Novak Djokovic had to retire from his Wimbledon quarterfinals match against Tomas Berdych on Wednesday due to an elbow injury.
While it was a huge disappointment for the three-time Wimbledon and 12-time Grand Slam champ, Berdych decided to pay homage to Djokovic by wearing his face on his sneakers.
Yup, you read that right. In Berdych’s semifinals match on Friday against Roger Federer, Berdych wore the exact same Adidas sneakers Djokovic wears, which feature a sketch of Djokovic’s face on the tongue of the sneaker. Djokovic wears Lacoste clothes, but he still wears the Adidas Novak Pro, his signature shoe with the brand.
Berdych is sponsored by Adidas and has been wearing the shoes throughout the Grand Slam tournament.
Federer ended up beating Berdych in the semifinals 7-6(4), 7-6(4) 6-4.
