Fav. ex Yu player

Favourite ex Yugoslavian player....
Hmmmm...just for the record didn't put Monica Seles because she's never felt as a Yugoslavian, and she doesn't have Yugo. blood (she is Hungarian)...

Goran Ivanisevic
Slobodan Zivojinovic

erm, what exactly is "yugo blood"? and for how many generations back do you need to check if someone has it or not?

This thread have very stupid introduction of thread-starter because EX-Yugoslavia have only one super tennis player in her history (actualy ex-YU have Nikola Pilic in 60'-70's and Mima Jausevac RG winner in 70's but nobody from this forum is not that old to remember they play, and ex #19 ATP Slobodan Zivoinovic from 80's is not much greate player) and that is Monica Seles ! Goran Ivanisevic play for ex-Yugoslavia only when hi have 17 years (after 1990 hi play for Croatia), and Majoli, Ljubicic, Dokic, Ancic, Srebotnik, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Djokovic... is too young and never play for this ex-Country!

For your information Monica Seles go to Florida (to Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy) with her family (pater coach and old brother manager) in 1986 when she have only 13 years and take USA citizenship in 1994 - year when she dont play any match (after that Hamburg incident in 1993), and when ex-Yugoslavia already not exsist and when her part of Yugoslavia (Novi Sad - Vojvodina - Serbia - ex SRJ/SCG) have rigorous UN sanctions and all our citizens who live in other countries have large problems because that. She win 8 slams, 3 YEC and more than 30 titles with Yugoslavia flag and only one slam for USA!

And WTF is Yugo. blood - that thing is never exsist!? Ex Yugoslavia is tipical multi-ethnic country (Serbs, Croats, Slovenians, Macedonians...etc) and her family is not some imigrants from Hungary - ethnic Hungarians live in city of Novi Sad and Serbian province Vojvodina about last 1,000 years (and right now about 350.000 live there)...

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)

5.Katarina Srebotnik Slovenia
6.Tina Krizan Slovenia
7.Karolina Sprem Croatia

it will always be monica no doubt and she is ethnically hungarian but is not some hungarian immigrant as you insinuated . She was born and grew up in Novi Sad, her first coach was Jelena Gencic who was an old school player and started many other players from serbia such as Djokovic and she grew up idolizing Mima Jausovec who was a first slam winner for yugoslavia in '70's. But if you mean active, I only like Ivanovic and Srebotnik with Ivanovic having grand slam potential which she has not yet materialised
