CHANGING of the GUARD?



After last year's epic Wimbledon Final,

the first championship confrontation in 2009
between the two greatest Tennis Players
in the world promised even more displays of
sheer genius and genuine passion.







The 5-set Australian Open Final did not disappoint;
but once again, the Spaniard topped the Swiss.






Rafael Nadal exulted,





Roger Federer perhaps sensed the end of an era.




It was a rare show of emotion for the former #1,




but in an age where success in sports
is measured less by the triumphs of will
and more by the dollars earned,





it was truly a poignant moment when Rafa comforted Fed,
and confirmed that for these two gentleman warriors,
the old fashioned values of true sportsmanship still prevail.










Vamos Rafa!!!!





Vamos Roger!!!

Yehey! The "Wedgy" guy won! Poor Roger, he lost his concentration on the last set. He lost his composure that made him cry! I know he was upset for himself. And good thing for Rafa, in his acceptance speech, he was diplomatic.

Sorry Roger, equalizing the "Great Pete" would take some time. I hope he could improve his game on clay, because the next slam will be at the Roland Garros clay.He might have his luck there.

Vamos Rafa!

PS: Whoever advice Rafa to change his underwear, he must be crazy. His "wedgy" stunts are part of his signature moves. Just ask Novak Djokovic!
