Dominic Theim demolishes Alexander Zverev to make final

first_imgMELBOURNE: Dominic Thiem won the new-generation battle with Alexander Zverev 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(4) to reach his first Australian Open final on Friday and set up the ultimate test against Melbourne Park maestro Novak Djokovic.In an enthralling semi-final featuring a rain interruption, a lighting failure and a plenty of drama besides, the fifth seeded Austrian shrugged off a sluggish start and was braver on the big points under the roof at Rod Laver Arena.He thrashed two blazing forehand winners to raise three match points in the decisive tiebreak, then sealed it with a cross-court volley to book his third Grand Slam final after losing the last two French Open deciders to Rafa Nadal.“Both of us could have won this today,” Thiem, who dumped Nadal from the quarter-finals, said on court.“Maybe (I have) a little bit of experience, little bit of something else. He’s just 22, maybe not long before he makes it to his first Grand Slam final.“It was an unreal match, again two tiebreaks, so tough and so close. It was almost impossible to break him.”With the men’s Grand Slams dominated for years by the ‘Big Three’ of Djokovic, Nadal and Roger Federer, Thiem will bid to become the first man born in the 1990s to win a major title.

Baseball wins twice, loses once in Tony Gwynn Classic

first_imgJunior shortstop Ben Ramirez hit 3 of his 8 total RBIs this season in USC’s win over San Diego State Saturday. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) USC will travel to face Cal State Fullerton before returning home to take on Keio University Tuesday and Wednesday. CSUF is 3-4 on the season despite having a historically strong program. On the other hand, Keio — a part of the Tokyo Big6 Baseball League that features six prominent baseball programs — will be traveling from Japan for an exhibition game. USC beat Seattle University 6-2, lost to Southern Illinois 3-1 and took down SDSU in a comeback 11-5 victory. The Trojans are now 4-2 early in the season. As for the Aztecs, sophomore pitcher Aaron Eden had a perfect first three innings before giving up a walk with two outs in the fourth. But it was only a matter of time before USC started its comeback. The Trojans put up 11 unanswered runs the rest of the game, including 2 in the seventh and 4 more in the ninth. For the Trojans, freshman center fielder Rhylan Thomas finished the game with three hits and 2 runs while junior shortstop Ben Ramirez finished with three RBIs. “I was actually pretty proud of them,” head coach Jason Gill said. “It was a long stretch. We didn’t hit well yesterday, and then the first five innings of the game today seemed to snowball into ‘Oh no, here we go again.’ It just takes one or two guys to break that open.” The game started off quickly for the Trojans as USC scored three runs in the first inning thanks to a 3-run home run from sophomore first baseman Clay Owens, who finished with 4 RBIs. Juniors righty Kyle Hurt and lefty John Beller combined to allow just one earned run on the night as the Trojans coasted to the victory. It was SDSU, however, which started the game off hot, scoring 5 runs in the first four innings. Redshirt sophomore pitcher Alex Cornwell lasted only 3.2 innings, giving up 3 earned runs on nine hits for the Trojans a week after pitching 5.2 innings of 2-run ball against Western Michigan. “[SDSU was] kinda pitching us backward, and to beat guys like that, you gotta use the whole field,” Gill said. “You can’t just sit up there and try to hit 500-foot home runs. What [Thomas and Ramirez] did was [they] went the other way with the baseball. And it paid off.”center_img Sophomore first baseman Clay Owens is hitting .421 on the season with 7 RBIs. Owens hit a clutch home run in USC’s win over Seattle Friday. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) The USC baseball team traveled to San Diego this past weekend to participate in the Tony Gwynn Classic at San Diego State. The Trojans took on another opponent they had not seen in more than 40 years when they played Southern Illinois Saturday. In USC’s second loss of the season, the Trojans could not find a way to get the bats going. There were still some bright spots for the Trojans, however. Junior pitcher Isaac Esqueda pitched 5.1 innings while allowing only 2 runs on six hits with three strikeouts, and Owens added two hits out of just four on the day for USC. USC took on Seattle Friday in the first game of the event. The Redhawks were an unfamiliar opponent for the Trojans, as USC entered Friday with just a 2-0 all-time head-to-head advantage.  In the final game of the Tony Gwynn Classic Sunday, USC took on a familiar opponent in SDSU. Having faced the Aztecs a total of 89 times, the Trojans got their 61st win against the Aztecs on a 5-run comeback win to cap off the weekend. “We gotta get on a little roll,” Gill said. “We have a tough matchup on Tuesday against Cal State Fullerton, and I know they just recently got ranked. So we got our hands full on Tuesday and that’s all we’re going to focus on.”last_img read more

Africa Cup of Nations winner Tiote, 30 dies in China

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP |  Ivory Coast international midfielder Cheick Tiote has died aged 30 while training with his Chinese club Beijing Enterprises, his spokesman announced in a statement on Monday.Tiote, who was part of the Ivory Coast squad that delivered the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after a 23 year drought although he was injured for the final, had only moved to China in February after ending a seven year stay with English outfit Newcastle United.“It is with deep sadness that I confirm that my client Cheick Tiote sadly passed away earlier today after collapsing in training with his club Beijing Enterprises,” Tiote’s spokesman Emanuele Palladino said.“We cannot say any more at the moment and we request that his family’s privacy be respected at this difficult time.“We ask for all your prayers.”Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez paid tribute to the talented Tiote, one of 10 children who like many of his international team-mates grew up in abject poverty and didn’t possess a pair of boots until he was 15.“It is with great sadness that I have this afternoon learned of Cheick’s death,” Benitez told the Newcastle website.“In the all the time that I have known him, he was a true professional, dedicated and above all, a great man. “Our hearts go out to his family and friends at such a sad time.”​Tiote moved to Newcastle from Dutch side FC Twente in 2010 and made 161 appearances for the Magpies, scoring once — the equaliser when Newcastle recovered from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 with Arsenal in 2011.The 52-times capped Tiote, who was in both the 2010 and 2014 World Cup squads, began his European club career with Belgian outfit Anderlecht but only played four times in three years with them — being loaned out to Dutch side Roda JC Kerkrade — before moving to Twente in 2008.last_img read more

Portugal outplay disappointing Bafana

first_imgSeemingly stunned, South Africa remained on the back foot as Portugal made all the early play, forcing one corner after another. Carlos Quieroz was fired as coach of Bafana Bafana in 2002, so he must have felt a quiet satisfaction when the team he now coaches beat South Africa 2-0 in Lausanne on Tuesday evening. Second goalIt wasn’t a surprise, therefore, when the Portuguese doubled their lead just before the hour-mark. Once more the goal came from a corner. Maybe that is what Bafana Bafana need when they play the top teams – a harder edge that can knock such sides off their free-flowing games. In the Confederations Cup, South Africa will face Spain, the European champions and runaway leaders at the top of the Fifa World Rankings. The Spanish are loaded with difference-makers from goalkeeper to striker and a less-than-fully-committed approach from Bafana Bafana could be severely punished. Early goalTheir introduction into the game hadn’t even been considered when the Portuguese took an early lead from a soft goal. South African goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune misjudged a corner kick and Bruno Alves made Bafana Bafana pay by heading home after only four minutes. Although he was generally well marshalled by the Portuguese defence, he managed a strong early shot to test the goalkeeper and another that passed just wide of the mark. Whatever South Africa’s shortcomings were, Portugal took advantage of them, and clearly showed the difference between a team ranked tenth in the world and one ranked 72nd. Chelsea midfielder Deco was again the provider for AEK Athens striker Edinho, who met the ball with his left foot at the far post to score and expose South Africa’s fragility at set-pieces for the second time in the contest; nobody had picked him up. With his team two goals down and playing second fiddle, Santana rang the changes for a different reason. He was hoping to salvage something from the game. Portugal offered nothing and ran out comfortable 2-0 winners. It was 1-0 to Portugal at the break, but they had been much the better team, dictating play throughout the opening stanza. Bafana had beaten Norway 1-0 in Rustenburg on Saturday, but that was only the side’s sixth win in 27 matches against European opposition. Afterwards, in the lead-up to the game against the Portuguese, coach Joel Santana and his players made all the right noises but, given SA’s less than stellar record against European teams, the chances of a second win in four days was remote, especially against the country ranked tenth in the Fifa World Rankings. Plenty of work neededWith the Confederations Cup fast approaching – it takes place from 14 to 28 June in South Africa – Santana still has plenty of work to do with Bafana Bafana. Not for the first time, the team seemed to freeze when confronted with a highly ranked team. With the game all but won after the second goal went in, Quieroz introduced three substitutes, including Ronaldo. 1 April 2009 In Lausanne, SA struggled to win 50/50 balls in midfield. It should be noted, however, that the side’s regular holding midfielder, Kagiso Dikgacoi, wasn’t in action, having also missed the Norway game on the weekend due to injury. SA coach Joel Santana had opted for a single striker, unlike his tactical approach against Norway when he used two strikers. That meant Red Star Belgrade marksman Bernard Parker was given the tough job of operating alone up front. Nonetheless, the defeat in Switzerland was disappointing as South Africa meekly surrendered to a Portugal team that started with star players Cristiano Ronaldo and Simao on the bench.
