Ninth seed Fognini was trailing 6-0 4-4 against Spain's Zapata Miralles when a line judge reported him for using foul language following a foot fault. Fognini had been given a warning earlier in the match and when the chair umpire informed him of the decision to default him, the 33-year-old stormed off the court. "I didn't tell him anything," Fognini shouted, breaking his racket at the net and throwing it away in frustration as he left the court.

BERLIN — Discussions are underway among military planners with the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission in Kabul for a possible withdrawal of international troops from Afghanistan as early as July 4, Germany's Defence Ministry said Wednesday. If agreed, the date would move up by more than two months the timeline to bring international troops home. “The Resolute Support headquarters in Kabul are currently considering whether to shorten the withdrawal period,” Defence Ministry spokesman David Helmbold told reporters in Berlin. “The 4th of July is now being considered as a pullout date. The ministry informed the (German parliament’s) defence committee about this today.” NATO agreed earlier this month to withdraw its roughly 7,000 non-American forces from Afghanistan to match U.S. President Joe Biden's decision to pull all American troops from the country starting on May 1. Biden has said he wants the process completed by Sept. 11, while NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has only said the withdrawal was expected to be done “within a few months.” Germany, which currently has a little more than 1,000 troops participating in the mission there, so far has said it hopes to complete its part of the withdrawal by mid-August. Asked later Wednesday what the reasoning for mulling an earlier departure is, Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said it “lies particularly in the idea that the shorter the stay in Afghanistan now, the smaller the danger from the Taliban may be.” The Defence Ministry wouldn't comment on which country brought up the idea of a full withdrawal by July 4. Kramp-Karrenbauer said that “whether that in the end will really be the date set for the withdrawal is a decision NATO has to make.” Helmbold, the Defence Ministry spokesman, said that “the nations involved are now examining what challenges that would entail and what the consequences would be."

Nasdaq Inc reported a better-than-expected first-quarter profit on Wednesday, boosted by strength in its trading business against a backdrop of high market volatility and a surge in initial public offerings. The exchange operator posted adjusted net income of $1.96 per share for the quarter, versus estimates of $1.74 per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. A new cohort of retail investors armed with mobile trading apps helped spark a broad surge in trading volumes in the quarter, piling into heavily shorted stocks like GameStop Corp and AMC Entertainment Holdings, to punish hedge funds that bet against them.

TIRANA, Albania — Albania’s president waded deep into the country's parliamentary election campaign Wednesday, accusing the left-wing government of running a “kleptocratic regime” and bungling its pandemic response. In an interview with The Associated Press, Ilir Meta also said he would step down if Prime Minister Edi Rama's Socialists — who are leading the main opposition conservatives in opinion polls — win Sunday's vote. Meta's post is largely largely ceremonial, with some powers over matters concerning the judiciary and the armed forces. His role is also generally understood to be apolitical and the president is meant to be a symbol of the country’s unity. But he has often clashed with Rama's government. “These are decisive elections that will indisputably consolidate Albania’s European future, which is in question, first of all, due to the current prime minister,” Meta told The AP. He proceeded to accuse Rama of running a “kleptocratic regime” and “an ugly copy" of Albania's former communist dictatorship. Sunday’s vote will be decisive in electing the new government with which the European Union is expected to start accession talks — a long-awaited process in Tirana. Irregularities have marred previous elections in post-communist Albania, and campaign tensions are high. The opposition conservatives have been boycotting parliament for the past two years to protest alleged government corruption. Meta accused Rama of concentrating all legislative, administrative and judiciary powers in his hands. Meta claimed that Rama's alleged control of the judiciary occurred despite substantial reforms undertaken five years ago with direct assistance from the United States and the EU — intended to remove corrupt judges and prosecutors. The president also accused Rama of bad management of the COVID-19 pandemic. Albania officially has registered about 2,350 COVID-19 deaths. The Socialists did not respond immediately to a request for comment on Meta’s remarks. Meta started his political career with the Socialist Party, but later left it to form the smaller left-wing Socialist Movement for Integration, or LSI. In 2017, when he was elected president on a five-year term, he left the LSI leadership to his wife. In his interview, Meta said that if Rama’s Socialists win “in a democratic way” a majority in the 140-seat parliament, he would resign. Llazar Semini, The Associated Press

President Joe Biden on Wednesday will announce tax credits to businesses that provide paid time off for some people to get COVID-19 shots as he seeks to get corporate America more involved in the vaccination campaign, officials said. Biden administration officials said the government plans to reimburse businesses for the cost of giving workers as many as 80 hours paid time off to get their shots or recover from any vaccination side effects. The tax credit of up to $511 per day through September for each worker would be given to businesses with fewer than 500 employees, officials said.
A whirlwind 72 hours will conclude this evening with the start of the latest new era at Spurs as interim head coach Ryan Mason will take charge of the team for the first time. Joining the European Super League, Jose Mourinho’s sacking and the collapse of said League has overshadowed Mason’s appointment to the end of the season and he will be looking to make a positive start this evening - in the face of possible fan protests over the ESL. Harry Kane will not be involved, and there remain concerns of the striker’s involvement against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final, but Mason’s team selection will no doubt be interesting with the likes of Dele Alli and Gareth Bale looking to come back in from the cold.
