If anything, On Friday,time picked a fine English summer day to taunt the greatest man to ever play tennis teasing him into a painful 3-6 7-6 6-4 5-7 3-6 defeat at the hands of Milos Raonic Federer is only a month shy of his 35th birthday He has not just scaled the highest mountains in tennis; the Swiss has crafted new peaks for others to gape in awe and disbelief Federer is a genius whocould imagine and create an alternative universe far better than the original Time though has begun to chip away at his great edifice There were two visceral moments in that match against Raonic that underlined Federer’s existential challenges At 5-6 serving to force the fourth set into a tiebreaker Federer raced to three game points at 40-0 It was the Federer we knew a man in command of the court and everything inside it Thousands of devoted Federer fans on centre court were plunged into a collective sense of disbelief when the great maestro from Basel still in command at 40-15 gifted Raonic a pair of double faults It was a strange lapse of concentration that will nibble at Federer’s well-architected brain for the rest of his life Roger Federer AFP “Something went wrong I don’t know what can’t believe it” said Federer “Unexplainable for me I’m very sad about that and angry” The sudden lapse demolished Federer ravaging a psyche that was trained to master the craft and create magic The moorings had given away ravaged by the steady pounding of time “Opportunities were all around in the fourth set” added a rueful Federer “I think I pushed him on his service games to get the break but I couldn’t get the job done” Federer found himself serving from behind again in the final set And watching him wilt in the fourth game was as painful an experience as you could imagine for his myriad fans just as it wouldhave been for Federer The man used to dancing around the tennis court like a ballerino missed a step and fell over into a belly flop that was as unlike Federer as one might imagine Those double faults had ravaged the mind and the body was just following the trail of destruction in the maze of his mind It was a transformation that was as painful to watch as it may have been for Federer to endure One could imagine the Swiss feeling like an empty shell his soul snatched from him in the moments he needed it the most The fifth set just turned out to be a procession for Raonic to complete the conquest The press conference that followed wasn’t an easy one for Federer “Just don’t remind me of everything” begged the Swiss at the very start As usual now he also had to deal with the R question “And yes I hope to be back on Centre Court to be very clear for you” assured Federer with a wry smile So what do we expect of Federer as he marches forward resolutely into the twilight of an historic tennis career An 8th Wimbledon title and an 18th major title seemed within grasp after that epic victory over Marin Cilic But then a remorseless Raonic snatched Federer’s fond hope from right under the maestro’s feet It is interesting to hear Federer express himself in these moments of anguish caused by bitter defeat The Swiss has to often labour harder than on the court to explain his lingering love for the sport It must indeed be a colossal effort to just stay in shape and put in the hard miles into recovery and rejuvenation It is no mean feat to still remain in the top echelons of tennis deep into his 30s "It’s a dream to win my eighth title here but it’s not the only reason why I play tennis" explained Federer "I know Wimbledon is important but it’s not everything I have played 10 sets [against Cilic and Raonic] It’s very encouraging for the season I was insecure coming into Wimbledon" Federer fans were a spoilt generation drunk and high on the intoxicating beauty of his game He conquered the world and collected bagfuls of titles with a disarming smile and a game that felt more artsy than the many works inside the Louvre Over the past few years though ageing has made the Swiss far more vulnerable Federer seems to have adjusted far better to his new normal than have his legions of fans It is time they did too – just relish the aesthetic moments of which there are still many instead of seeking the pleasure of a perfectly orchestrated composition Mind you Federer is no stranger to stinging painful defeat The epic loss to Nadal in that immortal final of the 2008 Wimbledon will linger forever The loss against Juan Martin Del Potro in the 2009 US Open also came after the Swiss legend was just two points from another grand slam title Those mind numbing losses to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals of the US Open in 2010 and 2011 bore uncanny resemblance with the Serbian turning the tables with the scent of defeat right under his nostrils Another loss that stung Federer rather badly was the quarterfinal loss to Jo Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 Wimbledon Each of those matches were high stakes encounters that rudely interrupted Federer’s relentless collection of grand slam titles Federer recovered psychologically from those devastating defeats He proved that to us by winning a seventh Wimbledon in 2012 But even though he has played a consistently high level of tennis since then he has struggled to get over the line on many occasions The dominance of Djokovic and the emergence of a new generation are forcing Federer and his fans to adjust to the specter of constant defeat The silver lining though is Federer’s eagerness to experiment (as with SABR) and an undiminished desire to put his body through the intense rigour demanded of every professional athlete Clearly Federer is still deeply enamoured by tennis and passionate about his work We need to celebrate that heavenly connection without burdening our hearts with the weight of expectation Federer has earned the luxury of expression without having to labour too much about the result Bengaluru: India hockey captain PR Sreejesh says it is heartening to see healthy competition for spots in the national team between juniors and seniors With emphasis given to junior players in this new Olympic cycle the task is cut out for the senior members of the side While the seniors have a responsibility of mentoring the youngsters they will also need to push equally hard to keep their places in the squad Indian hockey team captain PR Sreejesh Image courtesy: Twitter/@TheHockeyIndia "It’s a fresh beginning and with so many youngsters coming into the core probables the juniors as well as seniors will really have to push for a spot in the national team" Sreejesh said at the national camp currently on at the Sports Authority of India centre "The juniors will need to get better and better in their skills and execution adapt well in the camp and prove themselves that they are worthy of that position and are ready to replace a senior player For a senior player he needs to match the fitness and speed the juniors bring to the table "While we know that juniors will be the future as we prepare for 2020 Tokyo Olympics they shouldn’t take it for granted that they will make it to the squad They need to earn it" the talismanic goalkeeper added The Indian colts which won the junior Men’s World Cup last year had a fabulous outing in 2016 and also showcased their potential in the 2017 Hockey India League But Sreejesh feels that the standard of game will be entirely different in the senior team "These six weeks (at the national camp) will be good exposure for them in terms of understanding the system we follow learn how we strategise plan and execute Though they have seen us train closely as the junior team and we were based in the same campus I believe being in the system is very different from watching us train" said Sreejesh Sreejesh also feels this is a great opportunity for the youngsters to learn from stalwarts like Sardar Singh and SV Sunil "Senior players like Sardar and Sunil showcase great work ethics and there’s a lot the juniors can learn from them As seniors we also have an added responsibility of mentoring the juniors and making sure they stay on track towards achieving the goals the team has set" he said Speaking about the new support staff Sreejesh said the inclusion of two former India players into the fold is a great motivating factor for the team "Arjun (Halappa) was an attacking centre forward and midfielder while Jugraj Singh was a very good defender and dragflick expert They understand the passion the culture of the team and it’s a great advantage to have them as support staff I have worked with Hans Streeder (Analytical Coach) earlier in HIL and he is a good strategist "He was also there at the Junior World Cup as a part of the Dutch team and he has watched most of our players very closely and understands where they need improvement" he said The selection trials for the senior team will be held in the following weeks to pick the final squad for the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup to be held in Ipoh Malaysia starting April 29 "I feel that will be a great tournament to see where the juniors stand in terms of temperament and performance" Sreejesh concluded New Delhi: It’s a sport which is synonymous with power for most but Rio Olympics bronze-medallist wrestler Sakshi Malik says her achievements on the mat are not just because of her brawn but also her brain The 24-year-old from Haryana became the toast of the nation after winning a historic bronze "Coach says my forte is power but I think I won because of my technique I did not win because of my power but because of my technique" Sakshi told PTI after being felicitated by Air India which announced a free business class travel for her India’s Sakshi Malik celebrates after winning bronze inWomen’s 58kg freestyle PTI "Indians (usually) win because of their power other countries are more aggressive in the first three mins but Indian perform well throughout the six mins" she added Recalling her experience at the Rio Games Sakshi said it was a tense affair "The Rio experience was very tense I had to lose weight daily We were there for 15 days didn’t know what will happen since entire India will be watching I was 100% sure that the Russian wrestler will reach the finals and I knew that whatever happens I will get a medal" she said "After winning got a chance to see the village went to the mall which was nice" she added Sakshi also said that the significance of the moment did not register until she reached back home "It took a lot of time for me to realize what had happened When I came back to the airport in Delhi it was then that I realised that I have done good work" The Rohtak girl spoke about her preparation for each competition restrictions she keeps on herself "We practice in several areas like power training weight training speed training and mat work But practice for all tournaments is the same but the focus differs from opponent to opponent There are no restriction from my family’s side but yes I have to keep control on diet as you have to shed 4-5-kilos before every competition" she added Sakshi said everything else is secondary — whether it’s marriage or being appointed as Wrestling Director of Rohtak University "I have left marriage for the family members to think about Right now my aim is the Asian Games and the Commonwealth Games Till I wrestle I won’t be doing anything (on being appointed Wrestling Director of Rohtak University)" "When you see good players like Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt that is motivation enough How they train what lifestyle they maintain They have performed so well at such high level for India that motivates me "I will start working when I get away from wrestling I’m also in Railway they don’t ask me to do anything just focus on the game and my paycheck arrives every month" she added For Sakshi women power has not started with this Olympics but has been in the rise for the past couple of years "When I had started there were only 4-5 girls but after the performance of the girls winning a lot of medals Delhi CWG Asian Games a lot of girls are being motivated to join wrestling sometimes there is no place to practice" Talking about the Air India gesture she said"I want to thank every one I feel very special that everyone wants to meet me and give so much love I would like to thank Air India for giving me free travel as I love flying"
