backhands out there I love how he can crush it down the line or cross-court He’s got wonderful second serve returns He’s fast on his legs Strong in his mind I know how tough he is as the match goes along He finds his range and his rhythm he’s tough to stop” Federer said he’ll need another strong service game if he’s going to give Nishikori some trouble In Federer’s win over Tomas Berdych on Thursday he didn’t face a break point and he won points on 95 percent of the first serves he got into play – 39 of 41 and all 16 in the third and final set “This one’s going to be completely different to Tomas … there’s going to be more rallies even though the surface remains fast I said it at the beginning of the week it’s not easy to control the ball Today again when you serve well it pays dividends I hope I can keep that up against Kei” Asked if Nishikori should be considered the favorite because of the No 5 seeding (Federer is 17th after a six-month left knee injury layoff) Federer

"sufficient evidence" the Canadian government has told India that there is no threat to Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh and has concluded its investigation into the matter In a communication to the Indian authorities Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs Trade and Development has stated that the investigation had been conducted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Sources in the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in New Delhi told IANS that the Canadian authorities in the communication has said that the RCMP investigation has determined that there is no evidence of direct physical threat made towards Amarinder Singh It further stated that there was "not sufficient evidence" to file criminal charges or proceed against anyone The Canadian government said that in view of the findings the investigation had been concluded The Indian High Commission in Canada had lodged a "formal complaint" to Global Affairs-Canada (Canada’s foreign office) in April following a threat publicly issued to the Punjab Chief Minister by pro-Khalistan elements during a Vaisakhi Day event in British Columbia’s Surrey city Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh Reuters The threat was part of the hate speeches made by Sikh radicals operating out of Canada Videos of the Vaisakhi Parade in Surrey on 22 April were sent to the Canadian foreign ministry as proof Indian authorities had also objected to the public display of Khalistan floats with images of slain separatist leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and other terrorists pictures of AK-47s and photographs of former and serving army and police officers who are on the hit-list of Sikh radicals MEA sources said that the Canadian authorities were cautioned about the "anti-India propaganda" of the Khalistani elements as India was anticipating trouble The Canadian foreign ministry responding to the early warning said it would take "necessary action" However the Khalistani elements were allowed to have a free run and even issued threats on loudspeakers to Amarinder Singh in front of hundreds of people from the Indian community who participated in the 22 April parade The Canadian provincial police and security agencies were present when all this happened the sources told IANS Amarinder Singh on Friday again stressed the need for Canada to rein in the radical elements who were "trying to use Canadian soil to spread strife and divisiveness in India" The chief minister raised the issue with Jalandhar-born Canadian MP Rameshwar Singh Sangha who met him in New Delhi on Friday "Such elements including Khalistani supporters could not have any impact on the Canadian political environment but they could influence the people of India and vitiate the atmosphere here" Amarinder Singh pointed out "The Canadian government should crack down on these forces and ensure that they do not have a free run on social media and other public platforms the chief minister added The Amarinder Singh government had in April cold-shouldered visiting Canadian defence minister of Indian-origin Harjit Singh Sajjan as he travelled to various places in Punjab He had refused to meet Sajjan the first Sikh to be the defence minister of a Western country accusing him and other ministers of Punjab origin in the government of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of links to radical elements demanding a separate Sikh state of Khalistan No minister or senior officer of the Punjab government went to welcome Sajjan or even accompany him during the visit Amarinder Singh made it clear that he "would not meet any Khalistani sympathisers" He was annoyed with the Canadian government since April last year when he was denied permission to visit that country which has a sizeable Punjabi Diaspora in the run-up to the Punjab assembly elections A radical organisation Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) had complained to the Canadian government against the visit The Congress leader had to cancel his trip after being told by the Canadian authorities at the last minute that he could not be allowed to visit the country for holding political rallies and meetings The visit was aimed at wooing influential Non-Resident Indian
