Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Mum's 'Deliciano' tweet for rival Feliciano Lopez embarrasses Murray

London -  British tennis star Andy Murray had to tell his mother Judy to stop embarrassing him in front of rival Feliciano Lopez after she dubbed the Spaniard 'Deliciano' on Twitter.

After his four-set win over Ivan Ljubicic, Murray posted a twitter message saying,  "I think it's about time she stopped that nonsense. It's making me throw up - it's disgusting," The Sun reports.  

The situation was especially awkward because Murray has known Lopez for many years.

"I was practicing with him before the tournament," Murray said.
In the event that both Murray and Lopez win their fourth-round matches, they will go head to head in the last eight next Wednesday.

Feliciano Lopez, however, said he is happy to be a Wimbledon heartthrob after being nicknamed "Deliciano" by the mother of British ace Andy Murray.

Lopez caught the eyes of all at the All England Club on Friday with a shock 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 victory over three-time finalist Andy Roddick in the third round.
