You know what???

I have fallen in love with you for the eleventh time now…


God! Those tears of joy…

Those Hurrahs and cries.


The anticipation burning till the end,

And that look on your face not sure of a foe or a friend.


Man! I keep romancing with the TV

And hope that you realize me as I am you biggest devotee.


That double fault was just the cherry on the top,

Winner is the best man of all…


Oh critics! Just shut up!

You hurt my hero in the last slams.


The eerie 5-setter didn’t trouble him at all

The thought of losing was all that conspired his fall.


But look at you RAFA!

Amongst the best you shined.


The kingdom of clay is again at your mercy

Grass and Hard Court all clap in glee.


I am at the foot of TV,

Waiting for the coming glory…


Many more slams to come

Many more titles to be won


Each time you pick your racquet

I am waiting for a winner from behind the baseline.


That aggressive look on your face

Strength in your forearm make your opponents fade.


Hope to see you once live

Be it Phillipe Chatrier, Centre Court, Rod Laver Arena or Arthur Ashe…


Continue being the conqueror of the world

I hope you conquer your illness along with all the titles.


See you back on the court with a bang

I am sure I will fall in love with you at every coming instant…
