Serbia’s Tennis Federation President Resigned

BNP Paribas 2011 Masters Tennis Tournament
The long standing power battle in Serbian tennis between the existing hierarchy and the Djokovic family has taken another twist with the news Slobodan ‘Bobo’ Zivojinovic has resigned as the president of the Balkan nation’s tennis federation.
Pressure has been mounting on Zivojinovic for much of the last year and his decision will be announced formally at a Serbian Tennis Federation meeting scheduled for November 24. According to Serbian media reports Zivojinovic will be replaced by Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic.
Former top-ranked player Zivojinovic has been at odds with Djokovic’s father Srdjan after Serbia won the Davis Cup late last year. Djokovic Senior maintained Zivojinovic did little to help the careers of his son or other Serbian players.
Zivojinovic reportedly said he was resigning because of his obligations with the International Tennis Federation and its Davis Cup committee.
