Just as their placement on the best tennis player lists improve and their earning increase after tournaments, the popularity of the tennis players among women also skyrockets.
Besides being regular topics in sports journals, the best world tennis players can be found on the pages of numerous tabloids. Celebrities such as Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Marat Safin, Rafael Nadal… have been the burning issue of tabloids for years, but our players are increasingly becoming the center of media attention. World media report that every girl that Novak meets is his girlfriend, while he denies everything and remains faithful to his girlfriend Jelena. Janko Tipsarevic has been well-known as a playboy until Biljana Sesevic won his heart. Zimonjic has recently married the former model Mina Knezevic expecting twins, while young Viktor Troicki and Ilija Bozoljac date different girls.
Considered by many experts as the best double player in the world, Nenad Zimonjic was one of the most popular Serbian bachelors not long ago. Namely, this summer Nenad tied the knot with the owner of the fashion agency “Tattoo” Mina Knezevic. The newly married couple are currently in America where Mina, seven months pregnant, will deliver twins. Before his marriage with Mina, it was often speculated that the popular Ziki was in a relationship with Goca Trzan, the Russian tennis player Elena Bovina…
Ilija Bozoljac (23) is making a very good progress on ATP list currently occupying the 152nd place. However, when it comes to love life of this tennis player, it seems that he doesn’t have much success. After several months of dating Anastasija Budjic, the member of the group “Models” and the participant of the “VIP Big Brother” show, he was in a relationship with the Canadian Miss Ramona Amiri, who even came to Belgrade to meet his parents, but they broke up several months later.
Frequently called “maratonman” by tennis experts, Janko Tipsarevic was a dream of many girls. However, he has been in a two-year-relationship with Biljana Sasevic, the former host of Novi Sad TV “Delta“, and now dealer of “Sun seeker“ yachts for Serbia. Biljana i Janko met at a tennis competition. Besides Biljana, other famous girls who could not resist Tipsarevic’s charm were the TV host Mila Arsic and Serbian Miss Jelena Pejic. It is also believed that Tipsa dated Sandra Sandra Melnichenko (Nikolic at the time), as well as the Croatian model Nina Moric.
Viktor Troicki is currently on the 66th place on the list of the best tennis players, but when it comes to girls, it seems that this twenty-two-year-old player is at the top. It can be easily concluded that he has special inclinations to models. After his break-up with Sofija Milosevic whom she dated for five months, Troicki found consolation in another model Suncica Travica, FHM model and promoter of the “Fashion TV“. Suncica and Viktor met in Paris at the Fashion Week. Before his relationship with Sofija, Viktor dated the student of tourism Ana Jovanovic.
Since Novak started winning the best world tennis players and reached the top of ATP list, interest of girls, as well as of media for his private life, has increased to a large extent. Novak has been in a stable relationship with Jelena Ristic for over two years, the management student in Milan. Nole uses every free moment to fly to Milan or Belgrade to meet Jelena and spend time with her far from the public eye. At the end of May, with help of friends and family, Jelena prepared a birthday party for Novak where Sasa Matic sang.
Novak has lately been connected with different sports women. First with Ana Ivanovic, than with the Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova, who at one of his games sat with his parents supporting him, after which it was speculated that there was something more than friendship between them. The last one mentioned related to Nole was the Paraguayan athlete Leryn Franco, who took a photograph with Nole during the Olympic Games.
Relationships of Nadal and Federer
Just as our tennis players are always in public eye when it comes to their girlfriends, the same is with the world tennis stars. One of the most attractive tennis players Marat Safin used to date the Russian Daria Zhukova, who left him because of the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The best American tennis player Andy Roddick got engaged with a model Brooklyn Decker, the world number one Rafael Nadal has been in a relationship for several years with Maria Francesca Perello, while the tennis king Roger Federer might have lost the first place on ATP list, but not his girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec.
