What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Tennis – Masters Final: The boss is Djokovic!

Novak Djokovic entered tennis history a little more on Sunday in Turin. Crowned for the 6th time in his career at the Masters, Roger Federer’s record equaled, after his victory in the final against Casper Ruud (7-5, 6-3), the Serb reminded everyone that it will be necessary to count on him for 2023. However, it has not concealed having felt a certain nervousness.

2. Handball – Euro: Les Bleues leave empty-handed

It’s cruel. The French team fell from above by being beaten by Montenegro, however largely dominated during the main round, in the small final (27-25 ap) Euro Sunday. The reigning Olympic champions were aiming for European gold, they finished at the foot of the podium.

3. Basketball – NBA: The Suns recover, winning return for Irving

And rugby, in all this? On this Monday, we ask the question that annoys. Back in the blue jersey after two months without playing with Toulouse, the opening half of the Blues Romain Ntamack was somewhat disappointed during this November tour. Not very decisive, he especially saw his main competitor for number 10, Matthieu Jalibert, multiply the good entries into play. And if this tour had revived the debate of the opener in the France team?

Come on, to finish and it’s a gift: the bonus-malus of the last Grand Prix of the season in Abu Dhabi.

The question of the day: Can England create the surprise?

The Three Lions have been waiting for this since 1966. This Monday, England begins its World Cup against Iran (2 p.m.) with the ultimate dream of lifting it for the second time in its history on December 18. Driven by Harry Kane, the European vice-champion team seems to really believe in it. We a little less. With a weakened coach with criticized choices, in addition to poor results and a tentative game, the English selection seems a bit “light” to apply for the supreme title.

The objective is to make the country proud, Gareth Southgate recently told The Team. Obviously, this requires victories. My players know what they are capable of, they played a semi-final (2018 World Cup), a final (Euro 2021), so they would be disappointed to do less well in Qatar. But you have to take into account that the team is going through a different period, in terms of performance, especially because some of our players don’t play regularly for clubs, not to mention injuries. Many other selections are in the same situation of uncertainty, such as France or Germany. Finally, I think it will be a very open tournament.” So why not believe it, after all.
