Djokovic vs. “The World”

Good morning, dear friends. Yesterday there were many qualification games played for different tournaments – Europe and World Cup competition- who will qualify. But actually I was impressed by the game of Djokovic played against Isner.

What we had seen in this game? It was obvious that Isner suffered a lot from the smart passing shots, diagonals and counter-attacks of the Serbian. Actually it was a game between two giants, not only big man , but tennis players who have that power in serving and hitting the ball, that they almost could kill some one. The interesting thing here is while I was watching Djokovic , I did see some of the best moves and tricks from his opponents now and during the years.

If you want to be a good tennis player, you have to move very soft, to hit hard and to be that fast with the legs, like Mohammad Ali in the previous times of like Mike Tyson, you have to be having string wings , which will move your legs right after the ball. Djokovic is a complex machine. He has everything and had learnt a lot during the past 5 years. Let’s me show you things from my point of view:

  1. He was that precise and sharp as Federer in his young age. To be able to do and take best from the situation is very rare quality. This quality belongs simply to geniuses.
  2. He is now strong enough as Nadal, Murry and Kevin Anderson. That power , gives hi the strength to control the game in every aspect and details, no matter if he is on losing or winning run.
  3. His service became sharper and stronger and productive for aces. Boris Becker was a good player, obviously he is also one of the best trainers nowadays.
  4. Concentration – I will tell you this way, the concentration of good players helps them to see situations and game as a whole from different angles. The same is in chess, football, poker, basketball. Djokovic is smart and intelligent enough to be good in some other sports ,not only in tennis.
  5. 6-2 , 6-2 : when you see that result in tennis , you think that other player was injured or not motivated enough. The reason was that Djokovic is playing tennis from another dimension, from another universe.
  6. People, fan and supporters like him a lot. I saw the crowd yesterday in Beijing, they were crazy about him. Around the big players, there is some kind of magic around them.
  7. Let’s say big applause for Isner. He is not a bad tennis player. He is in the top of the standings for aces in tennis for all times. But when you have a perfectly shaped, conditioned and motivated machine- you are not able to do anything , than losing with a head up .

I was going to give you some football pick, but changed my mind, while I was thinking about the tennis game in Beijing. I am actually a fan of Nadal, but he will not soon be in the shape we are all used to see him in. The Serbian is born 575 km from where I am now writing this post and maybe we have something common. While I am sitting and writing the idea came to my mind. What we have in common is- passion.  He has it for playing and winning in tennis, I have it to write for those who inspire and provoke me to write each time for the best of mankind invention- sports. Keep being the best Nole, I feel sad about Nadal and Grigor Dimitov , but when we have geniuses and smart players, all we have to do is show  them respect and admiration.

 

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 🙂

 

 

Djokovic vs. Federer (genius at work)

Two great men, two heroes,two symbols of modern tennis will meat each other at the final of Wimbledon 2015.

Djokovic was brilliant against Gasqye. Federer did not let any hope to Murray with plays of high class.

Tennis on grass is something very special and unique. There are few chosen on the planet who can play perfectly well at these  conditions. Ball is faster,options for injuries are bigger.

As a tipster and bettor my advice for you is to take the over 3.5 sets line and over games line in this brilliant final,which will soon bega.

As a conclusion,I would picj Djokovic as the winner in the game. He is younger,faster and hes got that determination to fight for every single ball and point in the set. Beker is probably the best choice for trainer. Both Djokovic and Beker made a “killing”duo ,who will rule the empire of tennis for along years period.

 

Djokovic is good(God)

Anyone of you who had seen the game from Wimbledon man session yesterday, between Djokovic and Kevin Anderson, would have gone crazy and out of mind and explanation. Djokovic turned back, after loosing 0-2 sets and made the game to go to last 5th set and even took it with 7-5 games.

The conclusion after this game, especially for me , is that Djokovic is hell of a good player. What he did is a bravery. I had watched many wonderful men and women, but he did the incredible things and made returns and plays, that only Gods are only capable of.

Just or the stats after Kevin Anderson took the first 2 sets, he did have 16 aces. It is also magnificent, meaning that you are playing versus the best, and you would have been capable to lay on a 150% of your abilities. Than Djokovic revived and took the other 2 sets : 6-1 and 6-4, and than darkness fallen down.

Second part of this dramatic game, was played yesterday. Everyone of the players took the game, he was serving in. Than Djokovic made a break and you perfectly know what happened at the end. All the crowd on the central court + all the fans in front of the TV ‘s were on their legs , shouting probably for the best tennis player ever born.

Actually I am a keen fan of Rafael Nadal, but after many injuries he had , he is not the same machine and magnificent “maestro” as he was back in the days. Federer is the genius, who never does sleep and he also has one of the most precise backhands and forehands. Andy Murray is gaining confidence with every game he plays. Dimitrov changed his trainer.

Among this wonderful tennis players, there is one name who is shining that bright, that could be seen and recognized in the whole universe – Djokovic . He is definitely a human, but the grand and marvelous plays , he made in his match with K. Andersson were blessed by God.

Let’s hope we could watch the magnificence of the Serbian player for many years ahead..
