com.Marton Fucsovics.Paire survived five match points to eventually win 6-4 6-7(4) 7-6(6) after three gruelling hours of topsy-turvy tennis The fans were treated to another tumultuous match when defending champion Roberto Bautista Agut was shown the door by French veteran Gilles Simon Simon who struggled with his form in a difficult 2017 season had fallen to 89 in the ATP rankings But on Wednesday Simon frustrated his Spanish opponent with his punishing groundstrokes to extend his win-loss record to 5-1 against Baustista Agut Gilles Simon beat defending champion Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets Maharashtra Open The 33-year-old from Nice broke in the sixth game of the opening set and despite the 20th-ranked Spaniard saving a set point while serving at 2-5 Simon had little trouble in closing out the opener 6-3 in 48 minutes Simon produced some delightful shots as he continued to play aggressively in the second set to secure a double break and lead 4-1 Just when it looked like the match was done and dusted Bautista Agut pegged Simon back to 4-4 Bautista Agut looked set to take the match into the decisive third set when he led 5-3 in the tie-break However Simon won four successive points to secure a well-deserved 6-3 7-6(5) win Simon will face another Spaniard in qualifierRicardo Ojeda Lara who later triumphed 6-4 6-4 over BelarusianIlya Ivashka Top seed Marin Cilic a two-time champion at this event was up against home favourite Ramkumar Ramanathan in the big-ticket match of Wednesday The contest between the two big servers was short on long rallies but had plenty of service winners and crafty points at the net Cilic took control of the first set with a break in the fourth game and was largely untroubled despite suffering from a serving lapse at 5-3 He immediately broke back in the next game to win the opener 6-4 In the second set the Croatian dropped just five points on his own serve and a double fault from Ramanathan handed Cilic the all-important break in the second set Top seed Marin Cilic with Ramkumar Ramanathan at the net after their second round match Maharashtra Open Ramanathan tried to ride the loud support in the stands and keep the match competitive but the World No 148 was no match for Cilic’s superior talent and shot-making Cilic marched into the last-16 with a comfortable 6-4 6-3 win and will take on Herbert on Thursday “I gave my best from the first point But when you play against these (top-ranked) players it’s a matter of few points here and there The double fault cost me in the second set and at 5-4 (in the first) I didn’t serve many first serves” Ramanathan said after the loss Second seedKevin Andersonalso started his 2018 campaign on a winning note as he eased into the quarter-finals after his opponent Brazil’sThiago Monteiroretired hurt while trailing 6-7(4) 2-3 Anderson was unable to break Monteiro’s serve in the opener but his superior serving masterclass— the South African finished with 10 aces and dropped only four first-serve points (22/26)— ensured that he was always in the driver’s seat The US Open finalist will next meet seventh seedMikhail Kukushkin who edged past Serbian Djere7-5 7-6(5) Fifth seeded Robin Haase rounded up the action-packed day with a 3-6 7-6(5) 7-5 victory over Argentinian Nicolas Jarry to set up a quarter-final encounter with Paire By Sharanya Gopinathan On June 19 five Adivasi women activists in Jharkand were abducted whilst performing an anti-trafficking themed street play in Kochang village about 90 kilometres from Ranchi They were taken to a nearby forest raped and made to drink urine and the entire attack was videotaped Yesterday morning an unsuccessful raid to arrest the culprits by a 500-strong police contingent was forcibly obstructed by nearly 2000 residents of the village Soon after threepolice officers guarding the house of a parliamentarian were abducted all to prevent the arrest of the two men who masterminded the attack against the five women activists enacting a play against human trafficking I was thinking of this story when I was reading about how many people in the country are raging crying and complaining about a new Thomson Reuters Foundation study that claimed India was the most dangerous country in the world for women The “perception poll” asked 548 gender experts to rank countries on six parameters: non-sexual violence human trafficking cultural and religious practices healthcare gender-based discrimination and sexual assault India fared the worst on sexual violence human trafficking and cultural and religious practices Representational image Reuters The Modi government through the NCW and the Ministry of Women and Child Development has simply rejected the findings of the study outright citing that it is based on the opinion of a few unnamed experts whose qualifications we know nothing about Weirdly the WCD also said that female genital mutilation one of the cultural practices described in the survey doesn’t exist in India which simply isn’t true As it is starting to feel inevitable Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi immediately pointed out that despite the Centre’s stated lack of faith in this survey’s methodology back in 2013 when Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat he had tweeted the results of the previous edition of the same survey (in which India was ranked the fourth worst country for women) asking the UPA when women would feel safe and be a “symbol of positivity” Given that his party isn’t in power right now Rahul Gandhi was happy to tweet the results of this edition of the Thomson Reuters Foundation survey which prompted BJP youth wing president Poonam Mahajan to write an angry essay that included the words “dastardly” “brazenly lying” and “shoot and scoot” accusing Gandhi of slandering a billion Indians Also read on Firstpost:Response to women’s safety poll has been typically sexist and myopic; report should be studied not vilified But the most interesting responses to this survey as usual have come from outside the political establishment Columnist Bikram Vohra published a very angry response to this “Western” study in Firstpost on 26 June This was my personal favourite among all the responses to the study and made me wonder if we were really in 2018 or the real world at all In his column Vohra declared “Surveys like this are grossly hurtful far too casual and slippery in their conclusions” and then went on to display a profoundly hurtful slipperiness in his arguments He set out to make his point that the survey was bogus by making claims like “millennials see no difference between men and women” and that “in sports in executive ladder in science in the arts in cinema and theatre women are on top right across the board” His arguments rely onbets that even the shadiest casino in Goa wouldn’t take “It is a safe bet that 95 percent of Indian men respect their women take care of their families and are good providers (as much as possible)” Heehee It’s impossible at this point not to bring up another Thomson Reuters Foundation’s statistic this one a study that found that a cool 90 percent of rapes reported in India take place at the hands of people known to the victim like relatives and neighbours Or if desi stats are more your style take the latest set of NFHS data which states that 419 percent of Indian men believe that it’s okay to beat your wife for being disrespectful to in-laws for child or house care for cooking badly refusing sex going out without informing the family or suspected infidelity The arguments this columnist made of a country that’s actually quite good for women or to show that India isn’t the worst in the world make for a great example of exactly what plagues the country and makes life so hard for the women in it He makes references to men respecting “their” women and sings praises of the “thousand husbands who get up in the morning and go to work to ensure there is food on the table for their wives and daughters” and the “hundred thousand sons [who] work in the Gulf to send remittances home to ailing mothers and to get sisters wedded” (Perhaps he missed this factoid from a series of pieces by TK Devasia published by Firstpost on migrant workers from Kerala that laid out how “it has been noticed that women send home more money or save more while men spend a good portion of their earnings on personal expenses”) Ideas like these of ownership over female family members and the construction of the ideal family unit in which men work and earn money to provide for their helpless jobless wives and daughters are literally part of the problem or at least feed into the forces that have caused India to be ranked so badly in Thomson Reuters Foundation’s study Journalist Namita Bhandare’s ongoing series of pieces on why Indian women are dropping out of the labour force in droves for example cites the fact that women inevitably have to ask the permission of the men they “belong” to like husbands brothers or fathers in order to work (while it’s an assumed fact that men work and hold down jobs) and the stigma associated with married women working outside the home The opposition to the findings of the study expressed in Vohra’s column seem less rooted in any understanding of the reality of women’s experiences in India and more from a reflexive nationalistic anger that a foreign agency has dared to say that India is worse than Syria Somalia and Pakistan Would he be mollified if we were to go back to fourth place Would it be acceptable if India was merely better for women than Syria It really does feel like it Something about the parochial patriotic anger over being told that Indian women don’t have it so great points you to what’s going on over in Saudi Arabia right now a country that many would imagine to be the worst in the world for women Vohra’s column is filled with outrage on behalf of the nation when the foreign Thomson Reuters Foundation calls the country awful In a sort of neat inverse Saudi Arabian men are currently taking nationalistic credit for the ban on women driving being lifted in their lifetime Forget the decades of painful activism undertaken by Saudi women to be seen as full human beings and the scores of women imprisoned in Saudi jails just for flouting the driving ban What is it about women and their relationship with the nation that makes men take things so very personally Look the Thomson Reuters Foundation survey is not ironclad There’s plenty to point out in opposition to it: its methodology is indeed shaky and you can’t contend that the opinion of 548 anonymous experts makes for irrefutable fact We know that one of its earliest observations that India’s “rape epidemic gets worst by the year [sic]” is both grammatically unsound and factually dubious Thanks to increased awareness and a spate of legal changes like the introduction of the zero FIR Indian women now simply find it fractionally easier to report the rapes that have always been taking place and Narendra Modi’s government has been as useful/useless as any previous government in addressing the causes that lead to sexual violence against women in India Also read on Firstpost —Women’s safety survey: Thomson Reuters Foundation defends its methodology as questions over ‘perception poll’ mount Given the language and parameters it used the Thomson Reuters Foundation study like many others of its ilk also seems to have a visibly colonial eye Did it look as diligently into the actualities of the lives say of American women and the changes that have come their way over the last decade It seems pretty much inevitable right now for example that with the retirement of US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy the controversial Roe v Wade judgement which granted women the right to abortion will be overturned and with the continued defunding of institutions like Planned Parenthood it looks like America will soon be a pretty scary place for women too And of course like some commentators have pointed out there are countries where women live under the guardianship system hundreds of young girls have been abducted and raped in Syria over the last five years and you need four male witnesses to prove rape case in Pakistan But is the point merely to be better than Saudi Syria and Pakistan If we were fourth worst or tenth worst or fifteenth worst on the list could we still look around and feel happy at where we are This morning I read a report in The Print headlined “Tribal politics Naxal campaign overshadow horror of 5 women ‘gang raped’ in Jharkhand” And so apparently they have: no arrests have been made in this horrifying case yet and police and locals seemed locked in a
