Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2018

Dear Smrikve friends,

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

… I always believed that Smrikva Bowl kids and families will write stories able to inspire generations to come… and today can be foreseen more than one will do it…

22nd Smrikva Bowl edition is behind us… and 1820 Smrikva Bowl seeds are spread in 85 countries…

So far they conquered a total of 29 junior GRAND SLAM titles… 21 professional ATP/WTA titles… 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… and in the most respected under 12, 14, 18 tournaments there is always someone who reach the end of the Draw…

To have a dream is nice… but to have people who dream with you is even more nice…

Special thanks goes to all who keep visiting Smrikve after their Smrikva Bowl and choose to stay at our „home away from home“… bringing news… inviting friends to visit us…

We do our best to keep improving in different directions… your visit do inspire us… and inspiration was always the invisible key for another good year…

Long time ago we started to prepare 4th Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks (SBTTFW) 2018… scheduled for 13/4/-21/4/ and 22/4 – 29/4/… a special development week guided by Luca Appino, credited for signing contracts with Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (all of them scouted when they were far away from becoming #1)…

Preparations for the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 edition started the day after the 22nd annual finals and another good year of talents is envisaged…

May 2018 will be the year when a Smrikva Bowl seed collect the first senior Grand Slam title of many to come… this will be a great moment to smirk ;)…

… and one last thing… this year Smrikva Bowl olive trees made good fruits again… collecting olives is one of the most relaxing family moments… and is an honor to take care of the trees knowing that the olive trees planted since 2005 by our Ambassadors are becoming every day more and more special…

Best wishes to you and your families,

Mio

Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Prosinac je vrijeme čestitanja… vrijeme želja… vrijeme za prisjetiti se godine koja prolazi… a i trenutak za osmisliti nove puteve kojima krenuti koji mogu donijeti radosti i energije svakome od nas…

… oduvjek sam vjerovao da djeca Smrikve imaju prilike zapisati priče koje će primjerom nadahnuti generacije koje dolaze… i sve je lakše razaznati da će više njih ipisati svoje ime zlatnim slovima…

22. Smrikva Bowl je iza nas… i sjeme Smrikve broji 1820 talenata raširenih u 85 zemalja…

Već danas posjeduju impresivan životopis… 29 juniorske GRAND SLAM titule… 21 profesionalna ATP/WTA titula… 2 igrača je dostiglo TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… i zadnjih godina svaki najprestižniji turnir u svijetu do 12, 14 ili 18 godina uvijek ima ponekog Smrikvara u završnici ždrijeba…

Sanjati je lijepo… ali imati ljude koji sanjaju uz tebe je još ljepše…

Posebno hvala svima koji nas posjećuju… donose vijesti… dovode prijatelje…

Trudimo se biti vrijedni i napredovati kao što to čine naši mališani… svaki posjet inspiriše… a inspiracija je uvijek bila nevidljivi ključ dobre godine…

Dugo se radi na pripremi Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2018 koji će se održati od 13/4/-21/4/ i 22/4/-29/4/… jedno razvojno iskustvo uz prijatelja Luku Appina, kojem se pripisuje otrivanje igrača poput Rafaela Nadala, Andy Roddicka, Kim Clijsters, Dinare Safina, Caroline Wozniacki dok su bili daleko od broja 1 na svijetu…

Isto tako 23. Smrikva Bowl-u 2018. je u punom jeku pripremanja… i očekuje se još jedna dobra godina…

Možda 2018.ta bi mogla biti godina prvog seniorskog Grand Slam od mnogih koji će već doći… bio bi to divan trenutak za smješak ;)…

… i još nešto za kraj… da ne zaboravim :)… ove godine su masline dobro rodile… berba je uvijek poseban opuštajući trenutak u obitelji… trenutak mira i inspiracije… i čast je brinuti se o maslinama Ambasadora Smrikv koje svakoga dana postaju sve posebnije…

Sve najljepše i vama i obitelji!

Mio

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

Cari amici di Smrikve,

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

… ho sempre creduto che i ragazzi dello Smrikva Bowl scriveranno storie che ispireranno con l’esempio… ed e’ sempre piu’ facile scorgere che piu’ di uno lo farra’…

22.esima edizione e’ dietro di noi… e 1820 semi dello Smrikva sono sparsi in 85 paesi…

Questi ragazzi hanno collezionato un totale di 29 titoli juniores negli GRANDE SLAM… 21 titoli professionali ATP/WTA… 2 sono entrati in TOP 10 ATP/WTA… ed in tornei prestigiosi under 12,14,18 nel Mondo c’e sempre qualcuno che arriva alla fine del tabellone…

Avere un sogno e’ bello… ma avere la gente che sogna insieme a te e’ ancora piu’ bello…

Grazie speciale a tutti che ci visitano… portano notizie… e continuano a portare nuovi amici…

Cerchiamo di migliorare sempre noi stessi e le vostre visite portano inspirazione… e l’inspirazione e’ sempre stata l’invisibile chiave per un altro buon anno…

Si lavora da tempo per il 4. Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2018 che si terra’ tra il 13/4/-21/4/ e 22/4/-29/4/… sarra’ una settimana di studio-crescita guidata dall’amico Luca Appino, al quale va il credito d’aver firmato giocatori come Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (scoperti quando erano molto lontani dal diventare #1 nel mondo)

23.esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl 2017 e’ in fase di preparazione dal giorno dopo la finale della 22.esima edizione… e si attende un’altra annata di talenti…

Spero 2018 porti anche il primo Grand Slam tra molti che veranno tra gli seniores… sarebbe un speciale momento per sorridere ;)…

…e l’ultima cosa… quest’anno gli ulivi hanno fruttato bene… la raccolta e’ sempre un momento magico in famiglia e di relax… e’ un onore prendere cura di ulivi speciali piantati dai nostri Ambasciatori che ogni anno diventano sempre piu’ speciali…

Un caro augurio a voi e le vostre famiglie,

Mio
