He is racing the clock to be fit for the clay court showpiece after retiring from his secondround match at the Nice Open with right elbow soreness. The two-time grand slam quarter-finalist was trailing Dominic Thiem 4-3 when he called it quits, refusing to take any risks three days out from the start of the years second major in Paris. Kyrgios, 20, said he may have been extra cautious after being forced to pull out of several tournaments last year because of a nerve issue with the same serving arm. His mid-match retirement comes a day after Australian No.1 Bernard Tomic pulled the pin, citing a virus, after losing the first set 6-2 to Gianni Mina in his opener in Nice. Mega Monday Crossword Solution Gritty Falcons shock Hoggies TRACY Village Falcons upset competition leaders Hoggies last night in the A grade match of the round at the Marrara Netball Courts. In what could quite possibly be a preview of the grand final later this year, the secondranked Falcons put on 41 goals to Hoggies 26 to finally draw level with them on the ladder. But the sizeable score difference did not reflect the ferocity of the game. With a Hoggies side determined to win despite missing captain Shannon Millar, and a Falcons side on a mission to find victory over the only team they have lost to this season, every play counted, and every body was on the line. After dominating the season so far, Hoggies were finally put under pressure with Tracy Village testing their oppo nents mettle from the very first quarter. The Falcons had agility across the court yet were measured and strategic in their passing, with centre Sally Riley and Gemma Henderson and Ronelle Van Dongen on the wings reading the game beautifully to lead by three goals at the quarter, and eight goals by half-time. The Falcons strong defensive play in the third quarter was able to shut down what is normally an unstoppable Hoggies attack. Falcons goalkeeper Chrissy Hurst and goal defence and coach Tina Way kept Hoggies to just three goals for the quarter and opened up the scoreline to a 12 goal difference. By the final quarter, Hoggies attack had regained some composure to score 10 goals but it wasnt enough to stave off the Falcons attack. Weve been training hard and focusing on stopping Hoggies attack line, coach Tina Way said. Our attack line was focusing on pressure. I think they missed Shannon Millar their goal defence however we didnt have our star goal attack tonight, Sue Nalder. She was out with a calf injury but Liz Maddock and Lauren OShea in our goal shooter and goal attack played a fantastic game together. Hoggies coach Jade Gooding agrees her teams attack missed the mark against a strong Falcons side but isnt worried by the loss. Were disappointed with the loss but a loss is never a bad thing mid-season, Gooding said. Our attack end certainly didnt stand up to the pressure they put a lot of pressure on. REBEKKA WAKE GREY MORRIS DAVIS Cup tennis is coming to Darwin for the first time and the fans are already lining up to watch big names like Lleyton Hewitt and Nick Kyrgios in action. The historic July 17-19 World Group quarter-final tie between Australia and Kazakhstan at Marrara is the first time in nine years Australia has reached the last eight. Tennis NTs community officer Erin Borman is confident young Territorians will support the event with the sport on school rosters throughout the NT. Our ANZ Hot Shots program is part of a partnership we have with 20 primary and secondary schools across the NT from Darwin to Alice Springs, Katherine and Gove, Borman said. Its a program that is doing very well in the schools and out in the communities, where its been a great product for us. Tennis is growing here with more than 2000 participants. Hot Shots is Tennis Australias official development program, specifically designed to introduce primary school children to the sport. For 11-year-old Julia van den Berg, the Davis Cup action cannot come quick enough. Ive only just arrived in Darwin from England and have been playing tennis since I was six, she told the NT News. I love tennis. Were all very excited about the Davis Cup and the chance to watch players like Lleyton and Nick in action. Another tennis fan, 10-year-old Sidni Finch, wants to meet Kyrgios, whose signature she got in Melbourne.
