Džumhur Preparing for Wimbledon in Visoko: I am Surprised by Good Conditions

first_imgThe best BH tennis player Damir Džumhur, prepares for the Wimbledon at the tennis courts in Visoko.Džumhur found out that Visoko has lawn tennis courts, so he decided to use them to prepare as good as possible for what awaits him at Wimbledon.„Recently I found out that Visoko has a lawn court. This morning I went and practiced, I am happy because it is a great opportunity for me to prepare on the grass in B&H before departing to England. Practicing on clay before playing on grass makes no sense. Playing on the lawn court immediately made the preparations better. I am content with the conditions, I am generally surprised that such a court exists, as well as by its condition“, stated Džumhur.He plans on raising his form to the highest level before the grand tennis tournament.„I feel competitive, and I will also have a few matches on grass before Wimbledon, which will help me to prepare better and raise my form to the highest level“, our tennis player said.Damir is traveling to England this week already.„On Wednesday I am traveling to Liverpool where I will play an exhibition, and next week I will probably play the ATP tournament of the series 250 in Nottingham, and Wimbledon comes after that“, Džumhur concluded.He is currently ranked the 88th player on the ATP list with 539 points.Wimbledon is held from 29th of June to 12th of July, and its prize fund is 37 million Euros.(Source:klix.ba)last_img read more

MLB’s harsh suspension of Dodgers’ Joe Kelly sends warning to stop throwing at Astros players

first_imgMORE: What Joe Kelly said to Carlos Correa to spark get-togetherMLB also suspended Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for one game because of the intentional pitch.Kelly is appealing the suspension, which means he will be available out of LA’s bullpen for the Dodgers’ game in Houston on Wednesday night. Roberts cannot appeal his ban and will therefore sit out Wednesday’s contest.The commissioner’s office put itself in this position last winter by how it handled its investigation into sign-stealing by the Astros in 2017, the year they defeated the Dodgers in the World Series. Commissioner Rob Manfred gave Bregman, Correa and all the other active players from that team immunity in exchange for full disclosure about prohibited activities. A.J. Hinch, Carlos Beltran and Alex Cora lost managerial jobs in the aftermath.It was assumed that revelations of the Astros’ cheating would lead opponents to throw at hitters in retaliation. There was great anticipation in the spring that Bregman, Correa and Jose Altuve would wear a lot of fastballs this year. The Dodgers, who believe the Astros stole their title three years ago, got their opportunity because of MLB’s COVID-19 schedule revamp; the teams weren’t originally scheduled to meet this year.MORE: A timeline of the Astros sign-stealing scandalMLB’s actions last winter also made a wide swath of fans (and injured Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman) angry, and that’s why they both loved Kelly’s actions Tuesday (he said after the game that his 3-0 pitch behind Bregman and his curveball near Correa’s head weren’t intentional) and hated the decision by MLB vice president Chris Young, a former big league pitcher, to suspend Kelly. The hashtag #FreeJoeKelly trended on Twitter on Wednesday night.Makes zero sense Ken. He wasn’t even thrown out of the game. MLB siding with/protecting a team that openly and knowingly cheated their way to a World Series. He doesn’t deserve to be suspended at all. Hoping he wins his appeal. Looking forward to seeing you back out there JK! pic.twitter.com/Lekx8NHLRp— Marcus Stroman (@STR0) July 29, 2020Glad to see the MLB is finally cracking down on those cheating Astros players by*squints*Suspending Joe Kelly for 8 games#FreeJoeKelly pic.twitter.com/SlvmiMAwIc— Trash Boat (@TheOnlyKyleD) July 29, 2020Joe Kelly gets suspended for a strikeout and a walk.ZERO Astros players suspended for cheating every opponent they played for actual YEARS#FreeJoeKelly— Kenny G Poker (@poker_2019) July 29, 2020Suspending Joe Kelly 8 games is ridiculous. #freejoekelly pic.twitter.com/xgoY3GONHj— Marlie Braddy (@BraddyMarlie11) July 29, 2020Give him the MVP right now!😂💀 #FreeJoeKelly pic.twitter.com/3RByb4OKRg— Lane Lucero (@TheLifeOfLane) July 29, 2020Kelly wasn’t on the Dodgers in 2017, but he was a member of the Red Sox team that lost to the Astros in the ALDS that year. MLB came down hard on Joe Kelly for his lack of control.It suspended the Dodgers right-hander for eight games Wednesday after he threw a fastball behind the head of Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and sparked a benches-clearing staredown by trolling Astros shortstop Carlos Correa. MLB, it must be noted, also considered Kelly’s history of throwing at hitters and inciting brawls in handing out its suspension. He drilled the Yankees’ Tyler Austin with a retaliatory pitch in 2018, which prompted Austin to charge the mound and set off a fight.Another possible reason why MLB treated Kelly harshly: Players got too close to each other when the benches cleared Tuesday and violated MLB’s COVID-19 safety protocols. Only Kelly and Roberts were suspended, but MLB wants to keep such incidents at a bare minimum. Astros manager Dusty Baker, who was fined for his role in the incident, said after Tuesday’s game that Kelly’s pitch to Bregman was “dirty baseball” and that throwing at players’ heads has no part in the sport.last_img read more
