As an avid golfer, I have a knack for keeping up with "not-so-popular" sports. One of the sports that I really enjoy is tennis. As you may or may not know, this last week marked the start of one of the four major championships, The French Open. Tennis and Golf have many similar characteristics that seem to make me attracted to them. First and foremost, both are for the most part individual sports. One competes against himself and one other person in order to win. I guess you could say that i was never any good at teamwork or sharing hence why these sports interest me.
One of the top tennis players that has been in the news recently is Novak Djokovic. At age 24, this man, usually regarded as the 3rd best player in the world (behind Nadal and Federer) has won 43 consecutive tennis matches dating back to last year. This year, Djokovic has won 41 consecutive matches including 1 of 4 majors. This streak is downright amazing! Nadal and Federer, who have both won more major championships than Djokovic, don't even have a streak that lasts this long. If Djokovic can keep this up, he will be in conversation as being one of the top players in the world, even better than Nadal or Federer.
Keep watch this week as Djokovic moves into the quarter finals and looks to win his second major of this year, let alone his career.
