A legendary Swiss player, who dominated the sport in the early 21st century with his exceptional all-around game.
His total of 20 career men’s singles Grand Slam championships (a feat later matched by Rafael Nadal ) is the most in tennis history.
Federer won his third-round match on Saturday
“After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of Roland-Garros today,” Federer said in a Sunday statement. “After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation.
” it’s important that I listen to my body ” and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery.
I am thrilled to have gotten three matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on the court.”
It is and it has been always mesmerized by the effortless play from the Swiss Master since 2000 . Still have memory of Wimbledon 2001 where he defeated another great champion Pete Sampras and the last Saturday at French Open 2021 third round match.
In the final on Sunday 22 April 2012 , Djokovic will attempt to dethrone seven-time reigning champion Rafael Nadal
Yesterday I was watching both the semifinals and both were fine matches ……
today I will explain how I watch a match in its totality …… and in every tournament there are 2 or 3 matches which really enlighten you with joy watching players perfection and totality and grace ……
normally when ever we watch a match ….. knowingly or unknowingly our mind gets inclined to either of the players so normally on a match day we have fans of both players and some neutral watchers which are rare ….
when ever we are inclined to anybody win on a point ….our mind starts predicting the outcome before it happens and in this prediction we lose the beauty of that moment or point …..
so who enjoy the game most …..if you watch with a neutral vision ….. you will witness finer points and beauty of game …..
a neutral referee witness a game ….. to become neutral referee is to witness love game of God ….. that is life
but to be a good referee ….one has to be a good player first …..so play the role of life with truthfulness and totality and making every shot or every step of life as worship of work and going through win and lose in life games to gain depth of understanding will train us to be a good referee ….
to become good referee is to live in present and eternal happiness ….
watch game of life with neutral vision to unfold the mystery of God …
today I have to update two of my weekly wordpress blogs and two face book pages …..link are here
Tennis = Love game A match between two players, end with a result 6=0,6=o,6=o. the player who lost the match ,…… first slam the racket on the ground and does not…….. shake hand with the winner also warmly. As he is….. packing his stuff , a child ball picker….. returning, the racket left on the ground , ask the player why are you so disappointed,…… do not you know?……… I lost the match ,……player replies.
Child inquires with what score ?…. player replies ,are you not here ? child says my job….. is to pick the balls,……. not the score. player sadly answers,……. 6=LOVE,6=LOVE, 6=LOVE Child says you should have thanked warmly the winner. any good reason for this comment,………… inquires the player ? Child replies calmly,………because winner left love in your account.
Accepts the gift of love with grace and forget the race of losing and winning and live with grace to play as divine’s ace.
Have you seen any body playing like that ? player inquires….. . child replies …. I come here with four mirrors and these mirrors are…. body mirror,… mind mirror,…. soul mirror ,…. spirit mirror. but where they placed in you I do not see them on you ? child smile and explains they are…..like hidden cameras .
Body mirror is placed inside my right hand and it captures the players playing at the level of body hence lists millions, always slam their racket , rude to balls pickers also, no harmony inside so it reflects outside as arrogance on court.
Mind mirror is placed inside my left hand and it captures the players playing at the level of mind hence in thousands , joyful when win the match and vice versa when lose it , humble mostly some time lose their temper but it is o.k you loose and learn.
both the mirror placed are in horizontal dimension of time.
Soul mirror is placed inside my forehead and it captures players playing with harmony of body and mind playing with grace of soul,hence numbers in hundreds…… fair to balls pickers and warm in win and in loss also…… always thanks spectators .
Spirit mirror in center point of me in the naval where horizontal axis of time and vertical dimension of space merge and it captures players playing with oneness of body ,mind, soul and spirit hence rare…. playing as divine’s ace… irrespective of win or loss. playing itself becomes enlightenment and watching them is blissful.their presence on the court attracts everybody to that court and always smile in loss and in tears when win.
Have you found any body in your spirit mirror? inquires the player
Child replies yes one . and that is “Roger Federer ” and before ?child say very few which includes Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg and few more……what was the best moments and best match in your opinion , child replies Roger Federer winning French Open 2009 and match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal , Wimbledon final 2007 as match.
