Sania Mirza vs Maria Sharapova
I always love how tennis players exude their elegance when smashing the ball with their racket. They are rulers of the wide lawn court. The squeaks of their shoes make their arena become more alive. With every run they take on the court, we are always expecting to see something spectacular. Will the ball fly over the other edge of the net? Will it fly with a grand, smashing hit?
People who watch tennis plays always wait for the unexpected. I love tennis plays in which the first underdog of the match makes an unbelievable turnover of events. I am also sure that everyone also loves this kind of play. You thought he will be beaten, but in the end he is the one declared victorious.
