Novak Djokovic ends Rendy Lu Yen-hsun's fairytale run

Rendy Lu Yen-hsun's incredible run at the Wimbledon has finally come to an end.

He lost to Novak Djokovic 3-6, 2-6, 2-6 in the quarterfinal match yesterday.

But here's the good news. Rendy, the no.1 player in Asia has won so many new fans for the past two weeks.

His Facebook fanpage has soared from 600+ to more than 3000+ in just a couple of days.

A visit to his profile page on the Wimbledon tournament's official website, by scrolling down and counting the number of comments made by fans and then comparing him to popular players like Roger Federer (432), Rafael Nadal (423), Novak Djokovic (94) and Andy Murray (125), you'll know Rendy (713) is the hottest guy in SW19 right now!

Now the greatest news of all is that Rendy could have reach a career-high no. 42 in the world rankings next week! I'll keep you guys posted once the official rankings are available.

All the best to Rendy in upcoming tournaments.

I'm definitely looking forward to meeting him again in Malaysia (if he plays here at the ATP250 Malaysian Open) in September.
