But there was one disturbing moment during the match. There was this fan who had come and put some cap or flag over Federer and then he ran across to Soderling. And the security people were just not able to prevent him from reaching to the players. It is a very scary thing. Yeah, for the crowds it may be a fun thing and for the audience something amusing, but what if he had been a disgruntled Nadal fan? He could have done harm to both Federer and Soderling. Monica Seles, we must remember,had an on-court attack in which a German spectator stabbed her in the back with a 10 inch long knife and she was unable to be consistent in her career after that attack. The attacker was labelled mentally unstable but that act ruined her whole career. Streakers, pitch invasions,etc. should not be laughed off.
Meanwhile, I read My Friend Sancho by Amit Varma of the India Uncut fame who is rated among the top 50 most powerful people in India by Business Week. I loved the book because of its humour. It is a contemporary novel and all of us can easily relate to it. One could finish it in 4 hours. I had a smile on my face all along while reading and at some places it was simply too much fun (Vyjantimala!! those lizard conversations and his superb one liners Okay I didn't :D ). I liked it and would recommend it :)
