Huge Upset, Juan Martin del Potro defeats Federer

News - Sports Articles

Tennis has a new champion. Juan Martín del Potro won his first grand-slam title at the US Open last night when he dethroned Roger Federer 3-6, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2 in one of the biggest upsets in grand-slam final history.
Federer, chasing his sixth straight title at Flushing Meadows and his sixteenth grand-slam title in all, led by two sets to one but was overpowered and eventually outplayed by a performance from Del Potro that suggests there will be more to come.
As Federer floated a backhand over the baseline on his third match point, Del Potro sank to his knees in joy as he became the first Argentinian to win the title since Guillermo Vilas in 1977.

It was a surprise success but a victory hugely deserved for the 20-year-old, who is only the third man in the past five years other than Federer and Rafael Nadal to win a grand-slam title.
Del Potro had hammered Nadal in the semi-finals but looked out of his depth in the early stages as Federer served for a two-sets-to-love lead. But as Federer’s serve fell apart, with 11 double faults in all, the Argentinian shook off the nerves and thundered back into the match.
Federer still led 2-1 in sets and had two chances to break for a 6-5 lead in the fourth but Del Potro was as resilient as he was brave and, after snatching another tie-break 7-4, he broke in the second game of the decider and broke again in the eighth to secure victory
For Federer, it was a remarkable end to an incredible year that began with him unable to stem the tears at the Australian Open when he lost an epic five-set battle to Nadal. His first French Open triumph changed everything and, when he won Wimbledon, he broke the record of wins in grand-slam tournaments set by Pete Sampras. Win No 16 was agonisingly close but Del Potro snatched it away from him with a brilliant performance.
So rattled was the Swiss that at one stage he launched an angry tirade in the direction of Jake Garner, the umpire, after he allowed Del Potro to challenge a call late in the third set despite taking a lot longer than is normally allowed. “No, it’s too late,” an angry Federer said. “I wasn’t even able to challenge after two seconds and he takes ten seconds every time. Do you have any rules in there?”
Garner then gesticulated with his hand, to which Federer said: “Don’t do that with your hand. Don’t tell me to be quiet.” Responding to Garner’s comment that Del Potro was talking to him throughout the period before eventually challenging, Federer said: “I don’t give a s*** what he said. Don’t f***ing tell me the rules.”
He still looked the likelier winner when he took the third set but Del Potro began to go for broke on his groundstrokes and once he had broken in the second game of the fifth set, there only ever looked one winner.

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
