MORE ON SPORTS PG Djokovic lets emotions show at US Open as Grand Slam nears NEW YORK : Novak Djokovic did not seek to keep his thoughts to himself on court, the way he mostly did through his first two U.S. Open matches. Instead, he let it all out, slapping his chest or sneering with a fist raised to celebrate success, pointing to his ear to ask the crowd for noise. This was the Djokovic everyone is so accustomed to seeing yes, winning on the Grand Slam stage, of course, as he always does in this magical season, but also animated and into it, encouraging the spectators to join him for the ride on his path toward tennis history. Taking another step in his bid to complete the first calendar-year Slam by a man in more than a half-century, Djokovic moved into the fourth round at Flushing Meadows for the 14th consecutive appearance, coming back to beat Kei Nishikori 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday. I don't plan to have those kind of emotional moments on the court, whether good or bad. It just happens, Djokovic said. In the heat of the battle, when you feel like the moment is very important ... you just want to get those things out of yourself, out of your system try to, I guess, ride on that energy wave that you create, whether it's with yourself, whether it's with the crowd. Djokovic, a 34-year-old from Serbia who is ranked No. 1, is now 24-0 in the sport's four most important events this season, having won the Australian Open in February, the French Open in June and Wimbledon in July. The last man to go 4 for 4 at the majors was Rod Laver in 1969; Steffi Graf was the last woman, in 1988. Win four more matches next week, and Djokovic also would earn his 21st career Slam trophy, breaking the men's mark he currently shares with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. I would not be honest fully if I told you I don't think or I don't believe or I don't visualize that I can win every single Grand Slam that I play in, Djokovic said. I'm not surprised when I win Slams and big tournaments because that's always a goal." It was in the fourth round last year that Djokovic's U.S. Open ended, defaulted late in the first set for hitting a ball after ceding a game and inadvertently hitting a line judge in the throat. Now he'll play 20-year-old American wild-card entry Jenson Brooksby or 21st-seeded Aslan Karatsev, an Australian Open semifinalist this year. Other players advancing on a sunny Saturday included Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini and No. 13 Jannik Sinner they gave Italy a pair of men in the U.S. Open's fourth round for the first time in the event's 140-year history along with Olympic women's gold medalist Belinda Bencic, 2019 U.S. Open champion Bianca Andreescu, 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek, two-time major finalist Karolina Pliskova and 18-year-old Emma Raducanu of Britain. No. 1 Ash Barty and Tokyo Games men's champion Alexander Zverev were scheduled to play in the night session. After eliminating a couple of inexperienced opponents ranked 121st and 145th, Djokovic faced someone with a far better resume in Nishikori, who was the runner-up at the 2014 U.S. Open and has been as high as No. 4. Here, though, was the problem for Nishikori heading into this encounter: He'd lost his last 16 matches against Djokovic.

Notably, in July, Bhagwat had addressed an event organised by Muslim Rashtriya Manch in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad.

People of India have the same DNA." I’ll come to India for my next novel: Salman Rushdie NEW DELHI: After having spent years away from the country, British-American author Salman Rushdie finally plans to return to India for his next book. The Booker prize winner, who was speaking at a session of the ongoing Times Litfest, said his next novel is likely to be set in India for which he will have to come back. "The last ten years I have mostly written these westernbased novels, these novels mostly based in America, a little bit of England, I think it might be time to come back to India. I think the next book appears to be an Indian novel. "It's in a very early stage, so let me get a little further. But it looks like it'll be entirely set in India, which means I have to come to India. It's been very long," Rushdie said. The author last came to India for the promotion of Deepa Mehta's 2013 film "Midnight's Children", which was based on Rushdie's Booker winning book of the same name. Rushdie's visits to India have often been embroiled in controversy since his 1988 book "Satanic Verses" caused international religious ire, following which he refrained from visiting the country. Talking about coming back to India, the author, who calls himself a "Bombay boy", said religious objections or security hassle --- made his coming back to the country "quite difficult". "Sometimes it is made quite difficult for me to come to India and that can be off putting. Sometimes that's because of religious objections or sometimes it's because of me being engulfed in a kind of security operation that makes it actually impossible for me to be there really," the 74-year-old author said. However, he promised to return once the world "opened up a little bit". "So it just became difficult for me and it's sad because it matters a lot to me. I'll be back, I'll be back. Let the world open up a little bit," he said. TALIBAN KILL FEMALE POLICE OFFICER IN FRONT OF HER RELATIVES NEW DELHI: Taliban militants in Afghanistan have shot dead a policewoman in a provincial city, BBC has reported. The woman, named in local media as Banu Negar, was killed at the family home in front of relatives in Firozkoh, the capital of central Ghor province. The killing comes amid increasing reports of escalating repression of women in Afghanistan. Details of the incident are still sketchy as many in Firozkoh fear retribution if they speak out. But three sources have told the BBC that the Taliban beat and shot dead Negar in front of her husband and children on Saturday. Relatives supplied graphic images showing blood spattered on a wall in the corner of a room and a body, the face heavily disfigured, the report added. The family say Negar, who worked at the local prison, was eight months pregnant. Three gunmen arrived at the house on Saturday and searched it before tying members of the family up, relatives say. The intruders were heard speaking Arabic, a witness said. The Taliban told the BBC they had no involvement in Negar's death and are investigating the incident. Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said: "We are aware of the incident and I am confirming that the Taliban have not killed her, our investigation is ongoing." Mamata Banerjee to contest Bhawanipore by-poll MI NEWS SERVICE KOLKATA: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) announced on Sunday that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be the party's candidate in the Bhawanipore constituency for the upcoming West Bengal Assembly by-poll there on September 30. The party also named candidates for the other two constituencies that will go to vote on the same day. Jakir Hossain will be the TMC candidate in Jangipur while Amirul Islam will contest on TMC's ticket in Samserganj. The Election Commission of India (ECI) had declared on Saturday that the by-poll in Bhawanipore and polling for three "deferred adjourned elections" in two assembly seats of West Bengal and one of Orissa would take place on September 30. The Bhawanipore by-poll will allow Mamata Banerjee CM inaugurates Durand Cup football tournament at VYBK in Kolkata on Sunday a chance to become a member of the State Legislative Assembly. During the West Bengal Assembly polls earlier this year, she had lost in Nandigram to his former close aide Suvendu Adhikari who fought on a BJP ticket. Meanwhile, TMC's Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay had won from Bhawanipore. However, he vacated the seat soon after to allow it to go to by-poll for Mamata Banerjee to contest from there. After days of asserting tacit pressure, the TMC welcomed the ECI's decision to hold the Bhawanipore bypoll. "We are happy that the dates have been announced. We had declared earlier that Mamata Banerjee will be contesting from Bhawanipore. We will make sure that she wins by a record margin," said senior TMC leader and Bengal cabinet minister Partha Chatterjee. On the other hand, BJP slammed the commission for its decision to hold by-poll in Bhawanipore only. The poll body did not announce dates for by-polls in four other Bengal Assembly constituencies where the seats remain vacant. Govt ‘having fun’ selling national ‘BJP using ED, assets built by Nehru: Shiv Sena CBI for vindictive politics’ MUMBAI: In a sharp attack on the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre, the Shiv Sena on Sunday said that the 'long-term vision' of the late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru saved the country from the current economic disaster it is reeling under and the present government is now enjoying selling the national assets he created. "The BJP government may have differences with Sonia Gandhi, Rahul or Priyanka, but why this hatred for Nehru? The institutions created by Nehru are being sold by the present government to give a fillip to the economy," said Sena MP and Chief Spokesperson Sanjay Raut. His comments came over the dropping of photos of India's first Prime Minister Nehru and the country's first Education Minister Maulana Abul Kalam Azad from a promotional released by the Union Education Ministry's Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) on the 75th year celebrations of India's Independence, sparking a row recently. Dwelling on Nehru's nation-building legacy, Raut asserted that "the government is now having fun selling off the national assets created by him, otherwise the country would be starving, people would be jobless and there would have anarchy". "You should be forever indebted to Nehru but instead, you have wiped out his very role in the Freedom Movement. Why so much animosity towards Nehru. You must reply to the country," Raut said. Slamming the Central government for the act in his weekly column 'Rokthok' in the party newspaper 'Saamna' Group, Raut said without the contributions of Nehru and Azad, the history of Indian Freedom Movement "will never be complete". "Only those who cannot make history consider it a bravado to erase the history of others. Those who kept far away from and never participated in the Freedom Struggle are now trying to keep out one of the heroes of the Independence Movement. This is not proper," he said. "You may have political differences with Nehru's party (Congress), or his politics or his domestic and foreign policies. But to remove his contributions to the country's freedom struggle in this manner is an insult to each freedom-fighter," Raut added without mincing words. MI NEWS SERVICE KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Sunday accused the BJP of doing "vindictive politics" and said it could not fight TMC politically so they are using central probe agencies like the Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation. Speaking to mediapersons, Banerjee said, "I am ready to face any investigation. If they can produce evidence against me, then there is no need to use ED and CBI against me. I am even ready to be hanged. Why are not they bringing any proof in front of the public?" "They (BJP) could not fight TMC politically so now they have come down to vindictive politics. They are using probe agencies to further their political interests. I urge BJP leaders to sit with me for 5 minutes. If I am not able to expose them, I will not step foot into the political arena again. ED and CBI turn a blind eye when it comes to those caught on camera accepting bribes," he stated. Notably, Abhishek Banerjee will appear before the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi tomorrow in connection with the coal mining scam. The wife of Abhishek Banerjee, Rujira Banerjee was also summoned by ED on September 1 along with others with their bank details.
