Novak Djokovic Rips Shirt Off After Wimbledon Win Against Hewitt


Serb Novak Djokovic turned into an animal after defeating (7-5, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4) Australia's Lleyton Hewitt at Wimbledon today and tried to rip his shirt off.


He wasn't entirely successful, so slipped it off over his head, to reveal some stripes of pink tape on his back. More, AFTER THE JUMP...


Djokovic's win against former champion Hewitt puts himself in the quarterfinals.

  2. After the UK's Ben Cohen (rugby) and Canada's Alexandre Despatie (diving), Novak is the 3rd sexiest athlete in the world.

    Thanks for the pics!

  4. What do the pink stripes signify?

  5. Absolutely nothing; that is Kinesio-tape, used to assist muscles and keep them from straining. I have used it with athletes before. Since he does a lot of overhand work, involving the deltoid muscles, that would make sense that the tape is where it is. Pink is pink. Comes in lots of colors.

    My question is this: Why did it take him 4 hours and 32 seconds to finally tear himself free of his shirt?

  6. The pink stripes are just tape for a injured muscle. He probably just has as a shoulder strain. Taping muscles like that is the new thing in sports.

  7. I think I saw him last night on "True Blood" turning into a were-wolf! Woof!

  8. Whatever effect he wanted to display for ripping his shirt is ruined when he cannot finish ripping his shirt. Pussy.

  12. Why don't tennis players wear pull-away clothes? Rafa Nadal needs to strip off those shorts - doing it in one brisk motion would be really cool.

    Oh,those are just his balls.

    No, really--don't they put tennis balls in their pockets just before they serve?

  14. Love the farmer tan.

  15. I really dislike Novak. I wish he'd quit tennis. It would make my watching more pleasurable.

    I wish Lleyton would have kicked his ass, in the game.
