The Sky lounge on top of the Magnet shopping mall in Bandra had two distinct sounds, the splitter-splatter of the Mumbai raIn and the shouts of the audience equally divided between Andy Roddick and Roger Federer.
Well! It was a match … a true tennis match.The first tennis match I have ever really watched fully (of course the gung-ho mood of the crowd and the big theatre like screen only added to the overall of the experience)
Federer wins the Wimbledon finals,becomes world no.1 again, becomes a 15 time grand slam winner, an all-time great and re-affirms the myth that he is a parallel Universe (albeit Nadal, his greatest nemesis is somewhere tentatively licking his fingers waiting to get fit and kick Fed’s a**)
However,what more can one ask for! When the decider-set to one of the most spectacular tennis climaxes goes 16-12 … en la fantasma!
ps: Truly worth bracing the rain and going all the way from Wadala to Bandra to watch it on the giant screen 🙂
