An aura of msitero envelops a particular gesture made by Novak Djokovic in the round of 16 match at Wimbledon. Against Tim van Rijthoven, the Serbian took a water bottle and asked his box whether to take on the contents at that time and afterwards.
After receiving the ok, however, the former world number one does not seem to drink the contents of the bottle, but inhales what is inside. For this gesture, social media have wondered why and what was inside. "What's in the bottle? I swear he inhales it," writes the author of the post.
The Wimbledon match has sparked various reactions on social networks.
After raising the question, many wondered about this gesture and the Telegraph gave an explanation: the Serbian is one of the players who chooses to take unmixed energy supplements or isotonic powder during matches, as Fanpage always reports.
Hence, the Serb would swallow these powders, which are taken without water.
I would very much like to know what was in this bottle. It certainly wasn’t liquid, and he gestured to his coach before inhaling it. Very odd. pic.twitter.com/bBG62BOMFh — Damian Reilly (@DamianReilly) July 5, 2022
