BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Oh, I'm the first, again.
    I think Nadal, Federer and Djokovic are bound to win the tournament, but only one will rise with the victory .
    I'll talk about the 3 according to what I think about it.
    Nadal: I think Nadal is very weary. He has given everything but his time has finished.
    Federer: He is a living leyend, the master of masters. He can appear always with a magistral match, He is my favourite winner to the tournament.
    Djokovic: After one incredible season I think that from now He only can worsen, but is more likely that Djokovic win the tournament to Nadal

  2. I think this year is going to be difficult that Nadal, who is the best tennis player in the history of Spain, will be able to win Australia Open Tennis because:
    Roger Federer is always nice to win the title, but this year need this title because he hasn´t won one major tournament for time.
    Djokovic may win this tournament because he is in a state of extraordinary form and has the best year of his life.
    Feliciano Lopez isn´t a favorite to win the title and therefore He could give the surprise.
    Murray is a great tennis player in this tournaments as Australian Open Tennis, Wimbledon and EEUU Open Tennis. they deserve it.

  3. The truth is that the favourite is Novak Djokovic because last year he was the tennis player who wont more matches and titles, defeating Nadal on several occasions. But this year I think that is going to win Rfael Nadal or Roger Federer. I think that is going to win Nadal because has rested and he will be very well for the tournament, although this torurnament isn´t the best for him because it´s fast track and he dooesn´t play as well as on clay court. Roger Federer may win because is one of the best players in tennis history and and you can never trust him.

    I don´t think that Djokovic isn´t going to win the torurnament because his lucky year has passed.

  5. I think there are many tennis players able to win these Australian Tennis Open. However, I see Djokovic is the favourite player to win it, not because he is now the number one, but lately he has been displaying an amazing game. He has already proved as last year. If it wasn't, I think Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer would be the main candidates.
    Between these two players mentioned, I think Federer is the favourite because Rafa is not at his best for his physical problems. In addition, the open of Australia is on a fast court, one of which Rafa Nadal dominates worse. If it was Roland Garros, Rafa Nadal would be the winner.
    Although there are also some tennis players, as Murray and Ferrer, who are great players in a good form that could give problems any of the players alreaday mentioned.
    I hope that one of the Spanish players will win this Australian Open.

  6. In my opinion there are some Spanish tennis players able to win these Australian Tennis Open. The problem is the number 1 Djokovic is the favourite to win this amazing competitions. Murray and Federer also are good. Another problems are the physical problems of Rafael Nadal.
    There is another Spanish tennis player good is David Ferrer. I hope that Rafael Nadal is going to win the Australian Tennis Open.

    Nadal has got problems in his leg but I hope he is going to win this Australian Tennis Open.

  9. I already know who has won but I´m going to talk as If I didn´t know who was the winner.
    The favourite player is Novak, because he did the last year the fifth best season in the history defeating Nadal in 7 consecutive finals, I think Nadal won´t win because Murray and Federer are in perfect conditions,and Murray won Nadal 6-0 not long ago,and Federer always has his options to win.
    Definitely,I think novak will win.

  10. I think that either Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djockic will win the Australian Open Tennis Championships 2013 . If Nadal hasn`t physical problems he will win, but the Australia Open is on a fast court and that`s why I think that Novak has more options because his features are the best for this court.
    In my opinion Andy Murray is having a incredible progression and I think that he will be the number 1 next year but Novak Djokovic is in a fantastic level and I don´t think that Novak wants to loose the number 1.

  12. This year, in my opinion, is going to be very difficult for Rafa again, because Novak Djokovic is in a great moment, and is almost impossible to win him. Last year, Djokovic won almost all, he only lost Roland Garros, the only Grand Slam that won the spanish player. I think this year Djokovic is going to win USA Open too, but Roland Garros and Wimbledon, I think is going to be won by Rafa Nadal, they both have started really strong this year.

  14. I think that Nadal is strong, including his backache he continues playing the match, he never left it.
    Nadal gave everything on the court, but he lost the title he thought to have been won. He won a seet and when the match finally he ask about the people.

  15. In my opinion,Nadal is the best tennis player in the world.
    On the one hand Nadal has never left any match, if he has problems with his health continues playing and.
    On the other hand, he doesn´t leave the game although he is losing. At the moment, Nadal are having many problems with his health and he has continues backache. This and the improve of their enemies, as Roger federer, in the game difficult for Nadal win. ¿Can Nadal win others matches? Yes, he can. All people are with you! CAME ON NADAL!

  16. I think Nadal is really strong because, in spite of his backache he continued playing the match and he never thought about giving up.
    Nadal gave everything on the court, but he lost the title he thought he was going to win. He even won a set and when the match finished he still attended the journalists.

  18. I think that he's a good player. He is strong and active. He wins almost every match,he won the Australia Open.
    When he was little he practised lots of different sports. His first competition was he was 9 years old, and he won.
    When he was 15 years old he was the youngest player in the world. He is my favourite tennis player and I watch him on my TV with my dad.

  20. I think Rafa Nadal is the best player in the history of Spain and the world, although the latter has lost the tournament because of muscle discomfort.

    Although he had a lot of pain in the back, he was giving us to end a lesson to all physical and mental capacity and showing us how tough sport and you have to work hard to be the best athlete in the world and win many awards .
