Novak Djokovic, marked by controversy, glories of Rafa Nadal.

Tennis had a historic 2022, with champions of the old guard and Carlos Alcaraz who began to encourage himself to break with the hegemony of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

In addition, the greatest exponent in the history of this sport, Roger Federer, retired. For many, the player who came to change all levels of world tennis.

Between the Swiss, the Serbian and the Spanish, tennis entered an almost galactic orbit since for more than 10 years they were the owners of this sport.

 

Australian Open, the controversy with Djokovic, and the glory of Nadal

The year began with the Australian Open and a controversy that paralyzed the world. The number 1 at that time, Novak Djokovic, could not play in the tournament because he did not want to get vaccinated against Covid 19. But that Australian Open, anyway, was historic.

Against all odds, the winner was Rafael Nadal. At the age of 35, he brought out all his experience in the Australian heat and won his 21st Grand Slam, making him the tennis player with the most major titles in history. In the final he defeated the Russian Daniil Medvedev after going two sets down, he won the match 2-6 6-7 6-4 6-4, and 7-5.

Roland Garros, another satisfaction for King Nadal

The year continued at Roland Garros, with Djokovic in attendance. But Nadal was indomitable. The man from Manacor beat Félix Auger AlliassimeNovak Djokovic, and Alexander Zverev, and in the final, he thrashed Casper Ruud 6-3 6-3 6-0. 

Thus the Spaniard reached his 22nd Grand Slam and added his 14th title at the French Open. It should be noted that the match with Djokovic in the quarterfinals was one of the best in recent times. In addition, the eighth against Alliassime took them in five sets.

Wimbledon, Kyrgios was close, but Djokovic came back 

At the Cathedral of Tennis, Wimbledon, the best was Djokovic. The Serbian claimed his 21st Grand Slam championship after beating Australian Nick Kyrgios in the final in four sets and after losing the first. Novak went from less to more during the tournament and had matches to remember. In the quarterfinals, he lost the first two sets to the Italian Jannick Sinner and came out to play the last three sets in disarray. In any case, what was achieved by Kyrgios took all the flashes.

Us Open: Carlos Alcaraz breaks hegemony 

The year closed in Flushing Meadows with the US Open and the consecration of 19-year-old Spanish Carlos Alcaraz. The young wonder had had a very good Roland Garros and had won some titles, but in the United States, he confirmed his present and defeated the Norwegian Casper Ruud in the final. 

The Spaniard had three games that marked him: the round of 16 with Marin Cilic, the quarterfinals with Jannick Sinner, and the semifinals with Frances Tiafoe

In all of them, he had to define in the fifth set and they ended in the wee hours of the morning. Thus. Carlitos added his first big championship and was encouraged to break with the hegemony of the Big Three .

But the news that stole all the flashes in the tennis world was Roger Federer‘s retirement at the Laver Cup. After a career full of successes and 20 Grand Slam victories, the Swiss put an end to his career at the age of 41.

The good news is that in 2023, Rafa Nadal will continue playing tennis and will seek to continue expanding his numbers. Same case for Djokovic who will try to overcome it.

Comeback hammer perfect – for Mick Schumacher it could change everything

Formula 1 has one of its most dazzling figures back. 15 years after his departure, Flavio Briatore is back ! On Friday, the Alpine racing team announced the signing of the now 74-year-old Italian.

A bombshell that should make all fans of Mick Schumacher sit up and take notice. Briatore once brought Michael Schumacher into Formula 1 – the rest is history. Now he is signing with the very team that is publicly considering signing his son Mick .

ARTICLE CONTINUE AFTER THE ADVERTISEMENT..... SCROLL DOWN

The “Crashgate” cost him his job. After the scandal surrounding an intentional accident and the influencing of the title decision in 2008, Renault threw out the polarizing team boss. Briatore said clearly at the time: There will be no return to Formula 1. 15 years later, the time has come. The cult figure is back! On Friday, the Renault factory team Alpine announced the signing of the Italian. Renault boss Luca de Meo himself is said to have arranged the amazing comeback.

At Alpine, Briatore will be responsible for scouting top talents as an “executive consultant” and will use his still intact relationships on the driver market. This should make all German fans sit up and take notice. In 1991, Briatore brought Michael Schumacher into Formula 1 and celebrated the first two world championship titles with the legend at Benneton. Will he now help his son Mick make a comeback in the premier class?

Alpine publicly revealed that it is negotiating with Mick about a cockpit from 2025. The team is probably the last hope for an F1 return after “Schumi Junior” had to vacate his place at Haas in 2022. The 25-year-old is given a chance of signing with Alpine. This is unlikely to worsen with Flavio Briatore in a leading role in the driver search.

Hamilton Stroll verdict delivered after ‘erratic’ on-track clash with Lance Stroll

Lance Stroll has received a reprimand from the stewards , following an “erratic” collision with Lewis Hamilton late in third practice.

The Aston Martin driver was on a hot lap when he rapidly approached a cruising Hamilton on the entry of turn five, with the seven-time world champion having impeded the Canadian driver.

Hamilton took an extremely wide line to allow Stroll past, whilst also waving to him to apologise.

However, Stroll seemingly saw red mist, as he forced Hamilton even wider and drove into the side of his W15.

Garage footage of Stroll’s car minutes later highlighted some damage to his right sidepod, which will need repairing ahead of qualifying at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The incident was quickly noted and then investigated by the stewards, who deemed that despite having been the driver impeded, Stroll’s actions were not satisfactory.

The stewards’ report read: “The Stewards heard from the driver of Car 18 (Lance Stroll), the driver of Car 44 (Lewis Hamilton), team representatives and reviewed video and in-car video as well as team radio evidence.

“The driver of Car 18 stated that he got impeded by Car 44 into Turn 5 and that upset him. He admitted that he wanted to express his displeasure to the other driver by pulling over on him at the exit.

“Both cars made slight contact which was incidental. However, the Stewards consider the move made by Car 18, whilst not being dangerous, to be erratic and therefore issue a driving reprimand in line with precedents.

“Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Chapter 4 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits.

“Decisions of the Stewards are taken independently of the FIA and are based solely on the relevant regulations, guidelines and evidence presented.”

“My Heart Hurts” – Devastating Images From South Dakota Leave Racing Community Praying for Fans’ Wellbeing Amidst New Hampshire’s Rain Scare

NASCAR’s Xfinity series practice and qualifying were halted due to the skies opening up. But that’s just the beginning because now even the IMSA races face a threat.

Plus, what was supposed to be a fun High Bank Nationals race at the Huset’s Speedway is now a hub for rescue operations! People are stranded, personal properties are lost, and the race is canceled. Right now, the racing community, whether sprint or NASCAR seems to have one common enemy.

While we have seen many fights go on the racetrack or off it, there is never one as iconic as the fight with rain! And one person who can agree to this 100% is, of course, Kyle Larson. He lost his attempt of making a record of doing the “double” just because of rain. But rains do not affect drivers solely, but everyone, even fans. And we saw that pan out at the Huset’s Speedway.

The race is far from everyone’s minds right now. The situation at Huset’s Speedway is dire, with a race against time now unfolding—not for drivers, but for rescue operators. The rain had raised the water levels to an exponential level, trapping the campers who were in town for 4 days of racing. Their campers, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, resemble houseboats submerged in knee-deep water. Among those stranded is the World of Outlaws Championship leader, David Gravel. And he has been updating the racing community with all that’s going on at Huset’s Speedway.

However, the rescuers are to be thanked. The Split Rock Volunteer Fire Department sprang into action. They sent out several boats to rescue nearly thirty people from the flooded area. They were supported by the Brandon and Valley Springs Fire Departments, as well as the Sioux Falls water rescue team.

Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, things don’t look for the Cup race either. The Xfinity practice and qualifying were rained out and now the final race on Sunday is also under threat. The Weather Channel predicts a 73% chance of thunderstorms on Sunday, casting a shadow over the exciting upcoming event.

Amidst this strategy, the racing community came together to pray for everyone at Huset.

Many people travel far and wide with campers to visit the NASCAR and sprint races. And it is not an inexpensive affair. Campers are expensive, after all! However, sadly many RVs were way beyond saving. One fan said, “Terrible. My heart hurts for all those campers… assload of money sitting there flooded.”

Most of the fans were just plain shocked, with many even questioning how the people organization wasn’t prepped for any such issue. One fan said, “Unbelievable. Hope everyone is safe.”

The rescue operation was swift, and they managed to get all out of the flooding situation. But that’s not to say that things could have gone seriously wrong for the people visiting. One user said, “Wow. Praying everyone is safe.” While everyone is safe, the situation just highlights the glaring reality of how rains can affect these areas in the most dangerous of ways. The incident at Huset is alarming and such torrential rain playing havoc on a race day is hardly witnessed. One fan highlighted that and said, “In all my 50 years attending races all over North America, I’ve never seen a race get flooded out to this extent. This scene is heartbreaking for these poor folks who had to deal with this craziness. We locked up our Airbnb and left for home with no major losses. Lucky us.”

Another fan said, “Shit that’s horrible.” Indeed it is terrible that the fans who traveled far, the drivers who practiced hard and the organizers who did plenty of hard work just saw everything go to waste. But in the end, everyone is safe, and that’s what matters.
