hehe... Raonic is Canadian... he was 2 years old when he arived... speaking of origin of plazers is ... lol...
Fed also has double nationality or citizenship ( not sure what is correct )... but nobody is talking about South African Maestro ...
I was always cheering for Ljubo, Ancic, Karlovic... there is no place for politics there... simply all players from ex Yougoslavia are somehow close...

Sure Zare, but that's not politics. Right. I am a mother to two Americans. But they are Serbs of Serbian parents.
NatashaO, you know better than that ;)

I remember once it was maybe two years ago when Nole was presented with one of his trophies, I can't remember now where it was, but they made an announcement Mr. Jokovic from CROATIA!!! :)..ahahaha...don't tell me Zare that this is the SAME? I know people were really pissed off here...:))

and as for Raonic, believe me I know what I am talking about...I even know his uncle and his whole family...it is a small country you know...:)

@natashao

didn't Djokovic corrected speaker and told it is "the same" :)

Raonic appearance more than anything says that he is more Montenegrian than Canadian ["pravi djetic"], but flag defines him more than origins ;( Kelly is right
