The thing about chaos, is that while it disturbs us, it too, forces our hearts to roar in a way we secretly find magnificent.

One of the greatest revolutionaries to have ever graced this earth. Thank you for showing us the way to equality and freedom, Madiba.
“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

I have no words but, man, he is the MAN!
Clay season has just begun, meaning it’s vamos time again for the RAFAns. 🙂 Bidding for an unprecedented 9th straight title (42-match, 10-year unbeaten run) at Monaco, it might not come as a surprise for Rafa to win again in Monaco (I hope I don’t jinx it :D). Well, everybody in the tennis world knows that he’s the ‘King of Clay’ and that he’s back to compete (for the love of the game and for his adorb fans :D) even with the state of his troublesome knees. That’s what matters. That’s how persistent the King is. 🙂
Today he will play Marinko Matosevic (Australian, ranked 54 in singles) at around 8:30 A.M. local time (6:30 P.M. in the Philippines) in the second round. Every match counts. We can only hope for the best for Rafa and an injury-free match.
And above all, may the 9th force be with him ’til the championship game. 🙂
I’ve been Twitterized with the great Shaq! This infographics creator is pretty cool you should try it out. 😀
Rafael Nadal of Spain drops to the ground and shouts after defeating Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina in three sets on March 17, 2013 in Indian Wells, California, in the men’s tennis final at the BNP Paribas Open.
Nadal is the most humble of champions in the tennis world. He stays on the ground despite the grand slam and ATP Masters titles tattooed in his name. There’s a lot of sportsmanship in Nadal’s games and I think he is a master at it. 🙂
