TWO SPORTS & TWO CHAMPIONS


Hifriends! In this post we want talk about two sports and two champions  These sportsaren’t as popular as football  in Italy  but we like them and we would like to share our interest with you.

BASKETBALL

In Italian we call it Basket, short for what in English is basketball. It is a team sport where there are two 5 – player teams.
You have to use only your hands to score a point in the rival basket.
Basketball  was invented in 1891 by James Naismith, a Canadian P.E. teacher.
Now it is played all over the world, even though it is extremely popular in the  U.S.A.

One of the best basketballers,actually,is LeBron James.
He is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The most important things he has won are 3 NBA championships and two Olympic gold medals
In our opinion, in addition to being one of the best nowadays  he is one of the best in basketball history.



TENNIS

Tennis is a singular or team sport because there are tournaments where you play alone against the rival(1 vs 1) or where you play with a teammate against two rivals (2 vs 2).
You play with a tennis racket and you have to use it to hit the ball to score a point in the rival field.
The most important competitions in tennis are Grand Slam tournaments: Wimbledon(London),Roland Garros(Paris), Us open(New York city) and Australian open(Melbourne)


Nowadays one of the best tennis players is Novak Djokovic and his nickname is Nole or Djoker.
He was born in 1987 in Belgrado(Serbia).
He has won all the Grand Slam tournaments and an olympic medal.
In the latest years his rivalry with other tennis champions like Nadal, Federer or Murray has grown.



These two champions are examples for the people who believe in sport because apart from being champions in their sports, they are a good models, good people.
Even if we aren’t basketball fans, we sometimes play basketball during our P.E.lessons and it is an amazing sport.
Instead,  we can’t say the same for tennis because we played it just once during a school camp at the seaside.

Can you play tennis or basketball? What do you think of these sports?
