ATP Cup: Hurkacz downs world number four Thiem

first_imgPolish youngster Hubert Hurkacz upset tennis world number four Dominic Thiem at the ATP Cup Wednesday, his third top 30 scalp at the inaugural team tournament, to remain unbeaten this year. The tall 22-year-old, who reached a new career-high ranking 10 times last year and is now 37th in the world, was unflustered in the gritty 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7⁄5) win in Sydney. Hubert Hurkacz took down the world number four at the ATP Cup The victory ended any hope that the Thomas Muster-captained Austria had of winning Group E and advancing to the quarter-finals, with Poland also out of contention after losing their opening two ties. The fate of the group will be decided later Wednesday when Croatia take on Argentina. Hurkacz came into the match on the back of beating world number 13 Diego Schwartzman and the 28th-ranked Borna Coric, and said he was playing some of his best ever tennis. “I played really well today. I mean Dominic is a great player, the way he played the first set was unbelievable. He brought out the best in me,” he said. “I tried to work really hard in the off-season with my coach and my fitness coach and I think that is paying off.” His young teammate Kacper Zuk also had a good day, becoming the lowest-ranked singles player to win a match at the ATP Cup, with the world number 448 rallying past Dennis Novak 5-7, 7-6 (7⁄3), 6-3. “It’s a good experience because I had a chance to play for our country, first of all,” said Zuk, who pushed former world number three Marin Cilic hard in his last match. “That’s my first (win) against that high-ranked an ATP player (Novak). So for me, it means a lot, and I hope I will have more chances to play against guys like that.” Promoted ContentWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?7 Reasons It’s Better To Be A Vegan5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksThe Best Cars Of All TimeGreat Entertainer Became A Milestone In The History Of Censorship7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With6 Movies Where A Car Plays A Key Role8 Shows You Didn’t Want To Watch At The EndTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them Loading… Read Also: ATP Cup: Unbeaten Serbia through to quarters The ATP Cup proved a mixed bag for Thiem, who has been tipped as one of the players capable of toppling the big three of Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer and winning a Grand Slam this year.

Boyce: Boxing Day games protected

first_img Press Association The most likely outcome of the meeting is that FIFA will announce a shortened tournament starting on Sunday November 20 and finishing four weeks later on Sunday December 18. Boyce, who steps down as FIFA vice-president in May, told Press Association Sport: “There is no way you can have a World Cup final on December 23 and then have a lot of people all trying to get home for Christmas. “December 18 has to be the absolute deadline and in Britain that would allow the club programme to resume their fixtures on Boxing Day.” The FIFA executive committee is meeting in Zurich where it is to be updated with Qatar’s plans for improving the conditions of migrant workers following revelations about appalling conditions for some in the construction industry. Boyce added: “FIFA is now monitoring this and it has to make sure that progress has been made. FIFA is concerned about this and it is something FIFA is trying to rectify.” Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore said last month he felt “let down” by UEFA’s push for a December 23 final. A UEFA source said the European governing body would accept December 18 if that was the consensus as there was still enough time to plan to accommodate the necessary changes. UEFA president Michel Platini on Wednesday responded to Scudamore’s remarks saying: “It’s not only the Premier League in the world. There are many leagues, many players, many clubs. “I always said that it would be a winter World Cup. I always said I will vote for Qatar but that I will do my best for it to be in winter and I hope it will be in the Gulf. “I’m totally coherent with what I said four years ago, totally. I work for what I am convinced is good for football.” Jim Boyce, from Northern Ireland, sits on the FIFA executive committee that will make the decision on the dates of the tournament which is being played in the winter to avoid the fierce heat of June/July, and he believes that moves to stage the 2022 final on December 23 will be defeated. UEFA has been pushing for December 23 but FIFA president Sepp Blatter said in February the final would not be staged later than December 18, which also happens to be Qatar’s national day. center_img Britain’s FIFA vice-president is confident the Boxing Day club matches will be protected when the world governing body announces the final dates for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on Friday. last_img read more

Bairstow condemns Windies to World Cup qualifiers with maiden ODI ton

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (CMC) – West Indies’ dismal One-Day International form continued with a seven-wicket defeat to England in the critical opener at Old Trafford here yesterday, a result that condemned the Caribbean side to a 10-team qualifying tournament in order to reach the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Chris Gayle launches his innings with a volley of sixes.Needing to sweep the five-match series in order to achieve direction qualification for the showpiece, West Indies put themselves under pressure when they mustered 203 for nine in the contest reduced to 42 overs per side following a two-hour delayed start due to a wet outfield.Captain Jason Holder top-scored with an unbeaten 41 off 33 deliveries, while opener Chris Gayle, in his first ODI in two years, belted a typically aggressive 37 off 27 balls.Stylish right-hander Shai Hope carved out an attractive 35 while Rovman Powell got 23, but no other Windies batsman passed 20.As expected, England made light work of the target, coasting home in the 31st over with Jonny Bairstow celebrating his promotion the top of the order with 100 not out – his maiden ODI century.Test captain Joe Root chipped in with a polished 54 while all-rounder Ben Stokes arrived at the end to help formalise the result with a cameo unbeaten 23 off 15 balls.The defeat was the 16th in the last 21 ODIs for West Indies and their 12th loss in their last 17 outings to England.West Indies, two-time former World champions, will now battle minnows Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, along with four teams from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and another two from the ICC World Cricket League Division Two, in a tournament next year in order to reach the World Cup.Opting to bat first, West Indies were given a rousing start by Gayle and Evin Lewis (11) who put on 45 off 33 deliveries.The left-handed Gayle, dropped at second slip by Root off the third ball of the innings from pacer Chris Woakes before he had scored, looked in great touch, smashing two fours and three straight sixes to dominate the stand.However, Lewis pulled a long hop from Moeen Ali to Alex Hales at square leg in the off-spinner’s first over, and Gayle followed 20 balls later with 10 runs added when he holed out to deep mid-off to a brilliant running catch by Root off Woakes.Hope stroked five boundaries as he consolidated in a 50-run, third-wicket partnership with Marlon Samuels before he too perished softly, whipping an ordinary delivery from seamer Stokes off his hip to be caught at square leg by Bairstow in the 24th over.Samuels, who consumed 46 balls in making a boundary-less 17, departed 12 balls later at 107 for four in the 26th over brushing a leg-side catch behind off Stokes.Powell and Jason Mohammed (18) then propped up the innings by adding a run-a-ball 42 for the fifth wicket but once they were separated, West Indies lost five wickets for 53 runs to decline.It was left to Holder to wag the tail, the right-hander thumping five fours to push his side beyond the 200-run mark.Stokes finished with three for 43 while leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2-31) and Woakes (2-41) were the other wicket-takers.Requiring a strong opening burst, the Windies claimed Alex Hales cheaply for 19 when Lewis held a juggling catch at point off seamer Jerome Taylor with the score on 31 in the fifth over.However, the joy was short-lived as Bairstow and Root came together in a 125-run, second-wicket stand which killed off the Windies’ hopes of a victory.All told, Bairstow faced 97 balls and counted 11 fours in a well-paced knock, reaching his landmark in the last over of the game with a punch to deep over off off-spinner Ashley Nurse for three runs.Root, meanwhile, struck four boundaries off 53 balls before chopping on to seamer Kesrick Williams (2-50) in the 24th over and captain Eoin Morgan’s lean run continued when he nicked one behind off the same bowler three overs later, to perish for 10.But Stokes provided a swift end to the encounter, lashing a four and a pair of sixes – the last of which sealed the rout for the hosts.WEST INDIES inningsC.

Under-23 Team Battles Germany for Final Ticket

first_imgThe next game against Sweden appeared easier. Having rested enough from the fatigue of three-day going back and forth at the Atlanta Airport, Mikel led his colleagues to consolidate at the top of the group on six points with the 1-0 defeat of Sweden.The last game against Colombia was not necessary so Siasia gambled, playing those who have not tested action in the first two games. The loss to Colombia had no collateral damage on the team but was suffice to let Siasia who is aiming to go past the silver he won at Beijing 2008 know the quality of his reserve bench.Of course, the quarter final clash with Denmark was never going to be a stroll in the park for Nigeria as the Danes had similarly shown flashes of quality in their group battles. Goals from captain John Mikel Obi and Aminu Umar however steered the African champion for today’s semi final battle with Germany.Will the Never-Say-Die spirit continue to steer the Nigerian dream of an encore even in the face of a great opposition like Germany?Hrubesch Horst’s side reached the semi final dispatching highly rated Portugal 4-0 in the quarter final. Unlike the Nigerian team, Germany has not lost a game in this tournament.How Siasia is going to be able to seal his leaking defence line to prevent Germany’s star player, Serge Gnabry, from causing havoc is going to determine how far the Nigerian Under-23 lads can go this evening in reaching the final.Gnabry who plays in the wing for Arsenal in the English Premier League has scored in each of the four matches played by Germany and is leading the scorers sheet on six goals.Meanwhile one of the footballers ordered home from the Rio Olympics has lamented how they were thrown out of the team’s hotel and had to spend their own money to pay for the two nights they spent in Brazil thereafter before they flew out to Nigeria.Cash-strapped Sports Ministry officials Nigeria authorities ordered two alternate players Stanley Dimgba and Yusuf Mohammed as well as several officials to head home because they could no longer pay their way.“God will fight my fight for me. It was heart-breaking when we were told to quit the team’s hotel in Sao Paulo,” said the player, who did not want to be identified.“When you returned to Sao Paulo (from Salvador)they gave rooms to only the 18 players registered for the competition and even some team officials did not get hotel rooms too.“For the two extra nights we spent in Brazil, we had to pay with our own money for our hotel and feeding.“That is life for you.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Duro Ikhazuagbe in Sao PaoloNigeria’s march to another football glory will get further boost this evening at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo, Brazil when the Under-23 Team takes on Germany for a place in the gold medal match on Saturday.Coach Samson Siasia and his wards have come against all odds to get this far in the men’s Olympic football here in Brazil. Just like the class of 1996 that won the gold for Africa for the first time, history is about to be rewritten as the John Mikel Obi led squad file out against the Germans. Yet, this was the same team that left Nigeria like orphans for a training tour of Atlanta.The story of how they were left stranded in Atlanta because money was not remitted for their flight to Brazil from Abuja is no longer news. But the Never-Say-Die Nigerian spirit has continued to be the driving motivation for the boys.They arrived Manaus, venue of their opening Group B game against Japan barely five hours to kick off yet surmounted all odds to pick maximum points.last_img read more

Seniors key Syracuse to victory over Connecticut in final game of regular season

first_imgIt was definitely senior day at J.S. Coyne Stadium on Saturday as Syracuse’s six seniors helped lead the team to its 36th straight victory at home.The senior class of Leann Stiver, Liz McInerney, Kelsey Millman, Amy Kee, Iona Holloway and Haley Bomboy was honored in a ceremony before the game on Saturday against No. 4 UConn that the Orange won 3-2.Playing in front of family and friends ignited McInerney and Millman, who scored a goal apiece. McInerney continued the show by helping out on the Orange’s second goal.The team relied on the composure of its seniors to guide it through difficult parts of the game.“It’s always like this when you play UConn; they’re a good team,” Millman said. “It’s a huge confidence boost for us going into the Big East tournament.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe team got off 14 shots in the first half, but the saves of the UConn goalkeeper Sarah Mansfield kept the score close. The SU players didn’t get rattled as they watched shots they would normally make veer to the side.Head coach Ange Bradley says the team just kept fighting and looked for different ways to get past the UConn defense.“I think we shot a lot of balls high and their goalie made a lot of really good saves in the first saves in the first half,” Bradley said. “We talked a little bit about adjusting our angles in the second half and I think that’s what broke it open.”The fight of the team and the seniors in particular is what makes Syracuse so dominant.The game was physical and tight throughout, but the senior class, with its level of experience, would not allow its team to falter.“Before the game I knew we were going to win,” Bradley said. “I didn’t know how it would go, if it would go to overtime or what, but the power of this senior class’ spirit, I just felt it would happen for us.”Bradley said the talent and poise of her seniors prevent her team from panicking in pressure situations.The crowd and atmosphere during the game was electrifying and the seniors enjoyed every minute of it.“This is why I play hockey,” McInerney said.One of the more dedicated and enthusiastic Syracuse fans is Mark Kuzio, the uncle of backup goalkeeper Jess Jecko. He was there well before the game, tailgating in the parking lot. He was also one of the last to leave.“I bleed Orange,” Kuzio said. “Division-I field hockey is a great sport and I love this team.”Kuzio is usually seen running up and down the bleachers dressed in orange and blue paraphernalia, waving his big Syracuse flag and leading the crowd in “defense” chants.He said it was special to him to be able to congratulate the team after the game and be present on the field during its celebration.“I was teared up, I was crying,” Kuzio said. “Me and my niece holding the Big East trophy, it’s big. It’s a big deal.”This senior class has learned a lot in its time with Bradley, and she feels the seniors have rubbed off on her too. Hesitant to say goodbye, but thrilled at all the seniors have accomplished, Bradley knows they have their sights set on the tournaments coming up.“I got chills thinking of them,” Bradley said. “They represent growth, maturity, forgiveness and belief.” Comments Published on October 28, 2012 at 10:13 pm Contact Jasmine: jlwatk01@syr.edu Related Stories Syracuse defeats rival Connecticut in showdown to take Big East regular-season titlecenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Concussions end Marona’s playing career at Syracuse

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 25, 2013 at 12:12 pm Contact Trevor: tbhass@syr.edu | @TrevorHass Defensive end Tyler Marona’s playing career at Syracuse is over, SU Athletics announced in a release on Friday . Marona suffered multiple concussions during his career and in Sept. 2013 team physician Dr. James Tucker disqualified him from playing football or any other contact sport for Syracuse.“Unfortunately I have a history of head injuries, and eventually they add up,” Marona said in the release. “My future is most important to me, and I need to keep myself safe to live it out. I am retiring from football due to multiple concussions.”Marona’s streak of concussions began at St. Francis High School  in Mountain View, Calif. From there, he excelled at Pasadena City (Calif.) Community College, where he recorded 25 total tackles and two sacks in 10 games.He transferred to Syracuse in August 2013, but suffered another concussion that same month, which prevented him from playing any games with the Orange.In the release, the 6-foot-4, 258-pound Marona said he plans to pursue coaching football. Although the slew of concussions brings an end to his playing career, he said he’s eager to follow his next dream of coaching. Marona will work with Syracuse as a student coach and remain heavily involved with the program.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I am impressed that he has accepted this as the ‘new normal’ and respect that he is ready and willing to help the program in another way,” Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said in the release. “We look forward to Tyler working with us as a student coach.” Commentslast_img read more

Hunt, Shafer scout vulnerable Maryland defense

first_imgTerrel Hunt loves what he’s seeing on tape.It shows West Virginia dropping 40 points and nearly 700 yards of offense on Maryland — Syracuse’s opponent at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Saturday — in a 40-37 Mountaineers’ victory.“I was really excited to see how many yards they put up,” Hunt said of West Virginia on Tuesday evening. “I was trying to find out their tendencies and really what they do in certain formations and the coverages that they play. What they do when they blitz, little things like that.“They’re going to come tough. They’re a good defense.”WVU quarterback Clint Trickett amassed 511 yards and four scores through the air and completed 37 of his 49 passing attempts. Two Mountaineer wide receivers eclipsed 130 receiving yards.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThree WVU wideouts had longs of more than 40 yards, hinting at the Terrapins’ susceptibility to big plays.“They gave up a couple plays here and there and West Virginia earned some points on them as well,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference Wednesday. “But before that, you watch Maryland — they’re a very good defensive football team.”Hunt and his offense are coming off a 40-point showing of their own, a blowout win over Central Michigan on Saturday in the quarterback’s first full game of the season after being ejected in the season opener. Having all the pieces available on offense for the entirety of the game, Hunt said, allowed the unit to get back on track.But when Hunt was asked if Syracuse can match the Mountaineers’ output against Maryland, the quarterback smiled and held off on making any bold statements.“I’m not going to say anything,” he said with a laugh. “I’m not going to say anything.” Comments Published on September 17, 2014 at 1:30 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
