Daily Prompt: Grand Slam
In your own life, what would be the equivalent of a walk-off-home-run?( For the baseball-averse, that’s a last minute, back-against-the wall play that guarantees a dramatic victory.)
I love watching some competitive sports such as tennis and figure skating, these are my favorite I can spend a long time watching them.
Past two weeks there was a grand slam tennis championship for men and women held in Wimbledon, England. I have a habit of picking my favorite players and I root for them. Otherwise I don’t enjoy watching the match.
My female favorite player was a twenty-one year old from Spain. I was thrilled when she reached the final. Unfortunately she had to play against Serena Williams in the final. The outcome was Serena won and Garbine Muguruza the Spanish player lost. Which meant my player lost I was disappointed and thought next time she will do better.
The men’s finalists were Roger Federer from Switzerland and Novak Djokovic from Serbia. My favorite was Roger,I was sure he’d win but he made some crucial unforced errors at the wrong time and lost the match in four sets.
This was my experience of watching a grand slam tennis championship.
