semi-final clash on Saturday Roger Federer defeated Novak Djokovic in the round-robin stage AFP Federer then defeated Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka 7-5 6-3 to book his place in the final Sunday is a repeat of last year’s final which Djokovic won by a walkover after Federer withdrew with an injury something he has rarely done in his career "I don’t feel unbeatable but it does definitely feel great when I’m playing the way I played" Djokovic said after his dazzling display against Nadal "I’ve lost against Roger three times this year When he’s on it’s hard to play him" said the Serb who has also beaten Federer four times in 2015 all in finals "We always play matches with a lot of tension There is a lot at stake I know I have to be on top in order to win against him Hopefully I’ll be able to

decision to not send a team to represent India at the 16th Asian Games in GuangzhouChinaone needs to understand that there is a lot more than what meets the eyebeyond idealistic patriotism (or the lack thereof) and a dismissive money trumps country conclusion There are reasons why it would actually make sense for the BCCI to not send its cricket teams Purely from an on-field perspectivethere is little to gain for the Indian teameven if it wins the inaugural medal for its countrywhich weve just seen isin and of itselfclearly far from a given After allthe big kahuna would be expected to win the Asian Gamesespecially since India has been vociferous in its support of cricket becoming an Olympic sport But cricket is probably not going to be included as an Olympic sportat least for a few decades; that means the Indian teams participation at Guangzhoueven as a public relations exerciseor a lead by example initiativeis likely to have little effect on the decisions that the IOC will make regarding crickets inclusion in the games And thenof coursethere is the fearsome prospect of India not winningor worsecoming home empty-handed Sri LankaPakistanand even Bangladeshmay just spoil Indias party to the extent that the team could even come back bereft of any medals (and pride) if the luck of the draw is not with them That would be an unmitigated disaster There are other reasons as well It has been reported that the actual reason why the teams are not going is because of the WADA whereabouts clause debatewhich is yet to have been resolved With the cricketers not yet compliant with the latest drug-testing regulationsand NADA coming out and openly stating that BCCI should commit to the testing parameters to which most other sports have consentedparticipation in the Asian Games would take the ball out of the BCCIs and ICCs court Participation in international multi-discipline events such as the CWGOlympicsor the Asian Games would entail compliance with drug tests in the manner that the games governing council decidesand the agreed-to norms and regulations with WADA on an event- rather than team/ individual-basis These are non-negotiableand cannot be adjusted so as to ensure fairness and parity Thereforeif the cricketers were to subject themselves to WADAs policies at any of these eventsthey would implicitly be assenting to global drug testing norms as agreed to by most other sports and leagues something they clearly do not want Last but not leastwhen the BCCI says that it cannot terminate or cancel toursit may sound selfish and greedybut in real termsits the most logical argument that it could make Sports events and cricket tours arent one-off events where ad-hoc sponsors and broadcasters team up with local cricket boards on a hail-fellow-well-met basis Handshakes and goodwill are no longer enough to supersede contracts and actual damages/ losses suffered by the boardssponsorsinvestorsand other stakeholders in events Rights and benefits are decidedbudgeted and exercised years in advanceespecially for the Indian teamsand to break those contractual obligations can irreparably harm numerous stakeholdersand jeopardise future events Lets not forget that sports is a businessand while playing for ones country and nationalism is finethere needs to be a balance To ask the BCCI to breach its contracts for the Asian Games sounds a bit much at this juncturepatriotism aside A momentary lapse in on- and off-field success does not a catastrophe makeand anyone who feels that cricket is likely to witherfade awayand eventually be replacedjust needs to ask the casual Indian sports fan where Indian football and basketball fall in the hierarchy of popular Indian sports Thereforedespite the public relations nightmare that the BCCI is likely to encounterthis decision is likely a prudent one With all to lose and nothing to gainthe BCCI may just have more foresight than it is being credited with Nowit just needs to ensure that its prescience doesnt get mistaken for hypermetropia And for thatIndian cricket needs to resurrect its imageits abilityand this must translate into pristine performances both on and off the field Ceteris paribusof course India should have participated at the Asian Games But other things are not equaland the playing field is littered with mines and dotted with bumps Thereforeits better in the long run for cricket and the BCCI to lay low for a whileand plan the return to the limelight both methodically and cautiously The writer is a Delhi-based sports attorney Views are personal [email protected] For

places below them in the FIFA rankings in their 2018 football World Cup qualifying group match on June 16 Sunil Chhetri managed a consolation goal in the last minute of the game after Brandon McDonald put the hosts ahead in the 38th minute and Travis Nicklaw doubled the advantage in the 62nd minute at the GFA National Training Center File Photo of Sunil Chhetri Reuters This was only their second World Cup qualifying win the result coming less than a week after their upset 1-0 verdict over Turkmenistan in Group D Guam went ahead after 38 minutes when McDonald headed in Ryan Guy’s long throw-in and Nicklaw extended the lead 24 minutes later when he received a long pass from his elder brother Shawn and fired home on the turn Ace India striker Chhetri who was leading the side today got his name on the score sheet one more time for the national side but his effort in the dying moment was not enough as Guam moved to the top of Group D with six points from two games While Guam recorded their second win as many games in their qualifying campaign 141-ranked India suffered their second straight defeat the first being the 1-2 defeat to Oman at home last week The latest reverse puts India’s chances of a third-placed finish in the 2018 World Cup qualifying in jeopardy which in turn could affect the country’s prospect of earning a direct entry into the 2019 Asian Cup With Oman who beat India 2-1 last week not in action today and Iran playing their first group game in Turkmenistan Guam are assured of remaining at the top of their group in the second round of Asian qualifying

of Ian Mariano Turning out against a side that included a couple of players with MLS experience in the US India skipper Chhetri had a personal milestone to savour reaching his 50th international goal by heading in a cross from the right Former captain Bhaichung Bhutia stays at the second spot with 42 goals in 107 matches while IM Vijayan has 40 from 79 games This was Chhetri’s 87th match The feat however came for a losing cause Even double substitutions by Constantine in the 46th minute and the other in the 65th minute couldn’t change the fortunes The second half saw Constantine make two changes as Sehnaj Singh was replaced by Dhanpal Ganesh while Cavin Lobo was brought in place of Eugeneson Apart from Chhetri’s header substitute Jeje Lalpakhlua’s free header in the 88th minute which went straight to rival goalkeeper Douglas Herrick was another of India’s best chance The match started on a bad note for India as Eugeneson Lyngdoh was booked for a silly foul on Jason Cunliffe the Guamanian skipper as early as the seventh minute It was the hosts who were enjoying more ball possession and seemed to be on the lookout for goals With the hosts opting to attack the warning signs were ominous for the Indian team "We are disappointed Today the difference was very much visible between a group of players who have the best football education and the rest 75 percent of the players who represented Guam have been born and brought up in the US and that made a huge difference" Constantine said at the post-match press conference Constantine’s counterpart Gary White sounded happy with the six points on board "From the very outset we knew that this would be a difficult place for anybody to come It was a tough and competitive game and it feels nice to be at the top of the Group
