THAT'S NOT A RACQUET, IT'S A WAND!
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Early this morning I yelled upstairs to the missus, “Get down here, there’s some history happening.” I actually wanted her to make a cuppa, ‘cos she isn’t really into sport and there was no way I was leaving the TV. She didn’t come down.
There was this Canberra kid I’d hardly heard of throwing a racquet around like it was an extension of his arm and he was making the world’s number one look ordinary. But Nadal was far from ordinary, Kyrgios was just that good!
The only teenager in the singles tournament at Wimbledon, 144th in the world, a wild card entry and facing the world’s best player, the winner of 12 Grand Slams and the most determined left-hander for the first time on grass.
Now there’s a 100/1 shot if you’ve ever seen one! But he proceeded to swing his wand like a 100/1-on favourite and in the process took tennis to another level and put fear in the hearts of the top four.
This bloke is a true blue Aussie and from now on the engraver had better get his name right ‘cos it will take better than the Joker, Murray and Federer to prevent him winning Wimbledon.
His mum didn’t think he could win, but I did and I wasn’t going to miss a ball this morning because there was a real chance of seeing history made, and it was.
This kid is the complete package, all he needs now is a decent haircut.
