Roger Federer unsure if Paris is next stop on ‘incredible journey’

first_imgLava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee ‘People evacuated on their own’ On Sunday, Federer cut an emotional figure as he was presented with the trophy at the Basel tournament where he once worked as a ball boy.In the crowd of 9,000 were his wife and four children.“It might be remembering back at all that went into this week, the family of maybe the (coaching) team aspect,” said Federer when asked to explain his emotions.“People think I just go out there and do it at will — but it’s not that way at all.“Sometimes I stand there and look back at what I’ve gone through. The ballkids running onto court (for the trophy ceremony) — that can get me going. Also thanking the fans at the end.”ADVERTISEMENT Federer said his success at Basel, where he is on a 24-win streak and has won 75 matches against just nine losses, had been “an incredible journey”.“It leaves a mark for me,” he added after making an appearance at his annual pizza party with all tournament ball boys and girls immediately after the trophy ceremony.“To be able to play in a stadium with people celebrating your tennis it’s a wonderful feeling. I’ve had an incredible journey, it’s hit me hard winning in Basel. This is not something that I take as normal.“(Winning a title) is something unique and special, even if I’ve done it a lot.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist ‘Gago’ 400 evacuees from Taal eruption take refuge in Mt.

NY Golden Jubilee Unity questioned

first_imgDear Editor,I write in response to D Singh’s “Unity has vanished” (Guyana Times April 4) signing as a Richmond Hill resident. There was no unity. So nothing vanished. Singh does not understand the concept of ethnic unity – shared leadership and relatively equal representation to reflect on the composition of the population.I live in greater Richmond Hill, have been an activist and advocate for “Richmond Hill”, and a community news reporter for close to 40 years. I attended and or have been immersed in almost every major community activity; I also helped to organise several events. I can affirm without any fear of contradiction that there was hardly any “unity” in last year’s golden jubilee celebrations in New York. It was not the kind of celebration we should encourage. It disrespected the Indian community.We should strive for ethnic unity. But to say there was unity between Indian and African Guyanese is a misnomer. We must not fool ourselves into thinking that a handful of individuals from one group joining hundreds of others from another group represent “unity”. Let us stop that charade and call out things what they really are. Indians, as indeed other ethnic groups, were marginalised at last year’s golden jubilee celebration in NYC. And several pieces of evidence as revealed to me by others confirm this fact.The large organising committee comprised of only 12 per cent Indians in a greater NY Guyanese population of about 400,000 comprising of about 60 per cent Indians. Can anyone explain how 12 per cent Indians (to represent 60 per cent of the population) in a committee gives it “unity”?There was hardly any unity at the several functions. At the various events, the attendance and or participation were between three and 10 per cent Indians. The parade had one “Indian” float – that of Lisa (Latchmee) Singh promoting her TV show. Does one out of more than a dozen floats bring “unity”? All the floats were ethnic in nature with hardly any multiethnic representation.The Indian attendance at the parade was estimated at three per cent Queens virtually blanked the parade – no unity there.At the York College seminar, there was one Indian presenter. Expenses for over a dozen presenters were paid for by the Government of Guyana, but only one Indian (eight per cent) was among them – The attendance in the audience comprised of a handful – not even five per cent. The banquet in Manhattan was about 10 per cent Indians with an Indian co-emcee.The cultural show in Queens had several Indian participants but the audience was estimated at 10 per cent.It is noted that only three Indians were honoured out of dozens. Some 50 citations were given with only five Indians (10 per cent) who all happened to endorse the celebration. Only two of these honourees had standing in the community with two others being seen as “maha” opportunists and one an unknown. Those critical of the planned programme and under representation of Indians were not honoured. Worse, they were attacked for exposing the charade.Singh believes that his and Attorney Rhonda Binda participation in the committee brings unity. There can be no unity without the recognised leadership of both communities being part of the celebration.What occurred last year was not unity. In sociology, it is known as ethnic marginalisation. Singh and a few others contributed to and excused that marginalisation and how about the underrepresentation and or a lack of presence of Amerindians, Chinese and Whites (Portuguese) in the planning, presentation, and attendance? Does that make for unity? Even the Alliance For Change representatives criticised the celebration as being “unrepresentative” of Guyana’s diversity.Unity is when you have a fair representation of all the ethnic groups in the planning and participating in the varied activities and programmes.Also, those who attempt to speak for the community must have standing in the community as an advocate and champion of their causes. Ms Rhonda Binda is not known in the community and is not an advocate or champion of the community. Since the celebration, Ms Binda has not been seen. Thus, the description of “darling of the Indian community” would not fit.Clearly, contrary to what Singh penned, the 50th Anniversary Committee NY is not a model for national unity. Its composition leaves much to be desired. Doesn’t Singh feel 50 per cent Indians (as opposed to 12 per cent) in the committee with co-leadership would be a better symbol of unity? An effort must be made to bring all major black and Indian leaders together under joint leadership in order to attempt to bring unity which is highly desired.Yours truly,Vishnu Bisramlast_img read more

 

Ireland stun Wallabies

first_img0Shares0000AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Saturday 17 – Ireland won the high-stakes battle with Australia to go top of Pool C and close in on a World Cup quarter-final berth with a tenacious 15-6 upset at Eden Park on Saturday.The fighting Irish won the tactical battle and hustled the world number two Wallabies out of their rhythm with determined defence and judicious kicking in conducive wet conditions. It was Ireland’s first win over the Wallabies in five World Cup encounters and comes after they were twice beaten at the World Cup by a point in 1991 and 2003. Once again they rose to the occasion of the underdog against Australia.The win takes Ireland to eight points in their pool, three ahead of the Wallabies with two matches to play, but it was a huge psychological blow for one of the fancied tournament teams.It was a triumph for Brian O’Driscoll’s Irish team, who went into the match in indifferent form and with questions about whether they could stay with the Wallabies over the 80 minutes.But the Wallabies in the end had no answer to the relentless pressure the Irish exerted on them and playmakers Quade Cooper and Will Genia were subdued by swarming defenders.“We had to go to the well today. We had to dig deeper that we had done in these last five games. But it’s only half the job done with just two games and there are two more games to come,” said O’Driscoll.His Australian counterpart Brian Horwill said: “The Irish did very well and we played some dumb football. We were not good enough. We didn’t deal with it well enough.“Ireland did very well to spoil our game. They deserved to win. We needed to play a bit smarter and didn’t hold onto the ball enough.”The pre-match withdrawals of hooker Stephen Moore and openside flanker David Pocock were also keenly felt, with their replacements Tatafu Polota-Nau and Ben McCalman not measuring up on the occasion.Ronan O’Gara came off the reserves bench to kick two crucial penalties and further increase his Irish record to 1,039 points.A near capacity 58,678 crowd generated a crackling atmosphere as both teams ripped into each other in the opening stages.Fullback Kurtley Beale was prominent, spectacularly regathering his own high kick to put the Wallabies on the front foot before James O’Connor landed an 11th minute penalty.The Irish equalised through fly-half Jonathan Sexton’s penalty after Rocky Elsom had been penalised and hit the front minutes later through a Sexton drop goal.The Irish forwards forced three turnovers, particularly on centre Pat McCabe carrying the ball too high into contact as the Wallaby scrum came under pressure.Ireland enjoyed more territory and had Wallaby scrum-half Genia under constant pressure upsseting Australia’s rhythm and ball flow to the backline.O’Connor levelled with his second penalty, but the Irish finished the half the better with blindside flanker Stephen Ferris picking up Genia and driving him backwards 15m after an untidy Wallaby scrum win.Sexton kicked Ireland to the front 9-6 after James Horwill was offside in a ruck eight minutes after the interval.O’Gara came on and kicked a crucial penalty to put the Irish six points ahead with 18 minutes left.The Australians had to defend for their lives after a high kick put the Wallabies under pressure on their own try-line but they held firm.The Irish kept cranking up the pressure in the rain and prop Cian Healy forced the Australian front row to go down and get a crucial penalty.O’Gara slotted it over to give the Irish a nine-point lead with the Australians losing all the key plays.The Wallabies’ big chance came seven minutes in a rare attacking raid but centre Anthony Fainga’a pass to winger Adam Ashley-Cooper went sailing into touch and the chance was gone.Irish winger Tommy Bowe almost scored the only try of the match with an 80m intercept two minutes from time but was chased down by O’Connor five metres from the try-line.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

 

Exclusive – A disgrace! Liverpool legend claims Balotelli is damaging club

first_imgMario Balotelli deserves all the criticism that has come his way for his shirt-swapping antics against Real Madrid.That is the view of Liverpool legend Steve Nicol, who claims he would have been slapped down by his teammates at Anfield if he had done a similar thing in his playing days.Balotelli has been under-fire from all quarters after exchanging his jersey with Pepe at half-time of Wednesday’s Champions League clash, as his side trailed 3-0, but Nicol feels no sympathy for the 24-year-old Italian.“From a professional point of view, it is a disgrace,” said the Scot, speaking on Extra Time.“If you are 3-0 down, whether it is at home, away, whatever, it is a competitive game and you should be thinking how you are going to put this right, what went wrong, not, ‘I’d better swap my shirt quickly with Pepe, that’s a great souvenir’. What a load of nonsense.“If Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Moran would have seen me doing that, or anyone else in our team, it would have been a fight between the two of them to figure out which one would rip your head off first. It is a complete and utter no-no, especially at Liverpool.”Balotelli has also faced criticism over his performances since his £16million move from AC Milan.He is yet to open his account for the Reds in the Premier League, and there are whispers he could be offloaded by Brendan Rodgers as soon as January.For Nicol, his struggle to make an impact at Anfield is no surprise, given he had advised Rodgers against making a move for the former Manchester City striker in the summer.“He had the wrong attitude at Inter Milan, Man City, AC Milan and now Liverpool. It is the way the guy is. That is the reason I was hesitant about Brendan signing this guy,” he said.“This guy brings the wrong type of exposure, whether it is taking your shirt off, where it is playing badly, and this is what we are seeing now.“No one is talking about the deficiencies of Liverpool, they are talking about Balotelli, and that is why I didn’t want him at Liverpool. He takes it away from the football field.”last_img read more

 

So far, hype appears to be unjustified

first_imgIt would be a blowout of Georgia Tech-versus-Cumberland proportions. (That one ended 222-0, in 1916.) Monumental, that is. The only way you can approach a game like that is with tongue in cheek. The Trojans were favored by 45. And that was just in the first quarter, right? USC is the team ranked No. 1 in the nation. With 50 returning starters. And more stars than the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Or so we hear. It’s the program with fans who already are booking reservations in New Orleans for the Jan. 7 BCS title game at the Louisiana Superdome. And Idaho? Until a few weeks ago we didn’t know they played football. We thought the school existed only to study and consume potatoes. Then we found out the Vandals (that’s Idaho; the Vandals) were 4-8 last year, rated the 113th-best Division I team in the nation (out of 119) and picked to finish last in the Western Athletic Conference. The WAC will never be confused with the Southeastern Conference. Or Conference USA, for that matter. So we would poke fun at USC for scheduling the Vandals and turning the Coliseum into a pigskin abatoir. “What, L.A. City College wasn’t available?” We would point out how they had opened four of the last five seasons with a serious opponent – Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Auburn twice. And wonder why they couldn’t have found a real opponent for Game 1 this time around. And then a funny thing happened to the expected mockery of a sham of a game. USC stunk up the joint for a big chunk of the first half. Idaho outplayed the Trojans for almost the entire second quarter. Idaho didn’t just play with the Trojans. Idaho OUTplayed them. USC went up, 21-0, with 12:24 left in the second quarter, completing the third of three fairly laborious drives. And from that point until intermission, Idaho was the better team. To the tune of 104 yards and six first downs to USC’s 33 and one. With USC punting twice and John David Booty throwing a horrendous interception. As Idaho put together drives of 48 and 51 yards that might have yielded touchdowns but instead generated two field-goal attempts, one of which was blocked. It was a shocking half-hour or so. An Idaho team that probably will have its head handed to it by San Jose State was outplaying The Greatest College Team on Earth. Booty couldn’t pass deep, the Trojans couldn’t run consistently. USC couldn’t stop the short-passing game of a redshirt freshman quarterback whose last start was for North Platte (Neb.) High School. The Trojans couldn’t pressure the kid, and they couldn’t cover a 5-foot-10 receiver named Max Komar, who had four catches. It took a while for all of it to sink in. That USC could be so inept against such an overmatched opponent. Fans had trouble with the concept, too. Then they got annoyed. A smattering of boos could be heard among the sellout crowd when USC lined up for its second punt of the quarter, another three-and-out “drive” against the Mighty Spudmen. And the sullen silence inside the Coliseum was deafening as the Trojans jogged off the field at halftime and 90,917 fans sat on their hands. For good reason. Idaho had more passing yards (148-109) for the half and almost as many first downs (12-10). The Vandals were smaller and slower. They had no pedigrees, no serious prep honors and, we heard, no chance to win. USC actually was lucky it wasn’t playing a truly serious football team Saturday. Somebody like, oh, Appalachian State. It might have been USC trying to explain a loss for the ages, instead of Michigan. paul.oberjuerge@sbsun.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mangini to take over on Jets sideline

League admits snafu Upon further review, the NFL acknowledged that Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s interception during the frantic fourth quarter in Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff should not have been overturned after an instant replay review. Mike Pereira, the NFL’s director of officiating, concluded Morelli didn’t follow the rule determining a catch or interception to the letter. “The replay showed that Polamalu had rolled over and was rising to his feet when the ball came loose,” Pereira said in a statement. “He maintained possession long enough to establish a catch. Therefore, the replay review should have upheld the call on the field.” The Jets moved quickly to hire Mangini after interviewing former Vikings coach Mike Tice earlier in the day. A Jets spokesman said the club had no announcements to make and declined further comment. After retaining possession, the Colts scored a touchdown and two-point conversion to cut the Steelers’ lead to three points with 4:29 remaining. Alexander ready? Shaun Alexander expects to be more than a cheerleader in the NFC championship game. Two days after a concussion knocked him out of Seattle’s playoff win over Washington, a smiling Alexander was looking and feeling better, talking optimistically about being ready to play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. But when someone asked if he felt as good as he looked, the NFL MVP wouldn’t go that far. “Um, no,” Alexander said, jokingly running his hand against the side of his shaved head. “I wish.” Seahawks starting right tackle Sean Locklear was being held without bail Monday in the King County Jail for investigation of domestic violence assault, police and the team said. Locklear was booked early Sunday, hours after playing in the team’s 20-10 playoff win over the Washington Redskins. Dungy reflects Tony Dungy plans to return as Colts coach but left open the possibility of retirement following a season marked by the death of his 18-year-old son. “I really don’t know how I’ll react the next few days,” he said Monday, a day after the Colts were eliminated from the playoffs. “I think I’ll be back. But it will really be the first time I’ve had to think about it.” Turner to 49ers Fired Oakland Raiders coach Norv Turner was negotiating a move across San Francisco Bay on Monday night to become the 49ers’ offensive coordinator, a team source said. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn’t complete, said Turner is expected to introduced later this week as coach Mike Nolan’s replacement for Mike McCarthy, who became the Green Bay Packers’ head coach last week after one terrible season with the Niners. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Sam Allardyce’s England exit a ‘shame’, says captain Wayne Rooney

first_imgWayne Rooney admits it was a “shame” to see Sam Allardyce sacked as England boss but urged the squad to stick together after a tumultuous week.Allardyce’s ignominious exit last week, after just 67 days and one game in charge, came after a Daily Telegraph investigation into football corruption.Gareth Southgate has been installed as interim manager for the next four matches, and one of his first announcements was to retain Rooney as captain.The Manchester United forward is likely to lead England out against Malta at Wembley on Saturday in the second of their 2018 World Cup qualifiers.And the 30-year-old is eager to focus on football after a “tough couple of weeks” off the field for the national side.Speaking at a press conference, Rooney said: “We need to build on the three points we won in the last game (against Slovakia), and the other side of it isn’t our issue, it’s nothing for us to be concerned about.“It’s a shame, everyone could see how excited Sam was for the job and he came in and showed that enthusiasm to the players. It’s a shame it’s happened and I’m sure he deeply regrets it. It was a decision for the FA to take.“As a group of players we need to stick together and concentrate on the football. For the FA I’m sure it has been a tough couple of weeks but for the players we’ve been with our clubs and we have to focus on the games.”The start of Rooney’s England career intersected briefly with the latter days of Southgate’s just over a decade ago.Former Everton youngster Rooney backed the appointment of the England Under-21 boss, and also suggested he was well-placed to succeed.Rooney added: “When I first got into the squad he was in the squad then. He’s done a very job with the Under-21s, and he’s got an opportunity to show what he can do at senior level.“He’ll bring his own way of working, it’s going to be good to see what that is in the next week. We have to buy into his ways and take his ideas on board.” 1 Wayne Rooney last_img read more
