We had an interesting talk in my office and I brought up the fact that the the Laver Cup which is. named after the famous Australian tennis player Ron Laver which was played this weekend in London was magical.
We had an interesting talk in my office.

I mentioned the fact that the Laver Cup which is. named after the famous Australian tennis player Ron Laver was played this weekend in London was magical.

Recent Black Tennis Stars:

For the first time ever Team World beat Team Europe even though team Europe had some of the most famous players who ever played the game, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Raphael Nadal, and Andy Murray.

 I mentioned the fact that two black tennis players made major contributions to the winning of the Laver Cup by Team World.

The two Black athletes one from Canada and one from the United States were the stars this past weekend.

Wow who would have guessed - Miracle in London

When I first saw the lineup of the European players who were playing this year in the Laver Cup against the rest of the world known as Team World frankly I didn't think there was a chance in hell that Team World would win. 



After all who would be able to beat Grand Slam legions such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray plus other up and coming stars such as Stefanos Tsitsipas

I thought I would tune in last night and check it out when I got back from the Komune Beach club with my family.

When I first tuned in Felix Auger Aliassime paired up with America's Jack Sooke was not looking very promising against Italy's Beritini and Grand Slam winner Andy Murray of the United Kingdom.

Suddenly they came back in the second set and then went on to win a long tiebreaker.

Watching these pro’s playing in a game that I play four times a week and listening to the commentator Todd Woodridge who he and his brother were arguably the best doubles players ever gave great hints and keep me up way past my bedtime at 10 AM.

I woke up suddenly at 3 AM and I decided just to check the scores of the singles match Canadian Felix versus one of the best players ever Novak Djokovic.

Frankly, I was expecting to see Felix losing or having a hard time winning.

Who would've thought he would take that match 6-3 and the second set 7-6.

Finally, I woke up at 4 o'clock and couldn't sleep because I knew what was going on when I saw that Team World was ahead 10 points and the final match was being played with the recent winner of the U.S. Open American, Tiafoe against highly ranked Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Again, after losing the first set, he came back to win the second set and a long tiebreaker to break the ice for the first-time and Team World for the first time ever beat the European team.

What a miracle and one I was proud to watch firsthand. I was especially very proud of Team World especially my fellow Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime.

I predict in the near future barring any serious injuries Felix will take a grand slam title.

Team World beats Team Europe to win Laver Cup for first time 

 
Last evening ended very nicely after our Canadian Tennis Pro Felix won the doubles match against Beretini and Murry and then went on to beat Jokovic at the Laver cup in London.


Later the American Tiafoe beat the Greek and for the first time in history Team World beat team Europe . Even though team Europe had Federer, Nadal, Joko and Murray.
It was some of the best tennis I’ve seen a long time

LONDON, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Team World rallied to beat Team Europe 13-8 to win the Laver Cup for the first time after five attempts here on Sunday.

Team World trailed behind 8-4 after the first two days, but won three matches in a row in the last competition day on Sunday to turn the table.

The Laver Cup, held from September 23 to 25 in London, is a men's tennis tournament played between players from Europe and and players from the rest of the world. Each win secures one point on the opening day, two points on day two, and three points on the final matchday.

On the third day, Felix Auger Aliassime paired up with America's Jack Sock to defeat Italy's Matteo Berrettini and British veteran Andy Murray 2-6, 6-3 and 10-8 in the doubles match. The 22-year-old Canadian then kept his momentum in the singles match, outplaying Serbia's Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-6 (3).

Djokovic, 35, admitted that a problem with his right wrist had affected him during the match, but insisted that Aliassime deserved the win with his outstanding performance.

America's Frances Tiafoe eventually sealed the overall victory for Team World as the 24-year-old came from behind to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 1-6, 7-6(11), 10-8.

Tiafoe, teaming up with Sock, defeated Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the doubles match last Friday, and joked that he would not apologise to the Swiss legend as the 20-time Grand Slam winner not only ended his professional tour journey with a loss, but had no chance to lift the Laver Cup with Team Europe.

"He has got a lot to apologise for the last 24 years after beating everybody on the tour," quipped Tiafoe.

Federer, 41, announced his retirement last week and decided to play his last pro match together with long-time rival and friend Nadal at the Laver Cup.

"Being on court on Friday and having such a huge moment in my career, being surrounded by my biggest rivals like Novak and Andy and Rafa was truly unique, and I can never thank them enough for being there and staying there and going through it with me," said Federer.

Federer has promised he will be on site at the 2023 Laver Cup in Vancouver, Canada to cheer for both teams as a fan. ■

At the end of our conversation, I made a comment that this shows that allowing talented immigrants into any country improves the quality of the country and what it can accomplish.


Sadly, I didn't think to take a joint photograph with him and my lovely wife Azizah, but we certainly will the next time.

Lovemore Ndou (born 16 August 1971) is a South African-Australian[1] solicitor[2] and former professional boxer who competed from 1993 to 2012. He held the IBF junior-welterweight title in 2007, and the IBO welterweight title from 2009 to 2010.

Professional career

Lovemore was born in Musina, South Africa, and started boxing at the age of 16. He had a successful amateur career of 68 fights with 66 wins and 2 losses, where he was a four-time South African champion in four consecutive years. He could not compete on an international level as South Africa then was banned from international competition due to its practice of Apartheid.

Ndou made his professional debut in 1993 against Enoch Khuzwayo in Johannesburg, South Africa winning on a points decision.

In his 13th professional fight in August 1995, Ndou fought for the South African Super Featherweight Title against Mthobeli Mhlophe with the contest ending in a draw. After that bout Ndou left South Africa and migrated to settle in Australia beginning a run of 17 consecutive victories from May 1996 to June 2000 rising to a world WBC #2 ranking, before a loss in a 10-round unanimous points decision against former WBC International champion Guillermo Mosquera.

After the loss to Mosquera, Ndou lost motivation and fought rarely with only 3 fights in 2 years before heading to the United States for 3 fights during 2002 culminating in 2 losses.

Ndou won his first major professional title on 29 November 2002 defeating Sarit Saeknaew by TKO to claim the IBF Pan Pacific Light Welterweight Title at Festival Hall in Melbourne. During 2003, Ndou made three successful defences of his IBF Pan Pacific Light Welterweight Title before an IBF World Light Welterweight Title bout against Sharmba Mitchell on 7 February 2004 in Atlantic City, USA. Ndou lost the bout against Mitchell via a unanimous points decision.

Following the loss to Mitchell, Ndou returned to Australia to defend his IBF Pan Pacific Light Welterweight Title twice before heading to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA to fight Miguel Angel Cotto for the WBC International Light Welterweight Title and WBA Fedelatin Light Welterweight Title on 8 May 2004 with Ndou again losing via a unanimous points decision. Ndou closed out 2004 retaining his IBF Pan Pacific Light Welterweight Title against Ruben Francisco Silva Diaz in Sydney.

Ndou began 2005 with a 12 rounds unanimous points loss to Junior Witter at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, USA for the Commonwealth Light Welterweight Title. Over the next 18 months following the loss to Witter, Ndou defended his IBF Pan Pacific Light Welterweight Title on four occasions to rise to the world IBF #1 Light Welterweight ranking at the start of 2007.

On 4 February 2007 in Sydney, Ndou fought in the Australian Fight of the Year and defeated Naoufel Ben Rabah in an IBF World Light Welterweight Title Eliminator for the right to meet current title holder Ricky Hatton, after Hatton had won the title against Juan Urango in Las Vegas, USA two weeks earlier. Hatton however refused the IBF's demand that he fight Ndou for the IBF World Light Welterweight Title, instead scheduling a fight against José Luis Castillo. Following Hatton's decision, the IBF stripped Hatton of the IBF World Light Welterweight Title, awarding Ndou the title on 12 February 2007. Ndou lost his first title defense on 16 June 2007 against American Paul Malignaggi in Uncasville, Connecticut, USA.

After that bout Ndou stayed in America and worked as the main sparring partner for Floyd Mayweather for his bout against Ricky Hatton. While waiting to fight Malignaggi again he knocked out Rafael Ortiz in the 7th round as a stay busy fight. On 24 May 2008, Lovemore got his rematch against Malignaggi. The bout was fought as the main supporting bout to the Ricky Hatton vs. Juan Lazcano bout at the City of Manchester Stadium in Manchester, United Kingdom. The bout was a much different one from their first encounter, with Malignaggi taking the lead a lot more and N'dou playing the role of counter-puncher. CompuBox Punchstats showed that Ndou landed 23% of his punches, while Malignaggi connected with 17%. In the end the Malignaggi again won the bout, this time by a close split decision.

Ndou studied law at the University of Western Sydney, and having retired from boxing operates successful legal practice Lovemore Lawyers in Rockdale, Sydney.[3]

     Sanur Real Estate - Hottest in History:

    Anybody that has ever attended one of our seminars, listened to our radio program or read our blogs is well aware that we have been saying “Bali real estate demand is directly proportional to Bali tourist demand”.

     Bali real estate  demand is directly propotional to Bali Tourist Demand"

     I have also been predicting that Sanur would be the place that a percentage of  the 25% of the population of the world that are Baby Boomers would live in the future.


    I named our first Villa Complex Golden Villas because of the Golden Aged Owners and Guests who would be attracted to them.

     Sanur designated as Special Economic Zone.

     Recently the President of Indonesia, fondly called Jokowi, announced here live that over 20 Hectares of land including the Grand Bali Beach Hotel is now designated as a Special Economic Zone.

     What is really exciting is that this special economic zone is within walking distance of our three Bali Luxury Villas complexes

    This new  special economic zone will be mostly utilized for medical tourism, primarily for the elderly from around the world.

    Boomers from around the world will come here and be treated for everything from a facelifts to cancer treatment at a fraction of the cost in their country. 

    The famous Mayo Clinic has decided to be part of this complex.

      If you drive by there right now you will see buildings going up like crazy.

     I am sure they want to produly show this economic miracle to the G 20 leaders and associates when they come here.

    Largest Real Estate Boom in Sanur History:

     I have been predicting for years that there would be a real estate boom in Sanur from Baby Boomer Demand.

     It is happening right now. 

    There has never seen more demand for Sanur Land, Villas, Homes and even million-dollar 100-million-dollar hotels than  in my 26 years living here.

    For example, recently I had a call from one contact who has an owner from Jakarta looking for a hundred million dollar plus hotel in Sanur.

     Later that day I had another contact call me and tell me that he would like to share with me a development plan that is taking place on the Southern Beach of Sanur which will include hundreds of beachside expensive villas and a first-class marina.                                                                                                          Boomers Moving from Crazy, Gridlocked Southwestern Areas:

    Then a few days later during a private Bali Hai cruise one person after another told me that they want to move away from Canggu, Kerobokan and even Seminyak because it has just gotten crazy over there with grid lock traffic and a dramatic rise in crime.May be an image of 3 people, people standing and outdoors

     Some of our Villa owners are reporting extraordinary rental prices right now for long-term rentals.

     I am receiving one to three requests every week for long-term rental villas.

     Couple with that there has been a large number of improvements in Sanur restaurants, grocery marts etc. and Sanur is now the place to retire as I predicted.

     I personally along with a lot of seniors have been playing tennis twice a week at the new first class Liga Club which has a gym, six tennis courts, Pool, and other facilities.

    2022-2025 - Will be Hottest Rental and Sales Market in History

     We Hope that you enjoyed this update and join me in being enthusiastic about Bali’s future, especially Sanur.

    There is no question in my mind that Bali will continue to be one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. 

    If you read TripAdvisor’s report in January of this year, we are ranked fourth.

      I believe we will move up in rankings this year because if you look at our competition, London which is suffering through drought and 40 C Temperatures and Cancun which is almost shut down right now due to Covid-19 we certainly look better.

    I will go on out on a limb with a Nostradamus Moment and Predict that for the next 2-5 years Sanur will be one of the top three or five hottest real estate markets of Bali, Asia and even the world as it returns to the 2014 prices for real estate.

    " Next 2-5 years Sanur will be one of the top three or five hottest real estate markets of Bali, Asia and even the world" L/B. Sept 2022

     Very sincerely.
