Playing in the Wimbledon Final could be a very tiring experience.

And after world no. 1 Novak Djokovic outlasted Roger Federer in another classic, 7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-3, to win his third Wimbledon title, the Serbian champion took a little break and ate some of the grass at Centre Court.

Djokovic ate the grass. He plucked some from the court and he ate it.

He later explained that its his "tradition" and wanted to celebrate winning Wimbledon by doing "something crazy."

He ate the grass folks. Maybe its his own version of "Michael's secret stuff."

"It tasted very very good this year. I don't know what the grounds people have done, but they've done a great job," Djokovic said in the on-court interview.

Djokovic's legend just keeps on growing.
