Bianca becomes Canada’s first-ever Grand Slam champion

first_img… beats Serena Williams in gripping finalTEENAGER Bianca Andreescu stunned Serena Williams in gripping US Open final to claim a first Grand Slam title and deny the American a 24th major.Williams, 37, did not cope with the 19-year-old’s quality in a 6-3, 7-5 loss.Canadian Andreescu, in the main draw here for the first time, lost a double break in the second set before taking her third match point and falling to the ground in disbelief.“This year has been a dream come true,” Andreescu told the crowd.“I am beyond grateful and truly blessed. I’ve worked really hard for this moment. To play on this stage against Serena – a true legend of the sport – is amazing.”To the disappointment of a stunned home crowd, Williams has now lost four successive major finals.“Bianca played an unbelievable match,” Williams said. “I’m so proud and happy for you, it was incredible tennis out there.”Williams, seeded eighth, looked edgy throughout as she aimed to match Australian Margaret Court’s tally of all-time major wins, handing over three of Andreescu’s five breaks of serve with double faults.By contrast, 15th seed Andreescu played with the confidence which has marked her out as a star in a stunning breakthrough year.She is the first Canadian to win a tennis major and the first teenager to win a Grand Slam since Maria Sharapova claimed the 2006 title at Flushing Meadows.Andreescu kept her nerve to take a third match point with a forehand down the line, dropping her racquet to the ground and then, after a warm hug with Williams, lay on the court with her arms spread out as she contemplated her achievement.After returning to her feet, she used a hastily-arranged step ladder to climb into her player’s box and embrace her nearest and dearest, including parents Nicu and Maria.Before the match, Andreescu said if someone told her 12 months ago she would be facing Williams in the US Open final she would have thought they were “crazy”.Tellingly, in a sign of her unwavering confidence, she said she would not have felt the same if they told her the same thing a fortnight ago.Twelve months ago she lost in the first round of qualifying at Flushing Meadows and was ranked outside the top 200 in the world.But she has become the most talked-about young player on the planet following a remarkable rise this year.Andreescu, whose Romanian parents Nicu and Maria migrated to Canada in the 1990s, had only played six tour-level matches at the turn of the year.Since then she has won prestigious WTA Premier title at Indian Wells and Toronto, rising to 15th in the world as a result, and raking in of £1.79M of her £1.97M career prize money.Now she will rise to fifth in the world and take home another $3.85M (£3.13M) after this success.Andreescu was fearless throughout her maiden Grand Slam final and unfazed by the occasion of playing an American icon on the biggest tennis court in the world.‘ANDREESCU IS THE REAL DEAL’ – REACTIONTennis great Billie Jean King: “Congratulations to Bianca Andreescu on winning her first major title at the #USOpen. She is Canada’s first Grand Slam singles champion! The Future is now. A phenomenal effort by Serena Williams, until the very end.2019 Cincinnati Masters champion Madison Keys: “Congrats Bianca Andreescu on your first Grand Slam. So happy for you! Always a fighter, always inspiring – win or lose – Serena Williams. Such a great match to watch.”Wimbledon champion Simona Halep: “Congratulations Bianca Andreescu on an amazing performance and your first Grand Slam! Romania is very proud of you.”Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: “Congratulations Bianca Andreescu! You’ve made history and made a whole country very proud.” (BBC Sport)last_img read more

#Donkomi: Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu joins RB Leipzig on loan

first_imgChelsea defender, Ethan Ampadu has joined the Bundesliga side, RB Leipzig on a season-long loan.The Welsh international did not have many opportunities to play for the first team under Sarri last season although he signed a five-year contract extension in September of 2018.The 18-year-old has been admired by new Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard, but will have to let go of the young lad for a season.“I tried to sign Ethan on loan at Derby last year, so I’m a big fan,” he said.“But with the minutes he played last year, in the interest of Ethan and of Chelsea, the idea he can play a lot of games somewhere could be good for him.“I really wanted to work with Ethan this year. That’s a slight disappointment, but it’s to benefit of him. In midfield and defence, we have a lot of quality, so each player is a case by case.”Ethan joining RB Leipzig will see the 18-year-old get more game time and develop.Yet despite Chelsea’s transfer ban, Lampard believes that Chelsea’s midfield strength means the Wales international will be better served this season by plying his trade elsewhere.The teenager had attracted interest from a number of clubs including Aston Villa and some other Championship sides but the Welsh have signed with RB Leipzig where he will wear the No. 26 shirt.“I am very happy to be at RB Leipzig and start the season with the team,” said Ampadu. “I want to get to know the team as quickly as possible and integrate myself.“I’ve been following and seeing how fantastic young players have developed here over the last few years and what potential there is in this club.“So, it’s the perfect step for me.”It also means that he will garner Champions League experience, with RBL having finished third in the Bundesliga last season.last_img read more

WBG Prez. Urges More Support to Ebola-Affected Nations

first_imgThe President of the World Bank Group (WBG), Jim Yong Kim, has emphasized the need for more support to help Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone get to zero new Ebola cases.He said reaching zero new Ebola cases will help the three countries jumpstart their economy recovery and build a safer, more prosperous and resilient future for their citizens.“Many of us have acknowledged that the international community was slow to react to Ebola. Let’s show that we have learned this lesson by supporting an effective and sustainable recovery that also prepares these countries — and the rest of the world — for the next pandemic.” Kim said.He noted that, in addition to the severe effects of Ebola, the economic downturn in the three countries has been aggravated by the sharp decline in global iron ore prices, as well as the collapse of the mining sector in Sierra Leone, which has resulted in an unprecedented GDP contraction in that country estimated at 23.5 per cent.Since the WBG issued its last economic update on January 20, 2015, it says important differences among the three countries are emerging.The WBG new report has found that Sierra Leone is now facing a severe recession with the potential for an unprecedented 23.5% growth rate in 2015, resulting from financial issues that led to the closure of iron ore mining.The report also noted that a gradual return of Liberia to normalcy, with a projected GDP growth rate of 3%.The report further shows that the Ebola epidemic continues to cripple the economies of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.An estimated GDP losses for the three countries in 2015 rose to US$2.2 billion: US$240 million for Liberia, US$535 million for Guinea and US$1.4 billion for Sierra Leone.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in the week leading up to April 12, there were a total of 37 confirmed cases of Ebola, compared with 30 the previous week in Guinea and Sierra Leone.There has been no case reported in Liberia for the past three weeks.At the same time, World Bank has announced US$650 million as additional support to the three West Africa Ebola affected countries for the next 12 to 18 months to help them recover from the impact of the Ebola crisis.The new funding will be used to strengthen priority areas in health systems and frontline care, agriculture, education, cash transfers and other social protection programs, which include lifesaving infrastructure such as electricity, water, sanitation and roads.The funds will also be used to develop a regional disease surveillance system across West Africa that will help prevent or contain future pandemics.The new WBG pledge brings the organization’s total financing for Ebola response and recovery efforts to US$1.62 billion.Other commitments announced include $300 million from the African Development Bank, $80 million from GAVI, and $387 million from the Global Fund through 2017 for the worst Ebola affected countries in the sub region.This is in addition to previously committed funding to the Ebola response and recovery efforts from the United States, United Kingdom, and many other development partners, which represents a substantial investment in support of the national plans.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
