Serbia issues commemorative stamps for Davis Cup champions

Among the rules determining which people and subjects can be featured on a commemorative U.S. postal stamp: no living person may appear, no stamp will be issued for a deceased person until five years after their death and historical events can only be celebrated in multiples of 50 years.

Serbia has no such rules.

One day after the country's Davis Cup team earned the first title in the country's history, the joyous nation issued a commemorative stamp celebrating its "new sporting heroes." The stamp features action shots of the four players who led Serbia to the historic victory over the French: Novak Djokovic, Janko Tipsarevic, Viktor Troicki and Nenad Zimonjic.
