In one of the greatest upsets in the tournament’s history, the Spanish king of clay slumped to a first ever defeat here having racked up 31 wins in 31 outings since his 2005 debut.Soderling’s stunning victory came just a month after he’d won only one game in a 6-1, 6-0 rout at the Rome Masters, his third defeat in three matches against the world No 1.
But he was man transformed on Sunday with the 24-year-old unleashing a formidable service game and a relentless, pinpoint accurate forehand which forced Nadal to constantly scramble for a foothold in the match. Read more... (430 words, 1 image, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
There are many days every year that are observed either to commemorate people or some important historical event. I am not talking about those silly mother-in-laws day here. While businessmen were wondering on how to best market each day of the year to the gullible public, WHO quietly proposed that May 31 of each year be observed as World No Tobacco Day, in 1987 .Every year they come up with a new theme and this year’s theme is “Tobacco Health Warnings”. Tobacco health warnings appear on packs of cigarettes and are among the strongest defences against the global epidemic of tobacco.

Is Bigger really Better???? Definitely not if you take the Ministers list of the Union Government of India. It has been 2 weeks since the people of India gave a decisive mandate in favour of Congress and UPA and the Government has been very indecisive in finalizing the portfolios. 19 Cabinet Ministers and Manmohan Singh were sworn in on Friday. The second and the final set of ministers were supposed to be sworn in on Tuesday (25th May) but it had to put off due to last-minute wrangling over berths and ministries.. Read more...

Cricket is a team game and today we saw just that. On one side you had Jumbo who led from the front for his team, the Royal Challengers but on the other side you had Gilchrist who scored a duck but in the end he had the final laugh as Deccan Chargers were crowned the IPL champions 2009. It was a spirited performance put in by the Royal Challengers who were definitely in the drivers seat half way into the match but the Chargers had saved the best for the last and came up with an all round show to snatch the title from the Challengers. This is IPL (Indian Premeire Leauge) and it was very apt that the Men in Blue won it. Last time too it was the Men in Blue (Rajasthan Royals) and this time it is Deccan Chargers. So what are we looking at next year..Maybe Mumbai Indians: D Read more... (1046 words, 7 images, estimated 4:11 mins reading time)

What a tournament this has turned out to be. 2 teams which had finished at the bottom last year will now be fighting it out in the finals this year for the coveted trophy. Before the tournament started Delhi followed by Superkings were tipped to be the favourites but both have been outclassed in the semis. In today’s Semifinal Bangalore proved to be too good for the Superkings who were lacklusture in their performance. The Royal Challengers who were branded as a test team last year have won 6 in a row and look good to with the all important 7th one too. Read more...

Yes we finally know who will play whom in the semi finals and it took the last league match to decide that..What better can you ask for IPL this year. The Royal Challengers are on a roll winning their 4th consecutive match and will definitely give some headache for Dhoni when they meet in the semi finals on Saturday. The Chargers on the other hand have lost 3 in a row and will definitely will be hoping that there is a change of fortune tomorrow for the all important semifinal match against the Table leaders Delhi..
