Of marketability and champions


It's tragic to think that being a champion sportsman with a killer instinct isn't enough to make someone 'marketable'. I wonder if marketability is inversely proportional to longevity. In an age where wild Sreeesanth-ike aggression has come to be the norm, it is a joy to see champions like Nadal and Federer show us that you can be sporting and still be at the top.

Either way, Nadal's performance at the Wimbledon final ensures that his class is stamped over the game of tennis. Take a bow, Rafa!
