Jaguar released their new ad for their cars yesterday, making good use of Benedict Cumberbatch as the voiceover. Where we were worried Jaguar might lose their British spark after being taken over by 'Tata', we're pleased to say that this is not the case, as the new ad demonstrates. The British actor, Cumberbatch, states "there is one machine that makes us greater. A machine so instinctive, so seductive, it's as alive as we are. It doesn't click, or buzz. It roars. Jaguar". The ad asks 'how alive are you' at the end, but we feel obliged to ask in exclamation the same of Jaguar, because they have never been more alive than they are today. Signs of great progress are being shown when car experts themselves are lauding the new found reliability within Jaguars. As quoted from Lyndon for the Telegraph, "despite press anxiety at the time [due to Tata acquiring Jaguar from Ford back in 2008], we seem to be enjoying the best Jaguars ever made".
Novak Djokovic made it through to the second round of the Dubai Tennis Championships yesterday, after defeating Stebe 6-4 6-2, accomplished in a mere 88 minutes. The defending champion said after the match "He [Stebe] definitely played well, I was impressed with his game, especially in the first set. It could have gone a different way really, because he was returning well. He went on the court wanting to win, and that's the right attitude, I think. I was really happy throughout the whole match the way I played. I really didn't have many downs in the game. He made me play it. He gave me good rhythm and went for his shots and made a lot of winners. Credit to him. I'm happy with the first match after four weeks definitely". After winning this tournament 3 times in the past, we have no doubt that he will be able to snag the title for the 4th time, despite notable players such as Roger Federer taking part.

Our favourite tennis player, Novak Djokovic, gained prestigious recognition when awarded with Serbia's top state honour, the 'Order of the Karadjordje's Star of the 1st degree', in Serbia a few days ago. Additionally, he has been announced as the best ambassador for Serbia worldwide. These achievements prompted him to say "I may have dreamed of lifting the trophy at Wimbledon, but I could never have thought that my country would reward me with such great honour. I am indebted to my people, and I will do my best to continue representing our beautiful country in the best possible way". Also in recent news, the Serbian tennis star admitted that he's finding it difficult to keep his feet on the ground despite his fame and glory, but assured us that he's trying his level best, which is more than you can ask for. He will take part in the Dubai Tennis Championships very soon, where he is set to defend his title.
