Excited to Just Be a Fan Girl: Serena Williams to Watch Coco Gauff-Naomi Osaka US Open Clash

first_imgNew York: Serena Williams is usually playing in the matches that thrill her most, but she’s going to join a host of fans in watching Saturday’s US Open third round showdown between teen sensation Coco Gauff and top-ranked defending champion Naomi Osaka.The blockbuster night matchup at Arthur Ashe Stadium pits 15-year-old American Gauff, who made a fourth-round Wimbledon run in her Grand Slam debut, against 21-year-old Japanese star Osaka, the reigning US and Australian Open champion. “I definitely think it’s the future of women’s tennis,” Williams said. “And I’m really excited to just be a fan girl and kind of watch.”Williams, the 37-year-old American chasing a 24th Grand Slam title to match Margaret Court’s all-time record, sees them as the hottest young talents in the game.”It will be a really interesting match. I think it’s super exciting tennis,” she said. “Coco is much younger than Naomi, if you could say that, because Naomi is incredibly young.”Gauff, the youngest player in the US Open third round since Russia’s Anna Kournikova in 1996, prepared to face Osaka by joining partner Caty McNally for a first-round doubles victory Friday.Gauff joined 17-year-old compatriot McNally to beat Germany’s Julia Goerges and Czech Katerina Siniakova 7-6 (6), 6-2 and said the doubles helped prepare her for Osaka.”I think it helped me a lot to practice several serves,” she said. “You have to hit a lot of different shots in doubles. I think it will come in handy tomorrow.”Gauff and McNally won last year’s US Open junior girls doubles title and united for their first WTA doubles crown earlier this month at Washington.”I dream of winning singles and doubles Grand Slam titles,” Gauff said.She’s hoping to make a dream come true this week.”We’ve had a good chemistry since the first match,” said McNally, a second-round singles loser to Williams. “The sky is the limit for us.”Gauff says being teens helps their on-court bond.”We’re both young and still learning,” Gauff said. “We can relate to each other on and off the court and our communication is really good.”A huge crowd watched the match on an outer court, Gauff having become a fan favorite quickly.”Both of us were really feeding on the crowd,” Gauff said.Such support doesn’t surprise Williams.”She’s just incredibly talented. Anyone that’s 15 playing like that, people are going to be drawn to them,” Williams said.”I think that’s pretty awesome. I think she’s really pretty cool. I love her excitement on the court. I’m a big fan of hers.” Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

‘Suarez-esque Firmino will never be sold’

first_imgLiverpool ‘Suarez-esque Firmino will never be sold’ – Liverpool forward hailed by Carragher Chris Burton 18:49 2/8/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Roberto Firmino Liverpool Getty Images Liverpool Luis Suárez Premier League The former Reds defender believes the Brazilian epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s philosophy, with his work rate similar to that of another Anfield icon Roberto Firmino brings Luis Suarez-esque qualities to Liverpool and will never be replaced by Jurgen Klopp, says Jamie Carragher.Eyebrows were raised when the Reds invested £29 million in a forward who has never been prolific back in the summer of 2015.The Brazil international was signed by Brendan Rodgers, but has flourished under the guidance of his successor. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Firmino is considered to fit the Klopp mould perfectly, with his willingness to work hard for the good of the collective cause making him as important to Liverpool as Suarez was and the likes of Harry Kane are to Premier League rivals.Former Reds defender Carragher told Sky Sports’ MNF Extra: “Firmino has been a revelation this season.”I actually think he is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League. He has always been Liverpool’s number one striker but what he has been adding is the goals.“He can actually match up to the other strikers now goals-wise and still bring all the other stuff that he brings.”Even without the goals, I don’t think Klopp would ever look to replace Firmino.”If Harry Kane gets 40 goals and Firmino gets 20, he would still be one of – if not the first – name on the team sheet because of what he does off the ball. Klopp appreciates all of the extra things that Firmino brings to this Liverpool team that nobody else can.”There is something about South American players. They just seem to be able to keep going. Klopp said recently that Firmino has one rest day after a game and then he’s back on it in training and that’s exactly how Luis Suarez was. He never wanted a rest even in training. That is just how some people’s bodies are – they seem to be able to deal with anything.”Roberto Firmino Luis Suarez qualities Jamie CarragherFirmino has netted 19 times across all competitions this season, leaving him just three efforts short of a personal best recorded at Hoffenheim back in 2012-13.He has also recorded eight assists, and it is that combination of qualities which Carragher believes will continue to benefit the Reds – particularly those who work alongside the 26-year-old, such as Mohamed Salah.”Without a doubt, Firmino is helping Salah too,” Carragher added.“He is very clever with his passing and his movement drags people out of position as well.”He comes towards the ball and that opens up the space for Salah to make that penetrating diagonal run in behind that space between the full-back and the centre-back. It is a great combination for Liverpool.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

New ChinaCanada deals could prove beneficial for Alberta

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email New China-Canada deals could prove beneficial for Alberta by News Staff Posted Nov 8, 2014 11:21 am MDT Prime Minister Stephen Harper is in China this weekend, signing 20 new currency and energy agreements.Canada now becomes the first country in the Americas with a reciprocal currency deal, allowing direct business between the Canadian dollar and the Chinese currency and cutting out the need for the U.S. dollar.Canadian exporters had been forced to use the U.S. dollar, leading to higher currency exchange and longer waiting time to get deals done.Harper told a business luncheon it’s critical the two countries work together.“Taken together, these 20 deals signed today are valued at nearly $1.1 billion,” he said, noting one in particular that involved an Alberta-based company.“Airborne Clean Energy of Alberta and Interchina Water will partner on control systems to address air pollution, the deal is initially valued at $28 million and involved marketing Airborne’s patented air pollution control technology,” Harper said.ATB Senior Economist Todd Hirsch tells 660News the energy deal is actually more important than the currency one, since Alberta’s energy sector is so massive.“Anything we can do to be promoting and expanding that energy sector is good, but especially when we are not only talking about other countries than the United States, very important to get into that Asian basin,” adding it could lead to streamlining pipeline projects, but ironically also being greener.“The idea that it’s not just bitumen, it’s a wider array of energy products including technologies around clean energy, so I think overall that’s pretty important for Alberta,” Hirsch said.Hirsch added the elimination of the U.S. dollar is not as critical as some may think, but anything that simplify trade is a positive and it could lead to bigger developments down the road. read more

Human Rights Council president hails bodys success as duties increase resources shrink

The President stated that the work of the Geneva-based Council took place in a “difficult” international context marked by many crises and conflicts sometimes involving non-state actors.“The Council’s three regular sessions held during which more than 138 meetings were held with an average of 46 meetings per session than the conventional threshold of 32 sessions approved,” said Mr. Ella noting that more than 252 reports been examined from various points in the agenda.He said that the Council has held three special sessions in immediate response to situations of serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, including the Central African Republic.The President also noted that the Council decided to appoint a commission of inquiry to investigate allegations of serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed by all parties to the occupied Palestinian territories including East Jerusalem and Gaza.“Despite some difficulties, I was able to appoint members of the Commission of Inquiry began its preliminary investigations,” said Mr. Ella.Regarding the situation in Iraq, the President recalled that at a special meeting held September 1, 2014, it was decided to send a fact-finding mission to shed light on violations and abuses committed by the armed group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and related groups in northern Iraq.Regarding the mechanism of the Universal Periodic Review, the President stated that the Council adopted the reports of the 57 countries surveyed this year by the Working Group on the UPR. The situation of human rights in 15 African countries, 15 Asian countries, 10 Latin American countries, 5 countries of Western Europe, six countries of Eastern Europe and three Pacific countries had been reviewed.“Some 5,040 recommendations were accepted…with 3,931 simply noted. Since the beginning of the second cycle of the UPR, more than 20,000 recommendations were made with more than 16,000 accepted and less than 4,000 simply noted,” said Mr. Ella, adding that all countries examined were represented at least at the ministerial level.Among its other activities, the Council renewed and appointment of mandate-holders of special procedures. Appointment decisions have concerned several special rapporteurs, including the situation of human rights, the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, the right to freedom of expression and the right to health and the right to privacy.With regard to country situations, Dr. Ella said that the Council has closely monitored during three regular sessions, the situation of human rights in Eritrea, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Belarus, Myanmar, Iran and Syria.Echoing recent concerns voiced by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, he noted that the Organization’s human rights work is plagued by insufficient resources, as funds continued to shrink while, in contrast, the number of new mandates requested by member States for country situations, as well on thematic issues, has tripled over the past three years.“I would call the attention of the Assembly to the need to provide additional resources for the High Commissioner for Human Rights to enable the Council to fulfil its mandate effectively and to respond to situations emergencies in all regions of the world,” he said. read more

Wrestling Ohio State dominates Ohio Intercollegiate Open

Ohio State’s Micah Jordan wrestles Michael Kemerer in the dual-meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignIt was a comfortable win for the Buckeyes on Sunday, as 19 wrestlers entered and nine walked away as champions in the Ohio Intercollegiate Open.Sunday afternoon saw the Ohio State wrestling team, fresh off a dominant performance in its opener against Navy, put on another impressive display. 13 out of the 19 competitors for the Buckeyes reached the finals, and nine of those were able to end the day with gold around them. In what became an Ohio State vs. Ohio State championship bout in four out of the possible 10 weight classes, the winners of the accolades included junior Luke Pletcher (133 lbs), redshirt senior Micah Jordan (149 lbs) and redshirt junior Ke-Shawn Hayes (157 lbs). Freshman Quinn Kinner took a very cut-and-dry approach to the tournament, but was able to rattle off five straight decision victories to win him the gold in the 141-pound class. Jordan dominated his first two opponents before he was matched up against his own teammate in the finals, freshman Sammy Sasso. Jordan was challenged in this one, but ultimately ended up being too experienced for Sasso to stop, picking up the 9-7 victory.In another Ohio State title bout, Hayes took on redshirt sophomore Elijah Cleary in the 157-pound division. Hayes was able to claw away and escape with the 6-5 decision victory. In the 165-pound weight class, redshirt freshman Kaleb Romero was pitted against Ohio State redshirt sophomore Fritz Schierl, which was a back-and-forth tilt before Romero snagged the win 8-6.Gavin Hoffman became the second true freshman to seize a Gold Division Trophy, as he registered four more wins including a pin in the 184-pound class.Redshirt sophomore Kevin Snyder kicked off his day by majoring his first couple of opponents and found himself finishing his run to the title with a 16-12 decision victory in the 197-pound class.Lastly, at heavyweight, redshirt freshman Chase Singletary joined his teammate Hoffman as a two-time tournament champion, as he was able to get a takedown in a match that was otherwise a struggle, to seal the deal for the victory. Singletary is now 7-0 on the season.The Buckeyes will look to keep the momentum rolling into their next dual, when they travel to Riverside, California to take on the California Baptist Lancers on Nov. 16th. read more

Sri Lankas batsmen struggle as Windies build big lead

By the time stumps were drawn, his 64 had occupied 80 balls in an innings embellished by two sixes and six fours.He lost Chase just before the close of play, bowled by Rangana Herath. It was hardly cause for celebration, though, in a Sri Lankan camp bracing for the challenge of batting for survival at some point on the fourth day against the likes of Gabriel and Roach on a wearing pitch. read more

Bud Light Super Bowl ad will feature humanscale PacMan maze

first_imgThe 60-second spot will be the latest in Bud’s “Up for Whatever” campaign, though it’s certainly not the craziest publicity stunt they’ve put together.

This one from GASP! cobbles together things poretty nicely, from the construction crew putting the finishing touches on its assembly to the lighting of the maze at night.Yes, the pac-dots disappear when the protagonist runs over them.
