David Dein is be­ing fast-tracked to help the Eng­land 2018 World Cup bid. With Lord Tries­man (chair­man) and Si­mon John­son (chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer) al­ready on the bid team, Dein, the for­mer Arse­nal vice-chair­man, was tipped to be ap­pointed a non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. Fol­low­ing the ad­di­tion of Kar­ren Brady and Paul El­liott, Dein, the for­mer chair­man of the G-14 group of lead­ing clubs, could yet join the bid in a more se­nior ca­pac­ity.

GB Mac­cabiah cap­tain Sam Sloma was on tar­get against his old club as Wok­ing beat Chelms­ford City in the Blue Square Premier.

Dudi Sela’s post-Davis Cup slump con­tin­ued as he crashed out of the Shang­hai Mas­ters at the first-round stage. Beaten for the sev­enth time in eight matches, Sela, 24, went down against China’s ShaoX­uan Zeng, ranked 396 in the world.

Sha­har Peer, 22, lost in the first round of the Ja­pan Open. She was beaten in three sets by Sa­nia Mirza, her for­mer dou­bles part­ner.
