WATCH: Novak Djokovic pulls a Les Miles, eats grass after Wimbledon victory
Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic played an incredible match in Sunday morning’s Wimbledon final, playing for five hours before Djokovic finally earned the victory in a historic tiebreak.
After Djokovic won the match, he pulled out a celebration that reminded many college football fans of former LSU and current Kansas coach Les Miles.
As you can see below, Djokovic bends down after the final point and eats a couple blades of the famed Wimbledon grass:

We can’t wait to see what the tennis version of Les Miles does next. Also, Miles will have to top Djokovic on the field this fall in Lawrence.
