Former India captain MS Dhoni’s love for tennis was evident when he was in attendance at the Centre Court to watch the Wimbledon men’s quarterfinal between Rafael Nadal and Taylor Fritz on Wednesday.

The keenly-contested match went down the wire and it was the 22-time Grand Slam champion who staged a comeback to win the contest in five sets to progress to the semi-finals of the ongoing Grand Slam.

The official Twitter handle of Wimbledon posted the picture of Dhoni watching the match and captioned the post as: ‘An Indian icon watching on.’

Earlier, Dhoni's IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSJ) also uploaded the same picture on its Twitter handle and captioned the post as: ‘Yellove All!’.

The likes of David Beckham and Sunil Gavaskar were also in attendance for the high-voltage match.

Notably, Dhoni is celebrating his 41st birthday with his family members in England.

Under Dhoni's leadership, India clinched the 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy titles. He is the only skipper in the world to have successfully led his team in winning all three major ICC tournaments.
