2016 Australian Open

Bankers Guru

The 2016 Australian Open was a tennis tournament that took place at Melbourne Park between 18–31 January 2016. It was the 104th edition of the Australian Open, and the first Grand Slam tournament of the year. The tournament consisted of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair players competed in singles and doubles tournaments.

Novak Djokovic successfully defended the men's singles title and thus won a record-equalling sixth Australian Open title. Serena Williams was the defending champion in the women's singles but failed to defend her title, losing to Angelique Kerber in the final; by winning, Kerber became the first German player of any gender to win a Grand Slam title since Steffi Graf won her last such title at the 1999 French Open.

As in previous years, this year's tournament's title sponsor was Kia.

Men's Singles

World number one Novak Djokovic hammered a misfiring Andy Murray in straight sets to win a record-equalling sixth Australian Open title and strengthen his grip on men's tennis.

The Serbian world number one swept to a 6-1, 7-5, 7-6 (7/3) victory in two hours, 53 minutes to hand Murray his fifth defeat in the Australian Open final.

Djokovic equalled the tally of Australia's Roy Emerson, who won the tournament six times between 1961 and 1967, an achievement that has gone unmatched in the 49 years since.

It was also Djokovic's 11th Grand Slam title, and he moved into equal fifth place with Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg behind 17-time leader Roger Federer.

Women's Singles

Angelique Kerber upset Serena Williams 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 to win the Australian Open title, ending the six-time champion’s unbeaten streak in finals here and winning a major title for the first time.

Williams was an overwhelming favourite at Melbourne Park, where she had won all six previous times she’d reached the final, and was trying to equal Steffi Graf’s Open-era record of 22 Grand Slam singles titles.

For the second time in as many majors, though, she fell short.

Williams won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon titles last year before losing to Roberta Vinci in the US Open semi-finals. She was so close to a calendar—year Grand Slam in 2015, but has no chance to push for that honour after losing the first major of the year.

Men's Doubles

Jamie Murray booked his place in a third consecutive Grand Slam final as the Brit and Brazilian Bruno Soares cruised to victory in the last-four of the Australian Open.

It took all of 56 minutes for seventh seeds Murray and Soares to see off the unseeded French pair Adrian Mannarino and Lucas Pouille 6-3, 6-1 on Rod Laver Arena.

Murray reached the final at both Wimbledon and the US Open last year with Australian John Peers before the pair split up at the end of the season.

Women's Doubles

Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza maintained their perfect record in Grand Slam doubles finals, beating the Czech pair of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 7-6, 6-3 at the Australian Open on Friday to extend their winning streak to 36 matches on the way to a third major title.

Mirza and Hingis beat Hlavackova and Hradecka in two tight, topsy-turvy sets 7-6 (1), 6-3 in a match that lasted one hour, 49 minutes.

The win marks the 12th title together, the third straight Slam and the 36th consecutive win for the Indo-Swiss duo, popularly dubbed SanTina on social media.

Mixed Doubles

Bruno Soares secured his second Australian Open title by winning the mixed doubles alongside Elena Vesnina.

The Brazilian returned to the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Sunday just 16 hours after capturing the men's doubles crown with Britain's Jamie Murray.

But Soares coped admirably with the quick turnaround as he and Russian Vesnina won the last four points of the match tiebreaker after going 3-0 down to triumph 6-4 4-6 10-5 against American Coco Vandeweghe and Hora Tecau of Romania.

Q.1-10. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some questions.

This year, Delhi University has pointed to the shape of things to come in higher education. While primary and secondary education remain essentially broken, having failed to adequately serve the majority of the population, they are yet producing enough aspirants to cause a demand crisis in higher education. With cutoff marks at Delhi University slowly tending towards 100 per cent, the system that has served students and institutions for three decades is failing. 

It is encouraging students to try their luck overseas, reinvigorating the brain drain precisely when it is being reversed by uncertainties and visa restrictions abroad. It is also urging students to fall back on quotas for extra-curricular activities, though the university system in India does not prioritise them. A promising basketball player in the US will be sought out by leading universities, but this does not happen in India. However, cutoffs are not the problem because the extraordinary pressure on seats would persist even if they were reduced to zero per cent. Cutoffs simply reduce the number of candidates that universities and colleges have to process. The real problem is the widening gap between the demand and supply of higher education. 

This gap can be narrowed only by the rapid deployment of hundreds, if not thousands, of new institutions. Teaching shops should be discouraged and standardisation promoted, so they should be rooted in existing educational canons. The government has tried to get up to speed by pushing the Foreign Educational Institutions Bill of 2010. Despite a cabinet nod, it languishes. To bypass the need for legislation, it has also called upon the UGC to formulate guidelines for twinning Indian universities with their peers overseas, a policy that is followed in technical education. However, fresh legislation is necessary for a sweeping change, for which the government must convince Parliament that the now-visible crisis in Delhi University is only a forerunner of a general disaster in higher education.

Q.1. Why do students depend on extra-curricular activities for their admissions overseas?

(1) They get priority based on extra-curricular activities 

(2) They are rejected if they show grades of extra-curricular activities

(3) Foreign countries promote extra-curricular activities

(4) Their talents are honed if they participate in extra-curricular activities

(5) None of these

Q.2. Why, according to the passage, there would be pressure on seats even if cutoffs are removed?

(1) Number of candidates gets reduced 

(2) The seats would be given to those who are economically sound

(3) The candidates would study hard to get good scores.

(4) The gap between demand and supply of higher education

(5) Not mentioned in the passage

Q.3. What is meant by ‘sweeping change’ as mentioned by the passage?

(1) Insight 

(2) Advancement 

(3) Drastic change 

(4) Description 

(5) Inspiring change

Q.4. Why has the author given the example of Basketball player?

(1) To prove how popular Basketball is ,in other countries

(2) To show that, in India, education system does not value individual’s talents if his scores are not good

(3) To prove that foreign universities are incapable of judging the candidates

(4) To show that those who are good in sports are equally good in studies

(5) All of the above

Q.5. Which of the following has asked the UGC to formulate guidelines ?

(1) The President 

(2) The government 

(3) The university Chancellor 

(4) The students 

(5) The Supreme Court Judge 

Q.6. Which of the following is TRUE , according to the passage?

(1) Cutoffs in Delhi university is going to cross 100 percent level

(2) In technical education , Indian universities remain aloof from their peers in foreign countries.

(3) Cutoffs increase the number of candidates universities or colleges process

(4) Primary and secondary education remain unconnected, in the present scenario.

(5) The gap between demand and supply of higher education is gradually decreasing
