Tennis: French Open Hero Nadal Knocked out of Wimbledon
-Col. DR. ABDUL RUFF
A rising tennis star Tamira Paszek of Austria keeps surging ahead in rounds of Wimbledon.
On 27th June, Lukas Rosol (CZE) defeated World number 2 Rafael Nadal (ESP) in the round 2 itself and the score was 6-7(9) 6-4 6-4 2-6 6-4. Rafael Nadal does not look like the world’s number 2 at all. Very recently Rafael Nadal won the French Open and created a sort of records defeating world number one Djokovic. He is now an ordinary tennis player and won the French open thanks o to the mercy shown by Djokovic in order to enable him to set a new record.
Considered as an underdog in the competition, Czech player Lukas Rosol garnered overnight fame after defeating 11- time grand slam winner and tennis superstar Rafael Nadal. The 26-year-old Rank 100 tennis player was raised in Brno, Czech Republic and was trained by former player Slava Dosedel, who was once ranked 26th in the world and reached the quarter-finals of the US Open in 1999.
Rosol has never won a match in the main draw at either the Australian Open or the US Open. The match againt ill-fated Nadal instantly listed Nadal to Wimbledon's greatest upsets. The Tennis Champ lost to World's Rank 100. This is the first shameful defeat for Nadal. For Rosol, this is like a dream come true to be able to defeat one of Tennis protégé, especially on his first Wimbledon. This is the sixth year in succession the Czech has played in the tournament but it is his only fourth major league. All of his previous five appearances all resulted in losses in the first round of qualifying.
Rafael Nadal maybe a high ranking tennis players officially, but when he is defeated by an almost unseeded player - and that too in the very first round - that speaks volumes about his real caliber as well as the inherent flaws and ongoing malpractices in tennis. .
Sports frauds are not uncommon in tennis as well. It seems those who agree to ether withdraw or get defeated by weaker players get from the “beneficiary” huge sums, maybe many times of the assured money if they win the tournament. There could be package deals struck through the mafias. Interested countries pay plenty of money to get what they want, if forthcoming for a price.
Why should Djokovic let Nadal win and why do they help each other, like in cricketism exercises, to set bogus records?
There should be a strong investigative agency to track such malpractices in Tennis and punish the frauds by competent courts.
