People just fancy writing sports persons off. I guess that's the easier thing to do. The difficult thing obviously is done by the sports persons - proving them wrong!
What the Williams sisters did this year was exactly this! The women's tennis circuit is so open-ended that we tend to forget who won what grand slam at the end of the year! But it's easy this year because the sisters have won 2 grand slams! Serena now has 9 grand slams to her name and wants to get into double digits. There really seem to be no rivals to the sisters - Venus beat Serena in Wimbledon, Serena beat Venus here ! Looks like the rivalry is confined to the family!
Roger Federer! Critics were quick to ask " Is he finished"? He is not comfortable on clay, and yet reaches the finals of French Open and critics ask "is he finished?". Year after year, he reaches the finals of at least 3 Grand Slams and yet critics ask "is he finished?". And I guess they got their answer today. No.
13 Grand Slams and still going strong.... Roger that! :D
