This is the third time they met at Madrid open in the 2nd round. Last time when they met, Dimi got some chance to register an upset against World No.1 but, he spoiled his chances with some poor serves at crucial times. And Dimi didn't want to do that again today. Grigor is improving alot for every match, he almost edged Rafa in Monte-Carlo.

First set, each player holding their serves and exchanged one game each and finally lead to tie breaker, this time Dimi wanted that tie break,when last time they met, Dimi loses first set tie breaker in Indian Wells and lost second set and lost the match. He was keen on his tie break and got that.

Second set, as everyone expected Novak would fight back strongly and Dimtrov also continued playing well. There was ankle twist for Djokovic when he was about to break Dimi's game, and took medical timeout and came back and broke straight away. And Dimi breaks back and lead to another tie break. This time Dimtirov got some crank in thigh. Djoker bagged second set.

Third set, Djoker looked to continues his momentum in the third set too, but Dimi, who broke in the very first game and holds his serve and went to 2-0 lead. Dimi looked to register his first upset against top players. And he done that, after breaking the final game at 5-3 and Djoker serving.

The whole crowd(almost) is supporting 21 year old Bulgarian and he was listening to the crowd. But Djokovic is not happy with the crowd. Dimtrov fell on clay surface many times like a child playing in the clay dirt, but finally outplayed Djokovic, the world No.1.
"For 12 days after Monte Carlo, I haven’t touched the racquet… I didn’t prepare myself so well, But I’m not trying to find any excuses for the loss. I tried to do my best… All the credit also to Dimitrov, because he was the better player on the court. He was striking the ball really well, serving great, changing the pace and he deserved to win."-Djokovic

"Of course this has been what I've been working for, to play matches like that, and why not win them? Today was one of these days that I felt good on court. I felt I had enough hours of practice in the weeks before. I felt that I could actually hang with Novak the whole match. That's the whole purpose of getting ready for big events and eventually for big matches." - Dimitrov

"I thought the tie-break was pretty intense obviously, He stepped up on a few shots. He's Novak. In the end of the day, you can expect anything from him. He played a great tie-break, so I couldn't do much... Of course I tried to stay really positive. I believed in myself. I think that was the big sparkle coming into the third set"-Dimtrov

"It's a great win for me. Good day at the office. I know it's a big thing, of course. But you got to stay on the ground. Hopefully you're going to face these guys for years. You never know how it's going to be next time... You got to be ready and try to work at it every day and see it as just another test to do and something exciting to look forward"-Dimtrov

Here is the final game of the match.

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

Atal Innovation Mission - Top 30 Ideas

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.

Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing. But, the students of  "Jnana Prabodhini Navnagar Vidyala, Nigdi, Pune, Maharashtra" thought something else. They are interested in the wastewater which can be recycled. What an Idea sir ji!
Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

Controlled water management in India

Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.  Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling. The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness. The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or t…
