P1010978I'm liking this dude Ilija Bozoljac, the Davis Cup hero in Boise who won the crucial doubles point with Nenad Zimonjic against the Bryans last week. Well he's here in Sarasota. I did a Biofile with him on Saturday and he's one of those free spirits you instantly like, totally honest and open, funny, gives a reporter good copy and a smile with every answer.He said Wimbledon is his favorite tournament but added that he really likes Sarasota too, so far. Since we spoke he's won four matches here, two in quali singles and two in doubles with Devvarman. He beat Wolmarans on center court today in two sets, then did an interview with a fumbling TV guy from the local ABC affiliate who couldn't get his microphone to work. Then in the late afternoon, Bozoljac won in doubles with Devvarman against Roman Boranov and another Euro. Bozoljac was cracking one handers and two handers off both wings and grunting so loud that Jimmy Arias' brother Kevin, a coach down here, was cracking up and appreciating what a character on the court he is. (By the way, Kevin Arias is super cool too. His main student, who is going to Penn State on scholarship, got to hit with Frank Dancevic before Frank the Tank routed Martin Alund in the might match on center court.) One of my colleagues, a Serbian reporter named Braca Djordjevic just told me on Facebook that Bozoljac once told him that the reason he plays lefty and righty, with one and two hands on both sides is because he doesn't really know if he's lefty or righty because his brain sends him mixed messages from the right and left side. You're gonna love this dude Bozoljac, he's really one of a kind. And he can play some tennis too, doubles and singles. Remember, he once beat Marin Cilic in three sets in the Australian Open. And he also won a set from Roger Federer at Wimbledon a couple of years ago.Dan, lemme tell you, if you ever get inspired to do a Break Point book Part Two, Ilija Bozoljac would be your perfect subject.
