“This is a huge honor. I am proud and humbled to become the first-ever Tennis Hall of Famer from Croatia,” Ivanisevic said. “I am grateful to the committee for selecting me for this honor and so thankful to the fans who supported me in the Fan Vote and throughout my entire career, especially so many great fans in Croatia. I am honored and excited to become a Hall of Famer.”
Croatia has always had amazing tennis players that climbed the ATP list with their hard work and made some incredible results.
Goran Ivanišević is definitely one of the top tennis players not only in Croatia but in the world, especially by winning the Wimbledon in 2001.
The other nominees for this prestigious role were Thomas Muster, Sergi Bruguera, Jevgenij Kafelnikov, Jonas Bjorkman, Conchita Martinez,Mary Pierce and Na Li. The final decision will be known in January and we sure hope Goran will enter the Hall of Fame because he truly deserves it.
