CRPF man’s son is India’s hero in U-19 World Cup, sets up win over Bangladesh

AT THE CRPF camp in Odisha’s Maoist-affected Rayagada district, no one knew Ravi Kumar. A handful knew his father, Rajinder Singh, an Assistant Sub Inspector. But Saturday night changed it all. Ravi, a left-arm seamer, nabbed three wickets for 14 runs — highlighted by an opening spell of 5-1-5-3 — to set up India’s five-wicket victory over Bangladesh for a place in the semifinals of U-19 World Cup in West Indies.

Daniil Medvedev ‘not that disappointed’ after losing two-set lead to Rafael Nadal | Tennis News – Times of India

MELBOURNE: Daniil Medvedev insisted Sunday he was not disappointed to give up a two-set lead and lose the Australian Open, while heaping praise on "unreal" Rafael Nadal.

But the never-say-die Spaniard saved them all before battling back for a famous 2-6, 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 victory in a gruelling 5hr 24min to deny Medvedev and win a historic 21st Grand Slam title. "If we talk about tennis, I'm not that disappointed. It was a huge match," said the 25-year-old Russian. "For sure, some small points, small details that I could have done better if I wanted to...

From Down Under to 21st century: Spaniard puts heartbreaks in Australia behind him

It’s fitting that Melbourne Park was the venue for Rafael Nadal’s record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title. The 2-6, 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 over Daniil Medvedev also ended his long wait of winning all four Grand Slams at least twice. Injuries and bad luck had put the ‘hard’ in ‘hardcourts’ for Nadal at the Australian Open — christened the ‘Happy Slam’ by Roger Federer for being the first Major of the season for the recharged, inspired players. After winning his first hardcourt Major at the Australian Open in 2009 — a five-set victory that reduced the Swiss great to tears — Nadal had had a horrid run of luck Down Under. The venue has witnessed two of the only three times that Nadal has retired midway into a match: the 2010 and 2018 quarterfinals. That 2️⃣1️⃣ moment#AusOpen • #AO2022 • @Ra...
