Wimbledon.

Federer lost! Federer lost! Federer lost! Boo hoo hoo, Federer lost! But Nadal totally deserved to win. The best player truly won today. But what a match! Almost 7 hours of not changing the TV channel. That has got to be the first time in our household. I became so impatient at the end. Even asked Ashu to pray for "Federer Uncle". But it was too late, I guess. Why else would nt God listen to a little girls prayer, I ask! I remember watching the 2005 US Open when Ashu was a baby. Federer won against Agassi. Now with Baby Antu, the winds have changed. Sigh!

What with winning the
Euro 2008 Football Championship last weekend, Spain is surely on a roll! Here's Ashu in her Euro T shirt practicing her moves. If not a Tennis player, she has good chance to become a goalkeeper, methinks! ;)

Cha! Fedex had to lose to that punk;who played exceptional tennis of course ! But what a comeback,man! Made me wonder how awesome it would have been to see Federer play against or Becker or Sampras .

Ashu has started with praying for your favorites ? way to go :)

Missed the game, but was rooting for
Federer. I guess all good things come to an end sooner or later, but he was truly one of the greats.

Ya! I am a big fan of King Fed, but would always wonder if there would be anyone that would beat him. So in that sense, I was so proud of Nadal-truly a well-deserved, well-fought win. I am sure that in itself adds to the thrill of winning the title. Well worth the 7hrs+ match, the adrenali rush, the excitement-wish I could've watched it live!

Congratulations btw :)

Almost strangled R coz he was rooting for Nadal. But in the end, I guess, Nadal was in awesome form and deserved to win. here's hoping Federer uncle will win again next year!
