6-3 on Monday to become the youngest man to reach the US Open quarter-finals since Andy Roddick in 2001 Although Rublev betrayed his young age with a couple of outbursts it was nonetheless a mature performance from the 19-year-old as he set up an intriguing last-eight showdown with world number one Rafa Nadal “Rafa is the real champion and I am going to just try and enjoy it” said Rublev looking ahead to facing one of his childhood idols “This is the quarter-finals I have nothing to lose” While 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov was becoming the darling of this year’s US Open playing on Arthur Ashe Stadium to adoring crowds it is the hardworking Rublev who is the last teenager standing Facing Goffin for the first time Rublev broke open a tight opening set breaking the Belgian at 6-5 A stung Goffin who has been hampered by a knee injury immediately broke the Russian twice to open the second on the way to a 3-0 lead leaving Rublev screaming at himself That seemed to provide the teenager with a wakeup call as he stormed through the next four games before eventually forcing a tiebreak won with a blistering cross court forehand that Goffin could only stare at as it hit the corner An aggressive Rublev then moved in for the kill breaking Goffin twice in the third to clinch a spot in the quarter-finals “I don’t know exactly what was happening” said Rublev whose path to the quarters included a second round win over seventh seed Grigor Dimitrov “I feel he had some problem with the knee then I feel a little bit more relaxed because I know now it just depends on me that if I play good I am going to win this match and this is what happened” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Garima Mishra | Pune | Published: March 11

to use to achieve higher crop yield Usually the farmers concerned make their own arrangements to visit the Krushi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) with a sample of the soil for testing To fill the gap between soil testing agencies and farmers the Department of Posts (Pune Region) recently launched postal services exclusively for soil testing in four districts — Pune Satara Solapur and Ahmednagar Watch what else is making news: The four districts include 2161 branch offices that are functional in rural areas where the majority of customers are farmers Under the initiative 30 branch offices 10 from each division have been identified in Pune Satara and Shrirampur The branch postmasters (BPMs) have been identified under the pilot project and the Satara division of KVK has agreed to impart basic training on soil testing to the BPMs The identified branch postmasters will collect the soil sample from the farm of customers who approach the post office These will be kept at the branch office and then sent to the KVK concerned The results of the test will be sent to the farmer via speedpost “The main objective is to encourage more farmers to adopt scientific ways of farming Soil testing charges will be collected from the customer” said Ganesh Sawaleshwarkar the Postmaster General of Pune Region In order to raise awareness about the service publicity material such as pamphlets and stickers will be provided by the KVKs and displayed at the branch post office premises Currently four KVKs have been identified in Baramati Satara Shrirampur and Narayangaon “Though not much time has

Kamal Davar | Updated: June 21 2014 8:23 am Pakistan’s army chief General Raheel Sharif vowed to destroy terrorist sanctuaries ‘without any discrimination’ — a reference to the selective anti-terror operations Pakistan hasbeen accused of ( Source: AP ) Related News The audacious terror strike on June 8 2014 at Pakistan’s Jinnah International Airport in Karachi which killed 36 people — including 10 terrorists of the now Mullah Fazlullah-led Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who staged the assault — was perhaps the tipping point that propelled the Nawaz Sharif government to shed its reluctance to mount an all-out counter-offensive against one of Pakistan’s major terror conglomerates That Prime Minister Sharif conscientiously strove for peace talks with Pakistan’s main terror “tanzeem” the TTP — considering that his political formation the PML-N allegedly had durable links since years with some Pakistani extremists — was understandable That a majority of these fundamentalist elements especially in Punjab electorally assisted the PML-N in the last general elections is hardly a political secret On the other hand the Pakistani army and its notorious handmaiden the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) — themselves formidable practitioners of the art of exporting terror to neighbouring India and Afghanistan — were persistently demanding strong action exclusively against the TTP for it had been striking at will against army assets all across Pakistan including the daring and devastating attack on the strategic naval air base at Mehran Karachi in May 2011 Meanwhile the Pakistan army and the ISI for decades have conveniently disregarded other equally lethal extremists in anti-India terror groups such as the Hafiz Saeed-led Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen as also the Afghan Taliban the Haqqani Network and al-Qaeda elements which it considers its “strategic assets” Till last year the Pakistani army had mounted only half-hearted attacks in the restive Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) including the rugged Waziristan regions that have been a haven for terrorists of all hues — both indigenous Pakistanis and foreign militants operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan on both sides of the Durand Line Most casualties inflicted on terrorists in the North and South Waziristan sanctuaries can be attributed to the US drone strikes since 2008 which have caused many deaths among both extremists and civilians However this year under pressure from the Pakistan government the US has resorted to only the odd strike That Washington with its planned draw-down in Afghanistan has pressured the Pakistani military machine to up the ante against terror groups holed up in the Waziristan belt would be stating the obvious Presumably with Pakistan’s economy in the doldrums coupled with an alarmingly deteriorating internal security situation and generous financial doles promised by the US the army would have agreed to bite the bullet at long last and resolutely go after the TTP and ostensibly the other terror groups too In February this year Pakistan formally unveiled its National Security Document that laid out in some detail Pakistan’s anti-terror policy Despite a few off and on peace talks and ceasefires between the unyielding TTP and the Pakistani establishment PM Sharif finally gave the green signal for the Pakistani armed forces to mount an all-out offensive against all terrorists in the North Waziristan belt Thus Operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched with all ferocity on June 15 employing nearly 30000 troops The operation is significantly named after one of the Prophet’s swords “Azb” which he had used in the battles of Badr and With Pakistani F-16 fighter jets pounding militant hideouts in North Waziristan tanks also rolled through the streets of Miramshah North Waziristan’s main town Thousands of civilians of this town and the neighbouring villages have fled to safer areas to avoid the impending ground offensive The army has also liberally employed lethal multi-barrel rocket launchers heavy artillery and attack helicopters unmindful of the collateral damage that could occur Media reports point to over 200 militants having been killed in the first 36 hours of the offensive including Uzbek terror kingpin Abu al-Manni who reportedly had masterminded the Karachi airport attack Pakistan’s army chief General Raheel Sharif vowed to destroy terrorist sanctuaries “without any discrimination” — a reference to the selective anti-terror operations the Pakistan army has been accused of Meanwhile TTP spokesman Shahidullah Shahid immediately retaliated saying that “By God we will soon shake your palaces in Islamabad and Lahore and burn those to ashes” The Pakistani establishment expecting violent retributive acts by the Taliban has deployed large numbers of security personnel to guard sensitive assets across the country The otherwise delayed anti-terror offensive has closed ranks perhaps for the first time in many years among Pakistan’s major political parties and civil society Even Imran Khan of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf the hitherto recalcitrant opponent of offensives against the TTP has welcomed the government’s decision as have other major parties including the PPP and MQM If Pakistan can truly discard terrorism as an extension of state policy — against both India and Afghanistan — and not be selective in combating terror groups India will wish it all success in ridding itself of the scourge decimating its vitals Pakistan today stands at the

Rohan Bopanna’s bid to enter his maiden Wimbledon doubles final came to a disappointing end as he along with his Romanian partner Florin Mergea lost a marathon five-setter against fourth seeded Dutch-Romanian pair of Jean Julien-Rojer and Horia Tecau Julien-Rojer and Tecau won 4-6 6-2 6-3 4-6 13-11 in a contest that went on for three hours and 23 minutes Bopanna (L) and Mergea fought hard but fell 11-9 in the fifth set in the semifinals AFP Photos For Bopanna it was yet again a case of being so near yet so far after he lost another marathon five-setter semi-final back in 2013 Ironically his partner was Julien-Rojer who ended up on the winning side today The final set turned out to be a battle of patience for both pairs as they held their respective services for 23 games It was in the 24th game of the fifth set that the Indo-Romanian pair was broken and the match ended there itself The match started with Bopanna being broken in the very first game but Mergea’s good returns saw them break back The pair also broke Tecau to take the first set at 6-4 In the second set it was the turn of the Dutch-Romanian pair to get a double break and win the set easily by 6-2 margin The third set went nearly on similar lines as Bopanna-Mergea were broken once and lost the set at 3-6 Down 1-2 the Indo-Romanian pair came back strongly in the fourth set winning the coveted break and taking it at 6-4 However Bopanna despite his booming serves was not in his element as he made too many unforced errors both at the net and from the baseline In all the pair committed 12

the dropping of two of MGP’s members from the Laxmikant Parsekar Cabinet Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said the party is in talks with BJP’s estranged alliance partner to have an electoral agreement but they are in "initial stages" The party already has a pre-poll alliance with rebel RSS leader Subhash Velingkar’s Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM) for the upcoming polls On 13 December Parsekar dropped two MGP ministers from his Cabinet to "prevent the BJP cadres from getting demoralised" by their outbursts in the poll-bound state even as the ally chose to continue support to the government citing "coalition dharma" Sanjay Raut CNN-News 18 "Goa needs a change from the BJP-led government We already have a pre-poll alliance with Velingkar We are also in talks with the MGP and looking for a grand alliance in the state Velingkar is also in talks with the MGP" Raut said Sources said the party is in the process of finalising the manifesto along with GSM Interestingly the Shiv Sena despite having its bastion in Konkan could never leave its footprints in neighbouring Goa in terms of winning seats This was primarily because of the language issue While the Shiv Sena bats for Marathi Goa is primarily a Konkani state In 2012 the party contested on three seats and could poll only 210 votes together In 2007 it contested on seven seats and polled 1049 votes Its performance was slightly better in 2002 where it contested 15 seats and bagged 4946 votes In his rally on 22 October Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackarey took a jibe at BJP saying the party made a mistake by letting and helping the saffron party grow in Goa else it would have had its leader as chief minister long back Ever since BJP and the Shiv Sena severed their relations ahead of 2014 assembly polls breaking their 25-year-old alliance equations between the two parties have not been the same The Sena now a junior partner in the BJP-led government in Maharashtra is seen as an "opposition" rather than alliance member It is also not happy with the portfolio alloted to it despite being the second largest party in the NDA after BJP The party has already announced that it would be contest around 200 seats in Uttar Pradesh In about an hour after Ram Gopal Yadav landed at the Election Commission office in New Delhi to claim that he and Akhilesh Yadav were the ones who commanded the Samajwadi Party and have the right to retain the party’s poll symbol cycle and persuade the EC to reject similar claims made by Mulayam Singh Yadav another interesting development took place in Lucknow again with some loaded implications for the pari-War and state politics Son Akhilesh Yadav drove to father Mulayam Singh’s residence in Lucknow to negotiate a truce formula The meeting gave rise to another round of speculations: what could be the possible peace formula how long does the latest agreement last and who in the family or outside could be made a sacrificial lamb Akhilesh Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav There aren’t many doubts that father Mulayam and son Akhilesh would ultimately stand united After all blood is thicker than water It was Mulayam who had decided to anoint Akhilesh as the chief minister of the most populous state of Indian union despite the fact that the latter didn’t have required maturity age and experience to lead this politically critical state All twists and turns and a no-holds-barred family war played out in the public have led to the singular fact that Akhilesh has emerged stronger than he was six months ago Whether it was by Mulayam’s design or otherwise the fact remains that Akhilesh has his political inheritance to greater heights irrespective of win or loss in coming elections He has been a worthy inheritor of Mulayam’s legacy in all its forms and substance — sam daam dand ved The question then arises is what would happen to two uncles Shivpal and Ram Gopal should father and son call a truce Shivpal appears tough and talks like a ruthless executioner who loves to flaunt his muscle Ram Gopal presents a curious case though The "Professor " has been soft suave educated and an articulate face of the Samajwadi Party someone who is famed to have written the constitution of the party but it’s his newly acquired image of Akhilesh’s political Guru backroom architect of Akhilesh’s moves a Chankaya for "Chandragupta" Akhilesh aka Tipu the Sultan is more important for current analysis Will Akhilesh still need Chanakya Ram Gopal by his side when his supremacy within the Samajwadi Party is established and father Mulayam yet again takes over all possible roles to promote son Nobody can have an answer to that but contemporary history is not on his side Modern day Chanakyas across the political spectrum have thrived for a while but contemporary history is full of characters who were either dumped or sidelined Take Congress for instance Till two years ago Digvijay Singh was considered to be Rahul Gandhi’s political guru his Chanakya The man who would always be by Congress vice president’s side his remarks taken as an aberration on Day One would be taken as the official line of the party in days to follow He took Gandhi for a surprise bike ride cum-dharna at Bhatta Parsaul in UP in the run-up to the last assembly election in UP With Digvijay by his side Rahul had claimed that the then Mayawati-led government had killed farmers in that area and mounds of ashes in those villages contained human body remains His claims fell flat as no body part was found there Digvijay took him to Azamgarh and all other places in UP where he thought Rahul’s secularist credentials as well as his image of a prince who thrived on princely perks and privileges but was a rebel in his own right could work But it all bombed in the UP election 2012 and all other state assembly and parliamentary elections that were held since then Since then Digvijay has been trying to find peace in world matters and his political interventions are mostly limited to
