PS Among other things, she told him that in 3 years time, there will be the return of the serve & volley.

She started training novak when he was 7. She also played fed cup for yugoslavia and helped train seles and ivanisevic.

I'd love to see it (s and v coming back) too, however, first the attackers must solve the problem that the return of serve is too severe with the powerful big racquets and spinny strings coupled with the slow courts neutralising the serve (just as they intended.) Novak doesn't seem too convinced, he is saying in that interview he thinks combination is best though he is trying to get in the net more. The old lady seems very wise and insightful though and she could somehow be right. The day when one player is able to find out the way to make it work for himself, everybody will naturally rush to do the same. I'm hoping it will be Tsonga!

Also, I really like Djok's interaction with Gencic there. You can feel his genuine affection and respect for her.

Maybe that's Serbian for "nadal will take up fishing",

Gencic trained them as kids though. Anybody can teach kids. What could she possibly teach him as an adult?

very interesting. I can only say that someone who trained Seles, Goran and Novak when they were very young must know a thing or two about tennis :-).

I've heard many great things about this lady. I used to be a big Seles fan when I was a kid. Nowadays, I don't even watch the WTA tour. It's kinda sad.

Digital design software and structural drawing(penciling) to Design Foundation students in 1999-2002. I also was an assistant for an after-hours Resume building service for students who needed help to improve their resumes for finding jobs. I'm obviously not anywhere near as important to the world as Gencic who helped kids excel in a sport but I was fairly instrumental in helping teens nab jobs after graduation.:)

pretty average resume points.

if you are trying for law school, med school or b school, you need to step up and beef up your resume points on extra currics.
