Awww... (Again)
Recently I enthused over the much-lauded Wimbledon semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Juan Martín del Potro. At the end of the match Nole and Delpo had an epic hug which totally confirmed them as my tennis OTP.

Today, I discovered what they were saying to each other at the net that afternoon:

"At the net, Novak said to me:

You are a fantastic player. The crowd loves you," del Potro recalls.

"For me, it was a fantastic moment."

Of all the things that he could have thought "fantastic" about that afternoon, (OK, he lost, but it was a brilliant match with some top-class play on both sides) the best part was a compliment from his good friend Nole, the man who defeated him.

They are so sweet.

As far as I can tell - and maybe Halo can clarify - the more usual comment at the net is "good match, well done".

To deliver such a genuine, ego-boosting compliment at such a moment seems to me an incredibly kind and loving thing to do.
