In cricket, it is the world cup winning captain, in football it is the Ballon D ‘Or winner and in tennis it is usually considered to be the Wimbledon champion. While Novak Djokovic is now undoubtedly the face of men’s tennis, the face of women’s tennis is by unspoken law, the legendary Serena Williams, the glamarous Maria Sharapova or the temperamental Viktoria Azarenka while a shy Czech lurks about somewhere in the shadow despite being the Wimbledon champion. Someone ought to tell Petra Kvitova that she has is the defending Wimbledon champion and can display some level of arrogance that Williams or Sharapova consider as their birthright. read more

Pep Guardiola vs Jose Mourinho: Football Managers of the next generation

For the last few years, only two managers are hogging all the glory: Pep and Jose. When used together doesn’t it sound like a name of a comedy duo similar to Laurie & Fry. There is nothing in the club domain of football that they haven’t won. The sheer dominance showed by these two is unmatchable in every sense. Champions League-check. Club World Cup-check. League title-check. League cup-check. God knows what will happen if they venture in field of international. read more

Is Arsene’s time at Arsenal up?

This seemingly appalling question arises only because of the insurgence of the social media into every nook and cranny of the modern game. After almost 19 years into his job, Arsene has faced a barrage of criticism, vile abuse and anger. In recent years, fans and rivals have called for him to be sacked alleging a lack of success and trophies in the last 9 years and some humiliating results to bitter rivals and lower ranked opposition like the West Broms and the Derby Countys of England. But for a man of his stature and record is this justified? Or is Arsene’s time really up at Arsenal? read more

Sergey Karjakin : Chess in his veins

Most eleven year olds would have been taking their elementary steps into the world of algebra to build their calculative powers needed to solve combinatorial situations. But then again, Sergey Karjakin was not just another eleven year old. The Ukrainian-born prodigy was busy getting the title of International Master aged just eleven as he dished out moves with calculations that amazed even the best grandmasters. One such grandmaster, Russian Ruslan Ponamariov chose a twelve year old Karjakin in his team of seconds for the world championship. The shy kid strutting about the hotel in the world championship attracted quite a lot of attention…the chess world was being warned of a super grandmaster in the making. His list of achievements turned even more incredible as the prodigy completed his GM norms aged twelve years and seven months to become the youngest ever Grandmaster in history. He does indeed match the prodigious levels of Lionel Messi (who he resembles in looks) and his is a tale that needs quite some telling. read more
