Pete Sampras coming back (almost) !!!

I have sometimes back posted an entry on our older blog … tennism.blogspot.com regarding Pete Sampras making a comeback. Well people, now its OFFICIALLY official. Pete Sampras making a comeback for Champions Tour and he will begin by playing in Boston on 2nd may. Ch’s tour includes players who have been ranked between 1-5, has won a Grandslam, been on davis cup team of their country and that will have them eligible for the tour. Quite a few famous named players are enlisted and it should be a good test for pistol pete to shake off the rust of 5 year since he last played competitive tennis when he defeated Andre Agassi in his last match at the 2002 US open.

Now, people have been talking about Sampras and his sudden re-interest in the game as signs that he is getting nightmares with Roger Federer smashing all the records and soon overhauling Pete’s record of 14 grandslams. I doubt thats the case – though i wouldnt be surprise if it is – but the thing is that Sampras has repeatedly said that he will NOT MAKE A COMEBACK on the ATP tour no matter what. Despite quite a few pros and experts are of the opinion that if sampras does make a comeback he has the game and the skill to upend quite a few of those top-1o players, i beg to differ with that opinion and thankfully, sampras realizes that just as well. I am sure he doesnt want to blot his legacy by rejoining the tour and then getting worked around by some unknown journey man, the way George Bastl did it at Wimbledon 2002, possibly the worst loss of sampras’s career. But now … that he is going to make a comeback and i am VERY sure of the fact that at one point or the other, rog and pete are going to face off each other. Off the court or On the court, they are bound to run into each other. and if they do … by God i hope they play a set or two and we ll have two of the FINEST PLAYERS OF ALL TIME against each other. What a match thats going to be ! ……. *dreamy sigh*

Side note … i read this VERY interesting article about Anna Kournikova … who i used to crush about like mad. After looking at her recent pics, i guess i might rekindle my lust-affair with her again 😀


rafanadalihavepainherei1ee.jpg“I have pain here, in my famous ass” – Rafael Nadal (1 min 23 sec version)

 We kid you not. His exact words!

Roger Federer: Dude…heh, i like so totally kicked your ass

Andy Roddick: Yeah….

Rod Laver rated the Australian Open 2007 Semi-final between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick, as as E for Excellent (for Rog, ofcourse). yeah, we thought it was okay too 😉

The Art of Being Rafael Nadal

The Kid

 

Its easy to get hooked on to Rafael Nadal. Let’s face it, there’s not much not to like about the kid: jumping on the balls of his ankles before the match starts, stooping for a picker-upper orange-flavored energy sachet, and his genuine passion for the game. “Yeah, but, he’s always so in-you-face with the fist pumps”, say Those Who Just Don’t Get It. Let’s get this clear just once, since i find it extremely tiring explaining it over and over to casual fans – Nadal’s medium of fist-pumping is the exact opposite of what Hewitt tries to do: while the Little Aussie’s only goal is to piss the opponent off in at “gotcha, you little..” kind of way, the Nadal Pump’s sole purpose is to pump himself up. If you pay attention and notice, he makes sure to turn his back to his opponent during his routine pumps, or to just eye his box to make SURE the guy across the net knows that he does not mean to offend. It’s just part of the spanish passion that plays out – some guys keep it in and pump themselves up verbosely in their own heads (pass the Federer, please)- while others like the occasional verbal telling-on (did i just make that up?) to keep them going. Please know, the boy means no harm. He’s just a lovepot of good nature.

 

Which takes us to the subject of Nadal’s good nature.

 

These youngsters coming up, they certainly forget to pick up their Thank Yous and Pleases before they wiped their shoes on the doormat, didn’t they? Mr “Merry” Murray seems to find peace by muttering an (audible) f-word in every other of his mumblings. Or worse, he directs them to Brad Gilbert. When the likes of Djerkovic, ahem, i meant Djokovic (did you really now, Plath?) go on public television and say things like “I only have three words for Roger Federer: ‘He is going down!'” – are not only ungentlemanly (besides being something that you will ultimately regret, come Play Day) and need a bit of sharpening of the math skills (they’re four words not three, Djoker) – you take that spectrum of the scale and try to place the likes of Nadal onto it, and you’ll find he’s a magnet that just won’t stick there.

 

If you haven’t had the pleasures of reading a post-match interview of his, you are far far behind friend, for not only is the spanish-tinted english the most amusing thing since Premiere League footy, you’ll find him effortlessly being humble, gracious, and unwilling to point fingers or raise any sort of stinging remarks to the otherwise Prodding for Controversy Since the Doughnuts aren’t Fun This Morning journos. No really, Nadal has been pounded with “So Ljubicic says he wants Federer to win in the final, not you, what do you have to say to that?” and “So Monfils recently said in an interview he can beat you easy, what do you have to say to that” and the suchlike, yet the Spaniard That Jesus Loved bows with good grace, and a showing of a very Christian upbringing, miraculously avoids saying anything the least bit retaliatory, rather, RESPECTS the quoted player in question.. jesus…

 

They even fish him with the occasioanl Federer – but it fails. “So you’ve played Federer six times and won the last four – you have beaten him on every surface, surely, you are no longer afraid of him, and know you have a great chance in the final, what do you have to say to that?” – and the Kid takes it better then an angels wings, correcting the questioner quickly that Federer is number one in the world, most probably in history, and that’s that, next question please, no?

 

Again, how can you NOT love the Kid?
