ATP Tour †Rafa Nadal: One step above the rest by Andrew Hill

This has been a wonderful year so far for Nadal, as he has managed to not only become the number one in the ATP World Tour, but also win the first US Open title in his career.

Rafael Nadal has become the seventh player to win all four of the biggest and most prestigious tournaments in the world of tennis: Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. His name is now written next to Fred Perry, Don Budge, Ron Laver, Roy Emerson, Andre Agassi, and Roger Federer, a privilege that very few can accomplish. With just 24 years, the Spanish player is in a position where the sky is the limit, and his dominance in the court doesn’t seem to find resistance.

His victory in Flushing Meadows did not only represent his 9th Grand Slam title, but also the completion of a record that until then, only Andre Agassi had been able do: win a gold medal at the Olympic Games, a Davis Cup, and of course, a career Grand Slam. Since he didn’t have the chance to be the first one to ever do so, he decided to be the youngest one -24 years and 101 days where good enough to accomplish the record that took Agassi 29 years and 38 days.

And if that wasn’t enough, with his title in New York he tied another record: winning Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and the US Open consecutively. Rod Laver was the last player to do so back in 1969. And even though he wasn’t able to win the Australian Open at the beginning of the year, Nadal will have a another chance to do so next year, which would add up to four consecutive Grand Slam titles, a record that Rod Laver was able to achieve twice, first as an amateur in 1962, and as a professional in 1969.

Despite all the success, Nadal admits that: â€I never imagined in my life accomplishing all that I haveâ€, and feels â€privilegedâ€. He also said that being better than Roger Federer is not a goal that he has set up yet â€in reference to the Swiss’ 16 Grand Slam tittles- and that he prefers to go step by step. This mentality â€in combination with this great game- has brought him to where he stands right now, and changing a way of thinking that has worked out so well just wouldn’t make sense.

His absence in Cincinnati had fans wondering if he was in condition to face the only Grand Slam tournament that he was missing. The organization didn’t have doubts, as he was seeded number one. On previous editions Nadal had complaint about not being on top of his game, which fortunately for him he was this year, and gave him the confidence to play what he considers to have been â€the best game in my life at the US Open, and in the day that I needed it the mostâ€, he said in reference to the final against Djokovic.

In this tournament Nadal also unveiled his new weapon to continue pulverizing records: his service, which had a decisive role in this title. Now his next goal is the Masters Cup, so London, you better watch out.

World Cup Articles Tournament

2010 World Cup by Kwame Johnson

The World Cup 2010 will be held in South Africa this time around. It will be played at ten stadiums located in nine different regions of the country for a full month from June 11 to July 11. On the part of South Africa there is a massive effort to make the event a grand success. The country is doing its best to rally the whole continent behind the effort. The International Marketing Company of South (IMC) is spearheading the campaign. Paul Bannister, the Chief Executive of IMC is brimming with confidence that their efforts will bear fruits. A series of television advertisements have already started to stir up the interest of not only the South Africans alone, but also that of Africa as a whole. The Vuvuzela trumpet of South Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro of Kenya and the tribals of Giza, where the historic Egyptian Pyramids rest are among the features employed for these advertisements. They stress the point that the show belongs to Africa as a whole, not South Africa’s alone.

Even though the first international football match was played in 1872 between England and Scotland, the first FIFA tournament was organized by the then FIFA president, Jules Rimet in 1930 in Uruguay. Only 13 teams participated. The low number was due to the reluctance of many European teams to travel such a long distance. The FIFA was formed only in 1904 and by that time football was included in Olympics. But Olympic football was always for the amateur players and the FIFA encouraged professional teams. The second World Cup tournament was held in 1934 in Italy with 16 teams participating and that format continued until 1982. In 1982 the number was doubled to 32 and that remains until today.

The present day 32 national teams are selected from over 200 teams all over the world. The selection process takes two years to complete before the final FIFA tournament. One interesting story behind the tournament is that South Americans always protested in the beginning the holding of the tournament outside their territory. Some of them have even boycotted the tournaments held in Europe.

South Africa goes into every detail to make the event flawless. One major factor they take very seriously is the hospitality side. All arrangements are in full swing already. The exclusive right is given to Match Hospitality. Their packages include ticket and on-site hospitality on match-days. They arrange preferential parking, entertainment during the match and even a gift to the guest. The facility called the Big Five Series enables you to watch all the matches in the five big stadiums where all the important matches are played. This facility is offered only in private suites. The Big Five Series does not include accommodation and travel.
