Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic met Yao Ming at the Shanghai Masters

Wednesday October 8th, 2014

The world's number one tennis player, Novak Djokovic, met China's greatest basketball player, Yao Ming, while in the country for the Shanghai Rolex Masters tournament.

Djokovic is listed on the ATP World Tour Website as 6-foot-2, while Yao Ming measures an astonishing 7-6, so it was not easy to get the pair into a frame for photographs.

Despite their different size and background, Djokovic and Ming have at least one thing in common as they seem to have decided on the same hairstyle.


Now Roger Federer has also met with Yao!
