Robredo Flips Off Murray!

Spanish tennis star exasperated after Valencia Open final loss

After battling against Andy Murray for three hours and 20 minutes in the Valencia Open final, Spanish tennis player Tommy Robredo was buggered. 

But not only was he buggered, he was also pretty peeved at the fact that he squandered five championship points to let the title slip through his fingers in front of his home fans. 

After losing 3-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-6 (10-8), Robredo let Murray know how he felt in the only way he knew how – a double bird! 

Luckily Murray saw the funny side of it.

Kelly Slater Lands 'Mind-Bending' 540 Air

WATCH VIDEO: Unbelievably the 11-time world champion continues to improve.

Image: Youtube/ASP

At the age of 42 you would imagine that Kelly Slater’s best surfing is behind him.

Not true.

The 11-time world championship had the surfing world in raptures over the weekend after he landed a 540 rotation which the ASP has described as 'mind bending'.

Stab Magazine went one better saying the move is 'arguably the best air ever made'.

Unfortunatly for Slater, the amazing trick occurred during a lay day of the Moche Rip Curl Pro in Portugal so he didn’t score any points for it.

Slater currently sits 2nd on the world tour rankings behind Brazil’s Gabriel Medina with only one event remaining - The Billabong Pipe Masters in Hawaii.
