Recent results have confirmed that Serbia continues to shine and dominate the worlds of basketball and tennis, producing MVPs under the hoops and possibly tennis’s G.O.A.T.

The country’s national women’s basketball team defeated France 63:54 in the Women’s EuroBasket final in Valencia, Spain, while the squad’s top player, Sonja Vasić, received a personal award to add to the title of European champion when she was declared EuroBasket MVP. The victory over favourites France saw Serbia’s ladies become Women’s EuroBasket champions for the second time.

Meanwhile, tennis’s World No. 1, Novak Đoković, completed a huge turnaround in the French Open’s Roland Garros final, coming back from two sets down to overcome Stefanos Tsitsipas and lift his second Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy. Apart from earning his 19th Grand Slam title, the victory also sealed an historic first for Đoković, who has become the only player in the history of the Open Era to have won all four Grand Slam tournaments at least twice.

And the historic results don’t end there! Returning to basketball, this time the men’s game, Serbia earned two major individual honours and recorded a world first when the titles of MVP of the world’s two strongest basketball leagues went to players from the same country for the first time. Namely, Serbia and Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokić was declared MVP of America’s NBA, while his compatriot and Anadolu Efes ace, Vasilije Micić, was declared MVP of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. Interestingly, Jokić and Micić are expected to compete against one another in the NBA next season, where they will undoubtedly add to Serbia’s already enviable sporting reputation.
