Cute Croation "ic"es: A Spotter's Guide

Posted by gauloises1 on April 27, 2009

It has come to my attention that there is some confusion about the relative identities, appearances and medical histories of Croatia’s finest, cutest, lankiest players, Mario Ancic and Marin Cilic.

    Prpic must have been standing on something – he’s nowhere near their size!

  8. […] Tough loss for Sam, but great win for Marin. Although BBC Sport obviously haven’t been reading this blog carefully enough. Don’t make me do another Croatian picspam! […]

  9. […] They didn’t manage it, falling in three tight sets and leaving the Croatians with nothing to do except demonstrate that they’re not nearly as good at hugging as they have been in the past. […]

  10. […] Delpo; much adorable Goran-age is implied, if not necessary; a nice line in deadpan; excellent hugger; did I mention the […]
