Cincinnati: Roger Federer said he is eager to make his start at the Cincinnati Masters as the world number two begins his delayed summer hardcourt season.With the US Open a fortnight away, the 37-year-old Swiss is keen to test his form prior to the August 27 kick-off of the last Grand Slam of the season.

I chose to skip Toronto for the health of my body,” the seven-time Cincinnati champion said. “I don’t want to be hurt, there is too much to play.”But the Swiss admitted that sitting out competition is difficult.“Watching from afar is tough,” said Federer, who will start against Peter Gojowczyk after the German beat Portugal’s Joao Sousa 2-6, 6-4, 7-5.“But that’s part of growing older, you’ve got to take care of the body.“It’s nice to be back and I hope to have a good tournament.” Federer last played a match on hardcourt 141 days ago, when he lost in the Miami second round to Thanasi Kokkinakis before skipping the clay season and returning on grass.He said that while he would prefer not to take weeks away, it has now become a necessity in prolonging his fabled career.“You’ve got to keep it all in perspective, it’s easier now for me to take time away. I wish I could play everything but it’s not possible.“I’m more relaxed about my schedule now. I have more time for the family, which is important for me,” the father of two sets of twins said.

AUSTRALIA’s cricketers “would be silly” to turn down Cricket Australia’s proposal for arbitration in their ongoing pay dispute, former captain Michael Clarke has said.CA had suggested the option last Thursday, with a guarantee of rollover contracts, to ensure the tours to Bangladesh, in August, and India, in September and October, go through unaffected.But the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) was wary of the idea because it could result in “significant” delays to the resolution of the pay dispute.ACA chief executive Alistair Nicholson said he would prefer to continue negotiations with the board, but will have a final answer on arbitration “by next week”.Clarke, though, felt it important that the players capitalise on a chance to actually spend some time in the middle. “As a (former) player, I’m saying if a deal’s not done by Monday afternoon allow it go to arbitration because we need this finalised,” he told Channel Nine.“I believe this is definitely going to arbitration, and I think the ACA would be silly to say no to it. The players can’t say no. The players have got to say yes because they’ve got to play.”In the nine months spent deciding on a new Memorandum of Understanding between CA and ACA, one tour has already fallen by the wayside – Australia A’s to South Africa – leaving some of the nation’s best players with little to no practice ahead of what is expected to be a tough visit to the subcontinent.Bangladesh beat England in Dhaka last year, taking all 10 wickets in a session and similar spinner-friendly conditions might await Steven Smith’s men. Facing India for one-day cricket in their own conditions will be a daunting prospect as well.Clarke felt it imperative that the players face such challenges if they are to be ready to win back the Ashes in November-December. “This team cannot afford to miss one game of cricket if we want to beat England in the Ashes,” he said.“We need to go to Bangladesh, we need to go to India for the ODIs, and then we need to play our best cricket to beat England in Australia, which I believe we will if we’ve played some cricket together as a team.“The players are not CEO of a business or general manager of a business. That’s not their responsibility. This needs to be done between CA and the players’ association, and the players need to do what (they) know best and that’s to play this game we love.”If a peace deal cannot be brokered between CA and ACA as their chiefs James Sutherland and Nicholson meet again over the weekend, and it does go down to arbitration, Clarke tweeted that the “players will win.”Despite the uncertainty surrounding Australian cricket’s immediate future, CA has confirmed that day one of this summer’s Ashes series against England – November 23 at the Gabba – was already sold out, with day two close to a sellout as well.
