London tennis players have a dream: to meet Usain Bolt


The charm of the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, seems to have taken over the stars of the tennis world. Many are hoping to see the Jamaican star up close as he looks to repeat the successes of Beijing 2008.

Juan Martin Del Potro said he was very happy to have the chance to meet legends in other sports: “The Olympics are special, they breathe a special atmosphere. We will play Wimbledon and we will be a tournament like any other, but the difference lies in meeting athletes from other disciplines, talking to them and trying to understand how they feel.

Tsonga is another player who agrees: “I would love to see any sport that emphasizes physicality, primarily wrestling, basketball and track and field, but of course watch Bolt closely in the 100 yards.” Andy Murray revealed his passion and agreed with his colleagues: “If I hadn’t become a tennis player, I would have tried to be strong in the 110m hurdles.

During the Olympics I will be watching boxing a lot and I want to meet the athlete Bolt.” Mahesh Bhupathi and Laura Robson think the same way: “Usain is the best athlete we could find. We have to remember that he comes from a country that is not exactly among the top in the world.

He’s the best runner. » World No. 1 Roger Federer, is not immune to ‘Boltite’. The Swiss hopes to find a free moment to follow the 100 meters in athletics: “I’ve always been fascinated. To have the opportunity to see these guys ‘zipping’ just a few yards from you must be amazing. Bolt is a great champion that I’ve never had the opportunity to meet; I hope the do on this occasion.”
