Sport can hardly be accused of being boring lately. Yesterday had three different stories which all will have caught the back pages this morning.
Firstly must be the knockout of Germany from Euro 2012. The Italian team who were seen very much to be the underdog in this match managed to knock the Germans out with a score of 2 – 1. Both Italian goals came from the controversial player Balotelli which sealed their move into the final to play Spain, at team that they have not lost to since the 1020s.
The second surprise was that Rafa Nadal, was knocked out of Wimbledon by the ranked outside Lukas Rosal who is ranked 100 in the world. Nadal never looked comfortable in the match and was very unhappy when the roof was closed for fading light. This is however good news for Andy Murray who looses Nadal from his group.
However Murray himslef was accused of cheating, well not actually Murray but match officials, by Ivo Karlovic who he beat yesterday.
Karlovic, a 6ft 10in Croatian claimed he was foot faulted more times in this match than he had in his whole life.
“After this match the credibility of this tournament went down for me,” said Karlovic. “I feel cheated. On a Grand Slam Centre Court…I don’t know what to say.”
So who knows what this weekend will bring, anyone willing to bet on the Euro 2012 result, I´m not.
