Novak Djokovic has made a new friend at Wimbledon, the squirrel who lives in the backyard of his rented house. The world No. 2 took a picture of his rodent pal and posted it on his Facebook page:
Djokovic explained the burgeoning friendship:
This little squirrel comes every day to wish us luck :) i tried feeding her, every day she comes closer....maybe one day she eats from my hand! Ova veverica nas svaki dan posecuje, podmicujemo je orasima i lesnicima :)
One can only assume the Serbian sentence at the end translates into "somebody make sure to get some hydrogen peroxide and Band-Aids for after I inevitably get bitten by the wild animal."
Update (7:48 GMT): Breaking news from London: Djokovic has progressed in his squirrel taming attempts.
This can only end well.
