Zivojinovic resigns as Serbia's tennis chief

BY foxsports • November 10, 2011

Serbian state television reports that Serbia tennis federation president Slobodan Zivojinovic has resigned following a disagreement with Novak Djokovic's family.

The decision will be announced at a federation meeting scheduled for Nov. 24 according to the report and Zivojinovic will be replaced by Serbia's Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic.

Former top-ranked player Zivojinovic had fallen out with Djokovic's father after Serbia won the Davis Cup last year. The father of the top-ranked Djokovic had said 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.
