Lack of Premier league Football has not dampened my sporting mojo albeit from a couch potato view.
Begining yesterday with the Wimbeldon Womens Tennis Final which was won beautifully by Venus Williams I had to admit the game was a mismatch since everyone was expecting a Venus vs Henin final but all the same Venus showed some powerful serves which blew her French oponent away. I thoroughly respect the way Venus who was an outsider(I think seeded 23) was able to rise to the occassion and blow away everyone else including favourite and media darling Maria Sharapova.
Saturday was the eagerly awaited British Grand Prix, much was said about the possibility of Lewis Hamilton winning at Silverstone on his inaugural British Grand Prix but that alas was not to be as a few minutes ago he was beaten to third place behind Kimi Raikkonen and World Champion Fernanado Alonzo. It was still an admirable finish for Hamilton having finished all his F1 races on the podium. For me being a Ferarri fan I was extatic at the especially since the disaster at the grid where Ferarri's Felipe Massa had to start at the pit due to some engine failure. Ferarri is now showing its potential to snatch the lead from Mclaren I am not hating on Mclaren or Lewis I admire the chap but it is not enough for me to change loyalty from the most iconic team in Formula 1.
The Mens Wimbeldon final is still on but I am rooting for Roger Federer to Beat Rafael Nadal but since I am tired of following the match on the web on BBC sport I will now retire and wait for the scores later in the evening.
