Roger Federer has just won his 5th Australian Open Tennis Final tonight, defeating long time rival Rafael Nadal in 5 sets: 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3.
In winning tonight Federer has increased his tally of grand slam open era Championships to a total of 18. Quite an achievement given the injuries he has had to come back from during this last 12 months as well as the groin injury that Federer seemed to have picked up at some point recently
Congratulations to Rafael Nadal as well, as he too has had to deal with some major injury concerns. I thoroughly enjoyed the match, with both players showing plenty of vintage form. All I can say is watch out Djokovic and Murray for the rest of the year.
Ari Vatanen Pikes Peak Climb 1988 Incredible Driving Skills
Ari Vatanen at Pikes Peak Hill Climb 1988 in a Peugeot 405 T16, Still one of the greatest ever displays of driving skill
Behind the wheel of a Peugeot 405 T16 at Pikes Peak Hill in 1988 Ari Vatanen produced one of the most incredible displays of driving skill that you would ever wish to see. The Pikes peak road back then was all gravel, so the annual hill climb speed test was a totally different kettle of fish, not to mention the fact that the mountain has incredibly steep drop offs at a number of locations and watching him operating the steering wheel with one hand at times as he uses his other to shield his eyes from the sun whilst maintaining incredible composure, I still marvel at this driving display many years after seeing it and multiple times.
