Sports News: Klitschko, Djokovic, Kvitova

Klitschko beats Haye, gets WBA Heavyweight title

After months of smack talk against Wladimir Klitschko, David Haye ended up blaming a broken toe for his loss against the Ukrainian, who obtained the WBA heavyweight title. Klitschko called the Briton a “sore loser” for the show Haye displayed the night before the fight at a press conference where he climbed on a table in order to show off the injured toe. Now the British fighter is calling for a re-match, but the Ukrainian said that he prefers to fight the winner of the bout between Britons Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora (both unbeaten) who will fight on July 23, and instead, Haye was offered to fight Klitschko’s elder brother, Vitali, (that is if the Ukrainian is able to retain his WBC heavyweight title at his upcoming fight against Tomasz Adamek).

Another favorite goes down: Kvitova beats Sharapova

Another favorite to go down in Wimbledon was Maria Sharapova, as the Russian fell to a less experienced rival in 21-year-old Petra Kvitova, who became the youngest titleholder at the British tourney since Sharapova conquered the championship back in 2004 when she was 17. Kvitova reached the semi-finals last year, and although she wins it all in 2011, she is careful when asked if she believes she will continue to win grand slams, as she has a lot of respect for the Williams sisters.

Renault and Williams are partners again

It’s a time of changes for Renault and Williams, who are partnering again after their success working as a team back in the nineties. This alliance between the two engine manufacturers will allow them to be suppliers for four F1 teams, in the hopes of getting back to their high competitiveness level. The disappointment suffered by Williams during the start of the present season in terms of achievements have also led to major changes in their team, with technical director Sam Michael and Head of aerodynamics Jon Tomlinson both resigning, and with Mike Coughlan (McLaren, Ferrari) joining as chief designer.
