“Dear Anita, i take this opportunity to apologize to you personally, as well as my own club, which I hold in highest regard. My apologies also go to the widespread audience, who had witnessed the unsportsmanlike conduct I made last night. Unfortunately, my misconduct did not only serve to hurt myself, but many people I truly and deeply respect, including you. I am aware that my behavior was inexcusable, but I kindly ask you to accept my most sincere apology, and understand that I sincerely regret what I did. My behavior in the last night’s match did not do any justice to show the real me, and I am going to do whatever is in my power to prevent it from eventually undoing anything good I have ever done for sport. I am aware of the effort it’s going to take, but I am up to the challenge, just like I was many times before. I hope that this will make me into a stronger person, and that I will have the opportunity to show everyone the real Milena Knežević- a sportswomen who truly respects fair-play and lives and breathes this wonderful sport. “ Said Budućnost back-court player on her Facebook profile.
