Masters on Tuesday Fognini ranked 29th in the world booked his place in the second round with a clinical 6-1 6-3 win over fellow Italian Matteo Berrettini on Sunday Fabio Fognini will face Andy Murray in the second round of Rome Masters AP Murray claimed his maiden Rome title with victory over Novak Djokovic in the Eternal City last year But the Scot ousted by unseeded 20-year-old Croat Borna Coric at the Madrid Open last week has admitted his game on clay has gone awry — and Fognini wants to capitalise "It’s not a bad time to be meeting him he’s not playing at his usual level But to beat him I’ll need a big hand from the (supporters on) centre court" Fognini said Murray who celebrated his 30th birthday on Monday leads their ATP head to head series 3-2 and has beaten Fognini in their last two meetings But Fognini was the only player to push Rafael Nadal to three sets last week in Madrid where the Spaniard triumphed Sunday with victory over Dominic Thiem and Murray said he is taking nothing for granted "(Fognini) is one of the better clay-court players for sure He obviously would be highly motivated I would think playing in Italy as well" Murray said "I have had some tough matches with him in the past so it won’t be easy I will definitely need to play well in that one to have a chance of winning" Nadal underlined his status as the tournament favourite when he ousted Djokovic in their Madrid semi-final to claim his first clay victory over the Serb in three years He then dominated Thiem in the final on Sunday to take his record on the surface to 15-0 this year in the process moving up to fourth in the rankings ahead of Swiss rival Roger Federer Spain’s 14-time Grand Slam champion is now a strong favourite to claim his 10th French Open crown next month although

Murray’s hopes of defending his title and Fognini has also given four-time Rome champion Djokovic the defending French Open champion the edge "On clay he (Murray) is just a little inferior to Djokovic given that he’s never won in Paris" added the Italian Yet Fognini who has never made it past the third round in Rome and has a win-loss record of 5-9 in the capital has never forgotten exiting the tournament under a hail of criticism from his home crowd in 2014 He added: "I’ve never had a good run in this tournament I will never forget being whistled off the court when I was ranked 15th (in the

Indira Gandhi which appeared on the 25th anniversary of her assassination is not surprising If the birth anniversary of India’s original iron manwhich fell on the same daywas ignoredthat also is unremarkable Outside Gujarathow many still remember Sardar Patel That Indira Gandhi continues to fascinate people throughout the length and breath of the country is borne out by the longwinding queues standing daily outside 1Safdarjung Roadthe house in which she lived and was shot dead by her own guards This is in contrast to the Birla Housewhere Mahatma Gandhi was assassinatedand which now houses a dustyneglected museum But what took me aback was how many of our TV commentators and newspaper analysts rated Indira as one of our best prime ministers There appeared to be far more rosy recollections than negative memories on the silver jubilee of Indira’s death As someone who has lived through the Indira years and experienced first hand the dark side of her deeply divisive brand of politics and governanceI can’t help feeling that some of the nostalgia for her reign is rather misplaced To give a cross-section of views by prominent journalists on India’s controversial iron lady: Vir Sanghvi praises Indira for her strength and leadership He says her critics attack her mainly for her dynastic ambitions and her Left-wing economic policies The Emergency she imposedhe believeshas been forgotten Sanghvi credits Indira for keeping India together and gives her high marks for strengthening the electoral process and for her foreign policy MJ Akbar believes that India welcomed the realism of Indira Gandhi after the travails of Nehru’s idealism He applauds her for calling elections in 1977 rather than following the example of so many post-colonial dictatorships in Africa and Asia Karan Thapar opines that Indira Gandhi’s imprint is not just resilientbut perhaps indelible “She is not only the best remembered of our politiciansbut alsoI suspectthe most misunderstood” he says He recalls his personal interaction with the Gandhi family and recounts an incident when as Prime MinisterGandhi wanted to make sure that she was not later than the President in arriving for a screening of the film “The Pink Panther” Thapar’s sister remarked in amazement”She is virtually a dictatoryet she’s so particular about protocol and politeness” Shekhar Guptawith a more balanced viewfeels that Indira was a different Prime Minister in each of her three spells in office “She changed and evolvedoften for the bettersometimes not quite so She was “insecure about losing power The extreme leftward swing in her politics came not from any genuine commitment to socialismbut as an ideological camouflage for a series of dictatorial and subversive blunders which she was to regret later” Pratap Bhanu Mehta argues that during her tenureIndira willfully assaulted every single institution: the judiciaryfederalismthe police She tolerated and created a style of politics that was lumpen at its core; an odd combination of corruptionviolence and the use of arbitrary power Her economic policies were largely a disaster He addshoweverthat she was the last leader who truly belonged to the whole of India The reverence and nostalgia for her has survivedin part because her personal qualities seem to transcend her politics Tavleen Singh notes that Indira Gandhi was a charismatic politician with an amazing ability to convince ordinary Indians that she was their one and only benefactress But “when I try to remember anything good she did for India from an economic or political point of viewI come up with a very short list By 1984when she had ruled India for over 16 yearsshe succeeded in turning India into a country in which everything was in short supply and everything second-rate” My own assessment of India’s iron lady comes closest to those of Tavleen and Mehta Many now tend to forgive Indira for her Emergency excessesand claim that at heart she was a true democrat After allshe called elections in 1977 when she need not have done soher apologists argue Whether she did so because of her democratic convictions or because she was led to believe that she would win the next general elections and was sensitive to world opinion and her place in historyis something we can never know for sure But in any casethe imposition of Emergency was not a one-off aberration Throughout her political careerand not just in the Emergency yearsIndira demonstrated her authoritarian and ruthless streak She had no compunctions about subverting the Constitutionco-opting the judiciaryemasculating her own partyvictimising her opponents through the use of government machineryunseating lawfully elected state governments and denigrating top Constitutional positions by cynically making appointments on a sole criteria — whether the person was pliable and loyal to her She intimidated and bullied the pressran Doordarshan as her personal propaganda machinefurthered her son’s business interests and made no bones about her dynastic intentions In recollecting Indira’s legacymany commentators have confused her huge personal popularity and political shrewdness with performance She may have been a strong leader– particularly when compared to the fractiousundisciplined leaders who succeeded her — but the country’s economy stagnated during her tenure The advantage of a decisive victory over Pakistanwas frittered away with no real gain Even her enemies would not question Indira’s deep commitment to Indiabut like many of her blind followers she had unfortunately begun to believe then Congress president Dev Kant Baruah’s famously sycophantic words”Indira is India and India is Indira” For all the latest Opinion News download
