Wimbledon is always good for a surprise; but some surprises really surprise. Steve Darcis from Belgium put Rafael Nadal out of the tournament in the first round. He managed this after his start into the grass season by losing to Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round at s'Hertogenbosch in Holland a week ago. It put an abrupt end to Rafael Nadal's dream comeback, but is a dream comeback for Steve Darcis.
+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.
It's that time of the year again. Not as good as Wimbledon, the ATP Masters Final is still worth watching. And it is well worth watching for tennis, too. This year, +Novak Djokovic, +Rafael Nadal, +Andy Murray, +Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tomas Berdych, and Mardy Fish are having it out in the O2-Arena. With so much talent, tennis should be of the finest.
