Anyone else cheer for Djokovic even if you're not a tennis fan?

Ever since Djokovic went gluten free I has been following and cheering him on. He has completely dominated the tennis scene and won the US open last night. I'm not even a tennis fan and I was cheering my butt off last night. Anyone else love seeing him suceed just because hes a gluten free athlete?

Same here-- I'm a huge tennis fan (and really LOVE watching Nadal play), but since Djkovic started dominating from going gluten-free, he became my new favorite! What a phenomenal athlete!

I'm a long time Nadal fan and my wife just loves Federer. But I wanted to the Djokester win. And I was glad to see Serena lose after her hissy fit againt the chair ump who correctly called a point against her. I wish the ump would have forfeited her for her bad behavior.

No, of course not. But I like the validation of Robb Wolf's "Look, feel and perform better" mantra. He is clearly playing better and he attributes it to giving up bread, pasta and pizza. It's not paleo, but it's good positive advertising for what works. Athletes are always looking for an edge - this is how paleo will become mainstream.

Seems like such a genuine guy, I liked that he wore that FDNY hat after he won;that was classy. Also I'm tired of hearing about how awesome Nadal is, so it's nice to see a new guy on top!

He was one of the 3 best before going gluten free. After new diet, he started to dominate. Ofc, he didn't have any obvious symptoms related to gluten exposure.

As far as I know, and I do, since I am from Belgrade and everybody here talks about it constantly, he is protocol oriented dude - every minute is organised from eating to sleeping.

It looks like he uses protocol of Dr. Ana Gifing, altho I am not sure if thats true, and it looks like marketing move especially since Dr Gifing claim that for her, typical sweets are not sweets, but it is black chocolate, which is ofc nonsense !

Here is google translated local news

No, I do not need a celebrity endorsement to validate my lifestyle.

I was thrilled and I am not a tennis fan. This is because my husband is a huge tennis fan and someone that I want to see go at least gluten free if not paleo. I think he's really giving it some thought now!

Hahaha! yes absolutely! Everytime I hear or see anything with regard to success and going gluten free, I smile smugly knowing that people I know who think I'm mad must have heard this and are maybe starting to wonder...... our time will come mwa hahahaha! ;D

I read that Djocovik personal doctor rejects what he calls "the four white deaths" meaning sugar, flour, milk and fat. With the obvious exception of fat, the other three rejects are clearly part of the paleo rejects too (at least in the original, strict, non dairy paleo)

Yes! I was thrilled when he won Wimbledon. Any celeb following our way of eating helps those of us who want to change the world.
