The Chase for Nasri
Samir Nasri has amazingly attracted the top two clubs in the Premier League, Chelsea and Manchester United. As I am a Chelsea supporter, I won't dwell on Man U, but I will talk about Chelsea hopefully getting Samir Nasri. I can imagine Chelsea wiping the floor with a stunning bid (well, not too expensive...) that the Red Devils can't match. Just imagine next season's midfielders. Neymar on the left wing, Nasri and Lampard attacking in midfield with Ramires on the right. That would be so good they might even win the champion league - a wild prediction, but anything can happen in football.
Turning now to tennis, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal battled on Centre Court for the £1.1 million prize that goes with the Wimbledon trophy. Djokovic eventually won by 3 sets to 1. For now Novak Djokovic will be thought of as the indisputable world number one, whatever the statistics say - the best tennis player in the world. Yet in his interview he said that he had always dreamed of winning Wimbledon, not of becoming the world's best player. There's a lesson in there somewhere.
