Pepe Reina secured the points with an injury-time penalty save.Giampaolo said, “I am quite cool-headed during a game, fortunately. I had doubts it was a penalty, but Reina has so much character that I had faith he would save it.“It was a difficult match, we went underwater and were under a lot of pressure, so I praise the lads for not letting go. I didn’t even care if they misplaced a pass or a goal, the important thing was to give a response in terms of character.“I want us to continue with this character, but obviously hope to get a sharper and higher quality style of football in future.“I want to see this team play better football, but it wasn’t possible today because they felt the pressure so much and needed the victory so badly. We had to scrape the last bit of determination and character. I couldn’t ask them for beautiful football today, as we had other objectives.”
New York: While a host of young rivals hope to disrupt the dominance of the “Big Three” in men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer remain the US Open favorites. The year’s final Grand Slam showdown starts Monday on the Flushing Meadows hardcourts with top-ranked Djokovic, 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer and Spanish superstar Nadal having combined to win the past 11 Grand Slam titles. Federer, 38, doesn’t see a problem with the dominance by the sport’s elder statesmen, who together own 54 of the past 65 Slam titles.

I think that’s very encouraging for those who want to see somebody else win. I think also Novak’s domination, Rafa’s domination is also not normal for the game of tennis. “I think there’s going to be chances moving forward, but it’s not surprising with the type of tennis they’ve been playing in recent years.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Third-seeded Federer also throws in a chance for Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka, who like Britain’s injured Murray has won three Slam crowns during the “Big Three” reign, but figures a familiar face will be lifting the US Open trophy. “Yeah, it seems like the same guys are the favorites again this time around,” Federer said. “It will be a surprise if anybody else won.” Defending champion Djokovic, seeking a 17th career Grand Slam title, has won four of the past five Slams, denied only by Nadal’s French Open win in June. The 32-year-old Serbian says he has adjusted to the extra pressure of defending over the years. “It’s a paramount challenge to defend a Grand Slam title,” he said. “These are the tournaments you want to win the most. This is where you want to shine.” Nadal, 33, has made an impressive run with titles at Rome, the French Open and Montreal and a Wimbledon semi-final loss to Federer. “Arrive to the big events with good feelings helps,” Nadal said. “Positive feeling, positive memory on my mind. That helps for the confidence. “For the moment I am feeling well. I am practicing well during the whole week. Now remain a couple of days to just push a little bit more and try to start the tournament in a good way.” Second-ranked Nadal, an 18-time Grand Slam winner who took his 12th French Open title in June, isn’t too excited over Federer and Djokovic both being in the opposite half of the draw. “I have to win my matches to have an advantage because I only can meet them in the semifinals,” Nadal said. “I have plenty of work before that to know if I have an advantage or not.” – Medvedev, Thiem surging – =========================== Russia’s Daniil Medvedev has enjoyed a stellar US Open run-up with a win at Cincinnati and runner-up efforts at Washington and Montreal. “I don’t consider myself as one of the favorites just because at this moment of my career I haven’t even been in a quarter-final of a Slam,” Medvedev said. “If I get to the quarter-final, it’s going to be already a step forward and I’m going to be really happy about it. “When I play my best tennis I can beat basically everybody and that’s what I need to keep doing here.” Austrian fourth seed Dominic Thiem lost to Nadal in the Roland Garros final and will be a threat. “Every year he’s improving,” Nadal said. “Every day he’s very solid and every year is more solid. “He has everything to win important events. He already is winning important events. He’s a very, very hard worker. Just a question of time that he achieve all his goals.” Germany’s sixth-ranked Alexander Zverev warns not to ignore other lower seeds such as Japan’s seventh-seeded Kei Nishikori, the 2014 US Open runner-up, and Greece’s eighth-ranked Stefanos Tsitsipas. “There are a few guys that have a real shot to win it,” Zverev said. “Obviously the ‘Big Three’ we don’t need to talk about. Of course, Novak is the big favorite, no question about it, but there are other guys that have been playing great tennis. I think those guys will be able to do some damage.” Federer, however, wouldn’t mind stretching his lead over Djokovic and Nadal in the men’s all-time Grand Slam title race. “I’m not putting extra pressure on myself. I know it’s going to be tough,” Federer said. “I feel like I’m part of that group who can do it.”

Greater Noida: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said India hit terrorists in their backyard after the Pulwama terror attack and accused the previous Congress-led UPA government of lacking courage to take action against Pakistan-based terror groups after 26/11 Mumbai terror attack in 2008. Addressing a rally here, Modi said what his government did post-Pulwama has not been done in decades. “We hit terrorists in their houses. The terrorists and their masters were not expecting this kind of response. The air strikes were done at 3.30 am and Paksitan lost its sleep. They tweeted at 5 a.m. and started saying that Modi has hit us,” he said. Recalling the surgical strike of 2016 in the wake of terror attack at Uri, he said terror masterminds were accustomed to thinking that India would do nothing, but his government has “taught them a lesson”. He alleged that perception about inaction by India was due to the government that ruled India before 2014. Modi said that there was need of action after the Mumbai terror attack that killed 166 people as the world community was with India. “But it needs courage. There were proofs of involvement of terror masterminds based in Pakistan. But what did India do?” he asked. Modi said the forces were ready for action but “Delhi was cold”. He said terror cannot be fought by constraining hands of defence force. Referring to the terror incidents after the Mumbai attack, Modi said these were also linked to Pakistan but the “remote-controlled” government showed inaction. “What did the then government do? They did not change the policy, but (changed) only home ministers. If they had shown the courage, given reply to terrorists in their language, terrorism would not have become such a big problem (for the country),” he said.
After three years, 386 sets and 107 matches, Ohio State women’s volleyball player Emily Danks killed another benchmark. In the Buckeyes Saturday contest against Toledo, Danks amassed her 1000th career kill, a feat only accomplished by 18 other OSU student-athletes before her in the sport. Danks, an American Volleyball Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-American selection, said she has both strengths and weaknesses going into the upcoming season, but she has been working hard to improve her game. “I think my biggest area of improvement is defense,” Danks said. “I have been working with Andrew (Palileo), our assistant head coach, and hopefully that will help me out.” But as Danks and the No. 24-ranked Buckeyes (2-1) opened up the 2012 season with back-to-back wins against Houston and Toledo last weekend in the Sports Imports DC Koehl Classic, OSU met its match against Oregon Saturday, falling 3-2 to the Ducks. The senior outside hitter said she has high hopes for the team this season. “We have a really good team this year and a lot of depth,” Danks said. “I’m excited to see how far we can go.” Danks said her favorite game she has played at OSU was the team’s match against Minnesota last year on Sept. 30, in which the Buckeyes swept the then-No. 10-ranked Gophers three games to none. “We won, and there is a clip online that I watch all the time,” Danks said. “It was just a definition of a fun volleyball game.” Danks said the team has set a goal this season to do better than they have in the past, and hopefully they will advance in the sport’s championship tournament to either the “Elite Eight” or even the national championship. Although Danks said she loves volleyball, she is looking forward to other personal and academic opportunities after this season. “Volleyball has been really good to me, but it is time to move on,” Danks said. “I’m looking into grad schools all over the country right now.” The Buckeyes will face Binghamton University in the Maryland Invitational in College Park, Md. Friday at 5 p.m.

We must play as a team. There’s a lot at stake and we are not allowed any false step.”“We have prepared two or three different tactical solutions based on how Juve will play. They have a winning mentality, fear nothing and are used to playing these games.

He is a great asset for our team and for the club. His teammates and I will all be here waiting for him.”“If we manage to do well in both the offensive and the defensive phase, we can do well against Juve.

Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“It’s the same with this Liverpool team. You admire the goals and creativity but can overlook the intensity they play with when they don’t have the ball. If they can keep it going, whoever finishes in front of them this season will win the league.“The front three put the ball under pressure every minute. They nick the ball high up the pitch, they hunt in packs and they all know what they are doing.“They are all a goal threat but in this game they showed another side and worked their socks off. You can say Tottenham didn’t play well but a fundamental reason for that is they weren’t given any time and space to play.”
