Czech ice hockey team fail to impress in opening games at World Championships
"I think we played well during our power plays throughout the game. The first period went our way, but after that we had several chances to score that we didn't take advantage of. Then the Slovenians got back into it...we'll have to take their comeback as a lesson."
The Czech Republic have secured a place in the quarter-finals, but they will be keen to beat Finland, their first serious opposition, on Tuesday evening. A win over the Finns should ensure easier opponents in the next round.
Novak is back in action...
Former Czech tennis number one Jiri Novak returned after a six-month break on Sunday. Novak, at one point ranked fifth in the world, was beaten 6-3 6-4 in the first round of the Rome Masters by Italy's Stefano Galvani.

"I'd like to show the joy I get from playing tennis, and maybe inspire others to play tennis or do something else entirely, to get fit or...write that novel they've been thinking about for years and never got around to...I'd like to inspire people to make the most of their lives, because I do just what I like. I'm really pleased about that and I'm lucky that I can do what I want."
