Ivo Karlovic, a 6’11″ Croatian, beat Dudi Sela, a 5’9″ Israeli, (7-6, 7-6) at the Claro Open Championship in Bogotá, Colombia on Thursday. As the final point became official, Sela immediately ran away from the net to get a chair while Karlovic waited for the traditional post-match handshake.
Dudi Sela’s smart manoeuvre has been utilized many of times by your truly when posing for any picture with the First Lady. Her height (or my lack there of) makes carrying a step stool around with me a must. So if you see me out in public holding a step ladder or sporting lifts in my shoes, please don’t judge I’m simply preparing to have my picture taken with my wife.
