Emmanuel LeBesson will be able to curse the draw.

From the first exchanges, the Chinese imposed his game, leaving only three points to the French. A scenario which, unfortunately for the French number 2, has reproduced in each of the four sleeves for a meeting shipped in 24 minutes by Zhendong Fan (11-3, 11-4, 11-3, 11-4).

Why 2021 Katie Ledecky, despite fewer golds, is the best Katie Ledecky yet .
There was a time when Katie Ledecky set her sights on her former self. Toward the beginning of her third Olympic quad, with world records in her back pocket and gold medals around her neck, Ledecky, a prolific goal-setter, wanted to go faster. Ledecky won four golds in Rio. Ledecky, over the past week here in Tokyo, didn’t touch her Rio times. She didn’t break world records. She won only two golds. A reporter asked her Saturday night if she was “bummed” about that. The haul didn’t match expectations that she and others had set for herself. And perhaps there was a time in Ledecky’s life when it would have brought disappointment.
