Serena Williams Survives Tough Wimbledon Challenge

Serena Williams beats Zheng Jie, makes last 16Serena Williams’ power game was on point against 5-foot-4 1/2 Zheng Jie, but still struggled to defeat her diminutive foe in the third round of Wimbledon today.Williams boomed 23 aces and held every service game, yet Zheng, made the four-time champion at All England Club earn her 6-7 (5), 6-2, 9-7 victory.Zheng was brilliant. She only had one ace, but only had 17 unforced errors and from the baseline she fashioned solid strokes in a beautiful, consistent effort.But Williams erased all six break points she faced, served three times to stay in the match and held each time at love. She was pushed to deuce serving in the final game but closed out the victory with a volley winner, then hopped in glee — and relief — on the Centre Court grass.Williams rocketed a return to break for an 8-7 lead in the final set, then showed how much she wanted to win, throwing back her head and letting out a long scream. She has been stalled at 13 Grand Slam titles since winning Wimbledon for the fourth time in 2010, and dealt with a series of health issues in 2010-11.In the final set, Williams overcame a love-40 deficit to hold for 2-all. Two games later, when she bounced a kick second serve over her opponent’s head for an ace, Zheng managed a laugh. Later in the set Williams won 14 consecutive service points, including three aces in one game to reach 7-all. She held 18 times and lost only 18 of 98 service points.On Monday, Williams will face Yarsolave Shvedova of Kazakhstan, who won all 24 points in the first set — a so-called “golden set” — and beat French Open runner-up Sara Errani 6-0, 6-4. It’s the first known golden set by a woman in the Open era, the International Tennis Federation said, and the BBC showed a highlight package of all 24 points. read more

Bale expected Denmark resolution

first_imgGareth Bale has revealed his lack of surprise towards the resolution achieved by the Danish Football Association and its players ahead of their UEFA Nations League clash on Sunday.A team consisting of only futsal and amateur players lost 3-0 in a friendly to Slovakia on Wednesday after the main team decided against playing due to an issue over image rights, but the Danish FA has now confirmed an agreement has been reached with the country’s main players.Wales will, therefore, take on Denmark’s strongest side in Sunday’s Nations League clash, Bale having scored for Ryan Giggs’ men in a 4-1 demolition of the Republic of Ireland in their opening game in the competition on Thursday.And the Real Madrid attacker, who has hit four goals in his last four games for club and country, is not surprised by the news the DBU has temporarily resolved the issue.“We never thought it would be any different,” Bale told Sky Sports, as quoted by SportsKeeda.Players who made it public that they weren’t happy in their club Jozef Fabian – September 12, 2019 Football is about so much more than what happens on the pitch.“The friendly is different but for the qualifier, we knew it’d be a strong team and we will be ready for the game on Sunday.”Giggs’ first competitive game in charge of Wales saw Tom Lawrence, Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts all on target as well as Bale.“We had to put a good performance in for the new manager, first home game of a new regime, show what we’re capable of and make a statement,” Bale said.“We’ve been working hard since the new manager came in, he wants to stamp his own style on us with attacking football and we want to express ourselves.“There was lots to improve but lots to enjoy and admire, we hope the fans enjoyed it.”last_img read more

Tracing histories

first_imgWhat is National Museum? And when, why and how are such museums made? Today, almost every country we visit has a museum and a gallery that it calls ‘National.’ Within these institutions, we are able to trace a history of the nation through art. National museums are so widely present that it might come as a surprise to learn how recently they took this form.This, to a stream of thought, suggests a close relationship between political sovereignty and national self-representation in the cultural sphere. So what all could they be? To answer all the question that rises in your mind about this curious hyperlink, National Museum, Delhi,  is organising the 17th NM lecture this Friday evening. Renowned art historian, Kavita Singh of Jawaharlal Nehru University will be delivering a lecture on this subject.
