Wimbledon winner Federer a living legend

Roger Federer won the Wimbledon tennis tournament on Sunday for the seventh time. The Swiss player beat the Scot Andy Murray in four sets. Murray was the first British player since 1938 to reach the mens singles final. The conservative daily Lidové noviny praises Federer for his comeback: "Who would begrudge Andy Murray a grand slam title? On his own turf in Wimbledon of all places, where his countrymen have been awaiting a British victory for 76 years. But the front pages once more show a beaming Federer. ... Few believed he could win again. He's over 30. The younger players seem to play a faster, harder and more precise game. But Federer didn't just pack up and go. He showed everyone that he is the greatest legend of an entire tennis epoch. Murray will give the Brits a Wimbledon victory one day. But yesterday's match belonged to Federer. As a seal of victory on his historic career."

Great opponents for football nobody Plzeň

The Czech football champion club Viktoria Plzeň has qualified for the group stage of the Champions League for the first time, where it will meet FC Barcelona and AC Milan. That was the result of the draw on Thursday in Monte Carlo. The conservative daily Lidové noviny is thrilled: "The German legend Lothar Matthäus pulled out Plzeň's little ball perfectly. With Barcelona and Milan he gave Plzeň the most famous clubs on the continent, teams that send a shudder of delight through every fan. Even if the door to further stages of the Champions League will remain closed as things stand now, there's a good chance for third spot and a place in the Europa League. And what if more comes of it than that? Then the footballers from Plzeň will one day tell their grandchildren how cries of joy rang out not just in the Czech Republic as they defeated true football giants."

Women's football must remain feminine

The Women's World Cup hosted by Germany ended on Sunday with a victory for Japan. Women's football has a great future, writes the conservative daily Lidové noviny and expressly advocates specifically female qualities on the pitch: "Women's football will never be as aggressive or dynamic as men's. But it has particular features that entertain people. The women's game is less tactical, they bluff less, their matches are more dramatic. It would be nice if it stayed that way. It is more likely, however, that women footballers will train to be tougher and will follow modern systems of tactics. That would be a pity, because then women's football would simply be a slower version of men's football. But until that happens we can enjoy women's football as a completely different and therefore entertaining sport."
