Nadal vs. Djokovic… at Roland Garros…

Rafael Nadal winning the Roland Garros semi-finals...

Roland Garros

Is in… full swing…

Brimming with… an excitable audience…

It is also… 27°C of searing heat… à Paris

Djokovic… vs… Nadal

Herculean… giants…

Lethally… ambitious…

Powerful…

Roger Federer at Roland Garros...Ranking… No. 1 and No. 4… internationally…

The game… is…

Fierce…

Exciting…

The only way tennis tournaments… should be played…

Passionately…

Of… course…

I miss… “The fabulous one”…

Roger Federer

Badly…

Madly…

He was out of the game early on… beaten by the French Tsonga

Shock…

Yes… I do so appreciate the two players… the fiery Spaniard Rafael Nadal… “Apache” to me… and the steely Novak Djokovic… (reputed to be the “Rasputine” of tennis)… and I’m thoroughly enjoying the game…

But…

Federer… is one in a million…

He is an amazing player… a phenomenon…

Un hommeà part“…

I miss… his style…

His… elegance…

The… beautiful backhand…

Agility… his grace…

I am… besotted…

Inconsolably…

Yet…

I am well aware of the passage of time… “Feddy” will be 32 in August.  We even share the same zodiac sign…

Watching him play… took my breath away…

He was… he is… poetry in motion…

A “Baryshnikov”… a symphony…

A… work of art…

Nadal and Djokovic at Roland Garros semi-finals 2013...

If only time stood still… so that I could continue watching… “the adored one”… winning Roland Garros as well as Wimbledon… forever…

Federer is described as… one of the greatest players of all time…

Back to the game in the Court Philippe Chatrier at Roland Garros… which was jam-packed to the hilt… where Nadal seemed to be winning… after which Djokovic gained pace…

The final round was nail-bitingly tense… with two excruciatingly exhausted players… having been on court for the four hour 36 minute marathon… under the unrelentingly blazing sun…

It was Nadal… who won in the final fifth set a whopping… 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7, 9-7…

A wonderful… robust game it was…

Thoroughly… exhilarating…

But…

I still… pine for…

Federer

Tennis tournaments simply… are not the same for me… without his presence…

Raffiné“… gracious…

Roger Federer... "Winning never grows old"...

Cool… brilliant…

Roger Federer

Une légende“…

For me… he will…

Forever… be…

My…

“The fabulous one”…

My… Hero…
