A sport event I have attended
I like speaking about this topic, because I am a huge tennis fan. My most memorable match was in the last year, the Roland Garros final. I got the ticket, and the trip to Paris for my 18th birthday, from my niece who came with me because he likes tennis too. When I got the ticket I didn’t know who would play in the final, but I was very lucky, because my favourite player Maria Sharapova reached the final and she had the chance to win the French Open and to secure a Career Grand Slam. (The career achievement of all four major championships is termed a Career Grand Slam.) I was very excited when we arrived at Paris. Maria played against Sara Errani, who was very good on that surface, but on that day Sharapova was undoubtedly better. The match lasted one and a half hour and I enjoyed every moment of it. After a nerveless and virtually faultless performance, full of clean hitting and daring attack, Sharapova fell to her knees as Errani netted on match point. The Russian held her head in her hands for a moment, before jumping to her feet and twirling with joy. After Wimbledon in 2004, the US Open in 2006 and the Australian Open in 2008, she won all four majors - a career Grand Slam. She ist he 10th woman tennis player, who was able to secure a Career Grand Slam and I am very happy I could see that moment from the grandstand. I think I will never forget this experience, it was the best present for my birthday.
