Huge Night in Serbian Sports

Serbia tied France 1-1 in the Group 7 World Cup Qualifying match tonight to maintain their four point advantage over France in the group. Serbia has two games left and a win in one of them, clinches a spot. On a side note, former Yugoslavian republics Slovenia, Bosnia-Hergovina, and Croatia are all currently second in their respective qualifying groups. I wonder if a Yugoslavia team would be a powerhouse with an All-Star selection from those teams?

Novak Djokovic defeated Spaniard Fernando Verdasco to make it again to the US Open Tennis Championship Semifinals in New York. He won in four sets and waits to take on either Federer or Soderling, in what may be a classic match.

And finally, Serbia defeated Finland 3-0 in the Men’s European Volleyball Championship in Turkey tonight. They are in the playoff round and play Holland tomorrow night.
