Novak Djokovic nearly defeated by champagne cork

Novak Djokovic is a big, Serbian winning machine.

The world’s top-ranked player won the ATP Internazaionali BNL d’Italia in Rome over the weekend, cruising past Roger Federer in straight sets in the final.

The triumph stretched his winning streak to 22 straight matches.

So when you win that much, the post-tournament celebration should go off without a hitch, right?

There was a minor glitch on the red clay in Rome, when Federer nearly shot himself in the eye with a champagne cork.

The tournament win was Djokovic’s fourth of the season. He’ll likely be the top seed for the French Open, which begins next week at Roland Garros in Paris.
