Roger Federer insists his Wimbledon triumph should serve as a warning to his Olympic rivals


Roger Federer says his victory at Wimbledon should be a warning to his former rivals, such as Olympic Games, not be an obstacle to his dream of winning a gold medal at the All England Club.

Federer at Wimbledon victory equivalent to the Olympics just three weeks after defeating Andy Murray, a title with a record seven Grand Slam on grass, but the Swiss star thirst for success was not immediate.

After completing his two-year drought in the majors and the return to the top-ranked Roger Federer once again shines supreme confidence that marked his time as the dominant force in the sport.

He silenced the critics, the 30-year-old was a force that fade more focused on his young family had to work to combat the twin threats of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal claimed facts.

And Federer believes his Wimbledon crown last is even more special because it's at an age when most players his age he was already retired and for a moment when Djokovic, Nadal and Andy Murray, all three under more thereof, provided that the intense competition for the prize.

"Winning at Wimbledon has now fallen indeed, especially when I have it here at the draw and I am the number one seed. It was not the case for some time," Federer said before the opening date of the tournament Saturday.

"I always thought that I'd like to start from scratch. I knew my game was strong. I had a couple of tough losses last year, which led me to go further and perhaps again stopped in the first hour. But the good that I never gave up and started playing better, especially at Wimbledon, where the pressure was so strong.

"It's a dream come true and I am happy to, because Nadal, Djokovic and Murray are at their peak. That would normally not be of my age."

Federer is now one of the best months of his illustrious career with a pinch of gold, in order to limit their already brilliant resume.

He won gold in doubles with Stanislas Wawrinka in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, but Olympic gold in the escape of individual great personal honor to Federer, with his best performance coming to Sydney in 2000, when he finished fourth.

Nadal ruled out with knee problems, Federer Alejandro Falla of Colombia is in the first round, recognized his status as favorite for the Olympic Games.

But he knows he can be life threatening to let his thoughts turn to another historic success at the All England Club, especially in an event with the best of three sets format that can punish the concentration error even short.

"I always thought that if he played in the Olympics at Wimbledon, I felt tremendous pressure, but I think I was not much pressure because I have a gold medal," said Federer.

"I know it was not double and single, but nobody can take that away from me and Stan.

"The margins are much closer to the event. Five minutes or a few negatives that will cost you the tournament. In this format, who had gone to Wimbledon against (Julien) Benneteau, since he was two sets to love down.

"I know that, but his victory at Wimbledon was a great help to my confidence.

"I played very well and I was able to beat Novak. I'm back to square one, when mixed together, it could be that I am the favorite.

"I go to a place where I have won so often and gives me incredible confidence back."

Federer's path to gold glory seems relatively harmless, watching with Spanish David Ferrer and Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, the most difficult opponents in their own half of the draw.

In the end it was the second-seeded Djokovic, who opens against Italian Fabio Fognini, or third-seeded Murray, who begins his attempt to erase the pain of his loss to Federer in tears with a fight to play against Wawrinka.

A report in the mail today, wrote that while Krishnamachari Srikkanth said the head of the National Team Yuvraj Singh for a return to the India team, the versatile Indian star, admitted that his intention has not yet taken a form concrete.


The report goes on to talk with reporters, Yuvraj said it would take some serious game time to get in shape. "The Ranji Trophy after the World Twenty20. In all cases, we can not Ranji Trophy for the T20 game ready. Practice you can get serious game before the World Twenty20, the Moin-ud Dowla and Buchi Babu Trophy Invitational, but I'm still aware of their data. "

Clarke is very worry for victory over England


Australia captain Michael Clarke has urged his side to leave England with at least one international victory after suffering another hammer in the hands of their former enemies. Eight wicket victory England


in Riverside Sunday gave them the game five in a number of days the highlight of the tour of Australia was short, because they took an unassailable 3-0 lead washed after Wednesday clash at Edgbaston without ball excited.


Now just the final at Old Trafford on Tuesday left for Australia, the number ended one of the world 50 over the page to get some pride back before returning to England for an Ashes test series complete in the next year.


England, after the victory certainly a useful start, restricted Australia to 200 for nine of their 50 overs here on Sunday, with fast bowler Steven Finn at four for 37th


In response, England fell to 201 to spare for two people with 13 bullets, as they won their ninth in a series one-day international. Ian Bell made a stylish 69 not ended, and his colleague Jonathan Trott Warwickshire 64th


Making matters worse, Australian fast bowler for both Brett Lee and Shane Watson left the field early variety with calf problems suspects.


"We've been dominated - simple as that," said Clarke, a lull during the ingestion of 85 balls in the basket on Sunday, going 43rd


"But we have a game to go, and I would hate to go home without a win - that's for sure."


Thinking about the game on Sunday, he added: "I think England had the best conditions, but it's easy to excuse himself.


"I think we had the best conditions for the Lord as well, and England have found a way to beat us."


As for Lee and Watson, Clarke said he was uncertain about the extent of their fitness concerns. "I have not had time to Alex Kountouris (physiotherapist from Australia) to speak, but I know they both have the calf injury -. To what extent, I do not know"


One consolation for Australia was the form of David Hussey, who was at number six with a straight face, near a 70-run shot to his side from depths of 96 save up to six to Finland, two one-off on a hat-trick, took two wickets in two balls for the second time in the game.


"I thought Dave Hussey was outstanding today (Sunday)," said Clarke. "I think Dave is suitable for the middle order. He hits the ball as clean as anyone to death, so while PowerPlay stick and last last 10 overs of the game, there are so destructive as any other."


But Clarke said Australia was with the middle-order expertise of Michael Hussey, David's older brother, who missed the tour after a stay at home to have done with his wife after his premature birth to her fourth child.


"We've probably missed something from this experience - to know conditions and have been around for so long."


England are unbeaten in one dayers in 2012 and captain Alastair Cook is keen to keep this record in Manchester.


"Four-Zero looks a lot better than 1.3", he said. "They will not be desperate to happen, but we have learned, just as hungry as we were in those games. It would be great to make it 10 wins."


Such a force bowling, deep in England, the nation's world-class test, the Finn is just on the edge of her team of five days.


"Everything is focused on playing Test cricket - I always wanted to do that," said Finn.


"I take full responsibility of opening the bowling (ODIS), tries to expand on it and my name in the hat for the selection test."

Once again, Roger Federer will be playing in the Wimbledon final


Wimbledon, England - Roger Federer will play in the Wimbledon final. For once, will face Andy Murray.


A few hours after Federer reached his eighth record of the modern era final at the All England Club, Murray advanced to his first - and the first for a British man since Bunny Austin in 1938.


"There are a lot of pressure and stress at this time of year," said Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 beating Friday. "I feel when I'm in the field or in practice, when I leave. Try not to think about these things.


"But in the mind, it's there."


Federer has played Novak Djokovic in the roof on Centre Court, and was similar to that of the player who won six titles on the same turf. Beating the 16-time Grand Slam winner last year, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, and today is a victory that corresponds to the record of Pete Sampras at Wimbledon titles in September


"I have to go to a game. I know that," said Federer, 30, 6-1 in the Wimbledon final against Djokovic and is now 1-0 in the grass. "But it is always good for someone who beat Novak, who has so well here last year, the last two years."


The victory improved record in the semifinals at the All England Club Federer 8-0. His only loss came in the final in 2008, when Rafael Nadal won 9-7 in the fifth.


On Saturday, four times champion Serena Williams, Agnieszka Radwanska in the final of older women. Radwanska will play in his first Grand Slam final, despite a respiratory disease, so it was difficult to speak for them.


In the men's final on Sunday, is the conversation that makes the hitting zone.


Federer is almost certainly have the psychological advantage against Murray. Not only was it before that date seven times, but beat Murray in three sets to two Grand Slam finals - in the U.S. Open 2008 and the Australia Open 2010.


Murray is 0-3 in Grand Slam finals - 0-9 in the playoffs in three games - and also the expectations of his country directly on his shoulders. The British public has been waiting for a couple of male Wimbledon champion in 76 years, as Fred Perry won the last of his three titles in 1936.


"I need your help on Sunday, because it is a great challenge to beat Roger in the final of a Slam at Wimbledon," Murray said. "I hope that everything comes from people with me."


A few minutes after the victory over Tsonga, called the British Prime Minister David Cameron win the "good news", perhaps accumulating more pressure on Murray.


"I will see the final on Sunday and like the rest of the country to get behind Andy Murray," Cameron said in a statement. "I wish you good luck."


While Murray's victory is celebrated across the UK, between Queen's Jubilee last month and the next Olympics in London, Federer plays for most of history. A victory in his 24th Grand Slam final again, as he is ranked 1, and equal Sampras's record of 286 weeks of first class players.


"There is much in line to win for me in terms of here, all time record for Grand Slam, the number 1 in the world," said Federer. "I'm in this game with a little pressure, but I'm excited about it. This is what I play."


William Renshaw and Arthur Gore also played in eight finals of Wimbledon, but it was still the reigning champion was given a pass title matches the following year. This rule was amended 1922nd Renshaw won seven titles and three Gore.


Despite the chance to win, Roger Federer, is a historic decision, which could be the factor that Murray Queen Elizabeth II to be Sunday at the All England Club.


The Queen came to Wimbledon in 2010 - the first time I had traveled in 33 years. He jumped in the last year, but could play Murray in the last reason enough for a true revival.


"I do not know if it will be on Sunday," said Murray, "but would be fine."

Virender Sehwag says: MS Dhoni’s captaincy alone didn’t win India the World Cup was perceived as a loaded one.


When the free-flowing bat, Virender Sehwag knows no moderation in words. His comments on Friday that the captain MS Dhoni has not only won the World Cup in India is perceived as a burden.


'Alone' was the key word here, because Sehwag simply suggested that the entire India team plays as world leaders.
Sehwag was the inauguration of Saba Karim, Pro-Genesis Cricket Centre Greater Noida, where he was invited to 31 Reply anniversary and was their captain Dhoni.


Since 2008, reports surfaced about the alleged differences between Dhoni and Sehwag. Stories of disagreement within the team, which emerged during the last tour of India, Australia does not justify the story. Of course, the comments were accompanied by media hungry.


"I do not know what others feel, but by the time Dhoni took over as captain, had a strong team. Its captain not only to win the World Cup in India," he said.


Sehwag, however, developed ... "We had a very strong team already, so we won the T20 World Championship limited number of extensions, where a good team win, it's easy to Australia has a good team and won three world championships as well, and it was not Because of their captain. They had great players. And so I will say that the Indian team captain Dhoni won the championship continued. "


He said he was ready for the rigors of international cricket. "I played almost every game of the IPL and not about fitness now," he said.


The agitator of Sachin Tendulkar Delhi supported the decision to withdraw from the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Sehwag said: "A player of his stature should be allowed to play the series, you want to choose."


I was not too worried that the next generation of young percussionists in India is not doing well in first grade during the last few games, "A" of the Caribbean tour. "Before I was a prominent member of the senior team, I was going to" A "tours. Some clues to these visits and not to others. This is not to say that no, not good enough. The best part is you make mistakes and learn from it and try to correct in domestic cricket and come back stronger, "he said.

Murray Finish Britain's 74-year wait for men's finalist at Wimbledon


Wimbledon, England - The shot? Step by step to take as slicing, 117 miles per hour on duty at the match point, he crossed the crack and just trim the edge of the sideline? That was the easy part. Andy Murray knew it was a good snapshot of the Met ball chain knew before anyone else in the UK, who had won on Friday and Sunday, the final of Wimbledon 2012 is going to play. He dropped his racket in his hands, then clenched his fists in his eyes. But when he looked up, all was confusion.


The referee had been winners. Fifteen thousand throats had been angry at the center court holding a dead arm extended linesman called the ball. Murray went to the network, asked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, I thought. "I do not really know," said Tsonga, a wide smile. "But I think it is wide."


"I thought," Murray said, and he was right, of course: The Board recurrence showed the ball on the pass line when the crowd took his roar happily revealed that Murray had beaten Tsonga 6-3, 6-4 to , 3-6, 7-5 in the first Briton since Bunny Austin in 1938 to a final at the All England Club. The two men embraced, at which point you could see the beginning of the most difficult. Tsonga Murray laughed, and held his neck, giving it a squeeze, as if to comfort her. Murray frowned, shrugged. It seemed as if suddenly an anvil 76 years had placed on his back.
Everyone is tired of listening, but maybe, just maybe, this will be the last time to win the last British man was Fred Perry Wimbledon in 1936. When a reporter at his press conference, how nice, Perry asked if he would try to bless his possible victory, Murray shook his head and muttered a puzzling picture.


"He is not alive, but," he said.
True, but the spirit still haunts Perry was British tennis, it seems. Murray is now the best opportunity to lead their nation to the old one, but come Sunday, is the history of tennis-hyper-local, only half the equation. So far the perfect ending for two weeks to be extremely unpredictable, Roger Federer will go with Murray Sunday afternoon trying to regain its place at the top of the game.
It was 2 ½ years since Federer, 30, won a couple of months, and 25 since the great Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and then move as No. 1. A victory Sunday would make Federer again, give seventh Wimbledon singles title to match Pete Sampras and record holder 286, Sampras record week correspond to position 1. In addition to a 17th Grand Slam titles --- and an oddly flat crushed Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, on Friday in the first semifinal - they all speak the silence of a Federer's decline, and cemented his status as the best player in history.


Everything in view of tennis anyway, will the pressure on the No. 4 Murray, Federer is loved by the members of Wimbledon and the public and, with a record of 14-1 final against anyone not named Nadal tail, is strongly recommended. If it appears that Murray is a chance, lose it, the center court has its fantasies and reverence, for the first time, Federer treated as something less than the embodiment of everything they own, just and reasonable.


"I need your help on Sunday, because, yes, there is a great challenge to beat Roger in the final of a Grand Slam, at Wimbledon," said Murray, who has a head header record to 8-7 against Federer lost, but against him in two of three finals he contested. "I hope the public is with me. You helped me out of difficult times in recent games, and no doubt will need it again."


You will be with him, well - if he wins. For years, a joke that the Glasgow meeting of British and Scottish Murray when he wins when he loses (after Friday's victory, the website "AndyMurrayometer" put 97 percent of United Kingdom). Sounds fun, also noted that, argue that the Scottish government, a referendum on independence in 2014 will. Or think that the English Football Association no objection, the adjustment has a Swedish or Italian as national coach, while the idea of ​​the nation's best - Sir Alex Ferguson of Manchester United - Management is absurd.


British tennis is much less confrontational. Murray will represent Great Britain at the Olympics, and his mother, Judy, was in the development of instrumental Scottish tennis during his time as captain of Team GB Fed Cup. But even though the country saw Murray cruise throughout the first Friday, a small crack appeared. "Let's Murray in English!" shouted a fan in the stands. After bombed two aces Murray 4-1, other brogued shouted, "Come on Come on Scotland Andy!"
Everyone laughed, somehow, but Murray had the game in hand, then. For two sets, in fact, was the second service Murray and aggression significantly improved this year under new coach Ivan Lendl, Federer was at his heels. But there's a reason why the bacon and the dynamics of French in straight sets to Federer at Wimbledon last year in the quarterfinals rate, pay in sixth place and is the current player Andre Agassi to be seen.


"Jo is a stud," said Agassi. "It's not predictable. He can do anything at any time with the firepower has no explosiveness and movement. Watched him play I love."
"I'm not the most talented tour," said Tsonga. "But I drag on the war."


Just before the third set, Federer had to "unlock" left the court for the return leg. He transformed. Murray, now seemed to shrink, as the idea began to sink in. win Tsonga took him from the beginning and kept after him on hands and knees, Murray, 03.05, 15, all with a forehand passing Screaming - a tactic popularized Lendl - the organization. He landed in the most vulnerable. "New balls, please!" Someone shouted from the crowd.


But Federer came in the room is fully charged, immediately call a pause overshadowed the court and hit the break points in eight games with great service, amazing volleys and a soft, inside-in forehand of his execution. Murray pain seemed almost inevitable when behind 4-4, 15-40 down, but slowly regain their confidence, nerve, and serve again, unleashed two killer backhand in the tie-break, 12, and Tsonga broke for ever, for now, mostly in the forehand of the United Kingdom almost eight decades.


Not that Murray wants to think so. Not yet. "After the game, make sure not disturbed on the ground, never too high, too low, do not try," he said. "Maybe in the past, I was too high and the bottom. Need to try to be more stable in the ground, not so emotional. The only thing I would like removed is known [Lendl] ... It was not. T like all the costumes enthusiastically jumps was: Not going to a game like that, but we concentrate on the next "..


But there is no way around it, of what this year was Murray at Wimbledon, and sat in the empty Centre Court grass alone. "When I played here, I have not understood what it was," he said, "and took some years for me before I knew how important this tournament was for me to understand is how important it is for the courts -. And in this country "
But in reality, nobody knows - not Murray, players who failed before him, not the fans. Yes, Brit, Virginia Wade won the Wimbledon women's singles title in 1977, but somehow that acute pain has been the curse of Fred Perry's part of British culture, was seen as a commentary on British masculinity is mourning over the summer in the newspapers as having a long life of its own. Nobody knows what a burden, it really meant was, until it disappears. There will be a national celebration, then, as if England wins the World Cup in 1966? Thousands are packing Trafalgar Square? Or is the story of a man killing another ghost?


"Maybe it can happen to Andy," Marian Vajda, Djokovic, the coach said Friday. . "No doubt he played his best tennis on grass, this is your chance" and then laughed Vajda said - and it almost sounded like a threat, "This is your chance.". Because he knows that history is full of tennis players, even big ones, who came oh so close to the definition of a prize to take advantage of the race. Maybe it happened once, when he has John McEnroe in Paris in 1984, twice, as he did at Wimbledon in Lendl 86 and 87. The game is cruel that way.
On Sunday, the two men walking on the court. On the one hand, the opportunity again.
