Spain will meet Argentina in the Davis Cup Final. The two nations last met in the 2008 final, in Argentina, which Spain won 3-1 although this tie will be played in Spain. In the semi-finals, Spain had a comfortable 4-1 win over France, while Argentina defeated defending champions Serbia 3-2. Novak Djokovic had to retire in the fifth rubber due to injury. Spain are outright favourites but don’t discount Argentina, despite the fact that on three previous occasions, they’ve never managed to beat the Spaniards.

The Final of the Challenge Cup sees the Wigan Warriors take on the Leeds Rhinos. Despite Wigan being the most successful side in the Challenge Cup with 17 wins they haven’t actually tasted cup glory since 2002. Leeds have won it 11 times with the last victory coming in 1999.
Led by Kevin Sinfeld and Jamie Peacock, the Rhinos have a talented side. As do Wigan who boast the likes of Sean O’Loughin, Pat Richards, Ryan Hoffman and Brett Finch.
Wigan are currently top of the Super League ladder and are having a great year. Their path to the final began with a 52-0 thumping of Barrow Raiders. They followed this up with a narrow 26-22 win over the Bradford Bulls. They smashed Warrington in the quarter finals before sneaking past St Helens in the semi’s.
Leeds began with a win over the Crusaders and then took out Harlequins and Hull. In the semi-finals they were really put to the test and required extra time to overcome Castleford. Leeds are in 7th place on the Super League ladder and would love nothing more than to avenge the back to back Challenge Cup final losses they suffered at the hands of Wigan in the early 1990s. They lost the final last year to Warrington and a win here would be the perfect tonic.

Down 2-0 with two Tests to play, how will India respond? They came to England as the number one Test side in the world but haven’t played like it and now run the risk of the English capturing that title.
Injuries haven’t helped their cause and they have lost Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Yuvraj Singh for the remainder of the series.
Virender Sehwag missed the first two tests but should return as will Gautam Gambhir.
Rahul Dravid has been playing a lone hand for India and has 262 runs from the two Tests. VVS Laxman is the next best Indian with 124, but as a wholem the team just haven’t coped well with the conditions or the spicy English bowing; even Sachin Tendulkar is struggling. In Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior, Ian Bell there are three Englishmen whot have over 200 runs whilst Stuart Broad has an impressive 182.
Broad is having a fantastic series and hit a series high of 15 wickets including a hat-trick. Praveen Kumar has bowed well and is the next best with 13.
Simply put, India have been outplayed in every department of the game. They won both tosses but chose to field first both times which backfired. The third Test at Edgbaston will indicate if they are going to be able to mount a serious comeback or whether they have no fight left to give – watch this space and enjoy!

The Davis Cup finals, which began on December 3rd between France and host Serbia, are now wrapping up the excitement with two more matches to end the tournament. The Slavic country marked this international tennis event to be more than a classic sports match between two countries; for Serbia it has become a national symbol of the country’s progression after years of instability.
Apart from the tremendous anticipation and hope that surrounded the atmosphere in Serbia, the fate of the Davis Cup has been struck by Serbia’s inability to withstand the nine-time champion French team. Read More »

The stars of world snooker are showcasing their talents in Glasgow and despite some top players already falling by the wayside, the field remains extremely strong and highly competitive amongst those still fighting it out for the £100,000 first prize. This year, and for the first time in a world snooker ranking event, amateurs were welcome to enter and had to overcome two qualification rounds to assure their place in the main draw.
The format of the World Open has been adjusted to make matches best of 5 frames until the final which will be best of 9, and the quick play will no doubt benefit both Ronnie ‘The Rocket’ O’Sullivan and Neil ‘The Thunder from Down Under’ Robertson. O’Sullivan faces Mark King in his opening game and only a brave man would bet against him featuring in the draw for the next round. Read More »
