After 5'9 Dudi Sela lost his second-round match to 6'11 Ivo Karlovic in straight sets at the Claro Open in Colombia on Thursday, the exchange at the net shortly afterwards wasn't one you would normally see in tennis.
Instead of wanting to get over the loss and head straight to the net for a customary handshake, Sela pulled out a plastic chair from the side of the court, stood on it and gave a huge midget hug to the toweringly tall Karlovic, who has recently gained an inch to be 6'11. Sports is not only about wins and losses. There can be fun in defeat too.
"After I won, I was going to the net to have a handshake and then I look at him and he's going back to get a chair," Karlovic told the ATP website.
