French Open 2022: Rafael Nadal targets Casper Ruud’s backhand with forehand crosscourt to seize control in the final

In just under an hour and a half, Rafael Nadal produced a clay-court masterclass to defeat debutant finalist Casper Ruud in straight sets to lift his record-extending 22nd Grand Slam and 14th French Open title. The Spaniard’s dominant display was yet another showing of his trademark mixture of smart tactics and ruthless shot-making. Ruud’s backhand fails to cope Coping with Nadal’s forehand anywhere is a difficult task, let alone on the red dirt at Roland Garros. The shot goes into the opposing right-hander’s backhand corner with so much spin and bounce that it makes the ball feel like a rock on the racquet. Ultimately, it proved to be one that Ruud was not able to negotiate with much success. Un peu plus dans la légende. Best of Express PremiumPremiumPremiumPremiumPremium 👑 https://t....

Joe Root puts captaincy cares behind him as he joins ‘10,000 club’ | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Joe Root underlined the talent that had long seemed obvious from early in his career when he became just the second England batsman to score 10,000 Test runs during a match-winning hundred against New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday. The 31-year-old Yorkshireman's typically composed 115 not out took England, who had been faltering at 69 for four, to a target of 277 and a five-wicket victory over the World Test champions with more than a day to spare. Root radiated serenity at the crease, keeping the scoreboard ticking over against a quality attack without resorting to extravagant strokes during a 170-ball innings that spanned nearly five-and-a-half hours. No wonder Ben Stokes, in his first match since succeeding Root as England captain said afterwards of his close friend: "'Mr Depen...

Joe Root reveals how his England captaincy became ‘unhealthy’ | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Joe Root said his time as England captain had ended in an "unhealthy relationship" after marking his return to the ranks with a match-winning hundred against New Zealand at Lord's. Root led England in a record 64 Tests spanning five years before resigning as skipper in April following a run of just one win in 17 Tests. The stresses and strains of leading England during the coronavirus pandemic, allied to a run of poor results including a 4-0 Ashes drubbing in Australia and a 1-0 series loss in the Caribbean, persuaded Root he should step down, with vice-captain Ben Stokes, a close friend, taking over the reins. Root, however, remains one of the world's leading batsmen and his serene 115 not out on Sunday meant the Stokes era began with a five-wicket win over New Zealand as Engla...

Stokes hails ‘Mr Dependable’ Root after winning start to England reign | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Joe Root was hailed as England's "Mr Dependable" by new captain Ben Stokes after his predecessor's unbeaten century helped launch the all-rounder's reign with a five-wicket win over New Zealand in the first Test at Lord's on Sunday. Root made 115 not out as England chased down a target of 277 with wicketkeeper Ben Foakes (32 not out) providing excellent support in an unbroken partnership of 120. Victory, achieved with more than a day to spare, saw England to just their second win in 18 Tests. When Root completed his 26th century at this level he became the only player to have scored 10,000 runs within ten years of his Test debut. The Yorkshireman was also only the second Englishman to do so and the joint-youngest from any country to achieve the feat, equalling retired former Eng...

Shahbaz Ahmed: Bengal’s crisis man from Haryana who has made a mark in IPL too
