NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Goran Ivanisevic has gained the most fan votes for the International Tennis Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020.

That means 2001 Wimbledon champion Ivanisevic will get a bonus of 3% added to his results from the official voting group that includes journalists, historians and members of the Hall.

In fan voting results released Wednesday, 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez finished second and nine-time Grand Slam doubles title winner Jonas Bjorkman was third. Martinez gets a 2% boost, Bjorkman 1%.
