Re: Serbian HALL OF FAME

Great statistics and great effort.

I think Jecmenica and Nacuk were top100 for sure...

Ana Ivanovic

Jelena Jankovic

Vojislava Lukic

Good luck to: Davenport, Srebotnik, Kirilenko, Kostanic, Mirza and Serbian DC squad (Djokovic, Tipsarevic, Zimonjic, Bozoljac, Pashanski and Troicki)

Mima Jausovec is from Slovenia and also she played only for former (big) Yugoslavia.

Here is only players which played for Serbia (and Montenegro) part of former Yugoslavia after "Big Yugoslavia" crash in 1991 and reach in some point of they's career TOP5 when represent that country.

Also, for greate tennis nations (like USA and Serbia ) you must be atleast WTA TOP5 in some moment if you want to be in Hall of Fame. That is reason why here is not place for solid TOP100 players like Jecmenica or Nacuk.

Did you notice that whole Asia (1), Africa (1) and South America (1) altogheter have less TOP5 players in history (3) than litle Serbia (4) ???

Monica
Jelena J.
Ana
Jelena D.

Re: Serbian HALL OF FAME

In terms of achievements, positions 1 and 4 are no-brainers. The situation is not so clearcut though between Jelena and Ana on positions 2-3. Some statistics would probably help in determining who's currently got the edge between them two, but all that may change in just a weeks time, that's how even they are...

As for the top 5 count, I assume you've added Seles to both Serbia and USA since she was top 5 representing both countries?

Novak Djokovic - AO 2008 champion
Ana Ivanovic - FO 2008 champion
Jelena Jankovic - USO 2008 finalist

Yes, but she was top 5 for USA as well, so my question was if she is counted twice for that reason. Also, I think the same might apply for Navratilova, but I'm not sure whether she reached top 5 before she switched to USA...

Yes, Monica counted for both - Serbia and USA, because in both cases she reach TOP5 position, and this is only case like this because for example Dokic best ranking when played for Australia is #26 and i think that Navratilova go in USA in 1975 from Czechoslovakia couple months before first WTA ranking list in history, and also Mandlikova is out of TOP5 (but still in TOP15) when go in Australia two years before retire...

WTA-Russia (Sharapova, Kuznetsova) - since april 2007
