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.

Bellucci to challenge Seppi in Moscow final

Moscow - Brazilian No.1 Thomaz Bellucci beat big-serving Croatian veteran Ivo Karlovic and won through to face Italy's Andreas Seppi in the final of the Kremlin Cup here.

Fourth seed Bellucci came back from a set down to take the semifinal to a decider before errors from Karlovic allowed him to complete a 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-4 win Saturday.

"I was really playing under pressure so for me it's very special," Bellucci said of his first indoor semifinal win.

Earlier Saturday, Seppi ousted Tunisia's Malek Jaziri with a dominant performance in a 6-3, 6-1 win.

"Tomorrow it will be a completely different match," Bellucci said.

"It's going to be a lot of rallies. Seppi's very good playing the baseline, so it will be very tough for me to beat him."

Bellucci, 24, is chasing his second title in four finals this season after winning in Gstaad in July. Victory in Moscow would be the fourth title of his ATP career.
