It's Naćuk, not Načuk

I think Teja has a great chance to be the next one

Drug, Monica (not Monika) is not Serbian. She is born in Novi Sad but is Magyar

At that time 1990-93, she had a Jugoslavijan passport but refused to play Fed Cup so never commit for her supposed country what costed her Olympics in 1992.


When coming back from being assaulted in 1995 she had an American passport.

Re: Serbia's best players of all time (who reached top 200 in singles)

I know, but she played under Yugoslav passport until 1993. It makes her more a Serb than Montenegrin (since she was born in Novi Sad) and has never played for Hungary.

On Serbian is Monika Seleš (English Monica Seles, Hungarian Monika Szeles I think)

If the girl doesn't consider herself as Jugoslavijan (even when they tried to make her play Fed Cup), you shouldn't put her in your list.

It is an honour to be a Serbian sportswoman (as well as a Croatian or a Bengali dont get me wrong) and if you split on a country like she did, it is not a good thing to melt her with people behaving well.

Then Jugoslavija was a country and you cannot pick what you are interested in there to claim it as Serbian (moreover when it isn't) because it is an open door to be bullshited.

Re: Serbia's best players of all time (who reached top 200 in singles)

In 2016 we have another new Serbian player which reached TOP200, plus one who improve hers personal high ranking in singles:
...
11. Ivana Jorović (134)
12. Nina Stojanović (140)
...

Also, I recommend thread creator to add on OP special separate list of notable (former TOP50) international WTA players with Serbian origins:

1. Andrea Petković (9) GER
2. Kristina Mladenović (27) FRA
3. Viktorija Golubić (53) SUI** [she still never reached TOP50 and she is half Serbian]

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)
