Tony Nadal criticized novelty in the rules of tennis

Rafael Nadal`s uncle and his longtime mentor, Tony Nadal, spoke sharply against the ATP`s decision to put a clock on the court to detect compliance with the rule for 25 seconds before serving. 'We recall that this introduction will be used in the US Open series that officially kicked off this week with the Atlanta tournament as well as the last season`s Grand Slam tournament in New York.'

'I think this is a bad decision, Tony Nadal is categorical. I think the 25-second is right for the less intelligent. If you think it`s better to have 24 shooes than 2, then you need more time (to recover from the game via tennis predictions and prepare for serving). But if you want a match you do not think is OK then!', said Tony Nadal, 57, quoted by Express.

Since the start of the year, Tony Nadal has not been traveling with Rafael on tournaments, but he`s still maintaining warm relationships.

'It was special, all these years, to be with him in Australia, New York, Paris. Now my relationship with him is like a uncle, not a coach. When he conquers his congratulations, when he lost a match tell him something different!', added Tony Nadal.

PSG or PSV? Who first will lose a point?

Since the beginning of the French championship have already been 11 rounds, and Paris Saint-Germain still has no lost point, with the goal difference of the capitalists being bombastic - 39:6. Sunday night PSG recorded a valuable 2-0 win as a guest on Marseille and took one of his worst games. The next two meetings of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and friends however, are quite curious. Also in the next round, Tomas Touchel`s players are well-received and ranked second in Lille. And if the 13th round is not going to be at least a bit fatal for the Parisians - then PSG will be visiting Monaco. They are tragically presented this season and occupy the penultimate the 19th place in the standings but have recently appointed Thierry Henry as a senior coach and hope to go up as soon as possible.

There is no other team with similar performance in other European Top 5 Championships. By the 100% success rate of the PSG, the Italian Grand Prix Juventus, who is unbeatable at the top of the Serie A rankings, is the closest match. Cristiano Ronaldo and the company have 9 wins and only one draw after the first 10 rounds, only surprisingly losing points at home in round 9 against Genoa (1:1). There is, however, another team that has a victory after victory and no missing point yet. This is PSV Eindhoven, which is 10 out of 10 in the Dutch Championship. Although not at the level of the Top 5 championships, Eredivisie is one of the most popular and serious club via bestsportpredictions championships on the Old Continent. PSV crash from the start of the season and has a goal difference of 38:4. The team has already defeated big rival Ajax with a 3-0 winner last month, and Feyenoord in the beginning of December and eventually the (14th round) leader could lose his first points in the Netherlands this season.

Mourinho 'bites' Casillas

Real Madrid`s legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas said in an interview he regrets that he did not confront Jose Mourinho at the time when they both worked together for Santiago Bernabeu. Interviewed by the former Argentinian national Jorge Valdano, the 37-year-old Casillas says he regrets that he has been silent and, if he could go back, would have 'caught the bull for the horns' and confronted the Portuguese specialist. Between Casillas and Mourinho there was a conflict, and in 2015 the world champion and two-time European champion with Spain switched to Porto after Carlo Ancelotti finally lost his lead in the team of Los Blancos. But Mourinho does not see things the same way, commenting on Casillas's statement, saying the goalkeeper actually confronted him, but he did it in a covert and serene way. 'When he tells me that he has never confronted me, he does not tell the truth!', Mourinho commented at the Portuguese edition of Record. 'He confronts me and does it in a way that no one else could do better!', added the current manager of Manchester United. 'That looks like an interview with a man who is at the end of his career!', said Mourinho.

When Messi last scored a goal at the 1/4 final in the Champions League, Cristiano had a `Golden Ball`

Lionel Messi is the main culprit for Barcelona`s next failure in the Champions League. Last night, the Spaniards retreated 0:3 from Roma and left the quarterfinals in a third consecutive year. But the idol of the los cuples fans is still lost, and this is already a practice. The Sport newspaper notes that Messi is unrecognizable at this stage of the race for the 2010/11 season. Leo did not score a quarter-goal in their last 11 games. For the last time he scored on April 2, 2013 - that is, when his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo was still with only one Golden Ball. The Portuguese has now five.

Even as of 2013, Messey once played a key role at a meeting ahead of the first semi-final in 2015 against Bayern Munich.

Olympiacos, on Wednesday, La Pulga joined his mediocre teammates and could not help in any eventual ranking.
