Celiac.com 07/08/2014 - Gluten-free tennis superstar Novak Djokovic won his second Wimbledon title by outlasting the Swiss player, and seven-time champion, Roger Federer in five sets last Sunday.

The championship returns the 27-year-old Serb to the world’s No. 1 ranking. Djokovic has seen his fortune improve since moving to a gluten-free diet, and credits his subsequent successes on court to his diet and to his mental conditioning.

Celiac used to be considered a children's disease - so, by the old standards, you are a bit old to be diagnosed. We now know that Celiac can start at any age. I don't know if you are a male or a female, but untreated Celiac can lead to miscarriages and infertility. And all the other stuff...
