Tiny Tennis Player Stands on Chair to Shake Hand of Giant Tennis Player

By 07.18.14


Did you know many mascot costumes can only be used by people of a specific height? For instance, you can’t be Sparty at Michigan State unless you’re between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-2.

Neither Dudi Sela or Ivo Karlović, two professional tennis players, could be Sparty even if they quit their jobs to follow that dream. Sela is a diminutive 5-foot-9 while Karlović can reach any shelf with his 6-foot-9 frame.

Hilarity ensued after a the duo squared off in a match won by Karlović.

Sela literally needed to stand on a chair in order to facilitate a handshake.

OK, maybe not literally. I can think of countless times an NBA power forward has exchanged a handshake with a small point guard.

But, hey, as we learned in Seinfeld: one does not dissect gossamer.
