Nadal wins 200th ‘Slam’ match

first_imgPARIS (AP): Rafael Nadal set another milestone at the French Open yesterday, posting the 200th Grand Slam match win of his career. Nadal got off to a sluggish start but once he got into his swing, he was in control. The record nine-time champion at Roland Garros ended up beating Facundo Bagnis 6-3, 6-0, 6-3 to become the eighth man in history to win 200 matches at major tournaments. Novak Djokovic, who ended Nadal’s 39-match winning streak at Roland Garros last year in the quarter-finals, joined the Spaniard in the third round. The top-ranked Serb was far from his best, hitting 42 unforced errors against Belgian qualifier Steve Darcis, but his mistakes did not prevent him from advancing 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. The man with the most wins at majors is Roger Federer, who has 302 over his career but is missing from this year’s French Open because of injury. “I think this year I played better than last year,” said Nadal, who has been in fine form in the build-up to the French Open, winning titles in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. Chasing the only Grand Slam tournament missing from his trophy collection, Djokovic won his 50th match at Roland Garros by defeating Darcis. Djokovic said he struggled to cope with his opponent’s speed from the baseline. “It was difficult for me tactically to dictate points because he’s very talented,” Djokovic said. “It was difficult but I’m happy I was able to finish in three sets.” The other men with 50 victories at the French Open – Nadal, Federer, Guillermo Vilas, Ivan Lendl, Andre Agassi and Nicola Pietrangeli – all won at least one title at the clay-court tournament. Djokovic, who has lost in the final on the red clay in three of the last four years, and Nadal could meet in the semi-finals this year. After dropping his first service game, Nadal converted his two break chances and sealed the first set in 39 minutes. Nadal was warned for a time violation on his first set point, but he served out the set on his second occasion after Bagnis went long following a baseline rally. Nadal broke at the start of the second set with a cross court forehand attack, and a service winner wrapped it up 20 minutes later. The 99th-ranked Bagnis, who has never got beyond the second round at a major tournament, dropped his serve again at the start of the third set. The Argentine left-hander saved a match point in the eighth game and managed to break his rival, only to drop his next service game and the match. Also advancing were seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych, No. 13 Dominic Thiem and No. 14 Roberto Bautista Agut. No. 20 Bernard Tomic lost to 19-year-old Borna Coric 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6). Among the winners yesterday were women’s defending champion Serena Williams, who beat 81st-ranked Teliana Pereira of Brazil 6-2, 6-1, and her sister, Venus, who reached the third round of the French Open for the first time since 2010. Venus, who turns 36 next month, overpowered 20-year-old American qualifier Louisa Chirico 6-2, 6-1 in 54 minutes. Kiki Bertens extended her winning run to nine matches to reach the third round with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Camila Giorgi. Bertens, who upset Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber in the previous round, won the Nuremberg tournament last week as a qualifier. Former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic reached the third round, too, hitting 35 winners in a 7-5, 6-1 win over Kurumi Nara. Eighth-seeded Timea Bacsinszky and No. 12 Carla Suarez Navarro also advanced, while No. 28 Andrea Petkovic lost to Yulia Putintseva 6-2, 6-2. Major tournamentlast_img read more

Schafer’s severance deal agreed with JFF

first_imgGeneral secretary of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Raymond Grant confirmed to The Gleaner yesterday that an agreement has been reached with outgoing national senior team coach Winfried Schafer and his legal representatives on his severance package after he was removed from his position following a miserable World Cup-qualifying campaign. The German tactician, who is being represented by Queen’s Counsel K.D. Knight in the separation negotiations, failed in his bid to lead the Reggae Boyz to a second World Cup final following the nation’s appearance at the 1998 finals in France. The Jamaicans struggled to a last-place finish in the semi-final stage of CONCACAF qualifying with a single win, while scoring the least (two) and conceding the most (10) goals in their six games. Grant, as expected, was not able to divulge too much detail on the deal, but shared that both parties had agreed on a fee to be paid to the coach, who still had two years remaining on his contract with the JFF, while adding that this figure was yet to be paid by the JFF. “We are still discussing with a view to finalise,” said Grant. “We have not yet paid the fee. We are at a point where we understand what is to be paid. We have agreed on the amount; we have just not paid it as yet.” “I cannot say much more than that as part of the settlement agreement, there are things that we cannot disclose,” Grant added. “What I can tell you is that both parties came to an amicable solution. Mr Schafer and his legal representative, along with the JFF team, we discussed the separation agreement and it’s just for the JFF to handle the payment. I can only confirm at this time that we have not yet paid the settlement,” Grant noted. As reported earlier, Theodore Whitmore will take charge of the team for upcoming Caribbean Cup qualifiers against Suriname on October 5 and Guyana on October 11, with Jerome Waite named as his assistant. Grant confirmed the interim appointments and stated that the JFF will make a decision on a longer-term coaching solution after the Caribbean Cup qualifiers. andre.lowe@gleanerjm.com YET TO BE PAIDlast_img read more

Dowrich, Chase save Windies in warm-up draw

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC):A 49-run stand for the fifth wicket between wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich and Roston Chase averted a second-innings batting collapse for West Indies against Emirates Cricket Board Xl as their two-day warm-up match petered out into a draw yesterday.Dowrich was unbeaten on 52, while Chase scored 36 after the West Indies had stumbled to 34 for three in their second innings at ICC Academy, Dubai.Resuming from their overnight first-innings score of 56 for seven, the ECB Xl were bowled out for 117, with spinners Jomel Warrican and Devendra Bishoo taking the three remaining wickets to fall.The fact that they crossed 100 was largely to a patient lower order cameo from tailender Rohan Mustafa, who was unbeaten on 44 to top score in that innings in which six batsmen went without scoring.Jonathan Carter finished with 4-30, Miguel Cummins 3-26 and Devendra Bishoo 2-17.West Indies top scorers in the first innings, Leon Johnson and Shai Hope, were dismissed for 10 and 0 respectively in the second innings.Carter struck 29 and Jermaine Blackwood 17 but it was Chase and Dowrich, who enjoyed a workout with the bat, Chase hitting three fours and Dowrich scoring six fours and two sixes in his unbeaten knock.The Caribbean side declared their second innings at 173 for 7 to set the ECB XI a target of 306.ECB Xl were 43 for one after 14 overs when stumps were drawn.West Indies will play a three-day warm-up match against a Pakistan Cricket Board XI from October 7.The first Test against Pakistan begins on October 13.last_img read more

MoBay look to close in on RSPL leaders

first_img – 3 p.m.: Reno FC vs Jamalco FC – STETHS – 7 p.m.: Harbour View vs Montego Bay United – Harbour View Stadium – 3:30 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Maverley-Hughenden – Barbican Complex Today’s games Of the six teams in the lower half of the Red Stripe Premier League, last-placed Boys’ Town have collected the most points, seven, from their last five games and will be aiming to get another three more when the league continues with three games today and two tomorrow. Boys’ Town will ‘host’ fellow strugglers Maverley-Hughenden, a team that clawed their way out of the last two with a mid-week win over Waterhouse, in a bid to narrow the gap on the teams above them and continue their quest for survival. But while Boys’ Town’s fight for survival will generate a lot of interest, the game of the day is shaping up to be the clash between hosts Harbour View and defending champions Montego Bay United. Former champions Harbour View ended one of their worst runs with a 1-0 away victory over Waterhouse and in the process improved their standing to eighth position, but one win in the last five games is not the kind of statistics one wants to have heading to a matchup against the defending champions. To make matters worse, the defending champions have collected eight points from their last five games, including a 3-1 thumping of Tivoli Gardens. That 3-1 win, which included a double strike from Owayne Gordon, signalled a return to form for the Montego Bay United team, which recently ended a disappointing run in the Caribbean Football Union Champions League. Tomorrow’s games – 5:30 p.m.: Tivoli Gardens vs Waterhouse – National Stadium – 8 p.m.: Arnett Gardens vs UWI FC – National Stadium BIG BOOST The Stars of the East had a big boost when they managed to get four of their former players to join their fight at least to the end of the season. The four – Luton Shelton, Sean Fraser, McKaully Tulloch and Akiem Priestley have shown their value, but have not been able to feature consistently. “Their availability has been sporadic because of injury concerns. Shelton was roughed up in the game against Tivoli, Fraser sustained an injury even before he played his first game and it got worse after and Priestley developed a hamstring injury. “These injuries came about because of their fitness level due to inactivity, so we have to be cautious with them. Tulloch has been the consistent one. He has been leading the line for the last five, six games. He is determined to help the team as best as he can,” Bernard explained. For Harbour View to get the desired result, goalkeeper Christian Kluvi, Rosario Harriott, John-Ross Edwards and youngsters such as Javaine Brown will have to be at their best. “I think the desire that we started the season with was to have done better in the Champions League. What we do know is that is behind us and we are now focused on the Premier League. It is like starting over again and we are moving forward with full force to win the league,” Orville Powell, president of Montego Bay United FC, said ahead of today’s game. “Based on our vision, that (performance in the Champions League) was a big a disappointment. We wanted to play at the highest level. That is where we feel we belong, and looking back at it, we lost in terms of revenue and having our players on a big stage to showcase their ability. “We want to give ourselves another shot at it based on how we finish in the RSPL this year. We want to play in it every year,” Powell continued. Today’s game, according to Powell, is a part of that plan and his squad, he said, should have their top players available, including Dino Williams. “All our players are available. Gordon is doing well, (Donovan) Carey is playing well also. I think we have found a second gear and I feel good about the effort that they are putting in,” said Powell. Harbour View, for their part, are looking to build on the performance which gave them the win over Waterhouse last week. “We have to really find the extra resolve and commitment to put ourselves in a position to win. We have had a good week leading up to this game and we working on keeping clean sheets and collecting maximum points going forward,” Ludlow Bernard, coach of Harbour View, said.

Metta World Peace not closing door on playing in PH

We all get along, have fun, but I think in some odd way it will definitely help us.”At this point, it can’t hurt the Cavs.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next After a night of connecting in costume, the Cavs, who host Indiana on Wednesday, didn’t hide their problems during their pre-practice discussion that coach Tyronn Lue described as a “long talk.”“Off the court we’ve got great chemistry, great bond,” Lue said. “On the court we just gotta be better. Like, talking, communicating, enjoying the game together. Having fun. Right now guys are not having fun.”There isn’t much to smile about.Following losses to Orlando, Brooklyn, New Orleans and New York in the past 10 days, the Cavs are ranked near the bottom of the NBA in defense and are giving up nearly 14 3-pointers per game. They’re coming off losses by a combined 41 points in their past two games, prompting Lue to say that James, who missed much of the preseason with an ankle injury, and others need to get in better shape.READ: Pelicans too much for LeBron’s Cavaliers ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I’m screaming play with pace, and move the ball, move bodies, we got to get in better shape to do that.”James sprained his left ankle during Cleveland’s second practice in training camp and only played in one exhibition. Although he hasn’t shown any major decline in his game, the 32-year-old is not having the impact Lue needs James to have on the defensive end.It’s hard to ask him for more, but Lue has no choice.“Missing the whole training camp and getting hurt the second day of practice really set him back as far as being able to fly around and push the pace offensively and defensively fly around,” Lue said. “He’s trying to work himself back in shape, but the games are coming so fast and it’s hard to really do that. The best way to do that is by him playing more minutes and getting in game shape and we just got to go from there.”Lue knew this would take time. With Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Jeff Green and Jae Crowder among the new players on Cleveland’s roster this season, there were bound to be growing pains. Lue just didn’t expect them to hurt this much.However, Lue has confidence the group is beginning to gel.“They’ve been in winning situations,” he said. “We’re just trying to figure it out. Today’s start of film and practice, I think guys are getting a clear understanding of what they need to do.”As the Cavs work out the kinks, they were able to relax at James’ party, which has become a social media must-see-event.Love shaved off his beard and endured a long makeup session to dress up as WWE wrestler Sting.
