Nirmal Shekar on Federer/Wimbledon

I have admired Nirmal Shekar over the years, having been a loyal reader of The Sportstar, and although the magazine itself has fallen into somewhat of a decline (courtsey the numerous columns by former or current athletes), Shekar continues to tickle the senses. In particular, his Shakespearean-drama style description of a game of tennis, or any sporting event for that matter, is immensely enjoyable. - NK

No one better in the flield of print media can express his/her thoughts better than Nirmal Shekar and the degree of speech he makes use of to describe an issuse is brilliant.

i am also a great admirer of Nirmal Shekar's choice of words. I wish I could be as good a writer as he is.

Conratulations to my favourite writer for bagging as many as four awards. Very well deserved!

Yeah. I'm a big fan of Nirmal.But, I am getting feeling that he is little biased towards Roger. Whenever he wins, Nirmal produces a master-piece of his own. When Nadal wins the quality and appreciation for Nadal weren't the same. I have felt it on more than one occasion before making this comment. Do you guys feel the same?
