Djokovic Did The Weirdest Thing After Beating Federer At Wimbledon

1 min read

Maybe he was really hungry?

When a soccer player scores a screamer of a goal, or a footy player gets over the try line, or a sprinter wins a race, they all celebrate. 

Some celebrations are funny, some are impressive, some are just downright triumphant. 

But, if you’re tennis player Novak Djokovic, your celebration is a little weirder than usual.  

The world number one went up against Roger Federer in an intense Wimbledon final and came out on top after winning the tiebreaker in the fifth set. 

He celebrated by crouching down and snacking on a blade of grass from the court. 

Yes, you read that right. 

Maybe he was just hungry from the four hour 57-minute match? Or maybe it’s a cultural thing?

It’s actually part of a quirky tradition Djokovic has. 

This isn’t the first time he’s sampled the grass on the Wimbledon court. His tradition stems all the way back to when he first won the competition in 2011. 

Djokovic always dreamed of winning Wimbledon as a kid and wanted to commemorate his victory by doing something a little unusual. 

"It's a little tradition obviously. As a kid I was dreaming of winning Wimbledon, so, like every child, you dream of doing something crazy when you actually achieve it - if you achieve it - and that was one of the things," he told the BBC in 2018.

To each their own, we guess.
