India’s wild card entrant in the men’s singles tennis event at the Olympics,Somdev Devvarman was today stuck in the London traffic for two hours on his way back from the All England Club to the Games Village here.
Devvarman,who decided to reside at the Games Village,had to face the ordeal of the lengthy journey to and fro from Wimbledon,which has already convinced many tennis stars to get accommodation near Wimbledon.
“Here’s Milos passed out during the 2 hour ride back from the All England Club to the Village. Yes I said 2 hours!” Devvarman tweeted alongwith a photograph of a Canadian Milos Raonic,who was sleeping on the coach.
The long journey from the Games Village to the All England Club has forced stars like seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer,world number two Novak Djokovic and reigning French Open champion Maria Sharapova to take accommodations outside the Village.
