Here we come again in the world of tennis. It been different story since last one year or so. An iron man(NADAL) is trying to replace the real champion, the emperor(Roger Federer) . NOw is time when he has infact replaced him on the top spot at least in ATP ranking...

Now when Fight of supermacy is on its high in the courts of ROLLAND GARROS, two of the top heros are showing their class according to the expectation. And we hope for another thrilling final between these two rivals.

from last 4-5 years we were searching for someone who could at least give some fight to ROGER on any surface. And now we have one who is not only challenging him on Clay court but he is now looking for fight from teh champion on all the surfaces except US hard court surface.

At one place NADAL is looking for his record 5th straight FRENCH OPEN title where FEDERER is looking for his maiden FRENCH OPEN title. And we all can surely imagine that at this momemt, french open title is the most important think for FEDERER.

But Federer 's mind has all the way nadal in its every corner. It is looking very hard for him to beat the mind game nadal has already planted in federer's mind. But just before the french open federer has defeated nadal on clay court, sooooo there is some more excitement been put into this roland garros' annual event.


Today we have finished 7 days of this year's french open, everything was going almost expected, but today we saw a shocking unexpected result :

Number 4 seed Djokovic was stunned by 29th seed Kohlschreiber by 6-4, 6-4,6-4.

So now is time when we into 4th round , we should be ready to see many such results. Federer is through to the 4th round where he is meeting T Hass. Nadal's journey has been pretty smooth till now and he is also through to the 4th round after deafeating Hewitt in third round with relatively ease.

We have still Murray, verdasco, roddick monfils, Tsonga and few more who can go on on their days even against the champs. So we are surely in great fun field for the 8 days to come.

Also we have lots of spices in this having Sharapova winning her matches with great aggression, also Williams sisters are cruising as ever. Jankovic and Ivanovic are also playing their natural game to win their battles till now.

Lots of action still to take place in this great event, keep watching :)

IPL gives way to the Twenty twenty world cup

So IPL fever is over now.

Deccan Chargers won the tournament with a wonderful display of patience and consistancy throughout the tournament. Many Many congratulation to Them.Gilchrist , a wonderful personality showd his brilliance again with the bat and a great skill of captaincy was also one of his asset this year. Many young players from this team came up with few good performance but most importantly, when it was needed. Fully deserving No 1 spot to them.

Royal Challengers Bangalore were not behind, i don't say this because they reached the final of this tournament. We all will agree that they were also the deserving candidate because of the way they came back into this tournament. Here again we should not forget Ross taylor whose innings of 81(33) got them back in th etournament and they looked a new fresh, enthusiastic bunch under Indian 10fer.They started the tournament again in the same manner they finished last time. But once our Legend ANIL KUMBLE got the command of that team, it was an absolute turnaround. Wonderful fighter spirit made them one of the best of this year's IPL.

Delhi Dare Devils , They again had the tough luck, but more than the luck they lacked the determination which could give them a place they deserve on the paper. But poor display and inconsistancy of their main guns placed them at no 3.

Chennai Super Kings, they were looking the most dangerous bunch of 11 warriors. they had the best batsmen, allrounder, bowlers and wicket keeper, also one of the best emerging captain of the recent time. All in all it was a heavy unit. but again they displayed their talent one by one which made them to fall back to No 4 from no 3. good show but not the spirited performance.

KINGS 11 punjab, Yeah this team worked very hard under a tough captain who felt the pinch and could not keep that within himself. Captaincy made him underperformer clearly. This team was hit by bad weather cndition and could not recover til the end but battled hard. Should be satisfied with No 5, but has all the power to reach the TOP.

Rajsthan Royals, they kept fighting from the begining of the tournament. Lack of match winners was clearly visible and few good knocks from YUSUF gave a slight hope but a real flop of this year's IPL. Hard workers but skill needs to be developped.. No 6 , not bad.

Mumbai Indians, this is the team who could do a lot better than this. But again a wonderful bunch of 11 could not perform together and failed to leave any brillince in viewer;s eyes.. We certainly had more hopes from them, but a real bad show ... No 7 doesn't look good but the performance deserves this spot.

Kolkata Knight riders, Yes this is the team who was in every othet story before the start of this tournament. But as the tournament reached one third of its stage, many people started forgetting this team, ans when we finished half of the league matches KKR was out of scene, and others teams were looking forward to get some good points aganst them. But they sneaked two victories in their last two matches, which must keep their player's cricket at their place. Fully deservig No 8 spot for them.

Now we are ready for the next big one, T-20 World cup in England...
