Theme Day: Animal

Novak Djokovic
Sure, I could have posted a bird, a dog or an alligator...or some other critter for today's City Daily Photo theme day. But, I'm opting for a completely different take.  I give you the tennis animal:  Novak Djokovic, the #1 ranked player in the world.  With last Sunday's record breaking Australian Open win, prowling the court for nearly 6 hours of mind boggling endurance tennis, he was....well...an animal out there!  Unbelievably impressive.  I've been fortunate enough to see him play several times, including on Centre Court at Wimbledon, where I took this photo.  Lots of bloggers in the CDP community are participating in today's theme day.   Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I'm glad that someone included the human animal...in addition to spectacular talent, he's got great legs!

Nice trun at the theme, and yes it was a greatbmatcht sunday!

It is a clever interpretation. Since I don't know much about tennis, I don't know anything about him. BTW, take another look and you will see that he is wearing a dunce's cap! Hah!

I´m sorry for Nadal but I agree with you. I think Novak is currently in another galaxy. A real animal!

I was going to say this looked very much like Wimbledon. There's nothing quite like white and green, so elegant...
