on a sour note Simona Halep is hoping she can savour a much sweeter ending at Wimbledon The Romanian went into last month’s Roland Garros final against then 47th-ranked Jelena Ostapenko as the overwhelming favourite to win the French Open title When she was a set and 3-0 up it seemed as if she was minutes away from becoming the first Romanian to win a grand slam crown since her manager Virginia Ruzici in Paris in 1978 Yet astonishingly Ostapenko blew a hole into that theory and into Halep’s psyche by belting winners from the baseline to become the first Latvian to win a major The defeat hurt – really really badly “I watched the final after few days (at) home” said Halep following her 7-5 6-3 second-round win at Wimbledon over Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia “Of course I would change something if I have to repeat the match that final To be more aggressive when I was leading “But to be honest I’m not thinking any more of that match because I was suffering about that result It’s already gone” added Halep who finished runner-up in Paris for the second time in four years “I’m here I’m just trying to make another chance to go to the end of the tournament” To add to her woes the Paris meltdown also denied her a chance to become world number one Halep is once again in the mix to claim that coveted ranking at the end of Wimbledon but after her Paris heartache she does not want to think too far ahead “I’m not thinking about (being number one) I had some chances also in the final in French Open but I didn’t get it Of course it’s a nice goal for me to get the No 1 but it’s not easy” said Halep who will next face China’s Peng Shuai In keeping with her policy to stay as stress-free as possible during her pursuit of a maiden Wimbledon title Halep has rented a house within walking distance of the All England Club to save herself the commute of travelling in from the tournament’s official hotel in central London “It’s first time when I stay here in the village I have a house very nice house I’m just chilling” she said “I had some bread with Nutella in the morning This is my dessert for this tournament” she added with a smile For all the latest Sports News

Collective is chief curator of the 11th Shanghai Biennale which began this month and continues till March next year Titled “Why Not Ask Again: Arguments Counter Arguments and Stories” the show has more than 92 artists from 40 countries Excerpts from an interview with Narula: With censorship in China what did you need to leave out as part of your curation It would be far-fetched to think that any major exhibition in the world would take place today without some amount of scrutiny The Power Station of Art where the Shanghai Biennale takes place is a state-supported institution and subject to the normal restraints that affect such an institution That said the exhibition has a range of works that maintain a sensitive yet critical edge — with regard to social ethical and political questions — that are relevant to Chinese audiences and to the world We were able to negotiate and achieve a great deal of openness Except for one instance which discussed the conduct of European states towards refugees we have exhibited all the 92 works at the show Imagine that an exhibition is like a human body with many organs many systems Like the body any event or process in contemporary art has to build its own immunity It is a question of the overall health of the exhibition and the overall ecosystem of the arts No one organ can fight this on its own The auto-immune apparatus has to be a networked response across many exhibitions biennales and initiatives An exhibition is also about the people who move in that space How did this consciousness affect your curation We were clear that the experience of the Biennale has to be achieved through a triangulation of the analytical the intuitive and the fabulous; through an intersection of reason sensate intelligence and the power of stories; between the dream-like quality of film the expressive power of dance the vividness of an image and the incisive insight of poetry A visitor will find their curiosity aroused their assumptions challenged and their bodily sensations and affective responses addressed in a variety of ways Do issues of climate change pollution terrorism make it to the Biennale This Biennale takes on the nature
