Wimbledon Comes Out Swinging Games Go On Even As England Mourns 7 7



Wimbledon Comes Out Swinging; Games Go On Even As England Mourns 7/7
One of​ the​ most winning things about spirits irrepressible is​ that they always come out swinging .​
And that resilient spirit was on​ prideful display at​ Wimbledon,​ which respectfully went its traditional way even as​ the​ people of​ London marked the​ dastardly bombing of​ the​ tube with sad but resolute hearts.
As expected,​ Roger Federer banished his Swedish opponent,​ Jonas Bjorkman,​ in​ the​ semifinals.
''I was flawless,​'' Federer said .​
''I had high expectations to​ win this match today .​
And then to​ come through and play at​ the​ level I​ did today,​ that's great.'' He went on​ to​ say,​ ''It's just a​ beautiful feeling .​
You don't get it​ very often .​
When you can dominate an​ opponent,​ it's always sort of​ nice .​
But then especially in​ a​ semifinals of​ a​ Grand Slam,​ it's even better.''
In the​ final on​ Sunday,​ he went on​ to​ trouce the​ Spanish racketeer Rafael Nadal,​ despite the​ mind-troubling reality that Nadal had beat him in​ the​ French Open and in​ four other recent outings.
Now,​ his record of​ four consecutive Wimbledon wins rockets him to​ the​ sunny heaven of​ tennis with Bjorn Borg,​ who won five in​ a​ row,​ and Pete Sampras,​ who went four for four.
But more than anything else,​ the​ continuance of​ the​ matches even in​ the​ solemnity of​ mourning bespeaks the​ power stroke of​ the​ human spirit,​ whether it​ is​ applied to​ the​ most serious intent or​ simply to​ masterful frivolity.
It is​ that same irrepressible strength that will allow it​ in​ time to​ dominate its opponents,​ including the​ recent excrescence of​ purblind evil we​ call terrorists.
