Have three brothers ever been in the Top Ten??

According to the Novak interview on iTunes, he's got two younger brothers training to be pro's.

I can just about remember there being three Maleeva sisters - Manuela, Katerina and Magdalena, but has there ever been three brothers? Can't remember any myself.

What a story that would be, if Novak and his brothers were the top three in the world??

Sounds in the interview as though he wouldn't like to have to beat up on them!

Djordje is much younger (he's about 11) so it's rather unlikely that he and Nole would be active on the pro tour at around the same time. Marko will be 16 this year, he still plays juniors I think.

Why not??

When Djorde is Novak's age, Novak will only be 27. That's not old for a tennis player, particularly one as wiry as Novak. He's got longevity in him.

Particularly when you hear him in this interview, you can tell he's got the right attitude.

He's in love with the game by the sounds of it.

I reckon there's a real chance of it myself.

Only hope we're not sitting here in 8 years time wondering whether Novak is letting his little brothers win!

Hahaha!

If they've got half the personality he's got, we'll be alright.

Anyone see his speech after Indian Wells. Hilarious.

Makes me laugh on the Podcast when he says 'they had better know to respect the older brother!'
