'Hung' Up on Slobodan Zivojinovic

Although blogging inevitably leads to a lot of hecklers, it's the thoughtful readers who make it all worthwhile, like this gentlemen who saw that I included Slobodan Zivojinovic on my list of the 100 Hottest Male Tennis Players of the Open Era. Something tells me I'd have ranked him much higher than No. 51 had I know this!

Subject: HA read your blog about Slobodan Zivojinovic
I was a USTA linesperson calling lines at the River Oaks Red Clay tourney in Houston when I first saw him in action--mid 80's maybe. I was supposed to be calling lines for Aaron Krickstein and whoever he was playing but BOBO was in the adjacent court. Not only the biggest dick, probably in Tennis History but he wore nothing under those poly shorts. He had an extremely distracting habit of hopping up and down when receiving. His dick, which had to be 7 thick and heavy inches soft, had a life of its own in there--Long after he stopped moving IT was still bouncing nearly dropping below the hem of his shorts on the downswing (they were short shorts!) . He also had an ass that was definition of 'high and tight'. AS distracting going as coming. Fortunately the head Ump was a Dyke and she had some insight and perhaps "sympathy" for my dilemma. After a McEnroe worthy tirade from Aaron, aimed my way for a deservedly bad call, she pulled me off lines whenever Zivojinovic was "in play". Obviously my calling lines for bodan was not even on the table :-) 
Those days tennis players weren't under tight security, and showers, saunas etc were available for all working an event like River Oaks. Bobo knew exactly just how "talented" he was and he had no hesitation to let the rest of the world know it too. He paraded that thing around the lockers in no hurry to even wrap a towel around himself--giving a whole new definition to "Big Swinging Dick". EVERYONE, noticed--pretty imposible not to. Especially the other competing pros** took particular care NOT to seem to notice--but they all did. I remember leaving at about 8:30 and Slobodan who wasn't at all known was by himself, with all his gear, waiting for a cab--probably to some motel. How hard was it not to offer him a ride to anywhere he might want to go! My home was 5 minutes away. lol Major events like US Open and Wimbledon they simply would let him swing that thing free for National Broadcast. NO VIDEO RECORDS! Favorite Player is Now NOLE and there has been some controversy between the Djokovic family and Slobodan over Davis cup. He sure didn't keep his looks--but he WAS once an incredible petty boy (all 6'6" of him), sexy, funny, super butch in a boyish way--and YES Dick of Death which he showed off fully aware but also with a kind of innocence. Married some real skank and quickly went to pot. Total waste.
**River Oaks is normally a very exclusive Private Lawn and Tennis club.  
At 50, Bobo isn't much to look at. But it appears that "real skank" gave him an awfully hot son:

I always wondered what happened to Bobo, and now I know.

He used to partner Boris Becker in the doubles at Wimbledon but time moves on and people get fat.

Never mind.

I of course meant to say that major Broadcast, especially the Slams would NOT let Bobo swing free for their viewing audience. Back in those days they didn't need extra incentive to engage a US audience for Tennis. Today they might see things differently. :-)

I was overly harsh calling Mrs Bobo a skank. Actually she was a famous serb folk singer--maybe a little skanky around the edges but seems Slobo was actually the slut in the family. That means there should be pictures somewhere...right?
