Novak Attack!


My face doesn't quite capture the utter shock and excitement I just experienced running into Novak Djokovic on Fifth Avenue! I slipped out of work to exchange a shirt I'd bought over the weekend (wrong size) when I saw this guy leaving Uniqlo who looked awfully familiar. I went right up to him and said, "Hi, Novak. What are you doing here?" He smiled, so I asked for a photo. Then his security guard tried to stop me, but I protested saying Nole had already consented to it. Novak sidled up to me, said cheese, and I snapped it. I then said congratulations -- I really wanted to say "How could you let ME down like this? -- and he shook my hand. Beaming, I went upstairs and they actually had my shirt in the correct size. I haven't been this happy since ... I ran into Roger Federer in a cafe in Rome!!!!

How exciting!!! You are so lucky Kenneth!!

I was once on a flight with Pete Sampas and another time sat in front of Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields at a Bette Midler concert but did not have the nerve to talk with any of them.

You are so lucky to live in NYC.

Nice pic. Talk about luck. Definitely one of the perks in living in NYC, lots of chance spottings. He and Andy Murray had one of the best grand slam finals I've seen in quite awhile.
