First they said he would never win on grass. He won Wimbledon not once but twice. Then they said his style of play does not suit hard courts. So he went and won the Australian Open. The only fort left unconquered was Flushing Meadows, New York. This year, hungry, and more importantly, with rested knees and an improved serve, Nadal's assault slayed everyone that came in his way. And finally, after previous failed attempts, he walked away with the US Open trophy, becoming only the seventh male player to win a career grand slam.
Jose Mourinhois on a mission. At the helm of affairs at the Bernabeu, Mourinho is attempting to become the first coach to win the Champions League with three different clubs. Tactical and shrewd, there are few that can match Mourinho's tenacity and for Real Madrid, that might come in handy given archrivals Barcelona's ascent. The start to his campaign has been promising, with a 2-0 win over Ajax in the Champions League.
Arjun Atwal won the biggest booty for an Indian golfer at the Wyndham Championships on the US PGA Tour last month. If you're in the mood to catch him and some of the other best Indian golfers in action this weekend, then tune into the DLF Masters.

Another week of scintillating T20 action awaits.
