NOW we finally know why Đoković performed poorly after the USO !!!

Novak Djokovic (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/1068/) says he abandoned his gluten-free diet to toast a season of triumph with a glass of wine.

After all, he’d won three GrandSlams, seven other titles and claimed the No. 1 ranking.

“More than one, actually,” a smiling :D Djokovic said Saturday, admitting that it “did not end up well the next day.”


Djokovic, who partly credits his new diet for his improvement, went 70-6 for the season and took home a record $12.6 million in prize money.
He says it will be very difficult to repeat his success next season, but “nothingis really impossible.”


Djokovic will begin his preparations for the 2012 season by playing an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi beginning Dec. 29, which also features Rafael Nadal (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/599/) and Roger Federer (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/42/).

Guys
My sincerest apologies for the first post. I'm cleaning it up and leaving just the link. I was really "out of sorts" last night. Hope you'll understand.

There is no gluten in wine.
But there is gluten in toast, and if you toast with a glass of wine....:)

I understand and appreciate your concern that Nadal's presence means partying and wine and pizza and more straying from the gluten-free diet which could adversely impact the upcoming season.

This is interesting about the celebration bit. No wonder a lot of the soccer and rugby lot do badly here in the uk if they 'celebrate ' every minor win as they do and then wonder why they don't get the world cup!
