Former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic has finally sold the tainted 5.3 million pound villa that he built after winning Wimbledon but never lived in because he was caught having an affair.
The luxury villa in the city’s posh Meje district has been snapped up by Russian frozen chicken billionaire Stefano Vlahovic.
It was originally for the tennis star and his model fiancée Tatjana Dragovic, but it was never lived in after the couple left the country shortly after it was discovered Ivanisevic had had an affair with local TV star Vanja Halilovic.
They moved to America with their two children because their home town at the time had too many "painful reminders".
They then moved back to Croatia to the capital Zagreb.
Goran’s cousin, the architect Vjekoslav Ivanisevic, designed the home, which includes four bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa also has a pool - but no tennis court.
Vlahovic who is a Russian with Croatian roots is the president of Produkty Pitania, Russia's largest frozen food maker.
Ivanisevic had the property in the posh Meje area of his hometown of Split, Croatia, on the market shortly after it was completed.
