Tennis WAGs: the WAGs of Wimbledon

Leryn Franco

Partner: Novak Djokovic

Weird Cadbury’s adverts aside, javelins and tennis rackets don’t usually go hand in hand, but try telling that to Serbian World No.2 Novak Djokovic. He met Paraguayan javelin thrower Leryn Franco at the 2008 Beijing Olympics where she finished 51st, which ain’t great. In the 2004 Athens Olympics she came 42nd out of 45, which also isn’t special.

She did, however, finish runner-up in the 2006 Miss Universo Paraguay 2006 contest.

And then she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2011, making everything else completely inconsequential, really.

A weird and unrelated but nonetheless entertaining quote from barmy but brilliant Boris Becker:
“Tennis is a psychological sport, you have to keep a clear head. That is why I stopped playing.”
