First of all, I want to apologize for not posting for a few days. I was very tired because of a busy night life – there is a huge music festival going on in my hometown of Novi Sad, Serbia. Tonight I’m also going to the festival, but I’ve managed to have enough sleep today, thank God.
Here’s a story waiting to be published for quite some time. It may sound pathetic, but what can I do. I’m a huge tennis fan, and my mom gets the chance to meet a top tennis player.
Here’s what happened: My mother was at the Belgrade airport the morning after the three Serbian players (Ivanovic, Jankovic, and Djokovic) had been welcomed by thousands of people in front of the parliament in Belgrade due to their huge success at Roland Garros (remember that?). After a really short time spent at her birth city of Belgrade, Jelena Jankovic flew to Birmingham to play DFS Classic (which she happened to win, defeating Maria Sharapova in the final!).
My mom immediately recognized Jankovic and approached her. They chatted a little, and my mother congratulated her the fantastic results. Jelena was very kind, and right away accepted to take a photo with my mom (the woman wearing glasses) and her colleague. It was nice of Jelena to have been so friendly, because she can’t even imagine how her small gesture can brighten someone’s day, maybe even a week.
To conclude, I’m glad for my mother, but, why wasn’t I there?
