It's official now - SRB (Serbia) and MNE (Montenegro) instead SCG (Serbia&Montenegro)

Couple months after Serbia and Montenegro is two separate (not one) countries and couple weeks after IOC strongly recommend to all sports asociations (including ITF, ATP & WTA) to use SRB or MNE instead old SCG - last week at ATP Madrid (Masters Series) and this week at WTA in Linz (tier II) this will be first time official used in some tennis tournaments.

Serbia have right now three very young and talented players (already world's TOP15!!!) Ivanovic, Jankovic and Djokovic, so dont be confused when you see SRB after they names or in FED, DAVIS or Hopman CUP tournaments for country name now or in future!



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)

FINALLY!!!!!! Go Serbian Players!

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena
