Deepika Padukone and sister Anisha attended the Wimbledon men’s final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in England on Sunday and while we await Deepika’s posts, Anisha made our day by sharing glimpses from their epic day. Anisha, a golfer, shared several photos of the match on her Instagram profile, as well as a picture of the sisters posing together, both dressed appropriately in white. “The kind of stuff sporting dreams are made of,” Anisha captioned her photo. And before you take a look at the aforementioned pictures, we must tell you that the stuff which make “sporting dreams” also includes delicious pastries and sandwiches. Sounds yum?

Both Prakash Padukone’s daughters have inherited his sporting genes. Anisha, as mentioned, is a golfer; Deepika played badminton at a national level and considered sticking to it before switching to modelling and acting. The Padukones were at the 2015 Wimbledon men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer (the result was the same as this year). Deepika also knows Djoker socially – a couple of years ago, they caught up over dinner in Los Angeles where she was filming xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. In 2014, Deepika, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar joined Djokovic and Federer at an International Premier Tennis League friendly in New Delhi. Sunil Gavaskar, Sania Mirza and Riteish Deshmukh were also present.

Here are pictures from the event we are talking about.
