Dear Kiki,

How painful it was for us (your family, your friends and the world of tennis) to learn that you left us despite all the hard efforts and all the difficult times you endured to overcome your illness...

We have tried to give you all our love and energy to make your fight more bearable…

and you deserved another end…

We hope that where you are now you can have some peace and comfort...

One of your wishes was to be able to feel that the world of tennis would not forget you, so we will try to honor your memory and count you among us every day of our daily coaching on the circuit that you loved so much...

We will miss you,

Rest in Peace, Kristijan…

All of us coaches are involved in one way or another to help you during your tough moments.
