WATCH: Djokovic 'blessed' by a bird

Novak Djokovic said he was blessed by a bird during his 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win against Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber at Wimbledon’s Centre Court.

His match was interrupted by a blue tit who seemed tired of getting a bird’s eye view and wanted to see the World No. 1 up close, disrupting the match for a brief period.

Said the Serb: “From where I come from, Belgrade, there’s a special sparrow.

“I believe this bird came all the way from there to help me.

“But I was feeling for its safety. I mean, it just loves tennis.

“At one point when Kohlschreiber was serving at the advantage side, the bird landed literally very close to the sideline. She stayed there until I won the point. 

“So I said, ‘Be my guest, stay around, if you want.’”

It swiftly had its own social media account on, what else, Twitter.

 

 

 

 

The distraction also made it to the tournament's official Twitter account.
