Wimbledon 2017: Garbine Muguruza beats Venus Williams to lift maiden title

first_imgGarbine Muguruza already knew what it’s like to lose to a Williams in the Wimbledon final. Now she knows how it feels to beat one for a championship at the All England Club.Muguruza powered her way to her first title at Wimbledon and second at a Grand Slam tournament Saturday, beating a fading Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 by claiming the final’s last nine games.At 37, Williams was bidding for her sixth championship at the grass-court major, 17 years after her first. And she was so close to gaining the upper hand against Muguruza, holding two set points at 5-4 in the opener. But Muguruza fought those off and did not drop a game the rest of the way.In 2015, in her first Grand Slam final, Muguruza lost to Williams’ younger sister, Serena, whom the Spaniard then defeated in the French Open title match last year.This time, with the Centre Court roof closed because of rain earlier in the day, the 23-year-old Muguruza was too good down the stretch.Williams twice was a point away from winning the opening set, ahead 5-4 while Muguruza served at 15-40. On the first set point, a 20-stroke exchange ended when Williams blinked first, putting a forehand into the net. On the second, Williams sent a return long, and Muguruza pumped her fist.It was as if getting out of that jam freed up Muguruza — and failing to capitalize on the opportunity deflated Williams. That began the match-closing nine-game run for Muguruza.Williams began faltering, spraying her shots to unintended spots — long, wide, into the net — while the younger, less-experienced Muguruza stayed steady, pounding groundstrokes with all her force. Williams finished with 25 unforced errors, 14 more than Muguruza made.advertisementIt was an anticlimactic conclusion for Williams, who was the oldest Wimbledon finalist since 1994. Diagnosed in 2011 with Sjogren’s syndrome, an energy-sapping autoimmune disease, she learned to deal with that condition by turning to a plant-based diet and altering other routines. It took a while for her to get back to her best tennis.Her resurgence began in earnest at Wimbledon a year ago, when she made it to the semifinals. Then, at the Australian Open in January, Williams reached the final, where she lost to her sister.Serena is off the tour for the rest of this year because she is pregnant, and Venus spoke this week about missing her and wanting to put “Williams” on a trophy once again.She came close to achieving that, but Muguruza would not allow it.The moment @GarbiMuguruza won #Wimbledon… pic.twitter.com/u2gg7xv55Z- Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 15, 2017Espaa celebra ????Spain has a second #Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles Champion… pic.twitter.com/xLCGIlI40y- Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 15, 2017Fun with a new friend…#Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/hSS6b2cWXH- Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 15, 2017last_img read more

Iker Casillas released from hospital after heart attack

first_imgPorto goalkeeper Iker Casillas was released from the hospital on Monday after suffering a heart attack in training last week.The Spaniard, 37, thanked medics at the hospital in Porto, Portugal, as well as the thousands of people who wished him well.”I have to be grateful because I had a lot of luck,” Casillas told reporters. “I want to say thanks to many people, they made me feel loved.”Casillas, who played 725 times for Real Madrid, winning three Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles, as well as the World Cup with Spain in 2010, joined Porto in 2015.The goalkeeper is not sure if he will continue his playing career.”I will have to wait a couple of weeks or a couple of months, the truth is I don’t care (how long),” added Casillas.Also Read | Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino ruled out of Barcelona gamelast_img read more

Didn’t want to feel the pain and regret of losing another final: Jos Buttler

first_imgThe dust has finally settled around the Cricket World Cup 2019 with hosts England deservedly crowned world champions but not before they played out one of the most dramatic cricket matches in the history of the sport.There was nothing to separate England and New Zealand in the summit clash till 102 overs of the game with both teams ending up on the same score twice – in the final and in the Super Over.Eventually it all came down to the number of boundaries hit by both teams which decided the winner as England lifted their maiden 50-over World Cup trophy at the home of cricket, the Lord’s cricket ground.Vice-captain Jos Buttler was one of the key protagonists in that epic final in which he scored 59 runs and along with player-of-the-match Ben Stokes, guided his team to the finish line with a 110-run partnership for the fifth wicket.Buttler’s services were once again required in the Super Over as he came out to bat with Stokes with the duo scoring 15 runs. New Zealand matched that total but lost the game on boundary count, according to the new rules of the game.Describing his emotions before the final, Buttler said there were negative thoughts creeping into his mind as he had played eight finals before the World Cup and had lost seven of them while playing for England and his domestic county side Somerset.”I had played in eight finals before Sunday (July 14) and lost seven of them. I’d played in lots with Somerset, the Champions Trophy with England [in 2013] and when we lost the [World] T20 [final] in Kolkata [in 2016] and I knew how much it hurt watching the other team lift the trophy. I didn’t want to feel that pain and that regret again.advertisement”What was scaring me was if we lost, I didn’t know how I’d play cricket again. This was such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, a World Cup final at Lord’s. It felt like destiny and I was thinking: ‘If it doesn’t happen, I will have no motivation to pick up a cricket bat for a very long time.'”I knew all I could look after was the stuff I could look after, and I needed to get into my zone, which allows me to perform the best I can. But what happens if it goes wrong?” Buttler told The Daily Mail.Even during the league stage there came a time when pre-tournament favourites England were on the brink of getting knocked out after they lost against Sri Lanka and Australia with Pakistan breathing down their necks.The weight of expectations of the whole nation was on their shoulders with fans chanting “it’s coming home” all around the country even before the tournament began.England somehow managed to scrape through the league phase and ended up grabbing the third position in the knockouts. They defeated arch-rivals Australia to book their spot in the final and the rest was history.”Before the India game, I was struggling with coming to terms with the prospect of us getting knocked out. We’d been favourites, so highly fancied by everyone, and there was the danger that four years of playing such good cricket was going to come to nothing.”Think about what people will say about us as a team, think about how they will call us chokers, everything else they will say. I remember seeing a comment, maybe it was the one that got Jonny Bairstow wound up, about how it would be the biggest failure because of how much had gone into this World Cup. I was struggling with the thought of that,” Buttler explained.Also Read | Knighthood for Ben Stokes? ‘Of course’ say UK’s next prime ministerial candidatesAlso Read | As the dust settles on epic World Cup final, spare a thought for the winnersAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Went to default mode during NZ’s Super Over, says Jos Buttlerlast_img read more

Godin: Suarez was treated like a dog

first_imgUruguay ‘Suarez was treated like a dog’ – Godin still frustrated by ‘unjust’ biting ban for Barcelona star Chris Burton 17:29 6/15/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(4) Luis Suarez Giorgio Chiellini 2014 World Cup Getty Uruguay Luis Suárez Egypt v Uruguay Egypt World Cup Uruguay’s experienced defender feels his international team-mate was unfairly punished following an infamous tussle with Giorgio Chiellini in 2014 Luis Suarez’s ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup still rankles with his Uruguay team-mates, as Diego Godin says the “unjust” punishment saw the Barcelona striker “kicked out like a dog”.FIFA suspended the fiery frontman for nine international games and from all football activity for four months following his infamous coming together with an Italian defender during a group stage game.Suarez was able to secure a big-money transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona while stuck on the sidelines, but his World Cup was prematurely brought to a close and he missed out on the 2015 Copa America. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Godin believes authorities came down too hard on the 31-year-old, despite his previous misdemeanours, with Uruguay’s collective dreams dashed as they went on to lose 2-0 to South American rivals Colombia in the last 16.The Atletico Madrid defender told The Guardian: “I’m convinced that if what happened against Italy hadn’t happened it would have been a different story.”First, we lost our best player. Second, everything that happened affected us: it affected Luis and the rest of us. It was very hard to live through that, to see him dead, crying, fallen, kicked out of the World Cup.”The whole country was sunk, indignant – and that was all we talked about until the Colombia game.”Godin added on the Suarez incident which led to him being removed from the Uruguay camp: “I’m not going to say he didn’t make a mistake – he’s admitted that himself – but I still feel the same as most Uruguayans, most people in football who look at it objectively. It was very, very, very unjust.”For an ‘assault’ you get maybe four games. They took him out the World Cup, kicked him out like a dog. He wasn’t allowed at the Copa América. It was disproportionate, unjust, and no one will take that indignation from us.”While Suarez has made unfortunate headlines on a regular basis throughout his career, Godin believes that it is his enigmatic personality on the field which has carried the prolific goalscorer to the very top of the game.He added: “Luis has got where he is because of the way he is: you see he gets angry, wound up, he fights, protests, competes.“If he wasn’t like that, he wouldn’t be the player he is.” Suarez will be back on a World Cup stage on Friday when Uruguay open their Russia 2018 campaign against an Egypt side still hoping to have Mohamed Salah within their starting XI.last_img read more

Heaton kept a clean sheet as his team notched a 2-0 win at home.”I never wanted to leave the football club, it’s just the fact that I wasn’t playing that I would have had to,” said the goalkeeper after the game.”But after being back playing today it’s the last thing on my mind to be honest.”At 32 I don’t really have much time to waste. Not for one minute did I want to go anywhere but sometimes it has got to be looked at.”That probably changes now.

Early church found place for female bishops experts claim

first_imgHelen Bond & Joan Taylor in Jerusalem in the Church of the Holy SepulchreCredit:Channel 4 Rev Dr Ian Paul, a New Testament scholar and member of the Archbishops’ Council of the Church of England, said it is “relatively unlikely” there were women bishops in the 5th century as there was is no documentary evidence.He said: “The image of Cerula is significant for several reasons—the Chi-Ro symbol above her head, the open gospels with flames, and the oranspose in which she is ‘lifting holy hands in prayer’.“We find similar things from the third-century Catacombs of Priscilla in Rome—but there the female figure is also wearing a stole, the garb of priestly office. Cerula does not have this, so though clearly a person of influence, it seems to me unlikely that she is a priest or bishop, and we have no written evidence of women having such an office at this time.“For Roman Catholics, patristic practice will be important since the tradition is seen as authoritative for the contemporary church. For myself as a Protestant (and former Roman Catholic), what is more important is what the New Testament says, since that shapes what is means to be an ‘apostolic’ church.”In Romans 16.7, St Paul mentions a couple Andronicus and Julia, who are ‘outstanding amongst the apostles’, so Paul appears to have no problem with women exercising church-planting, teaching apostolic ministry. Looking at evidence of Jesus’s female disciplesCredit:Channel 4 In the catacomb, Naples Looking at evidence of Jesus's female disciples Helen Bond & Joan Taylor in St Peter’s SquareCredit:Channel 4 When the first woman bishop, the Right Reverend Libby Lane, was consecrated in 2015, it was hailed a “completely new phase” in the Church of England’s history.The legislation followed decades of argument over women’s ordination and remains controversial.But academics now claim that a fresco unearthed in an Italian catacomb proves that women were acting as bishops in the early Christian church.The 5th century image of a woman named Cerula, found in the catacomb of San Gennaro, Naples, shows her surrounded by open, flaming Gospel books, which are thought to be symbolic of the role of a bishop.Academics said the discovery was “incredibly significant” evidence that women held senior roles in the early Christian church and could mean that millions will have to rethink the origins of their faith.The revelations are made in a programme, due to be aired on Channel 4 next weekend, which also suggests that Jesus had many more female disciples than was previously thought.

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Bible experts Helen Bond and Joan Taylor visited the catacomb in Naples, where, in the early 3rd century, the Christians began to bury their dead and pave the walls with frescos.The wall paintings, hidden for 1,000 years, were rediscovered in 1971 and recently restored. Cerula was painted in the late 5th or early 6th century and is depicted in the praying position, hands raised, with the “chi-rho” symbol of Christ over her head.Crucially, she is surrounded by open volumes of all four gospels, suggesting that she had real influence and responsibility.Dr Ally Kateusz, an expert in early Christian art, told the programme: “That’s really extraordinary, because bishops were associated with the gospels.“Bishops, and bishops only, had open gospel books placed over their heads during their ordination ritual. “The flames of the holy spirit would come out of the gospels and inspire the bishops in their preaching.” Dr Luca Badini, directo r of research at the Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research, said nothing similar had been discovered before.“It was known that women bishops were preaching at that time but very little evidence exists of it,” he told the Sunday Telegraph.“There are still some people who argue on the basis of tradition, stating that they can’t allow women to minister because it’s never been done before, but of course, that’s not true.”Ms Bond noted that the fresco had been created relatively late in the period but said: “These women bishops didn’t just turn up out of nowhere, there is a back story that will date back to the earliest followers of Jesus.”She added: “Any appeal to historic precedent that says Jesus did not choose women is clearly wrong.”She said it was local churches that stopped women preaching, decisions that were gradually adopted more widely. “But we see with this text the same tension between early practice and later tradition. For a long time, the female name Junia was changed to the male ‘Junias,’ to hide the possibility of women as apostles—despite the complete lack of textual evidence, or the existence of the male name Junias in any other context.“Elsewhere in Paul’s writings, he appears to treat women and men equally as proclaimers of the apostolic gospel—just as Mary was the first announce the resurrection of Jesus to the Twelve on Easter morning—something that supports the idea of women exercising ministerial authority in the church today.”Dr Badini highlighted a second fresco in the same location of a woman bishop called Bitalia, which was not preserved quite so well but featured similar symbols.He said the timing of their creation was significant as they preceded a letter written by Pope Gelasius to southern Italian bishops in the late 5th century to complain that women were ministering at holy altars.At some point thereafter, the pope’s demands for such women to stop their work were obeyed, the programme claims, and women’s senior roles were scrapped.last_img read more

Hemant Nimbalkar the IPS officer who gave clean chit to IMA is

first_imgHemant M NimbalkarTwitterHemant M Nimbalkar, the Inspector General (IG) of Bengaluru Police, has been transferred as the new chief of Bengaluru’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). The recent developments came after Nimbalkar gave a clean chit to the IMA Group.”Sri Hemant M Nimbalkar, IPS (KN:1998) Inspector General of Police, Criminal Investigation Department & Economic Offences, Bengaluru is transferred with immediate effect and posted until further orders as Inspector General of Police, Anti-Corruption Bureau, Bengaluru vice Sri M Chandra Sekhar, IPS transferred,” a press release said. An IPS officer from Karnataka, Nimbalkar is accused of giving a clean chit to the IMA headed by Mohammed Mansoor Khan, despite the Reserve Bank of India issuing a notice to the firm and ordering an investigation over its dealings.The transfer of Nimbalkar as the ACB chief at a time when the Special Investigation Team (SIT) is probing the Ponzi scam has raised several concerns. IMA had defrauded nearly 40,000 investors in the name of ‘Halal investments’.After the RBI issued a notice against the functioning of IMA, the state police had directed the CID to investigate the matter and file a report. Nimbalkar was at the officer heading the probe.IMA, which was being run under the limited liabilities partnership model (LLP), was found guilty of illegally collecting money from the public, diverting the funds to its directors and defaulting on repayments. The government has directed to seize all movable and immovable properties of IMA under the Karnataka Protection of Interest of Depositors in Financial Establishment (KPID) Act, 2004.The SIT sleuths have also arrested high profile officers, including Bengaluru Urban Deputy Commissioner BM Vijayashankar and North Division ACP for Revenue LC Nagaraj. They were accused of taking crores of rupees as bribe from IMA chief Khan and issuing a no-objection certificate (NOC) for raising a loan of Rs 600 crore as a bailout plan.Former Karnataka minister BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan and recently resigned Congress MLA R Roshan Baig from Shivajinagar were also summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) over their dealings with the IMA.last_img read more

Katrina Kaif If Salman wants to work with girls who look like

first_imgSalman Khan, Katrina Kaif on The Kapil Sharma ShowTwitterKatrina Kaif and Salman Khan are not only an iconic screen pair but also one of the most genuine friends Bollywood has seen. From having each-others back to standing behind each-other; their friendship has won the test of time. In an old interview with Nikhil Taneja, Katrina had spilt the beans on their friendship and equation.On being asked whether she is responsible for Salman Khan having mellowed down, Katrina had said, “I don’t think so. If he has mellowed down, that’s wonderful. On occasion, the media can be aggressive and write something hurtful. But at the end of the day, there’s no need to be upset. I’m glad that he’s more comfortable with the media…because I think no one is against him.”Answering whether their off-screen chemistry is the reason behind onscreen one, Kaif had said that since they both have known each other for long, there has been an equation. She also revealed that Salman requires a lot of leeway, space and understanding and she does exactly that while working together.After parting ways with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan had brought on-board Sneha Ullal who resembled Aishwarya in his film Lucky. Once Katrina and Salman Khan headed their own way, he had brought on-board Zareen Khan for his film Veer. Zareen too, resembled Katrina a lot.On being asked her reaction on the same, Katrina had said, “Isn’t that flattering? I think that’s so sweet. I even helped her with her make-up during her screen test. She’s a lovely girl and I hope she does very well. Though I don’t think she looks like me. But if Salman misses me and wants to work with girls who look like me, that’s so sweet.”In an interview, talking about her exes, Katrina had said, “Whoever it is (no names taken), I don’t see the point of holding on to anything unpleasant from the past. I would rather let bygones be bygones. I don’t think anyone is out there to hurt me. People are trying to do the best for you. But, sometimes, in trying to do the best for you, you get hurt. Too bad. However, I would rather have a friend than an enemy.”Though Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have now parted ways, the duo continues to share a warm equation and have proved themselves as a bankable jodi onscreen. We hope this friendship continues.last_img read more

Trumps Immigration Plan Could Impact Diversity In Texas

first_img Share Elizabeth Trovall/Houston Public MediaA United States Citizenship and Immigration Services form for attaining a green card, which allows immigrants to legally work.The Trump administration’s plan to limit family migration and attract more high-skilled workers, could affect the diversity of immigrants coming to Texas.The president’s plan favors higher-wage, young, educated and skilled workers.That would change the racial makeup of who gets to come here legally, according to Migration Policy Institute data. Of the 420,000 recent visa-holders in Texas, more than half have annual incomes below 250% of the federal poverty line. That’s a yearly income of $40,600 for a family of two. People making less than that are more likely to be from Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean or Africa.The majority of visa-holders from Europe, Asia, Australia and Canada have incomes higher than 250% of the federal poverty line, so they would be more likely to benefit from Trump’s proposal.Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative attorney Andrea Guttin said it’s not just wealthy immigrants that contribute to the economy.“Family-based migration has a positive impact on business development and community improvement. In Houston, immigrants are 53% more likely to start businesses than their American-born counterparts,” she said. “As a nation, we should embrace diversity, not run from it,” said Cristina Tzintzún Ramírez, executive director of Jolt Action, a progressive Latino advocacy group. Congress would need to approve the president’s plan in order for it to become law, which Democrats are unlikely to support. last_img read more
