Some Intro for the MAN. "When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour De France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy. It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will. "

Dear Maria, At the outset, commiserations on your fourth-round loss to Angelique Kerber at Wimbledon a few days ago. As always, you fought brave and hard even when the chips were against you, which is more than what many of us do in our everyday jobs. Also, congratulations on Grigor reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final. Hoping he goes further this weekend. I am sure your experience and support at this level would be invaluable to him at this stage of his career. Now on to the main reason for my writing to you. I am sure you would have been surprised to wake up on Thursday morning and find your name trending worldwide on social media, a full two days after your loss. Well, it seems an innocuous response during your Saturday press conference at the All England Club on your familiarity, or rather lack of, with a certain Mr. Sachin Tendulkar, has created a storm in my country. For starters, let me acquaint you with Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, just in case his name comes up in any future media interactions. S ...
Sachin Tendulkar - First Innings as opener. God’s reply was, “Please give me one chance and if I fail, I will never ever get back to you citing the same”

Cricketnext:A night before Roger Federer won his 17th Grand Slam title, a friend of mine - in a freewheeling conversation about his favourite tennis player
Sachin Tendulkar has decided to extend his period of relaxation and in turn has opted not to play in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. That "personal" decision of his has instantaneously sparked off a debate, with one section saying that he is not bigger than the team and cannot keep skipping series after series. There is another saying that he has achieved enough for the country, to be able to pick and choose. Well, first things first, not just Sachin but any sportsperson in any field of sport, has the right to decide if he/she would like to play a certain tournament or not. One doesn't have to make a herculean achievement in that sport to be able to make that decision, it is one that is very personal and one that is taken by many in a variety of sports. If Rafael Nadal wants to opt out of an ATP event to sustain himself in order to give his best in a Grand Slam event, then he does so without anyone questioning the decision. When Wayne Rooney knows he has an England friendly a few days before a Manc ...
