Cilic pulls out of Wimbledon after testing positive for COVID-19

Former finalist Marin Cilic has pulled out of Wimbledon after testing positive for COVID-19, the Croatian said on Monday. The 33-year-old Cilic, who won the U.S. Open in 2014, reached the final of the grasscourt Grand Slam five years ago when he lost to Roger Federer. “Hey guys, I am sad to share that I tested positive for COVID,” he said on his Instagram account, adding that he was “heartbroken” to see his season on grass end due to illness. “I have been self-isolating and was hopeful I would be ready but unfortunately I am still feeling unwell and unable to compete at my best.” Cilic, who had been seeded 14th, came to Wimbledon in strong form, having reached the semi-finals at the French Open and also making the last four of the ATP 500 tournament on grass at Queen’s this month.

Alcaraz survives five-set whirlwind to reach Wimbledon second round

It might not have been the workout Carlos Alcaraz was hoping for as he nursed a sore elbow but the Spaniard showed why he is considered to be the next big thing in tennis as he toppled Jan-Lennard Struff 4-6 7-5 4-6 7-6(3) 6-4 in the Wimbledon first round on Monday. The 19-year-old has enjoyed an incredible season on clay and hardcourts — winning titles in Rio, Miami, Barcelona and Madrid — and he proved he has the skills and mental belief to succeed on the sport’s slickest surface. Despite still being a grasscourt novice, fifth seed Alcaraz did not let German Struff’s 218kph hurtling serves or the disappointment of losing two of the opening three sets faze him.

Emma Raducanu triumphs on Centre Court debut

Britain’s teenage U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu lived up to her star billing on her first appearance on Wimbledon’s Centre Court by beating in-form Belgian Alison van Uytvanck 6-4 6-4 in the first round on Monday. A year ago Raducanu reached the fourth round as an unknown wildcard before going on to win the U.S. Open against impossible odds, but this time the 10th seed carried the hopes of a nation who have not seen a home women’s champion since Virginia Wade in 1977. Despite an injury-ravaged build-up that left her participation in doubt until a few days ago, Raducanu took the first set against the dangerous Belgian who had warmed up with two second-tier tournament victories on grass.

LONDON: Kent wicket-keeper Sam Billings has been added to the England Men's Test squad for the rearranged fifth Test versus India starting on Friday at Edgbaston.

How the Tokyo Olympics loss made the table tennis star Sathiyan overhaul his game

So stung was G Sathiyan by his second-round exit at the Tokyo Olympics that he went into a deep introspection mode, watching the videos of his defeat ‘endless times’ with his coach Subramaniam Raman. “Maybe, the occasion and the nerves got to me,” India’s top-ranked men’s singles table tennis player says. “I’ve only learnt lessons from it.” Almost a year on, Sathiyan is a changed player. “We’re going into a 2.0 version of Sathiyan,” he declares. Sathiyan 2.0, he says, is a culmination of a myriad of small changes, including a more aggressive mindset and curbing his natural conservative instincts. But in essence, the player who never tired of indulging in a long rally now targets a quick end to the point, even if it means doing something risky and audacious. The outcome is visible. Last ...

Wimbledon player comes to aid of fainting ballboy with candy

Quick reactions are a hallmark of being a professional tennis player, and Jodie Burrage showed the Wimbledon crowd she could respond to adversity quickly. The British player noticed a ballboy who was feeling faint on the sidelines during her match on Monday, then rushed over to make sure he was OK. She first gave him a sports drink, then some nutritional gel before a spectator handed over a bag of candy. “Just tried to get him some sugar, gave him a Gatorade and a gel. The gel is not the nicest thing, so they managed to find some Percy Pigs somewhere along the line in the crowd, which he got down and then started to feel better,” Burrage said. “Hopefully he’s feeling better now.” The match was stopped for about 10 minutes until the boy was helped off court.Unfortunately for the 23-year...

Novak Djokovic drops set on way into Wimbledon second round | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Top seed Novak Djokovic overcame a dogged challenge from 81st-ranked Korean Kwon Soon-woo and his own grasscourt rustiness to reach the Wimbledon second round with a 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4 victory on Monday. The defending champion, bidding for his fourth Wimbledon title in a row, looked out-of-sorts at times against Kwon, who brought a lively mixture of tennis, from booming forehands to delicate drop-shots, onto Centre Court. The 24-year-old Korean broke Djokovic's serve in the fourth game of the second set and went on to win it with a drop-shot and a big serve. But the 35-year-old Serb, aiming to win a 21st Grand Slam title, recovered enough of his trademark consistency to see off the challenge.

England slight favourites against India, feels Graeme Swann | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: England will be playing India on the back of the three-Test series against New Zealand and former off-spinner Graeme Swann believes it would make the hosts slight favourites going into the rescheduled fifth Test starting in Birmingham on Friday. England on Monday completed a 3-0 series whitewash against New Zealand after wining the third and final Test by seven wickets. "England are in a very good position and I would say they are slight favourites because of that series (against New Zealand)," Swann said in a virtual interaction, facilitated by Sony Sports, official broadcasters of India-England series. "And the fact that India just had one (warm-up) game in England, so they are coming in cold (for) the Test match, which is a bit of disadvantage. They (England) have got the thr...

With England clean sweeping the series over New Zealand on Monday, Sam Billings, who was filling in as stand-in wicketkeeper for Covid-infected Ben Foakes, took a rather fortuitous catch to dismiss Kiwi batter Neil Wagner on Sunday. Wagner tried to defend Jack Leach’s delivery in the 102nd over of the match and the ball caught the outside edge. Billings behind the stumps could not position his hands in time to grab the ball. As the ball was dropping down, he closed his knees together and the ball stuck between his thighs.

We’re on the right track: Ramesh Powar | Cricket News – Times of India

DAMBULLA: India's batting might have come a cropper in the final women's T20I against Sri Lanka but chief coach Ramesh Powar said they are on the "right track" ahead of next month's Commonwealth Games, where cricket will make its debut. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side stuttered in the middle overs to manage just 138 for five to lose the final T20I against Sri Lanka by seven wickets. But overall, India claimed a 2-1 win in the three-match series, which is seen as the build-up to the Birmingham multi-sport event. "We touched upon all the bases. Honestly, the wickets were slow, so we were not expecting too many high-scoring games, but the way Harman, Shafali, Jemimah and Smriti batted, we are on the right track as far as batting is concerned," Powar said at the press conference.
