Del Potro sinks Nadal to set up final with Djokovic

first_imgBy Pritha Sarkar and Patrick JohnstonRafa Nadal failed to reach a final for only the second time during his incredible 2013 season after being blown off court by Argentine whirlwind Juan Martin Del Potro at the Shanghai Masters on Saturday.The Spaniard had been hoping to celebrate his return to the top of the world rankings this week by setting up a final showdown for the second time in as many weeks with chief rival Novak Djokovic.But Nadal, one of the fastest athletes on the tour, found himself outpaced 6-2 6-4 after a breathtaking semi-final display of power and touch by the 2009 U.S. Open champion.Serb Djokovic continued his love affair with the hard courts of China as he swotted aside the challenge of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2 7-5.The defending champion stretched his unbeaten run in China to 19 matches by overcoming Frenchman Tsonga.Del Potro’s 1.98-metre frame usually prevents him from threatening Nadal’s unshakeable ability to run the ball down at every corner of the court and the Spaniard’s 8-3 head-to-head record before the semi-final bore testament to that.On Saturday though Del Potro barely allowed Nadal, winner of 10 titles this year, a chance as he raced into a 4-0 lead in the first set before bagging it with a scorching ace.Nadal thought he had broken for the first time to level at 2-2 in the second but Hawkeye disagreed and from then on the world’s best player was chasing shadows as Del Potro produced one of the best performances of his career.The Spaniard fired a service return long on match point to hand a jubilant Del Potro his first win over Nadal since 2009.The result condemned French and U.S. Open champion Nadal to his earliest defeat since a shock first-round exit from Wimbledon in June, the only other time this year he failed to reach the final of an event he had featured in.Djokovic lost the world number one ranking to Nadal last week despite beating the Spaniard in the final of the China Open to claim his fourth Beijing title in five years.The Serb could add another Chinese title to his name after another slick display of returning in Shanghai heaped too much pressure on Tsonga who unravelled with 35 unforced errors.The world number two and Australian Open champion was quick out of the blocks, racing into a 3-0 lead after breaking Tsonga to love in his opening service game.The Frenchman looked like dropping another service game but some heavy hitting helped him get on the board before a sumptuous backhand crosscourt resulted in him breaking Djokovic in the next.That was as good as it got for Tsonga who is in a close race to grab one of the last remaining places at the ATP Tour Finals in London next month.Djokovic claimed the next three games to wrap up the set as Tsonga’s first serve percentage fell to 46, coupled with 14 unforced errors in comparison to just four by the Serb.A change of shirt and a renewed focus helped Tsonga stay on terms at the start of the second set before another misplaced volley handed Djokovic a break and a 4-2 lead.The Frenchman broke back immediately as Djokovic returned to his chair to scream at the umpire after a couple of late calls by a line judge.The Serb regained his composure and the set looked to be heading for a tiebreak with Tsonga serving at 5-6 before Djokovic raised his game once more.Tsonga saved one match point with a booming forehand before wasting the chance to force a tiebreak and Djokovic made him pay as he sealed victory at the second attempt with a powerful winner down the line.last_img read more

Fort St. John’s third Pride Walk taking place tomorrow

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace Pride Society will be hosting the third annual Pride Walk in Fort St. John on Saturday.Society spokesperson Lyle Goldie said that the Society is looking to make this year’s Pride Walk the biggest edition of the event thus far. The first Pride Walk was hosted by the Pride Society in 2016, and had several hundred participants walk from City Hall to Centennial Park. Last year’s event saw an increase in participants, with participants walking from Centennial Park to the green space at the site of the old Fort Hotel.Goldie said this year’s iteration of the Pride Walk will have the longest route, with the walk starting at WI Centennial Park across from CM Finch Elementary School. Participants were originally going to be walking to Ecole Central Elementary, since Centennial Park was due to be closed for renovations. Now however, the Pride Walk will actually be concluding at Centennial Park – the same location as in 2016 – since the renovations in the park aren’t set to begin until later in June.- Advertisement -The Pride Walk starts at WI Centennial Park at 2:00 p.m. on June 2nd.last_img read more

Every Premier League club’s last 20-goal striker – proof United’s issue isn’t Pogba

Sean Maitland ready for massive Calcutta Cup clash against England

first_imgMaitland anticipates an ‘unbelievable atmosphere’ at Murrayfield and hopes to feature for the second time against England this weekend – the first occasion being his international debut at Twickenham. The 27-year-old took just nine minutes to mark up his first try against the Red Rose, but England took control of the game and put a dampner on Maitland’s bow, with the match finishing 38-18 “It was mixed emotions that day, making my debut and scoring a try, but we got put away by a good England team” he reflected. Injuries have ruled the London Irish player out of the two encounters since then, but Saturday’s match will allow him and his Scotland team-mates the chance to claim the Calcutta Cup from the first time since 2008. Sean Maitland says the emotion of the Calcutta Cup will never be lost on him – because his Scottish grandparents taught him all about the intense rivalry with the England rugby team. The New Zealand-born winger was brought up watching the Six Nations on television and he’s aiming for a first win over England this weekend. Maitland made the switch to his Glaswegian relatives’ homeland in 2013, and reveals they factored heavily in his attitude towards Saturday’s RBS 6 Nationns opponents. “My grandparents made it pretty clear that I had to hate the English,” Maitland joked. “Not many people in New Zealand like the English as well.” “Now we are just focusing on us” Maitland analysed, “we are not worrying about results and what happened in the past. We are just working on how we are going to beat England.”last_img read more

League Two wrap: Forfar stay on streak, Edinburgh City bag first point

first_imgWalker could have done better for Elgin’s second goal, however, after he failed to stop Jamie Reid’s effort from creeping into the corner on 24 minutes.Chris McLeish then hit a post for the dominant visitors, but Berwick battled back to halve the deficit just before the break as Greg Hurst scored his first goal for the club.Reid hit a post on the hour mark, but Gunn restored Elgin’s two-goal advantage on 75 minutes with a right-footed effort.Hurst fired home his second of the afternoon moments later, but Gunn eased any Elgin nerves to complete his own brace with four minutes remaining.Clyde striker Peter MacDonald struck a second-half winner as Arbroath’s unbeaten start in  League Two came to an end after a 3-2 defeat at Broadwood Stadium.Barry Ferguson’s Clyde, who moved up to second with the win, were ahead within six minutes courtesy of Scott Linton’s right-footed effort, but Josh Skelly equalised for Arbroath moments later.Clyde hit back on 24 minutes, though, when Martin McNiff headed home Dylan Easton’s corner.That lead lasted just 20 minutes as Bobby Linn bagged his fourth league goal of the season for Arbroath to level the game at half-time.Both sides pushed for a winner in the second half, but it was Clyde who found it through MacDonald’s right-footed effort on 71 minutes.Cowdenbeath earned their second victory of the  Scottish League Two season, coming from behind to beat winless Montrose 2-1 at Links Park.An even first half fittingly finished level despite goals in the last two minutes of normal time.Montrose went ahead when Gary Fraser found the bottom-right corner with a penalty after Nikolay Todorov fouled Gary Fraser. But Gary Glen’s close-range header restored parity.Kriss Renton tapped home from close range to put the visitors ahead nine minutes after the break. Montrose threatened little thereafter although at the death Terry Masson hit the bar with a shot from the edge of the area.Ross Allum’s late goal gave Edinburgh City their first point since promotion to Scottish League Two as they held Stirling to a 1-1 draw at Forthbank Stadium.Stirling started brightly, Eddie Ferns’ run setting up Isaac Layne who fired over. But home goalkeeper Chris Smith had to make an excellent save in the 17th minute to keep out out Dean Cummings’ header.Ferns continued to cause problems after half-time, again setting up Layne whose effort was brilliantly stopped by Calum Antell. Fittingly it was Ferns who set up the goal, swinging in a free-kick that skipper Ross McMillan glanced into the bottom-right corner. However Allum fired into the corner from Dougie Gair’s cross with six minutes to go and almost won it at the death when his shot was blocked. The growing Forfar pressure was rewarded, though, when Munro atoned for his earlier error by heading home David Cox’s cross on the hour mark. Milne then bagged his third league goal of the season to complete the comeback for the leaders with six minutes remaining.Substitute Craig Gunn scored twice as Elgin secured their first win in three  League Two games with a 4-2 victory at Berwick.Shane Sutherland opened the scoring for City on 11 minutes, following up following a decent save from Kevin Walker to slot home left-footed. Lewis Milne’s late winner kept Forfar’s 100 per cent start to the  League Two season intact with a 2-1 victory at Annan. The Black and Golds came out of the blocks quickly and were ahead midway through the first half thanks to Max Wright’s penalty. Forfar’s Andy Munro was judged to have fouled David McKenna in the box and Wright slotted home his third goal of the season in all competitions. Annan midfielder Darren Ramsay fired a volley just wide, while Josh Peters came closest for Forfar in the first half. Peters was again whiskers away from an equaliser after the restart, but Blair Currie did well to deny the Loons striker before Milne hit the bar moments later. last_img read more
