Let me list the three 'What the' moments I've had recently
- Me updating my blog twice in two days. Definitely WTB worthy. But actually kinda trivial, since I wouldn't have updated if the other two WTB's hadn't happened.
- Federer beating Roddick in
5-7 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 16-14.
Lets put that in perspective,
Venus Williams en route to the "other" men's final beat Safina 6-1 6-0. That's a grand total of 13 games. Roddick won 14 games in just the last set.
Talk about unstoppable force and immovable object. I've never liked Roddick that much. But man can that guy give a fight. Were they paying tribute to Nadal's stamina or something, seeing who can outlast the other. The fact that Federer took all of 39 Roddick's service games to break his serve goes to say how well Roddick was serving in the match. Not that Federer was serving badly. 50 aces apparently was just one short of Karlovic's record. It was in Roddick's 40th service game that Federer was finally able to break his serve and with that he won his record breaking 15th Slam. Pretty heartbreaking for the American.
Pregnant Mrs Federer was pretty relieved at the end of the match. And not just because of the result, she might probably have started wondering if she'd have to have her baby delivered right there in the Player's Box. Seriously. Thats how long that last set was.
And the camera guy kept coming up with one celebrity after another. I started wondering if I'd begun seeing things. Ofcourse the tennis giants were there - Sampras, Laver and Bjorg. And there was Sir Alex, Russell Crowe and a guy who looked a lot like Ballack but as I said I'm not sure.
Seeing as how this WTB moment is pretty huge, you'd think that this is the WTBest moment of the week. But no. Not even close.
- This July. More accurately on the 11th of this July at 7:00 PM. If you were to tune into Zee tamil you are sure to have a lot of WTB moments.

To all ye un-enlightened souls, let there be light.
P.S 1: To all Nadal fans, yap all you want about how Federer cries too much(thankfully not this time) but ironical seeing as initially they complained that he emotes too little, how his record against Nadal is bad, how he hasn't earned his French victory, how gold plated dresses are a little too much(Er... I agree on this count) etc etc...
The man has 15 slams before his first born sees the world. Beat that.
P.S 2: To all neutrals, I don't not like Nadal. I just hate his fans. ;)
