Uralochka NTMK Ekaterinburg

  • Mikhail Karpol: Cilic beat, and he then took the US Open


    Michael, the great grandson of Nicholas Karpol, of course, quite logically looked next to his grandfather on the bench coaching volleyball "Uralochka-NTMK". The young coach in 25 years rich sports biography. And he has almost never gives interviews.


    He was born in Yekaterinburg, but after the death of his grandfather parents decided to send a 4-year-old grandson in Croatia, where at the time he was quite famous after winning a local "Mladost" Champions League. Near the Mediterranean Misha graduated from high school and received Croatian citizenship.


    - Language quickly learned?


    - The four-year course, I have already said in Russian, but when you're small, it is still easier to learn the language, the more you get into the school, where you somehow have to communicate. When in Russia back in 2009, spoke in Russian is much worse than in Croatian, even now have an accent, you hear? Even thought the Croatian. I have many friends from Serbia: and in the same "Ural" (football club from Yekaterinburg. - Approx. Ed.) Played Milan Vještica, Branimir Petrovic. Veshtitsa "Zenit" played four years, we'd still keep in touch. Friends with Nicola Lepoevichem, he now plays for Surgut Basketball Super League.


    "They say that Federer nobody will ever know"


    - You have the same near the tennis history?


    - For some time seriously engaged. As a child, there were successes: in general, for those under 14 years of age in tennis is not carried out the official World Cup, but we had an unofficial championship in Paris, which then came to almost all the best players from around the world. These competitions I managed to win. The following year I was 15 years old, again got a team, then in the same team was Marin Cilic, we won the European Championship winter, in the summer Europe took silver and were third in the world.


    - Why have completed a career?


    - From the knee to the ankle are the two bones, big and small. Training in Spain was hit by a ball a foot, and now this is the smallest bone - fibula - cracked, double offset spokes in the leg, the year of recovery. Before the injury I played at Wimbledon juniors, qualifying him beat Kei Nishikori. When I returned, I realized that this form to have a lot of work. Gained weight, lost touch with the regime began to rave, to lose. In two years, scored 6 or 7 points in the Asia-Pacific region and ... a pity that it happened. Wimbledon IMG (known agency. - Approx. Ed.) Offered a contract for 1.2 million euros. They pay for travel, training, tournaments. When injured, the contract was in the room unsigned, then they withdrew it, of course.


    - It's a shame ...


    - When you see the man you beat a child, wins US Open, different thoughts arise, although we Marin Cilic in a good relationship, communicate until now. I am glad that he has all happened in tennis, I had to ask myself with stricter.


    - To imitate, as a young tennis player?


    - At one time even tried to walk like Safin, t-shirts, ornaments, still some things peeping at him. At that time he was very popular.


    - Today, all chosen idols of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal.


    - According to the technique, of course, Roger - god. We have, in Croatia, was a coach, worked with a guy who for juniors regularly met with Federer. Roger for a long time considered any at all. Right, seriously, zero. This guy once played against Federer and lost him one set. And the coach he wrote in his diary: "You played a very bad match, with incomprehensible Swiss, which anywhere else no one will ever hear."
    Djokovic now number one on the physical and data level. I remember him, he was two years older, but in some tournaments we still crossed. Great guy.


    - After living 15 years in Croatia, you know who Mirko Filipovic (MMA fighter, considered to be a major contender in the career of Fedor Emelianenko. - Approx. Ed.)?


    - We lived through three entrances. His manager - the father of my good friend's tennis. He was just doing his career from the beginning. Once Mirko and his wife came to the movies, in the back row there were some funny guys. Mirko's wife asked them to be quiet, her back almost a prostitute called them. They say he then waited for them at the box office, something about six people there were. In general, I was told that then it is not clear that it was, but the guys in fifteen seconds littered all.


    "I know how girls live"


    - Fly away from Croatia, knowing that you do not disperse in volleyball?


    - No, flew to learn. Then he was invited to play in the city league volleyball. Nikolai called to help the team. At first, one might say, balls filed, then started with someone individually engaged, and went. As a player with an amateur team won the city and the region. With youth "Uralochka" as a coach - the championship. Of course, a lot from Nikolai learned. We first became friends with the girls, it's probably not very good, but I did not know yet that the coach will be. On the other hand, I know how they live, what they are interested in. They were also able to understand what training I coach them, and for friends we playground.


    - At what point did the most learned about volleyball?


    - In 2004, when he came to the Olympics. Honestly before even the most did not know what was going on. When in 2000 the final out our grandmother with her sister said, "Let's look at our final team plays," and I was 11 years old, did not even know what the final Olympics, went with the boys to play football. After 4 years, it's different there.


    - After the Mediterranean Croatia Ekaterinburg you like?


    - Believe it or not, but I love this city. He is the last six years has changed dramatically. Routine, the places where you can go, he is far ahead of the same Zagreb, but the road in Russia is very bad. I'm cold and Croatia bore easily. When it was cold, could walk in shorts, someone at a temple finger twisted: "Rus, are you crazy?". Russian, of course, because of the place of birth was called.


    - Winning "Uralochka" to "Dinamo" Krasnodar became a sensation. As has happened is a miracle?


    - And the team is very well prepared, and the girls, probably before the end of the felt volleyball, which is played by Nikolai. We watched from the coaching zone with Nikolai Vasilyevich and at every moment to understand what we can. An incredible match was.
