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

Dear Smrikve friends,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Best wishes,

Mio



Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A i obiteljski tjedan SBTTFW koji će se održati u 3 termina: 13/4/-20/4/, 21/4/-28/4/ i 14/9-21/9… je posebno razvojno iskustvo za polaznike i obitelji u duhu Smrikve koje će voditi prijatelj Luca Appino… i kojem se pripisuje otrivanje igrača poput Rafaela Nadala, Andy Roddicka, Kim Clijsters, Dinare Safina, Caroline Wozniacki (dok su bili daleko od broja 1 na svijetu)… i ja i Luca svake godine istražujemo teniske granice i sljedeća godina će ponovno biti posebna za polaznike.

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

Sve najljepše,

Mio


Cari amici di Smrikve,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SBTTFW si terranno nelle seguenti 3 settimane: 13/4/-20/4/, 21/4/-28/4/ e 14/9-21/9… e sarranno le settimane di studio-condivisione-crescita guidate dall’amico Luca Appino, al quale va il credito d’aver firmato giocatori come Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (scoperti quando erano molto lontani dal diventare #1 nel mondo)… sia io che Luca continuamo ad osservarie la frontiera del mondo tennistico di domani ed anche le settimane dell’anno che viene saranno un regalo speciale ai nostri alumni.

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

Auguri,

Mio

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

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

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

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

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

Stefano Lopopolo presented the Self Talk tool…

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

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

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

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

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

visualization… breathing…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It was another Symposium “good year”… :)
