Shapovalov accuses umpire for not handing more time-violation penalties to Nadal and suggesting that…

Shapovalov accuses umpire for not handing more time-violation penalties to Nadal and suggesting that…

Shapovalov – the 22-year-old Canadian left-hander – had produced some sparkling tennis through the middle of this Australian Open classic. But he also lost his way in the closing stages of his eventual 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-3 defeat, which must also go down as one of the hardest earned wins of Nadal’s career.

And the drama was not all about forehands and backhands. Shapovalov – who hurled his racket into the court at the conclusion of the match – had earlier challenged chair umpire Carlos Bernardes, asking him why he wasn’t handing more time-violation penalties to Nadal, and suggesting that he was “corrupt”.

This was a confrontational way to approach the match, and did at least suggest that Shapovalov was not here to play the patsy. But when it came to the deciding set, he suffered a critical failure of nerve. He donated an early break with a series of panicky errors, and never managed to rediscover his inner satnav, despite a series of opportunities.

To return to the controversy over slow play, the first of two heated conversations broke out at the beginning of the second set. Shapovalov – who was waiting to serve – marched up to Bernardes to say “You started the shot-clock 45 seconds ago and he’s still not ready to play. You gotta code him.“

One code violation for delay of game counts as a warning; a second costs the recipient a point or a first serve, depending on whether he is serving or receiving at the time.

Shapovalov seemed to be about to drop the issue, but then he began again. “He’s not ready to play! Are you kidding me? You guys are all corrupt!” Bernardes made no response at the time, but this was an unusually forceful outburst, and could well earn Shapovalov a fine for impugning the probity of an official.

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 .

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.
