end his four year wait for a Grand Slam title (Source: Reuters) Top News When self-styled “old guy” Roger Federer clocked that he was on a semi-final collision course with an all-conquering world number one his vision of holding aloft the Wimbledon trophy for a record eighth time may have seemed like a pipe dream However the shock demise of top seed Novak Djokovic at the weekend not only elevated the Swiss to a position as the man to beat it also raised the possibility this could be the week when he finally ends his four-year hunt for an 18th grand slam title Federer’s previous strategy would have been to focus all his energy on upending the only man who has wrecked his grand slam hopes over the past year However he can now dare to imagine hoisting the pineapple-topped trophy again — as he has a winning head-to-head record against every man left in the draw including his potential final opponent Andy Murray As Federer begins his countdown to a possible 11th appearance in the final his first task will be to topple Croatian beanpole Marin Cilic in Wednesday’s quarter-final Federer recalled that the ninth seed “blew me away” the last time they met in the semi-finals of the 2014 US Open which Cilic went on to win but this time round he was ready for anything the Croatian could throw at him “I know what I’m getting into” said Federer who owns a 5-1 record in meetings with Cilic “He’s really tough to play He’s really improved his serve in the last few years especially since the US Open He can clearly do it here at Wimbledon too “But I’m happy about my game as well I’m confident going into the Cilic match” added the man who was runner-up to Djokovic in the last two Wimbledon finals A lot of that belief comes in the knowledge that should he navigate his way past Cilic waiting for him in the semi-finals will be either Djokovic’s conqueror American 28th seed Sam Querrey or Canadian Milos Raonic SAMPRAS INSPIRATION Whereas a week ago Federer was “not thinking of the title” — with doubts remaining about his fitness after he sat out the French Open with a bad back — chances are that after Djokovic lost on Saturday the 34-year-old has thought of little else While many pundits and fans alike are tipping Murray as the man who will now go on to lift the gilded Challenge Cup on Sunday Federer could do worse than draw inspiration from another seven-times Wimbledon champion Fourteen years ago American Pete Sampras was written off as a ‘has been’ after he lost in the French Open first round and was then jettisoned out of Wimbledon in the second round — by 145th-ranked journeyman George Bastl By the time he arrived at the US Open in August his ranking had tumbled to 17th in the world Even when he beat Greg Rusedski to reach the fourth round the Briton bluntly declared: “I’d be surprised if he wins his next match I think the movement is not the same and the fitness is not the same “He’s just not the same player from the past” Sampras responded to the churlish outburst in the only way a true champion knows how — by winning the title With similar words being whispered about Federer last week — after he arrived at Wimbledon without winning a title in the first six months of the year for the first time since 2000 — the world number three also let his racket do the talking After four matches his record stands at 12 sets contested 12 sets won “Right now I enjoy everything about Wimbledon” said Federer whose absence from Roland Garros ended a run of appearing in 65 consecutive slams “Clearly I missed being in Paris… but that decision was for Wimbledon it was for the rest of the season it was for the rest of my career “I love this tournament more than anything It’s a huge opportunity for me to turn around the season “In tennis there’s not that much more (goals left to achieve) I hope I can win Wimbledon one more time That would be nice” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More

to Indias strengthsglobal interests and perspectives and a penchant for grandstanding on a serious issue Firstdoes India give up anything in being flexible on emissions The major feature of energy experience in the last three decades is that the country has managed a high growth rate with decelerating growth in electricity capacity and generation and that is through higher capacity utilisation in generation facilities (rising plant load factors in power plants)energy efficiency and captive power The last feature is to be avoided since it is expensive Capacity use has reached a plateau and will probably not rise any more But energy efficiency will increase Per unit of GDP in comparable purchasing parity termsIndia consumes around 60 per cent of the energy that countries like the US and China do We are comparable with other efficient countries like Japan and the UK This is a trend which started in the second half of the 80s with the industrial reforms initiated by the late Rajiv Gandhi In facthe laid down energy efficiency targets as essential for resource conservationglobal competitivenessas also fiscal prudence In the preparation for the Eighth Planfor exampleenergy efficiency targets were laid down for large industries The argument was that this was the flip side of the industrial reform underway Expansion of scale and improved capacity utilisation in large continuous process industries like steelcementaluminiumfertilisers and so on lead to substantial energy savings The targets laid down as part of the resource saving calculations of the plans led to the outcomes we see now The present stage of technological progress and advance makes a continuation of this trend almost inevitable India is not taking any chances in making intentionally vague one-liners of the kind that Jairam Ramesh has been making as a well-thought-out bargain counter at Cancun and elsewhere The argument that emissions should be calculated and enforced only in per capita terms was alright in the late 70sbut to peddle it now is to treat yourself as some kind of a Luddite joke in global negotiations It is alright and expected from some retired diplomats sticking to what they learnt in their first training but completely incompatible with the responses expected from a country taken seriously in global negotiations None of the other BRICs countries does this The more serious argument is of the kind that was made in preparation for the Rio summit In The Hague Declaration under the leadership of Mahbub ul Haque and Jan Pronkthe argument was made and signed by some of us that the world has to change lifestylesforeven under favourable technology scenariosthe world as we know it ceases to exist if we cross US per capita living standards by as much as a quarter in China and India This then gets to the point that Gandhiji had made that there is enough for everyones need but not for greed But this is not the per capita argument and that we will not adjust In factthe models that the environment ministry has put on websites make the adjustment points very elegantlyand some of the better younger elements have worked on that and so people like me have stopped making the point we were making with cruder tools at Johannesburgfor examplein the India 2020 modelling for the United Nations University It is interesting that those groups which were very close to the Bush administrations stand of completely sidestepping the Kyoto agreements are now taking the maximal equity arguments Apart from first principlesthere are important issues in access to greener technologiescarbon trading and Indias priorities to renewable nuclear and hydro-electric power At the present stagewe are seeing the setting of the borders of the debate and the issue is whether a country will be relevant or not Indian leadership was conspicuous by its absence in critical meetings earlierbusy at home pontificating on the per capita slogans Since CopenhagenIndia is in the
