Definitive proof that Novak Djokovic really, really likes Speedos

While Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga passed the time with ping pong during their rain-delayed final at Queen's Club, Novak Djokovic, who wasn't at the tournament but followed the delay from a London airport, had a suggestion for how the players could get on the court, bad weather and all:

Notice he didn't say that they should wear bathing suits or trunks or jammers or board shorts or wetsuits or snorkels or swimsuits. Nope, the world No. 2 insisted that Speedos should be the attire of choice.

It reminded me of this picture taken of Djokovic during a charity fashion show in 2009:

The takeaway: Either Djokovic has a hush-hush deal with the world's largest swimsuit maker or the dude has an unnatural love of tight-fitting male swimming briefs. Maybe he missed his calling. Instead of challenging Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer for tennis supremacy, he could be racing Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.
