first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Germany: Roger Federer expressed sympathy for the younger generation of tennis players on Sunday, saying that their successes outside of the Grand Slams were being overlooked. Federer, 37, won the ATP tournament in Halle for a record-stretching 10th time on Sunday, notching up his 102nd career singles title.He was one of two 37-year-olds to be playing in an ATP final on the same day, with veteran Spaniard Feliciano Lopez also in the singles final at Queen’s.ALSO READ | Federer survives scare from Tsonga, enters last eightFederer admitted that the continuing success of older players such as himself, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic had left little elbow room for the younger generation.“As long as me, Rafa and Novak are around it is not going to be easy for a young guy to come up and dominate,” he said.“Maybe it would be good for the sport if they did, I don’t know. People seem to like it as it is.”Yet Federer insisted that the success of players such as Stefanos Tsitsipas, Borna Coric and Karen Khachanov should not be overlooked.Coric, 22, beat Federer in the Halle final last year, while 23-year-old Khachanov broke into the top 10 this year after beating Djokovic in straight sets in the final of the Paris Masters last November.Federer argued that such triumphs were not being given enough recognition, and were being drowned out by the overwhelming focus on the four majors.“I think there is too much focus on the Grand Slams these days which isn’t fair,” said Federer.ALSO READ | Haris’ 89 off 59, Wahab Riaz’s 3/46 help Pakistan crash South Africa’s semis hopes“In my day, it was a huge success to win your first Masters 1000 tournament and break into the top 10.”“Khachanov beat Djokovic in the Paris final as well.

Clippers’ Reggie Jackson is getting acclimated, with Paul George’s help

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum “I don’t want to be the reason things are going bad,” Jackson said after the game, in which he dished four assists and warmed up after missing his first four shots to finish 3 for 9 for eight points.“I really pride myself on really making guys’ jobs easier so I want to find a way to continue to get guys easy looks. As for myself, just continue to be aggressive trying to find spots, picking spots where to attack and where to get the ball moving.”Entering his second game with the Clippers (37-19) on Monday against the 28-28 Memphis Grizzlies (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket, NBA TV), Jackson said the sets themselves aren’t so foreign, but the team’s verbiage will take getting used to.He’ll have help figuring it all out from his old pal Paul George, with whom he’s been close since entering the NBA in 2011.“It helps a lot to have a guy in my corner and having a guy I can lean on, someone I can talk to,” Jackson said. “I think Pat Bev actually just started talking trash in the group (chat) after practice about how they got after us, and I’m like ‘All right, I’m not necessarily sure how things are gonna go.’ And Lou responds back, chatting up, and then the whole group’s going. So it kind of let me know that this is a fun group.”His relationship with George will help matters there, too, if the on-court camaraderie between Clippers’ rookies and former Florida State teammates Mfiondu Kabengele and Terance Mann is any indication.“It helps, especially if things get tough,” Kabengele said Saturday. “I can talk to him and he can come at me in a serious way, and since we’re cool off the court, we know we’re coming from a good place.”Rivers predicted that built-in friendship will help make more than Jackson comfortable.“When you get a player and they’re already close with someone on the team, I think that’s a very good thing,” Rivers said. “Not that he’s comfortable, but for the guy who’s close who’s been on the team, (he) can tell everybody else, ‘Hey this guy’s a good guy.’ That’s a good thing.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t the most auspicious start to Reggie Jackson’s Clippers’ tenure, but Coach Doc Rivers, a former point guard typically demanding of those filling that role, proved Saturday he can be empathetic too.“He struggled a little bit, but he should have,” Rivers said of Jackson, who started in his Clippers debut in place of the injured Patrick Beverley. “Tough spot for him being the point guard. He’s trying to run sets that he doesn’t know. That’s very difficult.”Jackson — who signed with the Clippers last week after agreeing to a buyout with the Detroit Pistons — wasn’t the only member of the Clippers playing uphill in Saturday’s 112-103 loss to the Sacramento Kings, L.A.’s first game after a eight-day layoff for the All-Star break.But, as point guard, he felt some responsibility for that, too, he said.
