Scuderia Ferrari F1 Perform a Successful Shakedown of 2020 The Scuderia Ferrari team used a day of photography to test the SF1000. At the moment, the signals are very positive, as there were no unexpected problems and the conditions were completely favorable.However, Wednesday's test will see how the car stacks up with its competitors. After its big appearance at the Romolo Valli theater in Reggio Emilia, the car collected the first kilometers at the Montmelo circuit.Sebastian Vettel got the first shouts in the car in the landing session, before Charles Leclerc took over his training later in the day. Apparently, in this way, Ferrari has used hundreds of kilometers permitted by the FIA, which requires the use of Pirelli demonstration tires.To make matters even better, there were no unexpected gremlins that caused the team's headache. In addition, Vettel and Leclerc enjoy excellent climatic conditions, with ideal temperatures.What's next for Scuderia Ferrari after shakedown?After the successful completion of their removal, the SF1000 will be transferred to Spain. From there, the SF1000 will face its rivals in the first two pre-season test sessions.Sebastian Vettel will get its first crack at the Circuit de Catalunya on Wednesday. After one day, four-time world champion and Charles Leclerc will participate in the driving tasks. Finally, Leclerc will only have the car for him on the last day of the first test.It is true that the Scuderia Ferrari was created as threats last year in the tests. However, the 2019 season itself was a different story. Therefore, Maranello's clothes cannot be complacent this time.It is safe to say that fans will only have a real idea of what to expect when the season already begins in Australia. At this time, all Scuderia Ferrari can do now is sit back and wait for everything to play and see where it stands, compared to Mercedes and Red Bull.Read More: Ferrari Unveil SF1000 Car For 2020 Formula One Season

Novak Djokovic Records Which May Never Be Broken atp tennis news 2020

Novak Djokovic leads the world these days. In the first week of February, Dominic Thiem beat Grand Slam's rival in an epic match. The Serbs feel indisputably King of Australia after extending his record to 8 tournaments down.Novak Djokovic The TitanDjokovic regained first place in the world in the process of raising the Australian Open. Something that might not have been overburdened early in the season, but he wants it all. You only get this good if you want everything, right?Djokovic spent his entire career trying to prove he was the best. He has come close enough to prove that he is not the best, but perhaps the best of all times. Look back and see the months and years when his hegemony was unknown. Beat the best of the best in the biggest stage.With his eighth pilot, he's now approaching 19-year-old Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer 20 years later with his 17th. I have no doubt that he will break the record for the men's Grand Slam titles.While reviewing tennis records, let's take a look at some of the records you already own and are unlikely to be broken soon.Stand of four specialties on three different surfaces.Record four Grand Slam tournaments on three different surfaces should be the first on this list. In 2016, Novak Djokovic finally won his first French Open title to complete his Grand Slam career. He also had three Majors when he did this, which means that he became the first man in the history of tennis to have all Majors on three different surfaces.If that wasn't impressive enough, he also earned the ATP Tour Finals title in his box at the time.Rod Laver and Don Budge previously won the Grand Slam calendar before the open era began, which means they won four major companies in one year. Indeed, Laver accomplished the feat twice, in 1962 and 1969. However, at that time the difficult courts did not exist.Career Golden MastersThere are a total of 9 masters degrees in the tennis season. Novak feels lonely as the only man to have won all the 1000 Masters titles at the ATP World Tour. In the 30-year history of Masters 1000 series, Djokovic is the only man to do that. It was Cincinnati Masters who evaded Serbs for a while, but in 2018, he finally won her to complete the Golden Masters.Roger Federer has seven of nine professors, as Monte Carlo and Roma Masters lose, and they are on the mud. Rafael Nadal also has seven out of nine, because he has never won the Miami Open and Paris Masters in his career..Hat-trick of Sunshine DoubleThe Sunshine Double is when the player wins the Indian Wells Masters and Miami Masters tournaments in the same season. It is one of the most difficult achievements in tennis. Novak won the Sunshine Double 4 times unprecedented in his career. Not only that, the Serbs have won three of these 4 pairs in successive years from 2014 to 2016.Winning once is a big question in itself, and winning it four times is almost impossible. It is unlikely that someone will be able to repeat this feat.More points than 2nd and 3rd rankNovak Djokovic was on assignment in 2015 and 2016. He was almost invincible even after Roland Garros. When he finally lifted the French Open title in 2016, he earned 16,950 ranking points. This was more than the total number of players ranked second (Andy Murray 8,915 points) and number 3 (Roger Federer 6,655 points).Now this is the pure field.Unfortunately, what followed Novak's form was inexplicable and remains one of the biggest shocks in the history of this sport.Most wins against top 10 in a seasonIn 2015, Djokovic was a giant. He absolutely smashed the world's top ten that year with 31 wins against them. In those 31 victories, 6 beat Andy Murray, 5 against Federer, 4 against Nadal, among others. He had nine other players brilliantly shaking with fear.Fastest ATP Tour Finals qualificationNovak Djokovic had a run of 43 consecutive wins since the start of the 2011 season. He qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals after only 18 weeks and 6 days!It is not surprising then that its 2011 season is considered one of the best seasons in the history of tennis..30 consecutive match wins in MajorsDuring the period 2015-16, Djokovic achieved a series of stunning victories in the 30 Grand Slam race. It all started at Wimbledon 2015 and culminated in the Serbian victory in the 2016 French Open, to celebrate the Grand Slams. Nol finally lost in the third round of the Wimbledon 2016 tournament against Sam Quiry.Men's tennis never before seen that this degree dominates the open era.Most elite level titles won in a yearOnce again we go back to 2015 for an incredible record. Djokovic won 10 elite level events in 2015, leaving nothing but scraps to all of his competitors. The titles included all major teams, except Roland Garros, Indian Wells, Miami Masters, Monte Carlo Masters, Roma Masters, Shanghai Masters, Paris Masters and ATP World Tour Finals.Is it an amazing list or what?Read More: The Davis Cup The World Cup of Tennis, Format, Davis Cup History

The draw will take place on 6 and 7 March, and the Croats will face the same team that won the 2018 title.Croatia is expected to advance its best players, Marin Cilic and Borna Coric, against India in the Davis World Cup Qualifiers in Zagreb next month.This is the seventh time in several years that the Indian team has reached the qualifying stage for the elite team competition, but it has not yet reached the global group. The draw will take place on 6 and 7 March, and the Croats will face the same team that won the 2018 title."We can confirm that our team captain, Vedran Martin, is hoping to get the same team that we had against France in the Davis Cup finals 2018 at Lille," said Igor Rajkovic, press officer of the Croatian Tennis Federation at the club. Indian Express This means that it must be disputed by Borna Coric and Marin Cilic.It is still unclear who will be nominated for the doubles match, as Croatia has three players in the top 20 start-up list this week: Ivan Dudej, Mate Pavic, and Nikola Mektic. The official nomination will be published 10 days before the tie. "As such, individual rubber will be challenged by a non-former scientist. 12 Purna Couric (currently thirty-first) and US Open champion Marin Cilic (currently thirty-seventh, but she reached third in the world). As for the double rubber sole, Dodig, ranked No. 10 (formerly No. 4), is the highest ranked player in the Balkan country in the dispute over a tie, along with No. 15 Pavich (Ancient World No. 1) and no. 20 Mektic (formerly not 5).The All India Tennis Federation (AITA), which has appointed a six-member team in the five-man raffle, has appointed its strongest team available. However, there was only one single player from India in the current squad among the top 100 players before, and the number one doubles player is Rohan Bopanna with 41.Indian alignment includes old no. 75 Prajnesh Gunneswaran (now 124), Sumit Nagal (126) and Ramkumar Ramanathan (180). For double rubber, Bopanna leads the line followed by the number. 56 Devin Sharan is the sixth best in doubles in India, veteran Leander Paes (124), who is in his farewell season.Paes, now 46, was part of the tie when the two countries met at the 1995 Davis Cup, the only previous meeting between the two teams. The former world does not. One of the doubles players surprised Goran Ivanisevic to help the hosts win 3-2 in New Delhi.However, since then, Croatia won the title in 2005 and 2018, while this time, the Indians hope to achieve uneasiness to reach the global group for the first time since 2011.Read More: The Davis Cup The World Cup of Tennis, Format, Davis Cup History

Narrower than last season's SF90, with a deeper red coloring the body, Ferrari is pinning its hopes on the SF1000 car earning them drivers and constructors titles that have eluded them for 12 and 11 years respectively.Ferrari presented its new SF1000 for the 2020 Formula One season, which they hope will achieve its first drivers' world title since 2007, during a fabulous celebration on Tuesday. The car's name is aware of the fact that the Italian team will start the 1000th World Championship race during the next campaign, which starts with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 15. Narrower than SF90 last season, with a more intense red. As for the body, Ferrari is confident that the SF1000 will win the title of drivers and builders who have evaded it for 12 and 11 years, respectively."I really love her," said German pilot Sebastian Vettel."It's much narrower in the back compared to last year and it's redder, even better. I'm impatient to drive it, and that will be more exciting than looking at it."Scuderia shattered with tradition and made a new race car outside stronghold of Maranello, and discovered it instead of the Red Sea on stage at the Romulo Valley Theater in the nearby city of Reggio Emilia."This is a very important place for our country," said John Alcan, president of Ferrari."It was in this city where the three-color flag was created, which became the flag of Italy. Ferrari is proud of Italy and of representing Italy.""This is a very special year," said Mattia Pinotto, Ferrari team manager."It has been 70 years since Formula One, we've got there from the start and we'll get to 1,000 Grand Prix numbers, and that's unbelievable."With the exception of the mandatory change in the calendar due to the deadly crown virus in Asia, the teacher must be reached in June during the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal."It might look like an SF90, but I can assure you it's totally different," Pinuto continued."We still have to go ahead, especially in reliability," he added, recalling that Ferrari, like other teams, had to face the "double challenge" of preparing for the next season in parallel with the next season, when new rules came into effect.Equal footingBinotto stressed that Vettel's veteran this season and 22-year-old Charles Leclerc, who first impressed him last season, will start on equal footing."We have seen that both can fight to achieve the best results. Both are at the same level. It is up to them to compete."Vettel, the four-time world champion with Red Bull and a final two times with Ferrari, insisted it was not a difficult decision to accept.The 32-year-old said, "I don't see it that way.""I don't see Charles getting up and down. We have the same car, and for me, it doesn't change anything. This was the case also last season."Last season, the relationship between the experienced Vettel and Leclerc turned into a duel, reaching a critical point when the two drivers clashed during the Brazilian Grand Prix.But Leclerc, 22, who won two races and finished fourth in the world championships, said the lessons had been learned."We learned the lesson from Brazil. We are free to compete, but we are teammates," he said."There are a lot of people working behind us as a team, and things like Brazil shouldn't happen."Both drivers said they were keen to test the new car, which will be on its way next week for pre-season tests in Barcelona."I felt excited when I saw her," said Monaco's Leclerc."Now I can't wait to get on the right track, try it out and show all the work done in this car.""It will be a huge challenge. I am ready to learn from my mistakes and become a better leader.""What we all want at Ferrari is to be the world champion."Read More: David Warner takes step to cricket redemption with top Australia honour

The Six Nations Championship is an international rugby union competition held every year between the six European nations including England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales. All of the six countries are also the six highest-ranked teams in the European continent. Even though participating in the championship is totally based on the historical membership and not by the ranking. Currently, Wales are the Champions as they won the tournament last year. The 2020 Six Nations Championship (also popular by the name "Guinness Six Nations" for the purpose of sponsorship) is going be the 21st Six Nations Championship. It will be held starting from 1st February 2020 till 14th March 2020. The Six Nations tournament always starts on the first weekend of February and ends with the Super Saturday on the second or the third Saturday in the month of March. The Championship has a simple format, i.e., each of the six teams will be playing every other team only once. Hence a total of 15 matches will take place. And the Home ground advantage that will alternate from one year to the next one. All the Six Nations matches will be telecasted live on the BBC or ITV. The matches of Wales will be telecasted on S4C. While FR2 will show the broadcast in France, TV3 in Ireland and DMAX in Italy. In the United States, NBC will be broadcasting every game. When it comes to buying the tickets to the Six Nations, it is going to be a difficult task. This is because the demand is so much more than the supply. Especially the big matches like the ones between England and Ireland or England and Wales. The tickets for these matches get sold out several months before. The Six Nations is the successor to the Home Nations Championship. The Home Nations Championship was held between the year 1883–1909 and between 1932–39. The Championship was played between the teams of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. This was the very first international rugby union tournament. With the addition of France, this became the Five Nations Championship (1910–31 and 1947–99), which in turn became the Six Nations Championship with the addition of Italy. The Six Nations era began in the year 2000. Only Italy has not been able to win the Six Nations title yet. Before the 2017 tournament, the team used to get two points for a win, one point for a draw and no points in case of a loss. The bonus point system was not used earlier unlike the other rugby union competitions. The winners of the Six Nations Championship are awarded the Championship Trophy. After the previous trophy, The new trophy was made that had been designed by Thomas Lyte silversmiths. The Trophy had replaced the 1993 edition trophy. This trophy has been retired because it used to represent only the five nations that participated in the Five Nations Championship. The last team to win the previous trophy was Ireland. Coincidentally, Ireland is also the first team that has won the new trophy. Interestingly, if a team wins all the games, then it is presented with the 'Grand Slam'. There is also the Triple Crown. It can only be won if a team wins all three matches against the other teams. This can only be won by the Home nations including England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Many individual competitions are also played under the tournament. Some of the trophies are also given for the friendly matches between the two teams outside of the Six Nations Championship. Wales are the champions of 2019. They have won all the five games in 2019. This also means that Wales has victoriously claimed the Grand Slam (for winning over every team) as well as the Triple Crown (for winning over the other 'Home Nations', including England, Scotland, and Ireland). The Grand Slam has been won for a total of 39 times. The first Grand Slam was won by Wales in the year 1908. The last Grand Slam was also won by Wales in the year 2019.  England has won the most number of Grand Slams. England has won 13 Grand Slams, Wales won 12, France has won 9, Ireland won 3 and Scotland also won 3 Grand Slams in total. Till now, Italy has not been able to win even one Grand Slam. The fixture schedule for the 2020 Six Nations Championship will start on Saturday, 1st February when Wales will host Italy at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
