Australian Open Tennis Final Match 2009 - Nadal vs Federer!

So, the Australian Open Tennis Championship has come to an end with lot of emotions on the part of the players and the viewers alike! I reaslized later that I too had tears in my eyes when Federer cried. We think that players like Borg, Sampras, Federer etc. are hard core people whose thoughts are aimed at winning, winning and winning. They never express their feelings like Agassi, McEnroe (I like them very much because they are good players plus very emotional like small children!) and the Williams sisters. I admire the Williams sisters for their consistency in winning - they must have put so much hard work behind their winning the trophies - so many of them together!

We can understand what Federer's feelings must have been when he was crying so much - he must have put so many years of hard work to win the Grand Slams continuously and losing must have been a shock to him and it is slowly happening often! He is 27 now and Nadal is 22 - the future is for Nadal, mostly for the next 3-4 years at least. Federer has poured out his emotions this time and he will accept his age, which is a week point for players of his calibre.

Nadal also is an emotionless face and this time he has won the trophy by sheer hard work but Federer has won the hearts of the spectators and people like us who watch them play, on TV and stole the show! I felt bad for Nadal also because he was not noticed for winning the trophy but Federer cried and cried and this match will be remembered for that, I think!

We ordinary people still remember Connors, Stephan Edberg (do you know - the tennis player symbol which comes in a corner of the TV screen of the Australian open, is of Edberg who is like a text book for tennis, it seems!), Borg, Agassi, Sampras, Chris Evert Lloyd, Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Seles and so many others. Federer will be included in the list! Hope he will play good matches for some more years!

They are legends. I have got 2 sons who are grown-ups now. They were school children in those days and all the four of us used to take sides and cheer them as if we were watching the matches in person. Try 100% to enjoy the company of children when they are in school. They are the happiest days, Ramesh.

In my family, my DIl is for n
Nadal and SIL is mad for Federer, so we have good match in the house..but i salute our Sania and Bhopathi for winning grand slam:)

Sandhya said...

Yes, Sania and Bhupathi were great. Last year or before that, I forgot, Bhupathi won Mixed Doubles with a Japanese girl, right? This time both are Indians and this is the first time too!

Yes, it was a classic win by Nadal, stopping Federer from equalling the all-time record of the great Sampras.

Roger Federer is such a brilliant player, but yes, he was overcome with a lot of emotions after losing.

Nadal never looked tired even in the last serve! We are going to see him win the trophies for some more years!

Thanks.
