Novak Djokovic eats grass after winning Wimbledon (Video)
Novak Djokovic won his third Wimbledon and ninth career major when he defeated Roger Federer in four sets at the All-England Club Sunday.
After whipping a forehand across the court for a winner to capture the fourth set 6-4, Nole began celebrating his win. He shook hands with Federer at the net and then walked back to his side of the court where he dropped down to the ground and put some of the Wimbledon grass in his mouth.
“It tasted very good this year,” Djokovic joked after the match. “I don’t know what the grounds people have done but they did a great job.”
He then explained how he developed his grass-eating tradition.
“As a kid I was dreaming of winning Wimbledon. As a child you dream of doing something crazy if you achieve it, and that was one of the things.”
Who knew Nole and Les Miles had so much in common? I bet if Miles ever ripped his shirt he’d be able to tear it the full way though.
