The Sport Matrix: Friday 27 June 2014

Watson slams young players

Heather Watson joined in the criticism of some of the host nation’s youngsters after crashing out of Wimbledon to Angelique Kerber. The Brit said she had seen British juniors “choosing when they want to work” while their coaches “let them get away with it”. MORE

Bautista: ‘Can I play Andy at football?’ 

Andy Murray and Roberto Bautista Agut play at Wimbledon today. Both could have been footballers: Murray turned down a place at Rangers’ academy, and Bautista, once at Villarreal, joked: “I would have more chance of beating Andy at football.” MORE

Dhawan flourishes before injury scare

India piled on the runs against Leicestershire on the first day of their tour, closing on 333-4. India’s only moment of worry came when Shikhar Dhawan, on 60, suffered a painful blow to his right arm, but a spokesman said there was no injury. MORE

Shaw set to join Herrera at United

Luke Shaw was reported to be undergoing a medical at Old Trafford last night ahead of a move from Southampton to Manchester United. This follows United signing of midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao. MORE

Nadal survives second Rosol scare

Rafael Nadal battled back to beat Lukas Rosol 4-6 7-6 6-4 6-4 yesterday, as the Spaniard avoided a repeat of his shock second-round Wimbledon defeat by the Czech in 2012. “If he plays well, it is difficult for everybody, not just me,” Nadal said. MORE

Ujah set to seize his chance in 100m

James Dasaolu is not fit enough to run the 100m at the British Championships, which starts tonight. With Adam Gemili also absent, eyes will be on Chijindu Ujah, the fifth-fastest man in the world this year. MORE

Nick Bollettieri

Oh baby Grigor Dimitrov, who plays Alexandr Dolgopolov at Wimbledon today, is exciting. Grigor can make it to the top. Watch out everybody, he is for real. He has a game it’s darn impossible not to like. MORE

Suarez in legal battle over his four-month ban

Luis Suarez was at the centre of an extraordinary legal battle last night as Fifa gave him an unprecedented four-month ban from “all football related activities” after his bite on Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini.

The Uruguay Football Federation will appeal the ban but Liverpool are taking legal advice to establish, amongst other things, whether they also have grounds to  challenge the suspension.

Suarez was banned for nine competitive international matches and fined £66,000 by Fifa’s disciplinary committee as well as being given the ban, which will prevent him from playing, training or even going into a football stadium. MORE

Germany and US ease through

Germany defeated the US 1-0 as both teams sealed their progress from the group. Thomas Muller scored the only goal in the 55th minute - the 24-year-old’s fourth goal of the tournament. The result meant Joachim Löw’s side topped the group, with Jurgen Klinsmann’s US finishing in the runners-up spot. MORE

Agony for Portugal and chaotic Ghana

Cristiano Ronaldo struck late on to earn Portugal a 2-1 victory over Ghana, but the result was not enough for either side to progress. Ghana went into the crucial final group game in shambolic fashion, after Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari were sent home for apparent indiscipline. MORE

Schneiderlin hears England’s pain 

Morgan Schneiderlin says that England’s Southampton players acknowledged they felt “the pressure” in Brazil. “I spoke with some of them,” said the Saints midfielder, who is preparing for France’s round-of-16 contest against Nigeria. “Of course they are very disappointed but it’s football.” MORE
