Goran Ivanisevic's West Brom love affair - In pictures

Sport | Published:

He became a fan in 2005 when West Brom performed the Great Escape and tennis player Goran Ivanisevic has followed them ever since.

The 2001 Wimbledon champion saw his first ever Albion game when they drew 1-1 with QPR in 2011.

After stepping off court at the Royal Albert Hall, Ivanisevic made the short trip to Loftus Road to watch his team secure a 1-1 draw thanks to Shane Long's 81st minute goal.

He is now set to watch his beloved West Bromwich Albion play at home for the first time against Manchester City next month.

The love affair first began thanks to his close friendship with Baggies fan and tennis journalist David Law.

He has warmed up for legends matches in a Baggies kit and even persuaded tennis legend John McEnroe to pose with a shirt.

Ivanisevic has even been invited to play alongside Albion staff after displaying his football skills in an online video.
