The New "King of Grass"

Rafael Nadal, World No.1 Tennis Player, won his second Wimbledon Title tonight. This was Nadal’s Eighth Grand Slam title(5 French Open, 1 Australian Open, 2 Wimbledon Titles).  In the finals, he beat the Czech man, Tomas Berdych by 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. I thought that Tomas will be a tough competitor for Rafael Nadal. Tomas attracted me in the way he served to Federer and Djokovic. Nadal was little bit not so strong in serves. Nadal hits only few aces in his matches. This made me think that this final may go upto 5 sets. But, thanks to Nadal’s extra-ordinary forehand shots.

Nadal won the French Open title last month. This is Nadal’s second back-to-back straight win in Wimbledon and French Open(2008 and 2010). I was upset very much and even halted watching Tennis last year when he lost the French Open and pulled out from Wimbledon last year due to his knee injuries.

With this 8 Grand Slams he level with Agassi, Jimmy Connors, Fred Perry and Ken Rosewall. That too, he has done in a young age of 24.

Nadal has won 7 matches in 10 head-to-head matches he played with Tomas. And he has won the last 6 matches with him, all in straight sets. Nadal got the prize money of 1 million pounds. Tomas was awarded 5,00,000 pounds.

Nadal won this match without any pain. Nadal didn’t lost any service games in this match. Tomas doesn’t seem to trouble Nadal too much. Nadal looked on full throttle. Nadal looked weak in the opening matches. He even struggled losing two sets in the second and third round matches. He won in straight sets in the first and fourth round matches. He lost the first set in his quarter-final match with Soderling. But, he was unshaken in this year ‘s tounament after that. He beat Andy Murray in straight sets at semi-final. Nadal has proved that he can give his best in any surfaces.

Where are the doctors for this population? July 3, 2010

Once upon a time, most of the outstanding students are opting for a seat in Medical Colleges. To become a doctor is the greatest ambition of many students once upon-a-time. But, now all have changed. Most of the students are hesitating Biology subject in the high school itself. Most are crazy over Engineering Studies. All because in Engineering, they can finish studies in 4 years and then can take jobs. Some years before, there is a massive need for engineers in India. Everyone went for Computer and related engineering subjects. But, now I think there is more engineers than our needs. All are taking one particular engineering, but others are always left unnoticed.

But, the Government of India is becoming aware of the need of huge quantity of Doctors in future scenario. In a country populated as so much as us, Health Facilities are most important one. Any disease can spread in a huge scale in India because of the crowd over here at cities. There is lack of medical facilities in North-East of India and Hilly region. The Medical Infrastructure in Village is worst. The number of doctors is also less. On the other hand, many doctors are not willing to go for village service. Each and every citizen has the right to avail medical facilities.

Recently, Government of India has started taking serious steps to improve this condition. An estimate was presented to the Board of Governors of the Medical Council of India (MCI), stating the number of new government medical colleges needed at this critical point of time. The estimate says that alleast 100 more government medical colleges are need to satisfy India’s Medical needs.

MCI is also planing to increase the quality of medical education in India. It’s planning to increase the number of seats in colleges, and increase the student-teacher ratio etc., All the documents related to this were put on website. And they are confident of approval in next 10 days. The salaries of the medical college faculty is also going to be hiked soon. Nearly 13 groups are going to be established. All the documents will be finalised near August month.

Medical Service is the noblest one. And the doctors should never hesitate to go to remote areas. I have joined Tirunelveli Medical College, (Tamil Nadu, India), 1st year M.B.B.S. As a future doctor of this country, I promised my people that I will serve for this nation and dedicate my life for that. I will never go abroad, I am only for my people…

Rafael Nadal in action in his Semi-final match against Murray

Rafael Nadal has now reached the finals of the Wimbledon Grand Slam Championships 2010. In the semi-final, he thrashed World No.4 Andy Murray 6-4,7-6,6-4. I thought initially that this match may go upto five sets. But, Nadal played really well today. He broke Andy Murray serve 3 times in the match. Andy broke Nadal’s serve one time in the third set. In a particular stage, Nadal was trailing 3-4 to Andy Murray, but he broke Andy’s serve two straight times to clinch the victory. I think Nadal is all set for another Grand Slam.. All the best for Nadal..

Tomas Berdych

In the final, Nadal will face a person who beat the defending champion Roger Federer in quarter-finals, ya.. it’s Tomas Berdych. Tomas Berdych beat Djokovic in straight sets 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 to enter the final. Tomas is also playing really great and he looks out in good form now. I think Nadal is ready for any challenges.. The final is going to be action packed ride..

Go Rafa… Grass will also be yours..!!

It's in our hands now : We must choose - Country's Pride or Country's Gamble Cricket?

Suresh Kalmadi, Chairman of the Organising Committee of XIX Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010, has written a letter to MS Gill, Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India, to reschedule the India-Australia Cricket Series that coincides with the Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010. Two test matches of that series coincides with Commonwealth Games. One from October 2 – 6  and the other from October 10 -14, 2010. In addition, the Australian Team will play three ODI’ s and three practice matches as part of this series. Indian people never consider any sports other than Cricket. Many of us are mad over cricket. So, if a cricket series is played at the same time as Commonwealth Games, it will reduce the viewship and interest of the people towards CWG. This could be harmfully dangerous to our nation’s grand event.

Suresh Kalmadi had requested Sharad Pawar and BCCI, not to schedule any major cricket events at the time of CWG. But, as usual, cricket stupids had ignored them. So, Suresh Kalmadi has written a letter to MS Gill to intervene in this matter and convince the Gamble Board (Board of Control for Cricket in India) to reschedule the cricket series.

Most Indians are mad about Cricket. But, Cricket is lazy man’s game. If you want to honour the real sporting spirit, then support Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010.

So, “Come out from Gamble and play”
