The rise of Jankovic and Ivanovic
 
Hey,
I was just thinking does any body know a short kind of personal bibliography of how the two girls got so far.
People think Serbia is wealthy country because its in Europe, but when I left it in 1999 it looked very economicaly poor and the future of individual sport such as tennis seemed imposible.
I was just wondering does anybody have any interviews from Ana's or Jelena's parents. They seem to be so quiet, I have yet to see some sort of comment from the Ivanovic or Jankovic family, considering both girls are becoming huge WTA stars.
So how did these girls manage to finance their tennis and get to where they are, they wern't "Australian Made" like Dokic.
I think it's very interesting to discuss.

I know that JJ developed in florida at Bolletieri academy. Ai was training in belgrade only. This could be why she wasn't dominant in juniors and it kept her more of a secret too. :lol:
