World No.1 Rafael Nadal of Spain claimed his sixth French Open title and tenth Grand Slam title defeating Roger Federer in a thrilling match to equal the record of Bjorn Borg’s six titles. This is the fourth time Nadal has beaten Roger Federer in the final at Roland Gaross, continuing his undisputed reign as the “King of Clay”. He now has a 45-1 all time at the tournament with his only defeat coming to Robin Soderling in 2009.

The four set thriller looked as if it was going in Federer’s favor when he led the first set 5-2 with a set point, but Nadal never looked back and went on to win the set 7-5 saving the set point.

Nadal at the age of 25 is considered as one of the greatest ever tennis players in history. He is one of the few players to win a career slam and the only one to have a “golden slam” meaning an Olympic gold medal as well.

He has won 4 of the last five Grand Slams and will head to Wimbledon to defend his title and another chance to claim a “Rafa Slam”

Tips For Running A Fantasy Football League

I have been running a fantasy football league with my hughes net service for many years. There is a right way to run a league and wrong way to run a league. If you want to know some tips for running a league the right way, pay attention to the following information. It might make the difference between success and embarrassing failure. The first step is to plan on having a 10-player league. Don’t aim for 12. This will just put more stress on you. You can always expand to 12 teams in the future. Also, make sure you ask 15-20 people to play. This will increase the odds of you landing enough players. It will also increase the demand for your league. Do not, under any circumstances, tell other players that you currently have less than 10 players. If they ask, say you have 10. You don’t want to get them nervous. Your next step will be to use hughesnet internet to find a hosting site. This will ensure quality service. After that, plan on a draft date. Find out what days are good for the three most important players in the league. Important = dedicated and reliable. Once you find a date that works for them, book it. If others can’t make it, they’re not in the league. This approach might seem harsh, but it will also increase demand.

A final tip for running your own fantasy football league is to never ask other people’s opinions on how to run the league. That’s like asking to be replaced.
