Serbian tennis players Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Novak Djokovic and Nenad Zimonjic (?) will arrive in Belgrade on Sunday.

They will receive a special welcome (thanks to their great results at the Roland Garros 2007) in front of the building Stari Dvor at 20.30 CET!

See how it looked when Marija Serifovic won Eurovision:

There were 70.000 people!

I was about to ask: "would Ana make it back in time?" then I remembered that her final is today :o

That looks amazing, Milan! They're national heroes!

Are you sure? Zimonjic already plays in Halle, Nole will play Queens and Jelena Birmingham this week (don`t know about Ana). Will they go from France to GB via Serbia? :confused:

I hope it won't be like the last time.

After he won Miami it was so badly organized that almost no one knew that there was a welcome at all!!!

See you there!!

That's not the best thing for their tennis. :unsure: but they must know what they're doing... but switching surfaces, they should get on the grass as soon as they possibly can.

Yeah that's what I thought too. But guess they should have their moment to enjoy their success for a bit ;)

Great information!!! We'll be there!
BUT WHY DO THEY EXCLUDE TIPSAREVIC FROM THE STORY???
He needs that kind of support,and not feel as if he is less worth...
He hasn't achieved that result,but still...he beat Hewitt and Safin,was so close to winning matches against Roddick in Wimbledon and Nalbandian in Melbourne...
WE NEED TO SHOW HIM WE CARE ABOUT HIM!!!

SEE YOU TOMORROW!

They've got to crank up the hype machine to make sure the fill up the Arena in September.

Novak won't play until Wednesday, so if he gets to London on Sunday night, that should be fine.

This is what I wrote in JJ thread on wtaworld.comIt was great...actually I didn't read this thread unfortunatly..on time to give u the link. It was broadcasted live on
http://www.rts.co.yu/rts1uzivo.ram , maybe they will put it in archive or something.
There was roughly 50.000 - 80.000 people. Jelena, Novak and Ana were there, and while ladies were quite confused, Jelena specially, she was blushing and smiling all the time, and couldn't make one sentence:), Nole was quite good, they got out on the City Hall terrace, covered with Serbian flag, they tried to sing "Molitva", the song that won on this year Eurovision song, but they were mostly laughing and blushing. At the end, all of them said something that they are proud, and thank everybody that came that evening. City Hall terrace wellcome was almost exclusevly reserved for Basketball, Volleyball and Waterpolo teams, so Ana, Jelena and Novak were quite honoured and proud to be there...and they promised that they will come very soon on this very place after Wimbldone....That should be my journalistic view, I hope u got a picture. Pictures will come very soon

I hope u got a better picture

Thanks so much for the pics :hug:

I'm so proud of them. It's great to see them on that famous balcony (so long reserved for team sports only). I loved how confused they were not expecting that many people.

This country needs something or someone to be proud of and make us smile. Thanks to Novak, Ana, Jelena, and of course Janko, Nenad and others we do have a great reason now. :D

Thanks :worship:

thank you sooooooooooo much once again,Milan:kiss: :kiss: :kiss: !it was so emotoinal to watch the vids!it must have been a unforgettable experiance for all of them!the girls looked so excited,they were kind of speechless,Ana couldn`t even smile the way she usually does and Jelena couldn`t say a few words without losing her voice again!Nole was the only one who stayed calmer and helped the girls to feel more comfortable there,too!it was great to see him making the promise that in the next 2 or 3 years one of them will win a Grand Slam title(why not making it 2 or 3 weeks-Wimbledon!:p )!Nole and Jelena did some great singing while Ana was looking at the crown just to believe that it was true!all of them were so cute!but i regret that Nole trew his T-shirt of Serbia,i loved the way it looked on him espacially with the shirt under it:hearts: :drool: :inlove: !let`s hope h`ll be given a new one!and he really scared me to death when he stepped up at the end of the balcon:scared: !!!he`s so lucky that the gods love him and take care of him!anyway GOOD LUCK to Ana,Jelena,Nenad,Janko,Nole of course and all the other Serbian players for Wimbledon!i know it can be even more successful for you than RG!:worship:

I especially liked their version of "Molitva", and how they managed to put Nadal and Federer in it!!!And for those of you who don't know- the guy Nole sang with was Sergej Trifunovic,a very famous Serbian actor! :)
