Thousands of Serbians braved freezing temperatures Sunday to celebrate two international sporting successes in tennis and water polo -- and a near miss in handball.

Sports fans celebrated Novak Djokovic's epic five-set victory over Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final and their waterpolo team's victory in the European championships.

Serbia just missed a hat trick of victories when they lost in the finals of the European handball championships, beaten at home by Denmark.

But hundreds of young Belgraders waving Serbian flags and chanting "Serbia, Serbia," set off fireworks at the main Terazije Square and cheered their heroes.
