Published

on

The Undertaker needs no introduction to the world of WWE. He is one of the most respected Superstars in the industry and is adored by the WWE Universe. Fans line up just to watch The Deadman make an appearance in a WWE ring.

 

The Undertaker is more famously known for his unbeaten WrestleMania streak that was broken by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. Since then, The Undertaker has made sporadic appearances but has never missed an edition of The Show of Shows barring WrestleMania 35

        The Undertaker on his uncertain future in the WWE

In an interview, when asked about his future in the WWE and whether he will wrestle anymore, The Undertaker had the following to say,

“I feel like I’ve got a match (left) that is befitting what I feel like that the legacy of The Undertaker deserves. “But the hard part is, if I grade myself, I grade myself on where I was physically in the early 2000s. I don’t grade myself on the curve of it being 2020 and being 55 years old. The expectations of what I have for myself, with the limitations that I have physically, it really is a delicate balance. You’ve got to take a really good look (and ask yourself), OK, is this the match that you’re looking for, is it in the realm of possibility and do I risk long-term damage?… I have young kids still. Do you run the risk of jeopardizing your long-term health? All this is kind of what’s going on in my head during this docuseries. What I’m looking for and trying to achieve. Trying to come to grips with leaving that aspect of the business.”

It is a delight to watch The Phenom perform in the WWE. Every year, rumors surface about whether The Undertaker will retire. It looked like he had hung up his boots after Roman Reigns defeated him at WrestleMania 33, but he kept returning to the ring.

This year’s WrestleMania was no different, as we saw The Undertaker go head to head with ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles in WWE’s first-ever Boneyard Match.

Novak Djokovic Set to Surpass Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in Another Elite Record

Published

on

All in all, it has been another fabulous year for World No.1 Novak Djokovic. One Grand Slam title, two Masters 1000 titles and he has consolidated his position at the number one spot in the ATP rankings. Djokovic is eyeing another record that he could match at the end of the 2020 season.

Djokovic now will most likely match Pete Sampras’ record of having the most number of year-end World No.1. Sampras has held the year-end number one ranking six times in his career. The ‘big 3’ of Novak DjokovicRafael Nadal, and Roger Federer are tied with five. So Djokovic could jump his arch-rivals and go equal with Sampras.

The Serbian jumped Nadal in the rankings early on in the season. After a bad Australian Open, Nadal lost a considerable amount of points and Djokovic won the Australian Open which helped him regain the number one ranking. After the season restart, Djokovic won the Cincinnati Masters which earned him points. Later he added the Italian Open and then by reaching the finals at French Open 2020, it helped Djokovic forge a huge gap from second-place Rafael Nadal. Djokovic is currently on 11,740 points to Nadal’s 9850.

Last year it was Nadal who held the year-end number one ranking which tied him level with Federer and Djokovic. Surprisingly Federer held the year-end number one ranking back in 2009 and since has reached the World No.1 ranking but has failed to stay on it till the end of the season.

Barring 2016, the big 3 have held the year-end number one ranking since 2004. In 2016 after a magical year from Andy Murray, the Brit held the number one ranking for the first time and ended the season ranked number one. He had won 9 titles including one Grand Slam title and he retained his Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

With the year-end number one ranking almost a certain for Djokovic, the Serbian has a longer goal of surpassing Federer’s record of most weeks as World No.1. Djokovic is into his 291st week as World No.1 and he is just 19 short of Federer’s 310.
