That is some drop shot from Berrettini. He’s playing so well. Alcaraz just couldn’t reach it and we go to deuce. Lovely tennis. 2m ago 13.19 EDT Alcaraz is definitely getting the read of Berrettini’s serve. They’re locked at 30-30 but it feels that the No 1 see is reading his first serve and getting on top of his second. He’s now 30-40 up after Berrettini over cooks a booming inside out forehand. 6m ago 13.15 EDT Dimitrov has broken Rune and now leads 4-2 . The 21st ranked Bulgarian is taking control of this match. He’s got the No. 6 Dane on the ropes after winning the first set 6-3. 10m ago 13.12 EDT Berrettini holds and has a bounce in his step. Alcaraz sends the return long so the Italian leads 3-2. But Alcaraz is getting a good sight of his serve. I think a break is forming over the horizon. 11m ago 13.10 EDT Backhand slam! Berrettini is here to play. That doubler backhand winner into the corner had smoke on it. Alcaraz then fails to clear the net to give the Italian a 40-15 lead. But the Spaniard holds his balance to send a backhand of his own screaming down the line. He then gets it it deuce. Cracking Tennis from both men. 16m ago 13.06 EDT Game Alcaraz. A love game as Berrettini’s back hand slice hits the net. 2-2 in the first. 16m ago 13.06 EDT Berrettini suited to grass. So say the commentators who point out that the Italian’s serve kicks off the skidding surface and makes life tricky for the opposition. He’s just fallen victim though to a delicious drop from Alcaraz. The Spaniard is 40-0 up. 18m ago 13.04 EDT Thanks Dan! Another Dan here. Silky Alcaraz versus the upstart Berrettini. Can the Italian shake off the disappointment from last year? He’s just gone 2-1 up in the first set and I’m all in. 21m ago 13.00 EDT Rune holds to love in the opening game of set two, and with that, my watch is over. Here’s Daniel Gallan to coax you through the remainder of the day – thanks all for your company and comments. Peace. A lunging Holger Rune returns a shot to Grigor Dimitrov. Photograph: Kirsty Wigglesworth/AP Updated at 13.08 EDT 24m ago 12.58 EDT Berrettini and Alcaraz are away, the former holding in game one. It’s so great to see him back – I can’t for a second imagine the frustration of being an injured sportsman – but it’s hard to see how he can win today, or any major, without growing himself a drive backhand. Every other aspect is in place, but if that one isn’t by now, it seems unlikely it’s going to be. 26m ago 12.56 EDT Ruen makesd 15-40, frames a return and running in for it Dimitrov slips … gets up and makes a fine backhand volley! Superbly done! A service winner follows, but on advantage comes another terrific rally, ended when Rune lays a drop and Dimitrov nets. These two are really bringing the best out of each other, the Dane saving a second with point with a soft-handed volley. But then he nets and that’s the first set 6-3, Dimitrov playing the biggest points better; I can’t wait to see what happens next because that was excellent - those nine games took 54 minutes. 33m ago 12.49 EDT “What do you get if you cross a tennis player with a four cornered garment?” responds Jake Bundy. “Surely the answer is Poncho Gonzales?” Ha! I don’rt think a poncho is mandatorily four-cornered, but. 36m ago 12.46 EDT How often do we see that? One player fails to break, then other does break, Dimitrov making 15-40 and going long, then slipping … but it doesn’t matter because Rune goes long. Babyfed leads 5-3 and will now serve for set one. 39m ago 12.43 EDT Matteo 🥺 "I spent many days in bed, crying about not being able to play." #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/RTcIq9thK4 — BBC Sport (@BBCSport) July 9, 2023 39m ago 12.42 EDT Here come Alcaraz and Berrettini… 41m ago 12.41 EDT Dimitrov annihilates down an ace, and that’s a massive hold for 4-3 in the first. However it’s worth noting that Rune, who’s not played much on grass, looks better acclimatised than both Medvedev and Tsitsipas. I’m not saying he’s better than either at this point, but I do think he will be before very long. 43m ago 12.39 EDT At 3-3, Dimitrov saves two break points, then up advantage again, Rune plays a fine volley … which the Bulgarian chases down to sprit a winner down the line! Then our commentator, praising the kick serve with which he makes advantage, tells us that 20 years ago, that wasn’t possible, it was just slice, but the thicker grass has changed the game. I dare him to tell Stefan Edberg that. Anyhow, we go back and fourth through deuce – Dimitrov saves three break points – and we’ve been going almost 10 minutes in the game. Despite a slip, Grigor Dimitrov manages to return a shot to Holger Rune. Photograph: Dylan Martinez/Reuters Updated at 13.07 EDT 45m ago 12.37 EDT Next on Centre: Carlos Alcaraz [1] v Matteo Berrettini. 50m ago 12.31 EDT Jabeur says she respects what Kvitova has done for women’s tennis and beating her is huge . When she won the first set she told herself that was the start of the match because she knows you can take a 6-0 set off Kvitova then lost one by the same score. Rishi then tells her she has great support because she’s so nice, and she explains that she’s really grateful for it and hopes the crowd remember when she meets Rybakina. She wants her revenge for last term’s final, and I urge you not to miss it. 55m ago 12.27 EDT Ons Jabeur [6] beats Petra Kvitova [9] 6-0 6-3! Jabeur greets Kvitova and the umpire then performs her leaping celebration. She meets Rybakina next in a repeat of last year’s final, and that match should be exceedingly serious. Ons Jabeur made short work of her match with Petra Kvitova. Photograph: Tom Jenkins/The Guardian Updated at 12.36 EDT 1h ago 12.26 EDT Oh that’s lovely! Down 0-30, Kvitova tries a drop, but Jabeur runs in to lift her riposte down the line and into the corner, raising three match points. This is an absolute hiding. 1h ago 12.23 EDT Jabeur holds easily for 6-0 5-3 and is a game away from another quarter-final. 1h ago 12.22 EDT This Dimitrov v Rune match is shaping up – it’s a really good contest so far with the Bulgarian, who has the edge in guile, leading the Dane, who has the edge in power, 3-2 on serve. And on Centre, Kvitova has taken back a break so Jabeur leads her 6-0 4-3. 1h ago 12.19 EDT “So disappointed by the BBC coverage of Eubanks,” says Kavya McLoughlin. “I heard a commentator the other day suggest that Eubanks’ run was over after his third-round win. And today during the match the commentary was elitist and patronising. They clearly were expecting him to lose and kept talking about his background without explaining why it was that he was continually toe-to-toe with Tsitsipas. They should stick to commenting on the actual play instead of the narrative around it.” I said yesterday that of all the sports I watch, the one that has most work to do in terms of the sophistication of its coverage is tennis, which ignores so much tactical and strategic complexity. I was watching three matches during Eubanks v Tsitsipas so didn’t notice the commentary, although I did learn off the radio that he’s been working as an analyst Tennis TV and thinks he’s become a better player as a consequence. 1h ago 12.15 EDT “Tsitsipas is a bit soft to be a real killer,” reckons James W. “Very nice hair. Very nice backhand. Good on clay. Just doesn’t have what it takes to win a slam. And with Alcaraz improving at his current rate, I don’t see that changing in a hurry. Also, hashtag karma for knocking out Andy Murray in Murray’s best form coming into the tournament in years. That match was decided on such fine margins with Murray’s serve not broken till the final set and the same happened today. It’s just Eubanks got all those fine margins this time.” I agree and disagree here. I don’t think Tsitsipas lacks the ruthlessness of a killer but do think his game has holes. His backhand is nice, as you say, but it isn’t good, and it’s hard to see him beating either Alcaraz or Djokovic in a major and it seems unlikely he can win one without doing that. 1h ago 12.12 EDT Jabeur breaks again and Kvitova, who – inexplicably in mine – was favourite for this match, can’t get near her. She leads 6-0 4-1. 1h ago 12.11 EDT What do you get if you cross a tennis player with a four-cornered garment? Stefanos Tsitsit pas. 1h ago 12.10 EDT “Can’t say I agree that Tsitsipas dominated the match,” writes John Graham. “Eubanks was always in it and deserved the win. He’ll be the crowd favourite to beat Medvedev, that’s for sure, great on court personality too.” Eubanks sort of said it himself afterwards – he won because he managed to win the key moments – and two of those were Tsitsipas doubles. Of course he deserved to progress – there’s a metric devised for measuring that precise aspect known as the score – but in terms of general play, you could see why one is five in the world and one is 43. 1h ago 12.06 EDT Dimitrov serves an ace at 40-15, i t’s called out, and he opts not to challenge – an error as it was in. Shortly afterwards, he’s down advantage, saving the situation with a service winner down the middle before prevailing in a net exchange. He leads Rune 1-0 while Jabeur consolidates for 6-0 3-1. 1h ago 12.04 EDT Serving at 3o-40, Kvitova thinks she’s made deuce when a Jabeur backhand is called out. But a challenge shows it was in, just, a double follows – Kvitova’s fourth of the match – and that’s the break! This is five to over now, and not the match I was expecting or hoping for. Jabeur 6-0 2-1 Kvitova 1h ago 11.59 EDT On No1, Dimitrov and Rune are almost ready to go while, on Centre, Kvitova tries to settle herself, holding at the start of set two before Jabeur does likewise. Kvitova shows her frustration. Photograph: Tom Jenkins/The Guardian Updated at 12.27 EDT 1h ago 11.54 EDT Two things I learnt while breaking: 1) Hubert Hurkacz likes to go as “Huby” and 2) Novak Djokovic had a haircut just before he went onto court. No wonder he lost the first set of the day, he must’ve been itchy as hell. 1h ago 11.52 EDT Thanks Dominic and hi again. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a player as totally tennised as Tsitsipas there. By which I mean he dominated that match, but a point lost here and there – kept Eubanks in it, so he was still around to hit a seam in the decider. That double in the second-set tiebreak will, I’m certain, stay with him a while, and his quest for debut major – unlikely top be this one, in fairness – continues. 2h ago 11.48 EDT A slight interlude in proceedings on the main courts, then, and a perfect chance to hand back over to Daniel Harris. You haven’t missed much, Dan … 2h ago 11.46 EDT Jabeur takes the first set 6-0 against Kvitova. It took little more than 20 minutes. The two-time champion has some serious thinking to do. Ons Jabeur doing her best to hurry along the schedul Photograph: Tom Jenkins/The Guardian Updated at 12.26 EDT 2h ago 11.44 EDT An email from Johan Denis on Eubanks: 2 days ago I wrote your colleague Sarah Rendell a message at the beginning of the match between Eubanks and O’Connell. I wrote I wouldn’t be surprised to see him beat Tsitsipas. But to be honest... I would bet against him now! Guess Medvedev is really focused to go further here and will be able to make the semis. And recently he had an encounter with Eubanks and he will not underestimate the guy. But anyway... what a tournament Eubanks has had so far.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
