Baghdatis beats Gulbis in St. Petersburg

first_imgBy Andreas VouMarcos Baghdatis earned a hard-fought victory in the first round of the St. Petersburg Open in Russia on Tuesday, defeating Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis over three sets.The pair had previously met six times with the Cypriot star coming out on top on four occasions, though there was no shortage of motivation for Baghdatis as Gulbis had won the previous encounter on the grass of Halle in 2013.Baghdatis took the first set 6-4, displaying far more maturity and level-headedness than in recent matches.The 30-year-old held his own serve throughout and picked his moment to break the Latvian to sway the set in his favour.The second set was more complicated. It was Gulbis’ turn to break late on and take the match to a deciding set.However, Baghdatis did not dwell on being pegged back and started the third set by breaking his opponent’s serve. He added a further break late on to secure a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win.Baghdatis will now face either fifth seed Tommy Robredo or wildcard Mikhail Youzhny in the next round. Baghdatis is also in the St. Petersburg doubles draw alongside Greek-Australian star Thanasi Kokkinakis. The duo will start their doubles adventure against Ricardas Berankis and Teymuraz Gabashvili.last_img read more

first_imgAround 300 Para-athletes will compete at the Games, due to be held from April 4 to 15, a 45 per cent rise compared with the previous edition of the event at Glasgow 2014. Para-triathlon will make its Commonwealth Games debut on the Gold Coast.Athletics will include the T54 marathon for the first time.Swimming, lawn bowls, powerlifting, track cycling and table tennis will also be on the programme. There will be an equal number of men’s and women’s Para-sport events, according to Queensland’s Commonwealth Games Minister Stirling Hinchcliffe.The announcement coincides with Commonwealth Day, which this year has a theme of “An Inclusive Commonwealth”.A special event to mark the news is due to be held in Brisbane later today.It will be attended by Hinchcliffe along with several of Australia’s top athletes, including five-times Paralympic gold medallist Evan O’Hanlon.They will be joined by swimmer Brenden Hall, winner of two Paralympic gold medals at London 2012, 2011 World Championships F46 javelin champion Madeline Hogan, and Rowan Crothers, the S9 100 metres freestyle Commonwealth Games winner at Glasgow 2014. The decision to integrate further Para-sport events onto the programme at Gold Coast 2018 is the result of discussions between Gold Coast 2018  and the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), led by Scotland’s Louise Martin.“With the largest-ever number of Para-sport events in Commonwealth sporting history, we are thrilled that Gold Coast 2018 will deliver an ambitious and welcome growth for the inclusive and integrated Para-sport competition first presented at a Commonwealth Games in Manchester 2002,” the CGF President said.“Today’s announcement to celebrate ‘An Inclusive Commonwealth’ ensures that the next edition of the Games will enable sports fans in Australia and across the world to support a record-breaking number of Para-athletes at a Commonwealth Games.”The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) were also involved in the discussions to enhance the amount of events at Gold Coast 2018.IPC President Sir Philip Craven described the announcement as “fantastic news”.He added: “At Glasgow 2014 the Para-sport events were extremely popular and I am sure the Australian crowds will turn out in force to see some of the best athletes in the world line-up across seven sports. “It is fantastic news for all Commonwealth Para-athletes that Gold Coast 2018 will stage the biggest Para-sport programme to date at a Commonwealth Games.”Member associations will be subsidised to allow them to send large delegations of Para-sport athletes, it has also been confirmed.It is part of the Transformation 2022, the CGF’s new strategic plan.Para-events were held in athletics, swimming, powerlifting, lawn bowls and track cycling at Glasgow 2014, where a total of 22 medals were on offer.last_img read more

GECOM Chair way too advanced in age to effectively serve

first_imgDear Editor,The GECOM Chairman, Mr James Patterson initially made headlines when President Granger triggered widespread criticism by trampling standard democratic practices to appoint him to such a sensitive and demanding position.The public not only complained about the immorality surrounding such an appointment, but they also griped over the fact that Mr Patterson is way too advanced in age to effectively serve. Mr Patterson is almost 90 years old and realistically, it would be difficult for him to be up to speed to serve in such a capacity. The public has rightly viewed his appointment as a bad one with serious consequences for Guyana. But President Granger does not care a hoot. President Granger’s interest lies solely in deriving political benefits from such an unfair transaction. What else?Unsurprisingly, Mr Patterson is back again in the headlines. This time, he is stalling election preparations and creating uncertainty at GECOM because he is on a prolonged sick leave. Many even feared that Mr Patterson is faking his illness to help APNU/PNC/AFC because Government has a slim chance of winning the elections if it were to be held in two months’ time. Guyanese must remember that President Granger has tremendous influence at GECOM because he appointed Mr Patterson. GECOM can’t be independent. Amid such unreliable and frustrating circumstances, President Granger informed the nation that elections can only be held when GECOM is ready. President Granger’s position is vague and unfair, only adding uncertainty and ignoring the problems at GECOM. GECOM may never be ready because its Chairman isn’t reporting for work. A date for the elections needs to be fixed because GECOM has to accommodate elections no later than is required by the Constitution.Mr Patterson must drop his excuses and live up to his commitment to serve. And this means that at the very least, he must immediately show up for work or immediately resign. His actions are unreasonable and unfair. The clock is ticking.In sum, this narrative exposes the undemocratic and dubious operating procedures routinely used by President Granger to trample his people for political gains. Obviously, President Granger fails to connect the hefty price tag that comes with his leadership and how it effectively brought his Government down. With this situation on hand, Guyanese now have a chance to free themselves from such a leader at the polls. President Granger needs to play it fair. The world is watching. And GECOM needs to be ready in a timely manner.Sincerely,Annie Baliramlast_img read more

Hazard fires Blues top, Everton 4th

first_imgVictory moved Jose Mourinho’s side into first place above former leaders Arsenal, who visit Aston Villa on Monday, and set them up nicely for next weekend’s home game with Manchester United.Hull had beaten Fulham 6-0 in their previous home game and they had the best of the early skirmishes, with Jake Livermore testing Petr Cech from long range and Yannick Sagbo shooting wide after John Terry lost the ball.Chelsea began to assert control, however, and Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor had to produce a razor-sharp reflex save to deny Oscar before tipping a plunging David Luiz free-kick over the crossbar.McGregor had to repel another free-kick from Luiz early in the second period before Hazard made the breakthrough in the 56th minute with a characteristic individual goal.The Belgian forward collected a flick from Ashley Cole just outside the Hull area and shifted the ball away from a couple of defenders before drilling a low shot into the bottom-right corner with his right foot.Torres applied the finishing touch in the 87th minute, gathering a pass just inside the Hull half and wriggling past Alex Bruce before slamming a low shot inside the left-hand post.Chelsea manager Mourinho dismissed French media reports linking Hazard with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, saying: “The club doesn’t want to sell him. Obviously the manager has that decision. Every manager wants players like him.“Last year you saw a talented Hazard; this year he is a much more mature player. He deserves more than man of the match, probably player of the month. Not many are doing what he is doing.”Later on Saturday, Manchester United will bid to avoid slumping to a fourth consecutive defeat for the first time since 1961 when they host Swansea City, who knocked them out of the FA Cup at Old Trafford last weekend.Everton climbed back into the Champions League places with a 2-0 victory at home to Norwich City.Gareth Barry put Everton ahead in the 23rd minute with a fine 20-yard shot that fizzed into the top-right corner, with Kevin Mirallas adding a free-kick shortly before the hour.Tottenham Hotspur are a point behind Roberto Martinez’s side in fifth place after beating Crystal Palace by the same score at White Hart Lane.After Palace winger Jason Puncheon horribly miscued an early penalty, Christian Eriksen broke the deadlock in the 50th minute from Emmanuel Adebayor’s flick-on.A day after his imminent move to Toronto FC was announced, Spurs striker Jermain Defoe was granted a warm reception after coming on a second-half substitute and he claimed a well-taken goal with 18 minutes remaining.“It was a typical Jermain Defoe finish,” said Spurs manager Tim Sherwood.“He’s pounced on it and struck. I’ll be sorry to lose Jermain. Toronto are getting a fine goalscorer.”Adam Johnson scored the first hat-trick of his professional career as Sunderland won 4-1 at Fulham to climb off the foot of the table and close to within a point of safety.Johnson teed up Sunderland’s other goal, for Ki Sung-yueng, with Steve Sidwell replying for the hosts.West Ham United spoilt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first home game as Cardiff City manager as goals from Carlton Cole and Mark Noble gave Sam Allardyce’s side a 2-0 win that took them out of the bottom three at their hosts’ expense.In the day’s other game, a 66th-minute strike from captain Adam Lallana gave Southampton a 1-0 win at home to West Bromwich Albion.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, January 11- Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored two excellent goals as Chelsea won 2-0 at Hull City on Saturday to climb to the top of the Premier League table.Hazard, who turned 23 on Tuesday, broke the deadlock early in the second period at the KC Stadium before Torres marked his 200th Premier League appearance with a late goal.last_img read more

Tottenham 1-0 Southampton: Eriksen earns Pochettino victory against former club

first_img Christian Eriksen celebrates scoring the winner for Tottenham against Southampton Mauricio Pochettino came out on top in his first meeting with former club Southampton.The Tottenham manager, who quit the Saints for Spurs in the summer, saw his new side win 1-0 at White Hart Lane thanks to Christian Eriksen’s first-half strike.The Danish midfielder latched on to Nacer Chadli’s lay-off and drove a low shot past Fraser Forster five minutes before the break.Hugo Lloris denied Victor Wanyama in the second half as Southampton pushed for an equaliser and Sadio Mane missed a glorious late chance but the hosts held out to secure a first Premier League victory in five games.Despite having led Southampton to their best-ever finish in the Premier League last term, Pochettino was showered with abuse from visiting fans, upset by his defection in the summer which sparked a major exodus from St Mary’s.A difficult start to his Tottenham reign also ensured he was under pressure from his own supporters, so this win will have come as a huge relief to the Argentine ahead of the international break.Southampton had come into this clash as very much the form side, with Ronald Koeman having overseen a remarkable rebuilding job that had seen the south coast club lose just one of their opening six games.Their last defeat came in the middle of August, but Eriksen’s strike meant their excellent run was finally brought to an end.After Ryan Bertrand had cleared a Jan Vertonghen header off the line, the home side made the breakthrough in the 40th minute.It was a well-worked goal too – Emmanuel Adebayor feeding Chadli and the Belgian laying the ball off to Eriksen to lash past Forster.It could have been 2-0 soon after as Chadli raced through on goal and beat Forster but saw his left-footed strike hit the far post before being hacked clear.Spurs continued on top when the play resumed for the second half, but Southampton got stronger as the game went on and the home side had Lloris to thank for keeping them in front.A sliced clearance from Younes Kaboul fell to Wanyama whose well struck shot was brilliantly kept out by the French goalkeeper.Southampton continued to press and should have been level five minutes from time when Ryan Bertrand’s cross found its way to an unmarked Mane, who somehow failed to make the right contact with the ball from six yards and directed wide.It was a huge let-off for Tottenham, as they held out for their first three points since the end of August to move up to sixth in the table. 1last_img read more

TRAGIC DONEGAL WOMAN LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO HAVE LEGAL HIGHS BANNED IN BRITAIN

first_imgTragic Jimmy just hours before his death.A Donegal woman whose son died in England is fronting a campaign to have new legislation introduced in the British Parliament to have legal highs banned there.Jimmy Guichard from Letterkenny died last October after taking a legal high.The 20 year old GAA player had moved to England to look after his dad who is suffering from cancer. However Jimmy died after suffering a massive heart attack and brain damage from the unknown substance.Tragic Jimmy Guichard looking fit and healthy.Now his mum Karen has written to the 416 MPs in the House of Lords asking to help her introduce Jimmy’s Law in England.So far 80 of them have responded to her campaign.Karen told Donegal Daily she is delighted by the response to Jimmy’s Law which aims to introduce a total ban on all legal highs across Britain. “Considering I never wrote an email before I am delighted by the response.“I sat down and asked my daughter to set me up with an account and I emailed every one of the 416 MPs.“I have so far received 80 responses and they have promised to help. It’s a great start and I would love to see Jimmy’s Law become a real law,” she said.Karen said life without her eldest son is difficult but the campaign is keeping her busy.“If I can get Jimmy’s Law passed then he will not have died in vain. “We went through hell as a family and I would not like any other family to go through what we went through and are going through.“Nobody knows what is in these legal highs and that is the most dangerous thing,” she said.Jimmy, who was a talented hurler with St Eunans in Letterkenny, was found in his bedroom in Kent by his dad Martin.He was rushed to hospital but died the following day after his family were told there was no hope for him. His mum Karen decided to give permission to release a touching picture of Jimmy on a life-support machine.The picture was later used in an anti-drugs billboard campaign in Latvia.“I wanted people to see what damage taking these so-called legal highs can do,” she said.Karen will be travelling to England in a few weeks to speak about Jimmy’s death in schools across Britain.TRAGIC DONEGAL WOMAN LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO HAVE LEGAL HIGHS BANNED IN BRITAIN was last modified: January 18th, 2014 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:donegalJIMMY GUICHARDLEGAL HIGHSletterkennylast_img read more
