Rafael Nadal the World No1 lost to Andy Murray in the World Indoor tournament.Right from the start of the match Nadal was completely out of socks.The match finished in 3 sets in which Andy claimed the first set 6-3.Even though Nadal was injured he came back strongly in the second set 6-4.The third and the final set was a one side in which Andy claimed the set in style with 6-0.Though it was disappointing for me to see Nadal loose the match it was great to see him not to give up despite of being injured.This proves that Nadal has all the class and determination to stay as the World class player.Surely he is a champion!!!!

The name Cheteshwar Pujara will be very new for most of us..But it will not stay as the case for a longer time.He is from Rajkot...He may be young in terms of age but in terms of temperament he is far better than many players.He is known for his consistency.He is one player whose conversion ratio of the scores is very high.He has got 3 'TRIPLE HUNDREDS' within a span of 1 month.
He is a world class player according to my view and he will be in the Indian team very soon.He is already being touted as the 'Wall in Waiting'.Very soon he will be replacing Rahul Dravid who is in the fag end of his career.All the best to Pujara and I hope he will reach great heights playing in national colors.

Mom, I want a bike for my birthday.
Little Bobby was a bit of a troublemaker.
He had gotten into trouble at school and at home.
Bobby's mother asked him if he thought he deserved to get a bike for his birthday.
Little Bobby, of course, thought he did.
Bobby's mother wanted Bobby to reflect on his behavior over the last year. "Go to your room, Bobby, and think about how you have behaved this year. Then write a letter to Krishna and tell him why you deserve a bike for your birthday. "
Little Bobby stomped up the steps to his room and sat down to write Krishna a letter.
I have been a very good boy this year and I would like a bike for my birthday.
I want a red one.
Bobby knew that this wasn't true. He had not been a very good boy this year, so he tore up the letter and started over.
This is your friend Bobby. I have been a good boy this year and I would like a red bike for my birthday. Thank you.
Bobby knew that this wasn't true either. So, he tore up the letter and started again.
I have been an OK boy this year. I still would really like a bike for my birthday.
Bobby knew he could not send this letter to krishna either. So, Bobby wrote a fourth letter.
I know I haven't been a good boy this year. I am very sorry.
I will be a good boy if you just send me a bike for my birthday.
Please! Thank you,
Bobby knew, even if it was true, this letter was not going to get him a bike.
Now, Bobby was very upset. He went downstairs and told his mom that he
wanted to go to temple.
Bobby's mother thought her plan had worked, as Bobby looked very sad.
Just be home in time for dinner, Bobby's mother told him.
Bobby walked down the street to the temple on the corner.
Little Bobby went into the temple and up to the altar.
He looked around to see if anyone was there.
Bobby bent down and picked up a statue of the Radha.
He slipped the statue under his shirt and ran out of the temple, down the street, into the house, and up to his room.
He shut the door to his room and sat down with a piece of paper and a pen.
