  2. ps; marija, is it to late to change my name for this blog? im tempted to change it to my middle name. does this work for you?

  3. JJ as a mentor? Hmm,I wonder if she’ll have enough time for her mentee. Ah well, if she throws a few matches here and there… :0)

  4. Wait a minute, since when did JJ become a Kung Fu Tennis master? I missed the graduation. Ms. Marija you wouldn’t happen to have any JJ’s graduation photos from grasshopper to master? Does this mean that Ms. Krunic is JJ’s grasshopper? I guess that the Kung Fu Tennis line is being pass down through the Serbs. 😛
