World Cup Sunday Matches

Roland Garros Novak Djokovic had a day off in the quarterfinals by Stephen Lars

The Serb Novak Djokovic had a day off on his quarterfinal round of the French Open after his opponent, Fabio Fognini, had to pull out of the competition due to an injured leg. Fognini injured a muscle in his left leg on his previous match on Sunday against Albert Montanes. He announced on earlier today that he wouldn’t be able to face the unstoppable Novak Djokovic because after a check-up, his doctors advised him no to play as it could be a fairly risky situation.
Novak Djokovic is having a run to remember. And he is just a couple of matches away from making it legendary. His numbers in 2011 are nothing short of spectacular. He has won all of the 41 games he has played this season winning every single tournament he has been into, including the Australian Open. As a matter of fact, Djokovic has won 43 straight matches overall, including the Davis Cup final in 2010 that he won for Serbia.
While trailing 7-6 and serving at 15-30 -- meaning Montanes was two points from victory -- Fognini hurt his leg. Fognini, on the other hand, beat Montanes 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 11-9 to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal. He was struggling a lot on Sunday’s game. Fognini winced in pain at the baseline after hitting a serve and show some pain on his left leg. The game was temporarily suspended. He had his leg massaged by his therapist and the game resumed, but eventually the game was suspended again. He had his left thigh wrapped in a bandage before coming back to win the game.
Djokovic's next match could be against 16-time Grand Slam champion, the legendary Roger Federer. If Djokovic wins his very demanding semifinal match, he would equal John McEnroe's Open era record for the best start to a tennis season and clinch the No. 1 ranking. I would say that could easily be considered on heck of a n achievement, specially considering that the No. 1 seed, Rafa Nadal seemed unstoppable last season, as he won three Grand Slams. If the Djoker can manage to stitch together three more wins, the second-seeded Serb will match the record of 46 straight wins set by Argentinean Guillermo Vilas.
The two-time Australian Open winner has never been too great on the clay courts. Until this season has come around. Djokovic is expected to have a very tough game against Rafael Nadal for the championship game. Nadal is currently the No. 1 seed in the world and he is going to be defending his 2010 men’s single Championship. It’s a known fact that the Spaniard is a dominant force in the clay. He gets inspired at the Roland Garros. Nadal is the king of clay. But Djokovic has been unstoppable, even in a surface where he is not the strongest. He has won 3 tournaments in this surface so far this season, including wins against Nadal in two of those tournaments final matches.
This is certainly one Roland Garros you are not going to want to miss. There is a lot in stake for both Djokovic and Nadal. And of course one must consider that Federer is still a force to be reckon with when it comes to Grand Slams.

Ireland scrumhalf Tomas O'Leary could miss all his country's November test matches after a thumb injury ruled him out for six to eight weeks, the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) said on Thursday. Munster's O'Leary, denied a place on last year's British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa through injury, will also miss the former European club champions' opening Heineken Cup match against London Irish on Saturday. Ireland face South Africa, Samoa, New Zealand and Argentina in home matches next month, the last time they will get to face southern hemisphere opposition before next year's World Cup in New Zealand.

The Ireland Rugby Union Team represents the island of Ireland (both Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) in rugby union. The team competes annually in the Six Nations Championship (which they have won eleven times outright and shared eight times) and every four years in the Rugby World Cup, where they have been eliminated at the quarter-final stage in all but two competitions (1999 and 2007). Ireland is also one of the four unions which make up the British and Irish Lions - players eligible to play for Ireland are also eligible for the Lions. Eight former Ireland players have earned induction into the International Rugby Hall of Fame, with four of them also having earned induction into the IRB Hall of Fame.

Outside centre Brian O'Driscoll, the current captain and Ireland's current all-time leader in both tries and appearances, is considered one of the best rugby players in the world and led Ireland to only their second Grand Slam in March 2009. He was also captain of the Lions on their 2005 tour of New Zealand, although his on-field captaincy was cut short by a controversial injury in the Lions' first Test. O'Driscoll was succeeded as Lions captain for their 2009 tour of South Africa by his current teammate, lock Paul O'Connell. Keith Wood, O'Driscoll's predecessor as Ireland captain before retiring in 2003, was the inaugural IRB International Player of the Year in 2001.
