The Romance of Sport
Here is two lovely things about sport... the first being Federer making the final of the French Open and having the opportunity to equal Pete Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam titles, the second being that there is another man on the court - another man who will plays a role in the story.

In their match against England in the Hit and Hope World Cup, the Dutch needed two runs off the last ball, and they got the winning run off an overthrow. Here's the reason why its hit, hope (and giggle), New Zealand's match with Scotland has been reduced from a 20 over game to a 7 Over match.
