The Serbians are a vibrant community of people hailing from Serbia as well as Bosnia, Herzegovina and Montenegro, and form significant minorities in Croatia, the Republic of Macedonia and Slovenia. Serbians are particularly known for their rich literary heritage. The history of Serbian literature begins with theological works from the 10th- and 11th centuries, and has prospered since the early 19th century. The most well known authors are Ivo Andrić, Miloš Crnjanski, Meša Selimović, Borislav Pekić, Branko Miljković, and Danilo Kiš. Svetlana Velmar-Janković and Gordana Kuić are the best known female novelists in Serbia today. Architect Milan Zloković was one of the founders of the Group of Architects of Modern Expressions, while Ivan Antić is considered one of the former Yugoslavia's best post-war architects. Distinguished sculptor and academic Simeon Roksandić, is frequently cited as one of the most renowned figures in Yugoslavian sculpture. Athletic and hardworking, Serbians have also made a name for themselves in the field of sports. Serbian born Monica Seles and Novak Djokovic are among the best tennis players the world has ever seen.
