Serena Williams needs 44 minutes to overpower US Open QF foe

first_imgWith her boyfriend, Gael Monfils, watching in the stands, a day before he plays his quarterfinal, Svitolina got to the semifinals at a second consecutive major tournament after never having been that far before.“Now,” Svitolina joked about Monfils, “he needs to step up his game.”No. 13 Monfils of France takes on No. 24 Matteo Berrettini of Italy, and Rafael Nadal meets No. 20 Diego Schwartzman of Argentina on Wednesday, when the women’s quarterfinals will be No. 13 Belinda Bencic of Switzerland vs. No. 23 Donna Vekic of Croatia, and No. 15 Bianca Andreescu of Canada vs. No. 25 Elise Mertens of Belgium.Tuesday night’s last match featured Roger Federer against Grigor Dimitrov, with the winner playing the man the U.S. Open crowds love to hate, Daniil Medvedev.The No. 5-seeded Medvedev thought he might need to quit early in the first set of his quarterfinal after pulling a muscle in his upper left leg. His opponent, three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, never believed Medvedev would stop. Wawrinka was right. And now Medvedev, the best player on the men’s tour on hard courts in recent weeks, is headed to his first Grand Slam semifinal.Medvedev has drawn plenty of attention at Flushing Meadows for the way he sarcastically thanked booing crowds, trolling them by suggesting their venom was reason he kept winning. Now maybe folks will pay more attention to the 23-year-old Russian’s unusual brand of shape-shifting tennis, which carried him past Wawrinka 7-6 (6), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 despite 12 double-faults and a body that’s just short of breaking down.Asked how he’d describe his relationship with the fans in New York, who jeered him when he was introduced in Arthur Ashe Stadium but offered cheers later, Medvedev replied: “I have two words. First one, for sure, ‘electric,’ because it’s electric. And second one, ‘controversy.’”“So many people like my interviews. So many people don’t like me,” he said with a smile. “I can just say: I try to be myself, guys.”Reprising his professional wrestling persona briefly, he added, “I have to say, ‘Sorry, guys.’ And, ‘Thank you,’” and then he laughed.To say Williams was the overwhelming favorite heading into this stage of the two-week tournament would be a massive understatement. Williams had rolled her ankle during her fourth-round match but never showed any signs that it was an issue.“Physically, I’m feeling great,” Williams said, “and more than anything, I’m having fun every time I come out here.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4Why shouldn’t she? When she plays like this, it’s hard to imagine anyone else ending up with the championship Saturday.Williams grabbed the first five games in about 15 minutes. Then, after dropping one game, Williams collected the next 11 points in a row and every remaining game. PH pole vaulter EJ Obiena qualifies for Tokyo Olympics View comments Her accomplishments and accolades far outweigh those of all of the other remaining players in the women’s field.Not only was Williams the only one of the eight female quarterfinalists to ever have won a Grand Slam singles title, but she also was the only who even has reached a major final before.While Williams reached her 38th career Slam semifinal by beating Wang, the other seven quarterfinalists had participated in a combined total of five major semis, going 0-5 in those matches.

(AP Photo/Seth Wenig)NEW YORK — Serena Williams was not troubled one bit by the right ankle she rolled in her previous match. Didn’t get much resistance from her opponent, either.Looking as dominant as can be, Williams moved just fine and powered her way into the U.S. Open semifinals by overwhelming 18th-seeded Wang Qiang of China 6-1, 6-0 in a mere 44 minutes Tuesday night to move closer to a 24th Grand Slam singles trophy.ADVERTISEMENT Teen dead, another hurt in vehicular collision in Santiago City Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist Phivolcs: Cloud seeding in ashfall affected areas needs study PLAY LIST 01:52Phivolcs: Cloud seeding in ashfall affected areas needs study01:04Daybreak as smoke, ash billows from Taal volcano01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash Just one indication of how lopsided this was: Williams finished with 25 winners to zero for Wang, who was playing in her first major quarterfinal.

SI SENOR – THE SPANISH O’DONNELLS ARE ON THEIR WAY!

first_imgThe O’Donnells from Spain!Say ‘Ola’ to Spain’s three most famous O’Donnell brothers.They may not look like typical Donegal men but the three siblings are traveling to Ireland to celebrate the O’Donnell Clan Gathering.The brothers – Carlos, Marqués de Altamira, Hugo, Marqués de las Salinas and Alfonso, Count de Lucena, all sons of Hugo O’Donnell the 7th Duke of Tetuan and a Grandee of Spain, will attend the event this August. Their father, the present Duke of Tetuan, attended several O’Donnell Clan Gatherings as did his father, Leopoldo the 6th Duke.The Spanish O’Donnells, and there are many of them, are descended from Joseph O’Donnell (1722 – 1787).He emigrated from Mayo to the continent, eventually arriving in Spain where he became Colonel of the Regiment of Ultonia and rose to the rank of Lieut.General.Joseph was great, grandson of Calbhach Rua who was moved from Co. Donegal to Mayo during the Cromwellian Plantation (mid 1600), Calbhach Rua was great, great grandson of Mánus (21st chieftain, died 1563) who in turn was grandson of Aodh Rua, died 1505 and is commemorated by a sculpture on the pier in Donegal Town. The O’Donnell Clan Association, as part of the Donegal Gathering, is holding yet another Clan Gathering, again based in the last stronghold of the O’Donnells – Donegal Town.The five-day event begins on the evening of the 5th of August and has much to offer to both the over-seas visitor and local alike.The calendar of events includes, visits to places associated with this illustrious clan, talks and forums, social occasions etc.One of the highlights will be an evening of Celtic Music in Donegal Castle performed by ‘Tale of the Gael’ and guests. This will be followed by a supper of smoked salmon with Guinness or wine in the Castle Bar, Donegal Town.Already, over forty people from Spain, USA, Canada, Britain and various parts of Ireland are booked. With two months to go it is expected that this number will greatly increase. One of the main aims of O’Donnell Clan Gatherings is to bring together both over-seas visitors and locals of O’Donnells and friends. Non-O’Donnells are equally welcome. It is hoped that a large number of locals will attend and make it a real ‘Gathering.’SI SENOR – THE SPANISH O’DONNELLS ARE ON THEIR WAY! was last modified: June 24th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:O’DonnellspainThe Gatheringlast_img read more

Leicester BOOST! Kasper Schmeichel could return from injury against Man City

first_img1 Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is ready to hand the struggling Foxes a major injury boost.The Denmark international has been out for over a month with a fractured hand but could make his comeback imminently.He is likely to be fit for Tuesday’s Premier League trip to Bournemouth and could even face former club Manchester City on Saturday if he convinces boss Claudio Ranieri he is fit.Ranieri said: “He is getting better and maybe he is ready for the Bournemouth match. I think Saturday may be too soon but let me speak with him tomorrow morning. For me the possibility is no but Kasper is a fighter.“He didn’t feel anything (when he first suffered the injury) and the surgeon is happy and everything is OK.”The 30-year-old suffered the injury in Leicester’s 0-0 Champions League draw in Copenhagen last month and has missed the last six games – with deputies Ron-Robert Zieler and Ben Hamer conceding 14 goals between them.Hamer shipped five as the Foxes lost 5-0 in their final Champions League Group G game in Porto on Wednesday and Leicester are just two points above the Premier League relegation zone.Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Islam Slimani and Andy King are all expected to return against Manchester City after being left at home for the loss in Portugal.Skipper Wes Morgan is likely to be the only survivor from the Estadio do Dragao while Robert Huth should start after being rested in midweek due to a minor back injury. Danny Drinkwater serves the final game of his three-match ban. Kasper Schmeichel has been out of action for over a month last_img read more

‘STOP with the underdog excuse!’ – Antonio Conte tired of Tottenham comparison

first_img1 Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte reckons it is time Tottenham shed their underdog tag and rebuked Mauricio Pochettino for appearing to prepare an excuse ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.Spurs are four points behind the Blues at the Premier League summit with six games remaining after Chelsea’s loss at Manchester United last Sunday.Pochettino on Thursday said his side were underdogs for the Wembley clash. Conte disagrees.“There is a moment you have to finish considering yourself an underdog. I think this is the right moment,” Conte said.“Tottenham now is a really great power in English football. This is the third year for them (under Pochettino) and I think it’s the right moment to finish (talking about being) considered (an) underdog and to find his excuse.”Chelsea are seeking a win over Tottenham which, as well as securing a place in the FA Cup final, would boost morale and confidence for the Premier League run-in.Conte downplayed the impact of the result on the Premier League run-in, which resumes for Chelsea against Southampton next Tuesday.“I don’t think if one team wins or loses it can affect the other competition,” he added.The Blues’ preparation has been disrupted by illness to defender Gary Cahill, who was admitted to hospital this week with gastroenteritis.The 31-year-old defender spent two days in hospital following his admission after training on Tuesday before his release on Thursday.“Our doctor preferred to bring him to the hospital and to check his condition,” Conte added.“Not a serious problem, but now Gary is getting better and is improving a lot.”Conte appears to be resigned to being without Cahill, his on-field captain for much of this season.“If you ask me for tomorrow, my answer is it is very difficult,” Conte added.Cahill has also been a key figure in Chelsea’s defence this season, playing in a three-man defensive unit with Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz.Kurt Zouma and Nathan Ake are in contention to step in, with Conte suggesting John Terry is more suited to the central position in the back three, where Luiz is first choice.Terry this week announced he will leave Chelsea at the end of this season after 22 years at Stamford Bridge.“I think the right position for John when we play with three central defenders is in the central position where David Luiz is playing,” added Conte, who again praised Terry’s influence.“If you ask me is he a serious loss for next season? Yes, I think so.“The problem is that John wants to play regularly and for this reason I think that we have to respect his decision.”Conte admitted the departures of senior, long-standing personnel, including Terry, mean Chelsea must find others to fill the leadership void. He was also referring to Branislav Ivanovic and John Obi Mikel, who both left in January.Conte added: “Now we have to find together the new players to replace these great players and to try to write again the history for the club.“For sure this task won’t be easy. And I hope that everyone understands this.”Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois missed the United clash with an ankle injury but has trained this week and is available again.Marcos Alonso, meanwhile, withdrew during the warm-up at Old Trafford due to a stomach bug, which was unrelated to Cahill’s illness.Conte is seeking a FA Cup and Premier League double in his first season, but insisted his Chelsea team are – unlike fellow Italian Carlo Ancelotti’s side in 2009/10 – not the finished product.Conte added: “If you compare my situation with Ancelotti’s situation it is totally different.“We started our work to put the foundation and to build something important. I think in the past, in that moment, that was the foundation.” Chelsea and Spurs meet in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday last_img read more

Giorgio Chiellini explains why Pep Guardiola has ruined the Italian defender

first_imgJuventus defender Giorgio Chiellini believes the desire to replicate the style of play associated with Pep Guardiola has had a detrimental effect on defenders in Italy.The centre-back, 33, explained why he feels his compatriots need to get back to basics and work on producing more great defenders for the country to be proud of.“Pep Guardiola spoiled and ruined the Italian defender,” Chiellini told the Daily Mail. “He is a fantastic coach with a fantastic mind but Italian trainers have tried to copy him without the same knowledge and then in the last 10 years, we lost our identity. “We lost our identity of [Paolo] Maldini, [Franco] Baresi, [Fabio] Cannavaro, [Alessandro] Nesta, [Giuseppe] Bergomi, [Claudio] Gentile, [Gaetano] Scirea… between 1984 and 1995, we have only [Leonardo] Bonucci.“In 10 years, we didn’t launch one good defender. I hope now we restart and relaunch Italian football. The World Cup result is the proof of our problem.”Asked if he intends to watch any of the upcoming tournament, Chiellini was understandably non-committal considering this will be the first time since 1958 a World Cup has not featured Italy.“Honestly, it will be like a dagger in my stomach. It will not be a good month. I will see bits and check the scores but I can’t imagine sitting at the TV to watch the World Cup at home,” he said.

Celtic snatch late winner and Rangers thrash Dundee in Scottish Premiership

first_imgHere is a round-up of all the action from Wednesday night’s Scottish Premiership fixtures…Kilmarnock vs Motherwell – Match AbandonedKilmarnock’s game against Motherwell was abandoned moments into the second half due to fog.After a goalless first period visibility deteriorated during the interval and referee John Beaton was left with little option but to call the contest off.Hearts 1-2 CelticOdsonne Edouard scored a stoppage-time winner as Celtic shrugged off the departure of Brendan Rodgers to beat Hearts 2-1 and retain their eight-point lead at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.Now managed by Neil Lennon on his return to the club, the visitors had struggled to assert their authority at Tynecastle despite Hearts being reduced to 10 men for the final 35 minutes.James Forrest had struck Celtic in front in the 36th minute but Oliver Bozanic equalised from the penalty spot 11 minutes into the second half after a foul by Kristoffer Ajer.Hearts had Jamie Brandon sent off in the 55th minute for violent conduct but Celtic could find no way through until Edouard dramatically touched home his 17th goal of the season in added time. 2 2 Rangers 4-0 DundeeThe news will have come as a major blow to nearest challengers Rangers, who looked set to narrow the deficit after brushing aside Dundee 4-0 at Ibrox.Glen Kamara and James Tavernier got Steven Gerrard’s side off to a stunning start with two goals in the first eight minutes then Alfredo Morelos added a third on 23 minutes.With victory already effectively sealed, the home side eased down in the second half before Jermain Defoe added some gloss to the final scoreline with his side’s fourth in the 89th minute.Aberdeen 0-2 HamiltonHamilton bounced back from Sunday’s home humiliation against Rangers and boosted their survival prospects with a 2-0 win at Aberdeen.George Oakley fired the opening goal for the visitors in the 34th minute and Mikel Miller completed a surprise win just before the hour mark. Odsonne Edouard was the hero Jermain Defoe netted for Rangers St Johnstone 1-2 HibernianMarc McNulty scored twice as 10-man Hibernian made it three Premiership wins in a row with a 2-1 win at ailing St Johnstone.The home side, who went into the game on a run of six league games without a win, must have hoped for better after Christopher Kane gave them a 15th-minute lead.McNulty levelled from the penalty spot after a foul by Liam Craig, but Hibs’ hopes were hit by the 68th-minute dismissal of Vykintas Slivka for a second bookable offence.Despite their numerical disadvantage the visitors grabbed the points in dramatic fashion six minutes from time when McNulty fired home his second from outside the box.last_img read more

Snag a FastPass timed for the end of the night if you can, as lines can get long; the attraction will remain in its normal mode during the day.Mickey’s Halloween Party continues this week, and will be happening on Tuesday and Friday.  Make sure you check out Guy’s preview for all of the details, and to learn how to get the most out of it.

As this goes to press, the level of containment is increasing and the situation is improving, at least relatively speaking.
