When Ivanisevic charmed Nisha

October 17, 2006 19:40 IST
We recently launched a new feature where we post images of world sportsmen contributed by you Dear Readers.

If you encounter/meet/see cricketers or sports personalities and photograph them, please scan the photographs and mail the pictures to us. We will feature the best images right here on Cricket or Rediff Sports.

Reader Nisha Giri sent us this picture from Houston, Texas.

'Here is my picture with tennis star Goran Ivanisevic taken in Houston in November 2005. He was there to participate in the Stanford Financial Champions Cup, an exhibition tournament of retired champions,' writes Nisha.

'This picture with Goran is special for me because it's a dream come true. He was my all-time favourite tennis player and my only serious celebrity crush growing up.'

'I always sorely regretted not meeting him when he came to India for the Davis Cup in 1995 (I may have been the only Indian rooting for him then against Leander Paes). But this encounter in Houston satisfied my long unfulfilled desire. I don't think he fell in love with me the moment our eyes met, but he did give me a smile and posed for a photograph.'

'Although I'd long abandoned the hopes of marrying him, I will always cherish this picture (which my husband graciously clicked).'

So rush those photographs to us!
