Vintage Federer holds off Nadal to reach Wimbledon final

first_imgLONDON, (Reuters) – A vintage display by Roger Federer took him past Rafael Nadal into the Wimbledon final in an eagerly-anticipated first grasscourt duel between the great rivals for 11 years today. The 40th career meeting between the golden duo with 38 Grand Slam titles between them, swung this way and that before Federer seized control to claim a 7-6(3) 1-6 6-3 6-4 victory.World number one and defending champion Novak Djokovic now stands between the 37-year-old Federer, the oldest finalist here since Ken Rosewall in 1974, and a record-equalling ninth Wimbledon title in Sunday’s showpiece.“I’m exhausted. It was tough at the end,” said 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer, who needed five match points to end an absorbing scrap that never scaled the heights of their 2008 epic when Nadal won a final dubbed the greatest of all time. “Rafa played some unbelievable shots to stay in the match. The match was played at a very high level.“It was a joy to play today,” he added after reaching his 31st Grand Slam final.After edging a tense first set by taking the last five points of the tiebreak, Federer was overpowered in a 36-minute second as Nadal, eyeing a first Wimbledon title for nine years, appeared to have wrestled control. Federer’s fans inside Centre Court and those massed on ‘Henman Hill’ watching the drama unfold on the giant screen, need not have worried though as the second seed proved he had plenty left in the tank.Playing with relentless aggression Federer began to dictate from the baseline and broke early in the third set, held off a fierce Nadal counter-attack in the next game, then swept back into a one-set lead.The effervescent Swiss turned the screw to break again early in the fourth and there was to be no way back for third seed Nadal as he lost a Grand Slam semi-final against Federer for the first time, having won the previous four. The 33-year-old Spanish warrior was never going to slink away without a fight though.He clung on at 3-5, saving two match points, then had a break point as Federer served for the match.The ice cool Swiss fended off that danger and unloaded everything in his arsenal at Nadal in two more break points, only to see victory snatched away by two sublime winners off the indefatigable Spaniard’s racket. A fifth match point arrived though and as Nadal swung a backhand over the baseline Federer pumped his arms above his head to celebrate only his fourth Grand Slam win over the Spaniard he has battled around the world for 15 years.“Today it’s sad for me because chances are not forever,” a deflated Nadal said. “He played a bit better than me, I had a few small chances but didn’t convert them.”last_img read more

Athletics pitcher Mike Fiers’ new facial hair is … something

first_imgMike Fiers made a decision this morning.We’re not sure if it was a good decision, but it was a decision. His chose to sport some new facial hair that can be described as …A rams horn?An upside-down question mark?A fish hook?Here, take a look for yourself because we’re at a loss for words.New look for Mike Fiers…#RootedInOakland pic.twitter.com/ZFpBHXoq0u— Brodie Brazil (@BrodieNBCS) September 14, 2019It might be a first for any MLB player.Sure, Rollie Fingers sported the handlebar mustache and Jeff Bagwell wore an ill-advised goatee when he was in his prime, but this is something entirely different. We’ll see if it helps him pitch any better this time out.Fiers gave up six home runs and nine earned runs in one inning of work in his last start.We didn’t think it could get any worse than that. Then we saw this. Let’s hope it doesn’t work out too well so it becomes a regular look for Fiers.last_img read more

Mourinho unlucky this season – Sir Alex

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho arrives for the Europa League match against FC Rostov at Old Trafford on March 16, 2017MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 18 – Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has voiced his support for manager Jose Mourinho, claiming he has been unlucky in the Premier League.Mourinho’s men are 17 points adrift of first-placed Chelsea, and sit fifth in the standings after drawing 10 of their 27 league games. Ferguson, who led the Red Devils to 13 Premier League titles, believes the Portuguese tactician has been unlucky not to have turned more of those draws into wins.“I get on well with Jose and think he’s doing a really good job,” he told SiriusXM FC in quotes reported by the Daily Telegraph.“He’s been a bit unlucky actually because there are home games this season they’ve been absolutely brilliant in but have drawn them.“If they’d got those wins they deserved they’d be challenging for the league, there’s no doubt about that.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
