This is the reality; she has to be there because EJ’s not here. That’s my motivational thought for her.”Reyes also insisted that it’s only Laure’s injury that kept her from the team’s lineup, and not because of speculations that the fourth-year hitter is sitting this season out so she can play with younger her sister Eya in Season 81 .“When we talked around Christmas time, EJ told me that it was a chronic shoulder injury, so that’s where we’re at right now,” said Reyes.ADVERTISEMENT Chung’s stunning run continues into Australian Open semis View commentslast_img read more

It’s normal to have protected ranking. … It’s more than tennis,” top-ranked Simona Halep said. “So the people will decide what seed she will get. But in my opinion it’s good to protect the ranking when someone is giving birth.”Williams returned to the tour briefly this year, after a 14-month absence to give birth to her daughter. She was not seeded at tournaments in Indian Wells, California, and Miami, and compiled two wins and two losses.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Williams has recounted the difficulties she faced in childbirth and a pulmonary embolism that made it hard for her to breathe shortly after her daughter was born. But after a period of training, coach Patrick Mouratoglou last week told the WTA tour’s website “Serena will play the French Open to win it.”Current rules covering maternity leave and injuries allow a protected or “special” ranking to be utilized for entry into tournaments but not for seeding purposes regardless of the reason for a player’s absence.However, this past year the WTA adjusted the rule so that absences for maternity leave are treated the same as those for injury and illness by providing all players a two-year window to begin using a special ranking, plus an additional year from the date of return to utilize the special ranking.“Historically, WTA players have not been supportive of the use of special rankings for seeding purposes,” the WTA said in a statement to The Associated Press. “The rule is currently under further review as part of our 2019 rules process. We remain committed to evolving with the needs of our players and are very supportive of those players returning from maternity leave to the tour.”Fourth-ranked Elina Svitolina, who defended her Italian Open title on Sunday, was also supportive of seeding Williams.“If you’re like finished or you stopped because you’re going to have a child and you will be in top eight, I think you should have this kind of thing, to have protected seeding,” Svitolina said. “She was No. 1 so she deserves seeding.”William has won the French Open three times — more than any current player — and last year’s Roland Garros champion, Jelena Ostapenko, is looking forward to her return.“She’s someone who the tour was missing — because she’s a great champion,” Ostapenko said. “She was my idol since I was growing up.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img The WTA Tour said it is considering a rule change to add protected seeding for highly-ranked players returning from maternity leave but the earliest that could take effect is next year.“I would like to see that change,” Maria Sharapova said. “It’s such an incredible effort for a woman to come back from physically, emotionally. … There’s just another whole dimension to the travel, to the experiences, to the emotions to the physicality of every single day.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“Tennis is such a selfish sport but I think when there’s a child in your life you lose a little bit of that, because there’s something that’s so much more important,” added Sharapova, who has lost three Grand Slam finals to Williams. “So yeah, I definitely think that would be a nice change.”The French Open draw will be made Thursday, with the tournament starting on Sunday.

  • GCB mourns the passing of “Rocky” Mann

    first_imgNot only the fraternity, but the entire cricket industry has lost a true cricket stalwart in Ronald Paul Mann, popularly known as “Rocky” Mann; who took ill quite a few years ago, and quietly passed away at his home in Mc Doom, Greater Georgetown yesterday.“Rocky” served very proficiently as the Marketing Manager of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) during the halcyon days of the 1990s under the Presidency of Chetram Singh.Those days cricket was still headquartered at the GCC ground, Bourda, and there was never any thought of a World Cup being held here in Guyana.Rocky was very instrumental in the acquisition of sponsorships from all the major commercial banks, beverage companies and the general corporate community for the construction of Hospitality Boxes, which still house the GCB’s Office and the Media Stand, which still stand tall at the northern and southern sides of the Bourda square.Rocky also served as the Marketing Manager of the East Bank Demerara Cricket Association during the late 90s, when a successful raffle was held with a car being given away as the first prize.Rocky had earlier served the cricket community as a radio commentator doing ball by ball commentary of many of our regional cricket matches.Mann always had his heart well placed in assisting our cricketers, and was a great cricket administrator.The entire cricket community will, like this publication, join the GCB in extending its sincerest condolences to his wife, Zel Mann; his children Jason & Alyeah, and the rest of his family and relatives at this time of bereavement.last_img read more

  • Arnold ‘Pimp’ daddy of bio-fuel

    first_img“Because the muscle guys, they have this thing: `I don’t want to be seen in the little feminine car.”‘ The show will also highlight Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys. Its owners, the Boeckmann family, are generous political donors who have given more than $150,000 to Schwarzenegger and his causes. As an actor, Schwarzenegger helped popularize the uber-macho, gas-swilling Hummer. These days, the governor doesn’t drive much; the California Highway Patrol ferries him around. But Schwarzenegger still takes the occasional spin in a Hummer. Of his four, one’s hydrogen-fueled. Another runs on bio-diesel; it smells like French fries, the governor jokes. Schwarzenegger will take his green show on the road later this week, speaking in Washington and New York. Come September, the governor will try his hand at pimping the Tories. The governor will speak on environmental themes at the annual conference of Britain’s Conservative Party. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is hooking up with the MTV reality show “Pimp My Ride” for a special Earth Day episode that he hopes will boost the street cred of low-emission cars. Typically, the program features everyday people who have their trashed rides tricked out into bling-mobiles with built-in espresso machines or lava lamps. But for this episode, the crew will transform a 1965 Chevy Impala into a clean, green bio-diesel machine. Efforts to reduce global warming and build a hydrogen highway helped parlay Schwarzenegger to an easy re-election last fall. But putt down the 405 Freeway in a Prius? That’s not how the gov rolls. The April 22 episode of “Pimp My Ride” will show that “bio-fuel is not like some wimpy, feminine car, like a hybrid,” Schwarzenegger said in the current Newsweek cover article. last_img

  • African players in Europe: Salah helps Liverpool back to top

    first_imgThe victory lifted Liverpool to 79 points, two more than defending champions Manchester City, who have a game in hand.ENGLANDMOHAMED SALAH (Liverpool)He came to Liverpool’s rescue with a crucial contribution to the last-gasp goal that sealed a 2-1 win over Tottenham.With just seconds left at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s side were being held to a draw that would have left them behind Premier League leaders Manchester City on goal difference.But Salah met Trent Alexander-Arnold’s deep cross with a far-post header that was fumbled by Tottenham goalkeeper Lloris.The loose ball bounced onto Alderweireld and rebounded into the net for an own goal that sent Liverpool top as they chase a first English title since 1990.WILFRIED ZAHA (Crystal Palace)Zaha failed to play for Ivory Coast while he was on international duty and the 26-year-old was a doubt for the game with Huddersfield due to concerns over a hamstring problem.How Huddersfield must have wished he had not taken the field, as he tormented their defence.His marauding runs mesmerised the Terriers’ back four and eventually something had to give, with Juninho Bacuna bringing him to ground and conceding a second-half penalty.Luka Milivojevic tucked it away and the Eagles were on their way to an invaluable 2-0 win that boosted their survival bid and condemned Huddersfield to relegation.YVES BISSOUMA (Brighton)The Seagulls are in danger of having their Premier League wings clipped and will need players such as Bissouma to up their game if they are to dodge relegation. The 22-year-old Ivory Coast-born Mali midfielder was at fault for the only goal in Brighton’s derby defeat against fellow strugglers Southampton. He lost possession eight minutes into the second half and Saints made the most of it with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg finishing the move.SPAINKARL TOKO EKAMBI (Villarreal)In-form Cameroon striker Toko Ekambi put Villarreal ahead just 11 minutes into a clash at fellow strugglers Celta Vigo, who overcame an early two-goal deficit to triumph 3-2.It was the third goal for Ekambi in two La Liga matches after his brace helped defeat Rayo Vallecano.THOMAS PARTEY (Atletico Madrid)Ghana midfielder Partey netted six minutes from time to complete a 4-0 triumph for second-placed Atletico Madrid at Alaves, who are three spots lower in the table. His goal came from a 20-metre strike into the top corner.ITALYGERVINHO (Parma)Gervinho put Parma ahead after eight minutes at home against Atalanta, with Matteo Scozzarella pouncing on a Mario Pasalic error and allowing the Ivorian to break through to slot in his 10th league goal this season.But Parma, seven points above the drop zone, lost 3-1 to suffer a 14th defeat in 29 games.JEREMIE BOGA/KHOUMA BABACAR (Sassuolo)France-born Ivorian international Boga came on as a substitute and scored his second goal in as many games for Sassuolo, but they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Bologna.Senegalese teammate Babacar’s handball gifted Bologna the opening goal from a penalty in the 68th minute.Boga equalised from a tight angle in the second minute of injury-time, only for Bologna to grab the winner four minutes later.GERMANYLeipzig’s Malian midfielder Amadou Haidara controls the ball during the game against Hertha Berlin © AFP / Ronny HartmannAMADOU HAIDARA (RB Leipzig)The Malian midfielder scored his first Bundesliga goal as Leipzig rampaged to a 5-0 win over Hertha Berlin.Having joined Leipzig from Red Bull Salzburg in January, Haidara has been injured for much of the last few months and made only his second appearance for his new club against Hertha.He crowned it with a goal, popping up to smash home Leipzig’s fifth.ISHAK BELFODIL (Hoffenheim)The Algerian international was the star of the show as Hoffenheim cruised to a 4-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen.The 27-year old found the bottom corner with an elegant finish to give Hoffenheim an early lead. He then had a goal ruled out for offside before smashing in his side’s third in the second half.FRANCEBRICE SAMBA (Caen)Monaco suffered a shock home defeat by Caen, who climbed off the bottom of Ligue 1 thanks to a 1-0 win in which goalkeeper Samba, from Congo Brazzaville, emerged as the hero with a string of excellent saves to help the Normandy side embark on a late bid to avoid relegation.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mohamed Salah celebrates after a late own goal from Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld © AFP / Paul ELLISPARIS, France, Apr 1 – There were no African scorers in the English Premier League at the weekend, but Egyptian Mohamed Salah played a key role in the goal that took Liverpool back to the top.His last-minute header was fumbled by Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and the ball struck defender Toby Alderweireld before rebounding into the net to give the Reds a 2-1 win.last_img read more

  • COPE CALLS ON MINISTER TO PROTECT IRISH MACKEREL FISHERY

Furthermore, I am aware that the Commission are going to individual countries, making side deals on other fish stocks in order to get the Council to agree to their proposal.”Pat the Cope confirmed that “If these figures are accepted, it would possibly result in a reduced share of mackerel quota for Ireland in the long-run. As a result, Iceland and the Faroe Islands would reap larger mackerel quotas than Ireland which is an absolute disgrace.”He added “I am calling on the Minister at tomorrow’s meeting to forcefully challenge EU Fisheries Commissioner Damanaki, as to why she is willing to reward the reckless behaviour of Iceland and the Faroe Islands at the expense of Irish fishermen, who have acted in a responsible way over the last number of years.”Pat the Cope concluded, “While, the new advice by ICES which recommends an increase of 64% of the TAC will give a renewed impetus to efforts to reach a negotiated agreement on the sharing arrangements. “This opportunity must not be at the expense of Irish fishermen, who have acted in a responsible manner by rewarding Iceland and the Faroe Islands with an unjustified percentage share. The Minister must do his utmost to protect the Irish mackerel fishery, as it is worth EUR 125 million per annum to Ireland, and is extremely important to Ireland’s largest fishing port, Killybegs in Donegal.” COPE CALLS ON MINISTER TO PROTECT IRISH MACKEREL FISHERY was last modified: October 16th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Agriculture and Fisheries meetingMACKERELPat The Cop Gallagherlast_img read more
