Or sit out the Rio Games and make it to New York.The 17-time major champion contemplated both scenarios holding out hope as long as he could that he’d find a way to enter at least one of the big

great announced in late July that he’d miss the rest of the season by far the longest layoff of a remarkably healthy career ALSO READ |Roger Federer Rafa Nadal to team up in Ryder Cup style LaverCup Federer who turned 35 this month was in Manhattan on Wednesday to talk about playing tennis next year at the new Laver Cup team event But for the first time since 1999 he’s not preparing for the US Open He underwent an arthroscopic procedure in February to repair torn cartilage – the first surgery of his career Federer hasn’t played since his Wimbledon loss to Milos Raonic in which he fell awkwardly and called the trainer to check on what had become a nagging knee problem “I never really had pain funny enough” Federer said Wednesday “It just felt unstable” Then there was the swelling “When it’s swollen you can’t compete at the best level” he added An MRI didn’t show anything distinctly different from before For all his upbeat talk Wednesday about his future Federer let some doubts seep in when he discussed the mystery of what’s going on in the knee “That’s why I think it’s been to some extent frustrating” he said “At least if I had a lot of pain or if the scan shows you thoroughly what exactly the problem is then I think it’s easier to take a decision “I really hope I’m not being misled by the knee that it doesn’t feel painful But it’s just not 100 percent That’s why I just think the beating that I got in Wimbledon and the clay court season was just so complicated” Federer who also skipped the French Open because of a bad back didn’t play tennis for five or six weeks and just now is starting to do a few things on the court He’s focused on exercises to strengthen his left quadriceps such as squats so he’ll be physically ready once he ramps back up to his full workouts to prepare for January’s Australian Open It might have been possible to return for a couple of tournaments late in 2016 Federer said but there was no point once he knew he would miss the bulk of the fall schedule He reflected back to this past January when the Laver Cup concept was unveiled at the Australian Open and marveled: “My God I never thought I was going to have a year the way I had it” He hurt his knee while preparing a bath for his twin daughters then later saw his record 65-appearance streak at major tournaments end Federer won’t win a title in a season for the first time since 2000 And now that he missed the Rio Games his career could end without an Olympic singles gold medal He insisted he hasn’t missed competition yet though maybe that will change when the US Open starts next week The quiet away from the spotlight has been nice he said – even if he quickly amended that to: “I’ve got four kids – it’s a different quiet” Back in New York site of five of his titles Federer said he watched a lot of volleyball during the Olympics and spoke to Andy Murray after the Brit won gold Despite Murray’s recent run Federer still believes Novak Djokovic is the favorite at the US Open No matter that the world’s top-ranked player has struggled by his standards since completing the career Grand Slam at Roland Garros – Djokovic is just too good on the hard courts and too successful against Murray Federer said If the Serb does win to move within four major titles of Federer’s record the man he’s chasing will be forced to watch from afar “In a way it’s painful just because I love this place” Federer said “and it’s hard watching the Olympics – I would have loved to have competed there as well … Would have loved to win a medal” For all the latest Sports News

Commission of Protection of Child Rights conducted a workshop at Snehalaya on Monday Sharing the findings of the survey conducted by CCPCR chairperson Devi Sirohi revealed that over 1224 child beggars were found in the city in 2015 Out of these 793 were boys and the remaining 431 were girls During the survey it was also highlighted that the majority of child beggars were in the age group of six to 14 years Sirohi said: “We must not only focus at rescuing the children but also rehabilitationg them We must ensure every child is given medical facilities vocational training de-addiction programme sponsorship programme identity cards and shelter homes” The child rights panel launched a booklet on the standard operating procedures to ensure effective rehabilitation of the rescued children It explained the purview of different departments and steps to be followed after the rescue of a child A case file like a rescue report needs to be maintained for each child Share This Article Related Article “While the SOP explains the duties of each department clearly it needs ideas for stronger structure” Adviser Rai said According to the CCPCR officials the standard operating procedures will be reviewed after 15 days Sirohi also addressed the need for general awareness on child begging “If we see a child who is exploited or is not given proper opportunities for growth and development we must hold ourselves responsible for not taking care of the child” she said UT Adviser Parimal Rai and deputy commisioner Ajit Balaji Joshi were also present on the occasion DC Joshi suggested implementation of policies like DNA mapping of children for verification of the child’s parents Citing the example of Jhajjar Brick kilns where nomad schools were started for students who came to work there he said: “Nomad schools with different curriculum are a great step but are not considered under the Right to Education Act This creates problems Therefore there is a need for acceptance of these schools so that children can be mainstreamed into the education system later” Joshi also emphasised on the need of a public awareness campaign against the use of religion for beggary “I believe the state is a bigger parent in terms of responsibility than the biological parent Yet the government needs CSR collaborations to ensure every child gets education I encourage people should sponsor children instead of adopting them so that their future is secured” he said Adviser Rai said: “When you see a beggar you must realise that the child has undergone extreme physical torture and is very scared because he has someone monitoring him Laws like RTE and Right to Food Security exist but the onus is on us as NGOs administration government or commissions to ensure they are implemented and for that we must work in partnership After rescuing we must ensure that the children and their parents are counselled and proper education is given to the child” Giving a green signal to DNA mapping Rai also emphasised on the need of an additional photo portal for identification “Much like the PM’s Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Andolan we as citizens must start a Save a child and Sponsor/Teach a Child

‘following the Transfer Act 2005’ has drawn the ire of the latter who had filed a writ petition in the Bombay High Court last month questioning such moves While the first hearing of the case is slated for Monday officials said that incidences of sudden transfers have increased during the present government’s tenure While the usual annual transfers in April-May are ‘acceptable’ and officials are not hesitating from election duty transfers those other than these anytime of the year as issued by the state government are a clear violation of rules point out the 10 officials from the Pune division who had filed the writ petition on June 26 The officials said that such transfers have affected nearly 1000 employees in various offices on a ‘pack and move’ mode Nagesh Patil tehsildar of Pandharpur and one of the petitioners said that the ‘erroneous’ policy without following the Transfer Act is disturbing family life and particularly the education of children “On account of this policy not less than 1000 officers are likely to be transferred The administration’s transfer expenses come to nearly Rs 15000 for every transfer thus burdening the state exchequer with crores of rupees’’ he said Another petitioner from Pune district tehsildar Dashrat Kale said that while officials are posted on election duty to another district other than their home district they are again transferred further to some other place which completely disturbs their schedule Watch Video: What’s making news In the petition the petitioners have stated that Section 3 of the Transfer Act 2005 says that the normal tenure for a post of All India Service officers and all groups (A B and C) or employees shall be three years Section 4 (1) says that no government servant shall ordinarily be transferred unless he has completed his tenure of posting as provided in Section 3 and such transfers are ordinarily affected in April-May “For a mid-term transfer the competent authority must be satisfied that the transfer is essential due to exceptional circumstances after recording the same in writing and with prior approval of the next higher authority For this there must be a finding on the file that a particular officer has some political bias Without all these the transfers are being done’’ states the petition which is signed by the 10 officials all of whom are tehsildars The petitioners have challenged this clause calling the orders ‘erroneous’ ‘not maintainable under law’ and ‘against the principles of justice’ While transfers during elections are done further transfers does not fit the rule The petition said that article 243K (3) does not permit the state election commission and the state government to transfer its employees during election and continue the said transfer order even after the elections are over The petition submits that Section 9A (4) of the Maharashtra Zilla Parishad and Panchayat Samiti Act 1961 does not permit the state election commission and the state government to effect transfers contrary to the Transfer Act 2005 While the BJP-Shiv Sena government has completed its second year in office it is increasingly seen that the government has been constantly transferring officials some of whom have not even completed their term and on the contrary retaining some even after they have completed their terms “Abrupt decisions and transfers are frequent in the present regime and even as male officers are affected female officers are finding it increasingly difficult with such a system’’ said a senior official from Pune who was given a deputation of one year at an institution and was again given marching orders to another district Senior bureaucrats too have faced the ire with many being transferred mid-term “This was seen in the case of the abrupt transfer of IAS officer Pravin Gedam and many others who have not completed their terms’’ said an official For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsRiyadh: Saudi Arabia on Saturday suspended any dialogue with Qatar accusing it of distorting facts soon after a phone call between the rulers of both countries offered hope of a breakthrough in the three-month-old Gulf crisis Representational image AP Qatar’s emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani spoke to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to express interest in talks state media from both sides said in the first public dialogue between the leaders after the US president offered to mediate in the crisis Saudi Arabia led the United Arab Emirates Egypt and Bahrain in cutting ties with Qatar in June accusing it of bankrolling Islamist extremist groups and of being too close to regional rival Iran Doha denies the accusations The crown prince "welcomed this desire" the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) initially reported adding "details will be announced after Saudi Arabia reaches an agreement with UAE and Bahrain and Egypt"But the prospect of a thaw quickly died down after SPA subsequently accused Qatar’s state media of wrongly implying that Saudi Arabia had initiated the outreach "What was published by Qatar News Agency is continuation of Qatari authority’s distortion of facts" SPA said adding that any dialogue was now suspended The development came after US President Donald Trump on Friday spoke separately with the leaders of Saudi Arabia Qatar and the UAE "The President underscored that unity among the United States’ Arab partners is essential to promoting regional stability and countering the threat of Iran" the White House said "The President also emphasised that all countries must follow through on commitments to defeat terrorism cut off funding for terrorist groups and combat extremist ideology" When he offered to mediate Trump said he believed the dispute could be solved

statement early yesterday the Saudi-led bloc had showed no signs of backing down as it questioned the Kuwaiti emir’s statement that Qatar would be willing to accept their 13 demands The demands include shutting Doha-based broadcaster Al-Jazeera closing a Turkish military base in the emirate and downgrading Qatari diplomatic ties with Iran The bloc also voiced "regret" about the Kuwaiti ruler’s statement "on the success of mediation in stopping military intervention" Instead the four Arab states stressed that "the military option has not been and will not be considered" under any circumstances Kuwait has emerged as a key mediator in the crisis while the United States has given mixed signals on its policy Riyadh and Doha are both key allies of the United States Trump who chose Saudi Arabia for his first overseas visit as president in May two weeks before the crisis erupted immediately expressed staunch support for Saudi Arabia Some other US officials including Secretary of
