Nemanja Nedovic lost the last four games of the Serbian national team due to a hematoma, but now he is ready to go and it’s up to coach Svetislav Pesic to include him in the final roster.
As he said about his condition to Mozzart Sport: “It’s good, I’m in a pretty good condition. I did a full training session and there were no problems, no reactions after training, which was the most important thing. On Tuesday, I will do contact training with the team, then we will see what and how to proceed.”
Nedovic admits that missing some action pushed him back after getting injured in the prep game against Slovenia , but he hopes that he will ready to play at 100% during the Eurobasket tournament: “All these ten days I was training, the injury limited my movements, but I always found a way to work on my fitness. That’s why I believe it won’t take me long to get into the rhythm. We have some managable games at beginning of the group stage and if the coach decides to take me to the European Championship, I could feel the game and get ready for the next and most important stage of the tournament”.
With the Eurobasket returning after five years, Nedovic admitts that this is going to be a historic event and wants to be part of it: “Yes, perhaps the best Eurobasket in history is waiting for us, certainly the best in the last decade or two. All teams come with very powerful rosters and there are a few favorites that stand out. As for us, we have the necessary experience to balance that ‘hype’ and maintain our focus, which I think is the most important thing at championships. We’ll go from game to game, so we’ll see. It sounds like a cliché, but that’s the way it should be. Our first obstacle is the Netherlands on Friday, after that we will think about each subsequent rival”.
