Top players siblings???

do you know who have a brother or sister, how many of them etc? I was always curious about it and I know only that Venus and Serena have 2 or 3 sisters.

Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza

Re: Top players siblings???

Lena D. has a brother, Seva, who is an engineering student, or most likely an engineer. He was a good tennis player as a junior, and sometimes coaches her (actually, some of her best results have come with him as a coach.

Nastya is an only child, which may explain a lot.

Re: Top players siblings???

I think a commentator at the US Open said Djokovic has a brother who is supposed to be better than him.

However I have never heard it mensioned again so I'm not 100% sure
