BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund is facing a crisis after the clubs worst start in 48 years of competing in the Bundesliga left the 2011 and 2012 champion joint-bottom on Sunday.Saturdays 2-1 defeat at great rival Bayern Munich was the clubs seventh in 10 games, its fifth in a row, heightening the sense of alarm as on-field efforts fail to yield any reward domestically.Every defeat hurts and the pain increases with the frequency with which were losing in the Bundesliga, said Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp, whose side has already lost as many league games as in the whole of last season.Its anything but good, what has happened, Klopp said. Weve a lot of construction sites and many of the defeats are self-inflicted.Two mistakes from Neven Subotic cost Klopps side dearly in Munich — a clearance went straight to former teammate Robert Lewandowski for the equalizer and the defender conceded a penalty after Franck Ribery blocked another attempted clearance — but the 2-1 scoreline arguably flattered Dortmund, which had only four efforts on target compared to Bayerns 18.Roman Weidenfeller produced an inspired performance by making 12 saves, a Bundesliga record this season and a personal league best, but they werent enough in the face of Bayerns incessant pressure.Dortmund has conceded in every league game this season, and only Werder Bremen, Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt have conceded more. Only goal difference separated Dortmund from bottom side Bremen.Klopps position is not under threat, not yet at least, due to the success he brought Dortmund since taking over in 2008. Back-to-back Bundesliga titles were complemented by the clubs first league and cup double in 2012, and the former Mainz player then led Dortmund to the Champions League final in 2013, only for Bayern to emerge victorious thanks to Arjen Robbens late winner.Robben converted the penalty on Saturday, underlining the Dutchmans stature as Dortmunds tormentor-in-chief.Klopps side hasnt been helped by injuries — Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marco Reus, Jakub Blaszczykowski, Ilkay Gundogan, Marcel Schmelzer, Nuri Sahin and Oliver Kirch have all faced long spells out — and captain Mats Hummels was ruled out for three weeks with a right foot sprain on Sunday, sustained against Bayern the night before.Goals are also proving scarce following Lewandowskis switch to Bayern.After 10 league games last season, Dortmund was second in the table with 25 goals scored, three more than leader Bayern. The side has only 11 goals at the same stage this season.Klopp has been rotating three strikers — Ciro Immobile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adrian Ramos — to try and fill the void but none are as yet proving as effective as Lewandowski.The Polish striker joined Bayern in the off-season, following Bayerns capture of Mario Goetze the year before, and Dortmund is facing the possibility of Marco Reus joining his former teammates in Munich next season.Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge angered Dortmund management by saying Reus, who has a contract to 2017, could leave for 25 million euros ($31.3 million) next summer.Well discuss it internally in peace and calm and then make a decision, Rummenigge added weeks later. The player also has to decide.Reus covered his ears after scoring against Bayern, suggesting he didnt want to hear any more media speculation on his future, but its likely to continue until he makes a statement one way or the other.Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has hit out at Rummenigge for continuing to fan the flames and said Saturday that he no longer had any working relationship with the Bayern chairman.Bayern, meanwhile, is taking pleasure from Dortmunds travails. Fans celebrated their sides deserved win by chanting Dortmund will be playing in the second division.Its a lovely feeling to beat Dortmund, even if theyre not where they should be in the table, said Thomas Mueller, whose side appears to have the Bundesliga wrapped up already after 10 games.Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer said his side wasnt to blame if the Bundesliga was becoming less interesting.Its up to the league to provide the excitement, not us, said Sammer, a former Bundesliga-winning Dortmund player and coach, who did little to quell talk of Reus joining the club. Marco Reus is a Borussia Dortmund player. We discuss what thoughts we have internally.Of more pressing importance to Dortmund now is the sides league position.Its lousy of course, Klopp said.

The second-ranked Serb has been practicing hard as he prepares for this weeks Italian Open and the French Open, which starts in two weeks. "Right now I feel much more confident at the state of my wrist and I know that Im ready much more to play a match than I was one week ago," Djokovic said Sunday after attracting thousands of spectators to a practice session with Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka on the Foro Italicos spectacular Pietrangeli court, which is lined with neo-classical statues. When Djokovic lost to Roger Federer in the Monte Carlo Masters semifinals last month, his wrist was heavily strapped and he was unable to serve or return at his usual level. "Its a wiser decision if you try to heal it 100 per cent than 50 per cent and compromise the next weeks," Djokovic said. The last thing Djokovic wanted to risk was a recurrence, citing wrist problems that have affecteed fellow players Juan Martin del Potro and Nikolay Davydenko "The second time that it comes back it becomes a chronic injury, which you definitely dont want to have," he said.dddddddddddd "From now on I wkovic opens in Rome against Czech veteran Radek Stepanek and hes hoping to have both of his head coaches in place this week -- long-time adviser Marian Vajda and six-time Grand Slam champion Boris Becker, who joined his staff in December. "Boris is here. And were trying to see if we can get Marian here, because theyre both going to be present in Paris," Djokovic said, adding that Vajda is spending more time with his family and two tennis-playing daughters lately. "(Vajda) understands and knows me really well and he can help Boris to get more efficient in that transition to co-operating well with me on the court," Djokovic said. "Thats why Im trying to get them to be together." A six-time Grand Slam winner himself, Djokovic won the Italian Open in 2008 and 2011. ' ' '
