So last Super Sunday was not all that enjoyable to me. All the events produced negative results so I must title that Sunday as Flop Sunday 1.
Nadal lost to Djokovic in the Monte Carlo masters tournament. He had won it 8 times in a row and it would have been awesome if he could win it one more time. But it wasn’t to be. Nadal fought in the match like he always does but Djokovic was too good.
Djokovic raced to a 5-0 lead in the first set and looked set to take the set but Nadal fought back to break him and win the next game too. At 5-2 and Djokovic serving, Nadal had a few more break points but could not latch onto them and Djokovic won the first set 6-2. The second set was a close fight with each player breaking each other multiple times. It went to the tie breaker where Djokovic outplayed Nadal and won the tie breaker 7-2, thus winning the match.
Nadal is playing the Barcelona Open this week and is currently in the semis. It would be good if he could win this tournament.
Ferrari had a disastrous Bahrain grand prix. Both Alonso and Massa had very good starting positions on the grid but both of them faced problems in their cars had couldn’t compete in the race. Alonso rear DRS wing got stuck and he had to pit twice to get it fixed. He couldn’t use DRS for the rest of the race. Massa had a damage on the front wing on the first lap for which he had to pit. Later in the race, he suffered a tyre puncture forcing him to pit again.
Alonso finished the race 8th and Massa 13th. It was a fantastic race for Lotus team though with Kimi and Grosjean finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively. So Vettel is now leading at 77 followed by Kimi at 67. Alonso is 4th with 47 points. Ferrari is third in the table with 77 points, 32 behind Red Bull.
The results in the two matches on Sunday seemed to headed in a great direction for Arsenal when things changed for the worse. Spurs were down a goal in the 80th minute but somehow they produced 3 goals out of nowhere to win the game 3-1. The Liverpool Chelsea match was being let by Liverpool when they scored the first goal but Chelsea bounced back scoring two. The only consolation for the night was that Suarez scored another for Liverpool and the game ended in a draw. Suarez also bit Ivanovic and got banned for 10 games. I don’t know what to say about that.
So we play Man U this Sunday. They have already won the premier league this season. We can hope that they are complacent in the next game but knowing Mr. Fergie, they will play to win. Should be a good match.
