The news cycle in the tennis world moves fast—who can keep up? That's where we come in. Each Thursday, Last Year Today will look back at a memorable story from exactly one year ago.
The singer Seal will probably go down in history as the man who delivered "Kiss from a Rose" to us all and shared love and children with Heidi Klum. On Monday night at Hotel Puente Romano in Marbella, Spain, he received intel that one Novak Djokovic was in the audience at his concert. Cue Seal dedicating his best-known hit to the Djokovic clan in attendance before launching into the song:
Djokovic, recuperating from an early Wimbledon upset at the forehand-thundering hands of Sam Querrey, has his sights set on Rio Olympic glory. He won a bronze medal in Beijing in 2008 but failed to medal in 2012 in London, losing in the semifinal round to eventual gold-winner Andy Murray and then being upended by Juan Martin del Potro for third place. With every Grand Slam singles title (or multiples) and a Davis Cup team championship under his belt, Olympic gold may be the one thing Djokovic lacks in his quiver.
