'I was tense as on a first date', recalls Italian before starting training with Roger Federer

  'I was tense as on a first date', recalls Italian before starting training with Roger Federer Thomas Fabbiano, 28, flew to Dubai to act as the eight-time Wimbledon champion's hitting partner and he was pleased with the way he performed on-court. "I only know that that first afternoon in Dubai I arrived well in advance and that I was tense as on a first date," Fabbiano said, as quoted by the Express. "But after that early afternoon in Dubai he and his team must have thought that they can count on me with their eyes closed."To be fair, Federer had been inactive for a month and a half, and the fact he was just getting up to speed helped me break the ice. We actually played at least 11 sets.

  Polish speed skater Artur Nogal slips over at the startline There has been many tragic moments in the speed skating in Pyeongchang over the last week or so, notably Elise Christie of Great Britain crashing out of both of her events thus far, but Artur Nogal of Poland has taken it to a whole new level. Lining up in the Men’s 500m speed skating, Nogal suffered a crushing slip at the start line as the race began, essentially ending his Olympic dream before it even began. The 27-year-old would eventually get to his feet and finish the race. However, he ended up in last place with a time of 58.71, over 24 seconds behind gold medalist Håvard Lorentzen of Norway. In likely his last Winter Olympic games, Nogal spent the last four years gearing up for this moment and an untimely slip has dashed his medal hopes in a fraction of a second.
