He played quali's and lost 6-4 6-2 to Ouanna. I believe he is born in 1995, never seen him play though.

Hmm, Djordje handed a breadstick to Vianello. Must be GOAT in the making. I do like that the first three letters of his first name and also the first three letters of his last name. We can call him Djo-Djo, or Jo-Jo for short.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

He has a fantastic first name. Couldn't believe it when I first heard of him. Djo-Djo sounds great and if he should fail or when he's retired we could always call him Dodo

Since they are both male, they must have both gotten the Y chromosome from their father. So they have at least 1 chromosome in common

Krajinovic should have gotten the Wc instead of Marko imo, but we all know that will never happen. Once the younger brother gets old enough Lajovic WC will go to him, and then the Nole family will be hogging 2/3 WC

I hear Marko might opt to go to uni instead. Depends on how things pan out this season. It's a shame really, I would have been really cool having three bothers in the top 100.

Yeah, sorry you're right, they have to have at least one in common What I was saying is only possible with a brother and sister. Oh well, the tennis talent was obviously in the other chromosomes that they didn't share

Not wanting to start ridiculous rumours etc, but it is possible for someone to externally have features of one gender whilst internally the complete opposite is true. So I would not withdraw whatever assumption you made just yet if I were you. I mean as it is Marko is playing WTA standard tennis so you never know

Marko doesn't seem to have improved much since I saw him playing Di Mauro here a couple of years back (indisputably the worst tennis match of all time).

Marco will never do anything significant in tennis. We all know it. Well, his big bro has enough money to support him, so good for him. A little Djordje is much more interesting to me.

Re: Belgrade R1: Volandri def. [WC] M. Djokovic 6-3 6-1

They should stop giving him WCs - it's getting embarrassing now - only Serb in the main draw and he's ranked in the 800s.

He must know by now he has no chance to have a career even in Challengers - all these WCs are taking spots away from other young Serbs like Krajinovic. Surprised Novak didn't even stick around in Belgrade to support the tournament & cheer on his brothers. Think the chances of this tournament stays a 250 5 years from now are pretty low...

Hopefully the fate of the tournament doesn't hang on whether Nole is around or no. Maybe even better like this

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
