Frustration and bad luck, and Lausbubentor


The Power was with him

Goodbye: Phil Taylor. Photo: Getty

Flaming, the master of ceremonies says the well-known Verse for the last Time: "It's time to meet the record breaking, history making, 16-time champion of the world." Hundreds speak with the praise. Goosebumps. Then, Phil Taylor enters with wet eyes on stage. He, thanks to the Darts from a simple factory worker to a millionaire and a legend rise. After this appearance on new year's day final.

farewell, Taylor is once again in the world Cup Final – the 17. Title tangible. His nickname "The Power" he can no longer meet. Against Newcomer Rob Cross, he is powerless. Taylor will be adopted with Confetti. From the boxes Viva la Vida blaring of Coldplay. In the case of a set of Darts-king, sings earnestly: "I used to rule the world." (cst)


Federer's match ball

The thing seems to be carved. A point Roger Federer missing to his 18. To win game of the season to Refine his best start of the season. He has been in the Final of Indian Wells in the 3rd Set to 5:4 gebreakt, leads 40:15. Two match points, on serve. To win "90 percent of the I," he will say later. Confused, baffled, perplexed.

Much he makes in his total of three match balls in the wrong. But against Juan Martin Del Potro, the giant from Tandil is him, and punishes the smallest Subside immediately. He attacked, breaks, wins.

After that, for Federer, nothing more, as it was. The winner of three of the last five Grand Slam tournaments back on earth, loses again and finishes the year as number 3. Highlights in sports can end abruptly. (rst)


Grinning over

goal: Tristan Scherwey. Photo: Keystone

I am learning to Tristan Scherwey on the highway. Between Bümpliz and lower cheeks. I drive quickly. He drives faster. Overtakes me. Sunglasses, Hand Movement, Smile. All-inclusive. Nine years ago.

It's the time to come, as Scherwey at SC Bern in the first team. When he's CEO Marc Lüthi week for a week on the toes. As it sports chief Sven Leuenberger with Michel from Lönneberga compares. As many like him, but few him some confidence.

And now? Scherwey has remained the Rascal and Leader. His goal for 1:0 for Switzerland in the world Cup semi-final against Canada, my Moment of 2018. At this pace, he overtakes two Canadians – almost like being back on the highway. Alone: This Time, he pulls over to the left. (REC)


love greetings in Moscow

write The Russians at the football world Cup is a (sporty) summer's tale. And on 1. July, increases the magnificent mood in Moscow to the climax, because the host, Russia, shooting a sensational win on penalties after the quarter-finals against Spain. Moscow is transformed into a Mediterranean party town, which is also the fact that many of the thousands of Latin American supporters are to travel in the city.

strangers are in the arms of and celebrate the whole night together, for a few hours is allowed in the streets of Moscow, which is normally prohibited. The enthusiasm in the country lasts for six days – then Russia will fail in the quarter-finals in Croatia. After The Penalty Shoot-Out. (FRF)


Iouri unlucky

It was in the middle of the summer, in the midst of the six-ringing place. Iouri Podladtchikov was sitting on a chair, talked about his life, and was always disturbed. Of Tourists. They wanted a photo with the Opera house in the Background and asked the Olympic medalist to help – without knowing that they asked a Olympic champion. There are scenes that stand as a metaphor for podladtchikov's season. The Snowboarder should not do what he does best. Snowboarding. Only he has to cancel his Start at the Olympics, the consequences of a cerebral hemorrhage, preventing him from defending his title. Then he was diagnosed with a stomach tumor and, later, on a stomach ulcer corrected. In December, now it hit him again hard in the snow. Brain concussion. Again, Pause. (czu)


Rappi, the Cup-shock

"Hey, Rappi-Jona" persist to the present day. The Fans drove their Lakers at the 4. February in the Cup final to Triumph. 7:2 the under-class of the St. Gallen beat the record Champions from Davos. Players and fans shed tears of joy, later they celebrated the title with a free night in the old town. Lugano (3:0), train (5:1) and Ajoie (4:0) had been turned off on the way to the final.

Well two and a half months later, Coach Jeff Tomlinson led his Team in the League qualification against Kloten with 4:3 Wins back in the National League, which the city glowed again. In the highest play class of the ascenders won until now, only four games – the Lakers proved once again as a Cup shock. In the Final in February, you want to defend the title. (ddu)


Fair win

Dominic Thiem is at the US Open in the third sentence of 2:4, but has a break ball. Taylor Fritz served, the linesman screams "out". As Thiem calls on his opponent to demand the video evidence, what does Fritz: ACE and deuce instead of a second serve, and potential service breakthrough. After the Match, the Austrian said: "If the Ball is clearly on the line, then I say this. So, I am."

Doping, swallows, corruption, betting fraud, which is too often the most beautiful shows in the world its ugly face. Because it is simply heart-warming, if any, although much of honor and much more money on the game, real sports spirit is proof of this. What is the history of a particularly beautiful: Thiem has managed to make the turn anyway. (ädu)


look inside

The Biel chess festival has been around for many talents, is an important stage. Even Magnus Carlsen has made its debut in 2005 as a 14-Year-old. This summer, he traveled for the first time as a world champion. It is his last singles tournament was the title bout against Fabiano Caruana. However, as in the months before it ran him around.

If the Norwegians tricky variants are concerned, at his glance, the returns to themselves in the midst of a conversation inside. You could see them, well after his second draw against Peter Swidler, as he gave autographs. At the end of the round he was in the company of his mother in the direction of the Hotel. Immersed in an intense conversation, rushed road, the Duo unmolested by Bieler. (be)



The most influential experience at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, for me, in spite of all the Swiss successes, not sporty, but the bus tour in the demilitarized Zone between South and North Korea. Tourist guide, Kathy, told us of the suffering that brought the conflict about a lot of families. By the telescope we peer over the border.

In sports are pushed, limits, but those between the two Korea's since the age of 65 immovable. Also in the future? Maybe it was just a political charade. But the games are also signs of rapprochement. Kim Jong-un sent cheerleaders to the South, a common women's ice hockey team. It may be naive, but it is to be hoped that the winter games have favored a Korean spring. (sg)

Conclusion: Matthias Sempach family. Photo: Raphael Moser

It is a special Scenery on the intra-Swiss in Ruswil. In the voice arena it's loud, because Joel Wicki and the eventual winner, Christian Stucki spectacle. Outside it is silent, as Matthias Sempach after the 5. Gear pulls back. Just a Fan asks for an autograph. "I don't know how long it has been since I was in front of the last gear with no Chance of the crown", he quarrels. So much So he was happy to Comeback, so great is his frustration. Rank 15c.

What is the tuning king 2013 and Kilchberger winner of the 2014 don't know yet: Ruswil will remain his last Wreath. To be more damaged body no longer makes. Later, at the Bernese Cantonal, he put on their drill trousers on the nail. In a stylish frame. And yet it is not the finish, of this large transducer had dreamed of. (atr)
