Djokovic returns to No. 1 in the rankings after a 2-year absence



Novak Djokovic returned to the first position in the ATP ranking after a two-year absence – and he was the first man in almost two decades, who moved up to the first place after he was out of the top 20 in the same season. Djokovic advanced from position 2 to overtake Rafael Nadal yesterday. When the 31-year-old from Serbia fell to 22 in May, after the start of the year with a record of 6-6, after recovering from surgery on the right elbow, it was his lowest rank since he was 22 years old in 2006. Djokovic lost 43-5, including the Grand Slam at Wimbledon and the US Open. Marat Safin moved from No. 38 to No. 1 in 2000.

Solari made his suitcases to become Real Madrid's coach

After just two games, Santiago Solari makes fans of Real Madrid forget about finding a new coach. And Madrid can very well give up if he succeeds. Solari has been doing well since the takeover of Julen Lopetegui, the satisfaction of players and fans, and to increase their chances of taking over the team permanently. Discussions on Antonio Conte and Roberto Martinez have faded since Solari took control and quickly restored Madrid to the right track. In a short time, Solari increased the team's confidence and won the victories that slipped away from the team. A former football player from Madrid came with the club in a crisis and survived the race, which included five defeats in seven matches in all competitions, including the demoralizing loss of 5-1 to Barcelona at Camp Nou.

The Salah statue in Egypt criticized the weak resemblance

The bronze statue of Mohamed Salah, unveiled yesterday at an international youth meeting in Egypt, was criticized for its weak resemblance to the Liverpool striker. The statue depicts Salah with a disproportionately large head and small arms stretched out in a festive pose, which the 26-year-old Egyptian took in the second half of last season. The figurine made by artist Mai Abdullah has curly Salah hair and stands on what looked like a plant pot. "Negative comments will not frustrate or affect me, but I hope people will learn about police art and respect criticism," wrote Abdullah in response to the tide of mockery on social media networks. Last year Cristiano Ronaldo unveiled the bust, which was also criticized for the lack of similarity.
