Talk about exciting ballgames in the Philippines’ Collegiate ranks both in the UAAP and the NCAA.

Personally, i tend to watch the UAAP more than the NCAA since i really find the games here more exciting (kudos to NCAA fans there, but i am an NCAA fan as well one way or another). And of course because of the fact that the La Salle Green Archers play in the UAAP.

The Final Four of both tournaments are almost on the way. Continue reading ‘College hoops heating up’

2008 US Open

•September 9, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Roger Federer came out of a slump.. FINALLY.

Federer defended and won this year’s USD 1.5 million worth 2008 US Open. He beat Andy Murray in straight sets, 6-2, 7-5, 6-2. IN the process he came closer to overcoming the record of Pete Sampras in the all time slam title list. He is now one slam title away of tying the record.

He has now won five straight US Open titles (wow..) and won 34 straight matches at Flushing Meadows.

It was reminiscent of the OLD Federer, the one who dominated and held the world number one in the span of 3 years (2004-2007). This was most evident in his semifinal match with World number 3 Novak Djokovic.

Will this be the start of another dominating streak? Rafael Nadal should watch out, his grip in the number one ranking might not last that long.

In the women’s side, Serena Williams defeated J. Jankovic and secured the World Number one ranking.
