sporting action…
I dearly missed the U.S.Open ,the test match between England and South Africa and other sporting actions from around the world because of CAS.Neverthless the print medium provided a good coverage of most of the sporting events happening across the globe.andy roddick has proved himself to be a great fill-up to the void created by Pete Sampras’s retirement from the game.the ATP ranking shows the Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero,the French open champion leading the men’s singles ranking while Kim clijsters who is yet to record a grand slam victory tops the women’s singles ranking.i kind of expected kim to win over her Belgian counterpart Justine henin hardene but as the natural law goes ‘let the best and deserving win’.this leaves henin with two grand slam titles this year.moving over to cricket,it was a wonderful sight to see a rejuvenated England team with a test victory in the final test match to draw the series 2-2.guess vaughan’s captaincy skills is maturing by the minute.meanwhile the test series between Pakistan and Bangladesh concluded with Pak. Taking away the honours.one thing which was common to all the test matches in the series was that Bangladesh always after a commendable performance in the first inning never really put up the same show in the second innings.it’s a young team with lack of experience,guess they need some more time to be real competitors in the international cricketing arena.
