US Open: Federer crushes Goffin to reach last eight

first_imgRelatedPosts Federer pays surprise visit to rooftop tennis girls COVID-19 spreads through Djokovic’s Adria Tour participants Federer out of tennis until 2021 Roger Federer destroyed David Goffin 6-2 6-2 6-0 on Sunday to reach the US Open quarter-finals and keep his bid for a record-extending 21st Grand Slam title alive. The Swiss third seed fired 35 winners and 10 aces to see off the outclassed Belgian in a speedy 80 minutes on a sunny day at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The 38-year-old Federer was at his best when it mattered most, converting nine of his 10 break point opportunities to set up a meeting with Grigor Dimitrov or Alex de Minaur, who were playing their round of 16 match on the Grandstand court. The only drama came early when Goffin, seeded 15th, broke Federer to take a 2-1 lead in the first set but the Swiss broke back in the next game and cruised to the finish line. “I’m very happy with the level of play and the atmosphere,” Federer said in an on-court interview.Tags: Alex de MinaurDavid CoffinGrigor DimitrovRoger Federerlast_img read more

Woods, Mickelson, Manning, Brady set for showdown

first_imgRelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians The coronavirus relief golf match featuring Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will be played on May 24 at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, WarnerMedia’s Turner Sports said on Thursday.The sanctioned PGA Tour event, which is dubbed: “The Match: Champions for Charity,” will begin at 3pm ET (1900 GMT) and the four golfers will come together to make a charitable donation of $10 million to benefit COVID-19 relief. WarnerMedia is banking on a matchup featuring two of the most famous golfers of their era alongside two of the all-time greatest NFL quarterbacks competing on the nation’s Memorial Day holiday weekend to be a welcome sight for sports-starved fans.“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unimaginable tragedy and heartbreak,” Jeff Zucker, Chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports, said in a news release.Zucker added: “We’re hopeful this event and platform will help raise meaningful funding for COVID-19 relief, while also providing a source of brief distraction and entertainment for all sports fans.”The competition, which is being held less than three weeks before the PGA Tour plans to resume its season, will feature 15 times major champion Woods and Manning up against five times major winner Mickelson and Brady in Team Match Play.The golfers will play fourballs on the front nine and a modified alternate shot format on the back nine, where each competitor tees off and then the team plays alternate shot from the selected drive. Medallist Golf Club opened in 1995 and is the home course to many PGA Tour players, including 15 times major champion Woods, who last competed in February and then withdrew from a number of tournaments with a back injury before the PGA Tour decided to cancel a slew of events because of the coronavirus.Mickelson finished third in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in early February and missed the cut in his next two starts.Brady joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March after 20 years with the New England Patriots during which he won an NFL-record six Super Bowl titles.Manning, who played for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos, retired in 2016 as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns and yards and is the only five-times winner of the league’s Most Valuable Player award.Reuters/NAN.

Reina slams Suarez ban

first_img The Uruguay international was handed the punishment on Wednesday after an independent panel decided the incident involving Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic warranted additional punishment above the statutory three-game suspension for violent conduct. “I consider myself a friend of Luis. He is being treated differently, I don’t know if it’s because he’s Uruguayan or because he’s had a previous episode like this…,” Reina told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope. “He knows full well that what he did was wrong but a 10-game ban seems to me absurd, out of proportion and unfair.” Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina has criticised Luis Suarez’s 10-match ban for biting as “absurd, out of proportion and unfair”. Liverpool are awaiting the detailed written report before deciding whether to appeal – they have until midday on Friday to do so. But fears have already been raised that Suarez, who served a seven-match ban for biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal in November 2010 immediately before his move from Ajax to Anfield, could quit England in the summer as a result of the ban. Reina added: “It seems that the people making the decisions have got it in for Luis a little bit. That’s the way I see it. “I am not justifying what he did but the punishment is very disproportionate. He knows he was in the wrong, he knows he has made a mistake but the treatment is completely out of place. “Those who know Luis know that he is the complete opposite (off the pitch), he is a magnificent person and great team-mate. But because of the way he plays, he is aggressive and very competitive, he plays like a street player and sometimes the way he is gets him into trouble.” Reina also described sections of the English media of being sensationalist and “very very very very hypocritical”. Asked if he felt there was xenophobia in England, Reina said: “There is hypocrisy, I don’t know if it’s so much xenophobia, but a different yardstick is used. Some players are treated differently to others.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Piacentini’s hot streak continues with 2 goals in win over Lindenwood

first_img Published on March 1, 2014 at 9:02 pm Contact Connor: cgrossma@syr.edu | @connorgrossman Melissa Piacentini’s torrid scoring pace continued in Syracuse’s series-clinching victory on Saturday.Piacentini netted two goals for Syracuse (20-13-3, 9-8-3 College Hockey America), which beat Lindenwood (5-26-3, 5-13-2) 6-0  to advance to the CHA Semifinals against Mercyhurst next weekend in Erie, Pa.She led Syracuse with 15 regular-season goals, and rose to the occasion in her fourth career playoff game by scoring her 16th and 17th tallies of the year.“She generates a lot of scoring opportunities,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said, “And for a smaller player she does a great job for us along the walls.”The assist on her first goal of the afternoon came on an incredible, no-look pass across the ice from senior forward Margot Scharfe that made her job rather easy.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I still don’t know how she saw me,” Piacentini said, “It was incredible. She made a beautiful pass and all I had to do was tap it in.”Flanagan dubbed Piacentini, “Ms. Consistency,” after the game when reflecting on her immense contributions to the team throughout the season and into the playoffs.With 17 goals through 36 games, Piacentini now sits second in program history for goals scored in a season. And she will have to put in three goals next weekend if she wants to unseat current record holder Isabel Menard, who netted 19 goals in 2010-2011.Piacentini stands at 5 feet, 2 inches, and Flanagan acknowledged that despite her height, she has excelled against vertically superior opponents.Even with her head coach’s praise of consistency after the contest, Piacentini’s two goals on Saturday were the first for her in six games, since Feb. 7 at Robert Morris.She admitted that her scoring drought may have crossed her mind over the last three weeks, and especially as her team moves deeper into the intense, win-or-go-home playoff format.Because after leading her team in goals during the regular season, it was hard not to put pressure on herself to succeed for her teammates in the most important games of the year.“I think I’ve put a little pressure, maybe too much, on myself,” Piacentini said. “But to get these two wins is relieving for now, but the pressure is back on next week.”If she is putting pressure on herself, it’s not evident to her teammates. Her poise and levelheaded approach to the game punctuate her style of play and rub off on the rest of the Orange.Her teammates who have seen her grow as a player from last year have had a firsthand look at her transformation into a top-flight scorer.“She’s a type of player that no (amount of) pressure phases her,” said junior forward Julie Knerr. “So it helps us to see that we could play like that and perform at the high level she’s at.”As much as she enjoys her own personal success, Piacentini will be the first to credit her line and her teammates.But without a doubt, Piacentini is enjoying her successes with her team as she tries to guide SU closer to a conference championship.“Playoffs are a whole different animal to the game,” Piacentini said, “and you just have to relish it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
