Old man is back !

Good day , dear fans of tennis. I must apologize to all of you, who have not seen recently articles about this wonderful sport. Recently one big tourney has ended and one old man showed to the world , how the things are right and precisely to be done 🙂

I have to admit that I watched almost all the games in the wonderful Australian Open 2017 tennis tournament. There was one game which directed the bets and the eyes of the professional critics in this sport. It was Nishikori vs. Federer. Here is the time mad space to tell, that I am a huge fan of Rafa Nadal, but the only one who stands next to him in grandeur and in the spot of the lights of the cameras is the Swiss Genius – Fed man 🙂 I do not know if there is any so complex player who can hit the ball that smart, that even referees lose their breath and attention. He is the big master of back hand with one arm and he is so damn concentrated. In the game with Nishkori he made things from other planet. I am watching tennis for nearly 30 year and cannot remember such incredible performance.

Yes, Roger is old. But you now the sentence of old and gold. Now he see how gold is he. The old man revealed all his potential, capacity and soldier spirit.. This 36 years old man, was moving like a 18 years old youngster, like this was his first tourney , he want to win and to gain attention of the public. Yes, he won his 18th title  from Grand Slam Competition and this is gorgeous. But the most important is the grace and the genius hits of the ball, he did all the games.

About the final, who ever dreamed of better one? The old friends and furious enemies on the court . Those two men are like two lions, who have that sports hatred and talent. They remind me a lot about Agassi and Sampras. In those competition true man and real friendships got born. There are moment in life, when you are waiting to see such suspense, show or even performance , that moment which you will share with your children and best friends. For that moment we love and die for watching tennis.

On the last place, I like to say special thanks to Mr. Federer. No one was thinking he will made to the final or even to win it. He showed that talent has no age motivation has heart and will for success is the main moment to keep winning and showing to the world, that if you are on the feet, stood up and focused, no power or top tennis players can stop you. His determination is motivating , not only for me, I guess for you and for all the fans around. One last word before it go. If you remember there was a slogan , when he was playing : “Shht , genius at work .. ”

 

 

Sports madness

Hello, dear all. It is raining in my country and I am very positive about how we will grow up. I say “we”  , because without you, my blog would have gone away, long time ago. Writing is not just a pleasure , it is an adrenaline that does not let you down till you finished your post, or until the last word of idea that is coming regularly to your mind and dreams.

The dream come trough is when you watch, participate, feel, love, adore and cannot live without sports. In my daily routine I do practice fitness, basketball and table tennis. It is no need to explain you what energy you have and how powerful you feel after practicing the most beloved sports. It does not matter from the age or from your social status, but sports are the most valuable motive and scenario, which helps us to survive during the long way called life and freedom.

Have you ever thought that the most free people are the mad ones, they do not obey rules and do follow directions , whispered by their inner voice. We have come today to speak about sports madness and how I had such one several years ago. It was a crazy decision taken by impulse and I never regret about it. I gave myself a word , that I will watch sports events for 24 hours, no matter of the sport, no matter of where the event is watched – PC or TV, just watching and obtaining emotions .During that process , I tried to keep all of my senses open, because afterwards, I was about to make an analysis.

This day was a sunny Saturday morning. I started with football from South Korea, with the morning coffee. The next episode was a game from Japan, J-League 2.( When you are totally in love with sports, the time just passes like that, like a blink of an eye, or just a click with  fingers). The third game was Philippine’s basketball game(in this country, they do play very nice and interesting games, with many players from US and the rules of NBA ). On the scene came the early game from UK, Premier League on the TV. There are moment, when you just hear how the fans are singing. I have my favorite moments , when I listen to fans singing from Italy, UK ,Germany,Japan and Argentina. The most memorable thing is that they sing not only during the time-play of the game , they sing even before and after it. The feeling is gorgeous. It was time to change the sports and watch some tennis. I love Nadal, Rafa, This is the guy who knows how to play not only in clay. He has very smart hits and is moving like a tiger all around the corner, chasing every hard ball accepted. In my opinion there are top 5 best tennis player for all time – Nadal,Djokovic, Federer , Agassi and Sampras.  Suddenly , I felt interest to watch football again and switched the TV on Eurosport for a German, Bundesliga game. I have to say big thanks and to ask you to move your hats down for the fans of Borussia Dortmund ,Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich. In all of the games of these teams, I had watched, they were that noisy , that the feeling was as you have been in the center of volcano or like storm going strong. During the time of that marathon, I tried not to be for a long period away from my source of sports madness.It was 20:05 and was about time for the early game in NBA. When I watch basketball, I do totally crazy. I begin to shout , to jump , to say bad words 🙂 I am totally in the game. I love this game and most magical and amazing team is when the ball goes in the basket, trough the net. Three hours later , there was another game from the best basketball Championship all around the globe. I watched a lot and decided till 09:00 in the morning on the next day to watch only baseball. It was not long ago, when I traded baseball. It is not that popular here , in Europe, but it is a sport with a special magic and blaze of glory.

After the final game ended , it was time to mane an analysis, about what was the feeling during that 24 hours marathon in watching different sports:

  1. My mind was full with new impressions and ideas. My eyes were hurting , but it did not matter. I was happy.
  2. Sports is some special world, when you are in the deep parts of it, you never want to leave it or to stay away from it. I was one with fans, with players and trainers.
  3. I was united with ball, net , bat and the spirit of the different games. I watched the eyes and the strategies in different games , no matter if they were individual or team ones including.
  4. I watched every game in a different language . But the most powerful and inspiring thing is that the language of sport is one and it is unified. If you are in love with what you watch and practice , you perfectly realize what and how is happening.
  5. My adrenaline was on an unknown level. This was what I wanted to achieve, to jump that high in order to get to a new orbit. I love that orbit and that place.

Actually, my dear friends, I introduced you to a small part of my universe. I guess, you liked being part of it. If I was not in deep love with sports, we might never had met each other. The pleasure is all mine . See you in the next post. Be mad for every thing that you do, in order to shine not just to glitter 🙂
