Hi! I as well played tennis and on a gluten free diet. I had to give up on most foods that I am taking before and boy its working wonders on me. I became faster and attentive in playing the sports. I am no pro but maybe in due time compete with excellent players out there.

I bring an energy bar, a banana and I'm good to go. I've been avoiding Gatorade since I heard it has gluten? Can anyone confirm this? I feel like Novak on the court lol

During a recent interview he said this. Q. We know you have changed your diet from the end of last year. I was wondering what you ate last night and what you ate this morning right before the match, and what are you going to do tonight?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I'll give you a simple answer: last night I didn't have any gluten, and tonight I will have a bunch of gluten ? and alcohol.

So Djokovic is not really 100 % gluten free , thanks to people like him our disease will mean a fad diet , oh well hope he the gluten he ate will make him lose everything he won . Del Potro beat him a few days after that interview :) I can't stand 50 % gluten free fad dieters !

I bet he goes 100% weeks before a Grand Slam and also he probably had gluten before he lost to Federer back in France

I bet he doesn't even know what 100 % gluten free means lol . I'm no fan of Federer , but Federer completely outplayed him at the French Open. It had nothing to do with if Djokovic ate gluten before the match lol . I don't believe Djokovic has got a problem with gluten after hearing that interview. He should just go back to normal food and stop making the only treatment for celiac disease look like a fad diet.

No , I don't think so , but a lot of people were saying on blogs comments like , " eat as much gluten as you like you deserve it " etc . He doesn't do any favour's to celiac's . Sure it's up to him what to eat but know need to brag about it . Now people think Djokovic eats gluten so I should also eat gluten and I don't because i'm just being fussy by eating gluten free .

Well he makes it look like gluten free diet turns you into a super human lol . I meant him saying he is gluten free but still eats gluten is bad for celiac's . Unfortunately I haven't been able to play tennis for 6 years due to back and other stomach problems . But before I was diagnosed I won a few tournament and after I was diagnosed I didn't have enough energy to play lol . Has being gluten free helped you ?

Sorry for the late answer, yes it has helped me plenty. My muscles used to be really tense from anxiety.
