Nadal and Murray not in top form

With less than 10 days left to prepare for the US Open, Rafael Nadal, the world No 1, and Andy Murray, the No 4, were far short of top form as they both lost in the quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters.

With less than 10 days left to prepare for the US Open, Rafael Nadal, the world No 1, and Andy Murray, the No 4, were far short of top form on Friday, as they both lost in the quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters. Spraying balls all over the court, an erratic Nadal was beaten 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 by the unseeded Marcos Baghdatis. Nadal committed 30 unforced errors in the first two sets and double-faulted on break point in the ninth game of the third set.

Nadal blamed most of his problems on his backhand. "My game can improve, that's for sure," he said. "I have to keep working to improve my confidence with the backhand. My feeling with the forehand is good, but I still had too many unforced errors. For a lot of reasons, I played badly at important moments." Murray, playing his eighth afternoon match in 10 days, lost 6-7 (6-7), 6-1, 7-6 (7-5) to the unseeded Mardy Fish in a match that lasted 2 hours, 56 minutes - the tournament's longest - on a court where the temperature reached the high 30°C (100°F).

"In the third set, I wasn't really using my legs at all on my serve," said Murray, who needed cooling treatment, including rub downs on both legs, during many changeovers. "It was all arm. Every time there was a long point, I felt tired for two or three points afterward. When you get to the end of the match, you just try to finish as best you can." * Associated Press

How Filipinos in the UAE invest

A recent survey of 10,000 Filipino expatriates in the UAE found that 82 per cent have plans to invest, primarily in property. This is significantly higher than the 2014 poll showing only two out of 10 Filipinos planned to invest.

Fifty-five percent said they plan to invest in property, according to the poll conducted by the New Perspective Media Group, organiser of the Philippine Property and Investment Exhibition. Acquiring a franchised business or starting up a small business was preferred by 25 per cent and 15 per cent said they will invest in mutual funds. The rest said they are keen to invest in insurance (3 per cent) and gold (2 per cent).

Of the 5,500 respondents who preferred property as their primary investment, 54 per cent said they plan to make the purchase within the next year. Manila was the top location, preferred by 53 per cent.
