Photos Of The Day: Butterflies

Gentle giant Juan Martin Del Potro apparently attracts even the smallest of fans. During his Davis Cup match against Marin Cilic in Buenos Aires, a butterfly landed on Delpo’s ball just as he was about to serve. He had to use his racquet to shoo the insect away.

Del Potro went on to win the match 6-1, 6-2, 6-1, giving Argentina an insurmountable 3-1 lead in the Davis Cup quarterfinal. The team will go on to face the Czech Republic in Buenos Aires Sept. 14-16.

    In fact, he kissed the butterfly. He did not use his racquet to shoo her.

    Fair play !!!
