Novak Djokovic’s French Open hopes and dreams nearly came to a crashing end yesterday after winning his fourth Rome title, beating Roger Federer 64 63.
During the post-match trophy ceremony, Djokovic popped the customary champagne, except the cork nearly hit him in the eye!
Watch for yourself:
Djokovic had to get treatment for the injury which drew blood near his nose.
“I am very, very fortunate to still have my eye,” Djokovic said. “We had an argument with Mr Champagne and he certainly threw a punch I will not forget.
“He must know I don’t like drinking champagne, so he decided to strike me. Luckily it was only my nose.”
