SUPER DOOPER SUNDAY!!!

The past Sunday was the best ever day a typical sports fan would ever ask for…i was stuck to the TV screens the whole day occupied with F1,cricket & tennis all happening on the same day and all with the championship at stake…a look back at the events that unraveled on SUPER SUNDAY

TENNIS:MEN’S WIMBLEDON FINAL: Here it was the end of an era…the Federrer era as everyone calls it…as the lights faded in center court, Wimbledon had a new King…RAFAEL NADAL dethroned ROGER FEDERRER 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-7 9-7 on a history defining day in one of the longest matches Wimbledon has ever seen…it lasted about 12 minutes short of 5 hours…such was the competition between the two players…thanks to the rain delays we were able to catch our breaths and root for our favorite player and on Sunday there was only one…RAFAEL NADAL..RAFA was only the second man to have a FRENCH OPEN & WIMBLEDON DOUBLE after Bjorn Borg in 1980…as the match ended it was late, very late, but not too late for the coronation of a new king to begin. I m happy that my predictions were bang on!!!…Fed up wid Federrer,try Nadal…and VAMOS RAFA!!! is all i can say…

CRICKET:ASIA CUP 2008:Hmmn…i am wondering wat to write here, india had a taste of MENDIS-CINE and thats it…i will still keep backing India anyway but for everyone who thought murali was dangerous…enter rookie AJANTHA MENDIS and indian wickets fell like 9 pins…i had said in my earlier blog that it was a moment of magic from a single person that could win the team the ASIA CUP ’08 and mendis just proved it rite with his CARROM BALL he pocketed 6 wickets and it was all over before it began…at the end of the match his figures read 8-1-13-6…no surprises then that MENDIS was also MAN OF THE MATCH & SERIES…

CRICKET:AUS Vs WI:It was just another day in the office for Clarke as captain and he lead his team to a 5-0 whitewash over once invincible now just in rubble WI team…WI are going nowhere with this kind of cricket…they were smashed everywhere with D HUSSEY’s 52(21) and LUKE RONCHI’s 64(28) and FIDEL EDWARDS returning with figures of 9-0-86-3…the costliest by any WI bowler…their batting was nothin much to talk about as they were bundled out for 172…the test series victory scoreline 2-0 didn justify what it showed but with the ODI series it was just what the doctor ordered for the upcoming young aussie side…

F1 RACING:BRITISH GP: It was one of the seasons tight races and LEWIS HAMILTON tasted victory at home…it was not just any victory, it was a well timed victory, an important one that put him right on top & back in contention for the coveted Driver’s championship…it rained in Britain and it was tough driving conditions…but Lewis was determined…he was a man on a mission…nothing could stop him on Sunday as he laughed all the way to the podium as KIMI “ICEMAN” RAIKONNEN could only finish 4th owing to a  bad decision over tyres and teammate & french GP champion MASSA a disappointing 14th…that was all enough to keep all three of them TIED at 48 points each at the end of 9 races & with 9 races left in the season it could be anybody’s and all we could expect is a speedy battle!!!…btw there was a man called ALONSO…where is he???

TENNIS:WOMEN’S WIMBLEDON FINAL: It was yet again a family affair at Wimbledon finals as the Williams sisters battled it out for glory on Saturday ,it was VENUS WILLIAMS who rose on the all Williams day winning her 5th title at Wimbledon…VENUS played some top tennis to see the back of her sister…it was a close match but ended in just 2 sets…SERENA rued her loss tellin that she was not at her very best but u cannot take away anythin from VENUS…i got my predictions right here too…and it was a double treat as the sisters then pairing up for the LADIES DOUBLES won that too…wat more can we ask in an all WILLIAMS day…

Wat more do u want in a weekend like this…just amaaaaaaaaaazing!!!!

  1. What an epic five set match by the two titans of tennis. My eyes were glued to this marathon for 4 hours and 48 minutes! This was the greatest and perhaps the best quality tennis I have ever witnessed in any tournament. Congrats to Nadal for taking down the great Federer.
