Boe basks in reflected glory after guiding Indian doubles pair

Mathias Boe had been going through withdrawal symptoms. His chosen poison turned ailment: top-grade badminton. The former Thomas Cup winner and Olympic silver medallist, who retired two seasons ago, had not really come to grips with being away from the circuit. He immersed himself in his business, and his personal life. “But I missed winning like this at the top events. I’m happy India gave me the chance to experience this once again,” said India’s doubles coach, who helped the newly-minted Thomas Cup champions pull off a sensational 3-0 win against all-time leaders Indonesia in the final. Boe has always shared a great equation with Chirag Shetty. And was guiding him along with video analysis online at the All England even when he wasn’t formally the India coach. India’s efforts to bri...

Gopichand: ‘This is the real World Cup…proud of team’

THE MOST heartening aspect of India’s Thomas Cup team today was watching Chirag Shetty-Satwiksairaj Rankireddy beat Mohammad Ahsan-Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. All the previous times that our boys have faced Kevin Sanjaya, they have lost 11-0. It was as individuals. Today, they had Team India backing their efforts, planning and rooting for them. It makes a difference, and this was a first where India played as a unit. Earlier, if Saina was playing, Sindhu wouldn’t be there. And if Sindhu played, Saina wasn’t around. If the doubles team played, the singles players weren’t really invested. This was truly Team India’s victory and I was so happy that Satwik-Chirag gave it back to the Indonesians. In my mind, I knew this was possible when you do the calculations. But whether it will actually be...

Heat puts health at risk in Delhi state athletics meet

The Delhi state meet last week was one of the most gruelling athletics events of this season. It wasn’t the level of competition that drained the athletes though but the unforgiving heatwave. Temperatures have been rising unabatedly in the Capital with the mercury soaring beyond 45 degrees at the measuring station closest to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Sunday.Athletes, coaches and officials could be seen with towels wrapped around their heads as they carried on with the show. But the worn-out practice area, open on all sides, unlike the main stadium, provided no respite. The worst-affected were, unsurprisingly, the athletes who not only had to compete in such extreme weather but also warm up and cool down. Dr Rajesh Prasad, an orthopaedic and sports science specialist, says competing in...

“Every player stepped up when it mattered”: Srikanth

An unheralded Indian men’s team notched up a dominating 3-0 win over 14-time champions Indonesia to lift the Thomas Cup for the first time with Srikanth playing a crucial role as he stayed unbeaten in the tournament. “Individual events are always different to team events and we hardly get to play team events and Thomas Cup finals are the biggest team events.

Chelsea see off Man City to win women’s FA Cup | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Chelsea completed a Women's Super League and FA Cup double as Sam Kerr struck twice to see off Manchester City 3-2 in a thrilling final at Wembley after extra time. Emma Hayes' side exacted revenge for defeat to City in the League Cup final earlier this season, but were pushed all the way despite taking the lead three times. The English champions took the lead when Kerr nodded Millie Bright's cross at the back post, but City equalised through Lauren Hemp just before the break. A long-range effort from Erin Cuthbert restored Chelsea's lead early in the second half. However, there was late drama when Hayley Raso brought City level again in the final minute. Kerr has also claimed the personal accolades as player of the year for an exceptional season and it was fitting the WSL's top...

Djokovic beats Tsitsipas to claim sixth Italian Open title | Tennis News – Times of India

ROME: Novak Djokovic won his sixth Italian Open title on Sunday after a straight-sets victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-0, 7-6 (7/5) in Rome. World number one Djokovic saw off Monte Carlo Masters champion Tsitsipas to claim the last major tournament before Roland Garros gets underway later this month. The 34-year-old won his first tournament of the season and confirmed his return to form after an opening few months of the season dominated by Covid-19 vaccination controversy. Sunday's clash was a rematch of the pair's final at last year's French Open final but had little of the drama of that five-set thriller eventually won by the Serb in Paris. Djokovic had already ensured he will be world number one for a record-extending 370th week and claimed his 1,000th career victory, against Caspe...

Thomas Cup: 2022 can be Indian badminton’s equivalent of cricket’s 1983, says Vimal Kumar | Badminton News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Vimal Kumar has seen Indian badminton travel through valleys and peaks. From Pullela Gopichand winning the All England to Saina Nehwal becoming world No.1 and PV Sindhu being crowned world champion, Vimal has witnessed it from the vantage point of a player, coach and manager. But when India slammed all the comeback doors on Indonesia in the Thomas Cup final on Sunday to be crowned champions, he said, "This is the best achievement of Indian badminton." Thomas Cup win: Wish Team IndiaAfter Malaysia in the quarterfinals and Denmark in the semis, India completed a hat-trick of giant-kills by stunning defending champions Indonesia 3-0. It was in a way reminiscent of India beating the mighty West Indies twice at the 1983 World Cup, including in the final, to win the trophy. Vimal d...

Sri Lanka reaches 258-4 vs Bangladesh on day 1 of 1st Test

Angelo Mathews hit his 12th century as Sri Lanka made steady progress on day one of the opening Test against Bangladesh, reaching 258-4 on Sunday. At stumps, Mathews was batting on 114 with Dinesh Chandimal on 34. Kusal Mendis scored 54 and accompanied Mathews in a 92-run partnership in a third-wicket stand that set the pace for the match. Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne won the toss and opted to bat first on a pitch that appeared to be flat. But Karunaratne himself struggled against Bangladesh offspinner Nayeem Hasan, who returned figures of 2-71 after playing his first test since February last year. Nayeem eventually had the tourists’ skipper out leg-before for nine with a quicker delivery to leave Sri Lanka wobbling at 23-1. But Oshada Fernando found the boundaries at regular in...

Batting first was not a good idea: MS Dhoni | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni admitted that opting to bat first in their IPL match against table toppers Gujarat Titans was not a good idea as his side lost by seven wickets on Sunday. Already out of contention for a play-off berth, CSK suffered their ninth loss of the season to remain rooted in ninth place in the standings. "Batting first wasn't a very good idea. It was tough to hit the faster bowlers in the first half, spinners-wise it was similar," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation. CSK posted 133 for 5 with opener Ruturaj Gaikwad top-scoring with a 49-ball 53. GT chased down the target with five balls to spare. "Sai bowled well. We could have pushed Shivam up but would have beaten the purpose of having Jaggi in the side. Had it been earlier in the ...

Kidambi Srikanth: Home-sick boy who took up badminton for ‘timepass’ is India’s undefeated Thomas Cup hero

Sport boasts of glorious tales of overcoming adversity: economic and social hardships, physical impediments, parental opposition, geography and gender. Kidambi Srikanth has not necessarily encountered those. All he dreads is travel — a prerequisite for international sport. Everyone close to him — his parents, brother Nandagopal, coach P Gopichand and physio Kiran Challagunda — knows that once he fetches up on court in any part of the world, he is capable of staking claim to the title. Opponents and rival coaches remain wary of him hitting a purple patch, shredding reputations of Olympic and World Championship-proportions. Like late last year when he won the silver at the World Championship or this magical week at Bangkok, where it was his straight set win over Indonesian Jonatan Christi...
