first_imgRafael Nadal extended his Grand Slam winning streak to 23 matches, continuing the chase for his “Rafa Slam” with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 win over American qualifier Ryan Sweeting in the second round of the Australian Open.Rafael Nadal keeps his eyes on the ball as he makes a backhand return to Ryan Sweeting during their second round match at the Australian Open in Melbourne on Thursday. APThe top-ranked Nadal is aiming to be the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time.He’s conceded only four games en route to the third round, sealing his win over Sweeting on Thursday with the last in a blizzard of forehand winners.After his quarterfinal exit at the last Australian Open, Nadal rebounded to win the French, Wimbledon and U.S. Open titles.Nadal hit some shots that Sweeting could barely believe, including a forehand on set point in the second when the Spaniard’s curling shot caught the baseline. With nothing to lose, Sweeting challenged the call as he walked off. The call stood.The only hint of anything other than complete domination for Nadal came in the third set, when Sweeting broke serve in the fifth game and then got within a point of bring it back to 4-2 in a game that went to deuce five times. Again, Nadal held on to convert a break and served out in the next game.”A few mistakes with the backhand, that’s all. My serve improved a lot since the first day. I think I was serving very well today,” Nadal said, noting the one blot on his serve was when he looked into the sun. “Movement good; backhand good; having a few more mistakes than usual. I have to play longer with the backhand. Maybe have to play a little bit more aggressive, more inside the court.”advertisementThat’s not good news for Nadal’s next opponent – 18-year-old Australian wildcard entry Bernard Tomic.Sweeting said he was overwhelmed by Nadal’s relentless accuracy and the fact he had to play so many shots just to earn a point.Tomic, the last Australian male left in the draw, advanced with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (3), 6-3 win over No. 31 Feliciano Lopez of Spain. Canada’s Milos Raonic also produced a second-round upset, beating No. 22 Michael Llodra of France 7-6 (3), 6-3, 7-6 (4).Kim Clijsters showed why she’s fast becoming a hot favorite for the women’s title by beating Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-3.U.S. Open champion Clijsters opened with a 6-0, 6-0 win over former No. 1-ranked Dinara Safina, but Suarez Navarro was a potentially dangerous second-round matchup. The 22-year-old Spaniard beat Venus Williams in a second-round upset in her first trip to Melbourne Park two years ago.”She is a tough player. She’s tricky. The balls bounce so much different than for my first round,” Clijsters said. “I was just happy with the way that I played. I tried to play both sides of the court, tried to be aggressive and dictate the points. And it worked.”With defending champion Serena Williams not playing in Australia due to a prolonged foot problem, third-seeded Clijsters is hopeful of going one better than her previous best performance at Melbourne Park – she lost the 2004 final.Her third-round 6-0, 6-1 loss here to Nadia Petrova last year was her worst in a major. It’s a defeat she claims she doesn’t dwell on and doesn’t think will influence her preparations for the same stage this weekend.”I don’t think I’ve ever played a match like that. So it was very easy in a way to also forget about it, as well,” Clijsters said.Joining her in the third round from the bottom half of the draw were No. 10 Shahar Peer, No. 12 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 13 Nadia Petrova and Iveta Benesova, who beat No. 18 Maria Kirilenko 6-3, 6-1.Seventh-seeded Jelena Jankovic lost 7-6 (3), 6-3 to China’s Peng Shuai, continuing an unimpressive streak of seven losses in eight matches. It was former world No. 1 Jankovic’s worst result at a major since the 2009 U.S. Open.Meanwhile, Clijsters has spent just two hours on court so far, leaving plenty of time to joke with the crowd and take a little swipe at on-court interviewer Todd Woodbridge, a former Australian doubles great. She lightheartedly chided Woodbridge about a text message he’d sent to fellow Australian Rennae Stubbs, suggesting Clijsters was showing physical and emotional signs of being pregnant.”No, I’m not!” said Clijsters, who took time off the tour when she married and had a child – daughter Jada, born in February 2008 – before returning to win the U.S. Open in 2009.advertisementWhile Clijsters and Nadal have advanced with ease, Venus Williams and defending men’s champion Roger Federer have encountered challenges.Williams injured a muscle between her stomach and groin Wednesday as she twisted for a volley. She needed a medical timeout after losing the first set. She was on the verge of tears, and apparently elimination. But she refused to stop playing and eventually beat Sandra Zahlavova of the Czech Republic 6-7 (6), 6-0, 6-4.Federer faced a more familiar problem – Gilles Simon. He’s one of only three men on tour with a winning record against the Swiss great.The 16-time Grand Slam champion admitted he was “happy I survived a scare” after winning in five sets.last_img read more


first_imgKolkata will be eager to maintain their 13-game winning streak as they take on Dolphins todayWelcome to the coverage of Match 18 in the Champions League Twenty20 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunfoil Dolphins from the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium in Hyderabad.ScorecardSunfoil Dolphins managed to score 151 runs while chasing an imposing total of 187 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders at Uppal. It is a comprehensive win for Kolkata and Gambhir’s men extend their unbeaten streak to 13 matches, which is the most by an Indian team. Yusuf and Russell struck early and had Dolphins at 6/2. van Wyk and van Jaarsveld rebuilt the innings, but fell in quick succession. Zondo and Phehlukwayo hit some meaty blows and kept them in the hunt, but once they perished it was just a matter of time for Kolkata to complete the formalities. Gambhir tried out a few different options, like opening the bowling with Yusuf, giving Suryakumar and Tendo a bowl. At the end, it was Narine who did most of the damage with his 3 wickets, he was well supported by the rest of the bowlers. Dolphins showed glimpses of what they are capable of, but return home without a win.Most consecutive wins in T20s!Top 3 Teams :- 25 Sialkot- 14 Otago- 13 #KKRCongrats Everyone @iamsrk @KKRiders !!

Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa are out in the middle for Kolkata while Kyle Abbott will start the proceedings for Dolphins. Toss: Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and elected to bat first against Sunfoil Dolphins. Kolkata, who have been riding on the wings of winning 13 matches in a row will take on the whipping boys of CLT20 2014, Dolphins. It is an inconsequential match in the sense that Kolkata have won all their three matches till now. At the other end of the spectrum, despite showing flashes of brilliance, Dolphins have lost all their games so far.Quotes:”I think the guys have taken up great responsibility. Unbelievable knock from Suryakumar Yadav(against Perth) and it’s the best knock I’ve seen from such a young guy. He’s got a great head on his shoulder and he’s got a great future. To see Kuldeep bowl well is very pleasing. We need someone who can compliment Sunil and Kuldeep is a perfect fit. Yusuf bowled well and it could help him in his batting as well. There is a lot of hunger in the dressing room and that is the secret about doing well,” Gautam Gambhir said.”It looked closer than it was really, but credit to Robbie for it. It would have been nice if there was a batsman to help him. We will learn from this experience. The batting was an issue, the bowling was OK, although we should have chased some 20 runs less. We want to show we can play good cricket, will look to do well against Kolkata. We can do much better, we will try and show the Dolphins brand of cricket. It has been a wonderful experience playing cricket in India, it is a wonderful country. It has been a good exposure for our guys, we can go back, work on our batting and do better in the future,” Morne van Wyk said after Dolphins lost a cliffhanger to Lahore Lions.Kolkata Knight Riders:Kolkata have shown the required resilience and self-belief to make their mark in the tournament. The likes of Ryan Ten Doeschate, Andre Russell, Gautam Gambhir and Suryakumar Yadav have chipped in with useful runs as and when required under pressure-cooker situations.It shows that they don’t just depend on one or two players in the batting line-up to make their mark.However, it has been their bowlers, who have played a pivotal role in helping them to win games. They have wicket-taking spinners like Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav to make those crucial breakthroughs. Narine has always been a threat with his box of tricks.However, the emergence of Yadav, with his left-arm chinaman bowling has added more firepower to their line-up. Till now most of the batsmen have failed to pick Yadav’s variations.Sunfoil Dolphins:Kolkata’s opponents, Dolphins, have played with boyish enthusiasm in CLT20. However, they don’t have the results to show for it. It is up to them to put up a fine performance in their last game of the tournament and at least go back to South Africa with a win under their belt.Among their bowlers, Kyle Abbott has bowled well in patches. The seamer can trouble the batsmen with the new ball, as he hits good lines and lengths and sticks to his plans. Robbie Frylinck, who impressed one-and-all in their last game against Lahore Lions can vary his pace and when needed, bowl yorkers.In the batting department, Khaya Zondo, Morne van Wyk, the captain and Cameron Delport have caught the eye, but haven’t been consistent enough. It was Frylinck yet again whose power-hitting against Lahore sent the crowd into a tizzy. Their ground fielding has been of acceptable standards.Teams(from):Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir(c), Robin Uthappa(wk), Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Ryan ten Doeschate, Suryakumar Yadav, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Jacques Kallis, Pat Cummins, Manvinder BislaSunfoil Dolphins: Morne van Wyk(c/wk), Cameron Delport, Cody Chetty, Keshav Maharaj, Jonathan Vandiar, Khayelihle Zondo, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Robert Frylinck, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kyle Abbott, Prenelan Subrayen, Daryn Smit, Daryn Miles Dupavillon, Craig Alexander, Sibonelo Makhanyalast_img read more
