“It was a fantastic game of cricket”
Said Kane Williamson, captain of the New Zealand Cricket team the Black Caps, in his post-match interview following his team’s loss to England in the final of the Cricket World Cup at Lords in London over the weekend. Williamson has shown sports fans and elite athletes alike how to behave with humility, how to accept heartbreak.
Whilst just over the river at Wimbledon, another epic match finished with victory for Novak Djokovic over Roger Federer. 5 hours long, 13-12 in the final set. Federer says “You try to forget, try to take the good things out of this match. There’s just tons of it, I think it’s a mindset. I’m very strong at being able to move on because I don’t want to be depressed about actually an amazing tennis match.”
