Sweat, friends and bagels: The making of Naomi Osaka

Jaime Lawson/Getty Images for USTA/AFPIn an age of robotic press conferences where players are staying focussed and taking it one match at a time, Naomi Osaka breezes in, confesses to being fond of sweating, eating 500 bagels a day and having only one friend.It’s all peppered with liberal doses of ‘likes’, ‘you knows’ and ‘stuff’.ADVERTISEMENT Serena: ‘I am not a cheat’, accuses tennis of ‘sexism’ Tsukii seizes kumite Gold, focuses on making Olympics next PLAY LIST 01:24Tsukii seizes kumite Gold, focuses on making Olympics next05:05SEA Games 2019: Rubilen Amit finally beats Chezka Centeno for 9-ball gold (HIGHLIGHTS)00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Out in the southern Californian desert, she knocked out Maria Sharapova in the first round, Halep in the semi-finals before lifting the title with victory over Daria Kasatkina.In seven matches, she dropped only one set.The following week, she defeated Williams in her opening match in Miami.Like Williams, Osaka has enjoyed a sibling rivalry although nowhere near as intense and barrier-breaking as Serena and her sister Venus.Big sister Mari Osaka is also a professional who this week was playing on the second-tier circuit in Switzerland, losing in the quarter-finals of a $60,000 event.Victory on Saturday earned Naomi $3,800,000 but she remembers the days when her older sister was the best player in the Osaka household.“When I was practicing with my dad, if my sister wasn’t there, I don’t think I would have made it,” she said.“She beat me 6-0 until I was 15, and then I don’t know what happened but one day I beat her 6-2. I’m not sure if you call that a rivalry if someone beats you every day 6-0 for 15 years.”After Saturday, there will be no more arguments in the Osaka household as a new star was born on the WTA circuit. MOST READ Born on October 16, 1997 in — appropriately — Osaka, Japan, she was still a year away from moving to the United States on a permanent basis.Her Haitian father Leonard met and married her mother Tamaki having decamped to Japan from New York where he had studied.Now based in Boca Raton, Florida, Osaka has dual Japanese-American citizenship.It’s a status that could help explain what her coach Sascha Bajin describes as her innocence.When Osaka performs media duties with her own national press, she takes questions in Japanese but replies in English, apologising for not knowing the appropriate word when she does resort to her mother tongue.ADVERTISEMENT Despite that she is careful not to be seen as disrespectful.‘Super-awesome’ Japan“When you go to Japan, everything is totally awesome and you’re having the time of your life,” she says.  “Every day you go out and you eat good food and stuff. “When I go to Japan, I don’t feel like I’m at home. I feel like it’s a super-awesome extended vacation that I don’t want to leave.”Despite being a relative rookie on tour, Osaka has developed into a big-stage player.Standing an impressive 1.80m (5ft 11in), she made her Grand Slam debut at the 2016 Australian Open, coming through qualifying to make the third round where it took former champion Victoria Azarenka to stop her.Current number one Simona Halep halted her progress at the French Open in the third round that year while at the US Open, she gave up a 5-1 lead in the final set to lose to Madison Keys, the player she beat to make Saturday’s final.Before this year’s trip to New York, she registered her best Slam run at the Australian Open in January where she made the last 16 and where Halep again proved her downfall.So, it wasn’t a surprise when her first WTA title came at one of the non-Slam’s grandest stages, the prestigious Indian Wells event. Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil And it made her the breakout star of the 2018 US Open where on Saturday she became first Japanese to win a Grand Slam title with a 6-2, 6-4 win over childhood idol Serena Williams in a controversial final.“It was always my dream to play Serena in the US Open finals,” she said before turning to the American on the trophy podium.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“I’m really grateful I was able to play with you, thank you.”Osaka wasn’t even two years old when Williams won the first of her six US Opens in 1999.

first_imgMagistrate Richard Browne of the Buchanan City Court in Grand Bassa County has, with probable cause, transferred a murder case to the Second Judicial Circuit Court in the county, following the ruling of the preliminary examination proceeding of the case last weekThe case was formally brought before the court for pre-trial proceeding on September 10 with the dependants Samuel Tarragban, James Reeves, Emmanuel Joludoe, Onegar Zangban, Philip Zeo, and Daniel Ben being charged with murder.At the call of the case, the state was represented by the Ministry of Justice through its prosecuting Attorneys with the Buchanan City Solicitor Isaac Yorcee and Buchanan Assistant City Solicitor Johnson Tukeh, in association with Grand Bassa County Attorney, Cllr. Onesimus Banwon.The county’s Public Defender, Cllr. Paul P. Jarvan represented the legal interest of the defendants.Following the representation, which the court granted, the state moved the court for a plea of nulli prosequio in favor of three of the defendants, Onegar Zangban, Daniel Ben and Philip Zeo, and the Public Defender interposed no objection.The court having granted same, gave an order to the clerk of the court, Samuel Bryant,  and he qualified and sequestrated the state witnesses in the persons of Onegar Zangban, Philip Zeo and Daniel Ben, as well as the Deputy CID Commander of the Grand Bassa County Police Detachment, John W. Toby.The state’s first witness, Onegar Zangban, testified that he met defendants Samuel Tarragban, James Reeves and Emmanuel Juludoe brutally killing Nimley Tarr in an old sugar cane farm near Pay’s Town in District #1, in Grand Bassa County, on August 10, 2014.He further explained that the prime defendants threatened to kill him should he expose the incident to anybody.The second state witness, CID Deputy Commander John W. Toby, in his testimony, narrated that during their preliminary interrogation, the missing man (Tarr) was on August 24, 2014  discovered dead in a sugar cane farm in Pay Toe’s Town in District #1, with the arm and heart missing.  He quoted the testimony of witness Onegar Zangban.In his ruling after the testimonies of the witnesses and arguments between the state prosecution and the defense lawyer, Magistrate Browne said murder is universally considered one of the greatest crimes against society.He reiterated that society must be protected by the law of the land and someone held for that crime must be for probable cause established, and where the evidence proven fails to meet the test, then the law will acquit the accused.According to Magistrate Brown, the state witnesses’ testimonies were reliable, trustworthy and corroborated with the coroner’s jury reports which linked in the proof of circumstantial, presumptive and positive evidence that built a solid chain of probable cause.He underscored that in view and wherefore the state had established probable cause that a crime was committed and the defendants committed murder, they are answerable at the Second Judicial Circuit Court in the county.Based upon his order, the Clerk of the court, Mr. Stephen Quahgar, has transmitted the record of the trial proceedings along with the defendants to the Second Judicial Circuit Court in Upper Buchanan for trial.Meanwhile, the clerk of the Circuit Court, Mr. Emmanuel Quergar, has acknowledged receipt of the records from the Buchanan City Court along with the defendants in question.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Govt failing “miserably” to honour campaign promises – former PM

first_imgBy Michael YoungeThe A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change (APNU-AFC) coalition Government is failing miserably to honour its campaign promises to the Guyanese electorate as it continues to perform poorly as far as governance, accountability, and transparency are concerned.Former President and Prime Minister, Samuel HindsThis is the position of former President and Prime Minister Samuel Hinds, who stressed that after three years in office, it was clear that the coalition was unable to fulfil many of the promises it had made on the campaign trail ahead of the May 2015 General and Regional Elections.“I think that the campaign was based on a lot of promises and accusations, which were just words…Maybe they didn’t know what to expect when they entered Government, but they haven’t delivered on their promises,” he said.Hinds also stated that the Government’s accusations of widespread People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) corruption were proving to be a fishing expedition as the coalition has been unable to substantiate claims in that respect with hard evidence.The former Prime Minister maintained that the coalition Government should seriously explore the idea of returning to the people for a new mandate in order to restore public confidence in its ability to govern and transform the country’s poorly-performing economy.“Even in areas where they have not performed any better (than the PPP), they should return to the polls to seek a new mandate. In fact, I think that people should demand that the coalition seeks a new mandate,” Hinds said on Friday during the exclusive interview.Asked whether he was concerned by the arguments and propositions put forward by several political and ethnic groupings that he was merely a token used by the PPP for window-dressing purposes, Hinds responded in the negative.He said while he could understand the sentiments being expressed, his career in public service coupled with his quiet yet effective work of representing Lindeners before and after he joined the PPP, spoke volumes about his accomplishments as Prime Minister and President of Guyana.Hinds, who was Donald Ramotar’s Prime Ministerial Candidate back in 2011, said that the Guyanese people were wise and intelligent, and they knew what he stood for as a public figure.He said that ultimately Guyanese were supportive of leaders who were hard workers and understanding as well as compassionate.Hinds’ statement comes on the heels of similar sentiments expressed by former Finance Minister Juan Edghill over the weekend which suggest that the Government is becoming desperate in its actions and attacks on the media, because it knows it is losing electorate support even though it continues to blow its own trumpet.Edghill, like Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, has pointed out that supporters of the coalition are becoming impatient, disillusioned and disconnected from the leadership of the coalition, which is finding itself in a series of controversies and scandals which have affected its reputation since coming to office in 2015.last_img read more

Don’t sentence teens to a lifetime in jail

first_imgTeenagers serving life sentences without the possibility of parole have been condemned to die in prison. It’s a death sentence without an executioner, it’s perilously close to cruel and usual punishment, and it simply shouldn’t be allowed. ? A report issued (earlier this month) by the Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative found that nationally, more than 2,225 juveniles, age 17 and younger, have received life without parole sentences. Of those, 73 were 13 or 14 – children by almost any measure – when they committed their crimes. ? Juveniles are barred from buying cigarettes or beer; they can’t enlist in the military and aren’t supposed to watch R-rated movies unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. And yet when they commit a serious crime, it’s as if they have morphed into adults for purposes of their punishment. ? The Supreme Court recognized all these differences when it barred the execution of juveniles, no matter the crime. But a mandatory life sentence without possibility of parole is just as fatal in its way, and should be prohibited for the same reasons. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gunners legend David Seaman worried by performance against Man City

first_img 2 2 Goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva claimed the three points for City, and Seaman doesn’t believe he saw much difference from Arsenal’s poor performances towards the end of Wenger’s reign.“I think we saw a lot of the same old Arsenal from last season,” the 54-year-old told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“We saw them a little bit disorganised at the back, I felt sorry for Maitland-Niles, he got isolated too much.“You’ve got Mahrez and Walker attacking him for fun and he didn’t really get backed up by any other defenders.” Seaman won three league titles at Arsenal, and is hoping Emery can guide the club back in the direction of their former glories.However he was particularly concerned by the way Arsenal struggled to adapt during their defeat to City.“The worrying thing was the game management.“Sometimes I feel like both full backs [were] really pushing on and that wouldn’t have happened in the old days. One of them would push on and the other one would drop back.“It was a bit worrying as to why people weren’t talking during the game. Just that game management was a little bit worrying.”Arsenal face another stern test in their second match of the season as they are set for a trip to Chelsea, who won 3-0 at Huddersfield in their opening game.

GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED DONEGAL CHILDREN – MAYOR HARVEY

first_imgThe Mayor of Donegal Cllr Cora Harvey has described as “disgraceful” the confirmation by the Taoiseach that the long promised constitutional referendum on Children’s Rights will not be held in 2011.Mayor Harvey said the referendum is already long overdue and described the new setback as “disgraceful.”“It is disgraceful that this Fine Gael/Labour Coalition is to further delay the long promised and long overdue constitutional referendum on the rights of children. “These parties played a key role in the Oireachtas committee which agreed a wording to strengthen the rights and protections of children in the Constitution,” she said.In its General Election manifesto the Labour Party stated  – ‘The delay in proceeding with the referendum on children’s rights is unacceptable. Labour will ensure that a children’s rights referendum is urgently progressed.’And in ts General Election manifesto Fine Gael stated – ‘As a priority Fine Gael will ensure children’s rights are strengthened through a Constitutional referendum.’However Mayor Harvey said the Government has so far failed children since coming onto office. “The Taoiseach has now stated that there will be three referendums held in the autumn but not the referendum to protect children. The Coalition has failed on children’s rights before they even reach 100 days in office. This regressive decision must be over-turned.”EndsGOVERNMENT HAS FAILED DONEGAL CHILDREN – MAYOR HARVEY was last modified: June 18th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Mayor Cora Harveylast_img read more
