Federer - Best tennis player of all time

Roger FedererRoger Federer broke Pete Sampras' record when he won his 15th Grand Slam title by beating american Andy Roddick 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14. This is a phenominal achievement considering Federer is only 27 years old. He could therefore quite possibly extend this record even further in the future. His biggest rival is the spaniard, Rafael Nadal, who pulled out of this year's Wimbledon tournament.

It was the longest men's Grand Slam final in history with 77 games played. It was also the longest fifth set in a men's Grand Slam final in history (30 games). Federer server a career high of 50 aces in the match.

Although Federer was my favourite to win it, you have to feel sorry for Roddick; he has never won at Wimbledon but has reached the final three times, losing to Federer every time.

Federer was born in Switzerland and speaks German, French and English fluently. His father is Swiss and his mother is... South African! He's married to Mirka, a former tennis player from Slovakia who was eight months pregnant at courtside, while watching him play in the final. Luckily her water didn't break!

My new Nikon D90

I recently took the plunge and bought the Nikon D90 after a lengthy research. It is a very good camera with lots of features, including a 720p video mode. its an mid level dslr

Had this camera for a month I really enjoy its range of capabilities and I am impressed with the speed, features and image quality I find the live view very helpful for tripod work,the whole game is between

1)Shutter speed

2) Aperture



I got the Nikkor 16-85/3.5 lens to go with it, and I am more than happy with it.


I started up a new category called Photography here where I will post some pictures later on when I have time to go out and take some.

My new Imac

I got my new iMac on Monday (6th July 2009). Firstly, I'd like to thank the help from SillyDog701 members on making the decision. Initially, I decided to get the 20 inchs mac with upgraded speed, HDD and RAM, but few days later, I changed my mind, and decided to go for the bigger model Instead .

So this sexy imac is added to my gadget list .

The spec of this iMac:
20-inch iMac with 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors, 4GB of RAM.

For on line messenger, I tried iChat but not like it. It does not support adding people for other messenger users(may be I don't know). I tried PSI but with no luck to find a server. Finally, I find out Adium. It is a very impressive one. I can add my .Net messenger, Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger there. That is my first experience. I may have to further to find out how it works. By the way, QQ is available for Adium as well.

So far, I am very happy with this new computer. It is amazing computer. I like its interface, easy use and security. More experience will be added later on!

My new Imac Rocks but my Old Wallet sucks !
