It was also Djokovic's 11th Grand Slam title.
$1.4M IN FIFA FUNDS MISSING IN GUATEMALA?
NEARLY US$1 million (S$1.4 million) in funds from football's global governing body Fifa may have gone missing from Guatemala's football federation last year, according to sources and an internal audit seen by Reuters.
The Guatemalan federation's budget presented early last year totalled about US$1.5 million but only included about US$250,000 in Fifa funding, according to sources. The federation's year-end spending report excluded additional deposits.
FINA SUSPENDS MEXICO SWIMMING FEDERATION

Fina did not say what impact the suspension would have on Mexican swimmers in the lead-up to the Rio Olympics in August.
