Novak Djokovic Wimbledon Final 2014


First things first, I found these two videos from after 5SOS abseiled off the building, which was the University Of London by the way (it’s on the flag that’s waving at the top).

I absolutely love tennis.

My obsession with it, kinda started two years ago ( I think) when it was Andy Murray and Roger Federer in the final, Federer won, to my disappointment.

 

And then last year it was Djokovic and Murray, I loved both of them so it was hard to choose which one to support, but Andy’s British, so I went with him. And then he won, and that’s when I became a really keen tennis fan, the next day, every single British newspaper had blown up images of Andy on all their front pages, and I bought them all. I felt a little sorry for Djokovic. But aah well.

 

Obviously I watched it this year as well, and Nadal got out, but he always does in Wimbledon, he isn’t very good on grass, better on clay as seen for the past god-knows-how-many-years at the French Open. And then Murray got out too, to some Grigor Dimitrov or something, putting Andy at number 10 in the world, and the opponent that knocked him out at Wimbledon this year, at 9.

 

I didn’t watch the tennis as much as I did last year, but when the final came on today, I sat down and watched, rooting for Djokovic all the way. I have to tell you, it was an extremely close game, very tense, and there was something wrong with Djokovic’s leg. All the same, it didn’t get in the way of his determination to win.

And I’m glad it didn’t.  It was extremely emotional when he won. At first he was smiling, then he started to break down crying, then he sank to the ground and ate a blade of grass, as it was the grass on which he won,  then he turned to God, went to embrace his team, oh, it was just amazing.  I’m glad he won, but Federer did do very well, but he’s already won Wimbledon like what, 7 times? His twins were very cute though X  Turns out Djokovic’s soon to be a Father as well, so this just adds to his joy.
