Ana won the eddie her junior international at 13 years old :eek:, and this year took eventual junior wimbeldon winner Kirst Flipkens to 3 sets. I think she will be the next big thing for Yugoslavia after Dokic.

Matea's not a Jr. anymore, easy to forget as she missed virtually all of '02 with a knee injury. Last I knew she was kicking around the 10K-25K level, but ask Eggy on that. K'lina is obviously now in "breakout mode" and "Jelefty" has been on the main tour awhile. Frankly, I think the ex-YUG Feds should collaborate on a world-class facility that might host a tournament as well as training. The Adriatic resort of Dubrovnik would seem 2B ideal for this, as tennis tourists could patronize it most of the year ala Saddlebrook in Florida (home of the Hopman Academy, of course).

Slovenia ain't doing too badly either with three girls in the Top 50 this year - Katarina Srebotnik, Maja Matevzic and Tina Pisnik. Let's hope there are some good junior players to follow them.

Come to think of it, Slovenia is doing better than Croatia and Yugoslavia. There are no players in the Top 50 from Croatia, and only Jelena Dokic from Yugoslavia.

Then again, after Srebotnik, Matevzic and Pisnik, there is no player of note until Petra Rampre and Tina Hergold, whereas Croatia and Yugoslavia can boast a few more talented players.

Screw the #'s in the Top 50, not counting present Juniors, K'lina IS Balkans tennis re. Top 10, etc. (maybe even Slam potential). Yeah, the Stateless Person might get back in the Top 10; or just as easily out of the Top 30. (Don't worry, Jeca, you can model or something, Uber-Babes are always in demand; 'cept in Oz, maybe)! :eek:
