I saw Novak Đoković at a grocery store in Belgrade a few months ago. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a ****** and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and looking to the ceiling and pointing to his chest with both of his hands, then pointing towards me like he was sending me love but with an ironic grin on his face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him bounce a tennis ball like twenty times as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen bags of chia seeds in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be doing a Nadal impersonation and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bags and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any gluten infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by asking if he could get any tax reduction.
And the Ao courts aren't even fast. in the 90s the current AO would be considered a medium slow hard court. AO used to play like a clay court before 2017. now its medium slow. US open is SLOW. as slow as roland garros. Wimbledon is slow too.
