          Picking up a few of these sports, first in the tennis world, new interesting names that are coming out are the likes of Alexander Zverev, the 6'6" 21 yrs old German who made big waves most notably in the Roland Garros tournament

All throughout the year 2018, several interesting bouts were held and in all of them, joy was evident on the faces of those triumphant ones while pain of defeat was rather displayed on the not so lucky ones.
