179cm VS 186cm

Hello George here. Just thought I'd share with everyone some sportsmanship humour which just took place on the ATP Tour. At the Claro Open Colombia in Bogata, defending champion Ivo Karlovic played again Dudi Sela and won 7-6(8), 7-6(5) with a little surprise ending. 

Dudi is among the shorter players on tour while Ivo Karlovic being certainly one of if not the tallest player on the mens tour. Dudi has played Karlovic 5 times thus far. I have never seen anyone come up after a final and hug someone in this manner.  It was interesting and funny to see. All in good nature! 

They both know each other well on the tour and are friends. Dudi commented, " I've always wanted to hug Ivo."

"Even after retirement the great one keep playing. What is it that drives them to do so? I would say the love and passion for the game wouldn't you?"

" Back into the swing of things in 2014! My goal is to definitely learn more Thai this year, play more tennis, get into great shape, and as always inspire those who want to become better tennis players. Have a great start everyone to your new year and keep your goals alive and in-line."
