Yes but there were other Serbs e.g. the guy who played doubles in DC with Zimonjic who are much higher ranked in singles and I'm sure would love a chance to play in their country too. I get that the Djokovics own the tournament but at some point this becomes overindulgence... Hope this is the last year and then others are given a chance.
Without Novak this tournament really struggles - players have chosen Munich and Estoril despite those having stronger fields - I always find that odd in some ways - they'd rather go where the bigger cheque is and perhaps a more convenient location (Germany/Portugal) than where they have a better chance of making it deep in the draw...
Are you talking about Bozoljac? He lost in qualifying pretty easily to a nobody so I don't think he'd have done much better than old Marko in the main draw but yeah obviously he's more deserving of the wildcard. Anyway, my point was that Marko wasn't the only Serbian in the draw, Lajovic who is one of Serbia's better upcoming prospects it would seem, took advantage of his WC opportunity.
I think Marko needs to get off the court and go to college or if he wants to kid himself, kid himself in the futures/challengers. These WC's are getting embarrassing for everyone involved I'm afraid, even if there is only one or two a year. Although the ironic thing is, with his ranking it's not even that easy for him to get into futures, challengers. He got turned down for some WC request in Turkey. So getting into ATP tournaments can in some unique cases be easier
