Nishikori prevails in tough opening match

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Japanese teenager Kei Nishikori beat American Robert Kendrick in three sets Tuesday to advance to the second round of the Japan Open.Nishikori downed Kendrick 7-6 (7-3), 6-7 (5-7), 6-2 and will meet Spain’s Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the second round Wednesday. GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMEScenter_img Defending champion David Ferrer of Spain — the top-seeded player at the tournament — has a first-round bye along with second-seeded Andy Roddick.Nishikori took control of the match when he broke Kendrick with a blistering crosscourt forehand to go ahead 3-2 in the third set. He won the match when Kendrick’s return in the final game was long.“He’s got a very good serve,” the 18-year-old Nishikori said of his opponent. “I knew I just had to wait for a chance and finally I got it in the third set and was able to break him.”Nishikori was returning to Japan after losing in the first round of this tournament in his debut last year.He beat American James Blake at Delray Beach in February to win his first ATP singles title and also beat World No. 4 Ferrer in the third round of the U.S. Open before falling to Juan Martin del Potro in the fourth round.Nishikori said his experience in the past year has made him a better player.“It’s a huge relief to win here in Japan,” said Nishikori, who is 84th in the world rankings. “Last year, I was very nervous and couldn’t play my game. This year I was nervous too but was able to settle down and I think that’s a result of the confidence I’ve built up in the last year.”Nishikori has given the men’s game a boost in Japan, which — until his win earlier this year — had not had a winner in men’s singles on the ATP tour since Shuzo Matsuoka won in Seoul in 1992.In other first-round matches, Croatia’s Roko Karanusic defeated Japanese qualifier Hiroki Kondo 6-2, 6-2. Karanusic will next meet No. 9 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic.Wayne Odesnik downed Kevin Kim 6-4, 6-3 to set up a clash with Serb Viktor Troicki, while American Jesse Levine rallied for a 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 win over Thailand’s Danai Udomchoke. Levine will face Ferrer in the second round.In the women’s bracket, Israel’s Shahar Peer, seeded sixth, beat Japanese veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-3, 6-1. The 38-year-old, who made her comeback to pro tennis this year, won this tournament four times in the 1990s.“It’s not easy to fill the blank of 11 years and a half. Today’s loss left me with a mixed feeling. I was disappointed, but it’s not so bad considering that it’s impossible to do in only five months,” Date-Krumm told reporters.“I’ve been playing in order to improve the quality of my tennis. I felt much better than I did in the Pan Pacific. I couldn’t play 100 percent two weeks ago. Of course, I was disappointed, but I’m going to take it positively.” last_img read more

Ganguly explains why he has dropped Dhoni to number three in…

first_imgKolkata: Despite his disappointing debut, India first saw MS Dhoni’s fiery batting in the 2005 ODI against Pakistan in Visakhapatnam. Batting at number three, Dhoni scored 148 runs. BCCI president and former captain Sourav Ganguly has decided to drop Dhoni to number three. After that single innings against Pakistan, Dhoni never had to leave the Indian team again.But Ganguly is now trying to explain why Dhoni was dropped to number three against Pakistan. “If Sachin Tendulkar had batted at number six, Tendulkar would not be here today,” Ganguly said in an interview with SportsTalk. I knew Dhoni’s batting prowess. Dhoni, who played for my team in the Challenger Trophy, opened the innings and scored a century. That is why Dhoni was dropped at number three in the match against Pakistan.The best players should be at the top of the batting order. Only then can they bring out their full potential. No one can develop into a good batsman if he is just below the batting order. Nor can you be a big star in the dressing room alone.Dhoni’s ability to hit sixes was immense. Dhoni may have changed his style towards the end of his career. But when it came to international cricket, it was imperative that he be allowed to play freely. Dhoni should have continued batting in the top order. “I have said this many times in the commentary box since I retired,” Ganguly said.Dhoni, who has not played in an Indian shirt since last year’s ODI World Cup, announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15 on Independence Day. Along with Dhoni, teammate Suresh Raina has also announced his retirement.last_img read more

Ex-girlfriend of accused ‘Facebook killer’ meets with victim’s daughters

first_img Related Cleveland Police(NEW YORK) — The ex-girlfriend of Steve Stephens, the suspect in the Cleveland, Ohio, Facebook killing, said she is trying to “pick up the pieces of my world” after Stephens used her name in a video of a murder he uploaded to Facebook.“I don’t know if I know how to be Joy Lane anymore. I don’t know how to pick up all the pieces of my world at the moment,” Joy Lane told WJW, a Fox station in Cleveland, on Tuesday. “I’ve got a lot of negative comments…I’ve been told that I’m the one who should have died.”Stephens, who dated Lane for several years, allegedly gunned down Robert Godwin Sr., 74, in Cleveland, Ohio, Sunday and uploaded the video to Facebook.In the video, which has since been removed from Facebook, Stephens mentions Lane in the moments before the shooting, saying to the victim, “She’s the reason why all this about to happen to you.”Godwin can be seen raising his hands in an apparent attempt to ward off his attacker before he is shot once in the head.Two of Godwin’s daughters, Tonya Godwin Baines and Debbie Godwin, met with Lane on Tuesday and told her “[It’s] not your fault.”“I feel bad,” Lane told the sisters, according to WJW. “The last thing [Godwin] would have said is my name and he didn’t know me or why he was saying it, and that’s been difficult.”Baines told ABC News Monday that the video “forever will be in my mind because I saw the fear in my father’s eyes.”Baines said it “feels like our heart is just ripped out of our chest. For somebody to brutally murder my father like that is unbelievable.”Baines described her father as the epitome of a family man who “would give you the shirt off his back.”“He taught us about God, he taught us love, forgiveness. Just to know that I will never ever hear my father’s voice again is devastating,” Baines said.“We can never replace him,” she added, crying. “A part of us died with him.”Lane told WJW she last spoke to Stephens the night before the shooting and he told her he had quit his job and moved out of the state.Stephens shot and killed himself after a brief police chase in Erie County, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, according to Pennsylvania State Police.Police received a tip that the vehicle police were looking for in connection to Stephens, who had been on the run since Sunday, was in a McDonald’s parking lot near Erie, about 100 miles northeast of Cleveland, Calvin Williams, Cleveland’s police chief, said at a news conference Tuesday.It was a McDonald’s employee who called police after recognizing Stephens while at the drive-thru.“The drive-thru employee that was working at the time recognized him,” the restaurant’s owner, Tom Ducharme Jr., told ABC News. “Basically told him it was going to be a minute for his fries. He was a little nerved up, a little agitated and didn’t want to wait, said he had to go.”Surveillance video captured Stephens’ car traveling down the road before police officers eventually rammed his car, bringing Stephens to a stop.“The vehicles surrounded the white Ford Focus at which time Mr. Stephens took his own life,” Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Wayne Kline said in a news conference.Police have not yet confirmed whether the McDonald’s drive-thru employee will be given reward money.McDonald’s applauded the crew members in a statement Tuesday to ABC news.“We applaud the crew members at this McDonald’s restaurant who recognized the suspect and did the right thing by quickly alerting the authorities of his location,” a spokesperson for McDonald’s said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s loved ones and all of those impacted by this horrific crime.”Stephens claimed to have committed multiple homicides, according to police, but no additional victims have been found. The investigation is ongoing, police said Tuesday.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more

CAS decision on Russian appeal on Friday

first_imgA decision on an appeal by Russian athletes to compete at the Pyeongchang Olympics will be issued on Friday at 1100 local time (0200 GMT), the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said on Thursday.CAS has been handling several appeals from the Russians after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) invited 169 carefully screened Russian athletes to compete as independents in South Korea.Russia was banned from Pyeongchang over the Sochi 2014 doping scandal and the IOC had banned dozens of athletes from the games for life and stripped their Sochi Games medals following several investigations.CAS upheld the appeal of 28 athletes due to insufficient evidence but the IOC still refused to invite them saying the evidence was there.CAS is also handling appeals of Russians, including Olympic champion skater Viktor Ahn, who had not been named in the doping investigations or had any prior doping offences but were still not invited due to doping suspicions by the IOC.The Games run from Feb. 9-25.last_img read more

You saw how Gor Mahia and Leopards were turned round like amateurs and yet these are big teams.”The Secretary General confirmed this year’s Senior Challenge Cup will take place in Ethiopia in November and December. “Our delegation will visit Addis Ababa after the World Cup to finalise arrangements and sponsorship,” Musonye underlined.This will be the first time for Ethiopia to host the event since 2006.Rwanda will host the Club Championship in August that is usually sponsored by country’s President Paul Kagame with TP Mazembe and Vita Club both from DRC Congo taking part as guest teams.“This year’s Club Championships will be a big one since it will be part of the 20th anniversary of the Rwanda Genocide and we must stand with the people of Rwanda,” the secretary general underscored.Kenya will be represented by Gor who were crowned last season’s champions for the first time in 18 years.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, April 24 – The Cecafa Nile Basin Cup Winners Cup and Under-23 tournaments have been added to the regional football calendar by the governing body.Nile Basin competition will feature teams that finished second or won their respective domestic cups in the 12 member countries while the September Under-23 tourney is aimed at getting Cecafa teams ready for the Rio 2016 Olympics with both events running in Sudan.last_img read more

‘How many England players would get into the Wales team? None!’ – Gareth Bale

first_imgWales stars Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey continued to wind up England ahead of Thursday’s Euro 2016 showdown, by claiming no Three Lions player is good enough to get into their team.Chris Coleman’s men will go into the Lille clash hoping to claim a first win over England since 1984, and the Wales stars have piled on the pressure in the build-up.Roy Hodgson has already accused Bale of disrespecting England, after the Real Madrid flyer said Wales have “more pride and passion”.But Bale stood by his comments as he addressed the media on Tuesday, and said the he and the Wales squad believe they are the better team.When asked to respond to Jack Wilshere’s claim that England have the superior side, Bale said: “They are entitled to their opinion – I don’t care. If they think they have a better squad, good for them.”Then, asked how many England players would get into this Wales team, he laughed: “None”.Bale was later applauded off the press conference stage by a group of Wales fans, and his team-mate Aaron Ramsey, more seriously this time, echoed his views.“I believe we have the best team,” said the Arsenal midfielder.“We’ve been through a lot over the years; we’ve been together through thick and thin. We’re seeing the rewards of that. We believe in ourselves. We have grown as a team.”“It’s about time we did beat them,” Ramsey added. “We are top [of the group], they got a draw, all the pressure is on them.“We’ve got no pressure, everyone is expecting them to win, hopefully that will play to our advantage. We are having fun.”When asked about Hodgson’s comments that he had ‘disrespected’ England, Bale said: “It’s good that they bit. People can say what they want.“Someone said I disrespected England, which wasn’t the case. I never said that they didn’t have passion and pride, I just feel that we have more.“Whether it’s football or rugby or whatever sport it is, in Wales we seem to have that next level.“We really feel it on the pitch, watching the games. I’m just giving my opinion.“I’m happy with my comments. I feel we’ve got a massive team spirit, one of the best I’ve seen.“For me there are no mind games. Nothing’s fazing us, we don’t feel any pressure, we just want to enjoy the occasion.“It’s going to be a derby, a big atmosphere. We know that, we’re ready for it, we’re going to enjoy it.“We know we’re going to give 100 per cent, and we know that when we give everything for the Welsh shirt and our nation we can’t do any more.” Gareth Bale is confident in Wales’ ability ahead of Thursday’s England clash 1last_img read more
