Djokovic cruises past Federer, books spot in fifth straight Grand Slam final

first_img KEYWORDS In a fourth set riven by tension, Djokovic took Federer’s serve in the eighth game, benefiting from a lucky netcord that gave him a crucial break point, and served out the match to love in 2 hours and 19 minutes.“Definitely I’ve played an unbelievable first two sets but that’s what is necessary against Roger,” Djokovic said courtside after setting up his sixth final at Melbourne Park against either Andy Murray or Milos Raonic.“I knew he was going to be aggressive and try to mix up his pace and come to the net.“I executed everything perfectly. A two-set lead is more comforting but it was a battle in the end.”Djokovic continued his Grand Slam mastery of the 34-year-old Swiss, having beaten him in six of their previous seven matches at the majors, including last year’s Wimbledon and U.S. Open finals.The head-to-head record between the pair has now also swung symbolically in Djokovic’s favor, with the Serb edging ahead 23-22 in their 45 matches.The record 15th Grand Slam encounter between the pair was billed as a blockbuster but threatened to be a one-sided rout.The 15,000 spectators barely had time to settle in their seats before Djokovic had sewn up the first set in 22 breathtaking minutes.Usually a thing of beauty, Federer’s backhand was a liability early on and he dropped serve for a second time with an unforced error after repeatedly coming off second best in the baseline rallies.Djokovic was bullet-proof and crunched a huge serve down the “T” to clinch the first set and send the 17-time Grand Slam champion back to his chair frowning.The horror show quickly resumed for the Swiss, who was broken in the third game to love and again in the fifth. The set lasted scarcely 30 minutes.As the players returned to court, the crowd clamored for a Federer comeback, and the Swiss rallied to pressure the Serb’s serve in an epic sixth game.Djokovic saved three break points but finally folded with a fourth as a net-rushing Federer forced a passing shot wide.Serving at 5-3 for the set, Federer’s wife Mirka could not watch as the Swiss battled to close it out, but Djokovic fired a forehand long on the third set point to raise thunderous cheers from the terraces.A rain-break only raised the tension as the players waited for the roof to close and then resumed to doggedly hold serve.Trailing 4-3 on serve and under pressure, Federer made a desperate rush forward and Djokovic’s shot clipped the net, the deflection causing the ball to whistle past the Swiss’s racquet.Federer threw caution to the wind by attempting a second-serve serve-and-volley but Djokovic blasted a marvelous cross-court return to capture the decisive break.Closing out the match with a string of booming serves, Djokovic was left celebrating another memorable victory as he stood one win away from a record sixth title at Melbourne Park.

The champions of drivers and teams have been determined in the…

first_imgPortugal’s Antonio Felix da Costa became the Formula E champion two stages before the end of the season, but his DS DSececah secured first place in the overall team standings. Content will continue after the ad Advertising The Formula E Championship managed to run three stages before the Covid-19 pandemic, but now six stages are taking place in Berlin, at the historic Tempelof Airport, where the organizers have taken care of three configuration tracks.At the start of the season, da Costa was the overall leader, but two consecutive victories in Berlin further strengthened his hopes for the title. He then finished fourth in the third race at Tempelof Airport, and on Sunday, the seventh race of the season, he finished second, behind teammate Jean Eric Verne.Thus, two stages before the end of the season, da Costa has 156 points, but his closest follower in Verne has 80 points. No one else can overtake the Portuguese this season.After the triumph in the overall standings, da Costa was very emotional and admitted that it was not far to give up. “I don’t have a word right now. All bad times come to mind because I was very close to giving up. Thanks to the people around me, I didn’t do it,” said the Portuguese, who thanked both his team and his teammate in Verne. In Verne, on the other hand, the second place in the overall standings awaits him, with Maimilian Günter (BMW i Andretti), Lucas di Grasi (Audi ABT) and Sebastian Buemi (Nissan e.DAMS) 69 points behind. Mitch Evans (Panasonic Jaguar) has 67 and 65 points, respectively.DS Techeetah has dominated the Formula E Championship in recent years. In the previous two seasons, Verne became the champion, but last year the team also triumphed in the team rating.DS Techeetah has scored 236 points this season, but its closest follower, Nissan e.DAMS, has reached 121 points with its drivers Oliver Rowland and Sebastian Buem.last_img read more

Blues beat 12-man Hurricanes 24-15 in Super Rugby

first_img FOLLOW US Last Updated: 7th March, 2020 16:10 IST Blues Beat 12-man Hurricanes 24-15 In Super Rugby The Auckland-based Blues beat the Wellington-based Hurricanes 24-15 Saturday in a Super Rugby match which will be remembered longer for its controversy than its quality. WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News LIVE TV Written Bycenter_img COMMENT The Auckland-based Blues beat the Wellington-based Hurricanes 24-15 Saturday in a Super Rugby match which will be remembered longer for its controversy than its quality.The Hurricanes were reduced to 12 men in the second half after after prop Tyrel Lomax was shown a red card for a shoulder charge, flanker Vaea Fifita was sin-binned for a similar offense and fullback Jordie Barrett received a yellow card for a deliberate knock on which also conceded a penalty try.In spite of all of those disadvantages, the Hurricanes managed to stay in the game and even took the lead 15-14 with a try after Lomax had left the field.The Blues managed to edge ahead with the penalty that resulted from Fifita’s yellow card, then relied on the penalty try conceded by Barrett to beat the Hurricanes for the first time in their last nine meetings.It was an indictment on the Blues that even when they held a three-man advantage, they couldn’t produce an actual scoring play. Near the end, with the Hurricanes still reduced to 12 men the Blues incredibly attempted a drop kick at goal.”We didn’t do ourselves any favors,” Hurricanes captain T.J. Perenara said. “Obviously we were down to 12 players at one stage there and you can’t win football games like that so we’ve got to right those wrongs and give ourselves a chance to win those football games.”The Hurricanes lost their temper and their discipline in the second half, feeling they had been unfairly treated.The incident that led to Lomax’s dismissal was referred to referee Mike Fraser by his TMO and Fraser rated it a red card offense because Lomax led with his shoulder, didn’t wrap his arms and made contact with the head.The Blues were awarded tries in each half which were also called into question. In the first half backrower Akira Ioane was judged to have scored on the basis of Fraser’s on-field call, though replays suggested he grounded the ball just short of the line.Winger Mark Telea scored in the left-hand corner early in the second half, Fraser again made the on-field call of try and replays showed Telea had put his hand in touch at almost the same moment he grounded the ball.The match didn’t live up the promise created when the Hurricanes scored a try through winger Ben Lam inside two minutes; a movement in which Fifita threw the final pass. It lost its structure as both teams struggled to assert themselves at set pieces or retain possession. SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 7th March, 2020 16:10 ISTlast_img read more

NFL looking for next generation of stars ages 9-12

first_img“We started looking at a lot of the videos that kids are putting online of themselves playing and we were just blown away at how amazing some of their moves were and how good they were at that age,” Ellis told The Associated Press. “I mean, some of these kids were doing these one-handed catches like Odell Beckham Jr. We were just all like clapping and yelling and celebrating like, how can these kids be this good at this age? It’s incredible.”Ellis said “the reason we wanted to get someone like Deion, who is a revered player by our generation, is that we knew he could help us get that level of awareness and get people really talking about this. And ultimately, our goal is to get this talked about on the school grounds, right? We want all the kids talking about it at school, together with their parents, among the community and really drive that level of passion and excitement to encourage kids to think about football in a different way and to actually participate.”Sanders said he’s honored to be involved in the new project that caps the league’s yearlong celebration of its centennial season.“I didn’t just become ‘Prime Time’ when I reached the NFL,” Sanders said. “It started on a youth football field in Fort Myers, Florida. That’s when I was doing the Billy ‘White Shoes’ Johnson, emulating some of the stars that were prevalent and current in the NFL. That’s where that started; I just took it to the next level, the next stage. And that’s what some of these youngsters are having an opportunity to do.”Parents and coaches, with parental permission, can submit their kids’ video showcasing their skills at tackle or flag football at PlayFootball.com/Next100.ADVERTISEMENT No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist Sanders said he was especially thrilled the league is looking for both boys and girls: “My daughter, she played for my youth football team all the way up to 12 years old and she played tackle, not just flag, and she loved every minute of it.”A Hall of Fame defensive back who also starred in Major League Baseball, Sanders said some of today’s rising NFL stars such as Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson aren’t just great football players but “bona fide athletes. They played dual sports coming up. These guys did it all. And that’s the kind of love and excitement and passion that we want” to find in this national casting call.Ellis said the NFL is expecting “tens of thousands of videos” to be submitted and the league’s teams will help narrow down the finalists.“At the end of this commercial, we will say, ‘Here’s to the next 100,’” Ellis said. “So, we thought it was appropriate for us to use this unique opportunity as a passing of the torch.” FILE – In this March 25, 2019 file photo, Tim Ellis, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for the NFL, speaks during the annual NFL football owners meetings, in Phoenix. The NFL launched a casting call Sunday, Nov. 17 asking parents and youth coaches of boys and girls ages 9-12 to submit videos of the kids’ best moves on the football field for a chance to attend Super Bowl 54 in Miami and to appear in a follow-up commercial to last year’s epic star-studded banquet spot that kicked off the league’s 100th season. “We kicked off the 100th season in a big way.
