Yes, I'm happy, overjoyed that Rafa won the French Open. But i'd like to shift the focus here to Federer.
World No.1 for almost three years now, Federer has won every Grand Slam safe for the French Open. He's always been stopped short by the King of Clay, Nadal.
Federer has been hailed to be one of the most successful and ingenious tennis players to date - and all he wants right now is to win the French Open. He has never lifted that trophy, he has never planted his lips on the cup. Yesterday Roger walked away with his runner's up plate tucked under his arm like a newspaper.
"You can't win them all... But, honestly, what more can (he)we ask for?"
- Roger Federer's dad, on his son losing the French Open the third time in a row to Rafael Nadal, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.-
I guess this shows that even the mightiest giant has an achilles heel, even the biggest champ may fall. No one's invincible, and we should never think that we are the best at what we do, as there is always someone out there better.
Fundamentally though, I think this also shows that no matter how much success a man attains, he may never truly be happy. If there is that one thing he desires, it may be the thing that he may never achieve and it is because of THAT he desires it more.
Just my two cents.
Okay enough rambling this Sunday morning. ;)
Just to let y'all know, I watched the match last night at a friend's place, he's half Swiss so he was cheering for Federer, and needless to say we were trash-talking throughout the match. lol! It was good fun, cant wait for next year.
And I do apologise, yes I was busy with the LTD auditions yesterday. It was lots of fun (as per usual) and I will be looking forward to the first episode, on the 9th of August (immediately after National Day parade).
Today I'll be getting interviewed by Female Magazine, for their August Issue cover. yep, I'll be on the issue of Female Mag in August! *big smile* .. just last year I was *nominated* as one of Female Mag's Top 50 Most Gorgeous, .. and this year I'm on the cover. Its almost surreal, how quickly everything's going for me. I'm so thankful, and so blessed to be where I am right now.
Take care, God Bless and have a wonderful week ahead. :)
