They are most certainly of Serbian descent though.
Radivojevič is Serbian on his dad´s side, but his mom is Slovak.

I was thinking about their descent, not nationality.

But if you ask Lucic if he is Serbian, he would say yes.

I doubt that. He's born and raised in Canada.

Well, I played against him a few times and he's a Serb. He considers himself Canadian too, but he's without a doubt Serbian.

Is Croation another word for someone with french heritage? Or is it on his mother's side? Marcou is a very french name.
