Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
This week's sportsman is slowly etching his name into the fabric of his sport. Particularly at the French Open. Rafael Nadal became the first gentleman's player to win the same Grand Slam event eight times. Rafa is the best man on clay ever, and perhaps the best player on any individual surface. In his last 60 matches at Roland Garros in Paris, he's lost one. Fellow Spaniard David Ferrer had no answers over three sets, only eeking out 8 games. At 12 majors, he's only chasing Pete Sampras and Roger Federer. But chasing nobody in French Open history, and this weeks Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week.
