Cupid’s Javelin Hits Leryn Franco, Novak Djokovic

When we first learned of lovely Leryn Franco, we figured it would only be a matter of time before some well-known athlete would become smitten with the pretty Paraguayan javelin thrower.

And now a Serbian swinger has stepped up to the plate - tennis star Novak Djokovic has apparently fallen for Franco.

Although Djokovic has just started playing in the opening rounds of the U.S. Open, he can already claim the best trophy.


While Franco didn’t win any medals at the Olympics, she was a runner-up in the 2006 Miss Paraguay pageant and the Miss Bikini Universe contest. And she was sitting in the stands at Ashe Stadium yesterday cheering as Djokovic beat France’s Arnaud Clement in straight sets.

Wonder how jealous Maria Sharapova feels.
