Wimbledon Final

Whoa!!! What a match!! I am really proud to have watched the last set of yesterday’s Wimbledon Final. Initially when I came to know that Roger was pitted against Roddick in the final, I thought it would be a piece of cake for the swiss master. But Andy played the best tennis of his life. He not only dragged the match into 5 sets, but also took final set to 14-16.
In fact, Federer was not able break the booming Roddick serve till the last game. In fact, it basically came down to who loses his serve. Federer was coming up with Aces when he needed and Roddick was making those unplayable body serves. To be honest, Roddick has improved a lot in last few months. He even improved his record in French Open last month. He was regarded as a one dimensional player with a great serve. Even though I am a great fan of Federer, it felt a little sad to see Andy lose like that. He wasted 4 set points in second set. He not broken in the whole match till the deciding game. Hopefully, as Roger said, Andy will come back stronger next year just like Roger did this year and win Wimbledon. I mean you reach 3 Wimbledon finals and runner up in all. The only other player to have faced such situation was Goran Ivanisevic(May be Federer himself in case of French open) Ivanisevi once said that -

“I might play in another final there and don't want that stupid (runner's up) plate for a fourth time. I am going to win Wimbledon one day -- even if it is the over 40s doubles ...”
He finally won the Wimbledon in 2001, beating Patrick Rafter in an epic final. He is the only wild card player to have won a Grand Slam. Kudos to his perseverance.
I guess I don’t have to talk much about the all time great Roger Federer. By surpassing Sampras he has reached a new high. He now has 6 Wimbledon, 5 US open, 3 Australian Open and 1 French Open titles. He also emulated Borg and Nadal, by winning French and Wimbledon in same year. Superb achievements!!!!
So who is your favorite? Did you watch the final? How did you feel? Please comment.

Raja Shivchhatrapati Lyrics

इंद्र जिमि जंभ पर… बाडव सुअंभ पर… रावण सदंभ पर… रघुकुलराज है !
पौन बारिबाह पर… संभु रतिनाह पर… ज्यों सहसबाह पर… राम द्विजराज है !
उदरात माउली… रयतेस साउली… गडकोट राउळी… शिवशंकर हा
मुक्तीची मंत्रणा… युक्तीची यंत्रणा… खल दुष्टदुर्जना… प्रलयंकर हा
संतास रक्षितो… शत्रू निखंदतो… भावंडभावना… संस्थापितो
ऐसा युगेयुगे… स्मरणीय सर्वदा… माता-पिता-सखा… शिवभूप तो
दावा दृमदंड पर… चीता मृगझुंड पर… भूषन वितुंड पर… जैसे मृगराज है !
तेज तम‍ अंस पर… कान्ह जिमि कंस पर… त्यों मलिच्छ बंस पर… सेर सिवराज है !
जय भवानी, जय शिवाजी !Thanks to Nik for sending this.In case any of you want to read the whole poem you can visit this link.


Finally gave the last exam which I had targeted in the year 2010. It took me 7 months to give my first NCFM exam. But soon got into study mode for rest of the exams. I guess toughest of them all was "Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management”. The last one – “Derivatives Dealers Module” was also tough because I had lost the momentum in between as I participated in lot of Operations Simulation Games with no touch of Finance during that one and a half month period. Now, I am proud NCMP Level 3!!!


It feels really frustrating sometimes. What is the point of being the so called sincere guy in class, the “nine" pointer guy when your parents are worried about how much time you spend on TV serials and movies in hostel!
