I think is not fair to count for Serbia only players who played in last 15 months after 600.000 Montenegro separating. Seles (1), Dokic (4) and Jecmenica (72) representing in one part of they career (that means after 1991) Serbia (and Montenegro) part of former Yugoslavia. That means Serbia have 4 TOP5 players in past , not only 2 TOP100 like you present .

CORRECT IS: Befeore 1991 Yugoslavia, after 1991 - Slovenia; Croatia; Serbia (and Montenegro); (also Bosnia; Macedonia; but they never have TOP100 players).

That means is not correct to count players who played for Serbia (and Montenegro) between 1991-2006 like YUGOSLAVIA players!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
