The tennis boys lost 2-3 to Lithuania in Roquebrune (Davis Cup). They were 2-1 in front after the first two days but lost their last two matches. (Last one due to a thigh injury). No mention of tennis-adoring barbie being there, but Lithuania isn't SA and she doesn't get out of bed to cheer on Monaco.
And Daniel Elena (rally co-driver) has been chosen as a member of the FIA's drivers' committee.
With only one more match to go this season, ASM has an unbeatable lead and will end in first place. Which means promotion back to the first league, provided they figure out their non-taxpaying issues with the French soccer union/foundation/whatever.
Last match next Friday (24th) against Tours and Monaco leads with 73 points. The second one is Nantes with 68 points.
Perhaps not really considered a "sportive achievement" but this is coming up this Saturday night. Wonder if Daddy W is part of it? Neither boxer is from SA. He might just show up to "keep his finger in the pie."
