Someone said in twitter that Sunday was like heaven for sports fan. First, there was the NBA games between the Heat and the Celtics. Second was the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley. And later on that day was the Roland Garros Men's final between Djokovic and Nadal.
I would almost agree except that I am not a fan of Heat nor Celtics. So I was just halfway thru sports heaven. LOL!
The two games that I watched (boxing and tennis) gave disappointing results, at least in my case.
The judges declared Bradley as the winner of the boxing fight to the astonishment of the crowd and the people watching at home.
It was a clear Manny win! I may not know a lot about boxing but isn't the winner the one who lands more punches and is still standing strong after the fight?
Manny took the result in stride. He said he thought he won the fight but said he respects the decision of the judges.
Grace even in defeat says something about the character of the person. That's one thing I like about Manny.
To Manny Pacquiao, you may have lost your belt but I am sure you're still the winner in most Filipino's heart and mind. Mabuhay ka! Keep on inspiring us!
The Roland Garros Men's final which was stopped and postponed the following day due to rain did not bear great results either. Of course, you'd feel differently if you were a Nadal fan.
To a Djokovic fan, it was a sad day. I wanted him to win because I wanted him to complete the 4 grand slams this year. Unfortunately, someone stood in his way. But that's tennis.
You may have lost this RG title, Nole, but I am sure you'll come back stronger next year.
I plan to watch either Roland Garros or Wimbledon next year, so Nole, you better be in the finals! And you better win it. LOL!
