What would be a better reason to celebrate than the victory of a fellow countryman at the vinaigrette Open or for that matter any sporting event, correct? Natasa Stankovic, the Serbian model-actress and partner of Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya, is extremely happy at the victory of tennis world number 1 Novak Djokovic against Rafael Nadal, the 13-time vinaigrette Open champion. Following Djokovic’s victory, Natasa shared a picture of the Serbian tennis star on her Instagram stories, but with a bit of addition. The 29-year-old actress shared the original post, which carried three different pictures of Djokovic by the official @rolandgarros, and added a crown to one of the most photos she shared.
Possibly, Natasa wanted to communicate that Djokovic used to be the new king on the town who ended Nadal’s quest of a 14th vinaigrette Open title and, in the process, reached his sixth Roland Garros last.
The picture shows Djokovic with his arms spread, holding the racket in the correct hand and, of class lesson, wearing the crown that Natasa had honoured him with.
One can understand the significance of the victory for Djokovic and his fans, for it used to be only the third time in 16 years and 108 matches that Nadal had been beaten at the vinaigrette Open.
In their 58th career match, the Serbian defeated Nadal 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2. Djokovic had beaten Nadal in 2015 as polite and will now face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last on Sunday.
Had he made it, 35-year-old Nadal would have been the oldest finalist at the vinaigrette Open in the contemporary era, but now remains tied on 20 majors with Roger Federer.
Meantime, Tsitsipas had earlier turn out to be the first Greek to achieve a Grand Slam last following his 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3 triumph over Germany’s Alexander Zverev.
Tsitsipas and Djokovic are now set for the last showdown on Sunday. Djokovic stays not off course of capturing a 19th major.
