Last Sunday i.e yesterday was the day when there were major upsets in the Sports arena- Ferrari’s Massa
It was Hamilton’s day at the Silverstone park after he drove with perfection to clinch the British GP in style when others were skidding around the park. Read about the British GP here.
Coming to the battle of the century- Federer Vs Nadal. It was the most exciting match i have ever seen (Though i watch Tennis less frequently) it was an edge of the seat thriller. Two set down with Nadal cruising in the 3rd set, i thought it was all over. With rain interruptions in between it only added to the curiosity of people like me and you anxiously glued to the Idiot box. I was watching the match at my cousin’s house. I came back home thinking that Nadal would finish it off in 3 sets. But when i came back and after an hour or so i heard someone shouting- outburst of anxiety and excitement- it was my cousin and i quickly googled for “Live Wimbledon Scores” and was it was good enough search term that directly took me to Wimbledon official website Live Scores and i was shocked to see 2-2 with 5th set going on. I quickly suggested my friend to watch the match and he asked me is it good? and i said its once in a life time opportunity. And then rain gods were back to business and the match resumed after sometime. Both the players kept winning their serves and for someone to emerge the champion he had to break the others serve. This is what Nadal did to clinch the final set 9-7 and dashed Federer hopes of equaling the record of 6 consecutive wins at the Wimbledon finals which was achieved by Bjorn Borg. But then Nadal repeated the feat of wining French Open and Wimbledon in the same year which was achieved by Borg in 1980. So it was Borg’s record at stake ;).
Nadal was crowned the Wimbledon 2008 Champion, he defeated defending and 5 time champion Federer 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7
