Ilie Nastase & Ion Tiriac

Vasja Mihelcic had an honour to talk and meet two of the greatest tennis legends, inseparable friends and “trouble makers” who inspire many new generations to follow their steps. Ilie Năstase and Ion Țiriac are humble and grounded man that started from the bottom. In the old days of tennis and their beginning they slept under the blue sky as they couldn’t afford accommodation before the tennis tournament…They really believed and hoped that one day a better life awaits them. Their dedication, talent and love for the game soon payed off, as Ilie Năstase become first Romanian No. 1 in the world and got a status of celebrity and made his fortune. Ion Țiriac become one of the most successful business man in the world and manager of many tennis players. They both have to thank tennis for their life.
