Tokyo Novak Djokovic stepped up a gear at the Jap

By

first_imgTokyo: Novak Djokovic stepped up a gear at the Japan Open Wednesday, fending off a tough challenge from Japanese wild card Go Soeda 6-3, 7-5 to advance to the quarter final. The world number one said he had no problems with the injured shoulder which forced him out of the US Open as he looked to face either French fifth-seed Lucas Pouille or Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka at the Ariake Colosseum, a venue for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Djokovic was cruising to a victory until late in the second set when the 35-year-old Japanese player put on a tenacious fight while the Serb began missing many of his first serves, reducing his lead to 5-4 before Soeda made it 5-5.

Probably I played even on a higher level than the first round. So the game is going to the right direction for sure,” he said.

Their gruelling battle, the first match of the day, lasted over two hours in blazing heat, as Goffin clung on to the match to take the second set that ended with a dramatic tie-break. After that, Carreno Busta could not find much left in himself and gave up the third set. “It was a great fight. Such a tough opponent,” said Goffin, who will now face Denis Shapovalov of Canada. “In the end, I am happy to go to the second round,” Goffin said.

Moscow Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednes

By

first_imgMoscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday defended Donald Trump over accusations the US leader pressured Kiev to dig up dirt on a rival, saying there was “nothing compromising” in transcripts of the call. “I see nothing compromising in the conversation between Trump and (Ukrainian leader Volodymyr) Zelensky,” Putin said of the phone call that has sparked an impeachment probe in the US. “President Trump turned to a colleague with a request to investigate possible corruption relating to members of the former administration,” the Russian leader said at an energy forum in Moscow.

Now it’s Ukraine,” Putin added. Putin also took aim at the Mueller Report, which concluded that Russia tried to swing the 2016 election in the Republican’s favour but did not establish evidence of collusion between the Trump camp and Moscow. “He didn’t find any evidence of us colluding with Trump in the past, but said there was a risk we might do so in the future… It would be funny if it weren’t so sad,” said Putin. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsAsked if Russia would try to meddle in the US 2020 presidential election, Putin joked: “I’ll let you into a secret — yes! We absolutely will… Just don’t tell anybody.” The White House last week released a transcript of a call this summer between Trump and a recently elected Zelensky. It showed that Trump asked Zelensky to probe Democratic rival Joe Biden, and the Democrats are looking into whether Trump used a delayed 400 million (365.8 million euros) aid package as leverage. Ukraine is fighting an ongoing war in its east against Russia-backed separatists, which broke out after Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.last_img read more

The decision was taken in the AIFF’s Executive Committee meeting. The federation said that the recommendation has been made in the light of the Master Rights Agreement signed between the AIFF and IMG-Reliance in 2010 among other factors like more substantial growth in TV viewership and in stadia audience vis a vis the I-League and “the ISL clubs complying with the entire AFC Club licensing criteria, including strong grassroots and Youth Development Programmes which have also been certified by the AFC.” Earlier, Patel assured the I-League clubs that their future is secure and that he will approach the Asian Football Confederation to allow the I-League to co-exist with the ISL as India’s top flight league for the next two to three years. The clubs accepted Patel’s proposal while putting forth their own version of a roadmap for Indian football in which a unified league structure consisting of I-League and ISL clubs was proposed with promotion and relegation.last_img read more

Islamabad A highlevel Taliban delegation on Frid

The 12-member delegation of Taliban Political Commission (TPC), which arrived here on Wednesday for their first such visit, was lead by its head Mulla Abdul Ghani Baradar during the meeting. “The delegation called on Prime Minister Khan and discussed bilateral and regional situation, especially the peace process in Afghanistan,” a government official told PTI.

Khan also assured that Islamabad would continue its efforts for peace in Afghanistan, the Geo News reported. Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa was also present in the meeting, the BBC reported. The meeting comes a day after the delegation met country’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who urged the Taliban to grasp the opportunity and resume talks with the US for an early and peaceful resolution of the conflict in Afghanistan. Qureshi noted that the existing, broad regional and international consensus for achieving peace in Afghanistan at the earliest provided an unprecedented opportunity that must not be lost. The US and the Taliban had agreed on draft peace plan, but the process was suspend by President Trump following killing of an American soldier in Kabul last month in a suicide attack claimed by the Taliban. Trump stunned the world when he suddenly declared that the Afghan peace talks with the Taliban were “dead”. He cancelled a secret meeting with the Taliban and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David near Washington after the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in Kabul, in which an American soldier was among the dead.last_img read more
