Novak Djokovic of Serbia returns a shot against Adrian Mannarino of France during the Cincinnati Masters. (Rob Carr/Getty Images/AFP) Wimbledon champion Djokovic called for the doctor during the second set against Mannarino but put aside his discomfort to progress 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 over the Frenchman before rain halted afternoon play. "I wasn't feeling well, I didn't have a great night and wasn't feeling that well for the first set and a half," said Djokovic, who has won every Masters 1000 title except Cincinnati. "I kind of made it through, and with the help of the doctor and God ... I'm just, you know, happy that I managed to overcome the challenge.

Industrial revolutions are momentous events. By most reckonings, there have been only three. The first was triggered in the 1700s by the commercial steam engine and the mechanical loom. The harnessing of electricity and mass production sparked the second, around the start of the 20th century. The computer set the third in motion after World War II. It may seem too soon to proclaim that the fourth industrial revolution, spurred by interconnected digital technology, is upon us, but Mr. Henning Kagermann, Head of the German National Academy of Science and Engineering, did exactly that in 2011, when he used the term Industry 4.0 to describe a proposed government-sponsored industrial initiative. After missing the first three, Vietnam is now hoping to tap into the fourth revolution, though this requires action and not just words.
