Australia Open 2020: Kyrgios face Nadal after a marathon

The naughty player of the host country Nick Kyrgios (23) will have a confrontation considered a blockbuster with Rafael Nadal (Spain) after overcoming Karen Khachanov (Russia, 16) in round 3 with 3-2 after 4 hours 26 minutes on the 25th of January.

Under the enthusiastic support of the audience in Australia, Kyrgios and Khachanov created a match that is considered worth watching in the history of the felt ball village. In this match, after super-stirring Kyrgios got the first two games with the score 6/2 and 7/6. However, in the next two games, the Russian player with a determined spirit of play was removed in both series of tie-break wins.

The two continued to get the audience back when it was time for another fourth tie-break series. With his mischievousness and the enthusiastic cheering of the home audience, super rebellious had a victory with an extra score of 10/8 to win tickets to round 4. After the match, Kyrgios said that was crazy, and he didn’t even know what to say right then. He had no words to describe how he felt right then.

With this victory, Kyrgios will face Nadal in round 4, who also surpassed compatriot Pablo Carreno Busta (27) with a score of 3-0. The matches between Nadal and Kyrgios are always attractive and there are events that cost a lot of paper for the press. In the history of the previous confrontation, Nadal has won 4 matches and lost 3 matches against Kyrgios.

Other seeds in this division include Daniil Medvedev (Russia, 4), Dominic Thiem (Austria, 5), Alexander Zverev (Germany, 7), Gael Monfils (France, 10), Stan Wawrinka (Switzerland, 15) or Andrey Rublev (Russia, 17) also had victories to enter round 4. Certainly, this will be a very difficult branch for Nadal on the way to the Australian Open finals this year.

In the women’s singles, surprises occurred when the strong seeds of this match such as Karolina Pliskova (the Czech Republic, 2), Elina Svitolina (Ukraine, 5) and Belinda Bencic (Switzerland, 6) had easily losing matches. These failures will make this branch more attractive and the opportunity to equally divide the remaining players. However, the former two Grand Slam champions Angelique Kerber (Germany, 17) or Garbine Muguruza (Spain, 32) are still more highly valued for their war experience.

Messi takes Barcelona ahead of Atletico Madrid

Superstar Lionel Messi gave a big boost to his hopes of defending Barcelona’s La Liga title with a late goal in a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the 15th round of La Liga.

Messi is said to be the one who will win the 6th Golden Ball award at the awards ceremony in Paris and the Spanish superstar has proved no doubt about his talent with a goal. Help Barca leave the Wanda Metropolitano with 3 points. “In fierce matches, having Leo is always a great advantage. It is most important that the three points have greatly boosted morale before entering the Christmas season”, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said of his beloved pupil.

Messi’s goal came in the 86th minute after Luis Suarez’s assist to bring Barcelona back to the top of the table when Real Madrid was over goals-lost difference (the two teams had 31 points). Meanwhile, the defeat has forced Atletico Madrid to be more arduous in the race for the highest throne La Liga fell behind with 6 points less but played more than 1 match. Messi’s shine warmed up the “Super Classics” match with Real Madrid at the Nou Camp on December 18.

Antoine Griezmann was whistled when he returned to his former club after he had just left to join Barcelona for 120 million euros this season. However, every reaction of Atletico Madrid fans was overshadowed by Messi’s name when the superstar scored the 12th goal of the season and the 6th in the last 5 matches. More specifically, Messi continues to become a thorn in the eyes of the Madrid team when there have been 25 shootings for Barcelona in 27 clashes with the Wanda Metropolitano.

However, for Messi to be praised, the Catalan team had to rely on the luck and excellence of goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. It was the defender Pique was lucky to escape the second yellow card in the second half with a bad foul on Alvaro Morata. Barcelona also avoided having to chase down when Marc-Andre ter Stegen made two brilliant saves in the first half.

In the early matches, Sevilla rose to third place only after Real and Barcelona were only 1 point behind the 1-0 victory over Leganes. Coach Julen Lopetegui’s team has extended the unbeaten series in all competitions to 10.

Arsenal dismissed Emery after a poor performance

Coach Unai Emery was fired by Arsenal club after only 18 months in power at the Emirates Stadium when the “Gunners” continued to bogged down in a crisis of performance with the worst record since 1992.

The 48-year-old Spaniard was sacked after losing a home match 1-2 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the penultimate round of Group F in the Europa League, which took place at dawn on November 29. Accordingly, assistant Freddie Ljungberg will assume the role of temporary Arsenal manager when the “Gunners” are targeting former Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri and coach Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolves Club) to replace Emery.

“We announce that the decision (to terminate the contract) has been made for coach Unai Emery and his coaching staff. The decision was made as a result and the performance was not satisfactory. We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to serve as temporary head coach”, the Arsenal club said in a statement. Meanwhile, Ljungberg – a former Swedish midfielder and once famous in Arsenal colors, said he will work hard to improve the atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium.

Currently, Arsenal are experiencing the worst series of achievements since 1992 when there have been no victories in 7 matches in all competitions. In the Europa League, the latest defeat caused Arsenal to have at least 1 point on the Standard Liege field in the last match to ensure the ticket to the round of 32 teams.

Emery was appointed to replace the legendary coach Arsene Wenger in May 2018 after a glorious career with many titles at Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain. The arrival of the 48-year-old strategist has received much hope to help Arsenal rediscover the highest position in the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

However, last season, Arsenal finished fifth and failed to qualify for the Champions League for the third year in a row. This achievement has raised doubts about the leadership of Emery when he was awarded 130 million pounds to supplement the force this season with winger Nicolas Pepe, midfielder David Luiz and defender Kieran Tierney left.

Despite this, despite being strengthened, “Gunners” still left a disappointing performance and was the only team in the top 10 with a negative goal difference (scored 18 goals and conceded 19 times). This has caused Arsenal fans to lose patience as they repeatedly asked the board to fire Emery.

Maradona resigned as a coach in Mexico to the hospital

According to Maradona’s Matias Morla lawyer, the 58-year-old legend of Argentine football has decided not to continue his position as coach of Dorados.

“On the advice of a doctor, Maradona will spend time for his health and will undergo two shoulder and knee surgeries,” the lawyer wrote on Twitter, adding: “We thank you all. Dorados family and will continue to dream together in the future”.

Maradona took on the hot seat at Club Dorados, a team based in the western state of Sinaloa, in September 2018. The presence of Argentine football “Golden Boy” has caused a lot of controversy, in which some have questioned why the 1986 World Cup champion, who has been so many times addicted to drugs and alcohol, moved to a place more famous for drug cartels than football.

Maradona, however, responded to his doubts by coaching the struggling Dorados club to the play-offs in the top-class Mexican playoffs last season. However, Dorados was unsuccessful in his promotion efforts. “Thanks for everything, Diego!”, Club Dorados knew on his Twitter account when he broke up with Maradona.

Maradona’s coaching career is also quite colorful as in real life when he always becomes a central figure with his overreacting statements or reactions. In April, the Argentine football legend talked about his intention to leave Dorados after accusing the tournament officials of plotting against him in some matches. The Mexican Football Federation then fined Maradona a sum of money (not disclosed) for violating the country’s political ethics for praising Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro at a press conference after a match in March.

In December, security guards once stopped a violent Maradona, cursing rival fans after Dorados lost in an extra-time play-off match with Atletico San Luis. Earlier, in the first leg, the “Golden Boy” had to watch the match from the stands after being sent off for abusive referee behavior in the situation the home team was denied an 11m penalty.

Maradona’s coaching career so far has not had the same glory as the remaining players. The dream of winning a title in a coaching role is still fleeing Maradona even though he has experienced the coaches of Argentina and his home clubs, the Middle East and the latest Mexico.

Bossaball – one of the weirdest sport in the world

Air-cushion volleyball (also known as Bossaball) comes from Spain and is currently developing quite strongly in Europe as well as South American countries.

Although in some countries, Bossaball is still strange to many people, but it has received the attention of many people. Reportedly, Bossaball was invented by Filip Eyckmans, a Belgian living in Spain. In 2004, Bossaball received a great response in Belgium and the Netherlands before becoming an indispensable spiritual dish on the beaches in Spain. Currently, Bossaball has appeared in many European countries and South American countries.

Coach Frank Lampard is loved by Chelsea fans

Usually, only the audience is praised by a coach or player when asked about the beauty of a team. Here’s the opposite situation.

Not known at the end of the season, Stamford Bridge fans have praised Lampard’s teachers or not. But for the moment, Lampard has praised Chelsea fans, saying that they are very smart!

Despite only standing in the lower half of the Premier League rankings, Lampard is still assured of the support of the Stamford Bridge audience. He commented on the intelligence of Chelsea fans: “They are very knowledgeable. The older fans saw and knew too much. Fans in the modern period have witnessed the situation of replacing the coach with different people and ways of playing”.

Lampard said true, or did he take the first step in the psychological battle with the fans? Whatever you want to infer. The problem is that right after complimenting the fans, Lampard made the Stamford Bridge audience excited again, with a 7-1 victory over Grimsby Town in the League Cup. This is Chelsea’s first home win this season.

Not to say more about the great youth of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount or Fikayo Tomori in the past matches. Now, another series of young players have just made their mark against Grimsby. Billy Gilmour was so small that before the ball rolled, people thought it was just the team mascot. Reece James is excellent. Callum Hudson-Odoi has shaken off the injury, returned and proved ready for matches at a higher level.

The problem is that with so many young players, there is not a way to play smoothly and smoothly. And, more generally, there is no real stable Chelsea at the moment. That was the important message that Lampard made, when he praised the Chelsea fans for being intelligent and patient. On the other hand, it can be said that Lampard has cleverly countered those who criticize Chelsea whenever the team fails.

Last season, it was Chelsea’s “Sarri-ball”. Nobody knows how Jorginho passes the ball. He was present almost exclusively to the ball, in the middle of the yard. Now Jorginho is the most prolific passer in the Premier League.

That is the difference between day and night! At one point, Lampard arranged a 4-2-3-1 scheme, but at times he returned to 4-3-3. At times, Chelsea overwhelmed, with the majority. At times, they suddenly exploit Jorginho’s long balls to attack quickly. All shows: there is still no stable Chelsea in terms of play (and achievement, of course). The analysis and dissection of expertise in the past matches so are only temporary. Only the understanding of Chelsea fans is stable!
