The hair maybe more grey and movement around the court a yard slower, but Croatian tennis legend Goran Ivanišević still has a few tricks up his sleeve…
The former Wimbledon champion is Croatia’s only representative at the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) which started in Kobe, Japan on Wednesday. Goran, whose serve is not as vicious as it once was, beat Carlos Moya to give his team UAE Royals and overall victory against the Singapore Slammers 20-26. Goran and Moya played the last deciding last match of the tie. Ivanišević’s UAE Royals included Ana Ivanović and Tomas Berdych.
The IPTL features a formidable array of tennis superstars such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Marin Čilić, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Kei Nishikori and Nick Kyrgios.
