Among country’s fastest athletes, even dope testers can’t reach her

A CAT-AND-MOUSE game is on between one of the country’s top 400m woman athletes and dope testers after her sudden improvement in timings caught the attention of a global anti-doping watchdog. During a recent national athletics meet, the athlete ran several seconds faster than her previous best timing, made it to India’s all-time best list, and qualified for the World Championship. The performance also brought her on the radar of Monaco-based Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), an independent body with an aim to weed out cheats. But the AIU testers have not been able to trace the athlete — and she has gone incommunicado, The Indian Express has learnt. The athlete was to fly to Antalya in Turkey mid-April with other quartermilers and members of the 4×100 women’s relay squad but did not re...

MI vs KKR: Fired up fast bowlers Bumrah, Cummins deliver with pace and bounce; Rohit rues a tech goof up

Amid the noise around Umran Malik et al, Jasprit Bumrah had taken a back seat. Mumbai Indians were playing for pride and maybe, the fast bowler had a point to prove – actually who is the real boss. A fired up Bumrah is an uncommon sight in cricket. He usually lets his bowling do the talking. But today he was animated. It was a slow burn. Bumrah beat Andre Russell for pace and casually celebrated the big man’s scalp. Nitish Rana’s wicket, via a sharp bouncer, had the latency of a review; Bumrah didn’t hear anything but Ishan Kishan behind the stumps was convinced and the ‘keeper was right. By the time he bounced out Pat Cummins, Bumrah was firing on all cylinders. He gave the Aussie a send off. Sunil Narine was a jumping jack against a 145kph thunderbolt. Bumrah, pumped by the adrenalin...

IPL 2022: KKR’s Boult, Cummins, Russell hit back as team win do-or-die after Bumrah’s five wicket burst

Kolkata Knight Riders endured a fiery five-wicket burst from Jasprit Bumrah that sent them plummeting from 123 for 2 to 165 for 9. They regrouped at the break and came back to blow away Mumbai Indians for 113 to stay alive in IPL 2022. KKR start well In a win-or-exit match, KKR had gone all out, as was to be expected from a side coached by Brendon McCullum. They had made as many as five changes to their XI – their opening combination from the start of the season, Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer, was back, so were old hands Pat Cummins and Varun Chakaravarthy, and they’d sacrificed a seamer for an extra batsman; there was no doubt they would go as hard as they could, barring Rahane’s anchoring presence, as it turned out. The approach had worked nicely too; they’d wanted to bat first, a...

Alcaraz’s drop shot: When audacity meets playfulness and embarrasses legends

Not since Michael Chang’s underarm serve to Ivan Lendl has cheekiness on red clay been as celebrated as this past month. Spanish teen sensation Carlos Alcaraz has made a habit of stunning world tennis’ leading lights with his well-disguised delicate drop shots. Among those who have scampered up the court in a hurry, only to see the ball float across the net, land inside the service box, bounce a couple of times and roll under their racquets are Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev. Gymnast-like flexibility, well-sculpted sprinter’s legs or those long jumper’s limbs haven’t helped them reach the balls that seem to mysteriously lose bounce on crossing the net. At times, when Alcaraz has decided to dramatically drop the pace of his stroke, even the game’s best hustler, aka Nad...

Djokovic says ‘special’ Alcaraz is a firm favourite for French Open | Tennis News – Times of India

World number one Novak Djokovic heaped praise on newly-crowned Madrid Open champion Carlos Alcaraz, saying that the Spanish teenager is a firm favourite for the French Open later this month. Alcaraz announced himself in Madrid when he played with a sore ankle but still dispatched three top five players -- Rafa Nadal, Djokovic and Alexander Zverev -- en route to his second Masters title, just days after his 19th birthday. Djokovic described Alcaraz as a "complete player" and the "talk of the sport" after the Spaniard won a tour-leading fourth title of the year. "He definitely is special. Already he's breaking a lot of records as a teenager, winning two Masters events this year, a couple of (ATP) 500s. So far he's the best player in the world, no question, this year," Djokovic told report...

SULAYMANIYAH (Iraq): Continuing their dominance in a depleted field, Indian junior archers confirmed six more medals, including two gold, in the individual sections of the Asia Cup Stage 2 on Monday. Having sealed six medals in team events on Sunday, the Indians did an encore in the individual sections riding on a superlative show by the compound archers.

Schalke promoted back to Bundesliga after ending Russia ties

Schalke is coming back to the Bundesliga after a year of transformation on and off the field. A humiliating relegation from the top division forced one of Germany’s traditional giants to rebuild its team. Then came the war in Ukraine and Schalke cut ties with the Russian state gas company Gazprom, the financial fuel for some of its greatest successes, leaving the club facing an uncertain future. Schalke’s late surge for promotion this season was mirrored in the game Saturday which secured its return to the Bundesliga. Schalke was down 2-0 at halftime against promotion rival St. Pauli but recovered to win 3-2. “I have huge respect for this group, how they stepped up. Incredible,” said coach Mike Büskens, himself a Schalke great for winning the UEFA Cup as a player in 1997. “You’re dumped...

No escaping ‘best in the world’ Alcaraz is heir to idol Nadal | Tennis News – Times of India

PARIS: Few players have rivalled Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic over the past two decades, but Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz threatens to upend tennis's established order after a dizzying rise to stardom. Alcaraz, who only turned 19 last Thursday, became the first player to beat Nadal and Djokovic on clay at the same tournament on his way to a second Masters 1000 title in Madrid. Seemingly preordained for greatness, Alcaraz has so far delivered on the promise, described by beaten finalist Alexander Zverev as "right now the best player in the world". He became the youngest US Open quarter-finalist of the Open era last September, then won his first Masters crown in Miami in early April. Only Nadal has won two such titles at a younger age. "I would say this is the best we...

Italian Open: Halep, Azarenka move into second round | Tennis News – Times of India

Former world number ones Simona Halep and Victoria Azarenka advanced to the second round of the Italian Open in Rome while four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to an ankle injury. Halep, champion in Rome in 2020, beat France's Alize Cornet 6-4 6-4, exacting revenge for her fourth round loss at the Australian Open in January. In a match that had 10 break points converted by the two players, Halep led 5-1 in both sets before Cornet fought back on both occasions before the Romanian got the job done, sealing progress with a forehand winner on Cornet's serve. Azarenka met a familiar foe in Swiss Viktorija Golubic, who she beat at the same stage of the Madrid Open late last month. Although the match in Madrid was a closer contest, this time ...

Suryakumar Yadav ruled out of IPL 2022

Mumbai Indians batter Suryakumar Yadav was ruled out of IPL 2022 owing to a left forearm muscle injury, an IPL press release confirmed on Monday. Yadav sustained the injury during the team’s fixture against Gujarat Titans on May 6. He played 8 matches this season for the Mumbai Indians scoring 303 runs at an average of 43.29 that included 3 half centuries. This effectively rules him out of Monday’s encounter against the Kolkata Knight Riders who resemble a sinking ship ahead of a rather inconsequential match against bottom-placed Mumbai Indians who, even if already out of reckoning, will have their tails up.

Liverpool’s Juergen Klopp believes EPL title race is still not over | Football News – Times of India

Liverpool may be three points behind league leaders Manchester City in the Premier League with three games to go but manager Juergen Klopp said on Monday he does not believe the title race is done and dusted. A 1-1 home draw against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend set Liverpool back after City beat Newcastle United and Klopp was asked if he reportedly told his players the title race was over.

Naomi Osaka pulls out of Italian Open with injury | Tennis News – Times of India

ROME: Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from the Italian Open in Rome to rest an Achilles injury ahead of the French Open, the WTA said on Monday. The four-time Grand Slam champion suffered the injury in her opening match in Madrid earlier this month, before struggling in a second-round loss to Sara Sorribes Tormo.
