Since I wrote a post about football , I thought I would even it up by writing one for tennis.Its a sport I started watching when I was still a kid precisely because my maternal family is totally into it.They would talk about Borg-Mcenroe,Edbarg -Becker, Sampras-Agassi rivalries with such an intense enthusiasm that it intrigued me.So I started following up on the sport and fell totally in love with it.Then I realised where that enthusiasm came from because I would get really excited about any Federer-Roddick match and now the Federer-Nadal rivalry is such a talking point.
I remember having a huge (and I mean colossal) crush on Andy Roddick when he was at the peak of his career and also remember praying for him during the 2003 US open finals.Hes still a favourite but he isnt playing that well now and well who doesnt like Roger Federer.He is perhaps the greatest the game has ever seen and his grace and demenaour,the way he conducts himself both on and off the court and his super nice interviews make him a favourite.Apart from these 2 players my current favourite is Novak Djokovic who created a history of sorts by beating Roddick,Nadal and Federer back to back at the ATP masters and his antics,imitation skills and fab sense of humuor have made me lose my heart to him although hes not that good looking.
Yesterday night I sat for continuous 4 hours to watch him play and win at the US open and he just keeps growing from strength to strength.As for the handsome guys on tour there is always Tommy Haas,Marat Safin,A-Rod ,Feliciano Lopez and Blake!!!!
Heres hoping for another Nadal-Federer match but I hope and pray that its a Roddick-Djokovic final.
