What Marijana Veljovic said in the DVD - Wimbledon The Official Film 2017

"The best thing about being umpire when I look at it overall. I do something I really love and it’s my passion.

Before I go on court, I do sometimes get nervous, but it’s that kind of positive feeling to be more focused more concentrated and it’s good to be present in that level I think.

For me personally was the first Grand Slam I have ever been selected too. When I was young my dream was to come to Wimbledon at least as a spectator one day so coming here through the gates for the first time was like a dream come true.

Being able again to do what I do and being part of the history of the game and being able to meet some of the legends of the game is just amazing".
