Ok, my favourite tennis player Roger Federer did not win his 6th consecutive Wimbledon, losing to Rafael Nadal in an epic match which lasted for hours. Unsuprisingly, the critics had a field day gloating over the “downfall” of the world no 1.
But as I always maintained, and I would say this again… Never, never write off a champion. I mean, look, this is the guy who has won 12 grand slam titles, numerous Masters titles, stayed as No 1 for a record of 232 weeks (there are only 52 weeks in a year… you go figure) and you think he is finished just after a few defeats? (remember they said the same thing about Tiger Woods a few years ago when he changed his swing… look where he is STILL at now? Yes, you guessed it… NO 1!!)
I have no doubt that Federer will bounce back soon enough to win more titles and set more records and yes.. I will pray for him, after all, he has been a source of inspiration to me.
