EmailWritten by greattennisphotos on Aug-18-08 2:06pm
According to Serbian Kurir magazine and some other international press, Novak Djokovic did win a trophy in Beijing...and that's the hottest female athlete, Paraguayan javelin thrower Leryn Franco!
The beautiful Leryn was spotted attending all Novak's matches, and she was even seen as sitting with Serbian delegation during his matches!
The 26-year old Franco is competing in her second Olympics, thanks to a burgeoning modeling career that gave her the financial support to continue competing in javelin competitions. Leryn Franco finished 42nd overall at the 2004 Summer Olympics. Two years later, she was in 2006 the runner-up in the Miss Paraguay competition and the Miss Bikini Universe pageant.
Here is what Ultima Hora said:
"The Beauty and the Tennis Player.
Leryn Franco and Novak Djokovic
The Paraguayan athlete Leryn Franco still has not entered into competition, but already she has attracted attention in the Olympic Games, - specifically that of the Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, with whom they say she has a romance.
It is almost impossible that Leryn will win a medal in Beijing, but apparently she has won herself a boyfriend. The Olympics correspondant for Argentine newspaper "La Nacion", says that, in the Olympic Village, Leryn and the tennis player Novak Djokovic walk round hand-in-hand and are romantically involved. Novak, was beaten by Rafael Nadal, so maybe that is why he seeks consolation in other ways, and what better company that the Paraguayan, whose beauty has already dazzled all? Leryn has even been treated by Novak's Physical Trainer in the days leading up to her participation in the event. Neither of the two will win a gold medal in this Olympics, but seems they are going to extinguish the pain of losing in the joys of love"
Nole, Nole what a charmer you are!
