LISICKI – WIMBLEDON RUNNER-UP!


I don’t know why- but most of my blog readers have had a glee in their faces while talking to me as if I had predicted that LISICKI would will the Wimbledon!

I presume that I had written my blog in such a way that led them to believe that I had predicted so. I told some of them to go back and read my blog. Some have not yet been told. Some probably read and never came back.

As a defence, I would say that I merely presented the way she was and I believe she “LIVED” up to it. When the crowd could not find any flimsy reason to cheer her up, they breached all decency and started cheering her for her opponent’s unforced errors. I thought the crowd was moved by sentiment, but this morning;s THE HINDU says, “NERVES OF LISICKI……………”. Does it really matter? Did the spectators come to the finals of Wimbledon paying more than Pounds 6,000/- per ticket to watch what one could watch watching a soap opera from the the idiot box for free at home?

Lisicki got us all! We are rooting for her without knowing. We are not hoping that she WOULD TURN OUT TO THE BEST PLAYER AT THAT TIME AND THEN WIN THE WIMBLEDON IN FUTURE, BUT WE ARE ROOTING FOR HER BY IMAGINING THAT SHE SHOULD HOLD THE TROPHY AS A WINNER- FOR ALL WE CARE WE DON’T MIND A WALK-OVER BY HER OPPONENT IN THE FINALS AT WIMBLEDON, IN FUTURE!

She cried while playing- THE FIRST I HAVE SEEN (for performance reasons!) She was angry that her racquet was not meeting the ball where she wanted it to meet. Her first serve had lost its stinging speed? Wherewith shall that be met- merely y thrashing it to a corner for Lisicki to run and she did run.

When everything failed, Lisicki was contrite in court not having lived up to the expectations of the crowds! A string of crocodile tears and a sudden wipe to it to show macho men like me that she can’t cry on court- a stiffening! I loved it- what feminine grace with guile! I shockingly enjoyed.

I love this girl and whenever it would be a finals with her playing for the title in future, Deo Volente, I shall be there!

So who won the Men’s title today? After becoming a victim of  feminine guile & grace, I have petered out on the men’s scene!!

Sabine Lisicki in Wimbledon Finals!


What a joy it was to see Lisicki win 9-7 in the third set!

Firstly, the outstanding gender issue! When in men’s tennis it is best of five sets , why only in women’s tennis it is best of three sets! EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK had been the bedrock of the feminists for getting parity in pay with men. Now it seems it is EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN AND MEN WHO DRAW EQUAL CROWD!

Equating pay with “work” is so LABOURISH. It has been taken to the next level of aesthetics. When i watch men’s tennis, i tend to get aggressive and want my horse to ‘squash that yellow ball into the face of the opponent rushing to the net!”, but when women play, I become an aesthete- I have so much to watch! It could happen any second of the entire match! It may be a wardrobe malfunction (just as in a catwalk), a fall and a sudden slide or even a comment like the one which was made by STEFFI GRAF to a proposer who un-romantically asked “STEFFI WILL YOU MARRY ME?” and Steffi’s utterly feminine response of, “HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE?”. These are the moments which make my day, so far as women’s tennis is concerned.

BUT IT ALL STOPPED- AFTER SEEING LISICKI! I can withstand almost anything except ELEGANCE.

You may ask, what the hell do I mean by ELEGANCE?

My answer is simple: I WILL NOTIFY YOU WHEN I SEE IT, BUT DON’T ASK  FOR THE INGREDIENTS – IT IS A QUESTION OF TASTE! and all TASTE is a question of DISCERNMENT, which means WHAT SHOULD NOT BE THERE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT IS THERE. Whatever is there, shown and seen by us could be ACQUIRED, but there are certain things which are ABSENT when CERTAIN THINGS ARE SHOWN OR SEEN- that COMBO IS TASTE. One has to have discernment to see that whole picture. And I should say she has POWER, PRECISION & PANACHE. PANACHE being in the company of power and precision is strange and it is that combo, which for me, makes it ELEGANT.

In PANACHE one has to have Flamboyance and Bravado . FLAMBOYANCE is an ability to self announce one’s own ARRIVAL, BRAVADO is self announcement of one’s own FUTURE STATUS that  I WILL BE THE BEST!

Lisicki has both in good measure.

This PANACHE in the company of POWER & PRECISION is strange, because, I believe, that POWER and PRECISION teaches everyone that FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN, So, LISICKI’s self announcements add spice and make it elegant.

Did you notice SERENA WILLIAMS’ face at the end of the 2nd set? It showed as if, “ONCE YOU WERE INDIFFERENT TO THIS AFRO-AMERICAN GIRL, LATER YOU HAVE BEEN WELCOMING ME TILL NOW, BUT NOW YOU AVE BEEN LED AWAY BY THE CHARM OF MY OPPONENT- I HAD STARTED SEEING THIS TOO- AND I DON’T CARE ABOUT WHAT THE SPECTATORS THINK!

LISICKI IN SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE CROWD AND CONVEYED; COME ON! YOUR CHEER CAN PULL ME OUT OF THIS RUT.

Everyone in the crowd participates (except for those cussed FEMINISTS who say to themselves LOOK AT THAT B#@$H eliciting SYMPATHY.) They get it wrong, it is not SYMPATHY, but YOUR PARTICIPATION. That is PANACHE- an IMPERIOUS DEMAND as if I were duty bound to cheer her to win!  Either FOLLOW me or CHALLENGE me!

LISICKI takes the spectator’s love for her, to be the starting point of her WIMBLEDON. I love such assumptions- it is so aesthetically satisfying. I go to bed with an aesthetic fulfillment and most probably sleep like an innocent baby, and enter the Kingdom of God!

So, what is it that LISICKI doesn’t have, which makes HER ELEGANT? Well, it is this: in the company of POWER and PRECISION, like the third person in the triune God, DOURNESS sneaks in. It is that LACK OF DOURNESS SUBSTITUTED BY PANACHE which makes LISICKI elegant.
