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.

Pattaya Open: Sania out of singles, doubles hopes alive

[+] Text [-]

Pattaya -  Sania Mirza's campaign in the singles of the WTA Pattaya Open tennis ended Friday with her 5-7, 3-6 quarterfinal defeat to Chinese Taipei qualifier Su-Wei Hsieh. The Indian, however, kept alive her title hopes by making the semifinals of the doubles.

Sania, ranked 111, went down to talented Su-Wei in 80 minutes.

But in the doubles, she paired with her Australian partner Anastasia Rodionova to beat local girls Varatchaya and Varunya Wongteanchai 6-4, 6-3 in the last-eight stage match.

The top-seeded pair maintained their domination in the match. They now face third seeds Akgul Amanmuradova of Uzbekistan and Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan.
