Daniil Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic recently.Daniil Medvedev took a medica timeout immediately after the second set.The 29-year-old from Chennai competed in all Grand Slams this season.center_img New York: India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran got a taste of high level tennis in his first-round exit from the US Open, losing to world number five Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in New York. The gulf between Prajnesh and top-10 players were wide and apparent as he lost 4-6 1-6 2-6 to the Russian, who recently vanquished multiple Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic. The Indian left-hander began aggressively but could not maintain intensity after losing the well-fought first set at Louis Armstrong Stadium on Monday. The pressure induced unending unforced errors from Prajnesh, who was trying too hard. He had the heart to fight but lacked experience of playing at this level against the best in business. Nevertheless, the 29-year-old from Chennai competed in all Grand Slams this season, though he is yet to win a round in the singles main draw. Long rallies featured from the word go, though, Prajnesh took some time to find his range. The Indian dropped his serve in the very first game of the match but broke back Medvedev in the fourth with a crushing inside-out forehand winner after serving at love. The Russian broke back immediately when he placed a cross-court forehand from baseline in the open court.It was a dogfight but Medvedev nosed ahead again with another break of serve and consolidated it with a hold. Prajnesh mixed it up nicely by striking hard from the baseline with his free-flowing forehand and played some deft drop shots to set up points. Prajnesh’s body language was aggressive while Medvedev largely remained calm as the Russian served big and his solid returns in long rallies helped him take those extra points. Unforced errors from Prajnesh when Medvedev served for the opening set made easy the job of the Russian.Prajnesh began the second set with double faults and a forehand error at 30-all put him down by a breakpoint, which Medvedev converted. From here it became a one-way traffic as unforced errors from Prajnesh continued to pile and soon he was down 0-3 with a double break. He finally got on the board in the fifth game but was now trailing 1-4. The second set was over in no time with more and more errors coming off the Indian’s racquet.Medvedev took a medical timeout immediately after the second set to treat his left thigh but did not let Prajnesh take any advantage. He played smartly by making the points short. Prajnesh only helped his rival’s cause by not curtailing errors. He had lost steam and was going all out but the balls just flew over the lines. Medvedev had no trouble in closing the match in his favour after one hour and 24 minutes.last_img read more

MLAX : SQUEEZE PLAY: Orange stays patient, finds open seams against Tigers defense to stay perfect

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ PRINCETON, N.J. — Stephen Keogh was playing a game within the game. The Syracuse attack stayed on the crease, tricking out his defender to try and get open. Fortunately for Keogh, the teammates who were sending passes his way knew exactly what he was doing.‘I think just trying to play games with my man and set picks,’ Keogh said. ‘Jeremy (Thompson) and Joel (White) are both former box players, so the pick-and-roll games, they’re well aware of it.’Against Princeton’s defensive game plan, that was the Orange’s answer. As the Tigers packed around the crease, Syracuse (9-0, 2-0 Big East) stayed patient. It turned to Keogh for help in breaking through, and he responded with three goals to help send No. 1 SU to a 7-5 win over Princeton (2-6) in front of 5,401 at Princeton Stadium on Saturday.The Tigers tried to force SU to take shots from the outside. They packed the crease, placing defenders near the cage to try to keep Syracuse’s scorers from shooting close. With so many defenders around the crease, the Orange attack was left open as it passed around the outside.In the first quarter, SU’s offense was called for stalling, a call that infuriated SU head coach John Desko. His argument was that if the Tigers weren’t defending, then the Orange shouldn’t be called for stalling.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDesko sprinted down the sideline to argue the official’s call, but it was to no avail. Princeton was given possession.‘I probably let my emotions get the best of me in the first half,’ Desko said. ‘We were told to keep it in a number of times. They play a sagging zone defense. You have to be very patient with your offense, especially when they’re jamming the crease.’Just like in its win against Duke last weekend, patience was key for the Orange against Princeton. Syracuse’s offense returned to its ways of making smart passes to hold possession and waiting for an open look. Not making anything easier was the fact that Princeton goaltender Tyler Fiorito came into the game yielding about seven goals per contest. Still, Syracuse had to find a way.That’s where Keogh came in. With just less than two minutes left in the first quarter, White sent Keogh a bounce pass from the right side of the goal. Keogh took the pass right on the edge of the crease, quickly shot it low and snuck it into the back of the net past Fiorito to put the Orange up 3-1.Plays like those are what allowed Syracuse to keep its perfect record intact in yet another close game. Princeton tied up the score at 5-5 in the third quarter, but the Orange still didn’t abandon its game plan of being patient. When given the opportunity, the Tigers held onto the ball. But SU made the right decisions when going to the goal.The Tigers may have tested SU’s patience on offense, but the Orange responded with great poise.‘You do get a little anxious to go out there and take a shot, especially when you have an open opportunity,’ said midfielder Jovan Miller. ‘Such great goaltending makes you think twice about it. I think our patience was key for us today.’Miller thought twice about 30 seconds into the game. The midfielder ran in toward the net and looked like he was about to shoot from 15 yards out. But rather than risk losing possession, he turned and passed off to midfielder Josh Amidon, who took an open shot from 10 yards out to give the Orange an early 1-0 lead. Keogh scored his second goal in the second quarter when Thompson beat three Tiger defenders and sent him an over-the-shoulder pass. Once again, standing just in front of the crease, Keogh took the pass and flipped it right into the goal. Again, patience led to an open look on the doorstep in an open seam.‘They want us to take a bunch of shots from the outside,’ Desko said. ‘You have to be really patient and really work for good shots off the inside.’That’s what Syracuse did to win another close game. It stayed patient and worked for shots. Perhaps most importantly, it found Keogh on the crease.Said Keogh: ‘It’s a good victory for us. We’ll take it.’ Commentscenter_img Published on April 8, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

Egwim to Be Sidelined for Four Months after Successful Surgery

first_img*El Kanemi goalkeeper, Yekini, sorry over injuryEnugu Rangers striker, Ifeanyi Egwim, is expected to make a return to competitive football in four months barring any hitch.Rangers’ club’s doctor, Emeka Onyia, disclosed to yesterday that the former Dolphins man has undergone a first operation at the National Orthopaedic Hospital in Enugu following a tibia-fibular fracture he sustained during his team’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) final day game against El-Kanemi Warriors on Sunday. Onyia confirmed that the Rangers man is in stable condition after having his broken leg operation upon at the hospital in Enugu and should make his way to playing in the sport in four months once he goes through rehabilitation.He further explained why the hospital decided to operate on Egwim in Nigeria despite the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, ordering that the player be flown abroad for treatment.“We just left the operating theatre not long ago and the operation on Ifeanyi went well and he is currently stable. The operation had to be carried out on him considering that the fracture he sustained on his tibia-fibular was an open one, so we had to operate rather than fly him abroad if we take into cognisance of the process it might take to get visas and other documents.“Mind you, money in flying him abroad isn’t the issue here but we needed to put the career of Ifeanyi into consideration first before thinking of the option of flying him abroad considering the nature of his injured.However if there is need to fly him abroad that will be done.“The time-frame for his return should be four months,” the Rangers team doctor revealed.Egwim suffered a leg fracture in his team’s 4-0 win after coming off the bench to replace Ocheme Edoh in a one-on-one situation with El-Kanemi goalkeeper, Kazeem Yekeen. Television replays have shown that Egwim simply slipped and fell leading to the fracture without any contact from Yekeen, who was sent off for the incident with Rangers being awarded a spot kick.Meanwhile, Kazeem has described as regrettable the sour incident on that almost marred the end chapter of the top-flight.Kazeem said he has no intention whatsoever to cause any form of injury on the Rangers man, Egwim.“I feel very bad over the unfortunate incident I have not been myself since that day.“The truth is that the guy has cropped the injury prior to getting in contact with me.“I could not have gone out of my way intentionally to hurt him knowing what we players face in the hands of club managements whenever we are injured.“It was a one-on-one situation I went for the ball but I could not. He jumped up to avoid me and in the process went down wrongly.“When I looked up, it was red card from the referee to me. I was surprised because I did not have any contact with him. However, the injury overshadowed every other thing for all of us that Sunday evening. It was really painful.“I’m a careful goalkeeper so it was naturally for me to feel very sad and sorry for the whole incident.“I’m willing to personal visit him in the hospital to wish him quickest recovery,” said the former Bayelsa United shot stopper to this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
