Djokovic wins ATP Finals opener

first_imgRelatedPosts Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title Djokovic zooms to 10th Italian Open final Djokovic fined $10,000 for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’ Novak Djokovic began his quest for a sixth ATP Finals title in style with a 6-2 6-1 victory against Italian Matteo Berrettini on Sunday.Berrettini, the 23-year-old debutant, relied on his big serving to keep things competitive against the world No 2 but a costly error handed the Serb a break in the sixth game and he soon wrapped up the set with a break to love.The eighth-ranked Italian, who reached the US Open semi-finals earlier this year, was not helped by 17 unforced errors, which were two more than the 15 points he won in the opening set.Berrettini was already looking deflated but Djokovic burst his bubble as he raced through the second set, despite a blip after dropping serve having won eight-straight games, to make a statement to world No 1 Rafael Nadal.Djokovic has made no secret of how much he values records and tying Pete Sampras by finishing a year ranked on top of the world for a sixth time, but he must at least reach the final of the season-ending tournament to stand a chance of overhauling Nadal. However, on this form it will take a juggernaut to stop him claiming the end-of-season title for a sixth time. Tags: Novak DjokovicRafael Nadallast_img read more

Masters 2019: Tiger Woods begins chase for fifth green jacket

first_imgTiger Woods, met with a deafening roar of approval at his first-tee introduction Thursday morning at the Masters, opened with a perfect drive to draw an even bigger response as he began the 2019 tournament on an Augusta National course, where he has thrilled fans for more than two decades.Seeking his fifth Masters title, his first since 2005, Woods teed off at 11:04 a.m. ET in a grouping with Haotong Li and Jon Rahm. Masters 2019: Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus get tournament underway “It proved to me that I could win again,” Woods said earlier in the week.That’s quite a difference from 2018, when Woods’ arrival at Augusta National was met with as much curiosity as fanfare in his return to the tournament coming off spinal fusion surgery. He finished tied for 30th last year at 6-under.This year? He clearly thinks his game is in shape to not only still compete with a young generation of golfers who weren’t around when he last one the Masters, but beat them, too, for a 15th major title that he has been waiting more than 10 years to get.”I would not have foreseen that for sure,” Woods said earlier this week. “After I won my 14th, I felt like I still had plenty of more major championships that I could win, unfortunately I just didn’t do it, I put myself there with chances on the back nine with various places, I just haven’t won. On the opening 445-yard par 4, Woods followed his drive with an iron to the middle of a receptive green on a hole that hasn’t been kind to him (he is 16-over par in his career on No. 1, known as “Tea Olive”). Woods two-putted from there for a tidy par and a steady start to the round.Playing in his second consecutive Masters after experiencing a litany of personal and physical problems, Woods arrived at the year’s first major with renewed confidence born out of his victory in the Tour Championship last fall.

Grassley discusses concerns about sanctuary cities

first_imgWASHINGTON — Iowa U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley is taking part in a Judiciary Committee hearing today on so-called sanctuary cities and their impact on public safety.Iowa banned sanctuary cities and counties with passage of a state law last year that revokes state funding to places that violate federal immigration law. Still, Grassley says sanctuary jurisdictions are a worry in Iowa — and across the country.Grassley says, “There may be law outlawing it in Iowa, but I think you’re going to find a lot of sheriffs in Iowa cautious about how they handle requests from the federal government.” He’s quick to point out that action — or inaction — by Iowa law officers isn’t based on their personal politics, but more on fear of litigation.Grassley says, “We’ve had organizations that go to court, let’s say they might be something like the ACLU as an example, threatening lawsuits if sheriffs cooperated with ICE and other immigration officials.” While Iowa City has pronounced itself as a safe haven to people who are in the U.S. illegally, city leaders have not designated the community as a formal sanctuary. The Iowa City city council vowed not to commit local resources to enforcing federal immigration law, which prompted passage of the 2018 state law against sanctuaries.Grassley says sanctuary proclamations elsewhere continue to be a concern. “You have an instance I think last week, the governor of California got somebody out of prison through his executive powers,” Grassley says. “He did it for the sole purpose so they wouldn’t be extradited and put out of our country.”Under the Iowa law, which took effect on July 1st of 2018, cities and counties are forbidden from prohibiting or discouraging law enforcement officers or other employees from “assisting or cooperating with a federal immigration officer as reasonable or necessary, including providing enforcement assistance.”last_img read more
