New Era in Tennis

A keen follower of Tennis from many years, I predicted Murray's win at a Grand Slam final in my earlier post & it turned out to be completely true in the next immediate Grand Slam. What I foresee in this year is more and more players able to win tournaments and reaching the finals of Grand slams too and possibly we will have at least one GS winner outside top 4 players. Although it may seem fairly logical & easy when we see Federer and Nadal not dominating, the reason I put forward is that there is not much contrasting styles or variety in the game now, hence less margin due to less differences in players. The single handed backhand, the serve and volley approach will be existing only in antique videos in future. A build up of a wide group of strong players is imminent unless again some considerably superior player emerges and dominates most others. For last few years grand slams used to have top 4 managing to reach the semifinals always but it doesn't look to happen now onwards. It will be more exciting to see more and more upsets and rapid emergence of newer, lower ranked players.

Murray's breakout final?

Andy Murray won the Junior US Open Championship in 2004.

He has been in the Top four from a long time nevertheless losing in the semis and Finals of Grand Slams from 2008.
That is 5 years wait.

This inability to win the Grand Slam Finals can be justified in a way by considering the challenging competition at the top of the Men's Tennis.

Yesterday he has won at the Wimbledon although he has not won the Wimbledon.

The way Federer defeated Sampras in 2001 and then his career went to a different orbit subsequently, Murray now looks set to enter the Grand Slam winner's club and Tennis record books in coming future where he is still relatively an unknown.

murphy's law for cooking

you manage to get all ingredients, everything is on schedule, you turn on the flame and put the contents in pressure cooker and suddenly you realize that pressure cooker's Rocker (steam regulator) is missing!

Then it usually takes time to find it as it is a small sized item. Suddenly it becomes the holy-grail and its absence stops the whole cooking process, when it is supposed to stop something else!
