Winning a Grand Slam title is something that every tennis player grows up dreaming of. Coming out on top of the most grueling tournaments in the sport, to the standing ovation of the largest crowds in the game… that’s what dreams are made of.
So, how would you celebrate the moment? Would you drop to your knees and soak in the moment? Would you fist pump and acknowledge the crowd?
…Would you play dead, like a fish on a dock?
Daniil Medvedev finally picked up his first Grand Slam title when he defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets at the U.S. Open, and he celebrated in a very unique way. Immediately after Djokovic’s return hit the mesh, officially solidifying Medvedev’s status as a Grand Slam title winner, he dropped to the court and laid there motionless for a few seconds.
After the game, Medvedev was giving his Championship speech when he explained what he did at the end. Well, he didn’t so much explain as he did give a clue.
“L2 + Left.”
All of a sudden, FIFA players all over the world lit Twitter on fire. L2 + Left is the PlayStation code to make players “dead fish” on FIFA.
