French Open 2014 - All the best, Rafa!

French open this time around has been very unpredictable. Most of the women top players were sent packed by the new comers or rather by their fellow but young players. As I write this, it's known now that Maria Sharapova has won the women's singles title for this year. Congratulations to her and her team. Her opponent in the final, the young Halep has come long way in this tournament. Congratulations to her as well. Hope to see more fight from this young lady.

Road was ended long back for the former champion, Roger Federer. Good that he has got more time to spend with his twin kids. Although he might be enjoying his time with them, I'm sure at the back of his mind his game must be played on. Champion players don't leave the defeats easily. I wish his all the very best to cope up and come back fighting. Andy Murray has done a good job until the Semifinal clash with the title favorite and reigning champion, Rafael Nadal. Rafa proved too good to him. Djokovic to meet the too proven Rafa in the men's singles final clash today. It might be Rafa's play field, having been a champion here for eight times, but knowing Djokovic, I'm sure he will fight till his last effort and the opponent's championship point. 

I'd live to watch this match but my bad luck, Tata Sky and Neo Prime are not in good terms. It's not getting telecasted on Tata Sky! I might opt for the live stream of the last set, I hope there will be a decider set played today on the clay. 

As always, my support is for Rafael Nadal. Ever since I read his autobiography, I stopped expecting his win, for that matter any player's win. A lot goes around them and without knowing an inch of it, we keep our expectations high. That's not fair I feel. Well, nonetheless, I wish him all the best to give his best  possible performance. May the best win.
