All I know is that when it comes to SEX, it's a woman's world. They call the shots. And it's got NOTHING to do with LOVE, fellows.

I think the commentators are being too hard on Stan. Nadal is the best player in the world and is no easy beast to roast. But Wawrinka will do it eventually.

Well, we have Djokovic waiting in the ranks with ferocious ambition. Andy is still playing and I don't think King Fed is done with Grand Slam titles yet.
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 10:02am On Jan 26|
Stan the man looks set to win this match. If Nadal is going to win, we may be looking at a 5-setter!
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 11:56am On Jan 24|
And Federer breaks back! Way to go, Roger!! 2-2 in the 3rd.
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 11:40am On Jan 24|
At 2 sets down for Federer, it's looking like a straight sets win for Nadal. Oh dear!
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 10:33am On Jan 24|
Nadal is rock-solid like a colossus. It's up to Federer to outwit him. He needs to keep going to the net irrespective but he should keep a tab on his timing. Sadly his backhand is looking quite suspect for now.
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 9:45am On Jan 24|
Ok, so Rafa got a blister and Roger got aggressive. Though Federer has decided to come to the net a lot and chase balls more, Nadal has been watching and may just have the antidote for Federer's game. Also, Nadal still has the outrageous spin on the ball and all the repertoire. Nevertheless, I'm calling 4 sets in favour of Federer.

It was an unexpected result today at the second womens's semis. However, surprises have become the norm rather than the exception in this year's tournament. Cibulkova beat the odds to destroy Radwanska 6-1, 6-2. The vanquished was able to hold her serve a shabby 2 times as her opponent broke her serve 5 times out of 7.
So why did Cibulkova's power game overcome the deft Radwanska? Well, it appears only one player came to play out there today. Either Agnieszka was yet to recover from the 3 set victory over Azarenka barely 24 hours earlier or her nemesis simply refused to allow her to play her game. Cibulkova's game was so clinical she ran away with almost all the winners and left her opponent to grapple with the errors.
We now have Li Na vs Cibulkova in the women's final. A classic David and Goliath fixture you'd say. What are your predictions?
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 5:21am On Jan 23|
Bouchard played very well but experience, aggressive play, precision and excellent coaching trumped youth at the end. I'm tipping Li for the trophy, however if she meets Radwanska in the final which I suspect, it might end up being a tricky 3-setter.
Talking about beauty, sadly Bouchard doesn't do it for me. On the other hand, the diminutive Cibulkova is so easy on the eye. I mean with the looks, the curves, and the "portability" (she's 5ft3), many a guy would fancy some quality time with her.

"It's really become a game of movement out here" says Roger Federer. Roger that!

Once again, Federer serves for the match!

Murray saves match point to win the 3rd set tie-break. Well done Andy, that's the spirit.
Federer leads 2 sets to 1.
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 11:37am On Jan 22|
Did you see that impossible lob by Federer? It was almost a double bounce. Okay. Federer breaks in the 3rd to serve for the match!

Randwanska vs Azarenka - 6-1, 5-7, 6-0
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The count goes 1, 2, 3 as seeds perish as they give way for the mere mortals to flourish. Despite coming into the match with a Head-to-head record of 15 wins to 3, the second-seeded two-time grand slam champion found herself persistently running into a brick wall.
The Fox. Effortless. Gentle. Quiet. 100% brain and 0% brawn, the opponent was the epitome of mechanical efficiency.
At one point, the commentator screamed "Genius!"
Vika found it impossible to decipher the Oracle that confronted her as Radwanska remained solidly Unbreakable. The quintessential definition of frustration, Vika squealed and swore and took it out on the racquet and the balls. And yet salvation evaded her.
No time was this testament more evident than at 4-0 and deuce in the 3rd set. Give her a lob, she returns it. Smash the overhead, she returns it. Agnieszka was such an on-court gladiator that not only does this point summarise Azarenka's challenges in this match but also qualifies a candidate for the best point of the entire tournament.
The white-wash was so comprehensive that Radwanska served at 5-0 twice in the match, in the first set and the third. The defending champion eluded the bagel in the first to end at 6-1 but had to succumb in the 3rd unwillingly to accept her gift of a single bagel.

Congrats Cibulkova. I always thought the attractive diminutive lady had the potential to be a champion. Right now, my 2 favourites in the women's draw are Cibulkova and Li Na. If I have to choose one, I'll choose Dominika. Simply because she is the underdog. For Federer-Murray, I'll pick Fed cos he has absolutely transformed his game by bringing it to the net fearlessly. Thanks to the Gospel according to Tsonga.
|Sports / Re: TENNIS:- ATP/WTA 2014 OFFICIAL THREAD. by bioye(m): 10:04pm On Jan 21|
I'm calling it for Cibulkova and Azarenka. And I'm predicting that Federer would win the Championship.

Police arrest 8 for torturing Ejigbo women
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested eight men in connection with the torturing of two women in the Ejigbo area of the state.
The suspects were said to have been arrested on Saturday afternoon after authorities at the Ejigbo Market were given an ultimatum by the monarch, Oba Moruf Ojoola of Ejigbo. The video of the two women, stripped Unclad and tortured for allegedly stealing pepper, went viral on the Internet, drawing nationwide condemnation.
One of the women, it was later revealed, died due to the injuries she sustained.
The Lagos State House of Assembly subsequently set up a committee to investigate the matter.
It was learnt that although the images of the assailants did not appear in the amateur video footage, traders were said to have identified and exposed them after the market was shut indefinitely by the monarch on the condition that they produce the suspects.
The efforts were said to have paid off after the market leaders took the culprits to the palace of the king.
An OPC member, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said the identity and pictures of the culprits had been given to the police since last week.
A police source also told our correspondent that the police were screening the suspects to determine their level of culpability.

Why do some Nigerians love to misinform others? That is why I am skeptical of the media at times. The number of applicants that applied is not even up to 1 million so how can someone come here to say N6 billion was generated? Haba!
