbiato, ma era preoccupato per la mancanza di fiducia che Po aveva mostrato in se stesso quel giorno.

Oogway sapeva che l’abitudine più distruttiva è preoccuparsi… sapeva che la più grande perdita che si può avere è la perdita del rispetto per sé stessi… sapeva anche che il problema più grande da superare è la paura e che ricerca delle scuse e’ la via verso il fallimento… sapeva che gli atti più pericolosi sono i pettegolezzi… e fare a meno della speranza e’ la cosa peggiore… sapeva anche che l’arma più letale è la lingua… e l’emozione meno valorosa è l’autocommiserazione… e se vi ricordate quella giornata di Po potete scoprire che tutto quanto sopra è successo a Po quel giorno…

Per dare una mano a Po, Oogway ha suggerito a Po di dimenticare il passato, di non preoccuparsi del futuro, e di vivere nel presente che è un dono. Dopo aver condiviso questa lezione di mindfulnes, permise a Po di mangiare un’altra pesca colpendo il tronco e facendone cadere una in mano.

Oogway scelse il Sacro Pesco della Saggezza Celeste per ascendere al Regno dello Spirito tramite i pettali del suo albero… stava praticando il tai chi sotto l’albero, quando Shifu lo informò della fuga di Tai Lung dalla prigione. Shifu era visibilmente spaventato e Oogway ha usato quel momento per condividere il suo ultimo insegnamento. Ha detto a Shifu che doveva lasciar andare l’illusione del controllo e invece nutrire la propria fiducia nelle capacità di Po per poter fermare Tai Lung… ha suggerito a Shifu cosa doveva fare… ha chiesto a Shifu di credere in Po… e di promettere che crederà in Po… dopo aver condiviso la sua lezione, Oogway ha consegnato a Shifu il suo bastone ed è asceso nel Regno dello Spirito attraverso una nuvola di fiori di pesco.

Spero si e’ pronti per un altro giro intorno al Sole :)… pronti a credere e coltivare le persone che ci stanno intorno…

30/10/21

We collected 2021 olives and made olive oil that will end up in bottles for the 27th Smrikva Bowl 2022 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 3 collection days in Smrikve which started on 28th of October, continued on 29th and 30th…

… over the five collection days over 20 family members and friends helped us and we had each beautiful olive collection day…

It is the story of the 2022 Smrikva Bowl olive oil production :)…

In Smrikve is considered 2022 production because the next year every new Smrikva Bowl Ambassador will receive as per tradition a memory bottle of it during the Ambassador’s nomination ceremony.

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

… and the team we had is always great team…

we completed the collecting this year at the LOUNGE

and the day before we did it in Fazana and Valbandon and in Smrikve courtyard… while the first day we did it nearby the Smrikve vineyards and the Istria from Smrikve monument…

Last year was by far our record year… this year we had few very cold weeks when the olives wake up and very high temperature when they were blossoming… it is not our record year in quantities but we had on our first harvest the record year in % of the olive oil produced on the amount of the quantity… over 110 trees reached important dimensions… and there are many young trees still developing… LOUNGE trees were good this year with almost 35 kg per tree but far away from the last year record which was 85 kg per tree…

Our Legendary olive trees hold names of over 1730 players coming from 98 countries and all the continents are for another great tennis year more special…

This is part of our last day collection dream team…

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…

… so far 31 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA… 52 reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA… holding 56 professional ATP/WTA titles (1 Grand Slam title)… 28 children holds a total of 36 Grand Slam titles and over 240+ 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:

… it is the story of the most prestige olive oil in the World with very unique story… and the donnation value as of today is set on 29 Euro for 200 ml collection bottle… 29 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 – October 2021

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

3 of 14 – Pieragostini family

Thank you for supporting our dream.

As of April 2021, over 2220 players from 98 countries and 6 continents are part of the Smrikva Bowl family and on the 17 collection bottles representing 17 generations will be described in the following…

Smrikva Bowl was founded in 1996 and in 2005 Smrikva Bowl players started to plant olive trees. 15 generations (over 1550 players) have their olive tree planted in Smrikve… and two generations 25th and 26th generation have their tree too dedicated in Smrikve (over 170 players)

In April 2021 we were planning to bottle the 16 bottles “seeds of the Legends” Limited edition… due to corona virus pandemic the 25th Smrikva Bowl 2020 edition and 26th Smrikva Bowl 2021 edition were cancelled and we decided not to bottle the collection 2020 and 2021… and we hope to bottle the 17 new bottles in 2022…

21st of September - Smrikva Bowl Ambassador Day - 27th annual Smrikva Bowl 2022 "seeds of the Legends" research begins

Dear Smrikva Bowl and Smrikve friends!

It is 21st of September 2021, Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s Day (“SBA” Day), and time to start building the 27th annual candidacy process…

Smrikva Bowl Ambassador’s Day is the day when we celebrate the opening of the new selection process and as most of you already know we were not able to hold the 25th and 26th edition and gather the generations of talents born in 2010 and 2011… but as of today we have big hopes that there will be conditions to gather the generation of talents born in 2012 for the 27th edition that is scheduled for the end of June 2022.

World map

Our over 2220 SB players spread in 98 countries continue writing the “seeds of the Legends”story…

US OPEN 2021 had 3 Smrikva Bowl players in the quarterfinals: Carlos Alcaraz, Lloyd Harris and Belinda Bencic… and Daniel Rincon won junior US OPEN 2021 title…

… last year Dominic Thiem conquered his first Grand Slam title in New York 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… 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…

… 1120+ signed books arriving from 74 countries continue to be part of the Smrikva Bowl Heritage Library…
… over 1720 names were given by 17 SB generations to the old Smrikva Bowl olive trees…
… 36 Grand Slam titles (including junior titles) are conquered by 28 former Smrikva Bowl players…
… 56 professional ATP/WTA titles (1 Grand Slam title)…
… 1 golden Olympic medal and 1 silver Olympic medal…
… 52 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA…
… 31 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 for the moment over 240 children were able to do it…

… I do 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 Smrikva 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… Ema, Miki and many more to come…

I am also pleased to share that the 6th Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2022 will be held again next spring. The Family Week was born with vision to share with families some precious hints that may be of help to them in their journey. It is a long term development path and is a great holiday experience for players and families that can be lived at this young age.

There is also a new idea coming to my mind that I wish to start sharing it with Smrikva Bowl seeds with hope to make it real one day…

Back in summer 1998, about 24 years ago, I was attending Citicorp Associate Development program in New York… this was an opportunity for me to visit the US OPEN

I do remember I had only a vision about the event I was creating… the Smrikva Bowl… it was a dream about creating an inspiring event… and among my dreams I was thinking that there might come the day when there will be 25 past Smrikva Bowl players among top 100 ATP/WTA…

I also remember the big Wilson US OPEN tennis ball I bought in New York and made it a tradition for the Smrikva Bowl winners to sign it… wishing them to lift one day the US OPEN trophy… this wish become a true story when Dominic Thiem, who signed the famous ball back in 2003, lifted the real US Open trophy in 2020…

At the moment I am writing this letter there are 31 Smrikva Bowl players who actually reached top 100 ATP/WTA ranking… some of my dreams are getting real…

There are 52 Smrikva Bowl players who made it into the top 200 ATP/WTA and they made in total over 100M usd in prize money. The total prize money keep increasing by the double digits rate on yearly basis… and these are really big numbers… but more than big numbers these are a lot of potential opportunities that Smrikva Bowl seeds may spread in years to come around them…

I remember that Citicorp Associate Development program I was attending was considered at the time one of the best programs in finance on the Wall Street… I was part of an amazing class and we had amazing mentors… the one who impressed me the most at the time was Barry… he had a unique way of sharing his knowledge… in tennis terms we would say he was always in the zone… so relaxed… and so inspiring at the same time…

Those things I learned from Barry helped me understand the real financial situation of the Fiat Group back in 2001… and that knowledge actually helped this company survive one of its deepest financial crisis in its century long history…

But Barry’s words, that I vividly recall, is the story he shared with us one afternoon, at Citicorp training center building, that he is not teaching finance only to financially educated individuals like we were at the time, but he is also sharing his knowledge with successful professional athletes.

At first I did not understand why…

Why should you teach finance to someone who created so much wealth in their sport career that could last for centuries?

… and he explained that unfortunately many successful professionals were becoming social probems in the US… I was still not getting his point… than he told us that the majority of the professional athletes in the US were broken five years after completing their successful careers. We are talking in certain sports of about 3 out of 4 famous and successful players who spent all their wealth earned during their careers just five years after completing to play at professional level…

I learned about this problem 24 years ago and still today this problem persist… no matter how much resources you earn if you lack basic knowledge in how to manage the wealth you earned it is highly probable that you may end up among the 60-70%+ group of financially broken stars…

I always believed that Smrikva Bowl kids will build their own luck… and there are so many doing great… and they are doing great in most different fields… thanks to their tennis skills over 240+ received the scholarship to study in the US… and at the moment of putting down this letter there are 18 Smrikva Bowl players who made over 1M USD of prize money so far… and there are at least 10 Smrikva Bowl players that will cross this financial threshold in less than a year time…

I wish to open this opportunity of sharing part of my general knowledge earned in finance in my own way by establishing the possibility for the past Smrikva Bowl players to return to Smrikve with their families for their vacations and get some basics about the elements mentioned above… at what to pay attention to… especially once the time to retire from professional tennis arrives… and this will be just another of my gifts to the developing Smrikva Bowl family…

I envisage this learning experience as vacation… and opportunity to eventually learn something in an emotionally positive environment therefore to store it into the long term memory… I am aware that while playing professionally the players have tight schedules… but it is also true that visiting Smrikve with the family is always a potential battery recharging opportunity and always an opportunity to create and collect some good memories…

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 very powerful asset. My advice during orientation day to the Smrikva Bowl children was 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 wealthy person not because of the money they might make but because of the experience they will gain. The relationship wealth they will create with their living will be the most precious wealth for their well being that nobody will be able to take to them away.

We are living today the moment of limited travel possibilities… but 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…

Last 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… and this year we were honored to have few friends and Smrikva Bowl candidates with us in Smrikve from Japan, Russia and Croatia…

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 thoughts 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 Simba the importance of observing the nature and learning from it… of being curious… and he was teaching him to 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 this Nobel Prize for Peace 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 unstable 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 cumulated 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 cumulated knowledge in just a generation or two.

We have gotten used to rapid technological progress, but social progress is more complex. Humans learn throughout lifetime and mostly from 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 27th annual will be shared.

27th Smrikva Bowl, in case pandemic will be under control, will be held in Pula-Istria, Croatia, from (18th) 20th till 25th of June 2022. Smrikva Bowl gathers young tennis talents from all over the World and next year edition will be dedicated to players born in 2012.

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

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

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 theater 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 36 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 challenges today and every day for each of us… and even after corona virus is gone 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 really 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.

Rarely but still can happen that 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 27th Smrikva Bowl 2022 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 98 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 2022 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 2012 that deserves to play Smrikva Bowl or you wish to present your or support a candidacy for the SBTTFW 2022 family gatherings or for my new holidays initiative SBM+HFW please feel free to 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 2021. godine, Dan Ambasadora Smrikva Bowl-a, i vrijeme za kretanje u 27.-mi proces kandidiranja za Smrikvu…

Dan Ambasadora Smrikve je dan kada se slavi otvaranje nove selekcije Smrikvara, ali kao što većina vas zna već dvije godine nismo uspjeli održati 25. i 26.to izdanje i okupiti generacije talenata rođenih 2010 i 2011. Godine… ali na današnji dan imamo velike nade da će postojati uvjeti za okupljanje generacije talenata rođenih 2012.godine… za 27.-mo izdanje Smrikve koje je zakazano za kraj lipnja 2022. godine.

World map

Naših preko 2220 SB igrača raširenih u 98 zemalja i dalje nastavlja pisati legendarnu priču…

US OPEN 2021 je imao u četvrtfinalu 3 igrača Smrikva Bowl-a: Carlos Alcaraz, Lloyd Harris i Belinda Bencic… a Daniel Rincon je osvojio juniorski US OPEN 2021…

… prošle godine je Dominic Thiem u tom gradu 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 to bio New York… 6282 dana su samo 17 godina, 2 mjeseca i 10 dana … nešto malo više od 5 minuta za pretvoriti san iz djetinjstva u stvarnost … i Domi je dokaz da se sanjanje uz marljivi rad, upornost i skromnost 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 1720 imena ponosno nose naše posvećene stare masline Smrikva Bowl-a… stvarajući nešto posebno što se još uvijek teško može jasno razaznati…
… 36 Grand Slam titule (uključujući juniorske) su do danas prikupila 28 djeteta Smrikve…
… 56 profesionalnih ATP/WTA titula (1 Grand Slam titula)…
… 52 igrača su dostigli nivo TOP 200 ATP/WTA…
… 31 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 je preko 240 djece Smrikve to do danas 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 se odazivaju mojim pozivima i šalju nam potpisane predmete kako bi ih mogli pokloniti sudionicima Smrikve… za mene je taj trenutak prilika da podijelim dio njihovih priča sa djecom koja sanjaju poći njihovim stopama… i tako svako dijete koje je prisutno u tom trenutku međugeneracijskog slavlja ponese sa sobom predmet uspomene i nadam se da otkrije ponekad i 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… Ema… Miki…

Rado dijelim i vijest da će se 6.ti Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talent Family Week (SBTTFW) 2022 održati sljedećeg proljećeća. Obiteljski tjedan je rođen sa vizijom da se živi jedan obiteljski godišnji odmor u kojem se mogu podijeliti iskustva koja mogu biti od koristi u razvoju. Jedno vrlo posebno obiteljsko iskustvo.

Postoji već neko vrijeme jedna ideja u mojim mislima koju želim početi dijeliti sa djecom Smrikva Bowl-a u nadi da će i ona jednog dana postati stvarnost…

Još u ljeto 1998., prije otprilike 24 godine, pohađao sam Citicorp Associate Development program u New Yorku … ovo mi je bila i prilika da posjetim US OPEN

Sjećam se da sam tada imao tek viziju o događaju koji sam stvarao … Smrikva Bowl… bio je to san o stvaranju inspirativnog događaja … i među snovima sam razmišljao da bi mogao doći dan kad će među 100 najboljih ATP/WTA biti 25 učesnika Smrikva Bowl-a…

Sjećam se i velike teniske loptice Wilson US OPEN koju sam kupio u New Yorku i učinio tradicijom da je pobjednici Smrikva Bowla potpisuju … poželjevši im da jednog dana podignu trofej US OPEN … ova želja postala je istinita priča kada je Dominic Thiem, koji je slavnu loptu potpisao 2003., podigao pravi trofej US Opena 2020. godine …

U ovom trenutku dok pišem ovo pismo, postoji 31 igrač Smrikva Bowla koji je zapravo dosegao nivo prvih 100 ATP/WTA ljestvice … i neki moji snovi stvarno postaju stvarnost :) …

Postoji 52 igrača Smrikva Bowla koji su ušli u prvih 200 ATP/WTA -a, a ukupno su privredili više od 100M USD od turnirskih nagradnih fondova. Taj ukupni nagradni fond neprestano se povećava za dvoznamenkastu stopu na godišnjoj razini… a to uistinu jesu velike brojke… ali više od velikih brojeva, ovo su samo mnoge mogućnosti koje bi sjeme Smrikva Bowl-a moglo proširiti u godinama koje dolaze …

Sjećam se da se Citicorp Associate Development programa Citicorp-a koji sam pohađao u to vrijeme smatrao jednim od najboljih programa financija na Wall Streetu svog vremena… Bio sam dio nevjerojatnog razreda i imali smo posebno inspirativne mentore… onaj koji me posebno impresionirao u to vrijeme bio je profesor Barry… imao je jedinstven način da dijeli svoje znanje …

Te stvari koje sam naučio od Barryja pomogle su mi da shvatim stvarno financijsko stanje Fiat Grupe još 2001. godine … i to znanje je zapravo pomoglo ovoj tvrtki da preživi jednu od svojih najdubljih financijskih kriza u svojoj stoljetnoj povijesti …

No, Barryjeve riječi, kojih se živo sjećam, priča su koju je podijelio s nama jednog popodneva, u našoj zgradi Citicorp centra za obuku, da on ne podučava financije samo financijski obrazovanim pojedincima kao što smo to bili mi u to vrijeme, već prenosi i svoje znanje uspješnim profesionalnim sportašima.

Isprva mi nije bilo jasno zašto …

Zašto biste trebali podučavati financije nekoga tko je stvorio toliko novaca tijekom svoje sportske karijere koja bi mogla trajati stoljećima?

… i objasnio je da su nažalost mnogi uspješni profesionalci postali društveni problemi u SAD -u … Još uvijek nisam shvaćao o čemu točno govori … tada nam je rekao da je većina profesionalnih sportaša u SAD -u pet godina nakon dovršetka uspješne karijere bez i jedne kune. Govorimo u nekim sportovima o otprilike 3 od 4 poznata i uspješna igrača koji su svo svoje bogatstvo stečeno tijekom karijere potrošili u samo pet godina nakon što su završili s igranjem na profesionalnoj razini …

Naučio sam o ovom problemu prije 24 godine, a i dan danas taj problem ostaje … bez obzira na to koliko novčanih sredstava privredili ako vam nedostaje osnovnog ekonomskog znanja, velika je vjerojatnost da ćete završiti među onih 60 -70%+ financijski propalih zvijezdi…

Uvijek sam vjerovao da će djeca Smrikva Bowla sama izgraditi svoje puteve … a ima toliko onih koji se odlično snalaze u različitim područjima … zahvaljujući svojim teniskim vještinama više od 240+ je dobilo stipendiju za studiranje u SAD -u … i u trenutku pisanja ovog pisma 18 igrača Smrikva Bowl-a su prešli granicu od 1M USD osvojenih nagradnih fondova… i ima najmanje 10 igrača Smrikve koji će preći ovaj prag za manje od godinu dana …

Želim otvoriti ovu priliku dijeljenja dijela svog općeg znanja na svoj način uspostavljanjem mogućnosti da se prošli igrači Smrikva Bowla s obitelji vrate u Smrikve na odmor i steknu neke osnove o gore spomenutim elementima … na što obratiti pažnju kada dođe vrijeme za povlačenje iz profesionalnog tenisa… ovo je zamišljeno kao samo još jedan od poklona obitelji Smrikva Bowl u razvoju …

Zamišljam ovo iskustvo kao odmor… i priliku da na kraju spozna se nešto u emocionalno pozitivnom okruženju pa da se to pohrani i u dugoročno pamćenje … Svjestan sam da igrači profesionalno igrači imaju gust raspored … ali istina je i da je posjet Smrikvama s obitelji uvijek prilika za punjenje baterija i uvijek prilika za stvaranje i prikupljanje novih uspomena …

Sa zadovoljstvom dijelim u nastavku nekoliko priča koje u sebi nosi DNK Smrikva Bowl-a… i kako Rafiki voli reći… neke priče vrijede ponoviti i više puta…

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 proteklih 18 mjeseci smo vidjeli kako lako poteškoće i izazovi stavljeni pred ljude mogu brzo promijeniti život na koji smo navikli …

Prije više 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… pogotovo kad smo prisiljeni izaći iz komfort zone iz zone već poznatoga…

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 iskustava… i vjerujem da će svako od njih jednog dana postati vrlo bogat ali ne radi novaca koje će privrediti već bogatstva koje će stvoriti svojim življenjem… to će biti dragocjeno bogatstvo za svoje unutarnje 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 istraživati nova mjesta i kulture 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 prenosi jednu poruku intergeneracijesk odgovornosti… svih ovih godina tijekom ceremonije, svaki Ambasador stavi grudu zemlje blizu korijena masline i pokloni svoje ime stablu …

Prošle godine smo moja obitelj i ja obavili ceremoniju za svu djecu koja su prošla postupak selekcije, ali se nisu uspjela okupiti na svojoj Smrikvi… a ove godine smo imali čast toga dana imati nekoliko prijatelja i kandidata igrača Smrikva Bowl-a iz Japana, Rusije i Hrvatske…

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 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…

… i možda se sjetite dijela kada Mufasa objašnjava Simbi da nije lako biti kralj… mu kaže kako bi dobar kralj trebao znati da sve oko nas živi u delikatnoj ravnoteži i da sa 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 je povijest budućnosti 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 Nobelovca 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 svoj poruci rekao: “Učinite to!” i tako me podsjetio na Yodinu mudrost kada je dijeli sa mladim Skywalkerom i 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 27. Smrikva Bowl 2022.

27. Smrikva Bowl 2022., u slučaju ovladavanja pandemijom, će se održati u Puli (Istri – Hrvatskoj) od (18.) 20. – 25. lipnja 2022. godine… a sljedeća godina će biti posvećena talentiranim igračima rođenim 2012.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 i previše rano je mjeriti njenu ostavštinu… ali oduvijek vjerujem da će više djece napisati inspirativne priče u najrazličitijim profesijama koje odaberu… i 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 36 Grand Slam titula… a da budem iskren moja želja za “sjeme Legendi” je oduvijek nadilazila 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 i ima ih svakoga dana… pa i nakon završetka pandemije jedno je sigurno da će u budućnosti 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 igra 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 poneko zaluta na Smrikvu, misleći da je to neko „jako važno“ natjecanje… ponekad ne razumijevajući da isključivo rezultat nije taj glavni skriveni 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 27.-og Smrikva Bowl-a 2022.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 98 zemlje svijeta zahvaljujući obiteljima Smrikve… i naše su količine oduvijek ograničene… kao što je ograničen broj igrača koje možemo pozvati svake godine… ali ponovno 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 bilo je hrabrih posjetitelja 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 2012. godine koje bi zavrijedilo zaigrati na Smrikvi ili se želite i sami kandidirati za obiteljski tjedan SBTTFW 2022., ili za najnoviji odmor SBM+HFW mi slobodno pišite…

I za kraj mog uvijek dugačkog pisma… 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 Smrikvi,

Mio


Cari amici dello Smrikva Bowl e di Smrikve!

È il 21 settembre 2021, la Giornata dell’Ambasciatore Smrikva Bowl, ed è tempo di iniziare a costruire un nuovo processo della selezione per i candidati della 27.esima edizione dello Smrikva…

La giornata degli Ambasciatori dello Smrikve e’ il giorno in cui si festeggia l’apertura del nuovo processo di selezione e come molti di voi sanno non siamo riusciti a tenere la 25-esima e la 26-esima edizione e riunire la generazione di talenti nati nel 2010 e 2011… ma ad oggi abbiamo grandi speranze che ci saranno le condizioni per accogliere la generazione di talenti nati nel 2012 per la 27-esima edizione che è prevista per la fine di giugno 2022.

World map

Oltre 2220 giocatori della famiglia Smrikva sparsi in 98 paesi continuano a scrivere la storia dei “semi delle leggende” …

US OPEN 2021 ha avuto 3 giocatori Smrikva nei quarti di finale: Carlos Alcaraz, Lloyd Harris e Belinda Bencic… e Daniel Rincon ha vinto il titolo juniores US OPEN 2021…

…l’anno scorso Dominic Thiem 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 Smrikva, 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 minuti per trasformare un sogno d’infanzia in realtà … ma Domi è una dimostrazione che sogno unito al duro lavoro e rimanendo umili nel proprio cammino paga a lungo termine …

… oltre 1120 libri firmati provenienti da 74 paesi rimangono custoditi nella libreria dello Smrikva Bowl…
… oltre 1720 nomi sono stati regalati da 17 generazioni dello Smrikva agli alberi d’ulivo dello Smrikva… creando qualcosa di speciale ed ancora difficile da scorgere…
… 36 titoli Grande Slam (inclusi titoli juniores) sono gia’ stati collezionati da 28 ragazzi che giocarono lo Smrikva Bowl…
… 56 titoli professionali ATP/WTA (1 titolo Grande Slam)…
… 1 medaglia olimpica d’oro nel singolare ed 1 medaglia olimpica d’argento nel doppio…
… 52 giocatori hanno raggiunto la classifica TOP 200 ATP/WTA
… 31 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 240 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… e che ci danno la forza per riunirli nel giardino di casa nostra…

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) 2022 si terra’ in primavera. Family Week è nato con la visione di condividere con le famiglie e i giocatori una vaccanza speciale che possa essere loro di aiuto per lo sviluppo a lungo termine ed è una grande esperienza di gioco da vivere a questa giovane età.

C’è anche una nuova idea che mi sta venendo da un po di tempo in mente e che desidero iniziare a condividere con la speranza di realizzarla un giorno…

Nell’estate del 1998, circa 24 anni fa, frequentavo il programma Citicorp Associate Development a New York… questa è stata un’opportunità per me di visitare gli US OPEN

Ricordo che avevo solo una visione dell’evento che stavo creando… lo Smrikva Bowl… era un sogno di creare un evento che potesse inspirare… e tra i miei sogni pensavo che potesse venire il giorno in cui ci saranno 25 giocatori passati per lo Smrikva Bowl tra i primi 100 ATP/WTA…

Ricordo anche la grande pallina da tennis Wilson US OPEN che ho comprato a New York e che resi tradizione per i vincitori della Smrikva firmarla… augurando loro di sollevare un giorno il trofeo degli US OPEN… questo desiderio è diventato una storia vera quando Dominic Thiem, che ha firmato il famoso pallone nel 2003, ha alzato il vero trofeo degli US Open nel 2020…

Al momento in cui sto scrivendo questa lettera ci sono 31 giocatori della Smrikva Bowl che hanno effettivamente raggiunto la top 100 della classifica ATP/WTA… alcuni dei miei sogni stanno diventando realtà…

Ci sono 52 giocatori della Smrikva Bowl che sono entrati tra i primi 200 ATP/WTA ed hanno totalizzato oltre 100M di dollari in premi. Il montepremi complessivo continua ad aumentare del tasso a doppia cifra su base annua… e questi sono sicuramente i grandi numeri… più che grandi numeri, queste sono grandi opportunità che i semi di Smrikva Bowl potranno diffondere negli anni a venire…

Ricordo che il programma Citicorp Associate Development a cui stavo partecipando era considerato all’epoca uno dei migliori programmi di finanza a Wall Street… Facevo parte di una classe fantastica e avevamo dei mentori fantastici… quello che mi impressiono’ molto all’epoca era professore Barry… aveva un modo unico di condividere il suo sapere…

Quelle cose che ho imparato da Barry mi hanno aiutato a capire la reale situazione finanziaria del Gruppo Fiat nel 2001… e quel sapere ha effettivamente aiutato questa azienda a sopravvivere una delle sue più profonde crisi finanziarie nella sua storia lunga un secolo…

Ma le parole di Barry, che ricordo vividamente, sono la storia che ha condiviso con noi un pomeriggio, nell’edificio del centro di formazione Citicorp, che lui non sta insegnando solo finanza a persone istruite finanziariamente come eravamo noi all’epoca, ma sta anche condividendo le sue conoscenze con atleti professionisti di successo.

All’inizio non capivo perché…

Perché dovresti insegnare la finanza a qualcuno che ha creato così tanto benessere economico durante la sua carriera sportiva che potrebbe durare per secoli?

… e ci ha spiegato che sfortunatamente molti professionisti di successo stavano diventando dei problemi sociali negli Stati Uniti… non avevo ancora capito il suo punto… poi ci ha detto che la maggior parte degli atleti professionisti negli Stati Uniti hanno speso i loro patrimoni cinque anni dopo aver completato la loro carriera di successo. Parliamo in alcuni sport di circa 3 giocatori famosi e di successo su 4 che hanno speso tutto in soli cinque anni dal completamento della loro carriera professionistica…

Ho appreso di questo problema 24 anni fa e ancora oggi questo problema persiste… non importa quante risorse guadagni se ti mancano le conoscenze di base su come gestire queste risorse è altamente probabile che tu possa finire tra i 60 -70%+ dei casi della bancarotta personale…

Ho sempre creduto che molti dei ragazzi della Smrikva Bowl costruiranno la propria fortuna… e c’e’ ne sono così tanti che stanno andando bene nei campi più diversi… grazie alle loro abilità nel tennis oltre 240+ hanno ricevuto la borsa di studio per studiare negli Stati Uniti… e al momento della stesura di questa lettera ci sono 18 giocatori di Smrikva Bowl che hanno guadagnato oltre 1M di dollari dei monte premi… e ci sono almeno 10 giocatori dello Smrikva che attraverseranno questa soglia in meno di un anno…

Desidero aprire questa opportunità di condividere un piccola parte delle mie conoscenze generali a modo mio, stabilendo la possibilità per i giocatori dello Smrikva Bowl di tornare a Smrikve con la loro famiglia per le loro vacanze e ottenere alcune nozioni di base sugli elementi sopra menzionati… su che cosa prestare attenzione… soprattutto quando arriva il momento di ritirarsi dal tennis professionistico… e questo sarà solo un altro dei miei regali alla grande famiglia in via di sviluppo dello Smrikva Bowl…

Immagino questa esperienza come una vacanza… e un’opportunità per imparare qualcosa in un ambiente emotivamente positivo, quindi per conservarlo nella memoria a lungo termine… Sono consapevole che mentre giocano professionalmente i giocatori hanno tempi stretti… ma è anche vero che visitare Smrikve con la famiglia è sempre un’opportunità per ricaricare la batteria e sempre un’opportunità per creare qualche bel ricordo…

Sono lieto di condividere alcune storie che sono importanti per me e fanno parte della base sulla quale venne fondato lo Smrikva Bowl…

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 e mezzo quanto facilmente le difficoltà e le sfide poste di fronte alle persone possano cambiare la vita a cui siamo abituati …

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 le esperienze che vivranno. La ricchezza che creeranno con il proprio vivere e viaggiare sarà una ricchezza preziosa per il loro benessere interiore che nessuno sarrà in grado di portarli via.

Stiamo vivendo oggi il momento di limitate possibilita’ di viaggiare … ma dobbiamo avere fiducia 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 dello 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…

L’anno scorso in 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 … e quest’anno siamo stati fortunati ad avere pochi amici e candidati alla Smrikva Bowl con noi a Smrikve dal Giappone, dalla Russia e dalla Croazia…

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

Molte volte trovo inspirazione per condividere il mio pensiero con i bambini 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…

… qualcuno potrebbe ricordarsi la scena 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 che porta il messaggio di sopra e’ stata firmata dal Premio Nobel per la pace menzionato sopra ed 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 Luke Skywalker 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 accummulata.

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…

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… ed al momento siamo noi coloro che rappresentiamo la civilta’ d’oggi…

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 27-esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl che, nel caso la pandemia fosse sotto controllo, si terrà a Pola (Croazia-Istria) dal (18) 20 giugno fino al 25 giugno 2022. Smrikva Bowl raccoglie talenti a livello mondiale e la prossima edizione sarra’ dedicata ai giocatori nati nel 2012.

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 poter osservare quale fosse 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 racchetta da tennis …

Anno dopo anno diventa sempre piu’ evidente che piu’ di uno conquisterra’ tornei dello Grande Slam… hanno gia’ totalizzato 36 titoli in singolare e doppio negli eventi 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 ed ogni giorno che dobbiamo affrontare… ed anche quando corona virus farra’ parte del passato c’e’ ne saranno sempre delle sfide nuove in futuro da affrontare … ed 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 dello Smrikva Bowl stanno giocando a tennis perché i loro genitori vorrebbero che diventassero giocatori di tennis professionisti e quanti di loro 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.

Sempre piu’ raramente ma 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 per 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 27. Smrikva Bowl 2022 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 98 paesi del mondo… le nostre quantita’ sono sempre molto limitate… come sono limitati i posti dei ragazzi che possiamo invitare ogni anno… ma credo lo stesso come credevo nei giocatori di Smrikva Bowl che un giorno l’olio d’oliva prodotto dagli alberi piantati dalle “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 2022 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 2012 che meriterebbe di partecipare o volete candidarvi per lo sesto raduno familiare SBTTFW 2022 o per la mia nuova iniziativa di vacanze SBM+HFW non esitate a farmelo sapere…

… 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 tempo dedicato alla lettura, per averci visitato e per la condivisione con gli amici dalla storia di Smrikve.
