The caption read: “I’m just happy I have another excuse to share this adorable photo again #usopen final!” Three years after the polaroid moment Nadal turned professional Anderson took his time and made his way through college before going pro in 2007 — Nadal had already won three French Open titles by then Among all the stats he’s inked in record books this fortnight Anderson is the first US college player to make a Major final since Todd Martin in 1999 and could become the first since John McEnroe in 1984 to win a Slam Anderson stayed among the middle rung of players till date winning only three ATP titles while Nadal was a World No 1 well on the path to claiming the 15 Slam titles he holds today But they were both faced with injury troubles last season Nadal was forced to retire from his beloved French Open in 2016 due to a wrist injury but Anderson — whose 6-foot-8 frame makes him extremely injury prone — had a longer injury list Despite ending the 2015 season by breaching the top 10 for the first time in his career Anderson’s body grew rife with problems Recurring issues with the left knee were compounded by a right shoulder problem and were later overshadowed by the ankle surgery he needed in 2016 Earlier this year there were concerns with his elbow along with the threat of a hip surgery “Here I am just nine months later after thinking I might have to undergo a year’s worth of hip surgery recovery So this means the world to me” he said The ranking took a significant dip as he started the 2017 season at 80 But he persevered and started making his way back up reaching the final of the Citi Open and later the quarter-finals of the Montreal Masters Nadal meanwhile had made a strong recovery making the final at the Australian Open followed by La Decima – his 10th French Open crown At Flushing Meadows Nadal has exceeded expectations He went without a title in the US hard-court season ahead of the Open and didn’t seem to have the firepower to counter hard-hitting players like Denis Shapovalov and Nick Kyrgios The top-spin on his shots is not half as wicked as it is on clay and the faster hard-courts rob him crucial seconds to run down every ball But Nadal has deconstructed opponents with his cracking forehand this time around going in for the attack more often Anderson meanwhile has found a fair degree of mobility despite his large frame and has not rushed to end points “I feel like I’m just being a bit more patient with myself I feel like that’s been a big change I have implemented in the last few months” he said Of course with his height his serve has been his biggest weapon He powered down 22 aces in the semi-final including a 212 kmph monster serve to win the second set Through the tournament he’s lost just five of his 109 service games It’s a rejuvenated Anderson that a refreshed Nadal will face at the Arthur Ashe Stadium for the title Two old friends from junior days whose different career graphs never let them meet too often on tour for them to become familiar foes Nadal is the overwhelming crowd favourite but Anderson is the heartening underdog story This may not be the final everyone had hoped for but it is the final that Nadal and Anderson deserve There is no mistaking the fact that with the inauguration of work on the first phase of Chabahar port in Iran on Sunday India has sought to neutralise some of the strategic advantages that China had gained in the tug of war with New Delhi for control of the sea lanes The Gwadar port in Pakistan which is barely 80 kilometres from Chabahar was designed to give Beijing and Islamabad that strategic edge after India’s access to Gwadar was denied by design If the Chinese in collusion with Pakistan thought that they could choke a vital Indian access to the sea thereby jeopardising Indian trade especially with Central Asia the opening of a new strategic transit route to Iran and Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan would be an effective counter to it However while Iran’s interests have been well catered to by India’s finance for the Chabahar project and the setting up of ancillary industries in and around it the China-Pakistan link would predictably leave no stone unturned to woo as well as browbeat the Iranians to re-think about the India connection as they have been doing Oil docks at the port of Kalantari in the city of Chabahar Reuters Indeed the Narendra Modi government has committed $500 million to the Chabahar port along with associated roads and rail lines that will crack open a trade and transport route to landlocked Afghanistan as well as the resource-rich countries of central Asia While Chabahar is expected to be fully operational by the end of next year in what can be compared to a full dress rehearsal India plans to send seven shipments of wheat to Afghanistan through Chabahar by the end of January The wheat will be trucked from Chabahar to western Afghanistan The shipments will put to test the route’s viability and the plan is to broaden the cargo flow before the port is fully operational Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said at Sunday’s inauguration that Iran also plans to link the port to the country’s railroad network to facilitate the transit of goods to neighbouring landlocked Central Asian countries as well as open a route to eastern and northern Europe through Russia That would suit India well Significantly he downplayed the rivalry with Pakistan in his inauguration speech and said the port will bring "more engagement and unity" among regional countries That is a facade that has to be maintained "We should go after a positive competition" he said "We welcome other ports in the region we welcome Gwadar’s development" That the opening of the first phase of Chabahar represents a personal triumph for Modi was clear from his visit to Iran in May 2016 to give a fillip to the project after it was steeped in uncertainty following Chinese moves to scuttle it To leave nothing to chance external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj made an unscheduled stopover in Tehran recently on the eve of the port inauguration at which she broke bread with her Iranian counterpart Dr Javad Zarif India’s state-run railway body IRCON International will set up a railway line at Chabahar to move goods right up to Afghanistan The 500-kilometre rail link between Chabahar and Zahedan will link India to the rest of Iran’s railway network To make it adequately attractive for the Iranians part of the agreement is a free trade zone where a total investment of Rs one lakh crore is envisaged Indian companies would set up a range of industries from aluminium smelter to urea plants in the region State-owned NALCO will set up an aluminium smelter while private and co-operative fertiliser firms are keen to build urea plants India will also supply $400 million of steel rails to Tehran There are plans of a fertiliser plant through a joint venture with the Iran government Securing hydrocarbon sources is a priority for India as New Delhi and Tehran would look to expand the basket in the coming years This will also give momentum to the International North-South Transport Corridor of which both India and Iran are initial signatories along with Russia Iran is the key gateway in this project It entails the ship rail and road routes for moving freight between India Russia Iran Europe and Central Asia The route primarily involves moving freight from India Iran Azerbaijan and Russia The objective of the corridor is to increase trade connectivity between major cities such as Mumbai Moscow Tehran Baku and Astrakhan All in all with Chinese hegemony getting a big boost as a result of the upcoming China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the Chinese assiduously wooing greater trade link-ups with countries in Asia Africa and Europe Chabahar offers India a silver lining But if those dead set against Chinese control of sea lanes – principally India Japan the US and Australia – are to effectively counter the Chinese thrust it is vital that the US plays a more pro-active role India will indeed be called upon to play a key role to get the US on board Stockholm:British author Kazuo Ishiguro best known for his novel The Remains of the Day won the Nobel Literature Prize on Thursday the Swedish Academy said Born in Nagasaki 62-year old Ishiguro moved to Britain with his family when he was five years old only returning to visit Japan as an adult He writes in English The Swedish Academy cited him for "novels of great emotional force (he) has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world" File image of Kazuo Ishiguro AP Both his first novel A Pale View of Hillsfrom 1982 and the subsequent one An Artist of the Floating Worldfrom 1986 take place in Nagasaki a few years after World War II "The themes Ishiguro is most associated with are already present here: memory time and self-delusion" the Academy said "This is particularly notable in his most renowned novel The Remains of the Day" which was turned into a film with Anthony Hopkins acting as the duty-obsessed butler Stevens "Ishiguro’s writings are marked by a carefully restrained mode of expression independent of whatever events are taking place" it said Apart from his eight books Ishiguro has also written scripts for film and television In a 1989 interview with Bomb Magazine Ishiguro said: "I tend to be attracted to pre-war and post-war settings because I’m interested in this business of values and ideals being tested and people having to face up to the notion that their ideals weren’t quite what they thought they were before the test came" Inspired by Dostoyevsky Proust His more recent fiction contains elements of fantasy With the critically-acclaimed dystopian work Never Let Me Gofrom 2005 Ishiguro introduced "a cold undercurrent" of science fiction into his work the jury said Inspired by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Marcel Proust Ishiguro’s characters often painfully come to terms with who they are without closure His latest novel The Buried Giantfrom 2015 explores "in a moving manner how memory relates to oblivion history to the present and fantasy to reality" In the book an elderly couple go on a road trip through an archaic English landscape hoping to reunite with their adult son whom they have not seen for years Ishiguro was not among those tipped as a favourite for this year’s Nobel His publisher Faber & Faber wrote on Twitter after the announcement "We’re THRILLED Kazuo Ishiguro has won the Nobel Prize" Last year the 18 members of the Swedish Academy stunned the world by awarding the honour to American rock legend and counter-culture icon Bob Dylan The Nobel Prize is worth 9 million kronor ($11 million)?
