Pam Tips Serena to Excel at US Open Without Fans

first_imgSerena Williams Serena Williams’ bid to finally land a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title may be boosted by the lack of fans at the US Open, says former world number three Pam Shriver.Williams, 38, has lost her past four major finals when aiming to tie the record set by Margaret Court in 1973.She lost the past two US Open finals to Naomi Osaka and Bianca Andreescu. “Without the crowds there, I wouldn’t be surprised if she actually feels a little less pressure,” said Shriver.Williams, ranked ninth in the world, will be among the favourites to win in New York when the first Grand Slam since the start of the coronavirus pandemic takes place from 31 August.Six of the women’s top 10 players, including world number one Ashleigh Barty and reigning champion Andreescu, will not play because of safety and travel concerns.“I don’t think it devalues the tournament,” said Shriver, who reached the US Open singles final in 1978 and won five doubles titles at Flushing Meadows.“Anybody that comes through and wins seven rounds, under the circumstances of living in a quarantine bubble, unable to do your normal thing you usually do at a major, it is going to be an incredible performance.”American great Williams is looking for her first major title since the birth of her daughter, Olympia, in 2017, when she said she nearly died because of a series of complications.No player has won more than her six US Open titles in the modern era, although edgy performances in the 2018 and 2019 finals have stopped her moving clear of Chris Evert at Flushing Meadows and levelling Australian Court’s all-time tally.Williams called umpire Carlos Ramos a “liar” and a “thief” in an angry outburst during the final against Osaka of Japan two years ago.Last year, Williams labelled her performance against Canadian teenager Andreescu “inexcusable” as she looked a shadow of the player who had breezed through the previous rounds.“Serena has felt a lot of emotions at the US Open through the years, hence many a meltdown,” said American Shriver, now a television analyst.“This pandemic has really put a toll on a lot of people and a lot of people in your family, as far as how they’re feeling a lot more anxious.“If you’ve been through a lot, as Serena has, she might actually feel more comfortable playing under these circumstances than other athletes.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Home state IMCA Modified hero Wolla prevails in Dakota Classic Tour at Southwest Speedway

first_imgDICKINSON, N.D. (July 8) – The best of the best Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified drivers converged at Southwest Speedway Wednesday night and this time a home state driver prevailed.Jason Wolla ran second for most of the 30-lap Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Modified Tour main event. He passed Spencer Wilson with seven circuits to go and held point leader Ricky Thornton Jr. and defending series champion Jeff Taylor at bay in a furious fight to the finish.“This has to be my biggest win ever. The talent in this series is just so good.” Wolla said following the relatively close-to-home $2,100 checkers, his tour career first. “This is kind of a home track. All the fans packing the stands made it special for us.”“It takes a good car, a good setup, everything down to the right draw,” he added. “All the things we needed to have happen fell into place.”Rounding out the top five were Strand, despite engine issues, and Aaron Turnbull, the 2013 tour champ. The first four tour events have produced different winners from as many states.Wolla took the initial green from outside row two; Thornton started seventh, Taylor ninth. Wolla’s lengthy pursuit of Strand was rewarded after the leader went to a higher line to get around a lapped car. Wolla ducked inside to pass both, then guarded the line against Thornton and Taylor.“Ricky and Jeff were right there,” said Wolla, who had ventured to Iowa to win Frostbuster and Hawkeye Dirt Tour events and was already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. “Thank­fully I’d drawn ahead of them both.”Defending champion and 10th starting Dalton Flory topped the $800 to win IMCA Sunoco Stock Car series event, ahead of his father Joe and point leader Elijah Zevenbergen.Different drivers have also won each of the four Stock Car features.New tour track records were set at Dickinson with 89 Modified and 37 Stock Cars. One hundred and thirteen different Modified drivers and an all-time best 61 different Stock Car drivers have com­peted through the first four series events this season.Round five for both divisions is Thursday at Dacotah Speedway.

Big Data measuring dollar value of college degrees

first_imgRALEIGH, N.C. | To make the most money coming out of a North Carolina university, study nuclear engineering and you’ll earn almost $90,000 a year. To make the least, study dramatic theater and earn $10,400.Amid the sluggish economic recovery, many families are wondering how best to make their increasingly expensive investment in college pay off. North Carolina’s public universities and community colleges have tried to provide an answer, by releasing the average salaries earned by students according to their major and campus.A handful of other states, including Texas and Florida, have released similar data and two-thirds of the states have received federal funding to track the progress of individual students from kindergarten to the workplace.The figures may help sway students who don’t have a firm career plan, said Kelly Cravener, a 21-year-old marketing major at North Carolina State University. Her NCSU marketing peers who graduated in 2012 were earning almost $27,000 on average.“I think a lot of people come in and they just don’t know what they want to do and they switch majors three or four times,” Cravener said as she scanned the web site outside the campus bookstore.North Carolina’s website links student college records with salary information collected by the state’s unemployment agency. It shows what someone with say an anthropology degree is making after graduation and up to 10 years later. Students also can see a breakdown of the different salaries earned by anthropology graduates depending on which of the state’s 16 public universities they attended.Federal funds linking data on individual children starting as early as pre-kindergarten to later earnings started during the Bush Administration and expanded with the 2009 stimulus package. The Obama Administration and legislators, including Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, and Marco Rubio, R-Florida, have pushed for more information about the benefit of particular degrees.Despite rising costs, education beyond high school is one of the main differences between poverty and a middle-class lifestyle. North Carolina officials said they hope their data will help students match up with fields where pent-up demand will promise them high wages.“Of course, there are many paths to success. So this is not a recommendation, it’s just a way to arm students and families with good, useful information,” said Peter Hans, who pushed for the project when he was chairman of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors.Anthony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, said North Carolina’s program, inaugurated last week, is one of the best at showing the value of a degree. He expects college instructors to hate it.“They don’t get up every day and think about getting somebody a job. They’re teaching history or something, so this is news to them,” Carnevale said.Gabriel Lugo, a mathematics professor at UNC-Wilmington and president of the school’s faculty, said he discussed the website with four department chairs in both the liberal arts and the sciences at his university. They shared concerns about how the data will be used by policy-makers allocating state resources, he said.“It makes me very nervous,” Lugo said. “It makes the implicit assumption that the contribution of your education is the main or the only factor affecting your earning potential. We all know that it’s not the case.”The degrees-to-dollars comparisons also don’t take job satisfaction into account, Lugo said.The architects of the North Carolina program acknowledged a degree has value beyond income. And the data doesn’t track graduates who found work out of state, those who start their own businesses or those who enter graduate school. And past results are not a guarantee of future earnings.Timothy Reid said his parents have always emphasized that he pursue what he loved and the money would sort itself out. The NCSU senior who is majoring in psychology (a degree that translated into $15,443 a year for 2012 grads) said that parental commitment was tested when his older brother decided to become a music major.“But they stayed with it — if you love it, do it. He ended up being an accountant,” Reid said. “That’s how I was raised. I guess if I was differently — that it’s all about the money — I’d be a business major.”Then, he’d stand to earn about $27,000.Emery Dalesio can be reached at https://twitter.com/emerydalesiolast_img read more

Relaxation of FFP will see PSG turn their attention to Pogba, De Bruyne and Di Maria

first_img Upd. at 19:11 Due to FFP, L’Equipe suggest PSG had to turn their attention away from the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, instead signing players like Yohan Cabaye, David Luiz and Serge Aurier.   PSG are currently limited in how much they spend because of the current FFP rule, even though they do have money avaialble. If, as expected, UEFA modify those rules, the spending can begin.  CEST Nasser al-Khelaifi recognised in April that the squad needs “regenerating”.  EFE With UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules set to be tinkered with, Paris Saint-Germain are lining up moves for Paul Pogba (Juventus), Angel Di Maria (Manchester United) and Kevin De Bruyne (Wolfsburg).  Now they want to up the quality of their signings again, with Pogba, Di Maria and De Bruyne on their radar. 19/05/2015 They are the star names that the French press are reporting the club want to sign as Michel Platini prepares to reduce the rules on spending at the end of June.  The French champions are looking for a star signing who can reduce the pressure on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is now 34-years-old.last_img read more

Víctor Valdes explains why he was sent off against Girona

first_img 16/09/2019 Valdes, looking at his team’s efforts on the pitch, added: “We have worked on various aspects that we have to improve. We go into the Dortmund game confidence on the back of a draw and an important win. Against Girona, we had to compete until the end, thanks to a good tactical change their coach made. The team has shown it can adapt well to the way of playing, to the variety of positions depending on the game, and the important thing is to never lose that idea of position, possession, getting forward and creating chances.”  Upd. on 17/09/2019 at 11:04 CEST @albert_roge IN SPORT.ES For good or for bad, Victor Valdes has always been news. First as a goalkeeper in his playing days and now as a coach. He was sent off during the U19s win over Girona at the weekend and explained why ahead of Tuesday’s UEFA Youth League opener against Borussia Dortmund. center_img “The referee put it in his report (“vete a la mierda” “fuck off”),” Valdes said. “The assistant heard a phrase from me, I was going back to the bench, he didn’t understand it that way and they sent me off. I don’t have anything else to say. The referees make their decisions and we have to respect them.”  Albert Rogé Víctor Valdés explica su expulsión ante el Girona The coach also spoke about systems: “The setup doesn’t change. We try to establish the same ideas as always. Against Girona, we started with 4-2-3-1, but with one movement it changed to 4-3-3. There’s an obsession with systems. The important thing is to have the ball, to keep possession and to look to move it from one side to the other, to move the opposition around, to find space and, above all, to defend well.”last_img read more

Unstoppable Djokovic downs Murray in Beijing

first_imgWorld number one Novak Djokovic continued his love affair with the China Open on Saturday, dumping Andy Murray 6-3 6-4 to storm into his fifth final in Beijing where he has been simply unstoppable.The 27-year-old Serb took an hour and 37 minutes to down Murray for an impressive 23-0 record in Beijing and meets Czech Tomas Berdych in Sunday’s final.In the women’s section, French Open champion Maria Sharapova outplayed former number one Ana Ivanovic 6-0 6-4 to set up a final clash with third seed Petra Kvitova, who overcame Sam Stosur 6-3 5-7 6-2.Looking to add to his four Beijing titles, Djokovic completely outplayed Murray as he looks to finish the year as the number one.“I’m glad that I’m back in the form that I would like to be in, especially in these courts where I still haven’t lost ever since I played this tournament,” the top seed said.“Hopefully, I can finish the year in style, similar as I finished last year.”Murray, fresh from his first victory in more than a year at last week’s Shenzhen Open, put up more resistance in the second set but could not crack Djokovic’s solid defence and smashed his racket in frustration after being broken in the ninth game.“It was a two-set victory today, but still it felt like I had to work hard to win the points,” said Djokovic, chasing his fifth title of the season.“There was a lot of rally exchanges. He had a lot of chances to come back. He was 4-3 up. Just in important moments I managed to play the better tennis.“The comfortable hold at 4-3 probably allowed me to have that relief, because obviously I didn’t want him to break me and get into a third set where it can go either way.”Djokovic restricted the Scot to only seven winners and denied him four of his five break point chances.With his semi-final appearance, Murray has moved up to ninth place in the race to season-ending ATP Finals in London, which will feature the top eight.Berdych ended Martin Klizan’s golden run, beating him 6-4 6-1 a day after the Slovak had stunned world number two Rafa Nadal.In the women section, Kvitova survived some tense moments before taming Stosur to get within a win of being the world number two.Stosur dropped just four points in six service games to claim the second set and force a decider but Kvitova reeled off five games in a row to close out the match in two hours and 21 minutes.In contrast, Sharapova needed 89 minutes to overcome Ivanovic who had beaten her in their last two meetings.After the Russian ran away with the fist seven games, Ivanovic broke back and was level 4-4 in the second set before Sharapova broke her again and closed it out after a 10-minute final game.last_img read more

KC receives nutritional boost

first_img Grateful Marguerita Douglas-Hall, vice-principal, of KC, said that the institution is very grateful for the sponsorship. “This is quite important because for them to train on a regular basis and for long hours, they have to be well-balanced in their diet, and Intrust has provided something that really helps the diet of these youngsters,” said Douglas-Hall. “I think with all the budget cuts that we have been having , it will very well be worth us having this programme because it will save us (money) for sure,” Douglas-Hall said. Meanwhile, Ludlow Bernard, coach of KC, who won the Super Cup title last year and was a semi-finalist in the Manning Cup, said the products would go a far way in assisting the team with preparations for the new season. “It is indeed a real honour to be provided with these products that are ever so essential for the nutritional needs for our players,” said Bernard. “It is greatly appreciated, and we are hoping that it will go a far way in our feeding programme.” robert.bailey@gleanerjm.com Kingston College’s (KC) Manning Cup team received a major boost ahead of next month’s start of the schoolboy football season, as nutrition company Qualcare presented the school with their newest shake drink, Intrust. Daniel Wright, dietitian for Qualcare and brand ambassador for Intrust, handed over her company’s products to the school during a press briefing at the school’s North Street campus yesterday. Wright said that the sponsorship is only for this summer, but there are plans afoot to sponsors the school’s sport programmes on a long term basis. “Qualcare is very big on physical activities and dieting, overall, and we chose to sponsor KC because they are a very noble institution and the players are outstanding, and they do very well,” said Wright. “This is only for the preseason, but we are looking further for more business with Kingston College and some other institutions,” she said.last_img read more
