London - The mood is grim in SW19 tonight as tennis governing body officials begin studying footage of the Men's Singles Finals win.

And reigning champion Rafael Nadal may yet be reinstated as the horrible truth of his Serb victor's delaying tactics began to unravel behind locked Wimbledon doors.

24 year-old Djokovic spent three and a half hours treading an illicit psychological tightrope by incessant pre-serve ball bouncing to disarm his opponent.

This may have been a deliberate destabilizing ploy to take command of the championship momentum worried stewards heard during the hush-hush postmortem.

The procrastination ploy certainly worked as quick fire Nadal lost natural rhythm while hanging around waiting to return serve.

"We've counted up to 17 pre-service bounces," the All England Tennis Club's Major Horatio 'Bunty' Hogstrotter (Bart) admitted to frantic colleagues.

"WTF was the umpire doing turning a blind eye?"

International rules are quite specific when it comes to psychological tactics such as delay.

A player about to serve may compose himself with a few pre-service ball bounces as long as it doesn't exceed the ten seconds rule.

Djokovic, it appears, took up to 25 in a deliberate and sustained mind games campaign.

Results of the stewards' adjudication are expected forthwith.
