Solutions

1:C - Korpatsch said: “Unfortunately my doubles partner retired from our doubles today. She just texted me this morning. Let me wait here until one hour before the match start. I’m very sad, disappointed and also very angry that I can’t play my first doubles grand slam. It’s really not fair for me. I didn’t deserve that. She asked me before the tournament if we wanna play doubles and I said yes. I didn’t ask her, she asked me! If you’re broken after a three-hour match the day before, you can’t play professional. That’s my opinion.”, 2:C - New Zealand lost five Tests in a row in 1998. , 3:C - Northern Ireland, who are in the same group as England and Austria, play Norway in their first group game on Thursday night., 4:D - Sweden beat England in the final in 1984., 5:C - England will be hoping to join that list this year., 6:D - The first three stages are in Denmark before the race moves to France., 7:D - One of the grandstands in Galle fell amid heavy rain and ferocious winds., 8:C - Iván Zamorano would approve., 9:D - He was playing for Ireland at the time.
