Most fans attending any sporting event are just lucky to have a ticket to enjoy the action that’s in front of them.
And if they are fortunate to leave the arena or stadium with a souvenir — especially from an athlete and not the high-priced gift shop — it can make for memories that last a lifetime.
That’s exactly what happened to a young lad after Sunday’s men’s French Open final.
After Novak Djokovic rallied from two sets down to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas (6) 6-7; 2-6; 6-3; 6-2; 6-4, to became the first man in the Open Era to win all four Grand Slam titles at least twice. Djokovic walked over to the kid and handed him a racket.
The young kid’s reaction: well, let’s just say it was utter disbelief and total shock.
Djokovic is one major victory behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the most men’s Grand Slam titles of all time.
