Chennai Open 2006

The Chennai Open started today and I witnessed one of the best doubles matches ever played.
Firstly, thanks Archana (Dog) for the tickets. You dad is rocking. Thanks uncle, for the free tickets. :-)
Me and Fao went for the matches and saw Prakash Amritraj beat some guy from Brazil. Then Srichappan partnered with some guy from Czech Republic to beat some guys in a stupid doubles match. Don't know don't care. There was a new doubles rule. Please click here for more information.
Then came "The Tiger" partnering a louzy guy from Czech Republic, Martin Damm. He looked moron of Nth Grade. He was slow on his feet and was really really looking like a Nazi.
But Leander Paes showed yet again, how he inspires himself and comes up with great shots at very tense situations to win the game. He was amazing yesterday. And as Fao says, "He has got the heart of ten lions." Being set down and nearly written off by the opponents in he second set, Leander showed what is class, why he is still rated as the best tennis players in the world, why he is still winning Grand Slams with a 50 year old woman, why he still carry the hope of 1 billion people on his soulders, because he knows HE CAN DO IT!!! Such people really inspire me. I believe this is what makes people like Leander, Dhanraj, Raghavandra Singh Rathore, Anju Bobby George and Sachin, REAL LIFE HEROS and we are just normal human beings. They have the will power and the killer instinct. People who have the belief that they can do things, can only do it. Others are hmmmm, don't know can't say. Leander Paes is GOD!!!
Check out some of the photos.

Centre Court


Kids are so cool. They just want an autograph. Doesn't matter who he is. :-) Really loved it when they just wanted autograph of Charu Sharma. :D No one else but Charu Sharma. HAHAHAHAHA!!

OK good night everyone. Good luck Leander!!!
