Vakulenko applies for SPANISH citizenship!

MARCA, the most important sport newspaper in Spain has announce that Julia Vakulenko (World Nŗ 41), born in Ukraine is applying to get the spanish citizenship.
Julia has lived a lot of years in Barcelona, has competed in spanish national championships by team and who knows, maybe one day can play for the spanish fed cup team.

Her former stepfather is from Montenegro and when she younger she lives in Belgrade several years (junior national champion couple times). With her like back-up player Serbian FED CUP team will qualify in WG1 without problems when Dokic started to play for us or when only one of Ana/JJ played and Serbia will reach probably atleast one final in last 2-3 seasons.

But our tennis association before clash of former Serbian regime (in 2000) dont doing anything to help young talents and Julia is not exception and she and her mother simple use first good offer and chance to escape from here at other place (to Spain) b/c extremly bad conditions in that time.

But she will be also very helpfull now to Spanish FED CUP team. With her, Spain will be one of 10 countries with 2 TOP50 players (Medina and Vakulenko), together with one of best current "national" doubles teams (Medina-Pascual).

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)

Yeah, I know about that and in fact, I'm the one who found his creepy blog entry about her and posted it here.

I am keeping an eye on him, now.

She was never my favorite, but still this is bad news for Ukrainian Fed Cup team.
