Zverev overpowers Federer for Montreal title

AFPMONTREAL – Alexander Zverev shocked second seed Roger Federer in straight sets in the Montreal Masters final to win his fifth title of the season and announce himself as an emerging star for the US Open.The 20-year-old German used his booming serve to overpower Federer 6-3, 6-4 Sunday as the Swiss superstar never got a chance to get into the match.“I tried to be aggressive as I can,” said Zverev. “If Roger starts being aggressive with his forehand and backhand then it is not going to be an easy day for me.”Zverev avenged a 6-1, 6-3 loss to Federer in the Halle final in June — his only loss in a final this season.He is now tied with Federer for the most titles this season at five.“It’s a wonderful achievement for him,” Federer said of Zverev. “I wish him the best for the coming months and hope he can finish the season very strong.“I’m just really happy for him, to see that he’s taking everything not just to the next level, but the two next levels.”Zverev blasted six aces and won 80 percent of first serve points as he needed just 68 minutes to dominate the 19-time Grand Slam winner and reigning Wimbledon and Australian Open champion.Zverev hammered away at the 36-year-old Federer with excellent court coverage keeping him off balance throughout the 30 minute opening set. He closed out the set with serve to the backhand that an out of sorts Federer dumped into the ground.Federer, who was broken three times, looked just as frustrated to open the second set, hitting backhands long and freezing in his tracks as aces whizzed by.Zverev capped his victory on the first match point when Federer hit a forehand long.Federer suffered just his third loss of a season and had his longest win match streak in five years snapped at 16.Federer, who dropped to 5-1 in finals in 2017, is undergoing a resurgence this season after it appeared to many he might be slowing down as he transitions through his mid-30s.But he entered the Montreal event on short notice and has taken more time off this year than usual. He skipped the clay-court season from April to mid-June.He said playing a lot on the hardcourts this week caught up to him on Sunday.“I felt all right all week. Had a bit of muscle pain, aches and pains here and there, just because it’s back on the match courts, on the hard courts,” Federer said. “After vacation and practice, it’s always a bit of a shock for the body.“We’ll have to wait and see now how I feel in the next couple of days.”Federer will travel to Cincinnati Sunday night for the next tournament then see if he can play back to back events.“I will take a decision in the next couple of days and see how I feel after five days of playing, if I’m ready to play in Cincy next week or not,” he said.“Looking ahead to the US Open, obviously I want to be in the best possible shape. Winning my third of the year, my 20th Grand Slam, would be completely insane. I just hope I’m going to be 100 percent ready when the moment arises.”Federer was hoping to add another milestone to his memorable season but he failed to post his 94th career title which would have moved him into a tie for second all-time with Ivan Lendl.

Borough Will Reconsider Vote on Moving Hospital Boundaries

first_imgTestimony from Homer was mostly from South Peninsula Hospital employees who spoke of SPH’s partnership with the Ninilchik clinic and the negative impacts SPH would suffer if it lost the tax revenue from Ninilchik residents. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A last minute request from Soldotna Assemblyman Dale Bagley could overturn a Tuesday evening vote which would leave Ninilchik residents in the South Peninsula Hospital Service Area. Ninilchik residents who would be affected by the change testified that they’ve been paying the significantly higher mill rate of South Peninsula Hospital since the lines were drawn in 1969, but they live closer to CPH and use Soldotna’s services. During the 1969 vote, Ninilchik residents were overwhelmingly against being included in the SPH service area, but were overwhelmed at the polls by Homer voters. The vote will be taken up for reconsideration at the Assembly’s next meeting in August. If it is approved at that time, the issue will be put to area voters. During closing comments, Bagley requested reconsideration of the vote. Sterling Assemblyman Stan Welles was absent on Tuesday. His vote would break the tie. The vote failed on a 4-4 stalemate with Bagley in the minority. Bagley, Holmdahl, Johnson, and Knopp voted in favor of moving the boundary line closer to the half-way point between Soldotna and Homer, reasoning that residents who live closer to Soldotna should pay their taxes to Central Peninsula Hospital. Asm. Bagley(Soldotna): “I think if I lived in that area all these years, I would be extremely upset and I think I’d like to tell people that live in Homer and other Assembly Members to put yourself in the shoes of people that live in that area. It is a fairness issue and I don’t know how it couldn’t have passed tonight, but I guess everyone has different views in life.”last_img read more

World Cup 2018: Uruguay tease French star Griezmann ahead of quarter-finals

first_imgDays ahead of a high-profile quarter-final at FIFA World Cup 2018 against France, Uruguay’s players reminded Antoine Griezmann of his links to Luka Modric’s men.Griezmann, star France forward, plays with Uruguayan defenders Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin at Atletico Madrid, met them at Madrid airport in a Uruguayan shirt when they sealed qualification for Russia, and even enjoys the ‘mate’ tea loved by the South Americans.”Griezmann is very Uruguayan, he passes himself off as a Uruguayan. For him, it’s going to be a special game, like for us,” midfielder Nahitan Nandez told reporters at the Uruguayan base outside Nizhny Novgorod where they will play Friday’s game.”All I can say is that we hope he behaves well on the pitch and remembers he is half Uruguayan!”2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGESuch is the close relationship that Godin is godfather to Griezmann’s daughter.Griezmann has scored two goals in the World Cup so far. Against Argentina in the Round of 16, Griezmann scored France first goal off a penalty earned by Kylian Mbappe.While Mbappe pace wrecked havoc at the Argentine defence, Griezmann’s sharp passes and little runs quitely initiated France’s superlative attack.In their last major tournament, Griezmann was France’s star forward. He scored six goals in Euro 2016, the highest tally of the tournament, to lead France to the final, where they lost to Portugal.France will be up against the strong Uruguayans. Griezmann will be up against the staunch defence that shields his side at the club level.advertisementGriezmann knows he is up against similar faces but that might play to his advantage. He recently even said that Uruguay will play like Atletico Madrid and defend hard to look to break when they get their chances.There is the crack and the trouble!As usual, the Uruguayans looked chilled off the pitch – a contrast with their hard tackling and famous “garra” or fighting spirit on it. After beating Portugal 2-1 to secure a quarter-final spot, they celebrated with a barbecue and family visits.The only cloud in the Uruguayan camp was a calf injury to two-goal hero Edinson Cavani, who was helped off the pitch by Cristiano Ronaldo and is now fighting to get fit for Friday.”He’s very happy with qualifying and with his own performance and the team the other day,” said midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur. “Today he worked on his recovery. His mood is very good. We have just have to wait and see how his recovery goes each day, and how he feels.”The players are under no illusion of the enormity of their challenge against France, who dumped out Argentina in a 4-3 thriller featuring two goals from pacy teenager Kylian Mbappe.”They look good, their speed play is incredible. We’ll try and stay tight,” said Bentancur.”They have good players… but if there’s something we know, it’s how to turn a game in our favour,” added Nandez.Bentancur looked bemused when a Russian journalist informed him a street near Nizhny Novgorod Stadium carried his name. “What a coincidence. Let’s hope it brings luck!” he said.Another local feature that initially irked the Uruguayans was the fact their hotel is painted in Brazil colours. But after four wins in four, maybe that is becoming a lucky omen too.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more

FSIN Chief Bellegarde says Tsilhqotin decision bolsters treaty argument for resource revenue

first_imgAPTN National NewsFederation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Chief Perry Bellegarde said Thursday’s Supreme Court of Canada ruling acknowledging the  Tsilhqot’in have Aboriginal title over a vast swath of land will “bolster” the argument for resource revenue sharing in territories covered by the numbered treaties.“It comes back to the treaty itself and the understanding of the treaty that we would share the land resource wealth only to the depth of a plow,” said Bellegarde. “Anything beneath that is not on the table.”The Supreme Court granted a declaration of Aboriginal title to a First Nation for the first time in the historic ruling handed down Thursday. The ruling covers 1,750 square kilometres of Tsilhqot’in land.The ruling acknowledged Indigenous nations can claim occupancy and control over vast swaths of land beyond specific settlement sites, provides more clarity on Aboriginal title and sets out the parameters for government “incursion” into land under Aboriginal title.The ruling is expected to have an immediate impact on territories not covered by numbered treaties. Most of B.C. is not covered by treaty.Parts of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories are covered by the numbered treaties and the Crown position has always been that First Nations surrendered their territories under these treaties.Bellegarde, however, said none of the original Indigenous treaty signers believed they were surrendering anything and only agreed to share the land and its resources.“We didn’t give up everything to the Crown,” said Bellegarde. “With the passing of this decision, it will bolster our argument to set up a formal process to deal with this unfinished treaty [email protected]@APTNNewslast_img read more

Indias data storing call comes with risk Zuckerberg

first_imgNew Delhi: India’s data localisation demands are understandable but allowing it for one nation can trigger a demand from countries which are much more authoritarian and can misuse the citizens’ data, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said. In a conversation with historian and author Yuval Noah Harari on Friday, Zuckerberg said the motives and intents behind storing data locally matter the most. “I think that… the motives matter and certainly, I don’t think that either of us would consider India to be an authoritarian country,” Zuckerberg responded to a question why is it safe to store the data about Indian citizens in the US and not in India when they’re openly saying they care only about themselves. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year “The intent matters, right. And I think countries can come at this with open values and still conclude that something like that could be helpful. “But I think one of the things that you need to be very careful about is that if you set that precedent you’re making it very easy for other countries that don’t have open values and that are much more authoritarian and want the data not to protect their citizens but to be able to surveil them and find dissidents and lock them up,” Zuckerberg emphasised. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India In an earlier earnings call with investors, he said that Facebook won’t store sensitive data in countries where it might be improperly accessed. “More countries following the approach of authoritarian regimes adopting strict data localization policies where governments can more easily access people’s data, and I’m highly concerned about that future,” he noted. “Our stance on data localisation is a risk. That is, if we get blocked in a major country, that will hurt our community and our business. But our principles on data localization aren’t new and this has always been a risk,” the Facebook CEO added. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines say that all digital payment firms like Google Pay, WhatsApp and others must store data locally for their businesses. In the conversation with Harari, he said that Facebook needs to build up really advanced systems for detecting interference in the democratic process and more broadly being able to identify that. “The idea is to identify when people are standing up networks of fake accounts that are not behaving in a way that normal people would, to be able to weed those out and work with law enforcement and election commissions and folks all around the world and the intelligence community to be able to coordinate and be able to deal with that effectively,” Zuckerberg noted. Stopping abuse is certainly important, but, said Zuckerberg, “I would argue that, even more, the deeper question: Is that the intrinsic design of the systems, right?”last_img read more
