A player should not go on court if he knows he will not finish, says Roger Federer

Roger Federer has appeared in the Gran Slame not panic in reducing matches to the best of three sets after the injured players were accused of accepting the money and runs Tuesday.

Federer reached the second round of Wimbledon when Alexandr Dolgopolov left his team after winning 6-3, 3-0 after only 43 minutes before the center court because of an ankle injury.

Earlier, rival Novak Djokovic booked his second round in just 40 minutes when Martin Klizan, suffering from a calf injury, retired at 6-3, 2-0.

This meant that the central track crowd saw only 83 minutes of action involving two men who won 10 Wimbledon titles between them. “I’m sorry for the crowd,” Federer said. “They’re here to see good tennis.”

Seven men have retired from the first round – Monday, Victor Troicki retired after only 20 minutes. This brief stay was beaten on Tuesday when compatriot Janko Tipsaervic left his game after 15 minutes.

The first round losers all receive £ 35,000 ($ 45,220). There is a rule in the main ATP Tour, but not in the Slams, an injured player can give up his seat to a “lucky loser” of the qualification, holding the prize money.

The idea behind the move is to preserve the integrity of the tournament and prevent amateurs from feeling defrauded. But Federer does not want to see Slams choose the best three-set format instead of the traditional best-of-five.

“The abandonment of his place”
Federer bid for an eighth Wimbledon title. “I hope this will not happen, but I think more players would finish their matches with clarity,” he said.

“A player should not go to court if he knows that he should not end up.” The question is, is what they really thought they would end up with.If they did, I think it is normal for them to walk in the field.If not, I think you should give up the place.

“The ATP has adjusted its rule. Maybe it should hit them should take a look at what they could do for the players to make it a bit easier.”

Federer believes that players who insist they compete in the first round despite the obvious physical problems do not have to be condemned. “For some, they want to be there because they have the impression that miracles happen: perhaps the other retreats, or perhaps the other carries a wound.

“If I win, I have a day off, maybe I would feel better on Thursday.” All these things also play in the equation.Remember these things too.Maybe the rain, come back the next day.You never know what the player ” .

Djokovic said he supported the ATP rule using the Slams, but also refused to criticize opponents who are unsuccessful. “If you go on the central court, there is a responsibility. I am sure they have done everything possible, but it is what it is,” said the Serbian.

John Isner, United States, said players wanted fans to stay and fight on the pitch as long as possible. “If it’s an unbearable pain, it’s okay, you can not play,” said Isner, who was an 11-hour game for three days to beat Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon seven years ago.

“If something is tight here or there and feels like it could be done right without getting hurt, I think they should be there, and I think we owe it to the fans.

Lionel Messi commits to Barcelona until 2021 in deal that includes a €300 million termination clause

Lionel Messi has agreed to stay in Barcelona until 2021, in an agreement that commits almost the star striker to play the rest of his first career plan in the Spanish team.

The mega star who came to Barcelona as a teenager 17 years ago will remain in the club until he is 34 under the new contract, announced the Catalan club Wednesday, ending months of speculation about the future five-time winner of the Golden Ball.

“The deal will be signed in the coming weeks when Messi returned to the team for spring training,” the club said in a statement, the young 30-year-old enjoyed his honeymoon a couple of days after his boyfriend’s boyfriend’s wedding in Argentina.

Messi has hinted in the past that back in the future to Argentina to play in Newell’s Boys Newell’s first club in his hometown of Rosario, where he married last week. But he also said his priority is to win more honors with Barça, a club he has called home for 13 years.

They did not release the financial details of the new contact Messi, but sports daily Marca of Spain said on Tuesday that the agreement includes a termination clause of 300 million euros.

According to its current contract, which will take place in June 2018, Messi earns around 20 million euros per year of salary, according to Spanish media, and does not include millions of euros in premium advertising revenue and related performance.

Messi arrived in Barcelona in 2000, when he was only 13 years old at the youth training center.

“He made his debut in the first team in just 16 in a friendly against FC Porto, before making his debut the following season against Espanyol in 17,” the club said in a statement.

“Shortly after, he scored his first goal with a skillful high ball against Albacete at the Nou Camp.”

The announcement of the deal is likely to reassure the fans and partners of FC Barcelona, ​​which has had a disappointing season by the club’s own high standards.

The club was eliminated from the quarter-finals of the Champions League with Juventus, and was second behind its rivals Real Madrid in the League, but Barça won the Copa del Rey.

The contract extension strengthens the feared Messi “MSN” triumph, which also includes Brazil’s Neymar and Luis Suarez.

The two have renewed their contracts until 2021.

With 507 goals in 583 official matches, Messi is the top scorer and is widely regarded as the best player in the world with Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid rival.

“He’s the best player I’ve ever seen on the ground,” said Barcelona coach Messi’s Ernesto Valverde.

Now 30, Messi could have been tempted by other horizons – they were courted by clubs like PSG and Manchester City – especially because he was convicted last year of tax fraud in Spain.

But he lived in Catalonia from the early years of his adolescence and now lives in Barcelona with his wife Antonella Roccuzzo his son Thiago, four, and Mateo, one of them born in Spain.

And Messi himself said in May that his goal as a footballer was “trying to win so many titles” with Barcelona.

Mumbai City FC also retained young goalkeeper Amrinder Singh while other clubs are also working overtime to seal deals to retain players of their choice before the July 7 deadline, after which the ten franchisees can focus In the draw of players from India scheduled for July 23.

With the extension of the ISL to 10 teams and can be played over a period of five months, the teams review their policies and plans in accordance with the new draft ISL standards.

The scope examines some important rules that were distributed to teams:

Each team can hold up to five players – two senior team members and three post-21 development players. In addition to Tata Steel, which will have a team in Jamshedpur, all other clubs have a team that can retain two top players.

If they do, Tata Steel will be the only club to pick up the players in the first two rounds of the project to ensure equal pitch.

If a franchisee retains T-21 players who have represented India, then the club would lose much of the draw.

Apart from these players development, all other players from India will be selected in the preliminary process.

The maximum size of the squad this season was reduced to 25 of 27. However, each club must register at least 22 players – 15 Indians and seven foreigners – and at least two of them must be involved in the development. The salary cap for each club is Rs 18 cr.

Teams sign directly foreign players and the final list must be submitted before September 12 and a complete list of teams, by October 15. Having a star player is not mandatory, although the club signs a star player, can be considered as another stranger.

Clubs must also sign their coach before July 15 and it is mandatory for all clubs that have at least one assistant coach from India (goalkeeping coach can also be considered as an assistant coach if India).

Starting next season, ISL has decided to add another mandatory Indian player on the field with a maximum number of six. This was done to give greater visibility to Indian players as an ISL club has a place in the AFC Cup next year where a team can not revive four foreigners, including one of Indian origin.

National players on the team can change only after five ISL matches (ie, 24 hours before the 6th, 11th game).

The wages of squad players may be higher than the cap of Rs 18 million rupees.
