After a five-set victory in singles over Viktor Troicki that began at 11:30 a.m., he returned to the same court two hours later to play his third-round doubles match with partner Jack Sock. By the time Pospisil finished with the media after the doubles, he had been on site over 12 hours – most of it either playing tennis, or doing recovery between the two matches, including a little ice-bath intermission.

  • China rolls out emergency measures to prevent stock market crash

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's stock markets face a make-or-break week after officials rolled out an unprecedented series of steps at the weekend to prevent a full-blown stock market crash that would threaten the world's second-largest economy. In an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank. China has also orchestrated a halt to new share issues, with dozens of firms scrapping their IPO plans in separate but similarly worded statements over the weekend, in a tactic authorities have used before to support markets.
