July 11 proved to be the day of upsets in Tennis and Football. The legendary Roger Federer who has an exceptional and unreal record at the Wimbledon, lost to the eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson from South Africa. Moreover, England lost to Croatia in a humdinger of a semi-final in the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia. Interestingly, Sachin Tendulkar had backed both, Federer and England, to win their respective matches. Unfortunately, the results were reversed and Twitter has started trolling the master blaster for jinxing them.
Ahead of the quarterfinal clash, Federer and Sachin had exchanged pleasantries on the social media. The latter had wished him all the luck for the game and no wonder he was tipped to come out on top against Anderson. But the Tennis star from the rainbow nation prevailed in a thriller and caused a huge upset.
Meanwhile, there was more for the genuine sports fans to suffer as Croatia beat England in the tussle for the Final. Sachin Tendulkar had also supported England in his Twitter post earlier on Wednesday and had backed them to book the date with France on Sunday for the title clash.
Stop supporting India
Very few things go unnoticed on social media nowadays and Twiterrati was quick to pounce on Sachin for jinxing both Federer and England. They lashed out at him and requested not to support India in the first ODI against England on Thursday. Few were also worried about India’s fortune in the World Cup next year as they thought the Men in Blue will not win it if the Master backs them.
Sachin is not the first cricketer to face the heat from the Tweeples. The Indian captain Virat Kohli was also trolled recently for supporting Germany as the defending champions were crashed out of the mega event in the group stages itself.
Here are some of the hilarious trolls:
Sachin Tendulkar thought Federer will win and he lost.
Sachin Tendulkar thought England will win and they lost.
I can't think of a reason why he thought Sri Lanka will win in the 2011 WC final.
