Expecting a win: Hamilton is hoping for a third win at Silverstone
Formula One returns home this weekend where celebrations will be far and wide as the British fans will get the chance to welcome back World Champion Lewis Hamilton hoping for the same result as last season.
Hamilton won the at Silverstone last year for only the second time, but went on to secure the Drivers Championship ahead of his teammate and rival, Nico Rosberg.
It was Rosberg who won last time out in Austria and closed the gap between him and Hamilton to just 10 points so a win for either Mercedes driver this weekend is absolutely crucial.
The 5.891 km track has always been a popular event on the racing calendar and the home crowd will be praying for a British winner in Lewis Hamilton as Jenson Button and Will Stevens unlikley to cause much threat.
Whilst James Ward and Vasek Pospisil were coming to the end of their match on Court 1 Andy Murray began his match against Andreas Seppi on Centre court and broke the Italian immediately to take a 1-0 lead. Murray then went on to consolidate the break for 2-0. Murray continued to impress in the early stages despite Seppi getting involved in the match the Brit led 4-2 and 30-0 on the Seppi serve followed by 40-0. Murray broke serve and continued his domination from 3-2 up to take the set 6-2.
Murray broke serve at the beginning of the set as well to extend his run of games to 4 in a row at 1-0 and then 2-0 with a hold of serve before Seppi got on the board for the first time in 5 games. Murray continued to hold serve well again with Seppi failing to carve out a…
Great Britain’s James Ward has already made history this week at Wimbledon, securing his place in the top 100 and his first time in the third round at Wimbledon bidding for a place in the fourth round against Victor Troicki however standing in his way was a tough test in Vasek Pospisil the 2014 Wimbledon doubles champion.
Both Ward and Pospisil got off to a pretty emphatic start on serve with both players holding serve to love to settle any nerves they may have had going into this one. Literally nothing to report in the opening six games of the match. Ward only dropped one point on serve in the opening three games from him and Pospisil only dropped three points on serve in his opening three games. On the 7th game we saw the first break of serve as Ward was broken following a lovely volley from Pospisil…
After two comfortable wins earlier in the week, Petra Kvitova finally met her match as the defending champion crashed out of Wimbledon losing to Jelena Jankovic who heads for the fourth round at the world number two’s expense.
For roughly four minutes last Tuesday, I watched doctors huddle around two women lying on the ground, one bleeding and motionless and the other kicking in pain.
It wasn’t a crime scene. It was the Women’s World Cup semi-final game at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. U.S. midfielder Morgan Brian and German forward Alexandra Popp smashed noggins while trying to head the ball after a free kick. Then, they both dropped.
Watching from the seats next to me were my 13-year-old daughter and several of her soccer teammates. Most of the girls and their friends have played in travel soccer clubs and worked with professional trainers since they were eight or nine years old. Soccer is part of their identities. So, it wasn’t a surprise that their expressions seemed a mix of concern and empathy. After all, I’ve seen several of these kids take hits that would make a grown…
After an epic match on court 2 between Garbine Muguruza and Angelique Kerber the crowd were then treated with another good match up as the inform player Timea Bacsinszky faced Sabine Lisicki who is at home on the grass and always puts on a performance at Wimbledon. Could Timea be the first player since 2008 (her 1st ever appearance at Wimbledon, going out in R1) to beat Sabine Lisicki before the quarter finals at Wimbledon?
It was the Swiss who started the match and got off to a very good start against the German holding serve immediately. Lisicki who didn’t really get going against McHale in the first set had a slow start to this one going 0-30 down and the 15-40 after three unforced errors which was then followed by another error from Lisicki who quickly went 2-0 down. 2-0 became 3-0 as Timea held serve well following…
For the third time this year and the second time at a major event Angelique Kerber and Garbine Muguruza locked horns again with both players securing a win against the other this year with Muguruza winning their last battle at Roland Garros a few weeks ago in three sets but Kerber leading the H2H 3-1 going into this fourth round match at Wimbledon.
The German got off to a very good start following 4 errors from Muguruza to begin the match. Kerber battled well at the back of the court forcing Muguruza to play the extra shot and then returned a drop shot beautifully to the back of the court and the forced the error to convert the break point for an early 2-0 lead. Some more exceptional tennis followed by Kerber who held for 3-0 against Muguruza who was playing aggressively hitting the ball so hard but producing a…
A few days into the transfer window opening both Liverpool and Arsenal have finally filled problem positions which they have struggled to solve over recent years.
Over recent years we have seen Szczesny, Almunia, Ospina, Martinez, Viviano, Fabianski and Mannone try to make the position their own but have failed to impress and make mistakes. After spending 11 years at Chelsea Petr Cech has left moving to Arsenal and is the safe pair of hands they need in goal. Cech is still one of the league’s best goal keepers despite rarely playing last season due to Courtois return from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid. At 33 years old Cech still has a number of years ahead of him as a top level goal keeper and can even helped out Szczesny who has struggled throughout the years making a number of mistakes.
