Serena hints at return, says ‘be excited’

Serena hints at return, says ‘be excited’

first_imgAmerican Serena Williams dropped a large hint that she could soon be back on court competing when she posted an Instagram photo of a pair of dazzling gold and white tennis shoes.Williams, who won her 23rd grand slam singles title at last year’s Australian Open before taking time out to have her first child, has entered next month’s tournament in Melbourne.“Be excited. Be very excited…” the 36-year-old said in the post which attracted 135,000 likes in the space of an hour.Williams gave birth to Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September and was married to Alexis Ohanian last month.Few female players have won grand slams after taking a break to start a family, although Kim Clijsters won the 2009 US Open in her third tournament back after having a daughter.Australians Evonne Goolagong and Margaret Court also managed it. Court’s 24 grand slam singles titles remains a record although only 11 of them were in the professional era.last_img read more

LATEST STORIES Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? “That game was decisive, and I was lucky to win that one. After that, the match changed a lot,” Nadal said. “Losing the first three games was tough but I found a way at the right time. Sometimes these matches help for rhythm because you suffer.”Before going onto court for his quarterfinal, Nadal spent some time watching Djokovic. Even 17-time Grand Slam winner Nadal, who has lost 28 times in 53 contests against the toughest rival of his career, was surprised.“Always, when Novak loses, (it) seems strange because he’s super solid,” Nadal said. “But everybody is human.”Nadal next faces No. 13 Fabio Fognini, who beat No. 9 Borna Coric of Croatia 1-6, 6-3, 6-2.Fognini has lost 11 of 14 matches against Nadal, but two of the Italian’s three wins were on clay. All the wins were in 2015, including a thriller in the third round of the U.S. Open, when Fognini rallied from two sets down.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “He’s able to win against everybody when he’s playing well,” said Nadal, who may need to go up a level.Nadal imperiously won the title last year without conceding more than four games in a set, but Pella caused him considerable problems and forced 13 break-point chances on Nadal’s serve.Although Nadal leveled the first set at 5-5, he dropped his serve again. It gave Pella the chance to become the first player to take a set against him here since Britain’s Kyle Edmund in the second round two years ago.Pella reached 30-30 but Nadal broke back and forced a tiebreaker — his first here since a third-round win against John Isner in 2015.A jittery looking Nadal was broken to love serving for the match. Pella could not hold his serve, either.He saved one match point at 15-40 down but then double-faulted. After 2 hours, 20 minutes on court, a relieved Nadal hugged his opponent at the net.The last time Nadal failed to reach the last four here was in 2014, when he lost to countryman David Ferrer in the last eight.Earlier, Medvedev was appearing in the last eight of a Masters tournament for the first time but Djokovic struggled more in the windy conditions.He double-faulted at 30-30 to give Medvedev his first match point and a backhand winner secured a first win against Djokovic at the fourth attempt.“He played worse than before and I am gaining more experience,” said the 14th-ranked Medvedev, who is chasing a fifth career title. Spain’s Rafael Nadal grimaces as he defeats Argentina’s Guido Pella during their quarterfinal match of the Monte Carlo Tennis Masters tournament in Monaco, Friday, April 19, 2019. (AP Photo/Claude Paris)MONACO— Surprised at seeing rival Novak Djokovic go out of the Monte Carlo Masters after an error-strewn performance, defending champion Rafael Nadal acknowledged he enjoyed some luck in reaching the semifinals on Friday.Quite an admission from the best player in clay-court history, who has won both this tournament and the French Open a record 11 times. But Nadal struggled against fellow left-hander Guido Pella, losing his first three service games to trail 4-1 before recovering to beat the unseeded Argentine 7-6 (1), 6-3.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img ‘Duterte legacy:’ Gov’t boasts achievements so far P260,000 each in aid to displaced Marawi folk released by US Duterte says he will appoint Gamboa as next PNP chief After hot start, Pasig Chooks bows out of 2019 FIBA 3X3 World Masters MOST READ Sarah Geronimo’s ‘Tala’ enters Billboard’s world digital song sales chart The 23-year-old Russian next faces unseeded Dusan Lajovic, who also reached a Masters semifinal for the first time when he beat Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego 6-4, 7-5.One Serb can make Sunday’s final, but it’s Lajovic and not the one people expected.When Djokovic won the Australian Open this year he secured a third straight Grand Slam title and 15th overall, and in doing so he moved two behind Nadal and five adrift of Roger Federer’s record haul of 20.Since then, his form has wilted.Djokovic has failed to reach the last four in three straight tournaments, having fallen short at Indian Wells and Miami.But his focus is bigger and it’s further down the line: taking Nadal’s crown at Roland Garros.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Comelec assures no disruption in operations with retirement of execs View commentslast_img read more

Real Madrid sign Porto full-back Danilo

Real Madrid sign Porto full-back Danilo

first_img0Shares0000MADRID, April 10- European champions Real Madrid have completed the signing of Brazilian international right-back Danilo from Porto on a six-year deal.“Real Madrid and Porto have reached an agreement for the transfer of Danilo, who will join next season and be tied to the club until June 30, 2021,” the club said in a statement on Wednesday. A statement by Porto to the Portuguese stock exchange said the deal was worth 31.5 million euros ($34.2 million, £23 million)The 23-year-old joined Porto from Santos in 2012 and has won two league titles with the Portuguese giants as well as playing a big part in their run to the quarter-final of the Champions League where they will face Bayern Munich next month.Danilo also won a silver medal with Brazil at the 2012 Olympics and has become a regular with his national team since Dunga took charge of the five-time world champions following a disappointing World Cup on home soil last year.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ibra, Mings charged over Old Trafford clash

Ibra, Mings charged over Old Trafford clash

first_imgBoth players would ordinarily face three-game bans, but England’s Football Association said in Mings’s case the standard punishment was “clearly insufficient”.“Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tyrone Mings have both been charged with alleged violent conduct following the Manchester United versus AFC Bournemouth game on Saturday,” the FA said in a statement.“The players were involved in two separate incidents in or around the 44th minute which were not seen by the match officials at the time but caught on video.“Furthermore, the FA has submitted a claim that the standard punishment that would otherwise apply for the misconduct committed by the Bournemouth defender is ‘clearly insufficient’.”The two players have until 1800 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charges.Match referee Kevin Friend spoke to Ibrahimovic, who had already been booked, following his elbow on Mings, but neither player was cautioned.As a result, the incident was referred to a panel of three former elite referees, who unanimously concluded that both offences merited red cards.Ibrahimovic, United’s top scorer with 26 goals, denied deliberately elbowing Mings, saying: “I jump up and jump high and he jumps into my elbow. It is not my intention to hurt someone.”A three-game ban would see Ibrahimovic miss United’s trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals as well as Premier League games with Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion.Mings said he had not intentionally stamped on Ibrahimovic’s head.“I would never do that. That’s not in my game,” he said. “Hard and fair is how I like to tackle, but off-the-ball stuff like that isn’t part of my game.”At the very least, Mings stands to miss league matches against West Ham United, Swansea City and Southampton.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2L) clashes in the air with Bournemouth’s defender Tyrone Mings (L) during the English Premier League football match March 4, 2017London, United Kingdom, Mar 6 – Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings were charged with violent conduct on Monday over two incidents in Saturday’s 1-1 draw.Mings appeared to deliberately stamp on Ibrahimovic’s head as he jumped over him late in the first half at Old Trafford and the Swedish striker seemed to retaliate moments later by elbowing the defender in the head.last_img read more

El Camino College student sexually attacked outside the gym

El Camino College student sexually attacked outside the gym

first_img Detectives will speak to her in the next few days and ask her to meet with a sketch artist. Although the attacker’s face was covered, police hope the artist can extract something from the woman’s memory to create a drawing, Port said. Police officers, meanwhile, increased their presence on campus and spread word of the attack through e-mails to all students and employees. They also posted fliers around campus. Port said police did not want to create hysteria, but detectives needed to scout for witnesses and students had to be cautioned. Police urged students to be aware of their surroundings, walk with friends, keep their keys in their hands while walking to their cars, and remember that they can be distracted by MP3 players and cell phones. Officers encouraged students to learn the location of “code blue” emergency telephones situated around the campus and to use a police shuttle service from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Police suggested that night students and faculty park in busy areas so groups can walk together to their cars after dark. HOW TO HELP Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call campus police at 310-660-3100.

His race was unknown. Port said officers are looking for witnesses, particularly anyone walking through the campus who saw the man in black before he put the ski mask on. “He could have been in some degree of lesser disguise prior to the crime,” Port said. Port, who was formerly chief of police in Hawthorne, spoke to the victim’s father Wednesday. She spent Tuesday night in the hospital but was home the next day. A man dressed in black clothing and a ski mask accosted a 20-year-old student at knifepoint on the El Camino College campus and sexually assaulted her, police said Wednesday. The assailant ran after the Tuesday night attack outside the women’s gym, leaving his victim crying on the ground. Police said she dialed 911 to summon help. A campus public safety officer found her in tears. “The commission of the crime is so savage, we just think this guy is perhaps a habitual offender,” said El Camino College Interim Police Chief Steve Port. The man somehow committed the crime undetected on a 6-foot-wide path on the west side of the gym. The attack occurred at 7 p.m., a busy time on campus, so police believe someone might have seen something that can help investigators, Port said.last_img read more

Enrollment falls short of forecast

Enrollment falls short of forecast

first_imgLancaster School District Superintendent Steve Gocke said students are coming in slower than expected and final numbers won’t be in until the end of the month. “We find a lot of parents have the mind-set that school starts in September,” Gocke said. Lancaster’s year-round schools started classes on July 10, and traditional schools began Aug. 14. Wilsona School District’s enrollment is about 140 students lower than anticipated, Superintendent Ned McNabb said. “Historically, enrollment is lower at the start than forecast. It takes about about a month to get everyone enrolled,” McNabb said. McNabb said that another 100 students would probably enroll by mid-October, resulting in the district being down 40 to 50 students. “We are not sure why. There’s been a very low vacancy rate out here; housing sales are still pretty good. It may be we are just experiencing the average number of children per family is declining in our area,” McNabb said. McNabb said it also could be some parents opted to home-school their children. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Palmdale School District enrollment was down possibly as many as 200 students than what was projected, though still more than last year. “It looks like we are down. It takes a couple of weeks to clean up the data,” Palmdale Deputy Superintendent Lori Ordway-Peck said. “It’s quite a bit of money if it turns out that it’s that kind of number. We would have to definitely adjust the budget.” Ordway-Peck said the 22,000-student district’s enrollment growth has slowed over the last several years but it so far has not translated into declining enrollment. “Palmdale is lucky it hasn’t become a shrinking-enrollment district. We just barely maintained our enrollment this year,” Ordway-Peck said. LANCASTER – More than half of the 1,000 additional students expected this fall to help pack Antelope Valley Union High School District campuses have not materialized, a trend that’s being seen in other Antelope Valley school districts. With about 24,850 students instead of the 25,400 that were projected when budgets were planned, high school officials said they may have to look for ways to cut costs, since much of California public school revenue comes from state aid based on enrollment. Unsure whether the slowdown in enrollment growth is related to signs of a slowdown in home building, officials say they will discuss costs once final enrollment numbers are known in early October. “We are not sure what happened. We are not sure where those students went. One possible explanation is the reduction in construction has caused (construction worker) families to move,” trustee Al Beattie said. “We will have to rearrange the budget to make things balance.” last_img read more
