Although fancy sports like competition yachting, golf, and tennis are bastions for latte sipping 1%ers, it does not lessen the worth of their champions. We’ll be focussing on tennis today. There are very few things required for tennis greatness, among them are superhuman endurance, cat-like flexibility and flawless technique. At the upper echelon, tennis is as much a battle for court position as a contest of baseline-forearms.
Every few years a new king is inaugurated to reign over us plebes. My introduction to tennis was watching Federer mercilessly crush competition, I then spectated as Nadal wrestled the crown from Roger’s iron eastern grip, and most recently: the Djokovic coup.
Year-over-year the top dogg’s seem more dominant than their predecessors. So with 2012 likely being the year of Djokovic, it’s safe to assume that he’s the best tennis player on earth, and perhaps ever? This is Djokovic’s tennis gear; and yes, it’s all gluten free.
