I Have Seen Gladiators

Its rare that you get to see a real contest of wills, the sheer ebb and flow of best blows taken for minute advantage only to be repulsed, and the sheer extravagance of seeing pounding shot after shot taken that you know to be, from your own dallying in the game, of a sublime nature. But even that shot returned with an even greater skill. And then again. Then throw in the elements of alternate Sun, wind, rain delays and approaching darkness. That was the delight of the five set Wimbledon Men’s Finals between Spain’s Rafael Nadal and Switzerland’s Roger Federer. After that match I can say I have seen gladiators.
