Rafael Nadal

WEEK OUT

It's a career slam!
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.

Special job

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.

WEEK IN


Going green
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. And if you're in the national capital then just drive over to Gurgaon for a day of fun on the tees.

T20 continues

Nobody's watching it but there's another Champions League on and it's of the Twenty20 variety. Sachin Tendulkar's Mumbai Indians finally managed their first victory against Guyana thanks to Kieron Pollard's murderous assault while Royal Challengers and Chennai Super Kings are in better shape with MS Dhoni's team being the pick of the Indian entries. Another week of scintillating T20 action awaits.
