Mumbai | Published: May 31, For many years, While the state Education Department is in the process of providing employment to the teachers, During the brief meeting, But it’ll be nice to have a team from there, says Hockey India secretary general Narinder Batra For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew York USA:Gael Monfils faces world number one Novak Djokovic on Friday for a place in the US Open final determined to shed his image as the court jester of tennis The 30-year-old Frenchman is regarded as the sport’s most enthusiastic showman happily hurling himself to the left or right to retrieve a ball Already this tournament he has shown off his repertoire of eccentricities from colliding with a court side clock which came close to falling on top of him to celebrating his birthday by playing a game of ‘boules’ on rain-lashed practice courts Novak Djokovic AP Win or lose Friday — and with a career record of 0-12 against Djokovic the latter seems more likely — Monfils insists that enjoying himself on court will always remain key "I play tennis because I have fun I play tennis because I love the sport If not I won’t wake up every morning and train because most of people think that jumping or do the trick shot is gifted" said the 10th seed "Yes it’s gifted but is also a lot of work I won’t say I work on the trick shot but it’s like I think physically I’m one of the best "And to do that is because you’re in a great shape If I don’t have funny I stop playing tennis for sure" But there is also unfinished business for Monfils on Friday at Flushing Meadows Two years ago he led Roger Federer by two sets to love and held two match points before he allowed the Swiss legend to fight back and win an epic quarter-final When he made his debut at the US Open in 2005 Djokovic was his first round opponent and the Serb overcame cramps and shoulder pain to win in five sets Nishikori faces Wawrinka Djokovic has been on top ever since including a straight sets win in New York in the 2010 quarter-finals Two-time US Open champion Djokovic chasing a third major of the season and 13th overall remains wary of the dangers posed by Monfils whose only other appearance in a Slam semi-final was at the 2008 French Open "Gael’s one of the few players that I will definitely pay a ticket to watch" saidDjokovic playing in a 10th successive semi-final at the US Open "He seems more focused at this time of his career and I am definitely expecting a tough battle" Monfils is enjoying one of the best spells of his career winning the title in Washington and making the semi-finals at the Toronto Masters where again he lost to Djokovic Djokovic should be the fresher having completed just two full matches in five rounds He was handed a walkover into round three and was then the beneficiary of two injury-hit retirements All of which means the Serb has spent just 4 hours and 34 minutes on court; Monfils has been out there four minutes short of 12 hours Friday’s other semi-final sees Japanese sixth seed Kei Nishikori face former Australian and French Open champion Stan Wawrinka Nishikori reached the semi-final — his first at any Slam since he finished runner-up in New York in 2014 — with an impressive five-set triumph over world number two and 2012 champion Andy Murray It was just his second win in nine matches with the Briton but he is happy chasing down deficits Against Wawrinka he trails 3-2 but won their last meeting in the Toronto semi-finals this summer He also beat the 31-year-old in five sets in the quarter-finals of the US Open in 2014 Third seed Wawrinka has had a roller-coaster run to the semi-finals In his first five rounds he did not face an opponent inside the top 45 while he had to save a match point to beat Britain’s Dan Evans in the third round "It’s going to be interesting for sure against Kei" said Wawrinka the late bloomer of the men’s tour who only reached his first quarter-final of a Slam at the 23rd attempt in the 2010 US Open London: Arsene Wenger avoided more humiliation as Arsenal moved into the FA Cup semi-finals with a 5-0 win against minnows Lincoln City while Manchester City joined the Gunners in the last four after a 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough on Saturday Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey centre is congratulated by Alexis Sanchez after scoring against Lincoln City AP Under heavy fire after Tuesday’s dismal Champions League exit against Bayern Munich Wenger was given some much-needed breathing space by his side’s quarter-final victory over the non-leaguers Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud bagged Arsenal’s first two goals at the Emirates Stadium before Luke Waterfall’s own goal Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey were also on the scoresheet as Arsenal sealed their place in next month’s semi-finals at Wembley "Let’s not talk about me I think we have done that far too much over these past few weeks I have shown loyalty and my preference is always here" Wenger said "We had a big disappointment in the Champions League After that we had to respond and we needed players who were solid mentally Recently we have disappointed our fans We want to go again to Wembley to win" For the second time in five days Arsenal fans staged a pre-match protest march calling for Wenger to resign and the Frenchman could ill afford what would have been the FA Cup’s greatest upset Fifth-tier leaders Lincoln were the first non-league team to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals in 103 years after a shock win over top-flight side Burnley in the fifth round And although Lincoln are 88 places below Arsenal in the league pyramid there was no sign of that vast gulf in class in the first half with Nathan Arnold almost giving them a shock lead when his shot brought a fine save from Petr Cech The chastening 5-1 loss to Bayern was Arsenal’s fifth defeat in their seven games and they looked bereft of confidence for long periods Wenger’s luck finally took a turn for the better in first-half stoppage time when Walcott’s shot took a large deflection off Lincoln’s Sam Habergham on its way into the net That settled Arsenal’s nerves and Giroud doubled the lead when he slotted home from Hector Bellerin’s cross in the 53rd minute before Waterfall glanced Kieran Gibbs’ cross into his own net five minutes later Sanchez curled in the fourth in the 72nd minute and Ramsey made it five three minutes later Hoping to win the FA Cup a seventh time in his 21-year reign Wenger could yet end one of his most difficult seasons with silverware Cruise for Manchester City City cruised into the semi-finals with a commanding victory at the Riverside Stadium as Pep Guardiola showed he is taking the competition seriously David Silva opened the scoring in the third minute and Sergio Aguero’s clinical finish in the 67th minute ensured City advanced to next month’s semi-finals at Wembley City boss Guardiola chasing his first trophy in England was rewarded for naming all his stars despite having to defend a 5-3 lead at Monaco in a decisive Champions League last 16 second leg on Wednesday "We’re so happy to be through because to reach the semi-finals of this competition is so complicated" Guardiola said "We produced a good performance today We were there from the first minute The first goal was important but it was down to how we approached the game Now we recover good to play another big game on Wednesday" In the other quarter-finals Tottenham Hotspur host third-tier Millwall on Sunday while Premier League leaders Chelsea face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday Sydney: The series long pocketed but their appetite for wins far from satiated Australian captain Steve Smith and coach Darren Lehmann on Friday said the hosts will not take it easy in the fifth and final cricket one-dayer against India in Sydney on Saturday Australia in a remarkable display of all-round skills have established a 4-0 lead in the series chasing down two 300-plus targets in the process "5-0 is our goal we have played some very good one-day cricket So it will be a fitting finish to the summer The way we showed our skills in Canberra under pressure was very pleasing (But) we certainly don’t feel invincible but we have great confidence in our skill sets" Smith said ahead of tomorrow’s match Lehmann also said the Aussies won’t be struck by the ‘dead rubber syndrome’ Australia captain Steve Smith PTI "Every game is important whether it is 5-0 or 4-1 or 3-2 it doesn’t matter When you are playing cricket for Australia you actually want to win every game We have a job to do and entertain the crowd in the process" he said Reflecting on the win in the fourth ODI Smith said it was a remarkable effort by his boys given that India were cruising along at one stage during the 349-run chase "There’s no doubt that Wednesday night’s win over India at Manuka Oval was one of the best that I’ve been involved with as an Australia player given the circumstances we found ourselves in and the top-shelf quality of our opposition" he said in a column for Cricket Australia "It wasn’t looking great for us when India were 1-277 and them needing 72 to win at less than a run per ball You generally see a batting side get home quite easily from that position but great credit to our boys and their ‘never-say-die’ attitude "We were able to build a bit of pressure take a couple of wickets and slow the run rate and then continued to take wickets as we mounted what turned out to be a fantastic comeback led by John Hastings and Kane Richardson" he added Smith said his bowlers did well to capitalise on the inexperience of the Indian middle-order "As Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli kept building their partnership our plan was always that a wicket or two might really change the complexion of the match but getting that breakthrough was proving to be pretty tough" he said "But we also knew that India’s middle-order batting was quite inexperienced with a few guys making their international debuts in this series so we thought if we got a wicket or two we could put some pressure on and perhaps squeeze them a bit "And when we did that we were able to get a few of them to play big shots as the run rate grew which helped us pick a few more wickets and it all just seemed to snowball from there" he added Smith said his side is very keen to make it 5-0 tomorrow and sign off the series on a high before the three-match T20 series starting January 26 in Adelaide "That win has given us even more confidence and we head to Sydney today with a great opportunity to complete a five-nil series clean sweep against one of the best one-day teams in the world which would be a great feat if we can get there at the SCG on Saturday "Once the VB Series is completed on Saturday we turn our attention to the three KFC T20s against India starting in Adelaide on Australia Day – which is also the day that India celebrates its Republic Day – and those games will be a crucial part of our preparation for the World T20 in March" he said Smith will play only the opening match of the T20Is and Aaron Finch will lead the side when he and opener David Warner take a break "Of course the captaincy duties for our T20 team rest with Aaron Finch and so I’ll be looking forward to the opportunity of simply going out there as a player on Australia Day to try and score a few runs and maybe take a couple of catches I’m sure it will be great fun" he said PTI Even though we have given them the best squad, While Congress leader Rashid Alvi said a “big fuss” was being made of
