Rafa lost to Steve Darcis in first round of Wimbledon

Last year, It was Lukas Rosol who smashed Rafa with his wildest down the line forehand winners. Now it is Steve Darcis who defeated Nadal with his smooth and fine game.

At the beginning of the match I felt that Darcis has week game, he relied on only his quick serve. Weak forehand and backhand. No power in them. But as match progress, he started hitting with power, with confidence. And Nadal played his game quiet normally.

Please don't say he was not 100% fit. He was able to play his natural game from the beginning of the match. But only thing is , he might be nervous in first round because he didn't has any match practice after Roland Garros final.

Credit to Steve Darcis, who hold his nerves in the crucial moments and eventually made another upset for Rafael Nadal at wimbledon.
"Nobody was expecting my win today. OK, Rafa didn't play his best tennis today, but I knew the first match on grass is always difficult...I tried to do what I like to do, come to the net as soon as I can, not play too far from the baseline...I think I did great today...I think I don't know what to say right now I'm really happy." - Steve Darcis

"I don't know! The only thing I can say and I can do is keep working hard and keep giving me chances...I hope to have a few more years to play here and to play at the right level. I was not able to play great this year and last year obviously, but I will try.It's tough - but life continues. This is a sport of victories, not the losers. Nobody remembers the losers...and I don't want to remember the loss." - Rafael Nadal

"In sport these things can happen but it was a surprise." - Murray on Nadal loss

Meanwhile Murray and Federer reached second round.

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…

God - God Men - Hinduism

God - God Men ------ The title looks something odd. But there is a lot to think about it. Let me begin the article by putting some questions that are lingering in my mind for many years. Question: 1 Whether the existence of GOD has been discussed in Hinduism? If discussed, by whom it was done? And whether the discussion is carried forward in a sensible manner? Question :2 Whether the GOD mentioned in the age-old books of Hindus personified? Question :3 Is the essence of Hinduism wrongly propagated? If yes why? And by whom? If not, the reasons thereof for the present scenario. Question: 4 What does the entity God Men? And where does it come from? Question: 5 Is the varnas mentioned in the great books were correctly carried out and interpreted? “Ohh……! hey please stop it.” ------- you may exclaim in boredom and distress. Though these are irrelevant to present way of life, there may be some questions often attack our mind as I have experienced. Situations may be relevant or not, the present generati…

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…
