Spanning the Twitterverse: Novak vs Rafa #EPIC

A very good sports weekend wasn’t it sports fans? College football brought us some crazy finishes on Friday night and Saturday. Tennis brought some, umm, unforgettable moments too (Google: Serena meltdown). And of course the king, the NFL’s opening weekend.

There was so much to choose from for today’s blog post, including one about social media guidelines for….media. But, I’ll save that for another day.

With this time of year, how can you not be in a good mood if you’re a sports fan? Today was especially good for tv viewing and Twitter following; not for what you might think. I am talking about an #EPIC men’s US Open final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. It wasn’t #EPIC in that it went to a five set tiebreak, but rather the quality of the tennis leading up to the final point was outstanding. As some of the tweets say that you read below, it was like a heavyweight boxing match.Two champions exchanging punches (cross-court forehands and backhands), body-blows (down the line winners), staggering the opponent while staggering in their own right, dripping with sweat and extending every ounce of energy they can coax out of their bodies. It was “beautiful”.

It was #EPIC. Two champions. Both classy in character. Only one winner. Congratulations Novak Djokovic. Well done Rafael Nadal.

TWEET OF THE DAY

Usually this spot is reserved for a tweet that was just LOL funny, perfectly “head-scratching” or in this case, a perfect summation of the post. In this case, Jay Bilas “for the win“.
