RAFAEL NADAL AND THE EVENING OF AUGUST 10, 2017 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Sport is both the ultimate pleasure of human life as it can also be its extreme sadness… 
The evening of August 10, 2017 will be for me a sad souvenir as it is also the end of the great joy and admiration that began on August 14, 2005! 
Indeed, on August 14, 2005, Rafael Nadal (19 years) had created then his own legend by surpassing the other legend André Agassi at the Stade in Montréal and becoming the great champion of tennis of the last twelve years. 
The evening of August 10, 2017 will be the one of his defeat before a very young newcomer, also a beginner of 18 years old… One could say that history repeats itself! 
We will also remember the evening of August 10th, as the one where former hockey champion Wayne Gretzky will have lost his cell phone under the bleachers and that the ball riders have managed to find it back…
