Hall of Fame
isnt it wierd that all the top croat players....lubicic,ancic,karlovic and ivanisavic have -ic at the end of the name...and that they r all over 6'5 with huger serves
Not people from Macedonia, Kosovo and region of Sumadija.erdega79 said:Most of the surnames/last names in ex yugoslavia apart from macedonia and most of slovenia end with "IC" , pronounced "ITCH". It's a diminutive of a name and it's fairly recognizable. My last name is Erdeg and it has some hungarian and slovakian origings. But I also think that many people are getting creative with their names in order to differentiate themselves.
With that said I think in general ex yugoslavian countries have disproportinate number of tall people . Where I live the norm is around 185cm or 6"1' with many people over 2m or 7" . They just play basketball and not tennis
With that said, croatia used to produce good basketball players but it seems like most of tall guys choose sports other than basket these days
Dedans Penthouseovic replies: please check out the 2nd paragraph in the following url:Andres Guazzelli said:According to Guinnes World Records, a tribe in Africa has the tallest people of all countries.
The tallest major tribe in the world is the Tutsi (also known as the Watussi) tribe of Rwanda and Burundi, Central Africa, whose young adult males average 1.83 m (6 ft). The Tutsi are found mainly in Rwanda and Burundi.
To top that? I'm 1.92 m. I already top that :mrgreen:Dedans Penthouse said:Dedans Penthouseovic replies: please check out the 2nd paragraph in the following url:
Did ya read that Andres? [size=+1]1.84 [/size]
Top that! Argenteeny-weenie!!! j.k. LOL!!!
Seriously, though there are "tribes" (e.g. Masai in Tanzania & Kenya) that are taller, the Dutch constitute the tallest in term of "country" and since "Croatia" was bandied about, I assumed it to mean "which country?" had the tallest. Must be 'windmill power' that's responsible.
Hantuchova is slovakian, not russianLleyton Hewitt said:its just like most of russians sharapova hantuchova dementieva petrova....all end in va
