all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt could so easily have been an all-Indian men’s singles final It could equally easily have been a men’s singles final in which no Indians featured Eventually an in-between bittersweet solution was arrived at HS Prannoy had as many as five match points to finish his Indonesia Open Super Series Premier badminton semi-final in two straight games against Japanese qualifier Kazumasa Sakai He blew all five and ended up losing the second and third games along with the chance of making his first Super Series final Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai celebrate after defeating India’s HS Prannoy in the semi-final AP Kidambi Srikanth trailed by a match point in the deciding game of a humdinger of a semi-final against World No 1 Son Wan Ho of South Korea and could easily have joined his fellow-countryman and regular sparring partner Prannoy on the sidelines However he chose to fight like a cornered tiger and converted his own third match point into victory to remain alive in this elite competition Indeed Prannoy who had sensationally eliminated two former World No 1’s on successive days simply ran out of emotional energy and succumbed to the 27-year-old Japanese journeyman at 21-17 26-28 18-21 He was on court for an hour and 16 minutes which was a minute more than he had been the previous day while slipping it across reigning world and Olympic champion Chen Long Srikanth on the other hand dug deep into reserves that even he might not have believed he had while lowering the colours of the South Korean who was celebrating his World No 1 status for the third successive week by a 21-15 14-21 24-22 scoreline It was a scintillating battle that kept him on the only court laid in the Jakarta Convention Centre for four minutes less than his compatriot had taken earlier What the Srikanth-Wan Ho match lacked for sheer quality in comparison with the Prannoy-Long encounter the previous day it more than made up in drama and excitement as it scaled dizzy heights in the extra-points duel in the decider on a day when each of the first seven of the scheduled 10 semi-final matches in this $1 million prize money tournament went the full distance As the Indian squeezed that extra inch of pace from his exhausted body and went for smashes from near-impossible angles in an all-out effort to close out the match the packed audience could actually sense his implacable resolve to make his second consecutive Super Series final after the Singapore Open summit clash which he had lost to compatriot Sai Praneeth That said there was little at the start to indicate that the encounter was headed for such a fiery end Srikanth’s angular face exuded fierce determination and he moved with alacrity on the court to take 7-4 and 11-6 leads dominating the rallies near the net He had the mortification of needing to adjust to the heavy cross drift in the stadium that carried either wide or long all the lofted clears to Wan Ho’s backhand The South Korean on his part looked strangely subdued and concentrated on defending anything that his rival threw at him without trying to force the pace It allowed Srikanth playing well within himself to stay at least three points clear all the way — 12-9 13-10 14-11 after which he powered to an 18-12 lead It was sufficient to nail him the opening game in just 17 minutes The World No 1 and second seed demonstrated a lot more enterprise in the second keeping the shuttle down as much as possible to avoid becoming a victim of the diabolical drift Yet Srikanth now playing from the better side and against the drift was able to play his strokes without fear of their floating obliquely out and appeared to have the match under full control when he led 13-10 Unaccountably and without warning the Indian lapsed into a string of unforced errors that had him losing 11 of the next 12 points to hand Wan Ho the second game on a platter as it were It was agonising for the handful of Indian supporters in the stands to understand how their player had suddenly gone off the boil and why his timing was so badly off that he kept hitting his smashes into the lower half of the net The meltdown continued into the decider and Srikanth kept finding the net with his smashes; else he would have been able to build up a lead rather than having his opponent staying within a point of his score When they went into the change of ends with a solitary point separating them one feared for Srikanth’s prospects as the Indian looked distinctly peaked whereas Wan Ho had stepped up a gear and was attacking more than at any time earlier in the match India’s Srikanth Kidambi plays a shot against South Korea’s Son Wan Ho during their semi-final AP No more than a point separated the two opponents all the way to the tape until the No 2 seed stood at match-point 20-19 This is where the drama began building to a crescendo Wan Ho’s hard push to Srikanth’s baseline was called correct by the linesman and the match was technically over — but for the Indian mounting a line challenge He was proved correct as the bird had landed a centimetre long 20-all That was the last chance that Son Wan Ho got to end the tussle Srikanth wrested his own first match point with quicksilver movements and power-packed smashes but mishit a return out along the sidelines to return to deuce The Indian missed out on another match point which the South Korean saved with some amazing defensive skills But on his third match point an utterly exhausted but alert Srikanth got back a lightning tap from Wan Ho with a reflex stroke that would have done a Lin Dan or a Lee Chong Wei proud Even amidst the delight of reaching his fourth Super Series final — he had won the 2014 China Open and the 2015 India Open before losing the 2017 Singapore Open final — Srikanth would have felt a pang of sympathy for his Gopichand Academy batchmate Prannoy who had done everything except make what would have been his own first Super Series final Having taken down Malaysia’s top-seeded Chong Wei and China’s reigning world and Olympic champion Long on the two previous days the 24 year old Indian would have been expected to have had the easier of the two semi-final assignments — to ease past Japan’s Sakai a qualifier and rank outsider currently ranked 47th in the world Prannoy who has moved up from 29th to 25th in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings this week — still some way from the career-high 12th rank he had achieved in June 2015 — did not appear physically distressed after his titanic battle the previous day against Long and started the contest brightly with handy leads of 5-2 and 9-3 which he duly enlarged to 15-8 and 16-9 It was at this point that Prannoy began displaying signs of human frailty — at least mental if not physical Sakai prolonged the rallies in much the same way as the Indian had against Long on Friday gradually wore down his rival’s resistance and induced errors Although Prannoy tightened up after 17-14 to take the first game at 21-17 the portents in the second game looked far from encouraging Sakai took a huge leap to 12-5 and then 16-10; and it appeared as if the contest was headed for a decider Prannoy however summoned some inner strength and slowly began pulling it back point by excruciating point From an inferior 15-18 situation he reeled off four points to wrest the lead at 19-18 And when he stood at 20-19 it appeared as if he would make the final by the short route The Indian had not however made allowances for the tremendous fighting spirit that the Japanese player showed He neutralised the danger On four more occasions Prannoy stood at match point but Sakai showed skill and patience and the willingness to await an error from his anxious antagonist Prannoy at 24-23 was not permitted to close out the match despite playing a 38-stroke rally The Japanese who has only a solitary Grand Prix title by way of the 2012 Russian Open finally took the crucial second game on his own third game point; and for Prannoy that was the match The misery of losing that game at 26-28 after five match points would have mentally crushed anyone; and the Indian was no exception Sakai remained ahead all through the decider; and though Prannoy put in a final despairing effort to reduce an 11-17 margin to 17-18 the writing was on the wall With the exit of the last seeded player Wan Ho from the men’s singles in this tournament of upsets it was left to another South Korean Sung Ji Hyun to save the seeding committee its blushes The fifth seed in the women’s singles had a topsy-turvy match against giant-killer Zhang Beiwen mainly due to the strong cross drift in the hall before subduing the unseeded American at 21-10 8-21 21-10 In the final on Sunday Sung will take on tall Japanese left-hander Sayaka Sato who recovered from the loss of the first game to Thailand’s Nitchaon Jindapol to eke out a hard-earned 13-21 21-18 21-14 triumph Totally outmanoeuvred in the first game by the speedy strokeful Jindapol Sato switched tactics in the second and repeatedly pulled her opponent to the backhand net corner — after noticing that the Thai girl had strained the hamstring on her left leg and had difficulty pushing back on the limb As for the last remaining top seeds in a tournament that has seen lofty reputations being torn to shreds the mixed doubles pairing of Zheng Siwei and Chen Qingchen survived the semi-final to look forward on Sunday to the dubious prospect of facing Indonesians Tontowi Ahmad and Lilyana Natsir With Natsir returning from an injury lay-off and playing as well as ever the 2012 Olympic gold medalists will have the full-throated support of the home crowd as they attempt to complete a Grand Slam demolition of top seeds in the infamous Graveyard of Champions as the Jakarta Convention Centre — used only because the regular venue of the Indonesia Open the Istora Senayan is under renovation — has come to be known Follow our live blog for live scores and updates from the final day of the Indonesia Superseries Premier By: AP | Doha | Published: November 14 2016 8:22 pm Los Angeles bid leader Casey Wasserman said his group has already been in contact with members of Trump’s transition team REUTERS Top News Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election looms over the race for the 2024 Summer Games as the three bid cities prepare to make their first presentations to a key gathering of global Olympic officials With 10 months before the vote bid leaders from Los Angeles Paris and Budapest Hungary have traveled to Doha to pitch their case to the general assembly of the Association of National Olympic Committees a meeting attended by more than 1000 delegates from around the world The Los Angeles bid team may have the most at stake in Tuesday’s 20-minute presentations which will occur exactly a week after Trump’s election victory over Hillary Clinton Trump’s comments during the campaign about Muslims and Mexicans and his foreign policy plans could hurt the US city’s standing with some of the IOC’s 98 members who represent a wide range of countries and cultural and religious backgrounds Los Angeles bid leader Casey Wasserman who was a prominent Clinton supporter said his group has already been in contact with members of Trump’s transition team “My personal support of Clinton isn’t an indictment of president-elect Trump’s ability to support our effort” Wasserman told The Associated Press “We’re fully confident that he will be an enthusiastic supporter of the Olympics and our bid” “Having said that I think the Olympics are at its best when they rise above politics” he added “It has the ability to unite people Our bid isn’t a political bid It’s a private bid with political support We are privately funded and privately operated We are one step removed from the politics and the ups and downs of politics” While details have been kept secret the Los Angeles presentation which includes Mayor Eric Garcetti a Democrat is likely to deal head-on with the US election result and seek to reassure Olympic officials that the bid represents openness diversity and inclusiveness “We’re not going to pretend like there wasn’t an election but we’re not going to be defensive about it” Wasserman said “I think there are some things we’re going to say that will surprise some people” Perhaps as a contrast to Trump’s image the bid team selected sprint star Allyson Felix a Los Angeles-born African-American athlete who has won six Olympic gold medals and three silvers as one of its key speakers for the presentation Felix won two relay gold medals and a silver medal in the 400 meters in Rio de Janeiro in August “She’s born bred raised and developed in Los Angeles She’s a hometown girl” Wasserman said “I can’t think of anybody better to tell our story” The Doha audience will include officials from 205 national Olympic committees dozens of international sports federations and most importantly dozens of members of the International Olympic Committee which will vote on the host city next September in Lima Peru Under tighter IOC rules these are the first of only three presentations during the two-year bid race The second will be at a private technical briefing for IOC members in Switzerland in July and the third will be the final presentations on the day of the vote in Lima Whether Trump will be part of the Los Angeles bid team in Lima remains to be seen President Barack Obama went to Copenhagen in 2009 to speak on behalf of Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics but his appearance didn’t help as the city went out in the first round of an election won by Rio de Janeiro “We’re getting way ahead of the game” Wasserman said “We’re going to make the right judgment at the right time for our bid” Paris and Los Angeles which have each held the Olympics twice have been viewed as close front-runners in the 2024 race Paris last held the games in 1924 with Los Angeles hosting in 1984 Paris bid leaders said they plan to use Tuesday’s presentation which includes Mayor Anne Hidalgo and two-time Olympic judo champion Teddy Riner to announce plans for collaboration with national Olympic committees “We are feeling the excitement” Paris bid co-chairman and three-time Olympic canoeing gold medalist Tony Estanguet said Monday “I feel like an athlete I feel the adrenaline” Like Los Angeles the Paris bid could be influenced by a presidential election Far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen is among the contenders in next spring’s French presidential race Estanguet downplayed any concerns over a potential Le Pen victory saying the bid has support across the political spectrum in France He said France was also working hard to guarantee security following a spate of deadly attacks in the country “It can happen anywhere in the world but we have a strong base and lots of experience in security” he said Budapest meanwhile is expected to portray itself as the right-sized affordable alternative from central Europe “Holding the Olympic Games in Budapest would help to pave the way for a greater range of mid-sized cities to host the games in addition to the larger capitals and mega cities that have hosted the games in recent times” bid chairman Balazs Furjes said For all the latest Sports News download Indian

etiquettes at a five-star hotel make me a little uncomfortable Long back I had stayed at a five-star hotel and it was my first visit I went downstairs to have dinner and saw a man slicing mango (delicately) and started eating it with a spoon I wanted to have it too but not like that “So I called the bell boy and asked him to deliver mangoes to my room When the fruit came I rinsed and ate them just the way it should be eaten- with bare hands” The actor who started his Bollywood journey with “Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere” in 1960 has often been called “He-Man” or “Action King” Yet Dharmendra says he never feels like a star “For 55 years the audience has loved me unconditionally I never consider myself an actor nor a star I have just tried to spread love through my movies and
