davis cup: is janko ready?

I want to put him in my tote and feed him carrots all day.

Janko Tipsarevic will play reverse singles as part of the Serbian team in this weekend’s Davis Cup playoff tie against Team Slovakia (in Bratislava). After that ankle injury forced him to retire at the Olympics and the U.S. Open, let’s hope he doesn’t run into any trouble.

Here he is at a reception with Slovakian singer Sisa Sklovska. As expected, Nole is hamming it up.
