Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

Referred to by my biology teacher in high school as a “cellular workhorse” this molecule is constantly being used and reused in the living cell to facilitate energy transfer for a wide range of metabolic processes. Cells break down the ATP to release energy for vital processes and also reform the molecule in order to transfer energy onwards, hence ATP’s nickname as the “energy currency” in cells. The breakdown process involves the removal of the phosphate group on the end (top-left in the diagram) to convert the molecule into ADP (adenosine diphosphate).

The phosphorus design is based on the 5-petal Woodland Star flower, each petal having 3 lobes.

It is a common misconception that today is the anniversary of first Rafa vs. Roger match

Let me tell you the truth.

They first met on March 17th 2004 in Indian Wells doubles 2nd round, where they were paired Yves Allegro/Roger Federer vs. Rafa Nadal/Tommy Robredo. Rafa and Tommy beat Yves and Roger 7:5, 4:6, 3:6, however in the next round they lost in two sets to Bhupati/Mirnyi.

Roger continued to play in singles where in semi final he beat Agassi and in the final he beat Tim Henman (the one from Henman hill for younger generation lol)

Here’s Rafa chilling out in Roger’s box with Mirka Vavrinec during Roger’s quaterfinal against Juan Ignacio Chela


As for today, their first singles match can be seen HERE. Also check out my FEDAL MASTERPOST for (almost) all Fedal matches.
