Rafael Nadal defeated Rogerer Federer 7-5, 3-6, 7-6, 3-6, 6-2
Roger Federer Vs. Rafael Nadal – Statistics
In 2004 March , Roger Federer, who had won two Grand Slams in the previous season at the age of 22 to become the World No. 1 , faced 17 years Rafael Nadal (ranked 36). The whole tennis world watched in shock as Nadal defeated Federer in straight sets. And a rivalry was born.
The Nadal-Federer rivalry has so far been scripted to a large degree by the surfaces on which the two players have met each other. Nadal has repeatedly denied Federer a Career Grand Slam by defeating him at the French Open every year from 2005–2008. But on other surfaces, Federer has been the more dominant player.

Roger Federer Vs. Rafael Nadal- SWOT analysis
|Serve||Federer’s serve is one of his biggest strengths. His serve has been broken just twice and in four of his six matches he has not served a double fault.||Though Nadal has improved his serve tremendously, its not lethal. But its very directed and packed with a lot of spin|
|Groundstrokes||Federer’s forehand is one of the best in the world, though recently he is making a lot of errors.||Nadal is lefty and has a good topspin. His shots are very powerful. Nadal’s backhand is not the best either and he prefers to take shots to his forehand.
|Net Play||Federer’s volleys has few equals. But he doesnot come on to the net very often lately.||For Nadals’s net play is not his natural style. He prefers his perch on the baseline. But he has improved a lot lately and tries to attack his opponent from the nets.|
|Strength/ Stamina||Both Federer and Nadal can play for more than 5 hours and still look fresh and energetic. However, Federer is 27 years now.||At 22 age is on his side. He seems to possess super human stamina.|
|Movement||Federer’s movements are effortless and he seems more like a ballerina on a tennis court. He is also amazingly quick and covers the court easily.||Nadal in big and strong but is amazingly quick and covers the court easily. No one can be sure even that even the best shot with perfect placement is out of Nadal’s reach.|
|Tactics||He has a lot of variety and is technically sound. His game has a lot of grace and each of his shot is well- thought of.||Nadal’s doesnot have as wide a selection of shots as Fedex. He depends more on his strength and topspin. However, his placements, esp on the baseline are awesome. He makes some of the most impossible shots possible.|
|Mental Strength||Federer is hunting for his 14th Grand Slam and wants to prove that he is still the best. This might affect his play. Somehow, esp after the Wimbledon 2008, Nadal has got inside Federer’s head. But Fedex is looking a lot more calm and composed this year.||Nadal has got the better of Federer last season. He is high on confidence and is also looking calm and collected.|
|Injuries||Federe has had comparatively less injuries compared to Nadal.||Nadal has had a lot more injuries in the last 5 years. His knees are strapped constantly, his left foot and ankel strapped, now even his fingers are strapped, he is only 22.|
|History||He has won the Australian Open 3 times already and is hunting for his 14th Grand Slam.||He is aiming for his first Australian Open.|

I desperately want Nadal to win. But I think Federer is going to defeat him in a long match.

Nadal Wins 2009 Australian Open – Mens Singles
Australian Open 2009: Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer – Watch Live Online. It’s a Roger vs Rafa Finals again. It might have been the longest match ever in the history of Australian Open played between the Spaniards Fernando Verdasco and Rafael Nadal, but it has seen the World No 1 Rafa Nadal as winner and only to give us all another treat of a final match that he is going to play the arch rival, Roger Federer.
Verdasco almost gave a threat to Rafa and the 5-set thriller seen Rafa as winner only by a double fault serve. The two Davis cup team mates did not go off beat with heated arguments on court instead gave the audience some great shots and fortunes swinging either sides. On the contrary, it was easy step to finals for Roger when he played American Andy Roddick. He went past in straight sets and that makes him feel at ease.
If Roger wins the Australian Open, he will get chance to equal legend Pete Sampras’ record of winning 14 titles. Not before a decade, Roger got the chance to equal that and that itself speaks the character of what a player he is and to play against Rafael Nadal to see him through is something like scripting his name in golden letters in the history of tennis. But will title-hungry World No 1 Rafa give that chance to Roger?

Currently, the WrestleMania 2009 ticket prices are expected to sell up to $755 for the best seats at the event but as low as $40 for the lowest priced seats. You can find seats for a wide range of prices if you have an interest in a slightly better view. There is no word on what the PPV will cost this time around. In recent years there has been some talk of lowering the price because of disappointing sales, but that has not yet been confirmed. There is some belief among the producers of the show that WrestleMania fans will be willing to pay any price that is asked for the PPV event.
There has been a great deal of speculation on the contenders and the big winners of the evening’s events. In the match for world champion it is up to Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Mr. Kennedy, Evan Bourne, Brian Kendrick, MVP and Ricky Ortiz. Who will get the title of World Champion in this event is anyone’s guess. This is a new generation of wrestling talent and getting their faces out there is a prestigious moment for many of them.
It is rumored that there will be more than eighty thousand fans flocking to the event in Texas. Those who are not quick to grab their tickets for the April event will find they are out of luck as those who have them are unlikely to give them up. There has been no official lineup for the contenders this year, but it is guaranteed to be a great show no matter who is in the ring.
There have been some interesting rumors surrounding a return of the legend Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin going at it in the ring, but these have not been confirmed or denied as of yet. Whoever ends up fighting in the ring, there will be some serious entertainment for fans of WrestleMania, especially those who have been watching for the last twenty five events.
If the past is any indication of the kind of celebrities you could expect to see, this year should be a spectacular event. In the past there have been celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T, Pam Anderson, Jenny McCarthy and that’s just for starters. Musical guests for the event have included Reba McEntire, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and many more. These guests were not just attending the event, but actually performed for the record breaking crowds.
If you have been watching all year long and are eager to see the big winners during the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, you should get out there and get your tickets now before they are all gone. Or gather your pals together for the PPV event in your home and have a party. It is great entertainment for everyone who gets a chance to see this once a year extravaganza.

Google, the most popular search engine by a long mile, has had successes in connecting fields (read Orkut) and its own email service is on a perpetual high (read gmail). The always changing face of the Google keeps doing the same: keep changing.
Google GDrive, a web tool that would stake its claim to take complete control of the PCs, in under construction stage. The analytical engineers are sealing all pores and trying to give it an indispensable outlook. If the tool hits the market and becomes a success, Google may see its already burgeoning bank accounts flushing with inordinate funds.
The GDrive would have intended space for the emails, bookmarks, favorites, hyperlinks and other concrete things, adding three-fold performance to the normal drives C, D or E. Though Microsoft and Bill Gates are repainting strategies to come up with its own unique instrument called Mesh, and get predominance because of the way they boast of their presence in the worlds PCs, it seems the competition might turn them both into a quasi-community market with both selling lie hot cakes.
Google has the penchant of thinking ahead of time, and the inspirational GDrive would surely have elements unheard of. They happen to have a secret recipe for success and even the best are found wanting in cracking Google’s success code.
One fails to gauze though how Google intends to earn through this Google GDrive. But everyone, that trusts Google with network sharing, secretly knows that it has hidden aces up its sleeves.Posted in Webmaster No Comments »
One of the most powerful gut wrenching movies to have come up in recent time, “The Wrestler” gives “Raging Bull” a stiff fight in the taut atmosphere it creates with the audience. Tipped to a strong presence in this year’s Oscar applecart, “The Wrestler” clearly promises much.
True that you cannot replicate Robert De Niro, but Mickey Rourke is no amateur either. The pathos which he brings to his character Randy Robinson in the flick is chilling. It seems to imitate life in a big way.
After a sabbatical of 20 years, when the wrestler reveled in incredulous fame, Randy finds himself distraught in personal life, and reduced to being a mere wrestling performer in gyms. The fire, however, refuses to burn out and has been pining in him all these years for yet another stint in the ring. And then the chance arrives.
“The wrestler” is an ode to the eternal spirit of champions, brought to the zenith by the smart and brilliant actor. His new love (Marisa Tomei) and once-separated daughter (Evan Rachel wood) put in realistic acts to give the movie a classy edge.
The grace with which the director Darren Aronofsky plays with subtle plots is sure to place him high among credible artists of his niche. The return to stardom score, though not new to the business of filmmaking has found very intense touch with “The wrestler”. One wonders how movies made on sports strike the popular chord with such regularity.
The movie is worth every penny spent on it.Posted in English 4 Comments »
Watch Juan Manuel Marquez vs Juan Diaz Live Streaming Online Free. On February 28, 2009, the Ring Magazine World Lightweight Championship will be determined when titleholder Juan Manuel Marquez meets with Juan Diaz at the Houston Toyota Center. The 12 round bout is sponsored by Southwest Airlines and Cerveza Tecate and presented by Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. It will be televised on HBO’s World Championship Boxing.
Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez is one of Mexico’s top fighters. He has a record of 49-4-1 and has boxed professionally since May of 1993. Since then, he has competed in three different weight classes and claimed the world title in both the junior lightweight and featherweight divisions. He made history on September 13, 2008 when, after moving up to 135 pounds, the 35-year-old defeated the powerful Cuban boxer Joel Casamayer to claim the Ring Magazine World Lightweight Championship. He landed a textbook right hand on Casamayer in the 11th round, and even though Casamayer got back up, Marquez sent him back to the mat and won the round.
Juan Diaz, called the Baby Bull, was only nine when Marquez debuted in 1993, but just because he’s ten years younger than Marquez does not mean he’s weaker. In fact, even though he’s only been boxing for eight years, he has sped through the ranks and earned a reputation as a very exciting boxer. He currently has a 34-1 record and has 17 KOs. He has held the World Lightweight Championship three times, during which he defeated Julio Diaz and Acelino Freitas.
As an amateur, Diaz thought he would represent Mexico at the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. However, he later found out he was too young to participate in the games. Rather than spending four more years at the amateur level, Diaz turned pro. At the young age of 16, he made his professional debut. Diaz won his first match and the next four matches after that by KO or TKO. He continued his winning streak until March 8, 2008, when a split decision game Nate Campbell the win and the IBF, WBA, and WBO Lightweight World Champion titles.
Diaz’s last fight was on September 6, 2008, against Australian Michael Katsidis. This bout also took place at the Toyota Center, giving Diaz experience with the arena. Diaz defeated Katsidis to claim the IBO Lightweight title in a No Retreat, No Surrender event. Two of the three judges, including Gale Van Hoy, the ringside judge, game Diaz the win.

Mayorga vs. Angulo Canceled
Ricardo Mayorga has withdrawn from his scheduled bout on February 14 against unbeaten junior middleweight prospect Alfredo Angulo.
After the unexpected withdrawal by former two division champion Ricardo Mayorga (14-0, 11 KOs), promoter Gary Shaw struck a deal for junior middleweight prospect Alfredo Angulo to face Danny Perez (34-5, 17 KOs) (Perez replaces Ricardo Mayorga).

Some people have very romantic dates planned for February 14, 2009 – St. Valentine’s Day -
but the date between Alfredo “Perro” Angulo and Ricardo Mayorga is anything but romantic. The two junior middleweight boxers will box live on HBO, and everyone expects the match to start with a bang and only get more fast-paced as it goes on.
Angulo, a boxer from Mexico, goes by the nickname Perro, which means “dog” in English. He plans on going after Mayorga just like a dog with a bone. His tenacity has proven victorious before; however, he has never taken on a former world champion before, and many wonder if he can stand up to Mayorga. Angulo is known for being a relentless puncher, though, so he may have more of a chance than critics give him credit for.
Angulo has a record of 14 to 0 with 11 KOs, and he’s coming off of a ten-bout KO streak that began back in 2006. Since he began his professional career, he has never suffered a loss. He has also represented Mexico at the 2004 Olympic Games and is ranked in the top ten by the WBC, WBO, and IBF (third, fifth, and eighth, respectively). Angulo is considered by many to be one of the hottest boxing stars in the world at the moment. He has defeated Andrey Tsurkan, Archak TerMeliksetian, and Richard Gutierrez, all top light middleweight boxers. The bout with Tsurkan, Angulo showcases Angulo’s rapid, relentless hitting skills – he averaged over 100 punches during each round.
Mayorga, on the other hand, has a record of 28-7-1 and has had 22 KOs in his career. The boxer from Nicaragua has defeated Fernando Vargas, Andrew Lewis, and Vernon Forrest, and he has held world titles in both the welterweight, super welterweight, and light middleweight divisions. Mayorga has previously retired from boxing. In October of 2004, three days after defeating Felix Trinidad, he announced he was leaving the sport. However, slightly less than a year later in August of 2005, he made his comeback.
The 35 year old boxer’s most recent bout was with Shane Mosley back in September. Mayorga did well in the beginning, but Mosley knocked him down with a right punch with 15 seconds left, leaving Mayorga battered. Mosley then took him down with several fast hits and then a left hand that left Mayorga on the mat again. The referee ended the match with a second left on the clock and declared Mosley the winner. Mayorga has also lost to several other big names in boxing, including Oscar de la Hoya.
The match-up is certain to be an interesting one. While Mayorga has more of a history in boxing and has trained longer, Angulo has a perfect record and has shown himself to be a serious competitor. Mayorga doesn’t hold back – he’s a very all or nothing type of boxer. However, Angulo’s average of a hundred punches in one round means that Mayorga needs to take him very seriously. Which of these two powerful men will come out the winner? Watch the match on Valentine’s Day to find out!Posted in Boxing 3 Comments » « Previous Entries
