French-Wimbledon double since 1969 (Source: Reuters file) Top News Yin and yang Chinese philosophy describes how two seemingly opposing forces are complementary and interdependent Is there a more apt way to describe the relationship between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal The righty versus the lefty Federer’s free-flowing shot-making and point construction a remnant of tennis’s classical era versus Nadal’s brutish ground-strokes and untiring legs a template for today’s baseline slug-fests While less pronounced the contrast is evident off the court as well even extending to their attitude towards facing each other Quizzed about a potential long-awaited first meeting at Flushing Meadows last week Nadal said “If I am in the semifinals no It’s obvious no It sounds very good but… I prefer to play against another player an easier one if it’s possible” Federer’s reply “I’d love to play Rafa here in New York” Rivalries in tennis are unlike any other — high-stakes perpetual and personal The tug of war is what coaxes top players to leave their hearts out on the court The most compelling however are the rivalries with the most contrast Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova come to mind Evert the steady base-liner Navratilova the constant attacker There’s another the rivalry of “Ice and Fire” While Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe had other longer rivalries there’s a reason they don’t make movies about Borg-Connors or McEnroe-Lendl The strikingly different demeanour of the parties involved is what caught the fancy of many The cool Swede almost emotionless on court the petulant American prone to outbursts Much like Evert-Navratilova or Borg-McEnroe there has been no bad blood between Federer and Nadal a rivalry split 23-14 in favour of the latter Not that there wasn’t scope for any With his idol Pete Sampras out of the game and Andre Agassi meandering Federer then 23 had already assumed the throne in 2004 He ran roughshod for three seasons overwhelming all but one pretender The two first met at the Miami Masters in 2004 and the 17-year-old Nadal beat then world No 1 Federer After the loss Federer spoke about the struggle to handle the Nadal’s heavy top-spin and his struggle to counter the high bounce It would take him 13 years a bigger racquet and a rushing backhand to get out of the quandary caused by that deadly topspin A couple of years later the two met on the red clay of Rome A tense five-hour five-set epic which saw Federer waste two championship points and uncharacteristically let his frustration show During the final he looked toward the player’s box and Rafa’s uncle-cum-coach Toni Nadal “Everything all right Toni” “I caught him in the act He was coaching a little bit too much again today” Federer said Nadal replied a day later “He has to learn to be a gentleman even when he loses” Promoters TV moguls and tournament organisers were left salivating After all some animosity a little trash talk would have only driven the two up the charts That never happened They seemed content ruling their respective territories of grass and clay and trading the hard court wins Unlike several other rivalries this one never incorporated personal dislike even when Nadal stormed Federer’s bastion to win the 2008 Wimbledon Today the elder statesmen are back holding the top two spots for the first time since 2011 — a duopoly preferable to the monopoly Novak Djokovic enforced in 2015 The ascent of the gluten-free Serb and worthy contenders such as Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka have eclipsed the great rivalry of our times and Federer and Nadal have been unable to forge a similar relationship with any of them “Our bond is stronger than the one I may have with Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray… I feel the most connected and closer to Rafa” Federer said in 2014 Maybe the two plotted the renaissance last year when their injury lay-offs overlapped But with the younger rivals off with injuries and the youngest not up to the mark the stars aligned Federer and Rafa had a field year running away with the four Grand Slam titles in a 2017 that seems like a throwback to 2007 Perhaps there is a better way to describe the relationship Federer-Nadal: Partners in crime For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by P Chidambaram | Published: September 10 2017 12:15 am Right to Privacy: The UIDAI and its claim of data security will come under scrutiny (AP Photo/Representational) Related News Judgments delivered by Indian courts invariably record the arguments of counsel for the parties to the case In the Privacy case (Justice K S Puttaswamy) decided by the Supreme Court on August 24 2017 the judgment of Justice Rohinton Nariman has (helpfully for the public) recorded the arguments in paragraphs 6 to 10 Let me quote from paragraph 6 of that judgment: “6 Appearing on behalf of the Union of India Shri K K Venugopal learned Attorney General (AG) of India has argued that the conclusions arrived at in the 8-Judge Bench and the 5-Judge Bench decisions should not be disturbed as they are supported by the fact that the founding fathers expressly rejected the right to privacy being made part of the fundamental rights chapter of the Constitution…” In paragraphs 7 8 9 and 10 it was noted that the counsel for the states of Madhya Pradesh Maharashtra Gujarat and Haryana adopted the arguments of the AG and added their own reasons as well: concept of privacy was inherently vague subjective inchoate unsound etc It does not require deductive logic to conclude that the Central government and BJP-ruled states took a common position that was decided upon by the BJP’s leadership: that right to privacy was not and should not be declared a fundamental right The Verdict and the Spin In the end the Supreme Court in a unanimous verdict (9-0) rejected these arguments The Court held that privacy was a sound concept that right to privacy was a fundamental right and that the two earlier judgments were wrong and hence overruled It was a comprehensive rejection of the arguments of the Central government and BJP-ruled state governments After the verdict was delivered the BJP gave it a spin The Central government through its Minister of Law no less claimed that the Court had accepted the government’s stand and the government welcomed the judgment The nine honourable judges who heard the case would have blanched Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad deserves an award for bravery or at least a place in the Indian cricket team The player on the government’s team who emerged with credibility was Mr Mukul Rohatgi the former AG In a candid interview he said had he still been in office as AG he would have admitted that the government had lost the case He also said that in his opinion the judgment of the Court was wrong Exploring ‘Dark Matter’ Declaring a right not explicitly listed in Part III of the Constitution as a fundamental right is not unprecedented The judgment of Justice D Y Chandrachud listed the precedents: * the right to go abroad; * the right against solitary confinement; * the right of prisoners against various fetters; * the right to legal aid; * the right to speedy trial; * the right against handcuffing; * the right against custodial violence; * the right against public hanging; * the right to doctor’s assistance at government hospitals; * the right to shelter; * the right to a healthy environment; * the right to compensation for unlawful arrest; * the right to freedom from torture; * the right to reputation; and * the right to earn a livelihood Justice J Chelameswar described the exercise as exploring “the Constitution’s dark matter” Just as it was exposited in Kesavananda Bharati vs State of Kerala that the Constitution had a basic structure which was beyond the power of amendment in Justice K S Puttaswamy the Court has discovered another gem — that the right to privacy is an inalienable part of the right to life and personal liberty (Article 21) Through Lens of Privacy The implications are far-reaching Every action of the government that affects a person/citizen must now be examined through the lens of the right to privacy The immediate candidate for questioning is linking Aadhaar to a number of activities like income-tax return PAN bank account air ticket school admission etc That was not — repeat not — the original purpose of Aadhaar and is arguably an invasion of privacy Aadhaar was conceived and implemented (cautiously) to ensure that government benefits and subsidies did not go into the hands of the wrong person as a result of duplication impersonation or falsification Cases of ghost students receiving scholarships bogus muster rolls under MGNREGA second or multiple subsidised LPG cylinders obtained under duplicate/multiple identities etc were common Insistence on Aadhaar would put an end to the malpractices However under the NDA government Aadhaar has exceeded its original purpose and has been made mandatory for activities that do not involve government benefits or subsidies The question is why The UIDAI and its claim of data security will come under scrutiny The NATGRID’s authority and mandate must be reviewed The powers of search and seizure telephone tapping off-site surveillance etc have to restricted Section 377 IPC must be struck down (not just read down) LGBT rights need to be acknowledged ‘Know Your Customer’ data-collection data-mining data-sharing and profiling must be regulated ‘Right to be Forgotten’ must be made enforceable Right to die euthanasia and reproductive rights must be debated Justice K S Puttaswamy has enlarged and enriched the freedom that we won in 1947 Today we will celebrate Tomorrow there will be other challenges and those too we shall overcome
