Spain is quite on a roll!! They won the Euro 2008 and Rafael Nadal(who is from Spain, duh) won the Wimbledon Men's Final!!! They couldn't have asked for a better year!! Seriously, I'm all in awe for Spain, my admiration and love for that flamboyant country has increased! (of course, it has nothing to do with their share of hot guys :P) Anyway coming to the point, Fernando Torres scored the only goal in the Euro final against Germany(whom most of classmates supported, but Spain didn't let me down!!) to make the scoreline read 1-0. Spain played like they deserved the title with their short passes which tired the Germans out. Spain were nothing in size compared to the Germans, who pushed around their opponents(as always) but nevertheless didn't really work, 'cause Spain made it all up thanks to their crafty play! In the Spain emerged winners!! :) [Ha! take that all you German team supporters in my class!!]
On the other hand Spain's Rafael Nadal played like a dream and won the Men's singles title at Wimbledon, much to the horror of Federer's fans. He is the second player after Bjorn Borg to win both the French Open and the Wimbledon in the same year. All this while Nadal was referred to as the "clay court specialist", hopefully this will change! This 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 6-7 (8-10), 9-7 victory surely ranks as one of the most dramatic and compelling finals of all time. Kudos to Rafa!!
