Wednesday presented a strong case "Narsingh’s lawyers have presented strong arguments in his favour in front of the NADA committee They have filed a 600-page affidavit The panel took note of the arguments and considered the points made by the lawyers Narsingh and his lawyers seem to be happy with the way things went at the hearing today" WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh told PTI "The application on the second dope test (taken on July 5) that has also turned out to be positive was also submitted" said Singh File picture of Narsingh Yadav AFP NADA will be put forward its argument tomorrow following which a decision on the matter is likely to come out During the hearing that lasted three and half hours Narsingh and his battery of lawyers presented their side of the story in front of the NADA committee and pleaded innocence Although Narsingh’s food supplements which were claimed to be tampered with are found be perfectly fine a teenage wrestler suspected to have spiked

fascinating On one hand it is one of those rare sports that treats both its male and female athletes with the same amount of reverence and respect – they both get to compete on the same platform with the same facilities in front of the same audience and are entitled to the same prize money Yet on the other hand by making men play best of five sets and women best of three it reeks of sexism Almost as if to suggest "you are just a woman how will you last five gruelling sets Your body can’t handle it" While tennis world harps about equality in reality they don’t treat men and women players alike AFP Men run a 42 km marathon Women run a 42 km marathon Men play football for 90 minutes Women play football for 90 minutes Men swim for 50m Women swim for 50m Men participate in an ultra marathon or a triathlon Women participate in an ultra marathon or a triathlon — the same distance And that is my biggest problem with major tennis tournaments While they harp about equality in reality they don’t treat men and women players alike The men play best of five sets The women best of three sets However it has not always been like this In fact between 1984-1998 the final of the WTA championships did feature women playing best of five sets One can only speculate why from 1999 onwards the WTA brought in the best of three set rule but the more important point is that professional women tennis players — in a not so distant past — did play more than three sets: 1986: Martina Navratilova beat Hana Mandlíková 6–2 6–0 3–6 6–1 1987: Steffi Graf beat Gabriela Sabatini 4–6 6–4 6–0 6–4 1989: Steffi Graf beat Martina Navratilova 6–4 7–5 2–6 6–2 1990: Monica Seles beat Gabriela Sabatini 6–4 5–7 3–6 6–4 6–2 1991: Monica Seles beat Martina Navratilova 6–4 3–6 7–5 6–0 1993: Steffi Graf beat Arantxa Sánchez Vicario 6–1 6–4 3–6 6–1 1995: Steffi Graf beat Anke Huber 6–1 2–6 6–1 4–6 6–3 1996: Steffi Graf beat Martina Hingis 6–3 4–6 6–0 4–6 6–0 1998: Martina Hingis beat Lindsay Davenport 7–5 6–4 4–6 6–2 The reason why I want a best of five sets for women is not so that the women can justify the equal pay I do not think that payment for any sport should be linked with the hours spent playing Nor do I want a best of five sets so that women can prove their physical and mental capabilities I simply want it because it would produce the best tennis Anyone who plays the game would know that most tennis players actually function like ovens and not microwaves They take time to ‘heat up’ and get in the groove Very rarely does a tennis player start firing from the word go And sometimes when you do go all guns blazing you can actually end up losing your way in the middle The serve may abandon you the backhand may start getting rusty or the volleys just stop connecting It is at that moment that you need time to regroup It is hard for any player to press the breaks introspect and come back in a best-of-three situation But in a best of five you get time to regroup It ensures that the better and not the luckier player wins Most women players are open to playing five sets What is stopping them The lack of enthusiasm from the tournament organisers A practical stumbling block for the organisers is the time constraint Scheduling two 128-strong singles draws together with doubles mixed doubles and boys & girls matches into a two-week period will be a major issue The way around that Both men and women play best of three sets till the pre quarterfinals and from the quarterfinal stage both should switch to the best of five format The joy of watching and playing a sport is when you know drama of great depth can unfold The comebacks the close finish the fight to death Legends on the sports field are made when they push themselves physically and mentally A best of thre format denies women athletes a chance to do that Coming back from a set down is pretty ordinary but winning from two sets down is what creates legends A champion needs to do something more than just the routine It is only fair that women tennis players are provided this opportunity to push themselves and elevate their game to the next level By: Indo-Asian News Service | Toronto | Published: November

siblings or cousins This will only cement the bond between them in the long run New research shows that beyond being a fun distraction social network games (SNGs) can offer family members a meaningful way to interact and meet social obligations “These interactions prove social networks are tools that break down both communication and age barriers” said researcher Kelly Boudreau research fellow at the Concordia University’s Technoculture Art and Games Centre in Quebec For the study Boudreau and senior author Mia Consalvo Canada research chair in game studies and design at the Concordia University conducted a poll among a group of social network gamers Using a questionnaire and follow-up interviews the researchers explored what it means to interact with family members via SNGs They found that these online games offer families a common topic of conversation and enhance the quality of time spent together despite the fact that most SNGs do not necessarily involve any direct communication The games can also bring together family members who may be only distantly connected with respondents citing experiences such as connecting with long-lost cousins or bolstering relationships with ageing aunts “Maintaining connections is especially important as families find themselves dispersed across countries and continents SNGs give families a convenient and cheap way to transcend geographical boundaries” added Consalvo Families that play together play the longest and have the greatest sense of duty to one another as players With online games like Candy Crush Saga increasingly replacing traditional board games SNGs are quickly becoming an important way to interact socially “It’s not just siblings in their early 20s using SNGs to connect Grandfathers are playing online games with granddaughters mothers with sons These multi-generational interactions prove social networks are tools that break down both communication and age barriers” Boudreau said The paper
