Archive for July, 2010

Who would’ve thought (I didn’t) that Wimbledon, 2010 would be filled with such excitement, drama, disappointments; tense filled moments from the word Go! To me, it seemed tennis would take a backseat with the football word cup fever but surprise surprise there was loads of action (still on) from the first day.

Roger Federer waves to the crowd after losing quater final at wimbeldon,2010

Is this goodbye?

First, it seemed Federer would be eliminated from the first round by
Alejandro Falla. Man, was that some match for Federer fans and it was in the 5th set, that we finally glimpsed a bit of his real charisma. And we all breathed a sigh of relief just to be in the verge of our seats his second round match against Illija Bozoljac. That was another awesome match and Federer just got lucky in winning that. Otherwise, Bozo had used all he had to entertain us and maybe cause a shocking upset. The interesting part was when the match ended, the crowd applauded the loser most and instead of the tradition that the losing party leaves the court before the winner, they both left together as if it was a doubles match! And yes they both had won.

The first two matches indicated that Federer needed to play his game and he did in the next two. But eventually we saw him leave in quarter finals and with it my interest in Wimbledon has diminished except for the part that I don’t want Nadal, Murray or Djokovic to win the title. So that leaves us with one obvious choice of Berdych to go on and surprise/shock us more by winning the title.

The other highlight for me was to see Aisam and Bopana reach Quarter finals and beyond. I followed their progress from first round and wanted them to go the whole distance but alas that didn’t happen as well. However, it was a good effort for them and their jackets with ‘Stop War, Start Tennis’ did really put them in the headlines. It wasn’t India and Pakistan playing across but Pakistan-India playing side by side! Awesome effort guys in reaching top 8. A great round of applause especially for Aisam for trying and portraying a better image of his country to the world.

And now how can I miss the never ending match which finally did end after three days and took 11 hours five minutes to finish. Watching it was a treat with both Isner and Mahut as winners for me. The mental strength for Mahut who always had to serve to remain in the match, both of their perseverance, physical strength and will to keep playing is too amazing for words.
