Reuters) Top News When Venus Williams pushed one last forehand long to lose in the first round for the first time in her record five Olympic singles tournaments her opponent celebrated as if having claimed a gold medal dropping down on the green hard court to plant a kiss on the white five-ring logo This was clearly a very big deal to Kirsten Flipkens a Belgian ranked 62nd and only once as far as the semifinals at a Grand Slam event Just two points away from winning on four occasions while portions of the crowd turned hostile toward her the 36-year-old Williams faded as Saturday night’s match stretched past 3 hours and she was stunned 4-6 6-3 7-6 (5) by Flipkens on Day 1 of tennis at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics Afterward Williams did not speak to reporters Instead US women’s tennis coach Mary Joe Fernandez did saying that Williams was sick before arriving in Brazil Fernandez added that Williams had cramping dehydration and an upset stomach after her loss but still hoped to play doubles Sunday with younger sister Serena “I would be highly surprised if she didn’t play because this has been her goal for the last four years _ to come back to the Olympics” Fernandez said “She wants to win a medal so badly in anything Knowing Venus she will be out there no matter how badly she’s feeling” Williams owns four gold medals: one in singles and three in doubles She owns 21 Grand Slam titles: seven in singles 14 in doubles But she labored at times Saturday and even showed frustration by shouting “Ridiculous” after dropping one point With US Secretary of State John Kerry watching from a second-row seat behind a baseline the fifth-seeded Williams wasted a 4-1 lead in the final set and was broken while serving for the victory at 5-3 Williams was coming off a run to the semifinals at Wimbledon last month her best showing at a major since 2010 That also made her the oldest woman since 1994 to reach a Grand Slam tournament’s final four And it helped her attain her best ranking since revealing in 2011 that she had been diagnosed with Sjongren’s syndrome which can cause joint pain and fatigue “She’s used to not feeling 100 percent with her Sjongren’s and I think that’s why we saw her compete and fight to the end” Fernandez said “Credit to Flipkens who hung around and defended so well and made her play extra shots” Williams is the first tennis player to participate in singles at five Olympics and never had failed to reach at least the third round before claiming a gold at the 2000 Sydney Games She also won doubles golds in 2000 2008 and 2012 But against Flipkens who was making her Olympic debut Williams failed to find the right measure on most of her strokes and wound up with 13 fewer winners on courts that competitors agree are playing slowly Williams once possessor of one of the best serves in women’s tennis hit one ace five fewer than Flipkens “This is just one of the most epic matches in my life” Flipkens said The fans couldn’t seem to settle on which woman they wanted to win They greeted Williams far more loudly and warmly during prematch introductions although perhaps that was because of her far-greater name recognition Later though they roared when Williams made mistakes They clapped when she double-faulted They even gave her grief for the common and innocuous practice of catching a ball toss that wasn’t good When one group of spectators bellowed a “USA USA” chant late in the third set others responded by booing (Kerry had left by then) “They just enjoyed my game because I think I’m a little girl trying to do some special stuff to get a chance to beat a champion like that” Flipkens said Williams’ loss was part of a rough day for the United States tennis team Seven of the country’s eight singles players were in action and they went 2-5 Steve Johnson and Madison Keys won but there were losses for Jack Sock (who said afterward he had walking pneumonia then got into a Twitter spat with former pro player and coach Brad Gilbert) Denis Kudla Brian Baker and Sloane Stephens In all three of the top six women already are gone with No 4 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland and No 6 Roberta Vinci of Italy _ who

NewsWritten by Sriram Veera | Rajkot | Updated: November 14 2016 8:49 am Close Encounter Of A Rare Kind: India captain Virat Kohli dug his heels on day five to ensure that his team wouldn’t go to Vizag trailing in the five-match series (Source: PTI) Top News Five days are sometimes enough to turn a bad summer around or dent a good year Before Rajkot only one team could have wished for rank turners Now even England who faced spiteful tracks in Bangladesh and were forced to introspect could actually hit Vizag thinking ‘Our spinners bowled a bit better our batsmen tackled spin decently so bring on the sandpits’ India who have been trampling the opponents with spin for a year now were given a reality dose at Rajkot To see Virat Kohli indulging in time-delaying tactics in the end to ensure they didn’t have to bat out many overs was sensible yes but also would have upped the brownie points for England Of course it’s one thing to think you can handle sandpits and actually do it when faced with a crumbler with balls jumping and skidding from front of you where not only Ravichandran Ashwin but Ravindra Jadeja can be a real handful but England can take heart from their Rajkot performance and not go into the rest of the series with a feeling of dread Things might tilt back to status quo if Indians step up their game and especially if R Ashwin — who went wicketless for 57 overs between his second and third wicket — bounces back but at least we can now hope for a hard-fought series It won’t be a surprise if Ashwin rebounds in style for he has been in glorious form but Indian batting could do with more application The thing with this Indian batting is that their performance in the first Test can’t be casually dismissed and put down to complacency That would be a PR spin for there was enough iffiness and vulnerability in their batting here that suggested that this young team can be put under pressure if the bowling is decent enough It’s not as if the talent isn’t there but the muddled thinking when faced with scoreboard pressure and hardworking spinners can result in faulty shot-making Take Ajinkya Rahane for instance Runs across the globe and even in India as well but he can’t relax and try manufacturing shots In other words he can’t lull himself into an auto-pilot thinking he has a water-tight game and it’s enough to just walk to the middle and runs would flow It’s not to say he relaxed here — we aren’t psychologists — but an honest look-in would reveal his shot selections weren’t good In the first innings if he thought he was VVS Laxman and could whip left-arm breaks to the on side even if they landed full on a length he was mistaken In the second innings he got locked up in his position so much intent on trying to play an offspinner against the turn that he was stunned by a big-turning off break that ricocheted off his pads and fell on the stumps More application is the need of the hour Gambhir problem When the selectors picked Gautam Gambhir their logic was that he is a good player of spin and would be really handy in 13 Tests at home He sure is but he has to get past the English pacers first The left-handed batsman got in a tangle in the first innings with his front leg sliding so far across that there was no way back to safety In the second an old weakness re-surfaced: he attempted to dab between second slip and gully an almost involuntary arm-twitch with him but the ball not only reared from back of a length but was far too close to him for that shot to have worked When Wriddhiman Saha walks out at the fall of the fifth wicket and especially when Ashwin as good a batsman as he is has already come out one spot before the five-bowler theory demands some solidity from Saha You can see what he is trying to do — bat with great positivity try to counter-attack and seize the initiative The approach would have been perfect if there was an extra batsman and he comes in No 8 His current position in the order demands a greater stability and solidity He is at such an interesting phase as a Test player — it seems as if he almost wants to fast-track a rise in his stature The evolution can happen of course and can only happen if there is desire and intent but a bit more patience can’t hurt him In the first innings he was troubled a bit by Adil Rashid but kept going down the track looking for big hits In the second too he started off like that but ended up almost yorking himself and stabbing a return catch to the legspinner It was Ashwin who once again steadied the nerves with a responsible hand before he threw it away driving a full one straight to short cover You can’t over-analyse his dismissal especially after he showed admirable shot selection in the first innings when he pulled India out of a big hole He is an ambitious batsman who even back in 2012 during his maiden tour of Australia was confident that he can bat at No 6 Finally without Virat Kohli India could well have ended up losing the plot on the final evening His batting was as serene as one could be in this situation; his footwork was decisive stretching forward or pressing back to defend compactly Cook lets it stew However it’s the England captain Alastair Cook who would leave Rajkot with better memories And probably a bit braver May be not As he said: “Maybe a braver person would have set them 240 but I thought it was a fair declaration especially in the first game of the series” Not many who have followed England cricket for any length of time had any doubts that he would declare earlier Forget most of the English journalists who were absolutely sure he wouldn’t; the travelling fans were cocksure about it A man who does a lot of scoring back in England and travelling as a fan here had this to say at the start of the final day “Declare Nah not Cook If anything he might just bat the whole day” The Barmy Army too knew their man and not a whisper was about a declaration But all the travelling English fans would have been glad at one sight that unfolded on the final afternoon To see six of their players crowd the Indian batsmen in India must have warmed their hearts And these England spinners aren’t even as good as the lot that came in 2012 Zafar Ansari is very inexperienced Adil Rashid was known for his profligacy in line and length and Moeen Ali has been pushed up the batting order This is the imagery that English fans would take from this match Couple of players close on the leg side crouching like pickpockets at backward short-legs one glaring down from spitting distance in the off other mouthing something through the helmet at short-leg another peering from short cover and not to mention the wicketkeeper behind it must have been quite an exhilarating experience For all the latest
