Zivojinovic resigns as Serbia’s tennis chief

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.
