US Open the luck of the draw was not kind to the top-ranked American (Source: AP) Serena Williams hadn’t played much coming into the Grand Slam tournament An injury hampered her preparation and she served miserably in the match That was the story in the fourth round of the 2012 Australian Open when a young Russian lefty named Ekaterina Makarova stunned Williams in straight sets The victory fueled Makarova’s surge up the rankings and by the 2014 US Open she was in the top 20 and facing the American in the semifinals That day is a much more pleasant memory for Williams a 6-1 6-3 win that was part of a dominant run to the title It’s the kind of form she’s hoping to regain as she begins her bid for a record 23rd major title But Williams has played just three singles matches since Wimbledon hindered by a right shoulder injury In her last outing a third-round loss to Elina Svitolina in the Olympics her serve deserted her much as it did against Makarova in Melbourne 4 1/2 years ago “Usually I prefer to play more coming into the final Grand Slam of the year but there is nothing we can do about it” Williams said Friday “You just have to make the best of every single opportunity That’s all I can do now” And she won’t get a chance to ease into the US Open the luck of the draw was not kind to the top-ranked Williams Makarova just missed out on a seed and is No 29 this week They’ll open the night session at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday Other matches to watch on Day 2 of the US Open: NOBODY LIKES LUKAS: In the nightcap on Ashe second-seeded Andy Murray faces Lukas Rosol The last time they met Murray wound up grumbling across the court to his opponent: “No one likes you on the tour everyone hates you” It all started when Rosol appeared to intentionally bump Murray during a changeover in that quarterfinal match at Munich in 2015 Murray later expressed some regret for his choice of words if not for his intentions in standing up to Rosol who has a reputation for such gamesmanship On Friday Murray said he and Rosol hashed things out after the match and “I have actually gotten along fine with him apart from that day” The 81st-ranked Rosol who upset Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2012 will probably need much more than intimidation tactics to knock Murray off his game Tuesday Murray has won 33 of his last 35 matches picking up a second Wimbledon title and second Olympic gold medal along the way DEL POTRO’S BACK: Since winning the 2009 title Juan Martin del Potro has missed three of the last six US Opens because of injuries He’s back

scandal in decades Russia is under siege at the Rio Games The Russian team tarnished and reduced in number following allegations of state-backed cheating is keeping tight-lipped after being jeered by hostile crowds at multiple venues But Russian fans are incensed and speaking out “They don’t love us here They think we do all these bad things that we are cunning and wicked” said Tatyana Omelchenko who travelled almost 15000 km (9320 miles) from the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk in Siberia to watch fencing in Rio “There is definitely an anti-Russian atmosphere We don’t think it we feel it” she added “They’re scared of us because we are strong” Following a doping scandal which threatened to split the Olympic movement and has cost over 100 Russian athletes their place at the Games Omelchenko and other Russians say their reception in Rio jars sharply with the Olympic Charter’s principles of inclusion and equality Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova who won her appeal against a doping ban only last Friday has been booed every time she stepped on to the pool deck and broke down in tears after taking home the 100 metres breaststroke silver medal on Monday Other Russian competitors have been jeered at events including fencing and beach volleyball especially when facing off against their Brazilian hosts and some Russian visitors have been mocked by rival fans Teams including the United States and China have also felt the heat of what Brazilians call zoeira or teasing more often seen in the country’s notoriously raucous football stadiums than at the Olympic Games But Russians feel they are being specifically targeted in light of the cheating allegations Speaking at a tense news conference after her race alongside gold medallist Lily King of the United States who publicly criticised her opponent’s doping record the previous day Efimova said it was “hurtful” that athletes were involving themselves in politics “Usually at the Olympic Games all wars are stopping” she told reporters in a trembling voice while struggling to keep her composure “But now they try to find a way how they can beat Russia” ‘WE DON’T DESERVE THAT’ Russia’s doping scandal which centres on evidence the Russian government and FSB security service colluded to cover up systematic cheating across the majority of Olympic sports has dominated the build-up to the Rio Games Only 278 of 387 Russian athletes originally named for the Olympics have been permitted to compete and Russia was excluded from next month’s Paralympic Games on Sunday over what organisers called a “medals over morals mentality” overseen at a state level Most Russian athletes in Rio have played coy dismissing suggestions of a negative atmosphere or refusing to comment saying they need to focus on the competition at hand “We don’t react … We’re not guilty of anything” said swimmer Viktoria Andreeva Officials have been more candid however acknowledging the mood but saying their athletes are clean and have nothing to prove “The team have all been tested and so we deserve respect our athletes have nothing to be ashamed of” said Russian Swimming Federation spokeswoman Alexandra Nekrasova “We don’t deserve that” she said of Efimova’s treatment at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium Russian President Vladimir Putin has denounced the allegations against Russian sport as a politically motivated plot and said the principle of collective responsibility lacks common sense and legality Following its decision to bar Russia from its own Games multiple sports federations criticised the International Paralympic Committee for punishing innocent athletes “for political reasons rather than sporting” Novosibirsk resident Anastasia Tsepaikina wearing a bright blue Team Russia tracksuit and swaddled in the Russian flag said she had been taunted by French fans in the Olympic Park “There is an atmosphere definitely a real hostility” she said “I’m sure it’s because of this doping stuff but that is politicised

are two very different individuals and cannot be compared (Source: Express Archives) Top News India’s 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev feels limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a lot of experience and should continue to lead the side as long as he is good enough for the job With Kohli doing extremely well as Test captain there have been whispers from time to time that he should be handed over the captaincy of the limited overs as well “I think the answer people should look for is are we ready to ask Dhoni to take a back seat It is more important I think if he is good enough he should carry on When the time will come Dhoni may quit all three formats” Kapil said “But I think at the moment it is very important Dhoni is doing a good job I think he has enough experience and he should continue” Asked to compare Dhoni and Kohli as captains Kapil said: “It is too early to answer that and again the two individuals are different and every individual is different Kohli is very expressive while Dhoni is calm and quite I think it is very difficult to compare because both have different teams and different attitude “Things have changed Tomorrow you may ask can you compare these two with Sourav Ganguly as captain So every captain brings in his own input and aggression and motivation but it all depends on how you use these things with your team for best results That is captaincy It is not that you have to be aggressive and if you are not aggressive still you win the match it is good enough” Kapil said The former swing bowler heaped praise on Indian seamers saying they have all improved a lot “It is not about 140 plus speed that Indian bowlers achieve but the line and length is very important If you can bowl 135 speed and get movement that is good enough But again if you have pace you always get advantage of that” Kapil said “These days the boys work on that It is good to see that they have the pace Bhuvneshwar Ishant Umesh Shami all bowl that speed Fast bowlers have improved a lot” he added India’s fielding coach R Sridhar had said yesterday that the home team should have done better in close in catching However Kapil gave a thumbs up to the overall fielding of the home team “I think basically the Indian fielding has improved a lot since our time But still one can understand that all the XI fielders are not the same They have two or three brilliant fielders in the side” he said “If the majority of the players in a side also improve then the fielding could become better When you talk about fielding in a team everyone has to be good enough” Asked about India’s performance abroad compared to their result at home Kapil said: “Our record has certainly improved over the years When we played on the England tour we were thrashed Otherwise we did well in the West Indies and Australia We will see the future tours and tournament when we go there At the moment I think the improvement is there in our performances abroad “After all if you do not win matches abroad you cannot become number one in the world” On day/night Test matches Kapil said: “I think at the moment they are experimenting with first class matches I think traditional things should continue We need to keep the tradition like Wimbledon is always played on grass You do not play Test matches with coloured cloths” Kapil also slammed the idea of a neutral venue for Ranji Trophy matches terming it a “horrible” idea “Horrible I do not approve of the idea I would like to play Ranji match at my ground and playing with other team on a third team ground there is no sense This system should be done away with” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew York: For all the clamour surrounding the successful
