He cried, yes he did… Hysterically cried after winning the Wimbledon Final. The stakes were sky high! And he knew it! Yes, m talking about Roger Federer here… who was playing his 9th consecutive grand slam final and on his way to his 5th wimbledon title… what his supporters touted would be a cake-walk for him… (Nishit knows what i mean 😉 ) turned out to be a living nightmare!
The game started with an ace from Fed… who went on to win three consecutive sets. This put the spaniard (Rafael Nadal) on fire who completely turned the game from 3-0 to 3-3 and then a rather unfortunate 7-6 in favour of Fed. The set lasted for a whole damn one hour! 😐
The usually aggressive Federer lost his charm in front of the calm, composed and fighter Rafael Nadal! The “Grass-court-king“, was struggling to hit directly, with unforced errors so many, that u would actually sit back and think “Is that Fed playin?”
On the other hand, it takes quite a grit to challenge someone on his turf! Which Nadal did… He made Federer sweat for every single point…Federer got nervous and tensed, just like his millions of fans…! Nadal made his win so damn tough! It was actually quite a shame for him…!!! 😐
The score finally read: 7-6 4-6 7-6 2-6 6-2
If you notice, except for the last one, the other sets Federer won, were won after soooo much of effort! His usual cake-walk technique failed in front of Nadal. After this match, I am all the more crazy about Nadal!! 😀
