This is a follow up to our last week’s sports article where we had mentioned that many giants had fallen in the first week of Wimbledon.
We had also mentioned that the players who show real grit and hunger for victory will survive and scale the summit.
So here we are in the last two days of SW19 and women’s tennis has two new finalists, Bartoli and Lisicki. Both these ladies have shown great strength of character to overcome all the reputations and legends en-route to the final showdown.
Men’s final has the first two seeded players but the other six players in this year’s quarters were unexpected.
Murray has not only fought the pain barrier and the opponents, but also the pressure of expectations on him by British public. Novak Djokovic has had somewhat easy route until he met Berdych in quarters and one time US open champion Del Potro. He defeated them in thrilling encounters to reach the finals and showed that why he is the numero uno player currently.
I would also like to make a mention about Bryan brothers who have reached yet another grand slam final.
These players have shown that apart from talent the hunger to excel drives you ahead and helps you conquer your dreams.
So yes the London dreams of the above mentioned players have come true!!
