Steck once said he considered himself an outsider in the mountaineering scene because athletic achievement was more important to him than adventure. In a recent post on his website, Steck mused about the transience of success in mountaineering and the inevitable decline that comes with age. A record is broken again and again, and the world keeps on turning, he wrote. You are getting older and there comes a time when you have to adjust your projects to your age. Steck suffered a setback during his last trip to Everest, in 2013, when he became involved in a violent altercation with a group of local guides. On his return this year, he aimed to perform a quick climb of Everest and Lhotse, including an overnight stop at more than 8,000 meters, an altitude that's known as the death zone because the

In 2013 he achieved the first solo climb of the Annapurna south face in Nepal after almost losing his life in a fall there in 2007. For that he received the “Piolet d’Or” — considered the Oscar of mountaineering — the following year. In 2015, Steck decided to climb all 82 peaks in the Alps higher than 4,000 meters (13,100 feet) traveling between mountains by foot, bike and paraglider only. He completed the feat in 62 days, helping cement his reputation as the “Swiss Machine.” Steck said in an interview last month with Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger that he considers himself an outsider in the mountaineering scene because athletic achievement is more important to him than adventure. Asked about his upcoming Everest-Lhotse expedition, involving a quick climb from one peak to the other including an overnight in the “death zone,” Steck said: “When I’m on Everest I can stop at any point.

She sealed the first set when Mladenovic sent a crosscourt backhand into the net after just 38 minutes. The Russian, a three-time champion in Stuttgart, broke Mladenovic again at the start of the second set and looked to be cruising to victory as she took a 2-0 lead, attacking her opponent's second serve. But despite conceding 11 double faults, Mladenovic improved her baseline game, chasing Sharapova with powerful ground strokes across the court. She almost paid the price for her weak second serve -- a liability throughout the match -- but Mladenovic survived three break points to move into a 6-5 lead. She took the set when Sharapova sent a forehand wide on Mladenovic's first break opportunity. The pair traded blows early in the third before the Frenchwoman grabbed a break to go 4-2 up. The 23-year-old world number 18 stood her ground when she found herself 0-40 in the next game, moving to 5-2, but a disastrous service game allowed the Russian briefly to come back before Mladenovic completed a memorable win to reach her first Stuttgart final with another break.
