What might of been. The Former Yugoslavia.

Well everyone is aware of the war in 1991 that split up Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia. The war was really about nothing, but thats not what this thread is about, its about what could of been in tennis if it was still Yugoslavia

Goran Ivanisevic, Ivan Ljubicic, Mario Ancic,Ivo Karlovic, Novak Djokovic, Amer Delic, Janko Tipsarevic, Danial Nester(dubs,)Nenad Zimonjic (dubs), Iva Majoli, Monica Seles, Ana Ivanovic, Up and coming Jr. Marin Cilic(RG Champ).

Could of had nice Davis Cup team- for years to come with Ljubicic,Ancic and Djokovic and doubles with Nester and Zimonjic.

But it will never happen, because of nothing.

dont even get me started on soccer.

Why bother? Last thing I heard, the Croatian Davis Cup Team is doing pretty well!

And let's do get started on "soccer"! The sport is called football. Soccer is just a name Americans came up with because they, in their eternal wisdom, decided to use the word football for a game which is played for 95 percent by hand and which uses an advocadoe-shaped object rather than a ball.
The British, who are of course the inventors of the sport, aptly named it football, a term which does the great sport justice and which we should all use!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

I look at the players these countries are producing and I can't help feeling how shit our British system is. Croatia with population 5 million, Serbia 10 million, Czech 10 million, Slovakia 5 million are each producing as many, if not, more top tennis players than UK population 60 million.
I have so much respect for these countries How do they do it?

Well, Danial Nester may represent Yugoslavia but Daniel Nestor will almost represent Canada.

If anything it's disrespectful to snark on those who happen to call it "soccer". It's not like Americans, Canadians, and whoever else happens to call it "soccer" (Aussies?) are now a lower form of being for this slight. It's truly not a big deal so long as we all know what is being talked about.

Re: What might of been. The Former Yugoslavia.

Pfffft, you forgot Jelena Dokic . She has achieved a hell of a lot more than everyone listed (in singles) except for 3 : Seles, Ivanisevic, and Majoli.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
