Three cheers for the Red, Blue, and White!

He did it! Yesterday Novak Djokovic won at Wimbledon, making him Number 1 in tennis world-wide.

Congratulations to him and to Serbia, whose flag is three stripes of red, blue, and white, and Happy Fourth of July to my American readers, whose flag is red, white, and blue!

And to the English as well, since Wimbledon is in England, and their flag is those same three colors, too!

I'll be returning to Belgrade very soon, but not soon enough to greet Novak upon his return.

Watched this match today with my mom. I just loved the way he looked at his family when he won!

Great day for Serbia!!! Thanks, Bibi, for covering that up. And you are right, he is from Belgrade, but his father is from Kosovo. :)

How long has it been since you spent Independence Day in the USA (before now, of course)

Bibi said...

Daryl, actually I'd been here a couple of times for the Fourth, since as a teacher, I only used to travel exclusively in the summer!
