Indonesian racer Mario Suryo Aji faces technical challenges in Moto3 Austria

Mario Suryo Aji (Honda Team Asia) faced a technically challenging race in Moto3 Austria, which was held at the Red Bull Ring Circuit, Sunday (20/8).

Mario was only able to finish in 26th position with a 32 second difference from the race leader, Deniz Oncu (Red Bull KTM Ajo). The second position was won by Daniel Holgado (Red Bull KTM Tech 3) who was only 0.005 seconds away from Oncu.

“To be honest, it was a weekend that I had to forget. I didn’t expect the feeling I had during the race to be worse than during qualifying, where I felt comfortable,” said Mario, quoted from HRC’s official statement, Monday.

Furthermore, Mario said he had tried hard to accelerate his speed at the Red Bull cage. However, he considered that the effort was still unable to produce results because there were technical problems with the chatter of the motorbike.

“In the race, I fought hard, pushed my limits, but the speed I was waiting for did not come. We need to solve this technical problem. My team and I need to find a solution together,” said the racer from Madiun, East Java, that.

On the other hand, the fastest rider for Honda Team Asia was Taiyo Furusato who finished in 18th position. Furusato admitted that he was on the right track to fight for points, however, he was given a long lap penalty because he was deemed to have violated race rules.

“I made a mistake at Turn 2 on the first lap. I almost touched another rider, and to avoid crashing , I cut the chicane and was punished with a long lap penalty,” said Furusato.

There is also Tatchakorn Buasri who went down as a wildcard and finished P23. Representative of Honda Team Asia, Hiroshi Aoyama, said the results of the three racers competing in Spielberg this time would be used as evaluation material to prepare for the next round of racing.

“The result was not what we wanted, but we have to accept this situation and develop from this point. The next race is in Catalunya, Spain, which is a track we are very familiar with and where we want to move forward,” said Aoyama.

Grand Slam champion Djokovic won the Cincinnati title after beating Alcaraz

Novak Djokovic needed five match points and nearly four hours to win over Carlos Alcaraz and claim the ATP Cincinnati Open title on Sunday local time.

A fierce battle between the world’s top two tennis players saw Djokovic — who rallied in the second set — save a match point before advancing to his fifth match point to win 5-7, 7-6(9/ 7), 7-6(7/4) ).

“It’s crazy, I don’t know what to say,” said 23-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic, who was examined by doctors early in the second set because he was too hot in the three hours and 44 minutes of the bout.

“It’s hard to describe. It was the toughest I’ve ever played in my life.”

“From start to finish, we both went through highs, lows, great points, bad plays, heatstrokes , counter-attacks.”

“Overall, this is the toughest and most exciting match I’ve ever been in. It’s a match like this that I keep fighting for.”

The match is another epic chapter of the growing rivalry between the 20-year-old top-ranked Alcaraz and the 36-year-old Serbian star, who avenged his loss to the Spaniard in the five-set Wimbledon final last month Then.

The two — who have alternated at number one this year — are now on level terms holding two wins each in their head-to-head rivalry.

A hard-fought

Djokovic, who claimed a record-extending 39th win at Masters 1000 level, secured the first break of the opening set to lead 4-2.

However, a few minutes later, Alcaraz replied. He then broke to take a 6-5 lead, then held back to take the set before Djokovic left the court to change clothes for seven minutes.

Djokovic, who was clearly affected by the hot and humid conditions, was visited by coaches and doctors in the second set. He trailed 2-1, and Alcaraz then took a 4-2 lead with a drop shot past Djokovic.

However, the winner of 23 Grand Slam titles drew cheers from the crowd when he broke Alcaraz to come back, leveling at 4-4 going into the tie-break.

Alcaraz had a chance to see off Djokovic, but the Serb saved a match point at 5-6 in the tie-break. They advanced to the third when Alcaraz netted on Djokovic’s second set point .

Djokovic headed to the locker room to change again while Alcaraz thumped his right hand in frustration as he sat down.

The fight continues, Djokovic is unable to convert when he serves for the match at 5-4 but two games later manages to eliminate opponents in what the ATP calls the longest triple set final in history tour.

A tired Djokovic walked to the touchline relieved, then got up and tore the front of his shirt in the middle of the pitch while screaming.

“I never doubted that I could finish the match at the most crucial moment,” said Djokovic, adding that the rivalry with Alcaraz was “getting better and better.”

“Carlos is an extraordinary player, I respect him a lot. He is very calm at such a young age,” said Djokovic.

Alcaraz did enough in Cincinnati to ensure he will remain world number one this week, and will be the top seed to defend his title at the US Open which starts next Monday.

Djokovic, who refuses to be vaccinated against COVID-19, is playing his first US tournament in two years.

He returned to the United States, and will now take his winnings to Flushing Meadows.
