Diplomatic passport for Djokovic

Belgrade - Serbian authorities on Monday issued diplomatic passports to its top tennisplayers, saying it would allow them easier traveling.

Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic handed the passports over to the Serbian men's team which, led by Novak Djokovic - won the nation's first-ever Davis Cup in December.

Serbia's two leading tennis ladies, Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, both of whom briefly topped the WTA list, also received diplomatic passports.

After years of facing restrictive visa requirements in virtually all Western countries, Serbian nationals have been facing more relaxed criteria since most of the European Union allowed them visa- free entry in late 2009.
