The World’s Best Sporting Nation Is Serbia

Yes, Serbia, despite a population of 10 something million is the world’s best sporting nation. We don’t have oil, but we have balls and the best players. Yesterday, World’s No. 1 Novak Đoković won his third Australia open title, beating Spain’s Rafael Nadal 3-2 in a dramatic and exhaustive six hour match in Melbourne. The same day, Serbian national water polo team won European championship in Holland, beating Montenegro 9-8. And again, the same day, the national handball team took the silver in the European Handball Championship final. Tens of thousands of fans (20.000 including me) gave a heroes’ welcome to their national sports heroes in front of Belgrade city hall on Monday evening in sub-zero temperatures. Thank you so much, so proud of you guys…

Well… I am living in Beograd and I love Beograd: people, atmosphere and way to live…. after years living in Sydney when I arrived here I started to breath again….. again I felt my beloved latin way to live and again I enjoyed with not boring people who value friendship and make the most of the day, the night….and the life….

    I watched the match Nadal-Djokovic with Serbian and Spanish friends here in Beograd…we really enjoyed it….
