Roland Garros is just round the corner, and I am sure that those tennis lovers -- Clay expert Nadal, Playing legend Federer, Threatening Novak Djokovic, Improve Ferer; and their rivalry --- will take over all IPL fever flowing with the blood. The excitement on each point, inventive shots, fast rallies, irritating serve, throwing racket, pressure on breakout, classic drop shots, top spin, clay master and Of course Federer express -- all will inject new feelings in their body. So be ready - fill your fridge will some chips, snacks, lots of lots of beer coz its just two days to go!!!
So what is the biggest question or should I say excitement of this edition. Is it can Nadal make four? Or How Novac plays on clay? Or Will Federer loose again? Which one................
I think biggest question this time is "Can Federer pull this on off and complete the picture of "Greatest of all time" which will turnout to be his if he can do it?" He tried it three times before; 05,06,07 - came very close to win in 06, lost in close semi in 05 and lost his way after 2 sets in 07 final . But every time he steps in French open ...... and every eye, everyyy god dam eye ...is on him ... to watch him pull it. May be this is the time.
I see many people writing Federer off after his lost in Australian open, saying that Federer down is started, Federer mania is over and they backed their argument with his continue losses in subsequent tournament. That's the main reason I think this time he is much more dangerous to everyone else out there, cause he need to shut those mouth. And a guy like federer will not show his feeling on or off the court, he reply back by his game -- and remember he goes that best. I think these entire episodes may just make him wild enough to steal the cup this time. Remember Federer strength is to play best in tough time. He is the real one. When going gets tough, tough gets going ……. 'n' I have even seen him running in those times. With the guy like Federer; true champion; ego; lead by mile attitude and that backbone ... nothing below the perfect best can satisfy you.
May be he takes his chances and prove everybody wrong those who thought for a moment the Federer express is halted. I must warn them that this time when he will be back, it would be destructive. It would be never seen before show. A Federer better than Federer.
For all the tennis fans, best part of this edition should be watching Federer and Nadal running their way into final and more then a nail-biting final match. That would be perfect one. And somewhere in the mind or deep in heart we all want Federer to win this time and grab that seat where no one came close off.
I am closing this post with these lines and wishes all the best to Federer. Go Roger!!!
