Tennis Star Still Making Headlines for Impressive Performance after Adopting the Gluten-Free Diet

Serbian player Novak Djokovic won the Monte Carlo Masters, upsetting the reigning champion of nine years.

Tennis pro Novak Djokovic has been vocal about the impact of his gluten-free diet on his on-court performance.  It appears that he is still feeling the benefits of treating his gluten-related disorder as he ended the nine year run of Rafael Nadal in the Monte Carlo Masters.

“Rafa, thank you for allowing me to win it once,” Djokovic said.  “I couldn’t ask for a better start to the clay season.” 

After his big win, Djokovic dropped to his knees and kissed the tennis court in celebration.  His next chance at victory comes in just five weeks at the French Open.
