The French Open will allow a maximum of 11,500 spectators per day to adhere to strict health protocols and curb the spread of COVID-19 when the Grand Slam begins later this month.The French Tennis Federation disclosed this on Monday. The French Open, traditionally held in May and June, was postponed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now be held at Roland Garros from September 27 to October 11.France has recorded nearly 31,000 deaths, according to a Reuters tally.The FFT said a maximum of 5,000 spectators per day would be allowed to watch matches at both the Philippe-Chatrier and Suzanne-Lenglen showcourts.It added that only 1,500 fans would be allowed at the smaller Simonne-Mathieu court.Seating arrangements would have a gap of one seat on each row and no more than four people can sit side-by-side while wearing masks would be mandatory for anyone over the age of 11. The qualifying rounds, which begin on September 21, will be held behind closed doors.The FFT had said in July it planned to allow up to 60 per cent of the usual number of fans.A record 520,000 spectators attended last year’s event, according to organisers.Rafa Nadal and Ash Barty, who both skipped the US Open in New York due to COVID-19 concerns, are expected to defend their titles at Roland Garros.Tournament officials said that all players must stay in one of two designated hotels “in order to respect the health and safety measures.” Serena Williams has opted to stay in private housing as she hunts for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title at the US Open.Williams said players should have the option to stay elsewhere if fans are attending matches.“I’m super conservative because I do have some serious health issues. So, I try to stay away from public places, because I have been in a really bad position in the hospital a few times,” she told reporters at Flushing Meadows after reaching the quarter-finals.Williams suffered blood clots and life-threatening pulmonary embolisms while giving birth to her daughter Olympia in 2017.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title “So I don’t want to end up in that position again,” she added. “For me, I try to keep a 12-foot distance instead of six.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: Alliance for Surviving COVID-19COVID-19FansFrench OpenRoland Garros
Press Association Twigline had looked a smart recruit when winning on her Irish bow at Fairyhouse before falling at Sandown and was an even-money favourite to get back on the winning trail in this Grade Three heat. The Mick Winters-trained Missunited was last seen finishing a fair fourth in the Red Mills Hurdle at Gowran, but was second best in the market at 11-8. Missunited edged out Twigline in a pulsating finish to the Kerry Group EBF Mares Novice Hurdle at Limerick. Barry Geraghty went for home first aboard Missunited, but Ruby Walsh covered his move and Twigline took a narrow lead jumping the final obstacle. It was nip and tuck all the way up the run-in, but Missunited won the argument by half a length. Winters said: “It was a ding-dong battle between two top men and there was no quarter given. “She jumped fantastic during the week and again here. “I was more confident early in the week but the ground was terrible and she will be better on better ground. “She will be entered in a Grade One at Fairyhouse and then Punchestown as well.”
For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar’s contribution to the game of cricket has been immense during his 24-year playing career. From his debut in 1989 to his final Test in 2013, Tendulkar was the acknowledged gold standard of batting in ODIs and Tests. Tendulkar is the leading run-getter in both ODIs and Tests and he is the only player in history to have 100 international tons. With 18426 ODI runs and 15921 runs in Tests, Tendulkar is a legend on the field. Off the field, he continues to being a mentor to youngsters and he has also given his input on the state of the game and the challenges that it faces.In an exclusive chat with Hindustan Times, Tendulkar has outlined that the standard of Test cricket has dropped due to the lack of rivalries and that is the biggest challenge that the longest format of the game is facing. “If you start looking at recent Test records, with very few can you say they are strong teams. It is alarming without any doubt. The standard of play has dropped and we can see that. Something needs to be done about it,” Tendulkar told Hindustan Times. Tendulkar had stressed the need for big rivalries in order to make Test cricket exciting during the Hindustan Times 2017 Leadership summit.In that interaction, he had said, “Test cricket is not dying. People’s mindsets have changed. It’s about the big rivalries. There was a time when everyone wanted to beat West Indies. Later, it was Australia. They had nine world class players and two terrific players. If three-four of their players clicked and did the job, they would win.”However, Tendulkar has expressed concern abot the ODI game, stating that monotony had set in the game and that was the main reason he had proposed the 25-25 formula. In that, he had suggested a team would have batted 25 overs, then the opposition would have batted 25 overs. Tendulkar cleared the misconception that he was talking about mini-Test cricket with 20 wickets.Also Read | This Woman Cricketer Breaks Sachin Tendulkar’s 30-Year-Old World Record, India Thrash West Indies”There is monotony in the one-day game without doubt. That is why I made the proposal; to remove monotony and more to neutralise the dew factor advantage. Should world events be spaced out? Are there are too many of them? There are many venues where dew is a decisive factor. In the current format, toss basically decides who will win, unless one team is playing terrible cricket. If you bat second and sensibly, the bowlers have very limited chance with the wet ball. There one side has full advantage because they have won the toss and bowled in dry conditions. The other side has to fight the opposition as well as the conditions. How do we neutralise that? In 25-25, the side bowling first will get to bowl third, so they will also bowl under lights in the second half but there will be less dew,” Tendulkar said.
The Interfraternity Council has placed sanctions on the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity after a person associated with the organization was transported to a local hospital on Aug. 29.The transport, which occurred at 12:47 a.m. on Saturday morning according to the Department of Public Safety incident log, directly violated the Greek recruitment moratorium period, which effectively bans alcohol consumption until the end of the recruitment periods.“Sigma Alpha Mu will not be permitted to participate in Spring recruitment, and they will not be permitted to hold any internal or external social events for six weeks with the exception of service-oriented, philanthropic projects,” said Jake Simon, president of the IFC. “Furthermore, they will need to work with their national organization to restructure their new member program to reflect the values of our council and their national organization.”The IFC Judicial Board decided upon the terms of the sanctions.Simon said the sanctions will act as a reminder toward the code greek organizations should follow.“The sanctions are intended to be educational and reinforce the policies that strengthen our community and member chapters,” Simon said. “We expect that Sigma Alpha Mu will respond by improving their practices, ultimately strengthening their chapter and serving as a positive representation of our council.”Representatives from Sigma Alpha Mu could not be reached for comment.
Stephen Carr | Daily TrojanStanding at 6 feet and weighing 210 pounds, running back Stephen Carr sure doesn’t look like a freshman. As we’ve learned the past two weeks, he doesn’t play like one either. A four-star recruit from Summit High School in Fontana, Calif., Carr turned heads in his first two games in a USC uniform. Carr ran for 188 yards on 18 carries while also picking up 41 yards in the receiving game. “Explosiveness”: That’s the word that comes to head coach Clay Helton’s mind when talking about the freshman running back. When the Trojans held a narrow 35-31 lead over Western Michigan with three minutes to go in the game, USC was looking to move the chains and eat up some time. Carr had other plans, breaking off a 52-yard run that all but ended the game. Carr’s big play ability has been evident, with a 52-yard run in each of the first two games. “Every time he touches the ball, you kind of hold your breath,” Helton said.The transition from high school football to the college game is substantial. Many recruits get lost once they’re forced to learn more concepts and fundamentals. To Carr, the biggest change has been in the speed of the game and the Xs and Os. “It’s much faster up here and you have to make sure you’re on your stuff every play,” Carr said. “It’s not like high school where, because you’re an elite athlete, you get that little room to relax a little bit. Up here, you have to be on every snap.”After arriving on campus, Carr has put in the work, and offensive coordinator Tee Martin believes it’s paying off. Helped by teammates such as junior running back Ronald Jones II, Carr has quickly caught up to the NCAA level of competitive edge. It was a surprise to Martin and the other coaches to see a young player adapt so quickly, but once Carr showed his promise in practice, the coaching staff felt comfortable trusting him in game situations.“He’s doing a real good job as a true freshman to understand our protections, run schemes, footwork and eyes,” Martin said. “It wasn’t a surprise with how he’s playing in games because he’s been doing it consistently in practice.”Carr has made the most of the reps he’s gotten in practice. He bought into the program’s intensity immediately, a mentality that Carr believes is part of the reason he’s been able to contribute so early. The Trojans emphasize attacking at full speed on every play, and that pressure to finish plays and push at a high pace prepared Carr in the offseason to perform at his current level.As other highly touted recruits around the country are working hard to see the field, Carr is already looking like an integral part of USC’s offense. His ability to push through tackles — a theme for this year’s backfield — has paid off as well.“I think some people think of him as kind of a scat back, but when they get up on him and try to hit him they’re bouncing off him,” Martin said. “When you look at his yards after contact, they’re right up there with the best. He’s a complete back.”As far as what Carr’s ceiling is, it’s too early to say. But despite his talent, running backs coach Deland McCullough thinks it is important to keep young athletes levelheaded as their star begins to rise. “He’s pretty doggone good,” McCullough said. “But again, I continue to keep them grounded. I’ve told them ‘I’ve coached guys who have sat in your same seat, I sat in your seat, and we’ve had some success playing the game.’ But as soon as you start hearing how good you are and all these different things like that, you could be setting yourself up for failure.”Carr has had a best-case-scenario start to the 2017 season, but the Trojans have only played two games, and there’s much more work to do. Helton hopes to see him grow in his ability to protect the pass. McCullough wants to build both his confidence and his calmness in big-game situations. But both coaches have one way to describe Carr’s talent: special. For the rest of the season, Carr’s goals are simple: to make the most of every opportunity. He’s made a splash in his first two weeks, but the work is only getting started for No. 7.
