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.

365 Writing Prompts: Fandom

Are you a sports fan?Tell us about fandom. If  you’re not ,tell us why not?

You can consider me a sports fan. My number one sports is tennis, I like watching hockey once in a while if it’s a Canadian team playing an European team such as world hockey.

I loved watching the Boston Bruins ice hockey team. I don’t get to see too many of their games, their playing schedule is not convenient for me. Most of their games start at 8 PM eastern which is 9:30 PM where I live. I can only watch one period and then it’s bedtime for me. If I go to bed after one period, the thought lingers in my mind, I wonder who is winning which keeps me awake. This is why I’d rather find out in the scores in the  morning.

However tennis matches are televised during the day, which gives me a chance to watch them. I am a big fan of tennis and among males my favorite is Roger Federer and female Maria Sharapova from Russia and also Garbine Muguruza from Spain. These players are very interesting to watch and they are also very good players. When there is a match on TV when either of them is playing, I sit in front of TV and watch until it’s over.

I watched some live tennis matches in Montreal, it is a lot of fun watching with the spectators.

Another sport I am fond of is figure skating. I watch mainly on TV, I still enjoy it. I know it would be lot more fun watching it live, but it’s not possible. 🙂
