‘Djokovic has Exceeded all Expectations’

first_imgBut since then, he has been riding on a crest of a wave, having triumphed at Wimbledon, Cincinnati, the U.S. Open and Shanghai, winning 29 of his past 30 encounters in an incredible run of form.“I honestly believe that he has exceeded his own expectations,” Croft told Sky Sports. “They said they had a plan in place when they got (coach) Marian Vajda and the fitness trainer (Gebhard Gritsch) back on side again. But I think the plan was to play well at the U.S. Open – I think it came a lot earlier than that. He said the catalyst was playing as well as he did on the grass courts.“Remember, he came very close to winning Queen’s where he lost to (Marin) Cilic, but he also admits to extremes in how he looks back at his year because only five months ago, he was in dire straits. He was all over the place. He was so off-balance in everything that he was doing on the court, particularly on the backhand side, and now here he is full of confidence. He’s found joy back on the tennis court again.“Five months ago, he was in a very, very dark place, and I really honestly believe that he has exceeded all of his expectations.”It was in 2016 when Andy Murray usurped Djokovic for the No. 1 ranking in Paris, so it is almost ironic that the Serb has returned to the top of the rankings in the French capital.“He went into such a deep decline after losing that top spot. He’s going to be one of the few who have come from such a low ranking and now to be back at number one on Monday is going to be absolutely extraordinary,” added former British No. 1 Croft. “Tennis is not easy, but when you go to the depths of despair and you find a way to build yourself back up again, he almost looks twice as strong as he has ever looked before.“What a record he has already achieved in his career and who knows what he might go on and achieve. I did not see what he achieved this year coming. I thought it was going to take him a lot longer to get back.”Rusedski has reiterated the fact that he expects Djokovic to continue to dominate men’s tennis and says the 31-year-old could well surpass Nadal and Roger Federer in the Grand Slam stakes.“He’s doing things that other players haven’t done before,” said Rusedski. “We always talk about Federer and Nadal, but this guy Djokovic has a real shot to go down in history, and possibly as the greatest to have ever played the game. He’s only six (Grand Slams) away from Federer and at the pace he’s playing right now, there’s a real chance.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Annabel Croft and Greg Rusedski feel Novak Djokovic is on course for complete world domination in the coming years.Djokovic described his return to the No. 1 ranking as “a phenomenal achievement” knowing he will replace Rafael Nadal as the world’s top player on Monday after a two-year absence.The 31-year-old is looking to win the Paris Masters for a record-extending fifth time and his elevation back to the top is remarkable, as it comes just five months after he slumped to 22 in the world – his lowest ranking for 12 years – when he was knocked out of the French Open in the quarter-finals.

Wimbledon 2019: Novak Djokovic moves one win from fifth title

first_imgThere were moments when Djokovic seemed to believe he was in a bearpit of an arena, rather than the genteel surroundings of Centre Court in leafy southwest London.He took on the crowd for showing support for Bautista Agut, when the Spaniard, seeded 23rd, produced a spirited fightback to take the second set, and may have won few friends. Related News Novak Djokovic won through to his sixth Wimbledon final and will chase a fifth title Sunday after grinding out a semifinal victory Friday against Roberto Bautista Agut.The 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory for the top seed was not always pretty, and his frustration boiled over several times. Wimbledon 2019: Simona Halep eases past Elina Svitolina, into final Serena Williams one match from history as she powers through to Wimbledon finalcenter_img Yet this was all about getting another job done for Djokovic, another step on a well-trodden path toward glory.20112014201520182019 #Wimbledon | @DjokerNole pic.twitter.com/gmo8ghfeQg— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 12, 2019It has been Djokovic, and not Andy Murray, not Roger Federer and certainly not Rafael Nadal, who has been the dominant force in the men’s singles at Wimbledon over the last decade.Titles in 2011, 2014, 2015 and last year have helped the 32-year-old reach a haul of 15 Grand Slams, with more surely to come. He may one day become the most prolific major winner.By comparison, Bautista Agut was playing his first Grand Slam semifinal at the age of 31 in a week when he was meant to be at his own stag party in Ibiza. He was shaky in the early moments and dropped serve twice in the opening set.The inevitable question was whether this would remain a one-sided contest, as disappointing as the two women’s semifinals Thursday, or whether Bautista Agut might find a response.Watched from the Royal Box by Rod Laver and Alex Ferguson, the initially imperturbable Djokovic suddenly hit a dip and his opponent began to score with winners.One such shot, a tremendous inside-out forehand, whistled past Djokovic’s backhand to earn a break.Djokovic became ragged and his mood darkened when Bautista Agut leveled the match with a forehand off the netcord, the ball dropping dead on the world No. 1’s side.Seemingly riled by the British crowd siding with Bautista Agut, rather than the time-and-again Wimbledon champion in their midst, Djokovic threw up his arms in an invitation for them to get behind him instead.Back to defend his crown…Reigning champion @DjokerNole advances to his sixth #Wimbledon final where he’ll bid to win a fifth title after beating Roberto Bautista Agut pic.twitter.com/OYtfSUC7Hv— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 12, 2019The rallies became longer, Djokovic ready to test Bautista Agut’s mental and physical stamina. And when Bautista Agut held his first service game of the third set, Djokovic swung his racket toward the grass in exasperation.Eventually he managed to channel his aggression sensibly and broke for 4-2 by taking command of the net on successive points, roaring a battle cry when he smashed away to seize the momentum.Djokovic pointed to his ear, another message to the crowd, when he lashed a backhand down the line to win a remarkable 45-shot point and save break point in his next service game.He took the set, missed out on three break points at the start of the fourth but struck in Bautista Agut’s next service game, again in the fifth game, and it was all downhill from there.This was seen by many as the aperitif for the second semifinal between Federer and Nadal. Djokovic may end up being the headline act again come Sunday evening.John McEnroe, commentating for the BBC, observed that Djokovic had managed to turn his perception of crowd bias into a positive.”He used it to energize himself and you’ve got to love that,” McEnroe said.STATISTICAL BREAKDOWNNovak Djokovic [1] bt Roberto Bautista Agut [23] 6-2 4-6 6-3 6-2WINNERS/UNFORCED ERRORSDjokovic – 42/29Bautista Agut – 34/30ACES/DOUBLE FAULTSDjokovic – 9/3Bautista Agut – 5/2BREAK POINTS WONDjokovic – 5/8Bautista Agut – 1/5 FIRST SERVE PERCENTAGEDjokovic – 64Bautista Agut – 67PERCENTAGE OF POINTS WON ON FIRST/SECOND SERVEDjokovic – 77/51Bautista Agut – 68/49TOTAL POINTSDjokovic – 119Bautista Agut – 102last_img read more

Nitehawks rally past Heat to take commanding lead in KIJHL Final

first_imgIf the Chase Heat need a shoulder to cry on following Game two of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Championship Series, the squad can put in a call to the Nelson Leafs.Because the Nelson Leafs are probably the only team that can relate to the heartbreaking experienced by the Heat after Beaver Valley rallied from a 4-1 deficit to edge Chase 5-4 Tuesday night at the Fruitvale Arena to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-five final.Game three is Thursday in Chase.The Heat looked primed to even the series after jumping all over the Hawks in the opening period, building a 3-0 lead eight minutes into the game on timely goals by Josh Bourne, on the power play, Michael Fidanza and Cory Loring.Dylan Kent stopped the bleeding with a power play marker for Beaver Valley two minutes before the period ended.But Kolten Moore restored the three-goal advantage 10 seconds after Kent’s marker. This all happening despite the Heat being outshot 15-8 in the period.However, unlike the comeback against the Leafs during Game two of the Murdoch Division Final when Beaver Valley scored twice in the final minute of the game before winning in overtime, the Hawks had a full 40 minutes to complete this comeback.Two goals by Bradley Ross in the second period combined with a power play goal from McKoy Hauck midway through the third frame tied the game at 4-4.That set the stage for Aiden Bowell to complete the comeback with a goal seven minutes from the finish line.Beaver Valley outshot the Heat 42-21 making a winner out of Tallon Kramer, who rebounded from a shaky opening frame.Nic Bruyere was in goal for Chase.If necessary, Game four of the series goes Friday in Chase.If the series needs to go the full five games, the final contest is scheduled back in Fruitvale Sunday.For Heat fans thinking about jumping off the bus, Chase rallied from a 2-0 deficit during the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference Final to oust Osoyoos Coyotes in five games.last_img read more

CRYSTAL WATER STAKES QUOTES

first_imgNOTES: Winning owner Charles Garvey is from Alberta, Canada. -30- TRAINER QUOTES JOCKEY QUOTEScenter_img FERNANDO PEREZ, PATRIOTS RULE, WINNER: “The turf is a little wet today; he didn’t handle it great at first. He likes to close and he finishes well, though, so I wasn’t worried. He doesn’t like to be inside. In his last race he was on the inside and was fighting the whole time but today I had a really good trip and he fired.”             ROBERTINO DIODORO, PATRIOTS RULE, WINNER: “My assistant (Sean Williams) said the horse has had a couple of rough trips and last time he needed the start, definitely, off the layoff. He’s a horse that doesn’t like to run on the inside of horses, either.“I know a lot of guys have been on me and Sean to change riders and stuff, because when you look at a lot of his replays you can point the finger at the rider and say what the heck’s he doing, but it’s the way the horse is. Fernando (Perez) has done a great job . . . He’s not that big of a horse, but he’s got the right attitude. He doesn’t want to run inside of horses. The big thing with him is to get a little pace to run at and get a clear trip. He was in the clear down the backside and running comfortably. This is probably the first time I’ve won a stakes and didn’t holler. I never said a word the whole race.”last_img read more

LENNYFROMALIBU STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY MAY 28, 2016

first_img            NOTES: Winning owner/breeder Pamela Ziebarth resides in Arcadia, CA. MARTY JONES, AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “We ended up getting a great trip. You could tell after the first quarter mile that he was in the right spot and he was gonna be tough to beat. I keep feeling like I should’ve gotten more out of this horse, he’s a really good horse. Hopefully, there’s one more chapter in the book for him and he can string together five or six good races. Hopefully, we can finish off the year with something big with him.             FLAVIEN PRAT, AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “Marty just asked me not to rush him. He broke so well and I had an easy lead. I was surprised to be on the lead that easily with him but after that when I asked him after crossing the dirt, he just took off.“I heard he is always good when he’s fresh and I didn’t know him, so the layoff wasn’t a concern for me. The way he went to the lead like that, so easily, I would say he likes to run fresh.” MIKE SMITH, FOREST CHATTER, SECOND: “I was the speed of the race and I got away extremely slow and basically just gave him (Ambitious Brew) about a four or five-length head start. At that point, I couldn’t do much about it. I tried to cut every corner I could after that and he really ran a gallant effort around the second turn but it gave him way too much to do and the winner got such an easy lead, it was over two jumps out of the gate.” PAM ZIEBARTH, OWNER/BREEDER AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “This is a great way for him to come back. The whole crew at the barn has been so happy with this horse. They were texting me this morning, telling me ‘We got this.’ We have 12 horses with Marty now and they’re all homebreds. Fifty percent of them are Cal-bred.” JOCKEY QUOTES TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more

Uber fires head of self-driving division during Google’s lawsuit

first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… David Curry Uber fired the head of its self-driving unit, Anthony Levandowski on Thursday. He has been accused of stealing trade secrets from Google’s self-driving division, Waymo, in 2014 when he left the company.Levandowski contract with Uber was terminated after he failed to supply the court with information requested, according to The New York Times. Uber has been quick to confirm the removal and reaffirm that its self-driving division did not use stolen information from Waymo.See Also: Ford spends billions to meet ambitious self-driving goalWaymo filed a lawsuit against Uber a few months after the ride-sharing giant acquired Otto, the self-driving truck startup founded by Levandowski after he left Google.It accuses Levandowski of stealing thousands of trade secrets, including proprietary data on Waymo’s Lidar system. In a court session, Waymo showed a timeline of events that claimed Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick and Levandowski discussed a possible acquisition before Otto left stealth, hinting at collusion between the company and Levandowski.Probably doesn’t change muchWaymo has already filed a separate lawsuit against Levandowski, so the removal of the employee may do little to deter the Uber lawsuit. A few weeks ago, the company was denied a chance to settle the lawsuit in private arbitration.A public trial may be the next step or Waymo may force Uber to settle on rough terms.In the meantime, the judge may force Uber to halt its self-driving program, while the lawsuit is active. A preliminary injunction has already been filed and if Waymo were to win the lawsuit, it could call for a ban of the program indefinitely.It is one of the most explosive trials in Silicon Valley and sure to scare off engineers that may be planning to make a similar gamble on a startup.

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Icardi family rift goes public between brother and wifeby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveInter Milan captain Mauro Icardi says he won’t be pressured into signing a new deal.However, a family rift has been revealed involving his wife and agent, Wanda Nara.Icardi posted to Instagram: “I want to clarify to all the fans who read work written by pseudo-journalists in ‘serious’ newspapers, which write or give instructions to write without knowing or having a real idea of the facts, that my renewal will only take place when Inter make me a correct and concrete offer.“Only after that can we talk about my renewal with truth, while putting to one side the lies that have been spread.”His brother Guido, on the other hand, could not resist a dig at Nara, suggesting she was a ‘parasite’.“Of course, he turns over €20,000 a week to me …” replied the tattoo artist to a question about whether Mauro helped him financially.When asked about his relationship with Mauro, he responded: “I never said that it was all bad with him, just that there are too many parasites attached to his wallet, but he’s an example for me and I love him generally speaking.”So what does he think about his sibling’s wife?“Obviously…” he wrote, followed by a vomiting emoji. last_img read more

Barenaked Ladies musician awarded 60000 in legal battle over painting

first_imgThe Canadian Press TORONTO — A Toronto gallery must now pay tens of thousands of dollars to a Canadian musician who alleged he was sold a fake painting purported to be by the renowned Indigenous artist Norval Morrisseau.Ontario’s top court says the trial judge made several errors in dismissing the legal action by Kevin Hearn, a member of the Barenaked Ladies, against the Maslak-McLeod Gallery.Hearn purchased the painting, titled “Spirit Energy of Mother Earth,” in 2005 after receiving assurances that it was authentic and being promised a valid provenance statement attesting to that fact.Court documents say Hearn launched his legal battle after an official at the Art Gallery of Ontario told him the painting was likely a fake, and the gallery’s now-deceased owner refused to investigate the allegation or issue a refund.At trial, an expert testified that while the painting drew on Morrisseau’s “visual vocabulary” it did not fit in with his other works from that time and she believed it to be a forgery.In a ruling released today, the court of appeal says the trial judge erred in rejecting the expert’s testimony based on his own research, which was not entered as evidence.It says the judge also misapprehending the evidence regarding the agreement between Hearn and the gallery, particularly in relation to the issuance of a valid provenance statement for the painting.The appeal court says the gallery must pay Hearn $50,000 plus interest for breach of contract and breach of the Sale of Goods Act, as well as $10,000 in punitive damages. If Hearn receives the money, he must return the painting to the gallery, the ruling says.last_img read more
