Wimbledon Day 7: Delicate Flower Hulks Out

Posted by gauloises1 on June 29, 2010

Novak Djokovic confounded a lot of people’s expectations today by defeating Lleyton Hewitt in four sets, 75 64 36 64. It would, frankly, have been straight sets had Nole not struggled with a stomach problem – I’m not clear whether it was something he ate, or a muscle strain of some sort – in the third set which caused him to lose his way. He overcomed [sic] it though, ended a grass-court run that saw Hewitt take out Federer, and celebrated by tearing off his shirt, revealing the raw throbbing hunk of testosterone-fuelled manflesh we all remember from his glory days. Sorry, I know it rubs some people the wrong way, but frankly I will take brash, in-your-face iconoclast Nole over the subdued and somewhat ineffectual one we’ve seen all too often of late any day of the week. So there.

You wouldn’t like him when he’s topless.

Oh, wait. Yes you would.

    I’ve been lurking for months now, and just wanted to say that you’re one of the two tennis blogs I read regularly.

    Oh, and you perfectly summed up Nole’s emotional victory shirt-ripping. With Roddick out, my heart wants Nole to win.

    What’s the pink thing on Novak’s left shoulder?
