LITESPORT SERENA WILLIAMS isnt the only Grand Slam champion using a profan- ity at the US Open Roger Federer let an expletive fly, too. In an uncharacteristic display, Fed- erer argued with chair umpire Jake Garner during a changeover in last nights mens final. He claimed his opponent, Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, was given too much time to challenge a line call. I wasnt allowed to challenge after two seconds. The guy takes, like, ten, Federer said. Then the 15-time major champion used a profanity in addressing Garner: Dont tell me to be quiet, OK? When I want to talk, I talk. I dont give a **** what he said. On-court microphones picked up the exchange during its live television broad- cast of the match. This came just a day afterSerenaWilliams was fined $10,000 for her outburst at a line judge during her semi-final with eventual winner Kim Clijsters. The Argen- tine (right) stunned Fed- erer, and the rest of the ten- nis world, as he subdued the five- times champion in a pulsating five-set final to claim the US Open crown. Del Potro left Federer trailing in his shadow as he won an action-packed 3-6 7-6 4-6 7-6 6-2 battle to capture his first grand slam crown at a floodlit Arthur Ashe Stadium. In a four-hour tussle that fea- turedcountlessFederermiss-hits, Hawk-Eye disputes, clashes with the umpire and high-fives with the fans, it was Del Potros show-stop- ping forehands that ultimately shone through and denied the Swiss a mod- ern-era record sixth successive title in New York. After being gifted his third match point with a double fault, an incredu- lous Del Potro kept his eye on the ball as he watched a Federer backhand float long to seal victory. He dropped his racket and collapsed on to his back, with legs splayed and his hands covering his face, an X- shaped emblem of triumph. With his body still shaking with emotion, Del Potro got back on to his feet as the tears started to flow freely. I had two dreams this week. One was to win the US Open and the other one is to be like Roger, the 20-year-old Del Potro told the cheering crowd as he picked up $1.85m. 34 Tuesday, 15 September 2009 London Lite Inbrief Delhi games in wake-up call INDIAN Olympic Association secretary-general Randhir Singh has admitted India will have to wake-up to salvage next years Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Italian job: Button and Barrichello BRAWN GP chief executive Nick Fry believes the F1 world title race is now a straight battle between team-mates Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello -- and he insists they will be allowed to fight to the finish. Brawn enjoyed a near-perfect one- two at the Italian Grand Prix last Sunday, with Barrichello winning to close the gap on Button to 14 points with four races remaining. Brawn also have one hand on the constructors trophy as they lead Red Bull by 40.5 points with a maximum of 72 up for grabs. Amid rumours of rising pitlane rivalry, Fry insisted: Were a team that has a consistent policy of treating both drivers exactly the same. At times when we havent had sufficient parts for both drivers, we have not given them to either of them, even though it has compromised the team. Thats because its the fair thing to do, and undoubtedly well continue with exactly the same philosophy. Fry hailed the weekend in Monza as the most perfect Ive seen the team do and added: For Red Bull to only get one point was another added bonus. Despite Barrichellos form, Fry is refusing to confirm whether the 37-year-old will be retained for next season. He said: Well see. Lets leave it at that.
