anyone able to help?

Here is the incident you are talking about.

Haile Gebrselassie at the 1993 World Championships in Stuttgart: in the last lap, running on the heels of Moses Tanui, and Tanui just lose the race by a very small margin and I think he'd have won, but that's a great unknown.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
