first_imgIndian boxers had some contrasting results on Friday night and Saturday. It was absurd to see Vikas Krishan initially winning the bout against American Errol Spence and then losing it after the decision was overturned by the AIBA judges’ panel.But Laishram Devendro’s prequarterfinal victory over 2009 world champion and Beijing Olympic silver medallist, Serdamba Purevdorj of Mongolia, brought some cheer to the Indian contingent.Since it is the AIBA panel, which has overturned Vikas’s result, and India’s protest has also been turned down, the decision can’t be questioned. But the worst part in the whole incident was the role of the referee present in the ring during the bout.According to the AIBA panel, Vikas had committed many fouls which the referee didn’t notice. But my point is if a referee is eligible enough to stand in an Olympic bout, how can he be so ignorant? How can he overlook so many things? I think he had no right to stand there and should be suspended for this kind of performance.Can you imagine the psychological condition of the boxer who is declared the winner in an Olympic bout and then suddenly told that he has lost? For Vikas, the four-year long Olympic dream was shattered within moments.But kudos to Devendro for the quality game he displayed against a world champion. The coaches must have told him to maintain a big lead throughout the bout, especially after Vikas’s result. With his electrifying movements and lightning punches, he had a lead of three points after the second round. It was a treat to watch Devendro made and his natural style of attacking game has so far been a nightmare for his opponents. I think he should continue his natural game in the bouts to come.advertisementIndian boxers should also take lessons from Vikas and Sumit Sangwan’s defeats. Those who are still in the fray, should make it a point to maintain a good lead. And for it, they should play their natural game.(Mohammad Ali Qamar is a 2002 Commonwealth Games gold medallist)last_img read more

I want to play tennis, but not with the hip I have right now,” he said.The ATP Tour posted a tweet in support for Murray: “Get well soon Andy, we know you will do everything to get back on tour!”advertisementYesterday @andy_murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery in London.Get well soon Andy, we know you will do everything to get back on tour! #GetwellsoonAndyMurray pic.twitter.com/edP9bhpLQYATP Tour (@ATP_Tour) January 29, 2019Three-time Grand Slam champion, Murray initially had surgery on his right hip in January 2018 and has played 15 matches since returning to action last June.He was due to play in next month’s Marseille Open but withdrew from the tournament last week.Also Read | Maybe I’ll see you again: Andy Murray told Australian Open crowd after Round 1 exitAlso Read | Andy Murray slams Britain Lawn Tennis Association for failing to build on his successAlso Read | Andy Murray can come back from hip surgery, says doubles legend Bob Bryanlast_img read more
