Good show, old chap

I don’t follow his career enough to know, but I’m guessing yesterday’s performance at Wimbledon was one of the highlights of Dudi Sela’s career. The 32-year-old Israeli upset the USA’s John Isner — ranked #23 in the world — 6-7, 7-6, 5-7, 7-6 and 6-3 to advance in the prestigious tournament.

Sela — one of three participants from Israel — faces  Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here’s a picture for you. Sela stands 5’9″, compared with Isner’s 6’10”. He also faced (if that’s the right word),  another towering opponent, 6’11’ Ivo Karlovic at the Claro Open in 2014.
