Tennis is a big dream in Rahim's eyes
As a child, Ramhim Lian Bom dreamed of becoming a pilot. But the dream of a 17-year-old boy from Bandarban changed with his addiction to table tennis. Source Electricity has not yet reached Bampara, near Boga Lake, 60 km from Bandarban city. No touches of modernity. Sports facilities are also inadequate. Ramhim, who came up from there, has already built a reputation. Bangladesh national table tennis team got the first chance among the players of small nationalities. Ramheem boarded a flight to Qatar with six players from the national team to play in the Asian Table Tennis Championships yesterday. Ramhim's pastor father, Juamdo Bommer, had to work hard to support his wife and six children. Lama's eldest son Ramhim was admitted to the unpaid Quantum Cosmo School because his financial situation was not good. While studying in this school, Ramhim used to take part in various cultural activities. In 2013, the school took the initiative to teach table tennis to the students. Enayet Hossain, the then Secretary of the Development Committee of the Table Tennis Federation assisted in this. From Dhaka, he used to send lamas, coaches and coaches to the school. The funny thing is, Ramhim has never seen a table tennis table before handcuffs in the game! While platoon martyr Tajuddin was standing indoors, Ramhim was reminiscing, ‘When the table was first set for the game, I thought, what a game it is again! After that, Sarera left Dhaka and taught hand-to-hand play. Ramhim learned the language of table tennis bat-ball very quickly. He used to practice for 2 hours in the morning and afternoon at school. In 2014, he got his first success at the National Junior Championship, winning bronze. In 2017, he became the champion in BKSP Cup. In 2019, the federation sent Ramhim to Delhi for advanced training. Ramhim was instrumental in making Quantum Cosmo School the double champion in the annual inter-school and madrasa sports competition held in Comilla last year. Bangladesh Police became runners-up in the Premier TT League in February this year. Ramhim played in that team. Then last April, the police won the boys team gold at the Bangladesh Games TT. Ramhim played well there too. He finished fourth in the Federation Cup TT, which ended on September 4, and got his first chance to wear a national team jersey. Officials of Bangladesh Table Tennis Federation are satisfied after winning silver in SA Games Table Tennis. But the bold utterance in Ramhim’s voice, ‘Sirra said, silver has to be won in SA games. But I say, we want to win gold, not silver. I am practicing hard with that dream. Ramhim is the first player in the family. But he is the one who played table tennis and handed over one lakh rupees to his father last season. Ramhim is happy to be able to help his father to bring back the prosperity of the world. Before going out to play for the first time, he was in a state of shock, ‘I didn’t believe at first that I got a chance in the national team. I want to play my best to keep the honor of this jersey. Bandarban, Boga Lake: Everyone knows these places for their natural beauty. If Ramhim's dream of table tennis is fulfilled, maybe one day people will recognize this remote area of ​​Chittagong Hill Tracts by his name.

Roger Federer to retire?
For Roger Federer, no retirement in sight: "I'm sure I'll notice when the time comes" Roger Federer is staying the course. At the age of 40 and still recovering from a third knee operation, the Swiss tennis player has no plans to end his career, as he told Blick in an interview. The former world number one has not played since his quarter-final loss to Hubert Hurkacz at Wimbledon. Roger Federer may be 40 years old, he may have played only 13 matches this season and he may be nursing a third knee operation, but it is still not time to talk about retirement. While he continues to rehabilitate and has not set a return date for the time being, the Swiss player suggested that he still has no intention of putting away his racket. "The best possible end to my career? That doesn't exist for me," he said in an interview with Swiss media outlet Blick. But I would like to be able to choose the moment myself. I'm sure I'll notice when that time comes." Since announcing that he would have to undergo another surgery, the third in just under two years, the former world number one has always felt capable of returning to the level and the courts. For all that, if he continues to put it off, it's certainly not out of apprehension. "I'm not afraid of the time after my professional career," he assured. It will be a smooth transition. Mirka and I have done an incredible job of balancing tennis, family and friends, which almost makes me the proudest. After all, what's really important in life?" Clearly, Federer still plans to juggle all three parts of his life.

Nadal clashes Djokovic in enormous debate
For Rafael Nadal, refusing to be vaccinated can be "a little selfish posture" Rafael Nadal once again reiterated how much he supports vaccination, this Saturday, in an interview relayed by Marca, after being asked about the health situation in Spain. The Majorcan believes that refusing to be vaccinated can be "a bit of a selfish posture". His opinion on the issue contrasts with that of Novak Djokovic. It's a subject around which Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have been clashing for several months. While the Serb has already made it known that he would not communicate about his own vaccination status, several months after revealing that he is not "for vaccines", the Spaniard addressed the issue again this Saturday in an interview with Marca. "I understand that some people do not want to be vaccinated, but it seems to me a bit of a selfish posture," said the Majorcan after being asked about the health situation in Spain. We do not know 100% of the effects of vaccines, but we must trust the doctors. Because what we do know are the effects of the virus when we are not vaccinated." A little over a year ago, after the heated controversy raised by Djokovic's comments, the Manacor Bull allowed himself a little reframing. "Nobody can force anyone. Everyone is free," he told the Spanish daily La Voz de Galicia on Monday. But if you belong to a circuit that has rules, if they require you to vaccinate yourself to protect everyone else, then Djokovic will have to vaccinate himself if he wants to continue playing at the highest level. That goes for me as well." For now, the presence of Novak Djokovic in Melbourne, next January, to play the Australian Open, is very uncertain, as the local authorities have already made it known that vaccination would be mandatory to enter the country

ATP Masters: master Djokovic wants to complete a year of records
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is in Turin (November 14-21) to complete a year 2021 of records, matching that of victories at the Masters, this competition that brings together the eight best players of the season and where he aims for a sixth title like Roger Federer. The 2021 Masters, which will be held for the first time in Turin (Italy) after twelve editions in London, will be for the first time since 2016 without the two legends Federer and Rafael Nadal. During a particularly successful year in 2021 (5 titles, including 3 Grand Slams, out of 11 tournaments played), Djokovic broke the records for weeks spent as world No. 1 (347 on Monday), seasons completed at the top of the world rankings (7). He equaled the record for major titles (20) by winning the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon, before failing to win the calendar Grand Slam in the US Open final against Russian Daniil Medvedev. Winning his 37th Masters 1000 on Sunday in Paris, he broke the record for most wins in this category of tournaments. Yet he hasn't won the Masters since 2015. - Question of energy - "In the first part of my career, it was one of the tournaments where I was most successful, I even won it three times in a row (actually four, from 2012 to 2015 after a first title in 2008, ed.), recalled Friday the 34-year-old player. Now, I may not have the energy reserve needed at the end of the season. This explains, according to him, why the last editions of the Masters were won by younger players. "Dimitrov, Tsitsipas, Zverev, who have won the Masters in recent years, won their first major title there. It was maybe the first, second or third time they qualified, they were fresh, motivated, didn't have much to lose unlike some of us who had been there for a while," the Serbian said. This year, he has certainly played fewer tournaments than in the past, but those he has played have been "exhausting physically, mentally and emotionally, especially those of the Grand Slam (...) because of the possibility of making history. - New wave - While he dominated the season, the next generation of players was increasingly pressing: Daniil Medvedev (25), winner of the 2020 Masters, won his first Major in New York, Alexander Zverev (24) won two Masters 1000 (Madrid and Cincinnati) as well as the Olympic gold medal in Tokyo, Stefanos Tsitsipas won his first Masters 1000 (Monte Carlo) and led two sets to nil against Djokovic in the final at Roland Garros. "I've been playing well this year, I've won five tournaments and I'm the only one who has won multiple Masters 1000s. So I didn't come here just to participate!" warned Zverev. Unlike the London crowd, which had no homegrown kid to support since 2016 and Andy Murray's coronation, the Turin crowd will be behind Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini. "I feel pressure, but it's good pressure. I know the public will be on my side," he commented. Rounding out the field is 24-year-old Russian Andrey Rublev, a finalist in Monte Carlo and Cincinnati this year, who has qualified for the second year in a row. Making their debut in this "Masters' tournament" will be Poland's Hubert Hurkacz, 24, winner in Miami and who defeated Federer in the quarters at Wimbledon, defeating him 6-0 in the third set, as well as Norway's Casper Ruud, 22 and winner of five titles this year.

Turin ATP Finals Presentations
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who will start Sunday in Turin in search of a sixth Masters win to match record-holder Roger Federer, will face Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud in his group, according to the draw made Thursday night. In the other group, world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, winner of last year's Masters, will face Alexander Zverev, Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz. The Tennis Masters, which brings together the eight best players of each season at the end of the year, is played in Turin from this year until 2025, after twelve editions played in London. "Nole", five-time winner of the event (2008, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015), has the opportunity to continue collecting records in case of new success to join Federer on the shelves, crowned six times. The Serb can play with a clear head, as he is now assured of finishing the year at the top of the world rankings for the seventh time in his career after his success last Sunday at the Paris Masters 1000. And this before his last appointment of the year: the Davis Cup (November 25-December 5), for the second edition of its revisited formula. "Djoko, the only 30-year-old in a tournament where the seven other participants are 25 years old or younger, will meet for the first time in his group (green) the Russian Andrey Rublev (N.5), who could have been on his way to Paris (in the quarters) if he had not fallen in the second round against the American Taylor Fritz. In the other group, the red one, Russian Daniil Medvedev will meet German Alexander Zverev (N.3), whom he beat in the semifinals in Bercy (6-2, 6-2) before losing to Djokovic in the final. The defending Masters champion will face Italy's Matteo Berrettini, the No. 1 player in the ATP rankings, who is expected to get a big boost from the fans in Turin. Turin will be the 15th city, the first in Italy, to host this tournament created in 1970. The matches will take place from Sunday until November 21 at the Pala Alpitour, presented as the largest indoor stadium in Italy. This multi-sports complex was built for the 2006 Winter Olympics (it hosted the ice hockey competition).
