Many of you were probably not up as late as I was last night watching The Federer vs Sandgren quarterfinals match at the Australian Open. It was pretty amazing as Roger Federer saved match point a whopping 7 times to fight off American Sandgren to reach the semi-finals of the Open. But what really struck me was the beautiful umpire the match featured in Marijana Veljovic. Not only is she gorgeous but she doesn’t take any BS from anyone. During the match last night Federer became upset and screamed a cuss word (gonna guess it started with an F). She quickly issued him a code violation. Fed got even more mad, and demanded to know what he said. She just looked, smiled and said she wasn’t going to repeat it. I instantly fell in love.

Umpire: “Code violation, verbal obscenity, warning Mr Federer.
Federer: “What did I say?”
Umpire: “I can’t repeat that.” pic.twitter.com/Lc6rIzAI1c

Of course the internet did it’s job. Her name is Marijana Veljovic:
She’s a Serbian tennis umpire. You think you can get away with a foot fault with her under patrol? Nope. She’s a tough cookie.

Maybe, I need to start thinking of Serbia as a country I will be visiting this upcoming summer?
