Muguruza stuns Venus to win first Wimbledon title

first_imgGarbine Muguruza stormed to her first Wimbledon title and shattered Venus Williams’ history bid with a majestic 7—5, 6—0 victory in today’s final.Muguruza overwhelmed Williams with a supreme display of power hitting in 77 minutes on Centre Court to become only the second Spanish woman to win Wimbledon.Watched from the Royal Box by King Juan Carlos of Spain, the 23-year-old finally got her hands on the Venus Rosewater Dish two years after losing to the American’s sister Serena in her maiden Wimbledon final.Fittingly, it was Muguruza’s current coach Conchita Martinez who was the first woman to raise the Spanish flag at Wimbledon in 1994 when she defeated Martina Navratilova.“The first set was tough. We both had a lot of chances.I’m glad I took mine,” Muguruza said.“Two years ago I lost in the final against Serena and she told me I would win one day. Here I am. Finally!”Venezuela-born Muguruza’s second Grand Slam title, following her French Open triumph last year, denied Williams, 37, in her attempt to become the oldest Wimbledon champion in the Open era.Back in the Wimbledon final after an eight-year absence, Williams had hoped to clinch a sixth All England Club title, nine years after she last lifted the trophy.Instead, she paid the price for a surprisingly nerve-ridden display that condemned her to a second Grand Slam disappointment this year following her Australian Open final loss against Serena.“Congratulations Garbine. I know how hard you work,” Williams said.“I tried my best to do the things Serena does, but I think there will be other opportunities.”Since winning her maiden Grand Slam title in Paris, Muguruza had endured something of a sophomore slump as her ranking dropped out of the top 10.But she has rediscovered her mojo on grass and will climb to fifth when the new rankings are confirmed next week.Remarkably, of her four tour-level titles, two are now Grand Slams.With persistent drizzle blanketing the All England Club, Williams and Muguruza were competing in the first Wimbledon final to begin under the roof, watched by a sell-out crowd including Hollywood actress Hilary Swank.Twenty years ago, Venus admitted she was a bundle of nerves when she made a losing Wimbledon debut against Magdalena Grzybowska and, in her ninth All England Club final, once again there was anxiety coursing through her error-strewn display.Fortified by a cross-court winner to bring up break point at 3-2, Williams looked poised to seize control, but instead a tame forehand into the net to let Muguruza off the hook.It was the first of a series of vital escapes for Muguruza, who was matching Venus blow for blow in a series of bruising baseline rallies.Gifted two set point at 4-5, Venus couldn’t deliver the knockout blow and Muguruza over-powered her in a gripping rally to save the first before scrambling out of trouble on the second.Muguruza had the momentum now, her piercing ground-strokes gradually moving Williams into enough awkward areas to land the crucial first break at 5-5.Williams was rattled by Muguruza’s barrage, fatally allowing the Spaniard’s lob to drop in and present her with set points that she gleefully gobbled up.Muguruza was just six when Venus first won Wimbledon and the 23-year-old’s third major final appearance was dwarfed by Williams’ 16 Grand Slam title matches.But in all those finals, only Serena had produced the lethal power and poise Muguruza was showing and suddenly Williams was beginning to look her age.Still reeling from the shock of losing the first set, she served up a limp double fault on break point to hand Muguruza the lead at the start of the second set.Williams was shattered and Muguruza went for the kill so ruthlessly that in the blink of an eye she had broken twice more to take a 5-0 lead.Muguruza had spoken eloquently this week of etching her name onto the Wimbledon honours board alongside Venus, Serena and the other All England Club icons.It took one last blizzard of thunderous winners to ensure her dream would come true.

Afghan colts want to build on new found Test status

first_imgBy Shyam Sundar Chennai, Jun 27 (PTI) Everything about Afghanistan is fascinating. It seems every aspect associated with their lives have a story attached to it and sports is no exception. The story of a country ravaged by war getting Test status has sent cricket fans across the globe into raptures. Its a matter of time when Rashid Khan will be seen in white flannels bamboozling in the batsmen with his sharp googlies. The Test status is also an assurance for the Gen-Next of Afghan cricket that they have a future if they can do well. With dreams in their eyes and determination to succeed, the U-19 national team of Afghanistan has touched base in Chennai for a preparatory camp for U-19 World Cup qualifiers. The boys are eager to follow the footsteps of their heroes Rashid and Mohammed Nabi, said under-19 coach Dawlat Ahmedzai. “Cricket has come a long way in the country in the past few years. The success had come after a lot of hard work and sacrifices. Also IPL has played a big role with Rashid Khans performance for Sunrisers Hyderabad has helped in taking the craze to another level. Rashid and Nabi playing IPL is the best thing that could have happened for us,” Ahmedzai told PTI during an interaction today. Ahmedzai thanked for support from the current government and also the general public, a big departure from the earlier troubled times. Just like South Africa played its first internationbal post apartheid against India (back in 1991), Ahmedzai wont mind if they make their debut against India but Zimbabwe is a more likely opponent as of now, he said. He feels that they have to build up on their impressive performances in T20s and ODIs. “We have played in the T20 World Cup and 50 overs World Cup in 2015 but this (becoming a Test nation) is bigger and has come at probably the right time. We need to build on this,” he added. “We have a good domestic structure and now that we have got Test status, there is big scope for improvement in infrastructural quality. We have eight stadiums and multiple academies in our country.” Among the next batch of crickters, the coach picked Zahir Khan, Ibrahim and Imran Mohammeidi among ones to watch out for. Teeangers Mohammeidi and Parwiz Malikzai couldnt hide their excitement. “It is a massive boost for our country. Cricket is the number one sport in Afghanistan and this a big step forward,” Malikzai said. Malikzai however is not happy how international media potrays Afghanistan as a “war torn nation”. “Cities like Kabul are as safe as any other,” said the left-handed all-rounder, who is a fan of Indian player Yuvraj Singh said. Mohammeidi felt that Rashid is an inspiration for countless youngsters to take up cricket. “Test status is a huge motivation for the entire country. It will chart a new path for Afghan cricket,” Malikzai and Mohammeidi signed off. PTI SS KHS KHSadvertisementlast_img read more

IPL 2019 Auction: Varun Chakravarathy ‘over the moon’ after bagging million-dollar deal

first_imgUncapped Indian Varun Chakravarthy was sold to Kings XI Punjab for a whopping Rs 8.40 crore at the IPL 2019 Auction in Jaipur on Tuesday. Varun Chakravarthy, who had a base price of Rs 20 lakh, said he was “over the moon” after fetching big bucks at the auction which witnessed some intense bidding war for the mystery spinner.After a bidding war between Kolkata Knight Riders and KXIP, mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy went to Punjab. Varun Chakravarthy, who hails from Tamil Nadu, has as many as seven variations up his sleeve. Chakravarthy, 27, was an unknown quantity till he turned heads with his performances in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) and the Vijay Hazare Trophy earlier this year.The architect-turned-cricketer said getting a buyer at a base price of Rs 20 lakh was the only thing on his mind.”I am over the moon… I never expected this [to be picked up for such a big amount]. I thought I would be bought at my base price,” Varun told PTI.Chakravarthy broke into the Tamil Nadu 50-overs team on the back of impressive performances in the TNPL for eventual champions Siechem Madurai Panthers and subsequently made his Ranji Trophy debut. He said being picked by an IPL team would help him grow as a cricketer as he could learn from Indian stars including KXIP captain and fellow Tamil Nadu spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.”It is a big opportunity for me. I can’t express my happiness in words. I hope to learn a lot from people like Ravichandran Ashwin, who is the captain of Kings XI Punjab and the others. I can pick the brains of leading international stars and use it to become a better cricketer,” he said.advertisementChakravarthy was designing buildings a few years ago, having completed Bachelors in Architecture from SRM University in Chennai. He initially bowled medium-pace before taking up spin. However, injury forced him to give up bowling medium-pace and turn to spin and his fortunes changed as he began to make an impact in the highly competitive city league.”I stopped being a medium-pacer and took up spin bowling as I felt it would put less pressure on my knee (which I had injured). As it happened the move worked,” he said.Varun said his good show in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, during which he took 22 wickets, helped him get noticed and brought him on the radar of IPL franchises.”My good show in the Vijay Hazare Trophy brought me to prominence and probably IPL franchises would have taken note. I am looking forward to sharing the dressing room with the big names of the game,” he added.He attracted attention during the TNPL for his ability to bowl a variety of deliveries. He mixed off-spinners and leg-cutters making it tough for batsmen to pick him. He picked up nine wickets in the TNPL and was able to carry on the good work in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.He also attended trials with IPL team Mumbai Indians earlier this year. S Vincent, who coached Chakravarthy during his early years at St Patrick’s school here, and is now based in Dubai, said the spinner is a fast learner.Apart from being a quality slow bowler, Chakravarthy is adept with the bat too, Vincent added. He said given the talent Chakravarthy possessed and his dedication, he was going to go places and the IPL could be the first step in that direction.Also Read | IPL 2019 Auction: 8 teams spend Rs 106.80 crore on 60 playersAlso Read | Yuvraj Singh will play for Mumbai Indians next yearAlso Read | Sam Curran gets auctioned for INR 7.20 crorelast_img read more

Shakib relates to Dhoni’s outburst at umpires: I did the same in Nidahas Trophy

first_imgBangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan could relate to Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s recent outburst at the umpire during an IPL encounter as he was in former India captain’s shoes exactly 13 months back during an international T20 encounter against Sri Lanka.In a rare public show of anger, Dhoni breached the Players’ Code of Conduct entering the field of play to challenge one of the umpires Ulhas Gandhe after he signalled no-ball only to backtrack at the insistence of square leg umpire Bruce Oxenford. Dhoni was let off with a light penalty of 50 percent match fees.”I did the same thing in Nidahas Trophy. I can’t make any comments on that,” Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Shakib told reporters on the eve of their next game against Delhi Capitals on Sunday.He was referring to a Nidahas Trophy encounter against Sri Lanka where a no-ball decision had irked him and he wanted his players to pull-out before changing his mind. Once the match was over, there was an ugly altercation between players of the both teams and dressing rooms were damaged.”It happened at the heat of the moment and it shows how passionate you are as a cricketer. How much you want to win for your team,” Shakib tried to rationalise Dhoni’s behaviour which was certainly out of line.Hyderabad’s performance has been patchy this year and Shakib pointed that there are areas of concern in all three departments.”We have not been as good at the death as earlier years. We have conceded a lot of runs in the final three overs. We have the quality and we are working to minimise the damage. Also the middle-order has not fired but there is a lot of talent and we can inflict a damage on the opposition,” said Shakib.advertisementOn personal front, Shakib is disappointed that he is not playing but he admitted that all the four overseas players (David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi) have performed.”All the overseas players are doing really well. It is disappointing but you need to understand the situation. Very difficult for team management. I need to remain fit and be ready. Also World Cup is coming up and so there is lot of motivation and when my turn comes I grab it with both hands. I have been training more than I used to do earlier,” said Shakib.David Warner has been brilliant and Shakib said they never felt that he was away.”He is a great ambassador for the Sunrisers. It’s not easy to come back after a year and it shows how strong he is mentally. We never felt he was away. Last year, he kept in touch with us and encouraged us throughout,” said Shakib.Also Read | MS Dhoni’s outburst at umpire in RR vs CSK match probably not right: Jos ButtlerAlso Read | MS Dhoni lucky to get away with small fine: Sanjay Manjrekar on IPL 2019 no-ball rowAlso Read | MS Dhoni was fired up by the way no-ball decision was handled, says Fleminglast_img read more

The film stars Farhan Akhtar in the lead role of a boxer, while Rawal has been cast to play Farhan’s coach.While Farhan has been preparing for his role for many months now (his Instagram posts are proof of that), reports say that Paresh has also joined Farhan on his training session a month ago.

He took to Instagram to share the video and wrote, “It’s not just about strength but speed as well #ToofanInTheMaking @drewnealpt @samir_jaura @rakeyshommehra @ritesh_sid.”advertisementOn the other hand, Paresh Rawal in his last film Uti: The Surgical Strike, played the role of Govind Bhardwaj, a character based on India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Talking about Doval, in an interview with a news channel, Paresh Rawal said, “I had met NSA saab two-three times at corridors in Parliament before doing the film. Who doesn’t know him. Every Indian knows him. He is the true hero of ours.”With Toofan, Farhan Akhtar is teaming up with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra six years after their superhit film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

They are allowed to prepare in the way they can, it’s part of the rules but it is a risk of getting sent off.”My worry is one of those tackles could mean we lose the opportunity to enjoy a player of the quality of Eden Hazard.

There are no easy games,” Martinez said. “In the first half we started well for 10 to 15 minutes but they defended well with their defensive structure and we became a little frustrated in some situations where we would normally find an extra pass.Romelu Lukaku Belgium Panama World Cup 2018“We got a little anxious but I was delighted with how we reacted in those moments. You have to defend well and we saw that as a team. For me, that was pleasing at half-time, everyone was committed to keep a clean sheet. In the second half, it was down to finding some composure in front of goal.”That first goal was going to be essential, in some games it is a mental blow for one team and gives you breathing space. From that point we were more ourselves, more in control and kept a very good clean sheet.”We saw Thibaut Courtois make two good saves in one-on-one situations. For me, as a coach, we could not be prouder of our team. Everyone showed they are ready to help.”We didn’t want to win it in the first five minutes, in the World Cup we understand that we need to play for 90 minutes. We need to be very aware in every game that if you don’t score you must be prepared to work hard and to go through periods where the opposition test you.”It was a moment to show maturity, togetherness and composure, we know we have individual talent and they give us the moments we saw, but as a team we need to be able to react in a way that allows you to make a clean sheet.”I don’t want to take credit from Panama, they gave an incredible amount of effort and it was difficult to maintain it for longer than 60 minutes, but they deserve real credit for what they did in the first half.

YukonNevada Gold Corp making good progress at Jerritt Canyon Nevada

first_imgYukon-Nevada Gold presents an overview of the work completed at Jerritt Canyon since the facility reopened in 2009. Jerritt Canyon is located 80 km north of Elko, Nevada and is operated by Queenstake Resources USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the company. This review covers the areas of:Environmental ComplianceNew Tailings Facility ConstructionPlant UpgradesPlant WinterisationFleet RenewalUnderground Mine Re-startOpen Pit Re-startExplorationSafety.Environmental compliance was achieved by the issuance of a Consent Decree in the autumn of 2009 allowing the Company to restart its milling operation. Since re-starting the plant in October 2009 the roasters have successfully been subject to independent engineer stack testing for emission compliance for mercury, particulates, sulphur dioxide and other emissions. The results of these tests have allowed the frequency of the testing to be reduced by a factor of three.  Other items in the Consent Decree are also substantially complete, with two key projects, the replacement of the second quench tank and the installation of the new ore dryer circuit, set to be finished in the shutdown commencing early January.  The remaining project to complete is the clean-up of the rock drainage areas on the property, which will be performed over the coming year in compliance with the requirements of the Consent Decree.A new tailings storage facility was approved for construction in July 2011. This facility, which is double lined, is mostly completed and waits commissioning in 2012. The old TSF, which has more than sufficient life to last until the new facility is operating, will be closed and reclaimed using the bonded monies already in place.Plant upgrades including a new digital control system will and are allowing for better and more continuous operation of the plant. This has been enhanced by restocking of the parts warehouse. Plant winterisation has been delayed by fabrication difficulties, but is now on track for completion before the end of January.In parallel, the company re-started the Smith underground mine and engaged Small Mine Development (SMD) to operate the mine in February 2010.  SMD has been achieving a steady 1,000 t/d delivery to the run of mine stockpile.  In October 2011 the company re-started the SSX underground mine which is scheduled to ramp up to 1,200 t/d from the current level of 300 t/d, as more equipment becomes available and additional resources are put in place. The company has also obtained permitting to develop the Starvation Canyon underground mine which is scheduled to be ready in H2 2012 as infrastructure is put in place and equipment delivered.  Starvation Canyon will be capable of delivering up to 600 t/d of ore.  This will complete the underground mine development program producing a targeted 2,800 t/d of ore to the mill.The company is also focused on the recommencement of open pit mining at the property which was shut down in the late 1990s due to the prevailing price of gold. Permit approvals to re-open previously operated pits as well as new pits are being sought. This would address the ability of the milling facility to operate at tonnages greater than those able to be supplied by the underground mines.Upon completion of the shutdown in mid-January, the plant is scheduled to re-start at a through put rate of 150,000 oz/y and ramp up from there. Jerritt Canyon has averaged 300,000 oz/y historically from 1987 until early 2003 when it went into decline due to insufficient working capital for investing in sustaining operations, preventative maintenance and necessary environmental compliance.President and CEO, Robert Baldock states, “There is every reason for the facility to operate at similar production levels in the future and that is certainly management’s goal.”Underground exploration was initiated soon after the Smith mine was reopened, exploration on the surface was reinitiated in the summer of 2011 and is planned to continue for the foreseeable future. Extension of the present underground mines, re-opening of previously operated open pits and targeting of new open pits are part of the extensive exploration program.  The company is currently reviewing the results of drilling activity in 2011 and will provide additional updates on these results when the review is complete.Yukon-Nevada is committed to the safety of its workforce and will take all measures to ensure the continued safe and productive operations at Jerritt Canyon. To that end a recent meeting between management and Mine Safety and Health Administration has made it clear recent changes combined with a good inspection in February will make a significant difference to the way the company is viewed by the regulators as referenced in a press release dated December 2, 2011.Yukon-Nevada Gold holds a diverse portfolio of gold, silver, zinc and copper properties in the Yukon Territory and British Columbia in Canada and in Nevada in the USA. Its focus has been on the acquisition and development of late stage development and operating properties with gold as the primary target. Continued growth will occur by increasing or initiating production from the company’s existing properties.last_img read more

The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography conducted the study.The Coronary Computed Tomographic Angiography for Systematic Triage of Acute Chest Pain Patients to Treatment (CT-STAT) multi-center trial suggests CCTA is faster, more accurate and less costly than MPI.The study, led by James A. Goldstein, M.D., and Gilbert L. Raff, M.D., of William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Mich., ran between June 2007 and November 2008. Low-risk patients were randomized to treatment via CCTA or MPI, and followed up over a period of six months.The two treatments were analyzed primarily over the time taken to diagnose, and also compared over safety (no major adverse cardiac events in patients with normal index tests), and the cost of care to the emergency department.The results found CCTA patients were diagnosed 54 percent faster than MPI patients, and the total costs of care were 38 percent lower with the CCTA group. This is significant, given that the cost of each MPI test itself was only slightly greater than the cost for each CCTA test. Major adverse cardiac events were no different for each diagnostic strategy. The CCTA patients were also exposed to less radiation than the MPI patients (11.5 mSv vs 12.8 mSv, p=0.02).About 8 million patients in the United States require emergency department evaluation for acute chest pain annually. Currently, extensive testing is required to diagnose or rule out a heart attack in low risk patients without obvious signs. These trial results should have a huge impact in regards to selecting CCTA as a method that is both more efficient and cost-beneficial.For more information: www.scct.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
