Has WTA ever been this efficient-Dokic already ranked as Aussie

from #5 SCG player to #11 Aussie!

What will happen if she changes her mind again!

she joins her fellow naturalised Serbs- Dragana Jakovljevic, Branka Savic as well as other Ex-Yugoslavians: Beti Sekulovski, Dubravka Cupac, Julija Dziedzic, Bojana Bobusic, Andrea Lipovska and Dijana Srbinoska! and Dominikovic sisters

pathetic statistics really, almost 1/2 of Aussies ranked players are naturalised!

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

Most of those players including Cupac, Sekulovski and the Dominikovic sisters were born in Australia. They are not naturalised Aussies as you so put it (just like me, born in Australia to Greek parents, and I consider myself Australian).

yes the Australian Tennis Federation just decided to set it sights on these former Yugoslavian players. It had nothing to do with the fact that their parents wanted to avoid being blown up or ethnically cleansed

Australians cannot produce their own players so take another nations players. Seems logical. I wonder when the USA takeover Maria Sharapova.

If you cannot produce your own take somebody elses.

it still pathetic for a country that big to have 2/3 of it's ranked players that are other origin. That means they cannot produce it's own players, but have to look in greek/polish/serbian/croat/macedonian communities !!!!!!! And for someone to be an actual citizen it usually counts three generations to be born in that country so if anyone of these players grandparents are born there, then ok!

Australia may be big in area but has only 20 million people. Also, it's quite clear that you're just bitter because Jelena has left Serbia!

Yeh Australia has a pretty small population. Most of Australia is unlivable desert.
& yes, like the poster above said, you are just bitter.
It's obvious Jelena is much happier so you should be happy for her. If you only liked her cause she was a fellow countrywoman then that says alot.

yes,m because Australia really is a land of migrants... so? The other half of the AUssie players would probably have European or Asian backgrounds too...

That's a load of bull - most players were born in Australia, even if they have the background of Yugoslavian or whatever... so we didn't "take" then from somewhere, their parents or grandparents MOVED HERE of their own accord.
