Jets WR Crowder surprise inactive vs. Patriots

Published in Breaking News
Sunday, 19 September 2021 10:07

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a surprise roster move, New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder was declared inactive Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Crowder was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and returned to practice Thursday and said Friday that he expected to play in the Jets' home opener.

He has been battling a nagging groin injury from training camp, although he said the injury wouldn't have prevented him from playing last week. It was the positive COVID-19 test that kept him out of the opener against the Carolina Panthers.

In another notable move at wide receiver, Denzel Mims -- a 2020 second-round draft pick -- was a healthy scratch Sunday. This wasn't a surprise, considering his lack of practice reps and place on the depth chart, but it raises questions about Mims' standing with the team.

The Jets are going with Corey Davis, rookie Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios as their top three receivers, with Keelan Cole and Jeff Smith in reserve.

Another healthy scratch is running back La'Mical Perine, a 2020 fourth-round pick. Only one of nine picks from the 2020 draft is active for the game: cornerback Bryce Hall.

Blue Jays put lefty Ryu on IL with neck tightness

Published in Baseball
Sunday, 19 September 2021 10:08

The Toronto Blue Jays placed left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu on the 10-day injured list Sunday with neck tightness.

General manager Ross Atkins told reporters he is hopeful Ryu misses just one start. Atkins said Ryu woke up with the tight neck on Saturday, the day after his last start, against the Minnesota Twins, when he took the loss after giving up five earned runs and two home runs in just two innings pitched.

Ryu (13-9) is tied for the team lead in victories.

The Blue Jays enter Sunday's games with a half-game lead over the New York Yankees for the second wild-card spot.

Successful the previous day, partnering colleague Maksim Kaburkin to mixed doubles gold in opposition to Uzbekistan’s Mukhammad Uktambor and Sugdiyona Madalieva (11-2, 11-5, 11-9), on the concluding day of action, Valeria Kotcyur added the women’s doubles title in harness with Valeria Shcherbatykh, prior to reserving the top step of the women’s singles podium.

After accounting Kazakhstan’s Aiya Alimbayeva (8-11, 11-3, 11-6, 11-7, 11-8), Valeria Kotcyur secured the women’s singles title at the final expense of compatriot Ekaterina Okhotnikova (11-7, 12-14, 9-11, 11-8, 11-5, 11-6).

In the adjacent semi-final, Ekaterina Okhotnikova had beaten Valeria Shcherbatykh (11-8, 11-9, 6-11, 11-7, 11-9).

Success against a colleague, in the women’s doubles, it was success in opposition to Indian adversaries; in the final Valeria Kotcyur and Valeria Shcherbatykh overcame Kaushani Nath and Prapti Sen (10-12, 11-4, 11-6, 9-11, 11-6).

Two titles

Three titles for Valeria Kotcyur, for Kirill Gerassimenko it was two in number.

He partnered Alan Kurmangaliyev to success against Saudi Arabia’s Ali Alkhadrawi and Abdulaziz Bu Shulaybi (11-6, 11-8, 11-4), prior to securing men’s singles gold at the expense of India’s Snehit Suravajjula (11-8, 11-9, 11-3, 9-11, 11-6).

Earlier Kirill Gerassimenko had beaten Saudi Arabia’s Naif Al-Jadi (11-5, 11-6, 11-6, 11-6), Snehit Suravajjula, who had been required to compete in the qualification stage, had ousted Pavel Platonov of Belarus (11-5, 11-3, 11-5, 6-11, 11-8).

Overall, a total of 44 men and 31 women competed in Karaganda.

Koeman doesn't fear sack at Barca amid rumours

Published in Soccer
Sunday, 19 September 2021 09:14

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said he doesn't fear the sack amid renewed speculation about his future following the 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

President Joan Laporta asked Koeman for a "period of reflection" in the summer before eventually deciding to stick with him for the new season.

- Lowe: Barcelona's decline is not a surprise

However, tension has arisen between the two following a back-and-forth in the media in recent weeks, with the Bayern loss serving to increase the pressure on Koeman.

"There have been a lot of changes to the team, players are out injured and we're playing a lot of youngsters," Koeman said in a news conference on Sunday when asked if he deserved more time.

"People who know that would surely say that we're going through a change and that you need time, but what matters is winning games.

"There were questions before playing Bayern about renewing my contract. We lose 3-0 and now the questions are if I fear for my future. I don't think it's normal.

"We're confident we can win games, there's a long way to go. I know that results count. I don't fear for my future. At the end of the day, the club and the president make the decisions."

Koeman is out of contract next summer. Vice president Eduard Romeu has said firing him before then has not been discussed but denied that money would be a problem if the club did want to sack the coach.

However, sources have told ESPN that while Barca could afford to pay Koeman's contract off, the lack of alternatives available is weighing in the 58-year-old's favour.

"Everyone is free to express their opinion," Koeman added when asked if he felt there was a campaign against him.

"I'm sure there are people for and against Ronald Koeman. I don't speak, they speak. There are people that want me to continue and others who think Barca should look for someone else. I can't change that."

Barca, who have seven points from their first three LaLiga games, return to league action on Monday, when they host Granada at Camp Nou.

Pedri and Jordi Alba will both miss the game after picking up injuries in the loss to Bayern, joining Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Aguero on the sidelines.

Koeman said he has no problem replacing Pedri and Alba with Gavi (17) and Alejandro Balde (18), but said it would not be good for the youngsters if he started the game with five or six of them.

Ansu, meanwhile, is set for a return to action in the coming weeks following 10 months out with a meniscus injury in his knee.

"I am not going to name a date for his return, but he's working hard," Koeman said. "It's about waiting for the right moment. It could be a week; it could be 10 days.

"We know we're short in attack and it will be important to have Ansu back. We're talking about a great player. Despite his age, he's shown his quality already, scoring a lot of goals start of last season."

Wasim Khan, the PCB chief executive, has claimed a "clean bill of health from a security perspective", adding that he expects England - the men, for two T20Is, and the women, for two T20Is and three ODIs - to reach Pakistan on schedule in October and play their games on the due dates.

"England are meeting today to make a decision on whether they will tour Pakistan or not," Wasim said in a virtual press conference today. "We know what the guidance is, we know from a security perspective there's a clean bill of health. We certainly hope England tour. We certainly believe they should be coming and hope they will be coming, based on what the competent authority in Islamabad and the security expert (ESI Security) is saying.

"The same security expert who provided the guidance for the ECB to go to Bangladesh, six weeks after the bomb blast that killed 12 people [in 2016] - so there's a lot of trust put into this security expert who is understood and respected around the world. We certainly hope when the board meets, the ECB will decide to send their team to Pakistan for this short tour."

Wasim was critical of New Zealand's "disrespectful" decision to leave Pakistan because of security concerns, saying that they had left "at the drop of a hat and leaving us to pick up the pieces", but struck a more measured tone when speaking about England.

He pointed out that neither England, nor any of Australia, Canada or the USA - the countries alongside New Zealand that make up the Five Eyes intelligence network that Wasim said had tipped off New Zealand about a perceived threat - had changed their travel advisories to Pakistan in the previous few days. Besides, there was no indication of any dissatisfaction with the security arrangements Pakistan plans to have in place for the visiting England sides.

"The travel advisory is an indicator of threat levels. Most of the Western embassies across the world use the travel advisory as an indicator of where the threat levels are," Wasim said. "The advisory has not changed from the UK government, nor from Australia, Canada and the US. There was no security breach [with the New Zealand tour]; the tour was abandoned because of a perceived threat.

"In terms of what is in place, ultimately the ECB board will make a decision. There are two elements any board looks at. One is the advisory a government has for citizens of their nation going to any country. Secondly, it's around the security provision that is put in place directly for the team. Both of those angles we've been told there's a clean bill of health and there's confidence on both sides. But ultimately, the decision is the ECB board's, and we'll have to wait and see."

The hole New Zealand's withdrawal has left in the schedule for Pakistan has also led the PCB to reach out to other boards, but it's unlikely to lead to anything concrete. "The PCB contacted Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to tour Pakistan, and there was a strong willingness from both to come and play," Wasim said. "Unfortunately, there's very short notice, and the Bangladesh players are dispersed around the country. The Sri Lanka squad are going to Oman fairly soon. So it's not possible in this timeframe to put anything in place for us."

Moreover, both impressed; on the concluding day of action, neither needed to experience the agony of a deciding fifth game.

After accounting for the Dominican Republic’s surprise semi-finalist, qualifier Eduardo Darley (11-5, 11-3, 11-8), Leonardo Kenzo overcame Puerto Rico’s Derek Valentin, the no.4 seed, to arrest the title (12-10, 11-2, 12-10).

A most worthy win against the Puerto Rican, Derek Valentin was a player in form; in the penultimate round he had ousted Nandan Naresh of the United States, the no.2 seed (11-9, 11-8, 11-8).

The win recorded by Derek Valentin had an added significance; it was to mean the United States did not complete a clean sweep of under 15 titles, it was the only gold to prove elusive.

Overcame top names

Most impressive from Leonardo Kenzo, it was the same from Sarah Jalli in an event where the United States provided all four semi-finalists.

Significantly, Sarah Jalli ended the hopes of the top names; at the semi-final stage she beat Faith Hu, the no.2 seed (11-7, 11-9, 11-9), in the final Emily Tan, the top seed (9-11, 11-4, 13-11, 11-4).

In the opposite half of the draw, Emily Tan had overcome Sally Moyland, like Sarah Jalli, a qualifier (11-7, 11-8, 5-11, 6-11, 11-9).

More gold

Gold for the United States, in the under 15 age group there was more gold, Sarah Jalli falling just one step short of a full house.

She partnered Sally Moyland to girls’ doubles success against Canada’s Demi Cai and Fu Ching Nam (11-9, 11-9, 11-8) but in the mixed doubles, in harness with Nandan Naresh, had to settle for silver.

In the final they experienced defeat at the hands of colleagues, Daniel Tran and Sally Moyland (11-8, 11-3, 11-8).

The top step of the podium for Daniel Tran; it was the same in the boys’ doubles; in the final he partnered Nandan Naresh to success against Derek Valentin and Puerto Rican colleague, José Nieves (11-9, 11-7, 12-10).

Notably in the under 15 events the girls outnumbered the boys, 34 girls, 20 boys.

The performance of the day, month, year, and decade belonged to Rachel Sung.

Occupying the no.2 seeded position, at the final hurdle, she recovered from a three games to nil deficit to beat colleague, Amy Wang, the top seed, eventually succeeding in a titanic seventh game (6-11, 8-11, 10-12, 11-3, 11-5, 11-5, 16-14).

Earlier at the semi-final stage, Rachel Sung had overcome Mexico’s Clio Barcenas, the no.4 seed (11-8, 11-3, 11-7, 11-9); Amy Wang had accounted for Brazil’s Giulia Takahashi, the no.3 seed (11-4, 11-9, 11-8, 11-9).

Similar scenario

Drama, it was the same for Angel Naranjo, the top seed, but one round earlier.

He needed the full seven games to overcome Canada’s Edward Ly, the no.4 seed, emerging successful by the very narrowest of decisions (11-4, 11-4, 8-11, 10-12, 4-11, 11-6, 12-10).

A place in the final reserved, he caused Canada further pain by overcoming Terence Yeung, the no.5 seed (11-7, 8-11, 14-12, 14-12, 7-11, 11-4). In the counterpart semi-final, Terence Yeung had ousted Peru’s Carlos Fernandez, the no.2 seed (14-12, 11-5, 11-7, 15-17, 11-5).

Success for Mexico

Success for Puerto Rico and the United States, in the under 19 age group there was also success for Mexico.

Dario Arce and Clio Barcenas were the players in form.

Together they won the mixed doubles accounting for Canada’s Edward Ly and Clio Barcenas in the final (13-11, 11-3, 7-11, 11-4); apart Dario Arce partnered  Juan Jesus Gomez to boys’ doubles gold, Clio Barcenas joined forces with Arantxa Cossio to gain girls’ doubles success.

In the title deciding contests, Dario Arce and Juan Jesus Gomez beat Brazil’s Kenzo Carmo and Diogo Silva (7-11, 9-11, 11-8, 11-6, 11-6); Clio Barcenas and Arantxa Cossio accounted for Joanna Sung and Rachel Sung (5-11, 11-8, 12-10, 11-8).

A total of 32 players competed in each of boys’ and girls’ events in the under 19 age group.

Emmanuel Lebesson, the no.13 seed, after recording a first round win against Austria’s Robert Gardos, the no.7 seed (11-13, 11-5, 8-11, 11-7, 11-7, 14-12), caused a major quarter-final upset by overcoming England’s Liam Pitchford, the no.2 seed (11-5, 11-7, 10-12, 11-5, 10-12, 12-10).

In the penultimate round, Emmanuel Lebesson faces Portugal’s Marcos Freitas, the no.5 seed; in the opposite half of the draw, Sweden’s Mattias Falck, the top seed, opposes Germany’s Patrick Franziska, the no.3 seed.

Monumental

En route to the last four, Mattias Falck accounted for Slovakia’s Wang Yang, the no.11 seed (11-7, 17-15, 14-12, 12-10), prior to ousting Slovenia’s Darko Jorgic, the no.6 seed (11-8, 11-5, 5-11, 12-10, 11-5).

Imposing from Mattias Falck, for Patrick Franziska it was monumental. In the opening round he overcame Austria’s Daniel Habesohn, the no.14 seed, in a contest decided by a quite stupendous seventh game (11-8, 5-11, 7-11, 11-7, 4-11, 11-9, 19-17)!

Success against Daniel Habesohn, at the quarter-final stage it was less exacting in opposition to colleague, Ruwen Filus, the no.12 seed; Patrick Franziska prevailed in five games (9-11, 11-7, 11-7, 11-6, 11-5).

Testing times for Patrick Franziska, it was little different for Marcos Freitas, the no.5 seed.

He recorded an opening round win against Denmark’s Jonathan Groth, the no.9 seed (11-13, 11-5, 8-11, 11-7, 11-7, 14-12), prior to ousting Frenchman, Simon Gauzy, the no.4 seed (12-10, 10-12, 13-11, 10-12, 11-9, 8-11, 11-3).

Bygone era

Meanwhile, in the women’s event, at the semi-final stage Fu Yu confronts Romania’s Bernadette Szocs, Germany’s Nina Mittelham opposes the Czech Republic’s Hana Matelova.

A battle of the penholders from a bygone era, in the opening round Fu Yu, the no.11 seed, beat Luxembourg’s Ni Xialian, the no.6 seed (11-7, 11-8, 9-11, 11-8, 9-11, 11-9), before overcoming Hungary’s Dora Madarasz, the no.14 seed (11-4, 11-8, 11-8, 14-12).

Similarly, Nina Mittelham, the no.5 seed and Hana Matelova, the no.9 seed, upset the order of merit.

After accounting for Slovakia’s Barbora Balazova, the no.10 seed, Nina Mittelham ended the hopes of Austria’s Sofia Polcanova, the top seed (11-3, 11-7, 8-11, 13-11, 11-8).

Likewise, Hana Matelova overcame Romania’s Elizabeta Samara, the no.4 seed (11-8, 11-8, 11-6, 12-14, 11-8), prior to posting a quarter-final win against Hungary’s Dora Madarasz, the no.14 seed (11-4, 11-8, 11-8, 14-12).

Anticipated

Surprise semi-finalists but there was one as anticipated.

Bernadette Szocs, the no.2 seed, beat Russia’s Yana Noskova, the no.12 seed (11-9, 13-11, 11-13, 11-6, 11-7) followed by Ukraine’s Ganna Gaponova (11-4, 13-11, 11-2, 4-11, 11-9) to reach the last four.

Play concludes in Thessaloniki on Sunday 19th September.
